Our First Trip to American Girl

Successful Day
 Over the weekend I took my daughter to our first trip to the American Girl store.  They have quite a few events listed on their website. You should definitely check them out if you haven't already.

My daughter got her first AG dolls and WellieWisher for Christmas & birthday.  The store is an hour away from us so may of the afternoon and evening events are hard to get to due to the ugly traffic we would hit. 

We had so much fun.  It was a great time for the two of us.  Everything was so cute and so hard to decide on what to get.



My daughter & Kaya
After going around to the different activities they had set out, we went upstairs to have lunch.  I did not realize that we probably should have made a reservation since this was our first time there but they were able to accommodate us nevertheless.  The lunch was absolutely delicious!  I love how they have little high chairs for the dolls to join us.  So awesome!  My daughter was so happy to be sharing her lunch with her doll Kaya. 

It was definitely a great day and lots of wonderful memories for my baby girl, that's what it's all about right, making memories.  She was so excited about her day that she actually fell asleep in the car on the way back home.  The last time that ever happened was when she was a baby.  This kid never naps.  She's already putting her Christmas / birthday list together and can you guess what she's asking for, haha! 

All night she kept saying that it was the best day ever and thanked me a bazillion times for taking her there.  Thank you @americangirl for a great event!  We will be back soon.

Are your kids a fan of American Girl?  What's their favorite doll?

Hello? Helloooo? Is anyone still out there? It's been quite some time since I've been away. It was never my plan to be gone this long and I've certainly missed you all.

Life certainly has a way of throwing you some major curve balls. I've certainly missed you all and I have actually written many posts - in my head. I've attempted to return a few times but the journey I've been on the last few years has been long, challenging and difficult at times to say the least.

During the last few years I've gone through a difficult divorce - more on that later, adjusting to being a single mom to my amazing daughter, working full time now, busy with one of my special needs dogs whom I lost in March - I'm still devastated and miss him so much and pretty much picking up the pieces of a shattered marriage.

There's this crappy roller coaster ride you just really can't get off of when you're divorced and dealing with an extremely difficult narcissistic ex husband but truth be told my favorite words these days are EX HUSBAND.  I've really missed blogging and plan on getting back to it more and lay out what's been happening the last few years.

Talk Soon,

Reenie

A Great Family Movie - Norm Of The North - January 15, 2016

Inside Out: Blu-Ray DVD Release and Giveaway

Do you sometimes wonder about your emotions and how you react a certain way?  Well now you can put a face to those emotions of yours - Joy, Anger, Sadness. These emotions can wreak havoc during life-changing moments.  

Disney released a Digital HD version of Inside Out on October 13th but if you still haven't seen this movie then the Blu-Ray DVD is scheduled to be released Nov. 3rd - just a few short days away.

This is a really great movie for both kids and adults. I'm sure we can all relate to Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley's emotions -- led by Joy (Amy Poehler) -- try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley's mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.

This movie will have you going through all of your emotions and have you laughing as well. We really enjoyed watching this movie and laughed a lot!

My daughter was glued to my tablet watching the movie and she also had a great time coloring the activity sheets, putting her puzzle together and it just so happened that we also got a poster recently when we bought some books at school.  The activity sheets and puzzle provide endless entertainment.  


 

If you haven't seen all the awesome activity and coloring sheets I posted last week along with some great recipes, you can check out the post here

Disney's Aladdin Diamond Edition Has Arrived

It's finally here! Aladdin - Diamond Edition.  You remember those days pretending you had a magic carpet of your own to fly around in and your very own special Genie. Now you can relive the magic and this time perhaps it will be an even magical adventure with your little ones. 

Disney’s beloved masterpiece will make your heart race and your spirit soar. Experience the laughter, adventure and Academy Award®-winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score) for the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD. And now Aladdin shines even brighter with never-before-seen tributes to the enchanting talent of Robin Williams, the “Genius behind the Genie

To get your little ones ready for a magic carpet ride, they can print out these wonderful activity sheets here and we all know It's never fun to travel on an empty stomach so here is a wonderful Chicken Kabob & Humus recipe.  This is a great recipe that you can make with your little ones but if your child is anything like mine - picky to the extreme, she didn't even want to help at all.  Please let me know how your recipe turned out. 

Instead of helping me with my recipe my daughter was gathering her crayons to color her activity sheets and putting together her puzzle. She would come home everyday from school and do her puzzle.  I love how this movie feeds the imagination.  She will create her own magic carpet and has her own "Abu" side kick and pretends to fly around rescuing stray dogs.
