Holiday Gift Guide: The Amazing Zhus, a great gift idea! #TheAmazingZhus

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Cepia LLC and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 
The world of magic is one of intrigue and secrecy. Magicians closely guard all their “tricks” and won't divulge them for any reason. That is why magic is so intriguing and fascinating, the ability to get lost in the world of magic is easy and often fun and though provoking. You want to figure out how the trick is done but that other part of you wants to be kept in the dark to keep the magic real.

It is fall and that means the leaves are changing, the weather is getting colder and we are in full blown cold season. Cold season, for us that means we are all going to get sick very soon… My daughter seems to bring home all of the latest colds that she catches from her schoolmates… This the cold season, so we know a cold will be coming, but what can we do? Make my daughter stay home for the season, to insure that she does not bring home a cold? No, that will not work…. The only option we have is to make sure she takes her vitamins and continually washes her hands, and hope for the best.

A sneak peak of the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new short FEAST! #Feast #BigHero6

Here is a  special look at Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new short FEAST is now available. FEAST will open in theaters in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios' new action-packed, big-screen adventure BIG HERO 6 on November 7th.  One of the best parts of a movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios' is the short film that is before nearly each movie. They are mini classics! I am a huge fan of the Toy Story shorts, and the most recent short, the Oscar winning Paperman was heartwarming, and my very favorite. Disney has done it again, and in the beginning of Big Hero 6, there will be another great short, that you are sure to love be sure to check out the clip of the new short Feast below…

“Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share. 

Director Patrick Osborne, who joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2008 as an animator on “Bolt,” took part in the Studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists. Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for the upcoming feature “Big Hero 6.”  

But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director.  Producer Kristina Reed produced 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman.”

Be sure to check out BIG HERO 6 in theaters on November 7th.

Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved a new game the whole family will love!

I live in a house of gamers, my husband goes back to the days of Intellivision so when he says he's old school he's old school. Now my daughter is being raised by a gamer and well she became one as well, she's been playing video games since she was three and like her father is an avid gamer. The day my husband got his Xbox One he let my daughter have his Xbox 360 and that made her one happy little girl! She loves all types of games and doesn't have a favorite genre so when I showed her Fantasia Music Evolved she immediately got excited. It combines Disney music with video games and those are two of her favorite things!

Superior Swedish Clogs has the largest inventory of Troentorp clogs in the United States. What makes Troentorp clogs the best you’ll find anywhere? It starts with their construction.

Today, Troentorp-Bastad men’s and women’s clogs are worn the world over by medical professionals, chefs, teachers, and anyone who prefers the ease and comfort that comes with their stylish good looks.
