Congratulations to Mollie Bryan, who won the drawing for the $75 ScanDigital gift card! Mollie will love having her family’s old videos, slides or photos (or all three!) put on a DVD to preserve them for future generations. It also makes them a lot easier to enjoy right now.

Thanks to the great folks at ScanDigital for providing the giveaway for Parent Talk Today readers. And thanks to those who entered!

P.S. I love this photo of my husband, Randy, with Santa. (Seems Santa was a bit more somber back in the day!)

Take the Kids to See “Up”

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Our family just got back from seeing Disney Pixar‘s new movie, “Up,” and all I can says is take the kids and go see it! So much fun. (It’s rated PG and there are some scenes that might be scary to younger children.)

We had a choice between the 3-D version and the regular version and decided to spend the extra $2 per ticket for the 3-D version, but we didn’t find the 3-D effects to be all that spectacular.

So don’t worry if the 3-D version is sold out and you are left with the regular version, because more important than the 3-D effects are the terrific Pixar animation and the wonderful story (I laughed! I cried! And I fell in love with Ed Asner’s cranky old man.)

Check out the preview below. (Click on the box to get rid of the Google ads that run in the bottom of the trailer. They came with the trailer and I couldn’t remove them.) Then go see this movie!
