Since my kids are old enough to sit during an entire movie now, we've been doing a "family movie night" once a week.  It's so fun!  Popcorn, blankets and pillows, snuggles and giggles!

The thing is, I've been having a hard time picking family friendly movies that we'll all enjoy.

So far we've seen 'Frozen', 'Mary Poppins', 'The Sound of Music', 'Mean Girls' and 'The Lego Movie'.  We'll probably do 'The Goonies' this week - my husband's choice. Ha!

So, when I saw Entertainment Weekly's list of 55 Essential Movies Kids Mush Experience (Before They Turn 13) I was excited to get a few more ideas!

Remember these?

-The Muppet Movie



-Home Alone

-Back to the Future


-Jurassic Park

I'm excited for this weekend!  Now I feel like it's going to be even more fun to pick out movies together!
