Stocking Stuffer Idea: Quarto Game

November 11, 2016 By · 2 Comments

Disclosure: We were provided two games for review purposes. All pictures and opinions are our own.

Quarto game

I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for those really great board games for Christmas and this year it is Quarto. For those that read my blog you should already know that every Friday the kids and I play Family Board Game Night. After a long week of being apart and running around it is fun to look forward to something like this.

Being a board game family you get a ton of games, some are good and some not so good. With five kids you want a game that can stand up to five different ages, if ya know what I mean. I LOVE wooden games because of this fact, plus they look really great to be displayed on my nice, black corner desk that sits proudly in my living room. Looking for something like that? Good, look into Quarto by GigamicWorld.

Say & Pray Devotions are a Great Way to Start the Day

November 11, 2016 By · 5 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent the book in order to do a review. 

Get Your Child off on the Right start with Say & Pray Devotions


Say & Pray Devotions book is a great way to start your little ones day off on the right start. Each morning my little Nicoli has looked at his book. Every day he tells me something new, I find it really interesting to hear each of his little stories. Even though I have read to him a few times he changes the story and still has a good message behind it if you really listen. What a great way to introduce them to positive feelings and the bible.

Holiday Cash Giveaway: $130 Amazon Gift Card/Paypal Giveaway

November 11, 2016 By · 2 Comments

That’s right, it’s another giveaway! This giveaway is for a whopping $130 Amazon Gift Card OR Paypal for the Holidays. Thanksgiving is in a few short weeks which means Christmas is just around the corner. Have you done your holiday shopping yet? Do you have all those Christmas wish lists or your Thanksgiving Turkey in your freezer? This could definitely help out.


My son recently went off to boot camp, which means this year our family is celebrating Thanksgiving Day with an actual TURKEY. We haven’t had turkey in about 10 years due to the fact he’s allergic to the bird. Yes, I said that. He’s allergic to turkey. So since he will be busy doing push-ups and sit-ups we will be chowing down on something we haven’t had in a VERY long time. Which means

I need some cash for turkey and all the fixings. hehe. This would be the perfect giveaway for me to enter, but sadly since I wanted to be so nice and offer it up to one person I will not be joining. I’ve teamed up with everyone on the rafflecopter for one lucky winner. So make sure to follow EVERYONE. You never know which will lead to the winner.

Oh for those of you wondering….Christmas is just 44 more days! So get ready for the big man to come. As for me, I’m counting down because that’s when I get to see my son.

One Wish List Item from each of my kids:

BalletGirl 16, is all about make up, boys and work these days so it wasn’t a surprise to see she wanted brushes. Not just brushes but NICE brushes. NAKED is a collection that I love so I can totally understand this. BabyGirl 13yr is more of my Goth girl. She loves all things Nightmare Before Christmas and Hot Topics. She already found a jacket she swears up and down she will wear every single day of winter if she got it. haha.

Little A (9yr) has finally started reading books and while they are related to video games nothing makes me happier than seeing him want to read something. Woo hoo!  Nicoli (3yr) has been all about Peppa Pig and PJ Masks so when he saw the plush version of one of his favorite shows he started asking.

SoccerBoy: Harry Potter Chess Set.

So what’s on your list? Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below. You don’t want to miss out on free money do you?
