GIVEAWAY EXTENDED!!!!!!
NOW YOU HAVE UNTIL DECEMBER 31ST AT MIDNIGHT TO ENTER!!!!
GET YOUR ENTRIES IN!!!!

Recently I was asked to review photos from iCaughtSanta.com. Basically what it is, is a site that allows you to put in your photo and select a Santa pose to put in your photo. I was a bit unsure....I wasn't sure how good it would look...how real....how easy it would be, etc. What I found though was that you can make it look very real by "sizing" Santa to your picture which is VERY easy, and the whole process was extremely easy and very quick! I was VERY happy with the outcome.

You can check it out for yourself atiCaughtSanta.com

Imagine the look of wonder and surprise when a child receives a photo of Santa caught in
their house. That is what enticed me! My two older boys are starting to doubt the existence. And yes...I know that someday they will know the truth...but it is FUN to believe! I still even believe. Why can't God have a Santa to make …

My winnings since May!

Image
I meant to start posting these as soon as I started winning...but time got away from me....so I am going to back post from May to now on my winnings throughout blog land. From here on out though, I would like to post monthly. Why am I posting about the thing I am winning? Am I gloating?? NO! Absolutely not! BUT...I want you to see how FUN, how EASY, and how very little time it takes to win a ton of free things for you and your family! My Christmas has been pretty well taken care of thanks to my blog entries! I have had to spend very little money this year which has been a HUGE blessing! I don't like to give the kids, or even me, things that have been won right away....I don't want them to be spoiled. Some of the things...like the vaccuum...were badly needed so I used them right away, but most of the things I have kept in my gift cabinet and I am giving them to the kids...or myself...or someone else special on the holidays or their birthdays, etc. So here is the lowdown:

My Special Mom Bag review! Item #4

Image
For info on this Special Mom Bag stuff go here, here and here! Please pass these posts on to others you know to get my followers up there...then maybe I can start GIVING more away instead of JUST reviewing them......

Item #4...then I have to go to bed...items number 5, 6 and 7 will have to wait!!! Sorry! I'm getting sleepy...so...item #4...Bella B Tummy to Toes Cooling Leg and Foot Cream! Yippee!!
Everytime I was pregnant, I struggled with my legs hurting...and I always wanted to find something that would help them. I did use a Mary Kay item for awhile, but it had Eucalypus smell in it, and I couldn't stomach it thanks to my pregnancy. I HAVE sampled this and I think it is great! It works like a charm. I don't have pregnant aches in my legs and feet right now, but I do have weather changing aches in my legs and feet and this really helped with those aches and pains. It has several organic moisturizers to help penetrate deep into your legs to help wtih the dry skin too.…

My Special Mom Bag review! Item #3

Image
For info on this "mom" bag review...check out my earlier posts here and here!
Now for item #3! The Baby K'tan! Now...I did not actually receive this product to review...but I DID receive an informational packet on it, and a Baby K'tan hat. I also have known people that have had Baby K'tan's...or a knock off brand. Let me just say this first off...if you can figure it out...it looks FANTASTIC! I for one am not good at figuring things like that out. I couldn't even figure out the one that they lay in! Also...it makes me nervous to have them just hanging in there without clips and buckles. Just me. It looks AWESOME though. If I had a newborn and could get over my fears, I would definitely have to try it! The hat they sent is made out of the same material and it is a VERY well made, soft, sturdy hat. The material is very durable...that part would not worry me at all...in fact, it is such a soft material, I wouldn't mind being swaddled in it! This looks lik…

My Special Mom Bag review! Item #2

Image
For more info go to my #1 post here. Before I go on...I just want to say that some of these items I might be able to have giveaways with if I had over 100 followers...so who do you know who would love to follow a quirky, not so busy blog???? Send them over!!!

Okay....Item #2: Another favorite of mine....the Halo SleepSack Swaddle. I received one of these with my 4th son. It was a knock off brand though...this is the ACTUAL Halo SleepSack. Now...I haven't tried it because I no longer have a newborn...but let me say about the concept...it is fabulous. I loved the one I had for my son. I wasn't concerned about suffocation because there were no blankets in his crib and I wasn't concerned that he would be too warm or too cold. The Halo SleepSack though is MUCH softer and more than likely more durable then my knock off brand was. It feels fabulous! This one has the swaddle aspect to it too...whereas mine did not. So basically when baby is really little...they like to be swaddled.…

My Special Mom Bag review! Item #1

Image
Recently I received a "Mom" bag full of goodies to review. Okay...not so recently. Sorry...it has been sitting by my desk now probably for a couple months. It has been a busy couple of months though...in my defense. Anyway...better late then never...right? So I thought I would take this time before midnight...while the house is quiet and the blizzard is still going strong outside, to do some reviewing. I have read up on and/or tried the products already...I just haven't had the time to actually write the review yet. Anyway....I received 7 items in the bag. Yeah me! So there will be 7 posts...why? Its just easier with the texts and the pictures...yadda, yadda, yadda....so here goes!

