Halloween Adventure Tinkerbell costumes *Review*

Have your children decided what they want to dress up as yet for Halloween? I know my children have I think they start planning it as soon as school starts up in September. This year I decided to have Sweet Pea dress up as her favorite Disney character Tinkerbell. I was so excited when I found a super cute Tinkerbell costume on Halloween Adventure's website.

Holiday Gift Guide: Ornaments with Love

I have always been a fan of personalized things especially Christmas Ornaments! While growing up my Grandma would make a special Ornament for each grandchild for her tree. Though back then it was just a colored ornament with our name and birth date on it, it meant a lot to have one because we knew they were made with love. With times changing I wanted to find somewhere I could get really cute personalized ornaments to add to my families tree. Ornaments with Love is that site!

Spookley Square Pumpkin DVD review & giveaway

Have you ever read the story Spookley the Square Pumpkin to your children? I know that I have read the book to my boys and they really enjoyed it! So I am sure that they will enjoy watching the DVD along with their sister now. 

"In the world where Spookley lives, "the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins." But Spookley is not round - he's square - and he is often teased for his odd shape. Soon, however he is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe - three hilarious spiders who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the "Pick of the Patch" on Halloween."

October is ADHD Awareness Month

Have you all meet Bubba my oldest son?

He looks like a normal healthy almost 9 year old boy right... Well he is but he also suffers from ADHD a condition that I knew very little about except that the kids are usually horrible. That is not the case at all Bubba is one of the sweetest and most caring young men you will meet and has a great love for God and his family. But he struggles with sitting still and focusing while at school and even at home while doing homework. But that doesn't make him a bad kid does it?? Well in the eyes of some YES it made a horrible kid and they let him know that and tore this sweet boy down by bullying him.

EL RESTAURANTE Authentic Tortilla Chips Review

One thing that my family loves to eat is chips and different kinds of dips. With that said I would like to introduce you to one of our favorite brands Snyder of Berlin. I grew up on Snyder of Berlin's Original BBQ chips though I lived in Florida and they weren't available family would bring bags down anytime they visited. So I have been a fan of this brand since I was a little girl. Now that I am all grown up with a family of my own I have passed along my love for this brand to my children!

Traveling Around the World

Are you planning on traveling out of the country soon? There are many things to get ready when planning to travel out of the country. But what happens when you run into translation problems where do you turn for help?  Were you aware that there are translation agencies out there that can help you?  I know that I was not aware that such agencies existed until recently.

Sponsor Spotlight: Dead Down Wind

If you are a hunter or know someone who likes to hunt then you know that a major thing for them is making sure their clothes are scent free. One thing that I have worried about big time since Jake started hunting is if I am getting his clothes scent free. Since most laundry soaps and dryer sheets all have fragrances added to them you cannot use them while washing your hunting clothing.  With that said I would like to introduce you to a great company that I have gotten the pleasure to work with Dead down Wind.

Drawing with Mark DVD Review & Giveaway

Does your child like to draw and be artistic? I know Bubba does and he is good at it which I think he gets from my mom who is awesome at art! I actually have a painting my mom did on a piece of slate off of my great grandma's barn roof hanging up in Sweet Peas bedroom. I have always enjoyed art and love that my children do as well! I think it is an important thing for all children to get the opportunity to explore art in some form. I always take any opportunity I have to incorporate art into what my family is doing. While on vacation we take shells that we find and make pictures with them as well as build sandcastles all different forms of art that the kids enjoy!

vTech Cora the Smart Cub Review & Giveaway

Recently Sweet Pea and I were given the opportunity to review vtech's new Cora the Smart Cub. Sweet Pea has tons of toys and she typically only plays with her doll babies. She has not showed to much interest in toys that talk to her. But that changed when Cora the Smart Cub arrived. She has really enjoyed playing and interacting with Cora.

Sunoco Gas Gift Card Giveaway

One thing that my family loves to do a lot of is travel. Traveling to us also includes in state traveling as well as out of state. In the fall we do a lot of in state traveling with the kids going to pumpkin patches and apple orchards. Our favorite apple orchard is not very close to home it is about an hour and half away one way. With us currently having a Ford Escape I dread pulling into the gas station because I just hate watching my bank account getting drained by filling up the gas tank to take our family trips.

Gortons Wicked Good Seafood and Sweepstakes!

When I think of frozen seafood I instantly think of Gorton's and their all so famous jingle "Trust the Gorton's fishermen..." I have been feeding my family Gorton's seafood for awhile now. My children insist they do not like fish but they love Gorton's fish sticks. When I tell them they are eating fish they will say "well we don't like fish but we do like fish in stick form..." The silly things children say sometimes.
