Oh man. ET. I can’t wait to introduce my other kiddos to this movie. My oldest wasn’t a big fan, so hoping my others will enjoy it because its one of my faves!
I could watch E.T. over and over and still cry. It is such a classic and I know even my grandkids would love it.
The Goonies is a fantastic movie. My kids love watching it. The Dark Crystal is another fantastic movie for the whole family.
