Charm Factory Review and Giveaway

I am very exicted for this review. I was givenGarnet Bracelet with crystal heart from Charm Factory. The charm bracelets are 24.99 plus shipping. Which is not a bad price.

I gave the bracelet to Hailey since it is her birth stone. She loves it! She has worn it for 2 days straight and wont take it off. I even wore the bracelet and I am allergic to certain metals and I did not break out which pleased me very much.

Monster Truck Nationals

Last Nite we took the kids to see a Moster Truck Show at the Covelli Center! It was mine and the kids' 1st show. My husband was so excited to see this! He was like a kid in an candy store.

Before the Show they had a "Pit Party" where you could meet the drivers and see the trucks...Here are the drivers

They also met the "Star Boyz" which are stunt motorcyclist. Tyler was in love with " Angel"! He gave her a kiss and said "would you be my girlfriend" and I laughed so hard!!!

They had 4 competions with the Monster trucks.....One to see who could do the best donuts....One driver threw his steering wheel out of his truck. The next was smashing cars. Another was a race to see who could get over the cars the quickest, and last was free style....

BigFoot won 2 competions!!!! Bad Habit won the Freestyle

The nicest driver was Joycelyn who drove High Maintence. After her freeystle she jumped into the crowd and shook hands and took pictures with the kids.

Overall this was a fun event for the family. He ring host "Porkchop" was hillarious. He did a Michael Jackson dance, gave shirts away, and also gave a little boy a brand new bike.

I cant wait to see another Monster Truck Show. My kids enjoyed it and are still talking about it this morning!!!

Upcoming review/giveaways

Charm Factory

Keep ur eyes out

PicPocket Books: kids' picture books for the iPhone and iPod touch review/giveaway

There’s no denying it. The digital age has fully arrived. It completely permeates our work space and also our home and family life. The children born in this decade and the next are literally introduced to technology in the cradle. Many traditional tools, accessories and staples now have digital counterparts. The classic picture book is no exception.

In July 2009, PicPocket Books released a series of new applications: children's picture books for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The apps are available on Apple’s iTunes Store.

PicPocket Books makes quality children’s titles enjoyable on-the-go in situations where it's impractical to bring the physical books. The digital books are not meant as replacements for print books or the valuable time parents can spend reading to their children, but as educational and culturally valuable iPhone apps that are alternatives to video games or movies, especially for families on-the-go.

PicPocket Books publishes titles as true-to-the-book as possible, using full-color illustrations, professionally recorded audio and interactive highlighting of words as the story is read. We encourage early literacy and instilling an early love of books and reading in children.

Round Is A Mooncake and I Can Do It Too! are delightful titles for young children from the popular San Francisco publisher Chronicle Books. The "Big Stuff Books" are heavily geared towards boys and early literacy, and My Friend Isabelle is a sweet children's story in classic picture book form. Originally published as board books, they are intended for toddlers or very young children. We have over 20 titles on iTunes - some, like Papa Gatto, Tire Mountain and Sleeping Beauty are longer picture books for slightly older children. Each app has the full color, high res illustrations of the original book, plus an audio track and a learn-to-read option: each word is highlighted as it is spoken on the audio track to encourage emergent readers to connect the spoken and printed words.

These picture books are productions of traditional, published picture books that have been re-designed for the iPhone. They are meant to be very faithful to the original works and specifically promote and are intended to encourage early literacy and forming a love of books and reading in early childhood.

To see see a list of PicPocket Books' titles, please visit PicPocketBooks . Many families are short on time and e-books can be read any time, any place. We believe that if reading picture books on the iPhone means that more families are reading together and that more kids have more exposure to storybooks, then they are a great option for the tech savvy families of today.

PicPocket Books is offering two lucky winners a chance to choose three titles each from their selection of picture books.

Here are the Rules to enter the Give Away.

The contest runs through March 12th.

Please leave a SEPARATE comment for each Entry!

* For the first entry - Go to: PicPocketBooks
Browse through the book list and let me know the name of one of the books you would choose if you win.

* 1 extra entry - blog about the give away, and leave a link. (or add a picture with a link to the sidebar of your blog)

* 1 extra entry - mention the give away on Facebook with a link, let me know that you did

* 1 extra entry - Follow PicPocket Books on Twitter and Tweet about this contest with a link; let me know where.

Cooking with the kids and using Curious Chef Products

Yesterday we decided to make a dessert pizza. We used sugar cookie dough to make the crust. Whipped cream as the sauce (lol) and we topped it with Strawberries, Grapes, Pineapple and Bananas. The kids enjoyed making it but mostly enjoyed eating it.

I enjoyed doing this with the kids.
