I jumped at the chance to receive the latest trends for my children delivered directly to my home. Every month an entire "Look" will be selected for Mya and Parker from head-to-toe and the styles will match their personalities as determined by the Style Quiz I took to get started.
 
 
This month was all about saying Hello to Spring! The looks for Spring include new styles inspired by bright flowers and blue skies. Mya is in love with her very first delivery! She received TULLE LOVE which includes this beautiful silver dotted tulle dress with black leggings.
 
 
 

 No outfit would be complete without the perfect shoes and these Pink Leopard Sneakers just scream MYA!!! She adores animal prints and anything sparkly!

Charged Up Fun with Power Rangers Dino Charge Products!

Power Rangers Dino Charge is in full swing and no great series would be complete without awesome merchandise to get the kids all fired up for show time! The final new episode of the series is getting ready to air on Saturday, April 4th and we are definitely charged up and ready to go Dino.

 
You can find all of the above Power Rangers Dino Charge merchandise and so much more at local retailers like Target, Walmart and Toys R Us! I don't know which items my kids are more excited about. The toys, the apparel or the toothbrushes? My youngest ranger immediately jumped into his Dino Charge t-shirt and pulled out all of the fun underwear. It looks like the Deluxe Megazord is his favorite!
 
 
The Dino Charge Megazord can morph between 3 Dino Zords to form the massive Megazord that brings ultimate strength to any battle. You can collect and combine with any of the other Zord Builder items to create unique and powerful Megazord combinations. Jackson used his new Dino Zord with Charger to create his own Megazord and Parker gave him the "thumbs up"!


Mya was most excited to see the Pink Dino Zord and she quickly claimed it "the most powerful Dino of all times!!!". Then the real battle began!


Be sure to catch all of the dino-fueled action on Saturday, April 4th! The final NEW episode will be airing on Nickelodeon at 12pm (ET/PT).

Go Go Power Rangers!!!

Fandango Family: HOME in Theaters this Friday!


The much anticipated DreamWorks film, HOME, is headed to theaters this Friday, March 27th and I've got a couple fun ideas to help get your little ones ready for an out-of-this-world adventure!

Home is about an overly confident alien race called Boov, taking over Earth in search of a new place to call Home. As Earth's inhabitants are being relocated, a young, resourceful girl named Tip, escapes capture and finds herself with an accidental accomplice...Oh! These 2 fugitives stumble upon the adventure of a lifetime in this hilariously funny and warm family film.

My kids love a good donut and it was super easy making these HOME themed donuts and surprising them after school! I picked up 3 jelly filled donuts from my local donut shop and covered them in orange frosting. All that was missing was the swirl and with a little black cake gel we were good to go. They were so excited to see the donuts, but the real fun happened when we cut the donuts in half and purple jelly appeared...nailed it!




OH-nuts:

Jelly Filled Donuts
Orange Frosting (add 3 drops of yellow food coloring and 3 drops of red food coloring to white frosting)
Black Cake Gel

The kids had to have something fun to drink with their OH-nuts so I whipped up a batch of BOOV Brew and they literally jumped out of their seats!




BOOV Brew:

Grape Juice
Orange Slices

I think our little HOME celebration was a huge success and now my kids are more excited than ever to see HOME in theaters this Friday!

Be sure to visit Fandango.com for more fun recipes inspired by DreamWorks HOME like these Oh-So-Awesome Cookies:
