Back to School Pictures 2015-2016

Image
My heart is so full as I look at these pictures!   My two little babies are growing so quickly!   I just love being their mom and have so much fun watching them grow and learn more things each and every day!

This year Selah is in second grade and Titus is in preschool.   One more year before they are both at the same school riding the same bus which will make it so much easier for daddy!  

Much hasn't change for Selah, she still wants to be a singer.   She loves to sing all day every day.   She also told me that she would like to be a music teacher as well as a singer/performer.    Selah- super sweet and caring, has trouble following directions because she gets distracted, has so many friends, likes to teach her brother, loves playing with her dog, Kiah, and loves to help mom in the kitchen.  
Spidermand is the perfect answer for any 4 year old!   I love his spunk and humor!  I get teary eyed thinking about my lil baby boy going to school but he is so excited... even if he is super sh…

Book Review- All About Jesus Sticker and Activity Book

Image
The life of Jesus comes alive through age-appropriate puzzles, activity pages, and 50 reusable stickers in this friendly and fun sticker and activity book featuring The Beginner’s Bible classic art and simply written content.


My Review:
I had one of the biggest sticker collections growing up but I never took the stickers off the sheet, I only collected them.   Now as an adult I let my kids use my old stickers and stick them on projects!   This book comes with fun stickers to add to this book.   It gives stickers an actual purpose which creates excitement with each turning of the page.   My four and seven year old each worked on taking turns and placing the picture where it belonged.   It is so much more fun then collecting the stickers like I did as an adult.   

The key stories in this book are great and there are more activities that go along with the stickers too!  

Disclosure**  I received this book as part of the Z Blog squad free of charge in exchange of an honest review.  All opinio…

Pete the Cat Hot Dots Review

Image
Well summer is almost done and my kids will soon be in school.   Selah a 2nd grader and Titus a preschooler!  I am so excited for them for the new year... we are expecting great things this year! 
Titus was very excited to get this Pete the Cat Hot Dots set!   We have other Hot Dots sets so this new one made him very excited!  There are so many different activities that hit every educational area!  The Set has two different work books that allowed my son a lot of fun.   He loved the stickers he earned that was a part of the set.  He is also anxious and excited to earn the certificate that came with the set.    
When I sat down with my son it was so fun to see him thinking!  It was as if I saw his confidence grow while playing!  I recommend getting a Hot Dots set and having some fun with your child!  

About the set: Kids will be learning in no time with Preschool Rocks!, level 2 of the two all-new Hot Dots® Jr. Pete the Cat® preschool sets. A perfect complement to the Pete the Cat® storybo…

Silk Plant Review

Image
Thanks Direct Silk Plants for sending me this beautiful arrangement free of charge in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.   
I have never owned a silk flower arrangement so I was a bit curious how much I would like it and how real it would look.   
My package arrived very fast and it was packaged very safely.  I like the bright colors of the orchids but I love the glass vase it came in!   The combination is a stunning decoration that I am going to use for a long time.  
The best part is I can't kill this plant!  :)   Yes I have killed a few flowers and plants in my day.  So if you are in search for something classy or fun to add some color in your place then look no further then Direct Silk Plants.  
I currently have my flower near a window but will probably move it around so the sun does not fade the colors.   
Product Description: Available in complimentary colors, our Phalaenopsis Orchid Plant will bring class and elegance …

Framed Art Review

Image
Framedart.com is the one to thank for this awesome framed art that is perfect in our newly remodeled church kitchen.  
Using the Framed Art site was simple and fun with endless choices to make your house just right.  Ordering was simple and shipping was quick.    
I chose this framed tree art to review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.   My picture is not the best but the frame also says, "Come near to God and He will come near to you."  It is a great quote to read and have in our kitchen at church.  
I also love the black and white print with the dark black frame.   The site has several different frame choices but I am satisfied with my black choice.
