Disney Side

I received free products in order to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

In the middle of a gloomy winter day and just before the Super Bug hit, we had a fun Disney-themed party with friends.  We received a celebration kit from Disney that included party decorations, rainbow cake decorating supplies, HP CMYK (Create Memories You Keep) photo paper packs, and more.  We just supplied the kids.  And there were a lot of kids.  

My kids helped bake a delicious (and super easy) tie dye cake with rainbow sprinkles.  We played Disney-themed Bingo and word searches.

We created fun goody bags to share with friends.  Everything was Disney-themed. Even my big boys love a good party.   From Cars to Frozen, Disney movies are a huge hit with all ages in our house.

 If you have read my blog for a long time, you'll know that we took a very special trip to Disney World in 2009, just before Jason's deployment.  We made a lot of magical memories there.  Someday we'll make it back so the littlest girls can get in touch with their Disney Side.  We've definitely caught the Disney bug again and we're only a few hours from Orlando...

I received a celebration kit from Disney Parks and MomSelect.  No further compensation was provided.

ezpz Happy Mat

We recently discovered the ezpz Happy Mat and had to share a review.  I only wish that this had existed back when my twins were little.

The Happy Mat is a 100% silicone, BPA-free, phthalate-free mat with built-in compartments for finicky toddlers who like to keep food separated.  The back of the mat is smooth silicone and when you place it on a flat surface, it doesn't slide.  It makes for a meal with less mess!  As an added bonus, the Happy Mat is safe to toss is in the dishwasher.

I was lucky enough to get in on the ezpz Kickstarter campaign so we received our first Happy Mat just before Christmas.  I already had to get a second one and stopped myself from buying a dozen so all of the kids could use them.  Hey, these aren't just for toddlers.

*The Amazon sale has ended, but you can still find the Happy Mat with free Prime shipping.
