New Christmas Tradition!

This month has gone by so fast, and I guess it’s because I have been super busy. School is finally over for the year, Christmas shopping is done, and now it is time to relax! I was going to do a wish list this year, but my biggest wish was fulfilled by getting my girls everything they wanted. So this year I will pass on my wish list and have a nice one for next year. I think I have started a new tradition with my family. Every year I want the girls to have something home made from either me or their Dad. This year the present came from me. I made them both a “No Sew Blanket”. 

It was simple to do and so much fun, not to mention they are so soft and warm. I can’t wait to see their faces when they open them up. My youngest loves blankets and has kept, and still plays with all her baby blankets. So this will be something she likes. So as we count down these last two days, I want to tell all my followers and readers: Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I will post again before the New Year all about my Christmas, so keep a look out for it!

With 11 days until Christmas my girls are very excited! I still have a lot of shopping to do and not a lot of time to do it in!!
What would an update be without a little giveaway??
So I will be giving away to one reader a copy of the book “Everything Christmas”!
I enjoyed this book, it has everything from recipes to activities you can do with your loved ones on and before Christmas.  This would also make the perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer!

Hasbro Review and Giveaway: Cuponk and Girltalk { Ended}

What Shot You Got?

This month, Cuponk was named to the Toys R Us “Hot Holiday Toy List” and the Kmart “Fab 15.” Not a bad way to start the holiday season! We’d like for you to try this hot game and tell us what you think! Cuponk challenges players to come up with custom trick shots to show their skills and land the ball in the Cuponk cup.

My Thoughts: This game has been a big hit with my family. Girls and boys alike go crazy over this game. This game lets you get the competitive edge, but in a fun way. Watching the kids trying to get their own trick shots down is hilarious. This game is also not for kids, but adults as well who feel like a Kid at heart!

LOL Moments Shine

The giggles are uncontrollable when the Hasbro Girl Talk Games are out. These games are perfect for fun slumber parties and to keep those “lol moments” alive during the holiday season. Each Girl Talk game, including Dare Confetti, Sparkle Spots, and Sassy Sticks, gets girls and families talking, bonding, and laughing!

My Thoughts: This game brought back some memories for me. Playing this game with my little cousins and daughter made me remember back to the day where it was everything to go to a slumber party and play games. Whether it be truth or dare or just a simple board game. This was such a big hit with my girls that I have already bought a couple as Christmas gifts.

I was surprised to have these awesome extras in with the games. My youngest daughter loved decorating the tooth brush. We use Purell hand sanitizer all the time. The Emergen-C will come in hand this winter and I have yet to wrap presents so I haven’t used the Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller and refill back.  I’m excited for it, because I do a lot of wraping and I always want it to look neat a pretty!

Win It: Here is the best part! One of my readers is going to win the two games listed above and everything in the bonus pack!