Item number 1: My personal favorite...the Puddle Jumper Life Jacket! WOW! I have to say...I LOVE this item! This adjustable, comfortable life jacket features buckle snaps in the back, fits kids 30-50 pounds and is US Coast Guard Approved. It is made by Stearns...The Life Jacket Experts. It …

"Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" Review

Image
I was asked to review an episode of NBC's "Community," a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. It is first showing TONIGHT, Thursday the 9th on NBC.

Let me first tell you a little bit about this particular episode:

At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group that eventually learns more about themselves than their course work.
Also among the series stars who comprise the group are: comedy legend Chevy Chase ("Chuck") as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs ("The Book of Daniel") as Britta, the 20-something dropout with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown ("Rules of Engagement") as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcée; Danny Pudi ("Greek") as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie (&q…

Paperspring review

Hi all! I know I have done a review on Paperspring before...but I feel so strongly about their product that I thought I would let you all know again! They have a ton of options for your photo needs...and even non-photo needs. They sent me some samples of their cards and the paper that they are printed on is very solid, sturdy and professional looking. Their newest cards also are Paperlink-enabled...which means you can turn to the back of the card to view bonus material...meaning you can scan the "widget" with the free Paperlinks iPhone app or visit paperspring.com and enter a special code. I don't have an iPhone, so I went to the website www.paperspring.com and entered the special code that was on the back of the sample card. This particular sample card was a birth announcement. It simply said that the child was born and his "stats". When I put the code in at the website though it went WAY into more detail. It was very neat...like having a little diary…

GiveBack & Give Thanks During The Holidays

Image
I recently had the opportunity to review the GiveBack It's your Foundation Website. I wasn't really sure what to expect at first, but I was pleasantly surprised. Celebrities like Serena Williams and Oprah Winfrey support it and use it.

What is GiveBack?
*Start your own personal foundation, help your favorite charities.
*Earn money for your foundation automatically by shopping online.
*100% of GiveBack donations go to the charities you support.

So basically, you make your own foundation to help the charities that you love. Then when you shop online, you will get money to put towards those charities. When you sign up...which is free....you will automatically get $5 in your account. Just to see what would happen, I signed up and I DID get the $5 in my account. I then made a personal foundation and donated my $5 to MOPs International. You can donate it to anywhere...when you choose your charities you can put in your state and city and support something locally, or anything nationwide. …

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!

Primrose Schools & Dr. Z Encourage Families to Give Back

We all want our children to grow up to be compassionate adults who want to help others. That's why we're always on the lookout for good ways to encourage character and development. Our good friends at Primrose Schools, the leader in educational childcare, recommend that parents make an effort to introduce volunteerism at a young age.

That's why Dr. Mary Zurn, Vice President of Education for Primrose, is offering parents the four easy steps outlined below to start their children on a path to meaningful volunteerism.

Here are 4 Steps to getting your family interested in volunteering:

Step 1: Clarify your personal goals and motives for wanting to include your child in volunteer activities. Volunteering is a wonderful way to a share your values with your child. Pick a cause that is meaningful to you and your family rather than one that is simply convenient.

Step 2: Explain the importance of volunteerism and the contribution volunteers can make. A child's favorite question is &…

...Featuring Norah Jones.....CD Review

Image
*Myreview is MY personal opinion and I have been entered to win a gift card through One2One Network by participating.*

_____________________________________________________________

...Featuring is an AMAZING collection of MULTI-Platinum, MULTI-Grammy Award winning siner's musical collaborations from the past DECADE! There are 18 songs on this album...and maybe ONE didn't do much for me...but the other 17 were incredibly AWESOME! The songs on this album include cool ameos, collaborations and duets with such legends as Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, OutKast and Foo Fighters to just name a few. The tracks on this album span Norah's whole career and REALLY show us what she can do! She is SO diverse. These songs are a mixture of jazz...country...hip hop...and rock. Not all at the same time...but you get my idea right? :-)

I have to say....I REALLY wasn't sure if I would like this CD...but BOY!! I was VERY PLEASANTLY surprised. I have listened to it DAILY since I re…

Mickey's Roadshow LIVE! Omaha, NE!!

