Can you believe it is ALMOST Halloween?  Seriously, the days seem to go by quicker and quicker. (Maybe having 2 "babies" instead of just 1 adds to it, I am guessing!)  I don't know if you have Halloween traditions as far as dinner, but we all need to eat beforehand, if not... candy will really want to be eaten that night and we all know that as tasty as it is, candy for a meal is not the way to go.  Maybe you cook something, maybe you pick up...  How about grabbing a sack of Krystals to feed the crew before the adventurous night out???
To help get you into the Halloween spirit, Krystals is offering one lucky reader a Halloween pack.  This pack includes: a Halloween basket  filled with candy, Krystal pumpkin stenci…

Football season is in full swing around here.  I am a fan of college ball, Go Dawgs!  Marc, on the other hand, is a fan of sports in general.  He loves his LSU Tigers, but he also is a fan of the NFL as well.  His team?  Its a toss up.  He likes the 49ers and the Saints.  We were given the opportunity to review a NFL Deluxe Youth Football Uniform Set from Franklin Sports and I asked Broxton which team he wanted to check out... He opted for the Niners (I know that made Marc's family out in Cali happy!)  So we went with that option for him.   Image Credit - Franklin Sports Included is an official home team jersey, team helmet with authentic logo and team colors and team pants that will have them looking ready to take the fie…

I am not a hippie at all, but I do think that VW Vans are super cute. I think I could have had a good time with the colors and all of the hippie time, but anyways.  I was excited to review the book, This Old Van by Kim Norman.  Please tell me that I am not the only one that started singing THIS OLD MAN as soon as I read the words...  
If you are like me and the This Old Man song popped in your head when you read the title of the book, you might be like me and have a hard time READING the book.  I tried and tried, but every time I did, it came out as a song!   

Here is one part of the book:Thisoldvan, she passed one, 
shining in the rising sun.

With a click clack rattle rack,
ready for some fun,

Image - Amazon  Oh My Goodness!!!   We received the CUTEST book for Savannah's library!   Although I am a bulldog fan and hate the gators (little college football for you)  I am loving this cute little gator named Dozi.
In Dozi the Alligator Finds a Family, we meet a cute little gator named Dozi.  Dozi lives away from people and the hustle and bustle of human life, but one day, curiosity gets the best of Dozi and the next thing we know, Dozi is on a journey closer to civilization!
Read the book to see what happens when Dozi finds a family and the cute bond of friendship that is formed over a road trip!  Dozi the Alligator is going to be a series, so I can not wait to see what happens next!

A series of books that we all seem to enjoy are the books from Ripley's Believe It or Not! They are great for all ages and for both boys and girls.  We have been fortunate to review a few of them and we have also bought many through the years.  In fact, when my mom came to visit last, she brought a copy of one of them for her to look through on the road trip up to see us.
A thing I enjoy about the Ripley's books is that you don't have to "read" it like a regular book.  You can flip and read a section or two, or even a paragraph or two at a time.  There is no particular order and to be honest, if you want to, you can just look at the pictures.  Of course, once you see the pictures, you want to read to se…
