How To Host A Book Swap Party by Laura Churchhill Duke

I love to read. I will read just about anything. However, when I walk into a book store I often feel overwhelmed about what to buy. I’d rather someone just give me a good book to read. I am also a huge fan of flea market book sales for charity. I come home with arm loads of books to try (that the attendant has told me are good). I am also in a book club. Because of this, my shelves are full of books that I have finished but don’t want to … [Read more...]

Enjoy the Holiday Magic on Disney Junior this December

December brings so much magic to our homes.  The holidays are here and it is truly time to celebrate.  For kids it can be all consuming, and the magic that comes along with the holidays is something that I truly adore.  It is my favorite part.  Watching my childrens eyes glow with wonder and amazement as they admire the christmas lights, as they sing carols and perform in their school plays.  Christmas is truly my favorite time of year.

Welcoming November with Family Movies on Disney Junior

Story – Free App From Disney

I am always looking for a fun way to feature the hundreds and hundreds of pictures I take with my phone...any given event that my children take part in will come complete with a full gig of pictures. I just can't help myself... My thoughts tend to be along the lines of, take a bunch and hope that one or two turn out to be print worthy. But, then I'm left with so many pictures still on my phone. I cannot delete them, it's an impossible act for … [Read more...]

Getting To Disney World – Revamping the Saving For Disney Series

In my house you will find many mason jars.  Their intended purpose (to preserve food) is the last thing you will find them used for.  See, I am a save-a-holic with very little saving skills.  I get an idea, and I start a jar for it. Basically because loose change is all I've ever had to work with.  But our family budgeting skills are getting better, and I think it's time to revamp our Saving For Disney challenge we bagan earlier this … [Read more...]

The Little Mermaid Returns To Disney Junior
