Gifting yourself this holiday season

The final countdown to Christmas is upon us- can you believe it? Everyone knows how hard moms work this time of year to make the holidays extra special for everyone. There's just so much to do besides just shopping for Christmas presents. You also have to think about food, guests, cleaning the house for said guests, and so much more. Plus, the kids are home from school for their holiday break while mom is rushing around the house trying to get everything done on time. It's madness, I tell you! 

In the midst of all that madness, I still want to look good, which is why it's important to stop and take a break for myself every once in a while. When I get really stressed out I usually retreat to the tub. A nice, long soak in my jetted tub is usually the perfect little escape and I always feel better afterward. This time of year though, I like to make it extra special and reward myself a little for taking care of everyone else during the holidays. Sometimes a really long, luxurious bath is in order with some of my favorite P&G beauty products from Costco and a yummy DIY sugar scrub to help me get super soft, silky legs. I don't want to feel any stubble when I slip on my favorite dress this Christmas! It's time to give those legs some pampering.


DIY Coffee + Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Ingredients:
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Melt the coconut oil in the microwave, carefully. You don't want the oil to get hot to where it's going to melt the sugar- just get it warm enough to liquefy. Add the sugar, coffee, and vanilla and mix until combined. Put sugar scrub in a glass jar for storing and enjoy! (also makes a great gift!)


Now, here's how to pamper and treat yourself with a nice bath and silky smooth legs, even the middle of winter, using the sugar scrub, and a few of favorites to shave with: Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash and the Venus Swirl razor (both available at Costco!) 

First, fill the tub. I like to get the water as hot as possible so that I can soak as long as possible without the water getting too cold. Bubble bath or bath oil is up to you- I prefer to skip it because I want to turn on the jets. Make sure all of your bathing essentials are close by- towels, shampoo & conditioner if you're washing your hair, the Olay body wash, a poof or loofah, the sugar scrub, and Venus Swirl razor. 


Create some ambiance. This part is totally optional- sometimes there just isn't time for that or I'm just not in the mood. But if you're feeling like it, light some candles, and put on some relaxing music (or your latest Netflix favorite, if you're like me). If you're a mom, lock the door and consider posting a sign outside that says "go away." 

Soak! Get in and relax for at least 10 or 15 minutes. Then wash up with some Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash. Normally, body wash dries my skin out in the winter, but this one is rich and made with shea butter, so it actually puts moisture back into my skin. 

Scrub. Use a spoonful of the sugar scrub to scrub your legs really well using circular motions, starting at the ankles and working your way up to your thighs. This is essential to a good shave, especially if you've been skipping the razor lately.

Rinse, then shave. Rinse the sugar scrub off, leaving behind some of the coconut oil. This is perfect for shaving with, combined with the water-active MoistureGlide serum on the Venus Swirl razor. This 5 blade razor contours perfectly to areas like the ankle and knees for a flawless shave. The 8 cartridge pack from Costco is a great deal too!


When you're ready to get out, pat your legs off with a clean towel and rub in any remaining coconut oil. Sometimes I don't even have to apply lotion afterwards because my legs are still so soft from the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash and coconut oil. Those two together, with the help of the Venus Swirl razor, will give you smoother legs than you thought possible in the middle of winter. 

I found the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash (available in warehouse) and the Venus Swirl at my local Costco. I love buying my favorite tried and true  P&G health and beauty products at Costco- it saves me so much time and money buying them in bulk. I love always having an extra in the cupboard so I don't have to go without. Plus, when I have extra guests around for the holidays, I know I'll never run out and I've got extras in case anyone needs to borrow something. I love being a prepared host!

5 tips for a happy baby

Friday, December 18, 2015


The parents have spoken and Gerber® listened! That's right- a pretty significant amount of parents have let Gerber® know that they want their formula to be made without the use of genetically engineered ingredients. To go along with the release of the new Non-GMO Gerber® Good Start® Infant Formula line, I've teamed up with Gerber® to share my tips for a happy baby.


