Before we get onto the fun and humorous movie of the month, we’ll start out with some salty tears from Coco. First off, I saw this movie at 11pm, so I was already pretty exhausted after our Thanksgiving feast. Secondly, I was really not expecting to love the Frozen short as much as I did. I knew that I was in for a long night once I started wiping tears away about a snowman.
