Disney's "Inside Out" Movie #Review! #InsideOut

Could you imagine going inside your son or daughter's head to see what they are thinking and feeling? Wouldn't it be neat to see what their personalities and memories are made of! INSIDE OUT takes audiences into the mind of 12-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias). Her world is controlled by five emotions: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Fear (Bill Hader). However, when Riley’s carefree life begins to crumble after her family moves to a new city, her emotional enforcers are put to the test trying to keep her in happy and balanced. If you normally cry at the movies, make sure to bring a small packet of tissues!

I really loved seeing inside of the Mom's and Dad's heads! It was so funny! A majority of the audience was busting up laughing. Make sure to stick around for the ending credits. You can leave after the cats! That's all I'm gonna say about that!

Also, check out a small short from the Animated Short that plays before Inside Out! It's called Lava, and it's super cute!

"Summer of Creativity" Initiative To Help Inspire Youths To Change The World!

-- Grants to be Awarded to Youth-Led Community Service Projects Across the U.S.--

Disney | ABC Television Group is mobilizing its division-wide resources to champion the potential of young, socially conscious individuals and their creative approach to strengthening their communities and changing the world. Through its newly launched "Summer of Creativity" initiative, Disney | ABC Television Group will commit programming content and public service announcements highlighting how creativity and action can inspire a better future. Disney | ABC Television Group will also fund over 100 Youth Service America grants to support individual youth-led projects that help make communities greener, safer, smarter, healthier or cleaner

Winners will receive $500 "Summer of Creativity" grants. More information, including the grant application with an August 10, 2015 deadline, is available at

During the week of July 13, several non-profit organizations that take creative approaches to building stronger communities will be showcased on ABC programs including "Good Morning America."

Disney | ABC Television Group's David Ambroz, Executive Director, Corporate Citizenship and Social Responsibility, said, "Across Disney, our concern for kids and families extends beyond their entertainment to the communities in which they live. Through our group's powerful reach and impact, we can inspire and support individuals to create change in their lives and the world around them."

A special one-hour broadcast, hosted by superstar Selena Gomez, originating from Free the Children's "We Day" 2015 event in Chicago, will spotlight young change makers that embody the "Summer of Creativity." The special will be presented Friday, August 21 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

To invite applicants for the Youth Service America grants, Disney | ABC Television Group will showcase the "Summer of Creativity" initiative in its programming content and via public service announcements across its cable, broadcast and online platforms, including ABC Primetime, ABC News, ABC Family, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Radio Disney and related WATCH apps. ABC's eight owned television stations and participating ABC affiliates will award Youth Service America grants to non-profit organizations that offer creativity-based programs.

Back To The Jurassic DVD #Review! #SummerMovies #Dinosaurs #Jurassic #80sSummer

Rated PG
Starring: Melanie Griffith, Pamela Adlon, Jane Lynch, Rob Schneider, Stephen Baldwin, William Baldwin

Ernie, his little sister Julia, and his best friend Max accidentally start up a time machine while playing in Max’s inventor father’s workshop and find themselves transported back in time 65 million years, where they are adopted by doting dinosaur mom Tyra (Melanie Griffith) and a rambunctious dinosaur “brother” named Dodger (Rob Schneider). The three kids explore the excitement of the prehistoric world while, back in the present, Max’s dad and Ernie and Julia’s overprotective mom (Jane Lynch) plot their rescue. If they ever wish to make it back home, they must steer clear of their evil dinosaur rivals (William and Stephen Baldwin) and rely on the help of their “mother” and Dodger—after all, family isn’t always just the one you’re born into!

My Review:
My children and I really love this movie! I wasn't sure about it at first, but once it got going, it was really awesome! It also has a hidden message in the movie that children should always listen to their parents because we really do know what we are talking about! My children and I have watched this movie a few times since we received it. If your looking for a new movie to introduce Dinosaurs to your children, this is it! I guarantee there's something in this animated movie for children and adults alike. I don't think that the tweens or teens would be bored by it at all either.

This summer seems to be Summer of the Dinosaurs! So check out every new Dinosaur children's book and Dinosaur movie you can get your hands on! You won't be disappointed with Back to the Jurassic!

I See Me Book #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) CLOSED #iseemebooks #contests

I have reviewed a few children's books from I See Me. They are mine and my children's favorite books because they have my children's names inside of them! The stories are personalized to be about my children!

When you share a personalized children's book with your child, you are sharing quality time. It really makes a child feel special when they read a story that's about them!

We had a chance to review a NEW children's board book from I See Me called "It's My NIGHT NIGHT Time." It's a super cute book all about your child being the star of their own NIGHT NIGHT show! It's talks about putting on their PJ's, brushing their teeth, using the potty, snuggling up with her blankie (you can personalize this to say Lovey, or the name of their favorite stuffed animal) and the story ends with saying Night Night (your child's name). My almost three year old daughter loves this book. She wants to read it every night before going to bed and a few times most everyday.

The pages are really durable for her little hands. She can turn the pages without having to worry about ripping or tearing the pages by mistake. Board books from I See Me are perfect for infants, toddlers, and young children who are learning how to take care of books properly.

Hailey loves that her personalized book says her same on the front and inside of it several times! She doesn't have to share her book with anyone else either!

I See Me currently offers Free Shipping on all orders over $75.00 or more! You can also purchase personalized Story Books, personalized Growth Charts, personalized Coloring Books, personalized Coloring and Activity Books, personalized Stickers, personalized Placemats, personalized Lunch Boxes (which are currently on sale for $19.99!), personalized Puzzles and Gift Sets.

June is National Rose Month. The Rose Fairy has fluttered in with a special offer for you! Save $5 on I See Me's award-winning "My Very Own Fairy Tale" book with code ROSE at checkout. Hurry! Expires 7/1/15.