Create a routine. I know this one is pretty basic and is easier said than done, but when you can get your baby on a routine you're almost guaranteed a little more sanity and a happier baby. Newborns are a little tricky to "train," but try to start a loose routine as early as possible and it will pay off later. For us, at almost 17 months old, it's wake up, diaper change, morning snuggles, breakfast, Sesame Street and playtime, then lunch, followed by another diaper change before naptime. Afternoons can be a little tricky with the older kids coming home from school and the house being thrown into chaos, but sticking to a pretty rigid morning routine ensures Harper always takes a good nap and I get a little time to myself too. Our dinner and bedtime routine helps wind her down and prepare her to go to sleep on her own at the same time every night, with absolutely no resistance. She actually loves bedtime now!

Read to your baby. Even when your baby is, well, a baby, reading to them is important for their little brains. Plus, it will get them interested in books for when they are older and are required to read for school. By the time Harper was a year old she was bringing us her favorite books when she knew it was close to her bedtime (see- routine helps a lot!) Now her books keep her entertained all on her own and she will happily sit on the floor with a stack of them and flip through the pages, stopping to kiss the animals or characters. It's the cutest thing! She loves when her big brother and sister read to her too.


Wear your baby. This is one I wish I would have mastered way before baby number three came along because it's been such a lifesaver this time around, as well as a huge source of comfort for Harper. I put her in the baby carrier at the grocery store, at Target, at church, at the kids' sports meets and activities, and around the house when she wants to be close but I need to be hands-free. I can't tell you how cozy and happy she is when she's in her carrier! Everyone at the store always comments on what a great little shopping buddy I have while she's hanging out comfortably on my chest, and people at church have asked me if my baby ever cries (which I assured them she does- she's just really happy when she's being worn by mama. She used to nap in it while I ran errands and I could always get her to snooze in it when she was super fussy and we were away from her crib. I heart baby-wearing!


Turn off the TV & electronics. I know this one is really hard these days, but you should seriously consider limiting the amount of time your baby spends in front of a screen. I am guilty myself of using the TV and video games as a babysitter with my older kids, or caving and letting them play on my phone when I just need them to behave for a few minutes. I mean, we adults spend a good amount of time on our devices, right? How do you deny the little ones? Well, try. Hard. Kids need interactive, creative, fun, imaginative play that uses all of their senses, and they can't get all of that from a touch screen. I've seen some toddlers who can navigate an iPhone better than I can! There will be plenty of time for them to stare at a screen when they are older. Much, much older. 

Feed your baby good food. This one is huge, and you need to start early to create good eating habits. Over the last year (pretty much since Harper started eating solid foods) my entire family started changing the way we were eating, little by little. I realized how much junk we were consuming and I was worried about feeding it to a baby. Now, we try to stick to mostly organic fruits and veggies, organic milk and eggs, farm-raised meat, and we've cut way down on the amount of processed foods we eat. Sure, some weeks are better than others (depending on my mood and hormones at the grocery store), and we still indulge on foods we love sometimes, but it's easy to see how much we, the parents, affect our little ones' eating habits. If your home is stocked with junk and your baby sees you eating nothing but junk they are going to mimic those eating habits. Set a good example and eat healthy foods- encourage your baby to eat good, nutritious, healthy food that will help them grow and have energy, and hopefully they will continue those habits into adulthood and pass them along to your grandchildren!

I am so happy and proud of Gerber's decision to make all of their Good Start® Infant Formulas Non-GMO. Because they have made this change, Gerber® can offer non-GMO products to moms with a wide variety of needs, like those who supplement, those with babies who need a soy formula, those who have babies with tolerance issues, etc. 

What is your though on the Non-GMO initiative? I'd love to hear your own #formulaforhappiness tips and tricks as well.


How to Decorate a Mom Cave {guest blog post}

Wednesday, December 16, 2015


Hi lovelies! Today I have a really cool guest post from Modernize.com! This post is full of tips for decorating your "mom cave," which is right up my alley at the moment. You may or may not recall, but my craft room is still a disaster zone in desperate need of a makeover and some major organization, so I thought it would fun to share these fun tips before the holidays get too crazy. Enjoy!


How to Decorate a Mom Cave
Kaitlin Krull

We’ve all heard of the man cave: a space set apart from the rest of the house just for men, filled with beer, TVs, sports, and all kinds of other stereotypically male pastimes. How very 1950s. If you think your house is in need of a social revolution, then it’s time to set aside some space just for moms. Here are some the essentials for a perfect mom cave.

