Henry HuggleMonster from @DisneyReads

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

Every now and then we spot a new show on TV and stop to check it out.  That was what recently happened when we spotted Henry Hugglemonster on Disney Junior.  Broxton and I though it was a cute and entertaining show, with adorable little monsters.  He is a bit too old for this show now, but it was still cute to watch and learn about a new character.  I thought it was great to introduce a cute and friendly monster to get kids to realize that monsters are nothing to be afraid of.  These two cute books both come with stickers, so you know that is an added bonus for any kids!  
I would totally get the Welcome to Roarsville first though.  It gives a tour of the town and has several words to help identify the things in the book.  Think site words type- like it will say stand, mirror, flashlight and things like that (it also tells a story about his little town too!)  Henry Loves Beckett is a story about Henry and his friends throwing a party for his pet's birthday!  Both are cute and are sure to make any Henry Hugglemonster fan happy.  

Henry and his big sister, Summer, team up to throw their monsterdog, Beckett, the most roarsome birthday party ever! But something strange is happening: all of the pets’ noisy toys are disappearing. When Henry investigates the mystery, he finds a fuzzlebird who wants peace and quiet for her newborn baby. Luckily, Hugglemonsters always do the right thing, and Henry finds a solution to make his furred, feathered, and monster friends happy, and still have the best pet party ever!


Roarrrr! Welcome to the world of Henry Hugglemonster! Henry is a friendly monster who lives with his loving family in Roarsville. Play Huggleball on the field, hike to the top of Mt. Roarsmore, and meet all of Henry’s enormous, glowing, spiky, and furry monster friends in this exciting, adventure-filled storybook with stickers!

Alert! Stocking Stuffer Alert! @InRoadToys

Filling stockings are always a toughie for me... I like fun things in them, but not candy.  At Broxton's school they are each to bring in enough items for the kids in the class and it can be anything from pencils to erasers, candy to trinkets or toys... Whatever they want to bring... That got me to thinking about what would be fun stuff to add to Broxton's stocking at the house...   (I would not mind jewelry in mine, but don't think Santa is buying for me this year! Ha! Ha! Ha!)  I noticed something he has been playing with way more than normal lately and then it hit me... This would be an AWESOME stocking stuffer for someone!

Have you heard of InRoad Toys?  They make a play tape that is so much fun and it is a great thing to have around.  It is a roll of tape that looks like a road. (They have black, purple and orange.)  They also add to their inventory with trolley tracks, as well as railroad tracks! Broxton has the black road tape.  He has been having a blast playing with it. The best part is that he can make his tracks himself.  He just grabs the roll and makes the roads where and how he wants it. It works perfect on carpet as well as hard floor.  We even packed it for a trip and he was able to use it in the hotel at night before bedtime!  

PlayTape is:

  • Ideal for creating roads for playing with die-cast toy cars, trains, etc.
  • Sticks to any flat surface
  • Easy-tear, made of paper, no scissors required
  • Repositionable – mistake proof!
  • Easy removal, leaves no residue
  • Ideal for children of all ages 3+, including adult hobbyists
  • Imagination-centric, with no batteries, no electronics, and no screens
  • Easily stored and transported. Take fun everywhere!
  • Toxin-free, disposable, and recyclable
  • Made in the USA
  • U.S. Patent Pending

If you are looking for a book to give this year, you might be interested in At Home With Madame Chic.  This book is a book about "becoming a connoisseur of daily life." I have tried reading it, but to be honest, I have had a hard time getting in to it. I am more into fiction these days and this just does not flow like that.  This book is broken down into sections and each section has a great deal of information.  From cleaning schedules to chic houseplants, making your workplace chic to enjoying afternoon tea. (There is even a breakdown of tea for you to figure out what might be best for you!)
I know once I am in the mood, I will enjoy this - you don't have to sit and read it all at once, just leisurely flip through it... but as I said, its been fiction or nothing for me lately.  I can't even get into magazines these days!   

