My Review
Who likes a good family/drama movie? I have to admit I usually don't bring my kids to these types of movies but this time as I watched the trailer I knew my daughter would love a good dog movie. With that said I don't think the movie was appropriate for my son. He may be more sensitive than other 6-year-olds. He was on my lap during a few season after the lightning struck and when the bear came. It did provide us the opportunity to talk after the movie. He also did sneak out with dad for a few minutes to use the bathroom.

So overall in my opinion the movie was a good tear jerker. My daughter and I both had tears during the movie. The movie had a powerful story of making sure family is a priority which makes me smile. Our kids grow up too fast and we need to be present for them! I think my daughter was surprised that this story was based on a true story. We actually wondered if the bear scene really happened. Then we were left wondering if Mitch the lead male went to the doctor. Ok, I was left wondering as I really wanted to know more about how the lightning affected him. I know writers have a time deadline on how long movies can be but I'm curious.

Yes, this movie is family friendly and God is definitely centered in their lives. (Just be aware there are a few intense moments so younger eyes and ears may not appreciate that.) I love how this movie shows prayer as a vital part of their lives.

If you are in need of a family-friendly movie night then go watch this... but don't forget the tissues!

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,