Choose your color palette
Just because your mom cave is a woman’s space doesn’t mean it has to be filled with pink, tulle, and flowers. If these things are to your taste, then go for it! But don’t be afraid to decorate your space with neutrals or monochrome, or even bright pops of color. The space should be exactly how you like it, and not conform to any social stereotypes. If you want a bright green wall, then go for it!

via Caitlin Wilson Textiles

Furnish your space
For moms who work all day in or out of the house, a place to put your feet up is a must in your cave. An oversized armchair with lots of cushions and soft blankets will help your space to feel relaxing, but be warned that you are likely to fall asleep there and not emerge for hours at a time. A serious problem, I know. After you’ve chosen the perfect chair, make sure you have a place to house your computer and the trashy books you are required to have in your room (see the next paragraph), as well as a photograph or two of your family. Or George Clooney...no one will know!

via Our Fifth House

Organize
I haven’t yet met a mom who doesn’t love a tidy home. Whether you’re a naturally organized person or have learned the skill of tidying after becoming a mother, you appreciate a floor free of Legos and desks and bookshelves free from clutter. In order for your mom cave space to be truly relaxing, have it set up in such a way that things are relatively neat. Don’t go too crazy here, though; your mom cave should be a place where you can forget about responsibilities for awhile. A basket or two to catch all of the random stuff you accumulate should suffice. (Side note: if you want your mom cave to be filthy and unkempt, then go for it, girl! It’s your space, so do what you like!)

via Modernize

Stash your cave
A good mom cave has room for all your favorite hobbies. While lots of moms enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, and crafting, plenty of others love binge watching Deadliest Catch and playing computer games. Have a craft station in your mom cave if you like, but make sure you have some elements in your space to help you really relax, too. Good (trashy) books and magazines are a mom cave must, as is a stash of the indulgent treats you normally have to hide from your children. Just make sure no one knows where you keep your secret sweets.

via Buzzfeed

If none of these ideas seems appealing to you, then feel free to make your own space exactly how you like it. The only requisite of a mom cave is that it is only yours. The possibilities are endless! The only catch? There are no promises this won’t happen:

Good luck and happy (mom) caving!


Keeping it pure, simple, & chemical-free w/ Water Wipes!

Monday, December 14, 2015

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

The last 17 months have been a whirlwind, let me tell you! Adjusting to life as a mom of three after being a mom of two for so long has been a bit of a juggling act. I figured I knew everything I needed to know this time around- which products to use, what baby gear was absolutely necessary (and which ones were completely useless), and I was positive that I wanted to be much more cautious about sticking to natural products with baby number 3. See, my first 2 babies had the most sensitive skin ever, and I quickly learned to read and watch all labels carefully to avoid a rash or a crazy breakout of eczema. Because of that,  I decided to opt for everything to be fragrance-free and labeled for sensitive skin, just in case baby Harper was anything like her big brother and sister. 

As it turns out, she's exactly like her brother and sister and her skin is even more sensitive to fragrances and chemicals. After a stubborn bout of diaper rash that just wouldn't go away, I finally started looking into the wipes I was using on her. They said fragrance-free and were labeled as "safe to use on the most sensitive skin." However, I flipped the package of wipes over and looked at the ingredient list (side note: this was the first time I'd actually read the ingredient list). After the first two ingredients, aloe and water, I was shocked to see a list of about 20 different chemicals that I couldn't even begin to pronounce. Could these be contributing to Harper's horrible rash? Could that be why she's been flinching and screaming when I gently wipe her little red bum with these chemical-laden wipes?! I had to find a better wipe option.

I headed to my happy place, Target, to peruse the baby aisle in search of a truly chemical free wipe. They had to exist, right? That's when I first saw the display for WaterWipes, and as soon as I read the label I was wishing someone would have clued me into them sooner.



WaterWipes is a premium European brand and is a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients: 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. That's it. No harmful, hard to pronounce chemicals, as well as no preservatives. It's the closest you can come to cleaning your baby with just pure water, all wrapped up in a convenient little package! WaterWipes was recently awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association and is perfect for babies who are prone to rashes and have sensitive skin or eczema. Having trouble with recurring rashes? Switch to WaterWipes- a safer, natural option for your little one. 


