#HolidayGiftGuide Kicks off NOW - Christmas Classics

Image
You can't start off a Gift Guide without trying to get into the Holiday Spirit!
That is why, today, I am highlighting a little taste of Christmas for us all!


Today:
The Original Christmas Classics on Blu-Ray.

Up until last year, I had never seen the movie, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town."
I know, I know...
Marc saw it on and wanted Broxton and I to watch it.
It was rather cute, as we started a family tradition without really knowing it.
Think about it, it was our first Christmas as the 3 of us, since Marc was deployed Broxton's first Christmas...
I am glad that "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" is in this set, as we now have it to watch together every year!
Fred Astair is the voice of the Postman/Narrator. Mickey Rooney is the voice of Kris Kringle/Santa Claus. I love they way this is presented as the postman answers questions as they relate to Santa and we get to see the story in a whole different perspective.

This set also included Rudolph the Red-Nosed Rein…

Fun Time Inside?

Image
Broxton loves being outside...We have been trying to enjoy the most out of this nice weather, but we also try and find fun indoor activities as well!

I was so happy to receive a box of craft project products for us to explore with from craftprojectideas.com
Just look at the goodies that were in there:
There are so many things for us to do in there, I really need to invest in a decent sized box for our craft items!!!!

Besides loving the box of goodies, I also really like their site!
You can look at it and come up with different projects. They also have a section (coming soon) where you can put your child's age and the season you want to work on and they will help you with a project.
The other day we made a silly monster : Another day, we got the beads out that they sent us... We worked on our alphabet: Worked on our colors (and counting):
We even worked on our shapes for a bit:
(I love to hear Broxton say triangle) There are going to be more fun crafts we make, but this was just a sneak peak at…

Aloha Friday - Halloween

Image
It's Friday! I am back around for an Aloha Friday kind of weekend!!!!
Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
So, my question this week: What has everyone in your house decided to go as for Halloween?
My answer: I will go as myself, that is scary enough! :) Marc will be working, if not... I am going to beg him to go as a soldier, I know... Far stretch! LoL, that is why I am hopeful that he will "dress up" and go with us.. Broxton, well he is going as a boxer!!!! You can click here to see him ready to go!
Also, don't forget :
My Holiday Gift Guide Starts October 1st.

Let's Get Ready to Rumble!!! Costume Supercenter Review

Image
It is almost time for Halloween!
That being said, have you decided what you are going to be this year?
I used to dress up when I worked, but I didn't dress up last year. Last year, Broxton went as Elvis... I loved it and so did the few people that saw him.
This year, we wanted something more like his personality... After looking and looking, we thought that the Lil Champ Costume was perfect!
If you have visited here before, you might have seen the photo's of Broxton and daddy play boxing. It is their father / son bonding time and I love to watch the two of them! Broxton with his "mean face."
So, do you see why we decided to go with this? I started my search looking for sports costumes for kids. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was meant to be!!!!
This really is cute, as it seems to cover it all!
You get the muscle suit with the boxing shorts... It also comes with a "champion" belt (very lightweight, so no need to worry!) The gloves are red gloves with stuffin…

Fall Television - Recap

Image
So I said I was going to be blogging about premier week... Then, my computer decided that was not going to happen. For some reason, every single time I would get ON line, it would decide to kick me OFF line. Over and over again... Days upon days! Talk about frustrating.
That being said, I wanted to highlight on a couple that I did watch and get your feedback on any other ones....
Once again, I watched Two and a Half Men last night... Now, it is starting to make sense as to how Alan is going to be living there... I am not liking that Jake hasn't been around too much. He is just so dumb that it is funny at times... He makes me laugh a good amount, so I hope that they start to give him more lines. Bertha had me cracking up with her thoughts, as always!!! And the wife of Ashton Kutcher's character? I know her face, so I guess I need to google her...
Then there was 2 Broke Girls! That show is just too funny, but it wasn't as funny last night. I guess it can not be hysterical all the time... b…

@FyrFlyz Review and #Giveaway

Image
Want to know a really cool toy that I know is going to be a hit this year? Fyrflyz!!!!

Thanks to MomSelect, we were able to review them.So, what is Fyrflyz?
Well, basically... It is a light up toy on strings... This is us playing with it... We have not learned any tricks yet... There are 13 tricks to learn and they are for ages 8 and up. We didn't follow the 8 and up though... Broxton LOVED it.. Granted, the strings were too long for him to do tricks (maybe that was the 8 and up sign?)
But, we played... and Marc loved it, especially hearing the excitement in Broxton every time we started playing with it! Daddy showing Broxton how to hold it: Daddy and Broxton working together to get it spinning! See how this can be hours and hours of fun?!

One lucky winner is going to win a fyrflyz of their own... Question is, will you keep it for yourself or give it as a gift?
Mandatory Entry: Leave me a comment telling me who you would get this for. (Please leave email address if not visible in your profile.…
