The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer is Here – and It Gave Me Goosebumps! | #Incredibles2 #DisneyPixar

Incredibles came out in 2004 and immediately skyrocketed to the top of my most favorite Disney movies ever list. I sort of have a thing for superheroes, in case you never noticed that. I loved everything about it – the family, the superpowers, the villains, the backstory… It was incredibly (no pun intended) well done. With the way it ended I knew that it left the door open for a second one, and I was dying to see that happen. When it was announced, I was thrilled – and now that time is almost here! Next year (June 15, 2018), Incredibles 2 will be hitting theaters, and the teaser trailer that was just released gave me goosebumps.

Countdown to Christmas with the Playmobil Advent Calendars + 5 Playmobil Holiday Gift Ideas! | #playmobil

One of our favorite things to do as a family around the holidays is open up an advent calendar (or two!) together. Every year, each of my daughters pick one out and then wait, very impatiently, until December 1st. This year, we were sent a couple from Playmobil – and they were jumping for joy! I expected them to fight over the same one, but they each grabbed one and were happy as a couple of clams!

Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature Will Have the Whole Family Laughing | #NutJob2

I am sure I have said this time and time again, but one of our favorite things to do as a family is cuddle up and watch a movie. We have family movie night once a week, and I truly think it is something we all look forward to. When we first saw trailers for Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, we knew it was a movie we would all love to see. No matter how many times we saw it, we were still laughing! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to theaters to see it, but that’s OK because Universal sent us an advance copy to check out!

Gifts Your Kids Would Love to Receive this 2017 Holiday Season | #THBGG #GiftsForKids

I don’t know about you, but I get overwhelmed each holiday season. Having two little girls to shop for can be difficult because there are so many toys out there to choose from. This list contains items that my daughters (and my husband and I!) love. We feel these will make great holiday gifts this year. Each item on this guide was personally tested and/or approved by Mama’s Geeky or her children. This guide may contain affiliate links.

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Just Dance 2018 | #VideoGames #UbiStars

It is no secret that the Smith family is a family of gamers. Yes, we are a busy bunch with lots of extracurricular activities like basketball and volunteering – but we always make time for gaming. Something you may not know about my daughters is that this is their third  and fourth year of dance classes. It is something they look forward to every year. So when they can combine their passion for dance, and their love of video games, they are two happy girls. That is where Just Dance 2018 comes in.

Create Hours of Family Fun and Memories with Hedbanz | #SpinMasterGames #GameNight

It should come as no surprise that the Smiths love a good family game night. At least once a week we order pizza, pull out a stack of games, and spend some quality time together. But recently, we haven’t gotten past the first game because we just have so much fun with it! That game is Spin Master Games’s Hedbanz. Our neighbors probably want to know what is going on in our house because the laughing fits get so loud – they can hear them.

Celebrate the Holidays & Win A Copy of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Holiday Hearts | #MyLittlePony #MLP

My daughters love My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. It is easily one of their favorite TV shows, and I can’t blame them. It is one of my favorites as well. Yes, it is a little different than the My Little Ponies I grew up watching, but it is still really entertaining for the whole family. As we prepare for a busy holiday season, it was perfect timing for a holiday themed My Little Pony DVD to show up on our doorstep. My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Holiday Hearts is a great way to get everyone in the holiday mood!

Vampirina is All About Family, Girl Power, & Acceptance: A Chat With Chris Nee! | #Vampirina #ThorRagnarokEvent

My daughters are head over heels in love with the latest addition to Disney Junior – Vampirina! We tuned in for the debut on October 1st and have been watching it ever since. It quickly became a favorite of mine as well because of the great lessons it teaches my girls. Even within the first episode it was clear that the creators of Vampirina wanted kids to know that everyone is the same on the inside. Yes, Vampirina is a vampire, but that doesn’t mean she can’t make friends. Every time she lets a friend in on her secret, they accept her for who she is.

Why We Love Our Pley Disney Princess Box Subscription | #DisneyPrincess #Pley

As you likely know by now, my family and I are huge Disney fans. Several months ago we discovered a new Disney subscription box – the Pley Disney Princess box. It comes every two months and each box is themed to a Disney Princess. So far we have received Ariel, Rapunzel, and our latest box – Merida. This is something that my girls have been loving – and I think many kids would enjoy it. What a great gift for a Disney Princess fan this holiday season.

5 Must Have Halloween DVDs for Kids from NCircle Entertainment | #Halloween

One of our favorite holidays is Halloween. There is nothing like cuddling up with the family, putting on a spooky movie or TV show, and eating some treats. Our daughters are pretty young still (4 and 6) so we tend to select videos that they can watch – but that we will enjoy too. That is why we love NCircle and were thrilled to get some Halloween DVDs from them. These are must haves for families with young kids!

Tips for Choosing Age Appropriate Games for Your Kids | #Gaming #SuperMarioOdyssey

As you probably know, we play a lot of video games in our family. My daughters are pretty young – only 4 and 6 years old. Because of this we need to really pay attention to video game ratings. We know that there are many benefits to gaming for kids and thanks to GameStop and UpNorthLive, we were given some great tips on age appropriate gaming. Sometimes my husband and I forget just how young they are while selecting video games as gifts for the girls.

Get Free Halloween Pictures at a Portrait Studio Near You

My husband is super talented when it comes to crafty things. He creates a lot of the DIY stuff here at Mama’s Geeky, including my daughters’ Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Halloween costumes! These cosplay outfits came out so good that we had talked about getting some professional photos taken. As if by magic, shortly after I received an offer to work with one of my favorite studios again – Portrait Innovations.