I now use these wipes for everything- not just for wiping baby butts. Have a snotty nose that needs wiping? WaterWipes are great for that. Sticky, grubby hands? Even the big kids can use WaterWipes for that, and they won't end up smelling like a baby wipe afterward. Dribble some coffee down your shirt? WaterWipes! Sitting in the pickup line at school and notice your dashboard is dusty? WaterWipes works great for that, too! Because it contains no chemicals it's safe to use on just about anything. 

WaterWipes have been a godsend for my little one's sensitive skin! I recommend them to all of my mama friends. From one mom to another, here's a little extra info: because they don't contain preservatives, an opened pack of WaterWipes should be used within 1 month, and a sealed package will keep for up to 15 months. Also, WaterWipes are different from other wipes and are not interfolded- this keeps the environment within the package to remain sterile, and it is not recommended to store with wipes in a different container (to keep them sterile you should keep them in their original packaging). 

To find WaterWipes near you, use their store locator! You can also follow WaterWipes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest

They make a great baby shower gift, from one mom to another :)

Tween holiday style w/ Justice

Friday, December 11, 2015




I can't believe how quickly the time goes by when it comes to raising children. One day they're babies and rely on you for everything, and in the blink of an eye, they've grown up and turned into a smart and sassy little 7-year-old with their own sense of style and fashion. Gone are the days when I could just find something "cute" (she hates that word right now) for my daughter Lily to wear- apparently I don't know what's cool for girls her age. Even if I did, I doubt she'd admit it! She knows what she likes and she wants to be the one making the choices, which is why she was so excited when I told her she was going on a little pre-Christmas shopping spree at Justice.


First off, I had no idea Justice had clothes for girls as young as my Lily. I thought we were still years away from shopping at the "big girl" stores, but it turns out I was wrong- Justice starts at a size 5 and goes up to a 20XL, which means my "little" girl is big enough to shop there. This is actually great news because it's the go-to destination for stylish tween girls this holiday season. Whether shopping in-store or online, Justice makes it easy and hassle-free for anyone with a tween girl in their life to find great holiday gifts!

Walking into Justice for the first time was like Lily's ultimate fantasy. She's such a fashionista these days and was totally overwhelmed by the amount of glitz and glam in the store. Sparkles! Sequins! Graphic shirts, jeans, sweaters, shoes, accessories, oh my! They have anything and everything a stylish little girl could ask for, with everyday low price fashions your tween will love this holiday season. Heck, I even saw some stuff I wanted!


After steering Lily away from the giant Beanie Boo stuffed animals (she's got a little collection going), we headed straight over to the holiday styles and started looking for a new Christmas dress. She wanted something red, sparkly, and super pretty, and she immediately found what she was looking for with this gorgeous red sequin dress. We even found a lovely black cropped sweater to go over it and to make it appropriate for all occasions. 


Lily loved the dressing room and shopping experience at Justice. Once we told the sales gal that we would be trying on a lot of outfits, she told us she'd get Lily her own personal dressing room to use. She got such a kick out of the girl writing her name on the board outside of her dressing room- it was just for her! All of the Justice employees were so helpful with helping me find the right size for her and helping us accessorize her new outfits. It was almost like Lily had her own personal shopper and I got to sit back with my iced coffee and watch her model everything she tried on- that is so not how shopping usually is for me! Mom win. 


Once we got home we just had to lay out all of her loot and see what she got. I've got quite the savvy little shopper! I taught her how to mix and match some basic layering tees and tanks with classics that can go with everything, and of course, she had to throw in a couple of stuffed animals. I'm so glad she stuck with the sparkly dress and I love the hat she picked out too- with a rhinestone "L" on it, of course.



Do you have a tween you'll be shopping for this holiday season? ShopJustice.com has you covered with the Justice Holiday Gift Guide to help you find the perfect gift for the little fashionista in your life. Plus, starting on 11/26 every Justice shopper will get a Style Perk with every purchase, which means you'll get $15 off your next purchase of $40 or more. 


