Cute Movie

Have you seen Ratatouille yet? This really is a cute little movie about a rat called "little chef". My 20 month old daughter got this movie for Christmas and just loves if - she has watched it 4 times now and I'm afraid that I'm going to have to start hiding it because she gets it off the shelf and brings it to me wanting to watch it ALL THE TIME! If you haven't seen it yet - it's one that you can sit through with the kids b/c it's just so darn cute!

Zoobie Pets

Does your little one need a nap blanket for Mother's Day Out or Preschool? If so - or if you just want to have something cudly to take to Grandma's - check out Zoobie Pets. It's a stuffed animal, no it's a blanket, no it's a pillow - no it's all 3. They are sooooo cute! They are soft furry animals that unwrap into a cozy little blanket (almost like a sleeping bag) for your little one to snuggle up in.

Will You Be My Valentine?

In honor of tomorrow's special day...we have the following Valentine Cookie Pops recipe found on The Family Corner.

What you will need:
20 vanilla wafer cookies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 6-ounce bag white chocolate chips
1 6-ounce bag semi sweet chocolate chips
colored candy sprinkles, red & white
pink and red gummy or sour patch bears
Cake decorating writer gel in green, pink, red, black, and white
1 tube each of white, red, and pink cake decorator frosting with flower tip
red food coloring
ice cream or lollipop sticks
wax paper or paper plates

Instructions: Spread peanut butter onto the flat side of the cookies. Place an ice cream stick into the peanut butter on half the cookies. Top with another cookie so the stick is sandwiched between the two cookies. See below.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, one minute, then in 20 second increments, stirring until smooth. Before melting, seperate the white chips into two bowls. After melting, add a few drops of red food coloring to one of the bowls of white chips to make pink chocolate.
Dip cookie pops in the melted chips, covering completely. Roll pops in red and white sprinkles and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates. Place in refrigerator to chill.

Decorate as you wish with the remaining items! ENJOY!

Planning Your Next Summer Vacation?

Not sure what to do this year for the summertime family vacation? Check out this book, "500 Places To Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up", by Holly Hughes. It's a nifty little book that as the title states has 500 neat places that appeal to kidos and those young at heart. Each of the 500 entries (places) has age ratings, nearby kid-friendly and fun hotels, as well as service details about the place. The book is even equipped with two indexes to make planning your next trip a snap - a geographical index (could be useful if you're vising Great Aunt Louise in Montana but want to make the trip up there fun for the kids) as well as a specialty index (good for types of trip - like amusement park or camping or museum or beach or mountain). The book retails for $19.99 on --- but you can get it for $12.77 at Wal-mart.

Super Trendy Super Tuesday

As this election year is proving to be quite the race...why not show your support in 2008 with one of these SUPER cute T's for the tot in your life. Emily Allyn, a unique clothing line features ridiculously fun designs! Check out the newly created designs, 'Little Democrat' and 'Little Republican'.

The Emily Allyn clothing line seeks to play off the adorable and humorous names we give to our kids – Peanut, Monkey, Sweet Pea, Crabby Cakes, Silly Goose, and many more. Their site is fun and interactive - pick your shirt type (onesie, short sleve, long sleve, etc.) then select your design and size...super easy and super cool.

Check out their site and see for yourself - we've been told that the line is super soft and the ink used on the shirts won't crack like normal screenprinting sometimes does. YEA! for that!!

Lunch Shopping Spree

We've been tracking this site for awhile now and although we can't look into the future and see what you will see when you click on the link to their site...we think it's cool enough to dish about here.

So, what is it that we're talking's called Delight. It's a cool site that features a new item each day at noon for a great price. The catch is they only have a limited amount of this one particular item - so if you snooze - you lose.

They also have some neat stuff that they keep "in stock" all the time - so don't forget to check out those items as well....but what we really love is the daily deal at noon....very fun!
