While my boys (7&4) will get some candy in their Easter baskets, I definitely make it my mission each year to keep the candy and junk food in there down to a minimum.  And I definitely remember going on a hunt when they were smaller to find fun alternatives to candy to put into the Easter Eggs.  (I wasn't up for giving my toddler jelly beans … [Read more...]

Seeing as I'm a closet Just Dance and Dance Dance Revolution player, it's no surprise that I was totally excited for the release of Country Dance. Similar to Just Dance (but made by a different company), Country Dance has you moving and grooving along to some of your favorite country singers and songs.  Some of the artists on this game include: … [Read more...]
