My thoughts:
I am always on the lookout for new and fun movies for us to watch as a family. I just finished watching Rise of the Guardians and this is one super cute movie. I love that different holiday characters come together for one movie. There is just something fun about watching Santa work side by side the Easter Bunny. The Bogeyman is up to no good and the team has to stop him. He has taken the children's teeth and with it their memories. Jack Frost is sad about children's disbelief in him but somehow they must all work together for the children.

Side note is that I also love Santa's naughty and nice arm tattoos!


When I asked Big Sis what she thought of the movie her response was "it was super duper awesome." It just does not get any better than that.

Best of all Big Sis and Husband loved the movie too. We don't get to just sit around and enjoy a movie too often so it was so nice to have a themed movie for Easter coming up. Yeah, I am sort of in shock....Easter is almost here! Rise of the Guardians is the perfect gift for those Easter baskets. Add in the bonus of 2 cute eggs you have the perfect holiday gift. I think it is a great movie for kids and even better is that adults can enjoy watching it too!
