The Original Christmas Specials Collection

Posted on December 6, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

The Blu Ray Disc, Deluxe Edition of  The Original Christmas Specials Collection is wonderful.  It brings back so many memories, and now I’m making those memories with my children.  Even though my daughter is in her 20s, she still loves to sit down and watch these animated flicks with my 7 year old, and me.

My favorite has always been Frosty the Snowman, while my daughter’s favorite is The Little Drummer Boy, and Jacob, my 7 year old, well he’s not sure which one he likes most.  We’ve watched this Blu Ray about 15 times already, but I keep wanting to go back for more.  And, it’s so cute, that I’ve ordered one for my best friend’s daughter, for Christmas.

There’s tons of bonuses on this Blu Ray, and the discs are inexpensive.  Get yours in time for Christmas.

I can never stay up late enough, yes 8pm is late to me, to watch these on tv, so I now have the discs and can watch when we are ready.

‘Tis the season to enjoy the timeless holiday classics in The Original Christmas Specials Collection featuring five unforgettable stories. Produced by Rankin/Bass, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town and The Little Drummer Boy feature iconic “Animagic” stop-motion animation and Frosty the Snowman and Cricket on the Hearth are beautifully animated. Starring the voice talents of Fred Astaire, Jimmy Durante, Mickey Rooney, Danny Thomas, Burl Ives and many more, these favorites also feature some of the most beloved songs of the season and are sure to entertain audiences of all ages for generations to come!

Cave Tools has the best Grilling products around

Posted on November 28, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

I recently received a Marinade Meat Injector, and I love it.  We have learned to use it nearly every time we cook meat, and not just for Grilling time.  Cave Tools has been one of my favorite brands for over a year.  I love all of their products, and the Meat Injector is my favorite, by far.  Like I said, we use it nearly every time we cook meat.

My 21 year old, daughter, even uses it.  She makes her boyfriend these fantastic pork chops, and she injects soy sauce in them.  This is a cool thing, and I love being her taste tester.  We have also used it to inject barbecue sauce into chicken, which turned out terrific.

Cave Tools Meat Injector Kit can also be bought on Amazon.  No matter where you get it, you definitely want to purchase it.  The meat tastes so much better when the flavors are injected, instead of just soaked.

There’s a measurement window, so you know just how much flavor you are injecting.  Don’t want to overpower the flavor, from the meat taste.  We’ve gotten it just right several times.

And, you can save 15% off your purchase price, when you order using code:   INJECTOR15

5 Giant Reasons Why Cave Tools Has the Best BBQ Meat Injector on the Market:

  • High Grade 304 Stainless Steel Will Never Bend, Clog, or Break
  • Maximum Capacity 2.3 Ounce Extended Barrel for Fewer Refills
  • Clear Measurement Window For Portioning Out Your Injections
  • Inject Any Size or Cut of Meat With Your 3 Marinade Needles
  • Precision Fit Plunger Provides Air Tight Suction and Smooth Release

Package From Santa is the Perfect Gift for Any Boy or Girl

Posted on November 28, 2018 in kids Reviews US Family Guide

We love Package From Santa.  This is the second year that we’ve used them.  My 7 year old, Jacob, really loves receiving this kit, all the way from the North Pole.  Santa is alive and well, when you receive this kit.

We received a Nice List Letter, a Christmas Countdown Calendar, a Santa’s flight plan, etc.  Jacob went nuts when he received this package.

There’s even a nicer package, that comes with a whole lot more, including reindeer food, hot cocoa, a candy cane, and more.  You just have to pick the kit that fits your needs.

We even get a phone call from Santa, along with a video, showing Jacob on the nice list.  This really is a fabulous kit.

If you order through US Family Guide, you will receive a 25% discount on your purchase.  This really makes it a great deal.  It’s a great deal without the 25% discount, because my child still believes, and that’s what really matters.

When Jacob got Santa’s Flight Plan, he went crazy.  Your family will love it too.  It was such a treat to see that little face light up.  And, I’m sure he went to school, and told all of his friends that he made the Nice List.  These are priceless memories, that will last a lifetime.

