Take a cuddle snooze

My sister was sneaky and snapped this picture of my son and I when we were visiting a couple weeks ago.  At first I thought the picture was icky but now I love it.  I love moments of snuggling with my kiddos...and my hubby too! The reason I love this picture though is not just because I love to cuddle and sleep but because it reminds me of so much more!  

As a parent we have many choices to make.  One decision that my husband and I made was for me to not work full time and be with our children.  I do make some money on the side with a couple side jobs and from this blog so we truly have been blessed with these opportunities but no matter what, the time I spend with my kids well out weighs the money from a full time working mom.  (I know many women do not have the choice so this is not to make you feel guilty or bad)  

I know I am guilty of wanting to buy my children every thing they want but truly no gift is more important then TIME.  

As we prepare for Thanksgiving I am so thankful for my hardworking husband and my two wonderful children.  :)  With Christmas also fast approaching remember that time with your loved ones is the best gift.  Think about it!!! Instead of spending money on toys and things that are not needed maybe try a gift of time.  Go bowling, game night, swimming, crafts, or look around your town and find an activity to try and buy a gift card there to replace a gift!  :)

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,
