The older Bubbles gets, the more fun the holidays are.  Her excitement and anticipation are infectious and make me look forward to all the activities and festivities even more.  It was no surprise to me that with the sighting of Easter goodies in stores, that she has started to ask about when the Easter Bunny will be coming.

Disney Princess Glittery Homemade Silly Putty Tutorial #DisneyEaster

Putting together a basket for her is one of my favorite parts of the season.  Last year I made her a DIY tutu skirt basket and added a homemade playdough carrot.  She had such fun with that aspect of it that I decided I wanted to do something similar this year. Continue reading »

Earlier this week we were invited to attend a screening of the new live-action Disney’s Cinderella movie.  After weeks of being snowed in, iced in, sick, and snowed in some more (nearly 18″ the first weekend of March. seriously) it was an evening out that both Bubbles and I were looking forward to.  We made it a complete mother-daughter night with dinner out before the movie.

Bubbles was especially excited about the short film Frozen Fever that was showing before Cinderella.  She has been smitten with Elsa, Anna and crew since the moment she first saw them on the screen in Frozen and this was no exception.  She never took her eyes off the screen for the entire thing and only spoke once to tell me, “I love Elsa’s new dress”.

Our plans for Valentine’s Day are starting to take shape.  We’ve decided to go out to lunch for a family “date” in the afternoon, and then that night we may do the indoor picnic about which she’s been asking.  Then probably finish up with one of the family-friendly movies for Valentine’s Day that I shared a bit ago.

Kick off Valentine's Day with your kiddos by watching the new Doc McStuffins Cuddle Me Lambie DVD. Includes free Lambie hair clips, too!

In the morning, of course, we’ll have breakfast.  Maybe some heart-shaped toast with peanut butter to go with her yogurt (her breakfast repertoire isn’t very deep).  After that we like to spend a little time snuggling and watching one of her shows together. Continue reading »

A few weeks ago I received one of the emails that, as a blogger, a movie lover and a Disney fan, makes you stand up and squeal loudly enough that your husband asks what on Earth is wrong.  I was being invited back to L.A. by Disney to cover the #McFarlandUSAEvent.

Kevin Costner stars in McFarland, USA #McFarlandUSAEvent

Unfortunately, due to a previous commitment, I had to turn down the trip.  I was pretty heart-broken to have to do so, as the trip was going to cover some exciting entertainment news that I have been looking forward to. Continue reading »

Just thinking about Jake & The Neverland Pirates the fun theme song pops into my mind.  Sometimes a song getting in your head like that isn’t a great thing, but when it’s Jake it’s awesome.  It puts a little bounce in your step and a smile on your face.

Disney Junior's Jake and the Neverland Pirates Battle for the Book - comes with a fun (free!) checkerboard bandana game and tokens right in the case.

Jake and his friends are characters we really enjoy.  In fact the LeapFrog LeapTV Disney Jake and The Never Land Pirates game has become Bubbles very favorite to play on our LeapTV. And, of course, we watch on Disney Junior. Continue reading »
