Max Lucado's One Hand, Two Hands

We really enjoyed Max Lucado's One Hand, Two Hands.
I read it to my 3 year old and 6 month old the moment it came in!
The illustration kept the baby's attention as well as the colorful words.
It is a very short rhyming story so I would suggest up to 5 years old in age group.
It would also make a good book for a beginner reader to read to them self or sibling!
It has cute illustrated pages by Gaby Hansen.
Full of life and color.
With every Max Lucado book I love the Christian aspect of the book as using our hands for prayer.
The book also recommends to the child to help!
Help clean up thier room, feed pets, help mommy so being a stay at home mommy of 3
I can appreciate that!
It is a book that you can read over and over again and that children are excited to hear.
I really enjoyed the book as well as my children and highly recommend it for your home and it would also be a great gift idea.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

So, I think I am obsessed with House Party. I spend about 5 hours a day looking at my screen and hoping for a green dot! lol. I really do love it. We have not hosted a party yet but we have been selected to do a Clone Wars party. The boys are excited. The only thing is out of the 30+ kids I would like to invite I have to narrow it down to 8 but its free and it will be fun for them and me! They are gonna send action figures and a Battle board game so it should be exciting! The boys love to have friends over and people love free stuff so its a good way to get them over! They have printables that you can download such as crossword puzzles, word searches etc. so that adds to the entertainment as well.

I REALLY wanted the Fisher Price party for Tyleigh. They are sending 5 brand new toys to the host diapers and stackable toys for the guests. I have lots of family and friends with newborns and 6-12 month olds so it would have been fun but I think it is already full. I will know for sure Monday but I think we are out on that one. Oh well, can't get em all! If you have free time and enjoy having parties you should check out the site if you have not already. It is free to sign up and the applications do not typically take over 5 minutes to fill out so if you are selected it is well worth your time.

I usually apply for all of them being a mommy of 3 kids, 2 boys and a girl and a stay at home Mommy there is not too much we aren't interested in. My next hope is the Durex party!! It would be really fun. kinda like a bachlorette type party for all girls! I would like to get a motel room and make it a slumber party!!
They add new stuff usually at least every week!
Well you should check it out and let me know when you get selected for something and if you are a local reader invite me!!!! =)

Whazzz Uppp!!??

Hey everyone! Hope ya'll are doing well. I thought it was probably time to write a little since my last blog was July 27, eek!!
We have been busy! Not sure exactly doing what when or where but I know we have. lol. Keane started kindergarten 2 Mondays ago and he is enjoying it. Public school is harsh with those 7 hour days though. I think 8-12 would be okay myself but I guess I'm not the one to make that decision huh..? I just miss him ALOT during the day. Not only because he is has been home with me other than 3 day preschool last year but he is also a huge help with the other 2. Breck is bored! Its hard having a new baby sister and not a whole lot of Mommy attention!!! He has adjusted well though. Seeing how he went from Mommys hip baby to "middle" child all in 3 pushes! lol.
But anywho.. for the most part Keane is doing great.. other than missing him. lol. He is a true sweetheart and I am so proud of him!
I have also taken a strong liking to House Party. Have not been chosen but it is still fun to apply and hope! I think I will get one soon.. I can feel it in my bones. haha. We went to a PS3 Move party combined with Webkinz Jr. yesterday and had a blast! The kids got to try out the new PS3 system and even got to bring home Webkinz Jrs! Which are pretty awesome.. hmmm... I feel a review coming on? LOL. Thanks to my friend Angela for inviting us! She is a PRO-blogger!!
I have a couple books coming in to review. I think I am going to stick with Childrens books from now on. You can go to Booksneeze and get free books to blog about if you didn't already know! That's where I get mine! I like the site. They have alot of Christian inspired books for kids and adults!!
