One of the best things about being a Nana is we get to watch movies together and make new memories. Our Tater sure enjoys his tv time, but watching movies with Nana is his favorite. We watched Encanto and for a 3 year old to be enthralled with a movie is saying something. But Encanto was magical to say the least and the songs were out of this world. It is a must watch for every family! Encanto signifies charm, glamor, spell, delight, or joy and the movie proves to be true to the definition of Encanto.
We all have a magical gift and the folks at Disney are bringing us a special family! Mirabel might be the answer to all of the troubles, but Antiono will be there to help her as well as family.” I believe in you you just need to believe in yourself.”
