Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and a giveaway!

Last week the kiddos and I had the opportunity to head over to the Fox Lot for a sneak preview of the DVD release of Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. I can tell you this- We can’t wait for next Tuesday’s March 30th’s release date. The DVD features are fun and well it’s just an enjoyable movie for the entire family.

There are many fun features to the DVD, however my favorite has to be “Shake Your Groove Thing! With Rosero” (8:58), which teaches viewers some dance moves to accompany the music. You can also practice these moves with the music video selection. It is a pretty fun DVD.
