30-Day Tylee's Dog Food Challenge for Kiah

Well, it has officially started!  Kiah is 6 days into a 30 day challenge on this new human-grade dog food from Tylee's.  
First let me get to delivery!   It was fast and it was packed in dry cool was that!   Super cool if you were my kids because their daddy did a cool science experiment with them right away!   :)  I know that was a side note but one I wanted to share.

So what is neat about this dog food? So many things, like Buy 1 Get 1 FREE with code "TYLEES" or even the fact that the ingredients might be healthier than what I may have eaten for the day which flax seed and chia seeds!  Or maybe just knowing that there is no fillers or that nothing comes from China! 

So here is a picture of the food. I have never served my dog food that looked more like human food.  The fact that it has the green, yellow, orange color is pretty awesome.  The next thing that caught my attention was the smell, it had a very sweet smell.
What did Kiah think?  Well, she gets two cups in the morning and a cup later in the evening and she eats every bit within minutes!   She is being so spoiled on this food since it is warmed up and such high quality.   It has only been a few days so I haven't noticed much besides her begging for more food... I might have to increase from 3 cups to a little bit more???   I just think she loves it but I used to give her a little bit more with dry food.  I have been happy that her system adjusted very nicely from changing her diet not bathroom emergencies or any other ill effects! Once I get further along in the 30-day trial I will keep you posted!

Lily Girl Music Box

First Precious Moments- the Lily Girl Music Box 

I remember growing up I had a friend who had so many Precious Moments collectibles.   It is safe to say I was a bit jealous as I didn't have any.  I might have been a bit more excited than my daughter when I had her open it up but she was just as excited when the music started to play.  

This week my daughter got one of her own!  The above "Lily Girl Music Box" is so precious.   She already has a couple musical snow globes and figurines so this one goes with her collection really well.  She played the song several times while cleaning her room last night.  :) 

The new Precious Moment figurine is adorable with the bright green color and the sweet music it plays.  This sweet gift would be such a nice surprise in any Easter basket... who needs all that sugar anyway.  Go get your own Precious Moment's for your child and give them something that will last a lifetime and not just a couple hours with candy!

Go shop now and see all the beautiful options that Precious Moments has for you or your child!

One thing I do with my kids after watching a movie is talking about connections we make from the movie to our Bible!  (At my church I get to do monthly movie nights and this is so fun)
Here are a few questions to get you started discussing this movie with your kids!

Questions for Consideration:
 1. How is service a part of your life? How can you make it a bigger part? Write down some ways you can serve the people nearest you.
 2. Read Philippians 2:3. Why do you think humility and service are linked? How can being humble give you more opportunities to serve? 
3. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “The greatest among you will be your servant” (Matthew 23:11)? How does serving make you great?
Guiding Scripture:* “The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” —Matthew 23:11-12

Questions for Consideration: 
1. When have you showed courage? What was the result?
 2. Remember a time that someone’s bravery inspired you. Who was it and what did they do that motivated you to act courageously?
 3. In what area of your life do you need to show more courage? What is stopping you and how can you overcome that?
Guiding Scripture:* “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” —Joshua 1:9

My Review
Thank you Booklook program for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.
This board book takes gives you all the warm fuzzy feelings.  I just love books that showcase the love of a parent!  This book also showcases God.  The cute raccoon pair is a father and child and with each page, you see them have fun and on some pages, you learn more about God too.  Some of the adventures in the book include fort building, walks, helping each other, wrestling, bonfire, and even bed time prayers. This board book is appropriate for preschool and younger but I do believe all ages can enjoy this quick but adorable book.
The author and illustrator did a great job with each page!  This book is one that is sure to be a great addition to any library or a great gift to a new father!

Collector? Collections??

Do you have something that you collect?   Not just those coin collectors but something else?  Stuffed animals?  Random animal?  Keepsakes?  

I don't really consider myself a collector but I do have over 10 Willow Tree Figurines.  There is something so sweet about these faceless figurines.  For me, they are almost like milestones in my own life.   Like I have a sister one, then a couple one, one holding a baby, then a family one.  

Willow Tree figurines are sold all over but one online place is  The prices seem very similar to prices I have seen in other stores. is a website based out of Italy that sells way more then the figurines I collect.  They have items that your church might need from communion supplies to candles to cross necklaces.   They have so many different religious items that you can spend a long time browsing their site.  I even found a small selection of tea!  I will admit that the website does favor more of the catholic traditions.
