  • Fun Friday!

    October's theme is - DISNEY DAY!

    October 30 is the last Friday of the month, and this month is all things Disney!  You can also pick your favorite character from other things and dress up like them too.  Now, don't worry!  This isn't about costumes!  Its about being creative with what you own and finding a way to see DISNEY in it!  This is called "Disneybounding" by some people, and is one of my favorite things to do!

    For examples and more information on this month's Fun Friday, please click HERE
