Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book

We’ve had some pretty crazy weather over the last few weeks, and my boys are definitely getting stir crazy. There seems to only be so many coloring pages, puzzles, and preschool games that can fill the time. Luckily, one of my boys’ favorite shows, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, has a brand new Disney DVD out- Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book. I knew this would be the perfect relief for never ending snow days, so we had a fun Pirate Movie Night, complete with swords, pirate hooks, and popcorn! Yo-ho mateys away!! The Battle … …..

This Christmas Give a Gift That’s Totally Out of this World –Guardians of the Galaxy on DVD or Blu-Ray

This #OwnTheGalaxy shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. When Dustin and I first started dating we loved going to the movie theater to see films just as they were being released.  And then we had kids.  All of a sudden going to the movies just wasn’t at the top of our priority list anymore, but there still always seems to be a movie I am just dying to see.  Now instead of heading to the theater on opening day I patiently wait for them to be released on DVD.  One movie … …..

Kick Off Your Morning with Honey Nut Cheerios & Usher

Thanks to Honey Nut Cheerios for sponsoring today’s discussion. On school days the girls know we follow a pretty strict routine in the morning.  It’s the only way I know we’re going to get out of the house on time and get everyone where they need to be.  The first thing on the schedule is making sure their tummies are filled with a healthy breakfast.  Most mornings all of my girls want cereal and their favorite happens to be Cheerios though they each prefer a different flavor.  I love that they love Cheerios because it makes saying yes to cereal … …..

Vision Comes from Within with 23 Blast- In Theaters 10/24/2014

One of the fun things that we love to do as a family is watch movies. This year in particular, we discovered an amazing drive-in about an hour from our home that only costs us $10 for all 5 of us to watch a movie under the stars. While the summer was a blast, as the weather is turning colder, it’s back to movie night in at our house and at the theater as a treat. While I love the thrillers and funny comedies, I also love to look for movies that I’d be comfortable watching with family and friends, … …..

Preparing for a Disney Junior Minnie Mouse Slumber Party

This #JuniorCelebrates shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Do you have any Disney Junior fans in your house?  All of my girls absolutely love watching Minnie Mouse, Sofia the First, and Doc McStuffins.  And if their not actually watching the shows then they typically can be found playing with Disney Junior toys or singing songs from the shows.  Time for your checkup! / Time for your checkup! / I’m gonna check your ears / Check your eyes / Find out how much you’ve grown… I might even join in from time … …..

Enjoy Grimy, Sandy, Outdoor Fun with the new The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Trucks Versus Wild DVD

In a home with boys, I’m often overrun with “manly” things… like sports balls, cars, and trucks. And trucks that can talk? Even better, they say! So naturally, my boys love to watch The Adventures of Chuck & Friends by Hasbro Studios and Shout! Kids Factory on The HUB TV Network. We recently had movie night with the boys after we received the newly released Chuck DVD- The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Trucks Versus Wild. The house ran wild with testosterone (well, not really… it will someday, I’m sure hehe). But the Chuck & friends toy trucks came rolling … …..

A Bed For Fred & A Book For You! {Review & Giveaway}

I grew up with a huge bookshelf overflowing with books, and I knew that I wanted my kids to have the same thing growing up. So early on in my first pregnancy, we started collecting new and used books that would be appropriate for all ages. As our family expanded and the boys grew, we added books based on life events coming up- books on the dentist, having a new baby, the potty chair, and other exciting milestones. So recently, we added A Bed for Fred, written by Lori Zoss and illustrated by Cheri Polk, to our collection. A Bed … …..

Never Wordless Wednesday: Story Time with Pappy

This year we decided to do a book advent calendar.  Every evening before bed the girls have taken turns unwrapping a new book and listening to mom or dad read.  Some of them have been rather funny like… Throughout the book the curious mouse peeks in his friends diapers only to find lots and lots of poop.  In fact you can lift the flap and see just what that poop looks like, hehe.  At the end his friends ask mouse to show them his diaper and they find it is empty.  He explains that he uses the potty and they … …..

Go on a “Super Adventure!” with Mickey Mouse {DVD Review}

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E It’s the Mickey Mouse clubhouse come inside its fun inside! Yeah I have heard that opening song for The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show on Disney Junior probably more times than I would like to actually admit. Corbin is a Mickey-holic and slowly Gavin is becoming one too. So I knew when we were offered the opportunity to review Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Super Adventure on DVD that it was an opportunity that I could not turn down. When the DVD arrived my little Mickey-holic was so excited and couldn’t wait to have me pop in the DVD. The DVD … …..

Yo-Ho Let’s Go! with “Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Never Land Rescue” DVD

We have two little boys that love Mickey Mouse and everything Disney, but they especially love watching Jake and the Never Land Pirates on Disney Junior.  During our trip to Disney World last year, Aiden was incredibly scared of all of the characters until he saw Jake.  At that point (followed by the long scream of “JJJJJAAAAAKKKKEE!!! I’M HERE!” to the poor guy), Disney World became so much more fun.  So to prep for our upcoming trip to Disney World in a few weeks, the boys were really excited to get the brand new “Jake and the Never Land Pirates: … …..
