If you are looking for a one of a kid gift, look at one of the latest books we have received :  God's Love For You.   I have to admit, I was not really sure what to expect, with it being a "Bible Storybook" with stories from around the world, but I was excited to see what was behind that brightly colored cover!

As soon as I opened the hardcover, I knew I was in for something new... 
The first two opening pages had pictures of people from around the world... 
Then, you get to the Contents section and see that it too is divided up on the Old Testament and the New Testament.    There is then a letter to Parents and then the stories start.
I absolutely LOVE that the stories are written so that kids of all ages can understand (the target age is …

It is no secret - I love books.  I just might be the last one holding out with hard copy books, but I will do it as long as I can...  I just love the feel of them... and the memories of them too!  Whenever my mom gives me a book, she writes a message in them for me and I love them... We get a good amount of books and I love being able to share such a wide variety of topics with him...   The latest book we were sent?

Synopsis : 
James Gandolfini, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Catherine Keener shine in this heartwarming comedy that A.O. Scott of The New York Times calls “a small miracle of a movie.” Divorced mom Eva (Louis-Dreyfus) may be falling for Albert (Gandolfini), a sweet, funny, like-minded divorcé. But as their relationship blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Keener), who’s always complaining about her ex-husband. When Eva realizes that Albert is the target of Marianne’s rants, she begins to question her own perceptions about first impressions and second chances.


I really enjoyed this movie... I like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and I after seeing this, I am a fan of James Gandolfini... (So sad he passed and I am just learning of his works!)
I also really like the lady that p…

I was recently informed of a circus that was headed our way... It was the Big Apple Circus and it was literally "Under the Big Top."
I was excited to take Broxton, as I have decided that this year is going to be more about #MakingMemories. I thought he would have a great time and I wanted to learn more about this particular circus.
First up, I was VERY aggravated on the way there. I went to their website and hit the link to get directions...  I followed them and ended up at the location... to find the parking lot closed and a professional sign (about the size of a poster board) telling me the ADDRESS of the circus location.  Granted, there was a printed map in there, but how was I as the driver with only a 4 year old, supposed to jump out…

With so much to do for Valentines Day...  
You can go out and spend a bunch of time and money, trying to go out to dinner and all that fancy stuff...
Or, you can make it special and more intimate by having a movie night at home (and maybe dinner another night when it isn't so hectic.)    Just in time for Valentines, there are several new movies that are being released on February 11th....
Head on out and grab one (or more) and make it a movie night!!!!
