a mother's day gift idea

somehow, since moving to chicago, we have developed a sunday night tradition where we eat pancakes for supper and then all watch a movie together as a family.  recently, we had spent a fun night together watching the black stallion.  both bill and i remember watching this growing up, and it was fun to share it with the kids.

it is rare to find a movie that can connect with all three kids, especially now that zoe is hankering after movies that are a little more grown up and with tate getting bored by anything that isn't handy manny or veggie tales.

the black stallion intrigued each kid on a different level.  tate loved the excitement of the horse race.  zoe loved the connection between the horse and the boy and tessa is just glad that everyone was happy at the end.

bill and i also enjoy watching a movie together once we have put the kids down for bed.  living as far away from family as we do, this is about as good as we can do for a date night.

this mother's day, i wouldn't mind getting a movie to add to our collection of possible date night or family night movies.  just like at easter, 20th century fox and mgm home entertainment are promoting the release of some old and new favorite movies.  personally, i would love to get little miss sunshine, or raising arizona (hint, hint, bill).  some of you might prefer in her shoes, a walk in the clouds, the devil wears prada or even the graduate or some like it hot.

check it might find something you want even more than a bunch of flowers.

i received a copy of the black stallion as a thank you for writing about this promotion. i have in no other way been compensated for this promotion.
