Having two little girls in this house, we’ve all become a little Disney obsessed, especially with the Princesses and Mickey Mouse. One minute my daughter is begging me to make her hair grow as long as Rapunzel’s and the next our toddler is running down the hall shouting “meeska mooska Mickey MOUSE!” … it’s a fun time for all of us. And now that we’ve jumped into the world if Apple iProducts, most recently the iPad 2, we’re enjoying a fun assortment of applications that I think are worth sharing.
