The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book has a lot of fun activities for you child

Posted on October 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Jacob, age 7, loves The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book.  It’s got Puzzles, and Mazes, doodling pages, and more.  This book has provided us with hours of fun, and we still have more to do.  There’s over 400 stickers, and Jacob loves them so much, that he doesn’t want to use them.  100 wacky prompts, games and crafts, and Jacob loves it all.  There’s even a pull out poster in the back, that is now on Jacob’s wall.

This book is aimed for your child ages 4 through 8, but you can use it for slightly older kids, too.  Your child will have as much fun with The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book, as mine is having.  What a wonderful Christmas gift this year.  It’s inexpensive, so if you have more than 1 child, buy more than 1 book.  This book really does have everything in it, and your child will love how many hours of fun they have.  And, mine, who is very much into electronics, loves this book so much, that he takes time away from the electronics to do a few pages a day.  We spend about an hour a day doing things out of this book.  I’ve even made copies of the pages he really likes, so we can do it again and again.

With just a pencil and their imagination, readers can decode pirate word scrambles, create their own comic strips, write a hit song for the hedgehog hoedown, and help a little leprechaun find his pot of gold.

Check Out Weekday Suppers Cookbook

Posted on October 6, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide recipes

I love Robert Rose books, and this one is no different.  Best of Bridge Weekday Suppers is the perfect cookbook.  Whether you are an experienced cooker, or new to cooking, this cookbook will help you out of any jam.  Recipes include supper soups, super salads, supper sandwiches, and recipes for chicken, beef, veal, lamb, pork, fish, and vegetarian dishes, and quick and easy desserts.  You will love this cookbook, as much as, if not more than me.

The vegetarian section is my 21 year old, daughter’s, favorite section.  She cooks out of it often, and says it’s delicious and filling.  She said “I love this cookbook mom, and it’s mine now.”  She uses the book at least 3 times a week.

The delectable weekday recipes include Smoky Tomato Chickpea Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons, Shrimp and Bacon Spinach Salad, Pineapple Pulled Pork Buns, Stovetop Gnocchi and Beef Stew, Rosemary Lamb and Feta Meatballs on Lemon Garlic Potatoes, Curried Turkey Pot Pie, Thai Shrimp Cakes and Baked Mushroom and Herb Risotto. With over 4 million Best of Bridge books sold, the ladies have truly become an integral part of dinnertime for families all across North America.

This will be a cherished cookbook, in your family, that will passed down for generations.  It’s the perfect cookbook to have, in your home.

5 Winners! $20 Amazon Gift Card & Pamela Newton’s Book “A Candle For My Mother” Giveaway!

Posted on May 22, 2018 in Giveaways

Sponsored By: Pamela Newton

Hosted By: Love, Mrs. Mommy

*~* 5 Winner Giveaway! *~*

Grand Prize Winner will receive a:
$20 Gift Card To Amazon & a Copy of the Book “A Candle for My Mother”

4 Runners-up will receive a:
copy of the book “A
Candle for My Mother”

Author: Pamela
Newton
About the Book:

A Candle for My
Mother
is an inspirational story of a young woman from the Midwest,
Lorraine Newton, who longed to travel the world despite being the mother of
four young children. “I’m going to see places, come hell or high water!”
Lorraine remarked, and she made it happen.

Lorraine’s stories in the book are told in her own words from tape
recordings she made before she died, and letters saved by a friend,
detailing Lorraine’s family’s amazing experiences in Iraq and travels in
Europe. Into the bubbling political cauldron of the Middle East in the
1950s ventured an American family. Iraq was not necessarily what Lorraine
had in mind, but the country fit exotic to a tee. It conjured up “Ali Baba
and the Forty Thieves,” markets filled with silks and gold, and travel in
Europe on vacations. Lorraine was about to embark on a grand adventure.

Pamela Newton never felt closer to her mom than when she was traveling,
sometimes logging over 100,000 miles a year: “Mom’s adventurous spirit was
with me on every trip, in every country, encouraging me to make the most of
each moment.” The things that Pamela experienced on her business trips
often triggered a remembrance of her mother and her childhood. Those
memories became the reflections and gratitude’s that Pamela expresses at
the end of each chapter when visiting churches across the globe to light
candles for her mother, a tradition she began in Westminster Abbey.

