Christmas Love Letters from God - Giveaway

I can hardly believe we are already entering the Christmas season! The temperatures have dropped and Christmas music is already playing on the radio. My kids and I have been talking about some of our favorite holiday traditions as well as brainstorming new ideas.

One new tradition this year has come in the form of a newly released book to read to my younger children. A special book about Jesus' birth!

2 years ago I had the blessing to correspond with author, Glenys Nellist, when she wrote the book Love Letters from God. A year later, she wrote the book Little Love Letters from God. I am excited to introduce her latest children's book in her Love Letters collection entitled "Christmas Love Letters from God".

Groupon has been around for quite some time but they have really expanded what they offer over the years. It used to be that most people used Groupon for saving money while eating out.

Commissioned Board Game Review

Ever since my children were little, I always said I wanted a huge game closet. Each year our family adds a few new games to it as we LOVE playing games! We have all sorts of games for ages little to adult. We recently got to try out a game that is new to the market called Commissioned from Chara Games.

And They are 17. . .

Friday October 21st was my twins, Sarah & Susan's 17th birthday! They started the day with their weekly science class with friends but then had the afternoon to look forward to. They had off work and had 2 of their friends over to hang out and carve pumpkins.

Fun-Time Phonics- Review

Olivia has been a budding reader from quite early on. She enjoys working on learning phonics in a variety of methods. Recently, she had the chance to try out Fun-Time Phonics!™ Software - 2-PCs Win Download from The Critical Thinking Co.™.  This is a software download for Windows which means you don't need the internet to use the program. Fun-Time Phonics is part of the "Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic Before Kindergarten!™" bundle which offers several downloadable programs to help prepare your pre-K student for Kindergarten. You can also download these programs as apps in iTunes and Google Play.

Accountable2You- Review

We all know how beneficial the internet is these days. Unless you are living under a rock, pretty much everyone uses it in some form daily. Just as there are many positives to having internet access at your finger tips, we also know there are some pretty harmful things out there, not only for kids but adults as well. While there are filtering programs that can be used, another way to protect ourselves is by using a form of accountability. We recently had a chance to try out a Family Plan from Accountable2You.
