1. You had quite a collection of Pogs and Slammers, but you didn’t play with your favorites.  Instead, you displayed them in a huge binder with plastic sleeves. 2. You had one of those phones from Clueless and freaked your friends out by changing the voice to the deepest it could go and asking them “What’s your favorite scary movie?” 3. You absolutely positively had to have those cute cargo pants from the dELiA’s and Alloy catalogs that came in the mail. 4. You had a subscription to Disney Adventures...

To say that I am a huge Disney buff is an understatement.  I often call my two daughters “princesses” and I buy them all the Disney princess toys and clothes they ask for (and don’t ask for), because 1.) they are great kids, 2.)

Mardi Gras Fireworks Show Group Activity: The colors of Mardi Gras are purple (for justice), green (for faith), and gold (for power).  For younger children, have them give examples of things that are those colors.  (Ex. “A frog is green.”)  For older children, have them give examples of things that represent the color meanings. (Ex. “A king has power.) Now give each child a purple, green, or yellow scarf and have them pretend they...
