Donkey X DVD Review
Based on the 400 year old Spansih classic tale " Don Quijote de la Mancha," DonkeyX, releasing in July 2012, follows Rucio, the most adventurous, brave and mischievous Doneky of Castile, as he tells the true story of the legendary Don Quijote. Rucio Jumps at the opportunity to join Don Quixote on his quest to battle The Half Moon Knight and overcome the dangerous obstacles that lurk them on the way.
This new animation takes on Don Quixote. If you have not seen Don Quixote then make sure you watch that first or you will be lost in this story. Donkey X is rated G and runs about 90 minutes. I think kids a bit older will enjoy the film more. My 4 year still did enjoy it but I know she had no idea what was going on within the plot. She lost interest a few times and started playing but then a few minutes later it caught her attention again.
There is some adult humor that for the most part was clean. It was also neat to see some Christian aspects within the movie such as praying. :)
There is some minor language issues and I wish the girls would cover up their chests a bit more... this is an animation so why so much cleavage. (Sorry just had to say that)
This DVD can be purchased at Redbox, Target, Walmart, and Amazon.com

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
