Sponsor Spotlight: Ulysses Press "For My Children"

One thing that I have always wanted to do was keep a Journal, but I never have been good at keeping up with writing in books. Now that I'm a mother, trying to keep up with a journal means so much more. This journal is perfect for me to fill out and keep for my children when they get older. It would be great for them to be able to go back to this book years from now and see what thoughts I had.

Sponsor Spotlight: For Small Hands-Montessori Resources

Spring has arrived in Ohio and well actually I don't remember winter this year we only got one or two big snows, and I am not complaining one bit either. I am a fan of warm weather I like to be outside with the kids instead of stuck in a closed up house. One thing that I enjoy doing is gardening and the boys have taken a interest in it as well. For the past 4 years we have been planting a garden at my in-laws house because we don't have the land at our house. But we do have flower beds which has become Pumpkin and I's thing it seems he loves to help me plant and take care of the flowers. Were Bubba is all about planting and taking care of the actual garden at his Nana and Papa's house.

Superior Nut Company Review & Giveaway

With Mothers and Fathers Day around the corner you'll want to check out the Superior Nut Company. They have so many items to select from it's hard to choose well at least for me it was hard to choose. I was given a $25 gift certificate for a review and I had a very hard time choosing what I wanted to get. The only thing was I had to pay for my shipping no big deal.

TV Flashbacks Review & Giveaway

Do you remember spending Saturday morning watching some great shows like "Where On Earth Is Carmen SanDiego, HeathCliff, Gadget Boy and The Best of C.O.P.S."? I know I do but had forgot about them because they are not on TV anymore. We do not have cable in our home because we do not agree with most of the children's television shows on TV now and days. TV Flashbacks has so many great TV shows that I remember from when I was growing up. They have so many DVD's that I could literally spend hours looking through them all. I dare you to go and look at their website and not end up smiling as you recall your childhood memories of these shows. But whats even better is their prices are just as great!

One thing my family loves is VeggieTales Movies. We love all the stories and wonderful characters in this series . We love that our children are learning the basic bible stories along with what we feel are good morals. There has not been a VeggieTales movie released yet that we have not liked or watched more then a dozen times.
