I recently received the book Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day: A Treasury of Six Original Stories by Karen B. Winnick to review. My daughter loves to read and she has been reading this book over and over. She even reads this book to her 3 year old cousin. She really gets into this book as she is reading.

Myrtle Beach Safari: TIGERS Experience

Myrtle Beach Safari
While on our Thanksgiving trip to Myrtle Beach, my family got the great pleasure of going to the T.I.G.E.R.S. Experience at the Preservation Station. This was a memory maker that my children will never forget. Angel got to feed an adult tiger, Bubba got to bottle feed a tiger cub, a monkey tried to steal Pumpkins hat and also held hands with Peanut. Since two of my children are under the age of 6 we could not go to the Myrtle Beach Safari tour but we were able to go to the Preservation Station for the T.I.G.E.R.S. Experience they have available for all ages.

Create a Reading Space with Floor Bloom

Floor Bloom

One thing that the girls love to do is sit in their room to color and read books. Since they are getting bigger we are working on slowly re-doing their room so they can have a reading and coloring area. I try to not have any big chairs or furniture in their room that is not needed as they have the smallest room in the house. So when I got the opportunity to work with Floor Bloom with the Holiday Gift Guide I was super excited.

My Audio Pets Speakers

My older children are all into music and wifi speakers. So when I got the opportunity to review some of MyAudioPets.com wireless speakers, I knew they would be perfect for the kids for Christmas as well as Holiday Gift Guide. The speakers are animal themed speakers that rock and are adorable!

One thing I hate as most women do is shaving and worrying if you missed a spot. Nothing is worse then being out in public and noticing you missed a spot while shaving. You feel like everyone will see it and you will be totally embarrassed by all the pointing and laughing. Well that feeling of embarrassment can hit the road thanks to the Sphynx Razor .

I recently received the opportunity to review a wonderful children's devotional called 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids.

Laurence King Publishing

Our family loves books and games! I feel they are some of the best gifts you can give to kids. Because they build much needed skills that the kids will take with them for the rest of  their lives. My kids all have different personalities when it comes to the type of stories they enjoy. Like Pumpkin is not a big reader due to speech issues but he loves books about drawing and being creative. 

Rocket: A Journey Through the Pages Book

One thing my kids love is science and space especially my boys. They all love the idea of rockets and how they work. I am always looking for fun and interactive books for my younger children. I was excited when I received Rocket: A Journey Through the Pages Book for the kids. I will be giving this book to Sweet Pea for Christmas. I think her and Angel will enjoy this book and sending the rocket through the pages.

Stuff Your Stockings with Welch's & Go Organically *Giveaway*

*This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, you'll be helping to feed the little angels here at Andersons Angels.



With Christmas only 14 days away it is time to think about what you will be putting in the kids stockings. One thing that I always seem to be on the hunt for is yummy snacks to put in the kids stockings other then candy. With having five kids I try to limit the candy that comes in our home. I typically put a few candy canes on the tree but limit those as well because Angel has a big sweet tooth and will eat all of them. This can be challenging sometimes since family likes to give the kids candy. When Welch's asked me if I would like for the kids to try their New Fruit Rolls and Organic Fruit Snacks I was happy to do so.

Sun Tails making Mermaid Dreams Come True

Sun Tail Mermaid Tails


I recently received a Bali Blush Sun Tails Mermaid tail for Sweet Pea. Now Sweet Peas dream of being a Mermaid has come true! Sun Tails has created the world's best swimmable mermaid tails and mermaid flippers. Their mermaid tails are soft, comfortable, and come in a wide variety of designs and colors. They are made of high quality swimsuit fabric with 4-way stretch. The tail seems to run a little big. Sweet Pea is tall for age and I ordered her tail off her clothing size and it is to big so she will have to wait to wear it. We are hoping come summer it will fit her better.

One thing that my girls love are unicorns! I can not tell you how many unicorn stuffed animals they have in their room. When I was given the opportunity to review the book Be a Unicorn & Live Life on the Bright Side I happily accepted. I knew this would be a book that the girls would really enjoy. This little book is a bright and fun book that delivers a positive message with humor and style.

Holiday Must Have Game for Families

One thing I have been trying to get my family more of is board games we can play on family game night. Since the boys and girls rotate weekends at Nana and Papa's house it gives Mr. Anderson and I a chance to have board game nights with the boys. The girls are still a bit young for most board games right now.  Our newest game I have got for game nights is Watch Ya Mouth Throwdown Edition Card Game. It is the evolution of the original, wildly popular, hilarious and challenging tasks - while wearing mouthpieces. Watch Ya Mouth Throwdown Edition takes competition - and laughter - to the next level and builds on the multi-generational gaming phenomena.

