Inside Out Coming June 19th, 2015!

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie, Inside Out, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all - inside the mind. Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.

Easter Ideas With I See Me

Easter is right around the corner. And as Callan gets older, it is harder and harder to think of interesting things for his Easter Basket, besides candy! I See Me has some great products for Easter - or anytime of the year!
We got a place-mat for Callan, and some personalized stickers. He already saw the place-mat, but I hid the stickers for his Easter Basket! The place-mat is great, but he wanted to hang it on his wall as a picture, to make his room "Springy" he said! Hee hee. It works pretty well as a poster too!

Check out all the great ideas for Easter and every day at I See Me on Pinterest!

#PenguinsChillOut Family Movie Night With #PenguinsInsiders

 We love Family Movie Nights, as it gives us a time to chill out as a family and be together doing something fun. We had movie night over the weekend, and we watched the new movie Penguins Of Madagascar.
Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private join forces with undercover organization The North Wind to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine from destroying the world as we know it.
It was so much fun, and Callan had an over-the-top amazing time thanks to Twentieth Century Fox for providing us with some awesome goodies - an ice cream maker, ice cream bowls, and even some plushies from the movie that talked! Super cool!
