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 »

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 »

I received a copy of the Idina Menzel holiday album “Holiday Wishes” as a member of One2One Network in order to facilitate my review. All words and opinions are my own.

I’ve been listening to Christmas music for awhile now.  I have a pretty solid collection and each year it seems to grow.  This year I’ve already added one new album to my playlist and it’s one I think you’ll love.

New Idina Menzel holiday album "Holiday Wishes"

Now, you’ve probably heard the name Idina Menzel at this point.  She was the voice of Elsa in this little Disney movie Frozen?  And by “little” I mean a “global box-office smash”.  Did you know, though, that she was already a Tony award-winning actress and singer before that? Continue reading »

The other day I shared with you my Disney Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition review.  But, as they always say, there are two sides to every story.  Until recently, we only knew that Aurora was good and Maleficent was evil.  The live-action tale of Disney’s Maleficent, available tomorrow on Blu-ray and DVD, may give you a different outlook on the classic tale.

Maleficent Review - Angelina Jolie as Maleficent

Whether or not you’re specifically a Disney Villain fan, you will love this movie.  You will also have Lana Del Rey’s “Once Upon a Dream” stuck in your head for approximately the rest of your life.  And that’s not a bad thing at all. Continue reading »

Now that Bubbles is older, I feel confident in taking her to see movies at the theater.  She loves the experience of the big chairs and the big screen, and even if she doesn’t always catch every joke or nuance, she likes laughing along with everyone else.  And if she also gets to order some popcorn, she’s in seventh heaven.

The Cooper Family Surviving Another Day inin Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, #VeryBadDay

When I received the invite for us to attend a screening this past week for Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day I suspected that it would be a good choice for the whole family.  It is, after all, based on the children’s book of the same title.  Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was a book I remember enjoying as a kid, and so I was interested to see how it would translate to the big screen.
