New From Disney: Frozen Fever!

Disney Cinderella Movie

So some big news just came out about Disney’s Cinderella movie which will be in theaters March 13, 2015.

Want to know what it is?

I’ll give you a hint.

It has to do with a few familiar people named Elsa, Olaf, Ana and Kristoff.

YES!  FROZEN!

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ all-new short “Frozen Fever,” which welcomes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back to the big screen, will open in theaters on March 13, 2015, in front of Disney’s “Cinderella,” a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.

Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and produced by Peter Del Vecho and Aimee Scribner, with an all-new original song by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, “Frozen Fever” marks the first project reuniting the Oscar®-winning original team from Disney’s “Frozen.”

In “Frozen Fever,” it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.

Seriously.  And you didn’t think it could get any better.

I got a few emails telling me you all loved the Minecraft bedroom ideas and as requested, here is a fun Lego Batman room!  I’m in love with the fun colors of this room, but my favorite piece has to be that Lego rug!  Finally a Lego you can step on and not want to cry! :)

It all started with the bedding.  This set includes a douvet cover and pillowcase and has all of your son’s favorite Lego Batman characters on it!  This set will fit a twin size bed.

This is my favorite part of the room!  This rug is made to look like a sea of Legos.  How much fun is that?  I think it’s really an awesome statement piece.

Every room needs a floating shelf!  Use it to organize or use it to display some of our favorite Lego Batman decorations below!

Posters are a great way to decorate inexpensively.  You can glam them up a little with an inexpensive frame.

Paging Batman!  This light is a fun accessory to add to a dresser, side table or shelf!

Although both of these are clocks I think that have one on a night stand and one up on a display shelf would be awesome!  Just don’t set both alarms! :)

Another easy and inexpensive decorating idea is to use books!  The covers of books are so visual and would help to compliment any decor!  Plus, they are multi-purpose.  Part for looks and part for enjoying!

Disney’s Frozen Inspired Melted Snowman Ornament

Some People Are Worth Melting For Frozen Inspired Snowman Ornament and Printable Tag

 

Last year the movie Frozen came out and it’s been going crazy ever since.  I’m not sure if it was the characters, the sisterly love, the girl power message, or all of the awesome songs.  It was probably a mixture of all them.  Normally movies fade and new ones come out, but it seems like Frozen is one that will stick around forever!

Sydney is just getting to that age where she wants to get her friends gifts and take them to school.  Seriously, what is better than a DIY gift?!  We needed something cute, girly and budget friendly.    Frozen isn’t just for the little kids!  The girls in middle school are totally obsessed too!

We were totally inspired by Olaf.  He’s one of the sweetest characters in all of the history of Disney.  Seriously, who can resist an adorable snowman?  So we decided to make the cutest Frozen Inspired Snowman Ornaments Ever.  Because some people are worth melting for.

Totally.

  • Glass ornaments
  • Sea Salt (I used coarse sea salt)
  • Orange cardstock

This is a free printable to be used for personal creations only.  This is not intended to be sold.

The process for making these is pretty simple.  I used the card stock to create a funnel.  Then pour in some white glitter, a little blue and some sea salt until you get your desired amount.  Then you will want to drop in two beads for the eyes.

For the nose, you cut a triangle from your orange card stock and fold it to create a cone shape.  Just a little piece of tape will hold it.  Then drop it in!

Tip: I used a kabob stick to help move the eyes and nose where I wanted them!  

Next, it’s time to create a bow.  I used ribbon and this wonderful glitter tulle.  I really wanted the bow to give it a Frozen effect.  Use your Baker’s Twine to attach the bow in front of the top of lid of the ornament.  Also, don’t forget a string for hanging!

If you want you can punch a whole in the printable card and string it through.  I chose to use these adorable mini clothespins that were the perfect shade of glittery blue to hold the card to the ribbon.  (I found mine on clearance at Hobby Lobby!)

Then attach the lid back on the ornament.  Ta-da!  You are done!

7 Christmas Cookies We Love #MomsCheckIn

7 Christmas Cookies We Love

Christmas is a time for a lot of great things.  It’s the time of giving.  It’s the time of family.  It’s a time of remembering what is truly important.

In our house it’s a time for all of those things and for celebrating our faith, friends and family!

One way we do that is with baking.  We love cooking up treats to give to neighbors, for surprising the kiddos after they get home from school and for Cookie Exchange parties to hang out with our friends.   Here are 7 of our favorite Christmas Cookies that we love.  What is your favorite kind of cookie?

LindsayHeadShot3Border-300x300

We love Christmas cookies! It’s definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions. My Mom always baked with me when I was a kid and I do the same with my kids. Our favorites are Chocolate Crinkles, Peanut Butter Kisses, and Sugar Cookie Cut-outs. But I love to try new ones every year too. The Red Velvet Cookie Cupcakes are so easy and festive, and the Nutella Stuffed Cookies are honestly the best things in the entire WORLD!!

I love to bake, especially during the holiday season! My little helper, Sam joins me in the kitchen — just like I used to join my grandmother. He loves to help measure and mix… but of course his favorite part is tasting! We have a few classics we create each year that are family favorites, but we also loves to experiment with new recipes. It’s definitely one of my favorite ways to create memories together.

My favorite Christmas cookies are the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey Kisses on top! Doesn’t get much better than that in my book. My husband and kiddo though, love these Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies. My all time personal favorite Christmas treat though (besides cookies), are these yummy-licious Peanut Butter Balls. They are absolutely heaven on earth! They’re also Eli’s favorite. We can polish off a batch of those in no time.

Christmas Lights To Music

One of our favorite things to do each year is to go look at the Christmas lights.  We love to look at the displays at businesses and homes.  Some of the Christmas light displays get reactions like “ohhhh, it’s so pretty!” and others get reactions of “WOAH!  Did you see that?!”  One of Joshua’s favorite displays to see are the Christmas Lights To Music.

Check out these awesome videos of Christmas Lights to Music!

Love Frozen?  These lights are set to Frozen’s Let It Go!  (Cue the awesomeness!)

Amazing right?

Can you imagine how much time and effort goes into planning this?  They must start MONTHS ahead of time!

Wow.  Just WOW!

Have you ever seen any Christmas lights to music where you live?

Easy Teacher Christmas Gift Idea

Easy Christmas Gift For Teachers - Includes a free printable card to attach to a candle or candle warmer!

 

If you have followed the blog for some time now, then you know that I’m kind of the Queen of Cheese when it comes to corny tags for gifts.  Christmas is no exception.  And no one is safe, even teachers from the cheesiness that can happen.

I know many of you liked our teacher appreciation gifts and while many of those tags can easily be used for Christmas gifts (or even end of the year gifts), I decided to create a special tag for one of our most popular teacher gift ideas.

Easy Christmas Gift For Teachers - Includes a free printable card to attach to a candle or candle warmer!

When I used to work in a school, one of the gifts that I got one year was a candle warmer and some wonderful scents.  I really loved it, because it was safe to have in my classroom and it made it smell so wonderful!  Ever since, they are my go to gifts for teachers!

Teacher Christmas Gift Printable

Simply save our gift tags and print on cardstock.  You can also save them on a flash-drive and send them to your local copy shop to have them printed.  (I printed mine as 5×7’s.)   Then, a simple hole punch and ribbon and your gift is complete!

It really can’t get easier than this!  Every year, the teachers really seem to love this gift!

Easy Christmas Gift For Teachers - Includes a free printable card to attach to a candle or candle warmer!
