Octo-Bird Fest- Fall Fun

One of the reasons I love living in a bigger city is all the free or affordable events.  I love the events that are geared for family and children the most! :) 

This weekend our local art museum had a big event, the Octo-Bir Fest.  It is a great event for kids.  Majority of the events were free or VERY affordable.  

My kids both had fun on a beautiful, sunny, and warm day!  The kids got to play some games, do some crafts, look at some of the art in the outside garden, decorate a pumpkin, and my favorite we did a caricature!  What do you think of the caricature?  :)  I love my son's in the picture but me and my daughter look a bit odd.  hahaha!  

The crafts included a sand art pumpkin which my daughter loved, stamping on some birds, and a ghost.  My daughter said her favorite thing was decorating a pumpkin.  She decorated her pumpkin with some pipe cleaners, fabric, and marker.  :)  I will try to get some pictures up of it later.  :) 

Hope everyone is enjoying their fall fun! :)

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,