Approach life at home the Madame Chic way: a beautiful, illustrated toolbox of tips and ideas for organizing, entertaining, and savoring a stylish life.
When she arrived at Madame Chic’s Parisian apartment as a foreign exchange student, Jennifer Scott was a casual California girl who thought sweatpants were appropriate street attire. Madame Chic took Jennifer under her wing and tutored her in the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living.
Years later, Jennifer was back in California with a husband, two young daughters, a dog, and her first home. Every day she confronted mundane duties like folding laundry and unloading the dishwasher, and she began to think about Madame Chic’s home—how the breakfast table was set beautifully the night before, the music that always played in the background, the calm of Madame and Monsieur Chic’s ritual cocktail hour together. Jennifer wanted that life. She decided to see what would happen if she didn’t perform her chores impatiently or mindlessly, if, instead, she could live like Madame Chic.
At Home with Madame Chic reveals the secrets to having a happy, fulfilling, and passionate life at home. Jennifer explains the morning send-off need not be chaotic, it’s possible to look stylish with minimal time and effort, a little forethought makes it possible to serve a home-cooked dinner every night, and details like music and scented candles can set the tone for the whole family’s evening. Organized by the pleasures that can be found throughout the day, this charming, helpful book is full of ideas, playlists, recipes, beauty routines, and advice that can turn an irritating day into an enjoyable experience. 

Dinner and a Show? #MakingMemories @MedievalTimes

If you are looking for a one of a kind experience, you need to check to see if there is a Medieval Times near you. We have been to them a few times and it is always a night to remember!  As I was trying to come up with a few "outside the box" gift idea's this year, it hit me!  Medieval Times would be AWESOME!  Not only do you get dinner... but you get a show to remember!  
I contacted Medieval Times to see if we might be able to work together (they said yes!) and now I get to share our latest trip with you!   For us, we went to the Atlanta, Georgia location.  It is located at one of our malls and when you pull up, you know you have made it!  They have the outside near their location resemble a giant castle!
We went inside to get our tickets (that is also where you get your "color" to know which knight you will be cheering for that evening.)  While waiting, the music started and then next thing you knew, their staff was out - front and center - of their location. Broxton snuck into the line for a quick photo before they all headed back inside!  
Once you get your crown (that shows your color for the night) you have a photo opportunity at the entrance. They put the photos on display and you are more than welcome to purchase one, but it is not required and they don't pressure you into doing so. (I LOVE that.)  They have a few places inside that are great area's if you want to take your own photo and of course I could not pass up a chance to actually get a photo of Broxton and I!  Yes, I was there!  There is proof!!!!!   

 While waiting for the show to start, you have time to see the different exhibits they have.  They also have an area for you to purchase souvenirs if you are in the mood for that.    
You can pay for additional packages, if you choose to do so and of course we had to have Broxton "knighted" while we were there.  He loved it and his face was worth a million dollars!   The reason for his knighting?  Doing good in school!   
Once we got inside, we were ready for the show!  Side note, you need to remember that they do not have silverware... It is all "eat with your fingers" food and that was fine by us.  The food was delicious and we actually want to try and make the potato they serve!    
 As the show starts, they have a few different acts that take place.  Broxton was mesmerized the whole time and I was thrilled that I was able to catch his expression of joy!  
 We were in the blue section, meaning we got to yell and scream for the blue knight and all that he did.  The knights are all against each other (as well as East versus West) and it is a battle to the end.  From riding horses and fighting to actually fighting on the ground, it was exciting from the start to the end!  
 At one point, Broxton was a bit concerned over their safety so I was happy to tell him it was okay and that he could actually see all of the knights after the show to know that they were all fine.  He was happy with that and made it a point to get his picture taken with each individual knight, as well as the bad guy and even the King and the Princess!   
We were lucky that our knight was such a nice kid.  He was very friendly and was eager to chat with Broxton and make him feel special, not ignore him just because he was a kid !  We had a great time and that was all Broxton was able to talk about!  (He even had to tell his whole baseball team that he had been knighted the night before!)
If you are looking to make a great memory, why not treat the family to a night at Medieval Times?  They have several locations and from what I have heard, they do great giveaways on their facebook site!
Make sure to check them out!

Not sure about your budget, but around here, we can not go jet setting all over the world.  Don't get me wrong, we would LOVE to do so, but it just isn't going to happen any time soon.  Broxton tells me that he wants to go to England to visit his Uncle, then he says he wants to go here, there and every where else...  but that just isn't going to work.  What do we do instead?  We look online and check out photos and read about the different places... but now we can do something even more fun!   We received a Children's Activity Atlas for review and let me tell you... this joker is just what we needed!  
This book is a hard back book that is filled with fun things inside.
Your book comes with a passport for you to fill out as you "travel" the world.  You complete "quizzes" on the different area's and then you earn your visa sticker!   
You also have 6 postcards to fill out as you visit the area and you also have additional stickers to place on the different maps as you learn about each place.
This is so much more than just a book... and so much more than just a sticker book...
It is a book full of adventure and exploration just waiting to happen!   