I still have last year’s Nice List letter, and I’ll save them for Jacob, so when he grows up, he will be able to look back on these wonderful memories.

Just Add Color for Any Birthday Party

Posted on November 28, 2018 in kids Reviews US Family Guide

My 7 year old, Jacob, loved his Just Add Color kit, we received.  He had a blast with his 21 year old, sister, and her boyfriend, along with a few of his cousins.  It was so much fun watching them play.  We haven’t had a party like this in a while.  Though it wasn’t Jacob’s birthday, we had a blast.  With his cousin’s birthday being in December, this was a whole lot of fun for all the kids.

Just Add Color is a premium kit, with lots of color fun, and through US Family Guide, you can get the kit for such an excellent price.   You can get 3 bags of color, 3 bottles, to put the colors in, and more.  Check it out on their website.  This is one fun time.

Being from Pennsylvania, it was a little hard to find the right day to get out and have fun.  We did get a sort of warm, but cool, day, with no rain.  So, we took advantage of it.  You can use Just Add Color in so many places.  Jacob painted himself, and Sarah made a picture on the porch, which the snow later dissolved.

This was such a fun day, and the kids, and I, will remember it for a lifetime.  Sarah wanted to wear a white shirt, but it was so chilly out, that we had to wear jackets, but this would’ve been a great idea, had it been a beautiful day.  This is a day that these kids won’t forget!

Just Add Color Party, a US-based company, was established to help you create beautiful and memorable color experiences at your outdoor parties with the people you love.

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks Book Tour Stop

Posted on November 21, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is a great book, and my 7 year old loves it.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect book for bedtime, last night.  Jacob listened to the tale, and really got it.  I was so excited when he started asking me questions, about what I had just read.  Jonathan London is an excellent writer, and he got this book perfectly right!

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks has a lot of illustrations by Andrew Joyner, and they are so colorful, and made Jacob really look twice, we discussed the pictures, as well.  He really enjoyed the book, and asked if we could read it again tonight.  I told him, “Of course, but this time you will read it to Mommy”, and he agreed.  I’m trying to help him read, so what better way, than to have him read this wonderful book to me?  I can’t wait, to be honest!

Duck and Hippo are thankful for good friends!

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Hippo has his heart set on having a good old-fashioned feast with Duck and their friends. Together, Duck and Hippo go shopping for food and invite Turtle, Elephant, and Pig to share the special day with them. Then they get everything ready. But while Hippo goes to bed dreaming of his good old-fashioned Thanksgiving, Duck is busy making her own plans. There’s going to be a BIG surprise—one that will remind Hippo of all he has to be thankful for. Join Duck and Hippo for a memorable celebration!

Ellie Claire art journal make a great Holiday Gift!

Posted on November 16, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love the Ellie Claire Art Journals I received.  They are so beautiful, the pictures in them are fascinating.  I can’t get over all the pretty colors, and fantastic art work.  And, the quotes are so inspirational.  My sister loves them, too.  I gifted one to her, and she uses it daily.

I used different pens/markers in the book I kept, and let me tell you, there is no bleeding through the paper.  The paper is so thick, it’s great.  I also gave a book to my 21 year old, daughter, and she loves the thickness of the paper as well.  She uses her inspirational journal for college, and says the professor even loves it, and asked where to get her hands on one.

One of the sayings “Nature decrees that we do not exceed the speed of light.  All other impossibilities are optional.” is my favorite.  I love this saying, and it’s written by Robert Brault.  Another saying, “Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder.  Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of Your universe…I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all.” by Abraham Joshua Heschel is a great inspirational marker in my life.

The Illuminate Your Story book even has how to sketch fancy letters in it.  It’s amazing.  There’s also The Illustrated Word Coloring Journal, and Faith & Lettering Journal.  All of which are fascinating, and make you really look into your life.  I love them all, but had no use for all 3, so I was able to gift two out.  And, my sister, and daughter absolutely adore them, as much as I do.

Posted on November 16, 2018 in Disney Movies

 

ABOUT THE MOVIE

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
