Top Ten Tuesday - Kids movies

Sophie had her ear tubes put in this morning. She did great! The doctor said everything went as planned and that we should let her relax the rest of the day. She is a bit woozy still. So we turned on her favorite movie and let the kids sit and watch a movie. This doesn't happen all that often. Maybe once a week do the kids watch a full length movie. We do watch our half hour of Signing Time or Bob the Builder most afternoons but a whole movie is a treat. I thought today I would share some of my kids favorite films. These are the ones that we watch over and over again.

1. Alice in Wonderland - This is Sophie's absolute favorite film. It is currently playing in the background as I type.

2. Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 - My kids love these films. Sophie can tell you the name of and the composer for each of the songs. We even have the soundtracks so we listen to them all the time and the kids tell me what would be happening during that song in the film.

3. Toy Story 1 & 2 - Ian's favorite films. He loves Buzz and Woody and even has a Woody doll that sleeps with him.

4. The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, and Cars - Can we just say we love Pixar films.

5. The Sword in the Stone - My boys love this one. Knights and swords are always good to entertain boys. Sophie loves the parts where Merlin and Arther turn into fish, squirrls and birds.

6. Mary Poppins - What kid wouldn't love this film. Great songs and fun story. A little long so we tend not to finish it in one go.

7. Winnie the Pooh - this was the first Disney film we ever bought and Sophie used to watch it a lot. Ian loved it for awhile and now Henry picks it. This is one we usually watch in the car when traveling to Grandma's house.

8. Sound of Music - We don't usually watch this one in one sitting but my kids love the music. This is another one that we have the soundtrack for and listen to quite often. The kids usually just want to see the songs and skip the rest.

9. Singing in the Rain - This is one of the films I have introduced to the kids recently and I think we should get the soundtrack for. I have caught Ian "Singing in the Rain" while in the shower. I have been trying to introduce some of the old musicals to the kids. I grew up watching them. Plus I don't want my kids to turn their noses up at old movies. I love the classics.

10. Spy Kids - Sophie saw this film when we were on our cruise. They showed it in the kid zone one day. We happened to own it. We must have found it very cheep a few years ago. So now she watches this one. I don't really care for the sequels but the first one is good.

We love watching most of the same movies as you guys. My kids went on a "Spy Kids" craze. Now they are into "Shark boy and Lave girl."

So glad Sophie's ear tubes went as planned!! How long is the recovery/adjustment period?

We hardly ever watch movies. I've bought some for the kids but they just don't care to watch them...at least not more then once, which doesn't justify the cost!

Their absolute favorite is Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, and I must say, mine too!

Sophie was back to normal after lunch. She just relaxed that morning and then ate a big lunch since she didn't have any breakfast. And she was back up and crazy as ever all afternoon. We even did some School in the afternoon.