Young explorers: grab your ticket to a world of fun! Featuring 12 fully illustrated maps, this atlas is jam-packed with information about the different continents and each region's wildlife, food, architecture, and culture. The journey continues with more than 250 reusable stickers, eight perforated postcards, and a pocket-size passport with quizzes and cool facts. Curious kids will dream about their adventures to come.

The Healthy Baby Butter #Lavanila

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.


Pampering is not just for your baby.  Not to mention that your "baby" doesn't stop being your baby when it reaches a certain age.  Even though Broxton is now 5, I still baby his skin as if he was a newborn.  I see nothing wrong with that and I love how his skin feels!  
We were sent The Healthy Baby Butter from Lavanila and it has been awesome putting it on Broxton and not having him freak out that it burns his skin (eczema) or that it is too cold / hot or whatever issue he wants the lotion to have.  We have used it numerous times and each time he greets it with a smile and that is what a mama wants.  This is one of the lotions he uses after bath time.  I will comment on the fact that I do wish it had a stronger scent... I know most people are not fans of scented lotion on little ones, but I love Shea butter... and I love Cocoa butter, so I wish they had a stronger scent in this lotion.  It works out well for us though, so I can not be upset if that is my only complaint, right?  This would make a great addition for anyone's stocking, or in an array of pampering products!  


This 100% natural body butter contains 30 essential vitamins and minerals that support the health and development of delicate baby skin.  Pure Shea and Cocoa Butters blend with nourishing Calendula and Noni Juice for ultra-rich hydration that soothes redness and protects against dryness. Easily absorbed, it comforts and softens immediately.

Classic Toy Crazes #JingleInsiders

Since I just shared how we watched the movie, Jingle All the Way 2 the other day, I wanted to share with you a couple commercials of other toys that were big hits.  (In Jingle All the Way 2, they are on the news talking about a bear that is "the toy of the season"  remember what the toy was back when you were younger????? )  

For my age, it was all about the Cabbage Patch Dolls!   I had a couple of them and even got to go to "Babyland General Hospital" where they are "born."



After my toy days were over, the hit was Tickle Me Elmo.  I don't remember any family needing this one, but I do remember hearing all about the way people were going crazy trying to get it...  One of my moms friends was determined to get one for her kid, now that I think about it, I don't remember if she succeeded or not... 




What was a big toy in the past you remember?  Or what is a hit toy on the list this year?

Our house has been hit with the sickies!  It started off that Broxton had a runny nose.  No big deal... Then, I got sick...  I got over mine, but then Broxton came home sick again.  (After a trip to the doctor, because I could have sworn it was the flu, we learned he just has a nasty cough and needs rest, fluids, snuggles, and over the counter medicine.)  
This past weekend, we were sent a goodie box full of excitement to totally get us in the Christmas mood and although we weren't feeling great health wise, we totally had huge smiles on our faces as we opened our wonderful treat box!   
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that we treated our neighbors to gift bags with Jingle All the Way 2 treats!   Wonder what was in there?
Cute Jingle All the Way 2 hot chocolate mugs, adorable mustache straws (Broxton thinks those are the coolest things ever!), cookie cutters, hot chocolate, Santa hats and fun activity sheets!  I have added a couple of the sheets for your enjoyment...  I know I used to LOVE Madlibs as a kid, so you can do one of those, as well as write a letter to Santa!   
 




As for the movie, of course, we might not have been festive and up for a party, but we sure enough watched the movie!  I think Larry the Cable Guy is hilarious anyways, so I thought this was a cute movie.  In Jingle All the Way 2, we have Larry as a daddy and he feels he is in competition with his daughters new step-father to see who can be the best daddy.  Operation "Who's your daddy" happens and we see that both dads will not stop at whatever it takes to make sure the little girl, Noel, has the best Christmas ever!   We were laughing through out the whole movie!
This would be a great movie to make a movie night as we get closer to Christmas!
Make some cookies, drink some hot chocolate and enjoy  a fun night in, making memories!

FTC Compliant Review Policy:
The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 
The thrilling second chapter of the epic HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON trilogy returns to the fantastical world of the heroic Viking Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless. The inseparable duo must protect the peace and save the future of men and dragons from the power-hungry Drago.

I know I shared that we saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 for movie night not too long ago, but I wanted to come back to it again for a minute... I know people are trying to get last minute gift ideas together and what better than a movie night with the family?  I have to say, Broxton wasn't huge into the first one, but for some reason, he really took to this one and was totally in it from the start...  He has even asked to watch it a few more times and even shared it with our neighbors for their kids to enjoy it during the Thanksgiving Break!  


