Fun Family Flicks: Monday Mention December 28, 2009


Maybe you’ve got a lot of time on your hands this winter break, and you need some great movies to fill the hours and entertain your kids. Maybe you just like to watch a family flick now and then. In our house, we have family movie night — we’re having lots of them over the holidays — and we’re finding inspirational sports stories are really fun for two young boys. Stuck on which movies to borrow from the library (free!), I polled my Facebook friends for ideas. Here’s what I got in return — mostly sports, but a few others thrown in for good measure. We’ve already watched a few, and we’ve got lots more on our to-watch list. If you want to steal from this list for your own family fun nights, feel free. If you’ve got any special films you fancy, please share in the comments!
