Cookie Decorating

Sugar Cookies Decorating Time!

My daughter loves decorating sugar cookies. It is a fun activity to do with your little ones. You can make your own cookie dough or you can get a cookie mix. To see the one I use from Betty Crocker click here.

After getting your cookie mix, the next thing you need is your decorating materials. We love pink and white cookie icing and sprinkles. For these, I like Wilton cooking icing (click here) and their sprinkles (click here).

Noon Year’s Eve for the Kids at Miami Children’s Museum

New Year’s Eve is almost here and I am starting to feel a little bit guilty that I will not be spending the night with my kids (I know they will be tucked in bed by 9pm anyways but still can’t help it).  I was trying to find something fun to do with them so that we could share some special time together before the New Year’s Eve Party.  Thankfully, we’ve got the Miami Children’s Museum launching a Noon Year’s Eve Party.  We’ll then get to ring in the New Year a couple of hours earlier with a fun balloon drop, which I know my kids will love!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays from the place Where Dreams Come True… Disney World!!!

So as a lucky Floridian I’ve got Disney World just 3 hours away.  Add to that an Annual Pass and two kids younger than 3 years old, and you’ve got a year full of fun with your little ones.

I love Magic Kingdom, but for my 2 1/2 year old boy Hollywood Studios was a hit.  They have the Disney Junior Live on Stage show that is a must if your little one watches Disney Junior, as they have their favorite characters live on stage! Even my 6 months old baby girl loved it, as she could enjoy the colors and the bubbles falling from the sky.  Another show that my toddler enjoyed was the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show.  They just added Lightning McQueen and Mater to the show, so my boy was thrilled.

For a decent place to eat I would recommend The Hollywood Brown Derby.  I personally enjoyed their Pan-seared Black Grouper.

Finally, if you are planning to go to Magic Kingdom I have two tips to share:

1 ) If you have a big stroller than you do not wish to fold, then walk from the parking lot directly to the Ferry.  It’s faster and you don’t need to worry about folding and unfolding your stroller.

2) Take advantage of the Baby Care Center! They have changing tables, feeding chairs, nursing room, and restrooms (which are always clean AND empty :)).