Image
US Family Guide, recently gave me the opportunity to see Mickey's Roadshow Live! They offered me 4 tickets free of charge to review and blog about my experience at the show! Knowing that I have 4 children and if we made it a family event, I would need 2 more tickets, I e-mailed and asked how I might get 2 more tickets next to the 4...and how much extra that would cost me. I was TOTALLY okay paying for 2 tickets...I mean, I was getting 4 for free. The thought never even occured to me that they may give me 2 more tickets for free...but they did!!! I couldn't believe it! That is what I call a stand up organization! They REALLY catered to my individual needs and I am SO appreciative for that! Not only that but the tickets were fantastic! Floor tickets are always more expensive...but I can't say that I understand that....you can't see anything from the floor. I always get Jimmy Bob sitting in front of me with a big gallon cowboy hat on, so I can never see anything…

Simply Spray review!

Image
Simply Spray Fabric Paints are some GREAT paints!!! I had the opportunity to review these products and as a family we THOROUGHLY enjoyed using them. Now...we ARE amature artists....so our shirts are a bit...well...rusty looking, but we had a great time doing it and the kids are already asking when we can do more! I went to Hobby Lobby and just bought some plain white t-shirts. You can also get bulk t-shirts at Walmart or any other store. I watched all of the how to videos on the Simply Spray website and read all the how to literature before doing this. Angela has some really great video's and tutorials on her site! I really felt like I knew what I was doing when I got to the good part! So...one night, we set out some newspaper on the kitchen table...and one at a time, the kids laid their shirts down...told me what kind of deisgn they wanted and off they went! Cam and Jake tried to write on their shirts. It is a bit more difficult to do that and actually be able to READ wh…

Fresh Fruit Pie

Recently I was contacted by an Indie Production Studio that makes family films.
Their mission is to raise the bar of quality on family entertainment. They have created a video series that both parents and kids will love. It's called "Fresh Fruit Pie," and it's sort of like a family-friendly "Saturday Night Live."

They are holding an online premiere for "Fresh Fruit Pie" October 19-21. The entire film will be available for free live streaming for 48 hours. They feel that moms and dads will love a show like this because it fills a gap that's sorely missing: moral-driven entertainment that kids of today's generation find exciting.

KT Tunstall, Tiger Suit CD Review

Image
I was given the opportunity by One2One Network to review KT Tunstall's new album Tiger Suit which was in stores starting October 5th. Click on the links above for KT's website and also the album site! Tiger Suit is her third studio album and is just the beginning of a new musical adventure for her! I am at a loss for words on how to describe her music, so let me just share with you how One2One Network described it: "Organic instrumentations are blended with dance-friendly textures, the results of which she has dubbed, 'Nature Techno' to encapsulate the album's collision of raw, upfront rootsiness and sleek electronic textures." Honestly, that is THE best description of her music....or at least the music on this particular CD. Here are some more quick facts: * KT is a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, Scottish-born singer-songwriter

* Tiger Suit was released October 5th and her rollicking first single "Fade Like A Shadow" is a Top 20 hit at radio.

Just like turkey and all the trimmings, the kids' table is a holiday tradition where good times rule. This year, Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner are asking everyone to set a place at their "virtual kid's table" for a child in need.

Expressionery.com Review

Image
Expressionery.com recently sent me a product to review. It is a Melamine Personalized Plate.
I REALLY like the feel of it...it is lightweight, and very sturdy. I also love the design! I can't wait to use this for my next event...birthday party...shower...whatever!The ONLY problem I really see with it is it is not microwaveable. I LOVE to put food on a plate from tupperware left overs and "nuk" them. This would not work for this purpose. HOWEVER, given the design...I wouldn't use it as an everyday plate anyway...so would I really have the need to microwave it? Probably not....so that isn't really an issue. It IS dishwasher safe however, which is very nice...and will stay nice as long as no abrasive cleaners are used on it.All in all, I think it is a great product! I LOVE to have nice things when I have parties. Anything to make people feel more special about their special day!!!Check out Expressionery.com for more personalized things! Thie product will be…
