Thanksgiving Book Round-up

My family LOVES books.  My mom is a first grade teacher so when I was a kid we were always encouraged to read good books.  That love of books has carried over to me as the mom now, and it is so fun to find great books for my kids.  I truly believe reading often to your kids promotes good language, reading, and writing skills.  Both of my kids already love the time we spend sitting and reading … [Read more...]

Brilliant Sky Toys & Books {Review}

The holiday season is right around the corner!  Can you believe it?!  I like to get a jump on my holiday shopping now because I do not love shopping  packed stores, fighting crowds, searching for toys in unorganized chaos, grumpy or stressed out store workers, trying to park and all that.  Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like people fighting each other over the “must have” toy for the year.  … [Read more...]

Is your Toddler/Child afraid of Monsters? Then you need your own customized CurlyQ Cuties Monster!!!

As most of you who read my blog regularly know. My toddler has been having some real issues with "monsters" in the house. If he is watching tv or playing with toys and he suddenly noticed the room close by was dark he would get upset saying monsters were going to get him. This in return resulted in more lights on then we liked. Night time & Nap time weren't much fun either. Even with a night … [Read more...]

Our Carved Pumpkins!

The other day the kids & I went pumpkin picking. We carved our pumpkins just the other night. We got the templates free online from The Pumpkin Lady.
