Spend Family Time Making A Wind Wheel! #HadaPirata #Ad

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Disney Studios.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.     Spending time with my sons is on the top of my list of priorities.  As a Working Mom, I spend a lot of time away from them due to my career and I like to take advantage of every opportunity to bond with them or to engage in educational activities with them.  We do a lot of fun things when we are together and making arts and crafts is just one of them.     This evening, we are watching Disney’s Pirate Fairy on Blue-ray™ and Digital and watching a familia of hadas or family of fairies working together to bring their loved one, Zarina, back home after she has made the wrong decision and gotten mixed up in some bad company.  Like we say in Spanish, "Dime con quien tú andas y te digo quien eres."*  They encounter some pirates and use some pixie dust on their adventures which ultimately help to bring the fairies together again.     We are so … [Read more...]

Despicable Me 2 DVD Prize Pack #Giveaway! #DespicableMeDos #DM2DVD #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  I received a DVD of the film to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.     My boys and I love to go to the movies together when my husband is working on Saturdays.  One of our all-time favorite animated films was Despicable Me and we really enjoyed going to see it together at our favorite movie theater.  That is why we were thrilled when we found out that Despicable Me 2 was coming to the big screen!     We made plans to go see it over and over but it seems that life had another plan and we kept having to postpone our movie date.  Since we never got to see it in the movies, we were very excited to have the opportunity to watch it together on DVD.  We knew that, if it was anything like the first movie, we would love the characters and all of their funny antics.     Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the … [Read more...]

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked DVD Review and Giveaway

        Recently, my sons and I had the opportunity to review the film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked on DVD.  We have always loved to watch the Chipmunks and Chipettes as they cause mischief and get into all types of adventures together.  Their escapades usually cause us to laugh quite a bit and we enjoy getting an excuse to spend time together as a family.     The Chipmunks have the opportunity to join their caretaker, David Sevelle and the Chipettes on a cruise aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship.  Since they are kids, they immediately go about turning the ship into their own personal play area.  Although Dave tries to maintain some order, he is not able to confine the Chipmunks to their room so they quickly find themselves in a jam.     Their vacation quickly turns into a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave, and the Carnival Cruise Pelican Mascot find themselves overboard.  Ironically, the mascot ended up being their old manager Ian Hawke who is not at all happy at … [Read more...]
