Christmas Break Movie Releases For The Family!

It’s so nice to be on holiday break from school! No ECFE (Early Childhood Family Readiness which is for 0-5 year olds) or preschool for Danika. That means more laid back days that we get to spend together. This week I had a fun movie day planned for the kids!

They were so excited for the “surprise snacks” I was bringing them to eat while we watched our movie. Amazing what the little things in life can do for your child. They got lemonade in their sippy cups and had an assortment of popcorn, pretzels, raisins and goldfish crackers.