Family Thanksgiving in Myrtle Beach 2017

Vacation Myrtle Beach

My family was given the wonderful opportunity to spend our 2017 Thanksgiving in Myrtle Beach at the Crown Reef Resort through Vacation Myrtle Beach. With us being such a large family it is hard to find hotels and resorts that can adequately fit us all in one room. I was very pleased with our Oceanfront Suite at the Crown Reef Resort. The room was very spacious as it had a fully equipped kitchen, 2 queen beds, a sleeper sofa, a Murphy/wall bed, in room-safe and more which made it big and perfect for my big family. Our room also had a balcony that over looked the ocean where we were able to sit and watch dolphins play one day. I liked that they had protective covers on the beds to protect against bed bugs. With so many people coming in and you never know what they bring with them I liked seeing the protective covers.

Typically when I get books they are for the kids to review but occasionally a few adult books sneak through as well. That is the case with the book I recently recived If You Give a Man a Cookie: A Parody. This book comes from New York Times bestselling author Laura Numeroff. Most people know Laura from the hugely popular children's book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie".

It is a gift that lasts a lifetime and one they will use for the rest of their lives. So any chance I get to get them new books I usually jump right on. I especially love when I can get really cute children's books. I recently received the wonderful book One Christmas Bear to review with my kids.

Durable Glass Infusers

With the New Year quickly approaching I am beginning to think about goals for myself. One of those goals will be eating healthier not only for myself but for my family as well. One major part to this is what my family and I drink. I have always been a big soda/pop drinker and I think that is partially because I was born addicted to it. Yes you read that I right born addicted to soda/pop and Pepsi to be exact. While pregnant with peanut I was able to give up soda/pop but have come back to it. I would like to drink more water but have never been a big fan of it unless I can add some kind of flavoring. Typically I add lemon to my water but lately have also been adding some of my essential oils to add some new and different flavors.

Image result for bonta' logo

One thing that I am always on the lookout for is healthier drink options for my family. I am always trying to find ways to get my family to drink something other then soda/pop. None of us really care for plan water and always seem to have a soda/pop in hand. I know that it is not healthy for any of us so I am always willing to try new things. When I got the chance to review Bonta' I happily accepted. Mr. Anderson has been drinking more coconut water recently so I thought he might enjoy the Bonta' drinks.

One thing that I love is eating fresh vegetables especially ones from my in-laws garden. I also love finding new and delicious recipes to use them in as well. I am not sure why but my family had never really grilled our veggies. But now thanks to Cave Tools we are grilling our veggies as well and they are delicious!

A Perfect Time Piece for Anyone


Ladies Wood Watch

One thing that I personally think can finish a outfit is a beautiful watch. Mr. Anderson has to wear business professional (dress shirt & tie) to work everyday. I am not sure why but I think when he wears a watch it just finishes his outfit. I was very excited when I got to give him a early Christmas of a beautiful JORD watch. Since Mr. Anderson is the Human Resources Benefits Manager for his company he needs to look nice and professional at all times.

One thing that I enjoy doing in my free time is coloring. It is one of the ways I like to relax and unwind. With having 5 children I need ways that I am able to relax and unwind after a crazy and hectic day. I have several coloring books that are just mine and the kids know that have to ask if they want a page out of them. I love finding coloring books that are inspirational and unique.

Winter Car Seat Safety

Sponsored Post

Cars.com

With winter quickly approaching it is time to really start to think about car seat safety. Since I live in Ohio we deal with snow in the winter which can make using car seats a total pain. Most people do not realize that car seats and children's heavy winter coats do not mix well. I am guilty of this myself until I was made aware of the danger and now I try to help educate others on this danger. When you allow your child to wear their coat in the car seat you have to loosen the straps so they can fit which leaves the harness to loose to protect your child in a crash.

With the cold and flu season quickly approaching here in Ohio I am starting to get my home ready. There are some simple ways I prepare my home for the cold season. One of the biggest and most important is making sure I clean and functioning cool mist humidifiers for all the bedrooms. I also have diffusers in each room as well so I can diffuse my essential oils to help keep my family healthy.

CrockPot Thursdays: Ranch Roast w/ Veggies


It has been awhile since I have posted a Crockpot Thursday recipe and miss doing them. I love cooking and utilizing my crockpot because it saves me so much time. With having 5 children, a hubby that works 2 jobs, homework, church activities and more I am a busy mom. So finding time to cook my family a healthy meal everyday can become overwhelming but thanks to my crockpot it can be super easy. I do a monthly meal calendar and the majority of the meals are things cooked in the crockpot. This week I am sharing my Ranch Roast with Veggies Recipe with you.

Decorate For Christmas Giveaway


It is time to start thinking about how you will decorate your home for the 2017 Holidays season. Sometimes that is super simple if you stick with a set theme. I like to mix things up with my decorating which sometimes drives myself and Mr. Anderson crazy. I love my tree being uniform with everything matching but when you have kids that just is not always possible. My kids want everything bright and very colorful and I simply want just a couple colors. So when I give in and let the kids have their way with helping decorate I get a bit stressed.

Spruce up Your Front Door with Christmas Forest


In the Anderson household we typically do not start decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I feel we should get through one holiday before jumping to the next. Plus I really like fall decorations and hate putting them away because that means winter is pretty much here. While I love the excitement my children have for winter I do not share that joy with them. I prefer the warm weather over the snow and cold.