For readers who may be reminded of exciting memories from their childhood,
A Candle for My Mother has been designed with pages interspersed throughout
for writing personal reflections. Here a son or daughter can add their
favorite pictures, recount “Best Day Ever” times, write a thank you to
their mom, or include poems, musings, or thoughts. It is designed to be a
gift to oneself or one’s mom. Read it, write in it and then give it to your
mother…with gratitude.

Now Available: Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Shatter Your Senses!

Posted on September 2, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews

The new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Shatter Your Senses! Book is spectacular.  So many great stories in it, and all true.  I love reading the Ripley’s books.  They always tell me so much stuff I didn’t know.  For example:  SEE the world’s most expensive dress ever sold at auction, worn by starlet Marilyn Monroe and covered in over 6,000 rhinestones!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has always been so entertaining to me.  And, my wife just loves it, as well.  Now, my 20 year old, daughter, is into it.   And, we are getting our 6 year old, son, to look through it as well.  He’s starting to read, but he really enjoys the pictures, for now.

The new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is on sale now, and there’s a first look at all kinds of things, including:

  • TASTE the freaky foods featured—from starfish skewers on the streets of Beijing to Australia’s witchetty grub!
  • FEEL the heat as you read about Taiwan’s traditional fire fishing!
  • SMELL the fresh air—which is sold to tourists in Guangdong Province, China, by the bag!
  • HEAR the crowds roar as performers like AcroBritt, Short E. Dangerously, Captain and Maybelle, and Hammer Head take the stage in Ripley’s Exclusive interviews, showcasing their unbelievable talents!

With over 1,500 all new—and all true—stories to immerse yourself in, Shatter Your Senses! is not just an acquired taste. With sections like Animals, Pop Culture, People, and Beyond Belief, there is something interesting for every reader—guaranteed to inform, entertain, and inspire.

Backyard Chickens: Beyond The Basics

Posted on April 21, 2017 in Reviews

backyard-chickens1

My mom and dad have been considering raising chickens.  With the help of the book “Backyard Chickens: Beyond The Basics” they have decided it’s a great idea.  They went out today, to pick up 6 chicks.  They will start raising the chicks in the house, until they grow their feathers, then move them to outside.  Anyway, the book is great with a lot of great information, that my dad never knew, even though he was raised on a farm.

A must have for every backyard chicken keeper.  Backyard Chickens Beyond the Basics goes beyond introductory lessons and explores the realities of raising a flock for eggs – and entertainment, of course!  From odd eggs and molting to feeding and subjects beginner books don’t adequately address and re-examines common knowledge that may not actually hold true.  It’s a resource to turn to time and again for expert advice to make sure your birds are happy, healthy, and productive.

Lessons For:

  • Expanding Your Flock
  • Understanding Chicken Behavior
  • Keeping a Rooster
  • Adjusting for the Seasons
  • Staying Healthy
  • and more!

My dad says the book is very helpful, and he will use it has his guide for years to come.  He wants to do this permanently, now that he has no other pets, but a lot of property.

I See Me! Personalized Song Book And CD for Christmas

Posted on November 8, 2016 in 2016 Holiday Gift Guide kids Reviews

iseeme

I See Me! has been one of my favorite companies, for years.

img_0319

Their products give a personalized touch to any gift.  I love the way Jacob, age 5, lit up when he heard his Christmas CD yesterday.  And, though, he’s just learning to read, followed along in the sing a long book.  He loves I See Me! as much as I do.

We’ve been getting Jacob products from I See Me! for at least 2 years now.  Every Holiday, we try to pick out something.  This gives a personal gift, because it is personalized with the date, his name, etc.  Take a look at the items they have.  I know you, too, will find something you love from I See Me!

img_0320

There are 12 songs on the CD, and everything is there from Up On The Rooftop, to Frosty The Snowman, and even We Wish You A Merry Christmas.  And, each song has a special place, where they say Jacob’s name.  He loved hearing his name in all the songs.

You can see, in the above picture, his birthday is there, full name, and even Love Mom & Dad, 2016.  This will be a memory he will have forever.  And, when his dad and I are gone, he can still have this book to treasure us.

iseeme3

I See Me! has other personalized gifts as well.  Check out all of their Christmas stuff, here.  From books you can read to your little one, to books they can read themselves, I See Me! is spectacular.
