The Simply Me Blog 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Merry Christmas and happy Holidays Simply Me Blog readers!!  Many of you may not know this about me but I am part Irish!  
Growing up my mom would also put a candle near our window on Christmas Eve.  Little girl me use to love this and would ask my mom WHY?  After many years I knew the why, I just wanted to hear her tell me.
The reason was just in case someone like Mary and Joseph needed help in the night that candle showed we were willing to help.  I asked her why my other friends didn't do this and she use to pat my head and tell me it was because we were Irish.  Was that the real reason?  I have no clue!!  But little girl me was pretty proud to be Irish at Christmas time and I use to clean my room extra clean that night in case Mary and Joseph needed to stay in my room.

That was one of my favorite holiday traditions growing up.  Baking cookies with my nanny, singing Christmas songs with my siblings and making cards for family were some of my other favorite times.  For me the holidays is about family.  One of my other favorite thing is getting that perfect gift!  Seeing someones face light up as they open my gift and I know I got it right!  That all the time and stress I put into getting just the right gift was so worth it to see them smiling

The Simply Me guide wants to help make Christmas shopping a bit easier this year.  So over the next few weeks I will be offering tips and gift ideas!  Keep checking back to see all the fun stuff that will be added

Capturing Cresselia

I don't want to brag..... BUT..... my kiddos and I so avoided the summer slide this year!  We want on looks of fun (Educational) trips and every day we read!  Together and apart.
There is just so many awesome books out there that it was hard NOT to read every single day!

One of our newer books that my boys really enjoyed is
CAPTURING CRESSELIA: UNOFFICIAL STORIES FOR POKÉMON COLLECTORS, #2 by Alex Polan (8/9/16, middle grade, ages 8–12)Welcome to Camp Pikachu, where kids can act out adventures from their favorite Pokémon games and cartoons, battling other teams to earn points and badges, and maybe make it into the Summer Camp Hall of Fame! Marco, Nisha, Logan, and Maddy can’t wait to embark on their latest adventure: Pokémon Orienteering! 
This is the perfect book for young reluctant readers and fans of Pokémon

Now my kiddos can most likely name every single Pokemon.  I wont fib I can name most of the originals :).  This book was perfect for them, it brought 2 of their favorite things together.  Reading and Pokemon.  It brought them together in an epic adventure that they both enjoyed!   Brandon enjoyed reading out-loud to his little brother and Quinn enjoyed listening 

The Huntsman: Winter’s War

 If it’s the Snow White tale you’re looking for, discover the story that came before in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The Huntsman: Winter’s War on Blu-ray™ and DVD includes an all-new extended edition of the epic action-adventure, plus exclusive bonus features that reveal the movie’s behind-the-scenes secrets. The Huntsman: Winter’s War stars Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road, Monster) as the evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Emily Blunt: Sicario, Edge of Tomorrow) with an unforgivable act, freezing Freya’s heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. Retreating to a kingdom far to the north, Freya raises an army of Huntsmen as her protectors, with the only rule that no two of them should ever fall in love. As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between good and evil is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Chris Hemsworth: Thor, Star Trek Into Darkness). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain: The Martian,The Help) — the only woman who has ever captured his heart — Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.

And yes it is as awesome as it sounds!  I always love getting the back story to an already favorite story!  As you can imagine Once Upon a Time is and Gotham are 2 of my favorite shows!
This is just like them in the fact you get to see more of the story.  You can start to put pieces together and it gives an old story a whole new spin!

I am sick today :(  Cancel everything, curl up into a ball and cry kind of sick!  Don't worry though I have a doctor appointment later so I will be on the mend soon

With that being said the boys and I are just hanging out at home today and inside.  Last night my hubby got them snacks for today and blew up their air mattress so we could have a movie day when he is at work (The man is a saint by the way lol)

My oldest is obsessed with all stuff Titanic so today when I asked what they wanted to watch they both of course send our new Titanic series that Mill Creek sent us

The Titanic sets sail on a collision course with destiny in this spellbinding epic adventure, featuring outstanding performances by Peter Gallagher, George C. Scott, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Eva Marie Saint, Tim Curry and Marilu Henner. Titanic melds together the heart-wrenching stories of people whose lives, loves, and fortunes were irrevocably changed the night of April 14, 1912.
