Ice Castles {Dillon, CO}

Most weekends in January and February, we take advantage of living in Colorado and go skiing.  Our favorite, and most visited, resort is in the Dillon area and we love spending the weekends there.

This year, we can't wait to check out the Ice Castles!

Christmas Books from Parragon Book Buddies

One of our longtime holiday traditions with the kids has been Christmas books.

When the oldest was a baby, I bought a bunch of seasonal books after the holidays and tucked them away.  The next year, I brought out a huge box of "new" books for her and our tradition began.  Each year, I added a few more and they'd look forward to pulling them out the next season.  They still do, and I still add new ones.  This year, Parragon Books sent us some new ones to add to our collection.

The Art of the Moulin Rouge {Review}

We spent part of our honeymoon in Paris and one of the things we had to do was visit the Moulin Rouge.  When the musical came out the following year, we saw it right away in the theater and loved knowing we had actually been there.

It's been quite a few years since we've been to Paris, but I was very happy to receive a copy of The Art of the Moulin Rouge to review and create artwork with.

Disney's COCO {Review & Printables}

Last month, we had the chance to preview Disney's COCO.  I've been waiting for this movie, ever since we saw the first previews, especially since the dog is named Dante.

And, as usual, Disney Pixar did an amazing job with their latest film--the music, the animation, the storyline, we absolutely loved it!

Sun Tail Mermaid Tails {Review}

Who wouldn't love to be a mermaid?

Mermaid swim fins are an awesome holiday gift and not just for the little ones on your list.  This year, we are partnering with Sun Tail Mermaid Tails and it was my 15 year old who desperately wanted one!  She has mermaid aspirations too.

Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown {Review}

Are you looking for a family Christmas game?

Every year, at our house, Santa leaves the kids at least one game under the Christmas tree.  We love different board games and card games and it's been a great tradition to have.  On Thanksgiving weekend, we go to try out the Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown game and it's definitely an under-the-Christmas-tree recommendation.
