Yellow Scope Science Kits

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.


Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher.  I wanted to stand in front of a class and make kids love learning as much as I did.  Over the years my dreams shifted a bit, I still work in a school teaching, I still get to pass on my passion for learning.  But my dream changed just a little and now I work with special needs kids.  Every day is an adventure, every day I have the chance to encourge someone.  Younger me would be proud :)  When I heard about Yellow Scope Science Kits I just knew I had to check it out!  Hands on learning in my personal opinion is the best kind of learning!  It gives kids a visual and shows them how things work

Chocolate Pizza Company

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.
One of the highlights of my holidays is the food!  And I am lucky because I grew up with a grandmother whom made cakes and treats for a living!  Yes my grandmother's home was the place to be during the holidays.  Now up until recently I thought there was no dessert my nanny couldn't make....  That was until I found Chocolate Pizza 

Chocolate Pizza® combines everything you love about pizza with everything you love about chocolate, for a delicious gift idea that is sure to impress this holiday season… from grandparents, aunts and uncles to a favorite teacher. Imagine… gourmet milk or dark chocolate blended with English toffee that’s made in-house from a 100-year-old recipe. This decadent concoction is poured into a real pizza pan and topped by hand with a mouth-watering array of sweet and salty goodies, from nuts to peanut butter cups. Choose from dozens of creations – like the Drumstick Chocolate Pizza that pairs salty pretzel bites with savory nuts and gooey caramel or the Candy Avalanche Supreme that is piled high with sweet delights – or create a custom delight with a personal message and your favorite indulgences. Holiday gift baskets and goodies are available, too. Sealed in cellophane and served up in a genuine pizza box, a Chocolate Pizza will be the star of the holiday party. 
Do give the same old gift as last year!  Be the creative person who gifts a chocolate pizza :)

Zonderkidz holiday books for the family

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review All opinions are my own  
We are less than 2 months away from Christmas!!  I cannot believe it is that close.  One of the things my boys and I do during the holiday season is read Christmas stories, we have one huge book that talks all about traditions and who does what around the world, but after several nights my boys get bored with it.  Don't worry though thanks to ZonderKidz we are now upping our Christmas book collections!!  Check out all the great title below and the best part if they are books my kids can read, so now I am not the only one reading :)



In The Berenstain Bears Go Christmas Caroling, the whole Bear family is invited by the Bear Country Carolers for a round of Christmas Eve caroling. Join Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey as they venture out together in the snowy, cold night to travel from door to door singing Christmas classics.

 

A Christmas Gift for Santa, A Bedtime Book shows a different side of the Christmas story. When Santa Claus returns home after delivering Christmas presents to all the boys and girls, he wonders if he too will receive a gift.


 

From Grammy winner Michael W. Smith comes Merry Christmas, Nighty Night, a cute and cuddly padded board book in the familiar, soothing cadence of the Clement Moore classic poem “The Night Before Christmas” that tells the story of the Nighty Nights helping their friends Cole and Rose snuggle in for a silent night on Christmas Eve.


In this follow-up to the blockbuster hit Fiona the Hippo, based on the internet sensation from the Cincinnati Zoo, join Fiona and her loveable animal friends for a heartwarming holiday romp through the zoo in this fun and whimsical picture book.  This is the perfect Christmas read-aloud for fans of Fiona (and hippos!) everywhere who are looking for a book with a sweet holiday message of love for others.


In Mouse’s Christmas Gift, written by Mindy Baker and illustrated by Dow Phumiruk, one tiny church mouse must find a way to bring Christmas spirit to his little town when Parson gets sick and the usual Christmas Eve service is cancelled. Mouse never gives up hope as he prepares the nativity set and lights a small candle in the window to signal the villagers. Mouse’s small act of faith sparks a chain reaction of hope and love, demonstrating that even the smallest creature can make a big difference. This adorable book, with a cover adorned with foil and glitter, captures the spirit of Christmas and the joy of doing for others during the holiday season.
That night, on Christmas Eve, a small group of villagers gathered in front of the darkened church. Mouse peered out the window and his heart began to pound. They came!

DC Showcases Must-Have Books For Holiday Season

Disclaimer:  I was given products in the post below for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review
My family and I love watching movies.  We have movie night once a week and every night before bed my youngest son and I watch part of movie (he gets so mad when I push pause and tell him we have to wait until the next day to watch more)  But what you may not know, about my Quinn, is he is addicted to super hero movies.  I take all my movies out of their cases and put them into cd holders.  We had to get him his own cd holder because he has so many super hero movies!  With that being said 2 years ago I turned his world upside down when I informed him that all his movies were based off comics.  Since then we make biweekly visits to our local comic book shop!  They know us by name now.  Yes you read that correctly my kids beg me to take them book shopping 
I was recently offered a chance to review 2 comics, do you know how hard it was to pick 2!!!  I have a feeling it is only a matter of time though until we own them all.  
Dc is offering a lot of great comics for the holiday season.  And they have something for all ages.  My boys are not the most enthusiastic when it comes to reading, but when they get a new comic they cant read it fast enough.  As a long time comic book reader I love that I can share this with them.

My review 
So I myself did not sit in this chair, but my son did and he loves it! He uses it for playing games. For movies he says he can't really relax in it, so maybe not the most comfortable?? It is made durable so I don't need to worry about it falling apart. The material is also durable and easy to wipe down, we didn't have any spills as of yet, but when we do I think they will be easy to get rid of. And of course my little guy just can't get over the fact he has a chair that is just like mine, well okay my chair doesn't have a super color Lion King Simba on it, but it does have the same built!
