Google Play has lots of choices for toddler applications for your android phone or tablet. I’m always looking for new games for my girls, Katie and Sophia, to play. There are so many games that will help your toddler learn or just have fun. I’d say most of my applications on my phone are for my girls.

Whenever my girls play a game on my phone, I first open a parental control application I downloaded from Google Play. You can find more about the application here.

I cook chicken with two sides every week. To make things different, I like to switch up the flavor. I love cooking lemon chicken as well as orange chicken.

Orange chicken is a healthy option for a meal. The citrus from the orange gives the chicken a sweet flavor and leaves it nice and moist.

Here is my recipe for orange chicken.

Francesca’s recently opened up in the mall in the city that I live in. I haven’t been able to buy anything there yet, but I have looked around. By looking around, I mean more of a quick look/glance, because my husband and I were in the mall with our two girls. I bet you know how hard it can be to shop with kids.

Of what I did see, I really like Francesca’s bags and jewelry. My 2.5 year old daughter, Katie, thought the jewelry was really pretty. There was lots of color in their bags and jewelry, which is perfect for Spring.

Can you guess what Katie’s favorite movie is? Well, it used to be Ice Age. That all changed when she got the movie Rio for Christmas. Katie absolutely loves it. Whenever we ask her what she wants to watch, she says, ‘Rio.’ There are times we try to change Katie’s mind to watch something else. She’s usually fine with that. The next time Katie asks again, we usually let her watch Rio.

Sophia loves the movie Rio too. Maybe not as much as Katie does, but she is only 1 years old. Sophia loves to watch the birds sing and dance. She’ll even point at the screen and talk about it. You’ll have to check out this short video of Katie and Sophia watching Rio. They are both talking about the movie, but Sophia’s reaction is so cute and funny.
