Last week my daughter and I had the chance to attend the advance screening of  Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet. A spin off of Wreck it Ralph, and it did not disappoint. From the moment the movie started, we laughed and laughed. I could not wait to see this movie. I had seen the previews many times and it looked so good. I love the first movie and knew this would be a good one! It was long overdo.

There are so many good parts in this movie I don’t know where to start. Many jokes only parents might get…. especially when Venelope is in the Princess room…. we laughed and laughed during those scenes.

I just love the fact that kids can learn HOW the internet somewhat works. They get to see the good and the bad. The internet is our future and kids really need to understand how it all works. With online bullying so big, this movie shows how people can be mean online and things can go from good to bad fast. With viruses popping up and showing how destructive the internet can really be. The visuals were just amazing.

I love how Ralph was fighting for his friend. Right till the end, he stood up for her and was trying to get her back to her game. I don’t want to spoil the movie, but there are so many teachable moments in this film. It’s great to have a discussion after seeing it about how the internet works and how it’s so real. Sure games are fun and make believe, but social media is real- the internet is real.

 

This is definitely a must see in my books. A great movie for the whole family. We loved it and I can’t wait to see it again. Opens in Theatres November 21.

 

 

 

 

 

West Island Mommies fans – we are calling on you to help out this holiday season!

We are teaming up with local food bank On Rock to help families in need in the West Island this holiday season. On Rock is a food bank located in Pierrefonds that delivers much needed food to close to 300 families every week. For Christmas they will be delivering a food basket to each of these families so that they can enjoy a traditional Christmas meal and with the food basket, they also include a box of gifts for the children under 18 in the family.

This year we will be helping to collect new toys/items/gift cards so that each of these families will have something to put under the tree for their kids. This is where you come in! Here is what they are in need of:

  • Ages 1-4
  • Ages 5-7
  • Ages 8-10
  • Ages 11-13
  • Ages 14 to 20yrs old

While they are in need of gifts for all ages, the older groups are always the hardest to fill, so we want to help them in all age groups. New toys for the younger ages are great, but they are looking for gift cards to give out to the older kids as well. A suggested amount for the gift cards would be about $10 to $15 for some shopping (ie. Fairview) or perhaps to the movies, chapters, Pharmacy, Walmart, Visa, Etc. Please arrange for a drop off on these items and not to our drop off locations.

All gifts should be dropped off unwrapped, and there are various drop-off points in the West Island.  We have 3 drop off locations this year. For Gift cards please contact me at westislandmommies@gmail.com

The holidays are around the corner. Time to plan ahead and order your child’s very own personalized messagefromsanta.ca letter.

Do your kids mail out a letter to santa every year? I know you can send a letter to Santa via Canada post and then they send out a very generic letter to everyone. The same letter over and over again. Well have I got the next best thing for you.

Check out messagefromsanta.ca. Order your child’s personalized letter from Santa. Right down to the gifts they want and everything. There are many package offerings available with just the letter or some extra added items that will make your child feel special.

 

 

You can choose the sample letter or you can send in your own version. You can choose which design you would like and which package. Then come December, your child will receive a beautiful package in the mail. How cool is that??

The prices start at 12.99$ and go up to 34.99$ with so many choices to choose from.  From personalized items to magic reindeer food, your child will be amazed!

 

Check out my video review on these super cool products. All created by a local mom entrepreneur. Support Local businesses and sign up today for your letter to santa!

You can visit them on Facebook or directly on their site to order.
