You know, I have a confession to make.  I really don’t know all that much about Minecraft.  I know, major boy-mom fail!! But the one thing that I do know is that my boys would play and build on Minecraft 24 hours/day every single day of the week if I let them and a big portion of our conversations revolve around Minecraft.  And I love that Minecraft is a great way for them to use their imaginations and build some pretty amazing things.  When I came across this Minecraft Snowflakes tutorial, I knew that we had to make them!

Petz Beach Review

Petz Beach Game: Boy Approved

Have you started your Holiday shopping yet??  I’m just barely getting started but I’m finding that the number one thing on my boys’ wishlists is video games.   Petz Beach is one of the latest Nintendo 3DS games from Ubisoft and is being released just in time for the holidays and is the perfect gift if your kids love animals and video games as much as mine do. .Petz Beach Review

 

One of my favorite things about my boys is how much fun they have had over the years playing with their stuffed animals.  When my oldest boys were little, they would spend hours playing with their animals, especially their stuffed dogs.  Now they have passed those same animals on to my youngest boys who love to play with them.  And we have quite the collection of critters, especially dogs!

Thanksgiving Activity

Thankfulness Chain

I think I am one of the few people who still wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas but I just love Thanksgiving too much to let it get passed over.  Maybe it is because I love Fall so much and have missed it since moving to Nevada or maybe I just like that Thanksgiving gives us a time to think about what we already have and show thankfulness without all the hype that a lot of other holidays have.

Spider Pancakes

Black Widow Spider Pancakes

In the past we have made Frankenstein pancakes and Jack-O-Lantern pancakes and they were a big hit with my kids.  So I tried to figure out what I could make that the boys would love and decided that Black Widow Spider pancakes would be about as creepy as it could get.  I am definitely NOT a fan of these critters when I find them out in the yard and every time I put up fake spider webs outside, I worry that we will attract more than just the fake plastic spiders that the webs come with. ;) [Read more…]

Zoomer Dino Review

Zoomer Dino Review

Each of my boys has gone through a phase of complete obsession with dinosaurs. We have spent our days planning dinosaur birthday parties and visiting dinosaur museums. Also, over the years we have collected or inherited just about every type of dinosaur toy imaginable. So when I was given the opportunity to receive the new Zoomer Dino from Spin Master and do a Zoomer Dino Review, I knew my boys were in for a huge treat.

Zoomer Dino ReviewZoomer Dino Review

From the minute we opened the box, my boys were hooked. And I’ll admin that I was really impressed with all of the capabilities that this dinosaur has. Boomer the dinosaur is so fun! The Zoomer Dino is different than any other dinosaur or remote control toy that we have because he is so interactive and can detect when you are nearby and if you are interacting with him.

Family Dinner

Ways to Make Family Dinner More Meaningful: Share the Table

In today’s world, making time for family dinner is increasingly difficult.  With work, after-school sports, music lessons, etc. it can be really hard to sit down and eat a meal together as a family. And often when we do sit down to eat we are distracted by television, phone calls, social media, etc.  I think it is time to take back family dinner and make it more meaningful.

Family DinnerWays to Make Family Dinner More Meaningful

This past week my family had an amazing time at the Family Forward conference at Universal Studios in Orlando.  We had the opportunity to make and share a family meal together and learn about ways that we can make family meals more meaningful.  We heard from Barilla’s guest chef, Daniele Baliani, as he helped us prepare a delicious lunch of Barilla Penne Salad with Roasted Peppers, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Arugula, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil.  It was delicious!  (recipe below) Prior to this lunch, Barilla had asked me to take part in their Barilla Blog Tour and share our experience of what our family learned  about the Share The Table initiative with my readers.

Back to School Breakfast

ABC: Back to School Breakfast

The first week back to school around here is always filled with excitement, expectations and a little bit of uncertainty and anxiety so we have a tradition of sending my boys off with a fun breakfast.  I love, love, love to make fun things out of pancakes for my boys and for the the first day of school we have an ABC back to school breakfast.Back to School Breakfast

Back to School Breakfast

This is one of those breakfasts that is simple to make yet your kids will love.  I know we don’t have a lot of time in the mornings to get breakfast made.  For this, I just mix up some “just add water” pancake mix and pour it into a condiment bottle.  I  knew that I didn’t have the skills to do it with just a spoonful of batter so I pulled out the same condiment bottles that I had previously used to fill with our homemade snow cone syrup, filled them with pancake batter, and they worked perfectly for writing.
