My review:
To be honest through out the movie I kept thinking I have seen this movie before, which I have not but the story line is so similar to many movies I have seen.  So it might be a bit predictable but it was still a fun movie to watch.  I suggest the age perfect for this movie would be 8-12 year-olds.  There is some violence and a lot of rude behavior so if you don't want your younger children to see this be aware.  My daughter still watched at 4 and we discussed all the naughty behaviors during the movie.

I think the biggest thing I liked about this movie is the restoration and redemption that occurred between Grandpa and Mom.  No contact for 13 years is sad but how awesome that they were reunited and that a new relationship will stay- TRUE FORGIVENESS!  YAY

I also really enjoyed the judges punishment- I think it should happen more often.  (Instead of Juvenile hall she made him spend 3 months with his grandpa)  The only problem with this punishment is not all Grandpa's will care and teach as much as this one did.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