Want a chance to win amazing Justice prizes for your tween? Enter the Justice Wishes Sweepstakes for a chance to win the Ultimate Justice VIP Experience with an iPad and shopping spree. Between 12/1 and 12/24, snap a photo of your tween's holiday wish into the Justice Wishes Sweepstakes to win weekly prizes like $250 Justice gift cards or a shopping spree! I know my tween would absolutely freak she won. She's already asking when we can go shopping again. 


Do you have a tween in your life who would love to shop here?

Tutorial: personalizing your #GiftofPhilips {Sonicare for Kids}

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GiftOfPhilips #CollectiveBias

When it comes to playing Santa Claus, there's a tradition in my family that the kids always get a new toothbrush in their stockings. With all of the holiday snacking, candy, and goodies, their teeth could use some extra brushing, and Santa loves to give practical gifts, doesn't he?

This year is no exception to that traditional rule, but I'm trying to kick it up a notch so that my kids can put their best face forward this holiday season. They're getting older, I'm getting busier, and I sometimes find myself slacking on making sure they keep up on their oral hygiene. When they were little I always made sure to remind them to brush in the morning and at bedtime, but now, not so much. Homework, chores, and other responsibilities get in the way and I'll realize it's been 3 days since I reminded my 11-year-old son to brush his teeth, and I'm willing to bet he "forgot" too. Why do kids hate brushing their teeth so darn much? Someone needs to make it fun.


That's why I was so excited when I found the Philips Sonicare for Kids at my local Walmart. My husband and I both use Sonicare toothbrushes, and I've been debating whether or not to get my older kids their very own Sonicares too. The one I chose has Bluetooth technology, which connects the toothbrush to an app on your phone. It sounded a little crazy at first, but then I realized it's not just a fun, interactive game to engage kids in brushing. It also tracks their brushing habits for me and I can see when they last brushed and for how long, which is so helpful. No more trying to keep track of it all in my head- just check the app. It will even send you an alert if your kids miss a brushing! The Sonicare app is available for Apple or Android and features this super cute little furry brushing partner, Sparkly, to help get kids excited about brushing their teeth. Not only that, but I know my kids are doing a better job too because Sonicare toothbrushes deliver 500 brushstrokes per second and remove up to 75% more plaque than a manual toothbrush. I have to agree with the 98% of parents who say it's easier to get their kids to brush longer and better- Sonicare for Kids makes it easy and fun!

Now, if your kids are anything like my kids, you'll appreciate this next part. I'm going to show you a fun way to personalize the Sonicare for Kids toothbrush so that you never have to run the risk of getting them mixed up or left behind when you're traveling. Plus, it makes for such a cute gift. If you're giving the gift of Philips Sonicare this holiday season, make sure to make it extra special and personalize it! That's basically a crafter's motto- personalize it! Of course, I had to bust out my BFF, my Silhouette Cameo, for this project, but if you don't have a cutting tool you could just use stencils and scissors. 

Here are my supplies:

  • Silhouette Cameo and cutting mat
  • vinyl 
  • transfer paper or contact paper
  • scissors
  • washi tape


First, I created my design. Since I'm working with a small area, I decided to keep my design simple and went with a simple, modern looking monogram. Here's a little note on monograms: A monogram is not the same as a person's initials- the letters go in a different order. Monogram etiquette usually goes like this: first, last, then middle, with the last name being the largest letter in the center. So for example, my name is Melissa Ann Swenson, so my monogram would be mSa, while my initials would be MAS. This one is for my daughter Lily, so I designed her monogram and sized it down to a little less than an inch in size- perfect for the Sonicare for Kids handle.


I loaded my piece of vinyl onto my cutting mat, then fed the mat into the Silhouette for cutting. With my cut settings at blade 2, thickness 9, and my speed slowed down to 5, I made the cut. Sometimes when I do a project like and it cuts perfectly I like to make duplicates while I'm at it. Sometimes I'll cut 2 or 3 or 10. You'll see why later. 


Remove the vinyl, including the backing, from the mat, and trim the design down to size. Next, I had to "weed out" or remove the unwanted vinyl from the design- simply peel up a corner of the vinyl away from the backing, and you'll be left with just your cut design still on the backing. Don't forget the centers of any letters you might have, like the A in mine (and if you don't have a hook tool like the one I have you can just use a pin or needle).


