Get Your Kids Cooking with Curious Chef

August 23, 2016 By · 16 Comments

Disclosure:  Curious Chef products were sent to us in exchange for an honest review. Pics and opinions are our own. By the way, Nicoli loves cooking with them.

I’m the mom to five kids which means sometimes I’m not always around to do up the cooking. I could be dropping off someone to a school activity, picking up from a sport or running out to get some groceries. It is always so much easier to instruct one of the older children to start or finish a meal so it can be just finishing when I get home. This is why I believe in teaching children young that they can cook for themselves even after they move away. Curious Chef allows young children to help out in the kitchen with their own utensils that are meant just for them. Don’t think just because it is a “child’s item” means they are fake plastic that will break. They actually look really nice and they can cook with them, with force even.

Family Christian Bookstore BOGO deal

This would make a great end of summer sale, but for us it is the beginning of the school year. School started for my crew at the end of July so we’ve been in full swing for a bit but someone is always feeling a little bit left out. I mean can you blame him as he watches everyone talk about going school shopping, gathering up their materials and getting excited about it? Of course he feels like that, he’s only three and is being left behind. He loved having everyone with him all summer and is definitely not a happy camper about them going back to school. I mean it is the point where he is literally trying to hold them down. So I figure it is time to get him a few items. FamilyChristian Store was the place to go. I knew they’d have something for him.

NineLives-NewPoster

I don’t know about you but I love these type of films, not to mention the actors/actresses in this. I can’t wait to see Nine Lives in theater August 5th. For those that haven’t seen the preview or know about here is the information, scroll down to watch the preview.

Miracles from Heaven on Blu-ray & DVD

July 18, 2016 By · 211 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent the same prize pack for this giveaway, all opinions are my own.

MFH-DVD
Have you seen Miracles from Heaven? It is a wonderfully written tear-jerking movie.  I saw it in the theaters and absolutely loved it. This is a movie I took my oldest daughter, Katerina (aka BalletGirl) to a while back. Katerina is not one to tear up for many movies but there were several times I looked over and saw her wiping her face. As for myself, well next time I need to just bring an entire box of Kleenex with me. It was sad, emotional, inspiring, uplifting, testing, etc. I could go on but you get it. All the emotions you can think of put into one show.
