"The Friendly Beasts" by Rebecca St. James- Book Review

The Friendly Beasts

Don't let the title of this book fool you, this is a Christmas book!  Rebecca St. James is the artist who narrates and performs a classic Christmas Carol in this adorable children's story.  

This story/song retells the birth of Jesus in the eyes of the animals.  It includes five animals- a cow, a sheep, a camel, a donkey, and a dove.  I love how each of these five animals shows Jesus some love with a gift!  :) The book comes with a CD with Rebecca St. James singing the song and a total of 4 tracks.  One of the tracks ins Rebecca's Christmas Memories which is sure to touch your heart.  I am hoping to create memories with my children and I know this book will be a favorite Christmas story to read year after year.  

Not only was the songs and narration done beautifully but the illustrator captures the birth of Jesus in brilliant colors.  Anna Vojtech has illustrated several books for children including folktales  and stories about nature.

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,
