Kids Parties - Yay or Nay? #WordlessWednesday

Image
I get so frustrated that each year I have a party for Broxton/Savannah and send invitations out.  I would love to have everyone attend, but I know sometimes it just isn't their thing... What annoys me is that most parents don't even bother to RSVP.  I know it should not bother me, but it does.  I normally put my number on the invitation and put to call or text. I know I would much rather text people, so that option is there.   Most parents don't do parties anymore either and that makes me sad.  Honestly, I was getting worried maybe they just did not want to come to my kiddo's party, but then the few we have been invited to, we make it a point to go.  Normally when we get there, we are just one or two of the "friends" that come and there are many treat bags left over where you can tell more kids were invited.  I would just feel HORRIBLE if a child had a party and no friends came, that is why I make it a point to go if at all possible when we are invited.

Back with a #WordlessWednesday post! All about #LEGO

Image
It has been a while since I posted a Word-less/Word-full Wednesday post.  I know I share many pics on my Instagram, but thought I would share some over here.  Sorry if they are some you have seen before, I will try and get better at posting them more regularly here! 
If you don't follow me on INSTAGRAM, head on over and give it a "follow"  I will wait!





Since moving back down south, we have had to adjust to the limit of things to do around here.  In Atlanta there was always plenty of stores to go to, plenty of festivals, lots of friends and always an invite with something to do with the blog.  Now don't get me wrong, I love being close to my family.  It is nice that the kids get to see my parents so often and I would not trade that for anything... but it is still totally DIFFERENT than Atlanta. 
This is a picture of when the local art museum had a LEGO exhibit.  I thought this was one of the coolest pieces of work the artist had on display.  He had several that were bla…

Family Fun with The #Bumblebee Movie and #Hasbro Toys! #Ad #Giveaway

Image
Last week we had Spring Break and unfortunately we did not get to go anywhere.  I hate that, but I was able to make the most out of it... We had a fun day where we went to the Fun Park and played putt putt, bowled, played laser tag and even some arcade games.  Another night was family movie night and I was so happy to be able to show them BUMBLEBEE.  We have been John Cena fans for a while (thanks WWE!)  so it was already exciting not even mentioning the whole TRANSFORMERS part of it all. The last exciting thing we did?  We had a fun night playing with the toys that went with the movie that Hasbro has released!

Does @eczema_honey work? #review #ad

Image
If you have been around me before, you know that we have major issues with eczema at our house.  Broxton had it as a baby and outgrew it, thank goodness...but little miss Savannah?  Man, this girl has it rough!!!!  She has had a tough go with it off and on from when she was little.  It never really cleared up and was getting worse seeing her pediatrician, so I ended up taking her to a dermatologist because I thought it had to be something else if nothing was working.  Nope, it is eczema... she just has it REALLY bad and has SEVERE sensitive skin.  (Yes, we have changed detergents, watched food, used oils, tried a million different lotions and even had friends make different concoctions for her... nothing works.) We took her to an allergist when the dermatologist told us to do so and poor girl... she is allergic to everything (dirt, grass, trees, nuts, you name it) ...  Like, it would be best to have her in a bubble, but that is not fun... Friends and family always send me messages abo…

Blaze and the Monster Machines have never really been a favorite for Savannah, but let me tell you this...

Sixth DVD?! #ShimmerandShine: Flight of the Zahracorns #AD

Image
Hard to imagine Shimmer and Shine have their sixth DVD coming out... I feel at times like it was just yesterday when Broxton was invited to a party and that was the theme... but then I feel like it was a lifetime ago as well!   As much as Savannah is into unicorns now, I bet she will love this DVD!

Savannah has loved Paw Patrol since the first time she watched it... It is one show that big brother will sort of watch with her and not make a big deal out of watching a "kids show" these days!  I love that it is coming out as a 3-DVD set, perfect for a Valentines gift (if you give those instead of candy!)
