Halloween is over, so I can go ahead and start talking about Christmas, right? If you know someone who loves to cook with their kids... or if you know someone who has a kid that wants to cook with them (that is more our case, Broxton always wants to help... but he is wanting to use the knives and what not, like he is doing Hibachi!)
We were sent the book, 4 Ingredients Kids for review and I am excited that this is all easy enough items that Broxton just might get his wish to help me more sooner than we thought!  
This book includes:
Introduction
What's 4 Brekky? Snack Attack What's 4 Lunch? What's 4 Dinner? Homemade Takeout What's 4 Dessert? Party Time
I loved the way they started this book.. The introduction …

If you are looking for a hilarious book, Sports Illustrated for Kids - Top Dogs is just the ticket!!!  This book had me laughing as soon as I saw the cover and on each page, I caught myself grinning... 
This book has sports facts, but it is mixed in with dog loving information to...  Babe Ruff?  Michael Stray-han?   It is so funny... and since Broxton wants a dog... (and we aren't getting one any time soon,) this is the closest to it... Top Dogs also includes: ·Best in Show: From legendary golfer Arnold Palmeranian, to Hockey star Wayne Fetchzky, these pups stand as the all-time great [Danes] in their sport.
·Underdogs: Boston College phenom QB Pug Flutie and NBA short-man Nate Slobberson have proven they can still hang in th…

We love pizza in our house and never really need an excuse to eat it... 
Imagine my surprise when I found out that October was National Pizza Month!!! I have to admit, I do not think in all my years of living that I have ever made a pizza at home.   We normally just buy one and go on about our business.  Luckily for me, we had a chance to review the pizza sauce from Classico ( We LOVE their pasta sauce!)  so what better day to make a pizza than today?!


First up, huge thanks to Classico for the great box full of goodies for us:
The highlight of this box was the pizza sauce assortment that we were sent.  There was the traditional pizza sauce, then they also included the Fire Roasted Pizza Sauce and their not yet released White Pi…

Yesterday, I shared that I wanted to do a book countdown for Christmas (credit goes to wherever I saw it online to start with, I can not remember now where it was)
The book yesterday was also from Time for Kids...  It was X Why Z ...   (geared for kids 4-6 years old, although I enjoyed reading it myself... I always knew I was a kid at heart!)
Today, Time for Kids - Big Book of Why : Crazy, Cool and Outrageous. I can not seem to seem to find an age on this one, so I am not sure what age it is geared to.
All I do know is that it is pretty crazy, cool and outrageous!!!!  Contents:
Human Body - Body Parts, Body Systems, Senses, Emotions, Gross Stuff, Diseases
Animals - In the Wild, Reptiles, Scary!, Birds, Sea Life, Friendly!, Insect…

I will be the first to admit that I am spoiled by technology...  Just the other day, I was talking to someone about how much I depend on it... 
From a calculator to help me with math to my computer (or phone) to spell check words for me...  I know it is embarrassing and I honestly wonder what I am going to do when Broxton starts school... It honestly scares me... I just learned the other day that they have a whole new way of teaching math... a way I have no clue about and a way that says the thought process that I was taught is TOTALLY WRONG.   Not to mention that my friend says they changed the name of a shape.  I think she said it was the diamond that was no longer... but it is now known as something totally different... How …

Hope it isn't too soon to start posting Christmas things...   Because...   I love Christmas! There, I said it...  I know, Halloween hasn't happened yet, but you know... Halloween and  Thanksgiving, they just fly by and then the next thing you know...
CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE!!!!
You know, there are only 8 more Wednesdays until the Big One... 

Anyways, I want to try and have traditions and make wonderful memories with all the boys...  So, a couple years ago, I thought it would be awesome to start a family ornament each year...  I normally wrap it up as a family gift and then they get all excited when I unwrap it and they see it is the newest one...  But this year, since we have a new house and we will be making new memories…

With all the social websites these days, I am not sure where I saw it first...  Facebook?  Pinterest?  Blog?  A random website?  
Anyways, I saw where parents were taking books...  YES BOOKS  and wrapping them up...  Then, they did a countdown to Christmas and each night they let the kids unwrap a book.   I love this idea... you know how much we love books here.. I have now decided that I want to try this with Broxton this year... and I think it will be fun with some of the books to have when his brothers are here!  
I will say, I have not decided if I am going to go with 25 books or just 12...   
I also have not decided the order of the books yet, so I am just going to share the books that will be included...  not all are Christma…
