Still looking for the perfect gift for Dad or a graduate? Take a look at the Go Pro HERO+ LCD.  It is available at Best Buy now just in time for Father’s Day/Graduation. This is definitely a camera you want to capture those very important moments such as graduation, the birth of a child, birthday parties, holidays, etc. Imagine looking back 18 years from now on the birth of your child now that they are graduate.Honestly I really wish I would’ve had a Go Pro last week when my son graduated High School, the photos/video would’ve been amazing to have and look back on. Instead I have grainy photos from my cell phone.

Why get the new GoPro camera?  The new GoPro camera is perfect for capturing sweet family moments, long summer breaks and every journey that lies ahead. Imagine capturing your loved one in a giant wave or the moment your child has just built their first sandcastle and didn’t realize they did it where the tide will come in. Capture it quickly because it’ll be gone in a flash. Or maybe you want to grab the moment your child swims for the first time or dives off the diving board.

VeggieTales Noah’s Ark Review & Giveaway

February 5, 2015 By · 17 Comments

noah2

As an official Family Christian Blogger, I received a copy of the Noah’s Ark VeggieTales Movie to review.  All opinions/pictures are my own. 

I have been watching VeggieTales since SoccerBoy was 5 years old, he’s turning 18 at the end of March if that tells you anything. This has been one of the staples in my house even when I wasn’t attending church. I love the little stories they tell and how they relate to the bible. I was lucky enough to be asked to review the screener of VeggieTales Noah’s Ark and with all the recent Noah’s Ark movies that have come out in theater I had to see the VeggieTale version. (yes I knew it would have some dramatization, I mean there aren’t too many veggies that can talk) We have watched it as a family twice and today Nicoli (20 months old) is watching it as I type this. I love the fact that all my kids still love it (it teaches a message every time) and will sing the silly songs together.

About Noah’s Ark:

Noah and his family together with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyone’s faith has been tested, and they’re ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God’s promises?

This was all about “God’s Plan” and how you must listen to it even when you think it might be crazy. I dno’t know how many of you out there question what he asks of you but I have. It starts right off with Noah’s son, Shem and his wife talking about starting their home and family on a bike ride, until they see the property and that Noah is up to something. They begin seeing 2 of every animal and as they get closer to the orange grove there is a giant boat (the Ark) in the middle of it. First, let me tell you the characters have changed slightly, by that I only mean the coloring and Bob the Tomato is thinner, these were a few things my kids noticed.

Little A (age 7) loved God’s promise with the rainbow because it was so beautiful and meant he’d never do it again.

10 Hallmark Christmas Movies She’ll Love to Find in Her Stocking

December 18, 2014 By · 17 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent a few movies to review, all opinions are my own. There may also be some affiliate links in this post. Happy Holidays!!

A Cookie Cutter Christmas

Trying to find the perfect Christmas gift or Stocking stuffer idea for your lady friend, wife, aunt, grandmother? Not to worry if she is the type that loves Christmas movies or romantic movies I’ve got quite a list for you and they are all from Hallmark so it’ll be really easy to find. Plus you can snuggle up with her and sip hot chocolate as the two of you watch them together. Don’t forget each one of these movies are also children friendly which means the entire family can enjoy them which is perfect for Christmas.

I was lucky enough to review each one of these wonderful movies and truth be told (if you’ve ever followed me on Facebook, Twitter or even the blog you know I LOVE to begin watching holiday movies as early as Halloween) I loved each one. I’ve watched them all so many times, I’m even including a few I watched in the past because I loved them so much.

A Cookie Cutter Christmas DVD 3D

Hallmark A Cookie Cutter Christmas DVD, starring Erin Krakow (“Army Wives”), David Haydn-Jones (The Last Kiss) and Alan Thicke (“Growing Pains”), follows a journalist sent to cover Christmas Town’s annual cookie bake-off who finds herself competing for the affection of a new love interest. The entertaining and uplifting story about doing whatever it takes for love premieres on Hallmark Channel November 9 and be available on DVD and Digital HD November 11.

As for me I couldn’t help but laugh most of the way through this movie. I mean there was total jealousy and betrayal, sneakiness and you just wanted to bake. Yes, this movie made me want to make my own peppermint cookie drops and see what type of creations I could come up with. In fact I did but with hot chocolate, I do plan on experimenting with cookies this upcoming week to see what the kids and I can create. Oh boy! I guess I liked it so much more because Christie (a school teacher) wants to not only impress a guy but also beat another teacher and jumps at the chance to upstage another teacher in a cookie bake off, only she doesn’t know how to bake. As many of you know, I am learning to cook/bake/etc so I totally saw myself there.

Northpole Movie Review

December 9, 2014 By · 1 Comment

This post may contain affiliate links. The Life of a Home Mom receives free products for review purposes and may sometimes be compensated for posts but all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Northpole was really funny especially since little Kevin is constantly telling his mom (played by Tiffani Thiessen, who I was so excited to see in a movie) all about his elf-friend, Clementine (played by Bailee Madison) and she just thinks he has a very active imagination. Clementine is an Elf that is trying to find a way to keep her hometown from being destroyed, the only way it can stay powered up is with the magic of Christmas. We all now the magic of Christmas is good cheer, laughter and the belief in Santa and each other. But what happens when everyone is too busy for that? As the town snowflake begins to fade she is the only one left to save the town and she steals Santa’s reindeer to do it.

northpolecommunicator

This is definitely a great family movie to watch during the holidays to share with about the magic of the Northpole and Santa. We got a lot of laughs out of it especially during the snowball scene and the attempted snowball fight. BabyGirl’s favorite part was the family scenes like baking cookies because it makes you feel good. SoccerBoy loved when the mom had to explain it was HER child getting in trouble. Eeek! I remember all too well when he did something similar to me. Can Clementine convince a single mom and her son that she needs their help to save her own town? It’s a race against time and the snowflakes are quickly fading."Northpole" Hallmark Channel

Currently Northpole is being played on the Hallmark channel but if you aren’t lucky enough to have that channel or catch it this cute movie was just released on DVD. We loved this movie so much that it inspired us to have a Northpole themed Party, which I will be including on this blog during the week. The best part of this movie is you see it everywhere you go, especially at Walmart. Each time when we’ve went shopping the kids would ask me to pick something up, the first time it was the Northpole themed plastic cups. I grabbed one for each and used a permanent marker to put their names on it. This last time we got Rooftop drop so we can play it at our party. I can’t wait to share all that with you. Stay tuned and please if you have seen the movie let me know what you think of it.

Fall Activities For Indiana

November 9, 2014 By · 1 Comment

I love Fall, especially Fall in Indiana because everything is changing colors. The reds, oranges, yellows and even the browns of nature is lovely this time of year. This is the time you can get out of your home and do some apple picking, take your family to on a hay ride or explore a hay maze. No, hay mazes aren’t just for Halloween they are perfect just to explore with the family.

If you are the type of person that likes to can or freeze food now is the time to get your canning supplies out. Whether you have your own fruits/veggies or visit a farm this is the best time to make applesauce, apple pie filling, and more. There are fresh fruit and vegetable markets and festivals going on right now, the prices will be perfect to buy your items in bundles. Here’s a website to make it a bit easier on you to find what the times are for you and/or your family to pick fresh fruits and vegetables at the farms.
