This Disney Princess shop and homemade silly putty tutorial has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DisneyEaster #CollectiveBias

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/Pixar’s BRAVE opens in theaters today!  Are any of you planning to see it today?
