Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It's the only time of year that grown adults can dress up like characters and not be ridiculed. Plus, it's pretty awesome to help your kids get dressed up too! Halloween is right around the corner and I haven't even gotten our costumes yet. The thought of waiting on lines, trying on costumes and learning they don't have my size, and having to drive to several stores just to find the things I need, has caused me to seek out other options for our costumes this year. Here's where Wonder Costumes comes in.

Located in sunny Miami, Florida, the company ships to countries world-wide and are renowned for their excellent customer service and competitive prices.

My Own- #MOANA de @Disney

BB receives news y advances direct from Walt Disney Studios. Shared for the Amor a Disney, sin compensation- except for the alegria they give Babushka y su familia. Opinions stated here, como siempre, are BB's.

disney Moana movie poster

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!  

The latest animated film de Disney ya viene, and it's gonna be BUENISIMO!!  
Quee??  JU SO FONII!!! Ok Si, they are ALL BUENISIMO, 
pero this one holds a special place in Babushka's corazon.  Primero, a sneak peek.

Y ahora a quickie synopsis-

"Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the mighty demigod Maui  who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity."

Now porque the special place in BB's corazon?

The story of a special girl who believes with her heart and follows with action. 
Much like mi nieta, La Princesa. 

Hasta hay un parecido verdad?

And let's not forget the Gung Ho Grandmother who shares the stories. 
Who 100%  believes in her grandchild, her dreams, and her potential.

Gramma Tala y Babushka- otro amazing parecido.

Para continuar, to continue the joy of the journey, BB was given some activity sheets y coloring sheets to share with her Beautifuls.  For faster loading, you can see them here- MOANA Activity/Coloring Sheets

Hispanic Heritage Month- Our Past, Our Pride, and The Power.

Babushka originally penned this for the bilingual N.Florida publication Conexion, the Oct. 2016 edition. The title for the article was "Hispanic Heritage Month- The Pride & The Power."

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!

In 1968 President Lyndon Johnson issued the first Presidential Proclamation 3869, which stated in part:

Wishing to pay special tribute to the Hispanic tradition, and having in mind the fact that our five Central American neighbors celebrate their Independence Day on the fifteenth of September and the Republic of Mexico on the sixteenth, the Congress by House Joint Resolution 1299, has requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating the week including September 15 and 16 as National Hispanic Heritage Week.

It was later changed to a full month when the number of Latinos grew substantially to be placed on the official US Census questionnaire.

And so it has been done every year since then.  Babushka gives thanks to this great country in recognizing the impact and importance our gente have made and do not take for granted the responsibility that comes with that.  The richness of our cultura, the history of siglos and the strength and beauty of it all is for us to emphasis and not forget. To many, Hispanic Heritage Month is the only time our accomplishments are shared and we must take advantage of this.

The querido editor of Conexion, David Triana, acting as Master Of Ceremonies at the Hispanic Fest 2016, benefiting non profit United For a Good Cause Annual Emerald Coast Christmas Miracle Needy Children’s Fiesta, on the importance of the festival,

“Our success is not based on how many Hispanics are going to show up —
we know they’re going to show up — but by how many non-Hispanics show up,” David Triana

Babushka wholeheartedly agrees with this statement and would even say this is true for all moments of Hispanic Heritage Month. The more we learn about our fellow Earth dwellers, their cultures, their customs, their beliefs, the less we fear and appreciate them and their offerings to our world.  Pero BB would like to expand on this, take it deeper and even inward.  For Hispanics/Latinos themselves this is the perfect momento for self discovery.  Take advantage of the topic and explore the richness and historia of our gente.


From earliest civilizations- Aztec,Taino,

Theater With A Mission- Cardenio monologue from #LocoForLove based on Miguel de Cervantes works

the Spanish Golden Age- Cervantes,Sor Juana ,

BB interviewing for the first time on camera.

Part of the ALHF Roadtrip Recap.
to our part in US history, 1565 first European settlement,
 and even the early days of US citizenship, nuestra raza was a part of it all!

Not only a part of it, but part of US culture too.

Ahora mismo,  Mexico and Colombia are the only nations with larger Hispanic populations than the U.S.  Not realize la fuerza de los ciglos within us, not bring forth la potencia we US Latinos share?  JU SO FONII!!  A wonderful place for us to start is http://hispanicheritagemonth.gov/ . Here they showcase past and present, and events all over the globe.  Whatever forma you decide to follow, be it your immediate familia’s history, or a particular subject, art form you enjoy, learn about your Hispanic Heritage. Porque Beautifuls, with Pride there is Power. Y somos dignos de both.  


Learn,Educate,Live our raices.
Comenzamos con un mes, y despues toda una vida,
para complimentar y completar the enrichment of All.

Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.

#ABLEUnited #DisabilitySavings for our Children. #sponsored

Babushka is honored to be part of ABLE Mama'Bassadors program between ABLEUnited and Bloggin' Mamas.  Opinions stated are all BB's.


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!!

Isn't that picture just precioso?  Sweetie and BB had our granddaughter La Princesa for a little bit this verano and some wonderful memories were made.  Now that she's young (and so are we- relatively) we were able to have lots of fun and meet all her needs and wants.  Quee??  Ok Si, we totally spoiled her, and hope to be able to do so for a long time.  Lamentablemente she is growing up way too fast and before we know it she'll be off on her own.  A sobering thought for all families, but for those of us who's loved ones have special needs, who've been diagnosed with disabilities, it can be downright scary. Babushka has written about this before and will say it otra vez.  Thankfully, Florida has the ABLE Account, enacted for the ABLE Act which authorizes states to create tax-free savings accounts for individuals with disabilities.


And why specifically an ABLE Account when there are other ways to save?


Who can have an ABLEUnited account?


There's an Eligibility Wizard if you'd like to be sure your loved one qualifies.


It takes 15 mins to sign up for a lifetime of assistance.


THIS is the part Sweetie and BB are very happy about.  As grandparents we can contribute to La Princesa's account with no problem or penalty for anyone.  ESOOOOOOO!!!!  Abuelos, Amigos, Anyone can help with a child's future.

The 4 most asked questions about this program are shared  HERE
pero if you still need assistance...

If you or someone you know could use this program please share it.  

Keep an eye out for another TWEETY FIESTA about the ABLEUnited plan, 
porque if you think Babushka has said todo...
