Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie-rella

~Product was received to facilitate this review of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie-rella DVD. All opinions are my own.

Cinderella is my favorite Disney movie and my kids both LOVE Mickey and Minnie Mouse so when I heard about the new Cinderella-inspired Minnie-rella movie, I was super excited! MAYBE more excited than my kids, haha, but when they saw the DVD they couldn’t wait to watch it. “MICKEY!!!!” Ryan told his preschool class that his dream is to go to Disney World and meet Mickey, haha.

All of our Clubhouse friends want to

Mickey Mouse DVD: Super Adventure!

Mickey Mouse is a classic and will always be a favorite. Ryan loves him and all his pals (Goofy is his favorite!) and Rebecca is learning about Mickey now, too. Or… “Kee!” as she calls him, haha. Ryan talks about going to Mickey’s Clubhouse and meeting all of them… someday! So of course we had to get the new Mickey Mouse DVD: Super Adventure!

This Mickey Mouse DVD is a new full-length adventure with Mickey and his friends, plus 3 more bonus episodes!

Zoom! Wow! It’s Super Mickey, Wonder

I want allllllll the Disney movies. I remember going over to my 2nd grade teacher’s house when I was a little kid (why? I have no idea), but I DO remember that she had a bookshelf FULL of Disney movies. I mean, like every one ever. And I.was.jealous. It instantly became my life goal, haha. Now with the new releases on Blu-ray and DVD (and, oh yea, it’s FOR THE KIDS, I

Peter Pan’s Return to Neverland!

Ryan is loving all things PIRATE right now. It started when he discovered Jake and the Neverland Pirates… since then he pretends to be a pirate, steering his ship (the swingset) in our backyard, yelling “ahoy!” and keeping us all safe from the “bad” pirates. It’s been too much fun (maybe a pirate themed birthday party this winter?!) so when I was sent Peter Pan: Return to Neverland for review I couldn’t wait to show him!

Ryan’s best pirate face, complete with a “born to be wild” pirate shirt! (Cozumel)

Win a trip to Disney!

Steve and I have been considering our next vacation… will it be to a beach, maybe just the two of us, or will it be a family vacation at Disney? Ryan has recently learned about Mickey Mouse and the whole gang and I know he’d be sooo excited to see them all. I’ve been to Disney a few times, but not in YEARS! Or… do we wait a few years until Rebecca can enjoy it, too?! Or go now and later? 😉 I vote for both!

family nights with my babies

I have an older brother and when we were little, we had “family night” one night a week. Many of my childhood memories come from these nights. My parents would take turns with each kid every week so my brother and I got quality alone time with each parent, without the other sibling around. We’d switch the activity each week, too–so one week we’d stay in and play board games or make a craft and the next week we’d go out to an arcade or mini-putting or our “special place.”

I really want to