Now here's the trick- transfer paper (or contact paper, if you prefer). Transfer paper is going to allow us to pick up and place the entire design all at once, rather than piece by piece. Cut the transfer paper big enough to cover the entire design. Peel off the backing and place the sticky side over your design, then press firmly over the entire design. Make sure you're smoothing over the entire thing. Then slowly peel up a corner of the transfer paper, and your design should lift up with it. 


Now you're ready to place your design. I like to use an alcohol soaked wipe to clean the surface of the area where I'm applying vinyl first to ensure a long lasting hold- I highly recommend doing this if you want your design to stick! Once it dries, carefully place your design, making sure it's centered and lined up exactly how you want it. I like to start at the center and work my way to the edges, ensuring I smooth out any bubbles that might form. Make sure to press down firmly and get every corner, and then slowly peel off the transfer paper to reveal your design! 


I decided to go one step further and personalize the charging base too since I just knew an epic meltdown would ensue if even the chargers were mixed up or accidentally used by the other person. Can you even imagine? Anyway, I used the other monogram I had previously cut (I told you it would come in handy) and I placed it on the charging base. Then I used some washi tape to go around the front edge. I love the way this turned out! The blues matched perfectly and I love how the geometric pattern on the washi tape pairs with the modern monogram design. So cute and chic for my Lily!



When I was done personalizing Lily's Sonicare I couldn't bear to look at Ayden's poor, plain, un-personalized toothbrush any longer, so I just went right ahead and did his too.


I have to confess: I couldn't wait to show Lily, so I decided to just give it to her early (I'm so bad about that!) She loved how I personalized her Philips Sonicare for Kids toothbrush and couldn't wait to try it out either. She said it felt "tickly" and told me that she couldn't stop running her tongue over her teeth because they've never felt so clean and smooth before. That's something I can definitely attest to as well- it's one of my favorite things about my Sonicare too!


Bring on the Christmas candy! My kids are ready to put their best face forward.

Can you think of a kid in your life who would love one of these for the holidays?
How would you personalize it? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Merry (early) Christmas w/ #JustDanceDisneyParty2

Monday, December 7, 2015



I think it's safe to say that both of my older kids are officially video game freaks right now. Lily, my 7-year-old daughter, especially loves the Kinect games because she can never stop moving, and Kinect games require you to move around...a lot! It was no surprise to me at all when I found the new Just Dance Disney Party 2 game at the top of her Christmas wish list. She already owns and has memorized all of the moves for the first Just Dance Disney Party game, so I knew I had to get it for her- she's a huge Disney lover and she's quite the little dancer. 

We've been cooped up inside the house a lot lately, and I wanted to give my restless little Lily something to help keep her busy and happy until Christmas, so I decided to surprise her. She was so excited to discover that Merry, our Elf on the Shelf, brought her Just Dance Disney Party 2


I have to admit, I did jump in there and dance along to a few songs when she first turned the game on. It's really fun! And a little challenging if you're uncoordinated like me. Lily is a pro, though, and she had no problem keeping up with the moves on the screen. Just Dance Disney Party 2 has over 20 songs from the latest Disney Channel hits, with songs from movies like "The Descendants" and from shows like "Girl Meets World" and "Liv and Maddie." They really incorporated the characters' looks into the game too, so fans will recognize their favorite movies and shows while they dance along. Lily's favorite song to dance to is "Evil Like Me" from The Descendants. 


I love watching my kids play Just Dance Disney Party 2 because it gets them up and moving! Seriously, they have so much pent up energy from not being able to run around outside because of the freezing rain and snow, and this is a great way to let them get it out. It also makes for a fun sleepover or play date activity, as well as for parties, because Just Dance Disney Party 2 allows up to 4 players dance at a time! You can be competitive and square off against each other for the highest score or you can dance cooperatively and try to get the best group total- the choice is yours! Lily loves to practice by herself until she gets so hot that she has to change into something cooler, and then she'll ask me to play and beat me by about 50,000 points. 



You can pick up Just Dance Disney Party 2 just in time for the holiday season for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems. Learn more about Just Dance Disney Party 2 and see the complete track list on Ubisoft.com. You can also follow Just Dance on Facebook & Twitter and see how much fun everyone is having with #JustDanceDisneyParty2 


If you've got kids and if you want a fun family game, this one needs to be on your Christmas list!
