I was provided with a sample of this product to facilitate this review, however all opinions are my own. I don’t know if it’s a “phase” or something has just changed, but my 5 year old absolutely cannot stand anything “bothering him” when wearing socks lately.  If there is a string sticking out, or the socks don’t fit...

 I was provided a sample of the pictured Hope Kit for this post, but all opinions are my own! We all know the retail rush that happens after Thanksgiving – Black Friday, Cyber Monday, but did you know about Giving Tuesday?  During Giving Tuesday, families, charities, and businesses from all over will come together to celebrate generosity...

Our pets are family members in our home.  We love them dearly and include them in the Holidays.  They get their own Thanksgiving dinner plates, their own stockings, and presents!  They bring a special warmth to our home.  Our dog, Willy, was adopted from the city shelter, so we love...

We had more snow last Winter than we had in many years. One of our favorite treats when it snows is Snow Cream!   Have you tried it? It’s so simple and delicious. My kids love to help make it. One of their jobs is to put the containers out to catch the snow!  Don’t worry they were only out there for a couple minutes in the cold!  What...

I received free products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty.  The opinions expressed here are my own. Kids love video games.  However, we know that sitting around staring at a screen playing video games as a kid starts some bad habits that can carry into the teen years adulthood.  “Just one more level mom!”  How...
