My Thoughts:

Usually I am writing about how much Savannah likes a certain show.  But, today, I am excited to share one of Arabella's favorite new shows, which airs on Disney Junior -- Henry HuggleMonster.  Now you would think that a show about monsters would be scary for little ones.  This show is quite the contrary, as Henry and his family is a lovable bunch of friendly monsters that both toddlers and preschoolers will fall in love with.  The first time Arabella sat down to watch this show, as seeing previews for it and asking me to watch it, she couldn't get enough. By the end of the show, she knew all the characters, and wouldn't stop saying, "I want more Henry HuggleMonster!" :-)  Luckily, I had recorded the premiere episode, and it has been viewed countless times since the show began.

I, along with other parents and Henry HuggleMonster fans have bee eagerly awaiting this first ever DVD release from this hit animated Disney Junior series.  While this upcoming DVD release would have made a great stocking stuffer, it has been coming in handy at our house these past few days, as the girls have been staying indoors due to the brutally cold temperatures and snow outside.  To keep the girls entertained, they have been taking turns picking DVD's to watch to help break up the day.  Savannah will choose a variety of television shows on DVD and Disney movies, while Arabella only wants to watch this upcoming DVD release, which contains 6 fun-filled episodes, along with a bonus episode. :-)

And, this upcoming weekend, I have promised the girls that we will be hitting the local craft store to pick up plain t-shirts, so that I can make them their own unique Henry HuggleMonster t-shirts, with one of the three iron-ons that are included inside the DVD case. Stay tuned for pictures of the girls modeling their Henry HuggleMonster tee's soon. :-)

But, in the meantime, why not head on over to Amazon to pre-order HENRY HUGGLEMONSTER: MEET THE HUGGLEMONSTERS for only $16.99, or make a point to pick up this DVD when it arrives in stores on Jan. 14th?  Fans of the shows will go crazy for all 6 episodes that make up this DVD.  I know as my little Henry HuggleMonster fan can't get enough of this DVD, and could watch it 24/7, if I let her. :-)