If you are looking for another gift, make sure you think about How to Train Your Dragons 2. They even have toys that go with the movie, if you wanted to make a gift pack for the recipient.

I know that Frozen is still a popular theme right now and I have a book that you must get to go under your tree this year!   It is the Frozen Sing Along Storybook!  This is a hardback book that has perfect illustrations of the story and at the end you get a special treat!   You get the lyrics to 3 of the popular frozen songs!  The songs they included?  
Let It Go - Do You Want To Build a Snowman - For the First Time in Forever. 
Broxton laughs when I try singing for him, but hey... I love it, so he enjoys it!   They even include a CD with the instrumental versions of the songs!   Perfect for Karaoke night!
This is sure to be a hit this year, so make sure you grab a copy now !  
This book is written for the 6-8 year old age range, but there is no judgement if you are in your 30's and enjoy it as well!   At least not from me anyways!

Stocking Stuffer Idea - Daniel Tigers Neighborhood #MakingMyList

When I was young, I went to a day care.  I remember that every day, they would get us ready for when our parents would pick us up.  We would all sit and watch a couple kid friendly shows, they would wash our hands and face (day care was rough... we played all the time OUTSIDE!)  fix our hair and then we would go home...   One of the shows we watched?  Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
I loved it as a kid and when I saw that they had sort of "remade" Mister Rogers show, I was THRILLED!!!!   Granted, it is geared for the preschool age, but every now and then I still catch Broxton watching it.  
The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.
The show I am talking about?  Daniel Tigers Neighborhood!
This cartoon show follows Daniel Tiger, son of Daniel Striped Tiger from Mister Rogers Neighborhood.  There are several other characters you will recognize as sons / daughters / nephews of the original Mister Rogers Show.  If you have a preschooler on your list, grab this and be the hit of the holidays!!!!
The first TV series inspired by the iconic, award-winning MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, from The Fred Rogers Company, stars 4-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites young viewers into his world, giving them a kid’s-eye view of his life. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers ages 2-4 and their families learn the fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning. One of the key ingredients that sets the series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy, musical strategies that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents will both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, which debuted in September 2012, airs Monday-Friday on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

“I Love You, Mom”
Daniel wants to surprise Mom Tiger with her favorite banana bread because he knows how much she likes it – and “making something is one way to say I love you.” He and Dad go to Baker Aker’s Bakery, where they learn about the bread-making process. They return home to surprise Mom and she happily shares the banana bread gift with them too!

“Thank You, Grandpere Tiger!”
Grandpere Tiger comes to visit, but Daniel is sad that Grandpere can’t stay for the special “Thank You Day” celebration later that day. Daniel learns to be thankful for the time they DO have together, and is then surprised when Grandpere appears at the celebration after all!

“Neighborhood Thank You Day”
It’s Thank You Day in the Neighborhood – a special celebration when each of the neighbors puts a note in the “Thank You Tree” as a way to say thank you to one another. Daniel has trouble deciding who of his neighbors he wants to thank with his note. The episode ends with a Thank You Day feast with all the neighbors celebrating together.        

“Katerina’s Costume”

Need a Stocking Stuffer? Try out @CapriClear

There is no point in trying to hide the fact that I know nothing about how eczema feels... All I know is that when Broxton starts to have a flare up, it is painful to see it on him... and with some lotions / potions, it makes him cry and yell that it is burning him.  I have no clue, so I just try to see what works the best for him.  During the summer, it isn't really that bad anymore, but I do notice that I lotion him up all the time...   I try to do so in the winter too, but he is so busy all the time, that he doesn't want to slow down to let me try and prevent it.  We were recently sent a new (to us) product to try and it has been a hit around here!   It is CapriClear and it is a coconut oil.  I love it because I don't notice any scent... and it is super easy to apply!  It comes in a spray bottle... just spray it on him, rub it in and he is off playing again!   He loves it because it makes his skin feel good!  Happy boy, happy mama!  
If you have dry skin ---  or know someone that has eczema, why not buy this and give it a try?  (Makes a great "stocking stuffer!")  

CapriClear

Made with 100% fractionated coconut oil, this all-natural, paraben-free treatment combats dry, flaky, irritated skin, making it soft and silky.  Conceived by a dermatologist, fragrance-free CapriClear is an exceptionally pure, gentle and effective single-ingredient solution for even the most sensitive skin.  It also has the eczema seal of approval and is safe for the entire family.  Plus, it results in soft, silky skin.
