Jack Frost takes a 3D animation adventure to save all that is good and nice in the world.
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the Sandman draft Jack Frost to be in their gang to guard against all things evil as they protect the magical state of childhood in "Rise of the Guardians." The film is playing now at GTC Park 12 Cobb and GTC Merchants Walk 12 Cinema. Stars such as Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine and Isla Fisher lend their voices to this visually stunning film perfect for the holiday season. I'll be the first one to say that it's easy to be cynical about holiday movies but this one won't let you. This certainly isn't a Judeo-Christian holiday-themed film, as you might imagine.

Happy Holy Saturday, Northeast Cobb. This day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday is packed with Easter egg hunts, and we'd love to see as many photos and videos as possible of the community fun.

And at 235 from mulberry, oak and sycamore trees, the pollen count isn't too bad, according to the Atlanta Allergy & Asthma Clinic.

Spring break and Easter in the same week. I spent last week racing around to get the goodies for the boys' Easter baskets because I knew I wouldn’t be seeing any alone time this week.
My mom always made Easter baskets like a mini Christmas, so of course I have to follow in her footsteps because I loved it as a kid. Also, I can’t forget those fantastic plastic eggs that are so much fun to cram candy in for the all important Easter Egg Hunt. One thing we've incorporated from my husband’s family is putting money in the eggs. Not much...just some pocket change and then a “Golden Egg” that has a $5 bill in it. But back to the plastic eggs...is it me or do those things multiply? They are like Christmas lights--you never think you have enough so you buy new ones and then find the mother load from last year. Even if I take the candy and leave the eggs at egg hunts we attend I still have enough plastic eggs to stock the …
