Christmas Traditions, Sugar Cookies, and Domino Sugar

Disclaimer: I have not been asked or compensated to write this post. It is simply a cool resource I wanted to share with y'all!

I have always wished I could bake cookies. I love cookies, but never successfully make pretty cookies. Well, the Christmas Tbomb turned two, I decided I was going to learn, no matter how long it took. Since then, we have made and decorated Christmas cookies together. No matter what they look like, we take them to the family Christmas Eve breakfast. I think the family has come to look forward to them.

This year, I was looking for a new recipe and wanted to change things up again, but wasn't sure how to proceed. My Mother-In-Law come to my rescue. She had been reading Southern Living, as we all do, and came across an ad she saved for me, along with some cookie baking tips.

The ad directed me to this Domino Sugar website, and includes a recipe, tips, and cookie templates for these snowman cookies. It all comes in a pretty downloadable PDF all ready to go. I'm ecstatic to try these this year, and wanted to share with you all.

Happy Cookie Baking!

Perfect Camera Bag for Techies from #BangGood

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own.

As many of you know, I am a complete geek and I'm a paranormal investigator and bigfoot researcher. What does this mean? Not only do I carry several cameras, but a lot of sensitive equipment around with me and it must be protected. I can't have it being slung around in a bag banging into everything else. That would not be acceptable.

This is the best camera bag that I have used and I love that it is a backpack, that just adds to its functionality. The dividers are adjustable so that you can put your camera pieces or equipment the way you need. It is very versatile. The mesh pockets in the flap are perfect for cords and small accessories. The combination lock included is perfect to keep your items secure.

On the side is loops and mesh pockets, perfect or tripods, monopods, and selfie sticks. They are very handy, not only for transportation but to keep them handy during set up.

The material the bag is made of is of great quality and will last many years of heavy use. The dividers are sturdy and thick, allowing for maximum protection. I love that the lining is this awesome bright green (see below), making it so much easier to see the contents. This is the perfect camera bag for a techie, photographer, or any other person that has to carry equipment that needs to not be broke! It is even comfortable to carry. It is a medium sized bag, making it not cumbersome to carry, but the space is used wisely!

Backup and Store Files With PhotoFax & Hello Kitty

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own.


I don't know about you guys, but I think Hello Kitty is adorable. My daughter is obsessed with bows, causing her to be obsessed with Hello Kitty as well. You mix Hello Kitty with tech, and you definitely get my attention. 

I had the opportunity to try out this PhotoFast Hello Kitty Max (32 GB) drive, and I knew this would be an awesome soltuion. While it is made for apple devices, you can use an adapter and use it with android devices as well. You can use this to back up your photos and videos to your computer easily. You can also use it to store things you may need on other devices. For instance, I use it to store movies that keep the kids occupied, and ones that I'm wanted to watch. I just plug it into my tablet (with the adapter) and watch away. What a great solution. You don't have to take up all your device's storage with movies- just plug this gem in. 

This great little device boasts a high speed data transfer rate, one touch to complete full data backup, and easily backup personal social and networking site photos. You can even lock aps that you don't want to backup with the accompanying app. It is even small enough to take anywhere, so you can backup anytime you want. 

Bouncy Bands: A Lifesaver In My Homeschool

Disclaimer: I received a sample to try out. All opinions are my own.

Picture this: Sitting at the table with books, papers, crayons, and pencils spread all about. A 5 year old and a 2 year old sitting at opposite chairs with mom in the middle. After about 30 minutes of lessons, it turns into a zoo The kids get restless and so does mom! Imagine being able to add one thing to the homeschool area that will diminish all of that. This is not a fairy tale. Bouncy Bands to the rescue!

I posted to press release a bit back, and have been honored to try these bands out in my homeschool and even give one set to a child with major SPD issues. These have really helped both children, even my Tbomb with some mild SPD tendencies. Allowing your child to wiggle and move will help them sta concentrating longer and absorb more because they are not focusing on not being allowed to move. This is especially true with a 5 year old.

Most kids are very active, but when you add in other situations, conditions, or stresses, you generally get really active kids. Even when they are sitting still, they are thinking about moving and cannot concentrate. Even adults are like this. I concentrate better if I am clicking a pen, although it gets on the nerves of those around me. I am certain that Bouncy Bands would even help most adults. 

Bouncy Bands

Bouncy bands can be added to chairs, desks, and other things. I actually tried it out by putting them on Tbomb's bed rails for when he needs some cool down time. It worked brilliantly. You can use them in any way that your family needs, or in the classroom. You can purchase Bouncy Bands for chairs or desks for less than $15, and it is well worth it. Replacement bands are even available. 

I kept the chair set for Tbomb since we do school at the kitchen talbe, and gave the desk set to a family friend. He needed something to help out, and I'm certain that Bouncy Bands will be the solution he and his teachers are looking for. Let the kids move and fidget, all the while keeping the class in order and not distracting the other kids. This is simply a brilliant product. 

Book Review: Learn, Absorb & Praise Classic Collection, Scope and Sequence + #Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own.

As many of you know, I homeschool my children. One of the things I love the most about homeschooling is that I get the opportunity to work Bible study into their schedule and even weave it in with math, reading, science, and more. It is so amazing to see them get a concept and see their faces light up. This goes for core subjects, as well as with Bible Study. This past week, we learned about being filled with the spirit and when Tbomb got the concept after listening to "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High." To see his face light up and him explain how he felt in his heart, was priceless.

Kodabug listens and smiles along, and although I know she doesn't understand, she is learning a love of praise, the Bible, and prayer. Graham Blanchard, a Christian publisher, has a great collection of books for toddlers to learn about God with. The Learn, Absorb & Praise Classic Collection is one of their most popular, and I had a chance to review it with my little ones, and absolutely love it!

This Classic Collection ($26.97) include 3 amazing board books to help start your child out loving to learn about God. The set includes Jesus Shows Me, All of Me That You Can't See, and Mud Puddle Hunting Day. One of my favorite things about this set is that it comes wrapped in a beautiful casing that allows you to leave a personal note to the recipint. There is even a bonus- The Art of Gratitude, with tips and templates for a child to practice giving thanks. This is the perfect time of year to stress being thankful, when the world seems so greedy.

It is so easy to find books to expand an adult's understanding and love for God and Jesus' teaching. The resorces for children, especially very young children are lacking. Graham Blanchard has stepped in and made these books more available and with a wide variety of titles, your children will continue to grow in their love and understanding.

Graham Blanchard has recently published a document to help parents use these books to teach their children about God. The Scope And Sequence document is available as a PDF download and includes  the scripture, faith concept, nature/ science concept, animal kingdom, how the book relates to relationships, and even the symbols included in the book. Download the document here.


Would you like to win a copy of this set for your children, or other special child in your life? This is your opportunity. Just comment below and tell me either what you love about teaching children about God- or, what is your biggest challenge with teaching children about god. I'm so excited to hear from you. A winner will be announced Thanksgiving day! Be sure to include your email address, so that I can reach you if you win!
