Every year in December a bumper crop of new Holiday Kids Movies makes their debut. This year is no exception with many of the new films starring characters kids recognize from their favorite movies. Many of these movies are available at CPL now, with more on the way in the coming weeks. These are great solutions when you need some down time to make dinner (or squirrel away to wrap some gifts). Here are some of this year's offerings:

LB went to Chicago for the Memorial Day weekend. Look at the cool sculpture LB is standing by in this picture. It's called Cloud Gate, but most people just call it the Bean. Mmmm. That makes me hungry. Unfortunately, this bean isn't edible. Guess I'll have to check out some books about beans from the library and learn how to grow my own. Have you ever done that? It's pretty easy. And a fun thing to do over the summer… which is almost here! Yay! It's certainly felt like summer the last few days. I can't wait for it to get here.
Until next time!
