Yay, it’s that time again – time to watch new movies and this Thanksgiving weekend is not that far away! After New Moon, do you think we will find a movie to top that? Of course we will, Eclipse! However, we have awhile (sometime in June, so I heard) before we get to see Edward, Jacob and Bella, so for now, we have to settle for these 5 new movies coming out this Thanksgiving:

This is an unforgettable tale of love, discovery and enchantment. There is a playing alligator, a Cajun firefly who is love sick and a wide array of other charming characters.
If you noticed, each week, when I write the blogs I try to give you at least one good move to go see with the children. I am a firm believer in spending time with the children and letting them enjoy going to the movies as well. If you have children, then The Princess and the Frog will be a great laugh.
Other than that, what movies are theater worthy according to you? Have your children been bothering you to see The Princess and the Frog?
