With my code I decided to pick a familiar and old time favorite game that I played as a young girl. It is a completely different feel playing a board game on the computer. There are some pro's and con's in my opinion. I love that the game goes quicker but I kinda miss the handling of the cars and people and spinning the dial. So far I have only played the computer so that might have made it less exciting rather then having a family member or friend playing next to me. I think I try to play with my daughter soon! I think she would enjoy it! The game had a nice feature to speed up the car moving, so you had the option to slow it done or speed it up. I had some confusion within the game, I had money coming in and out and never knew exactly what was occurring within the game. Next time I think I will pick a different game then a board game. There are so many different games for many ages and varieties.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
