Memories and Old Toys for New Kids!

We have always been a very sentimental family!  We take a ton of photos and often save items that are sentimental to us in some way.  I'm not a pack rat, so sometimes I have to go through what I have saved for my little ones to make sure I am not getting too carried away. Both my hubby and I have saved a few toys, books, and a couple stuffed animals that were important and well loved by us as children.

Cinnamon Apple Cider Adult Beverage

My hubby and I have always enjoyed the occasional adult beverage, so we often have the odd smidgen of some liquor hanging around the house. The other day we grabbed apple cider at the grocery store. As we were driving home my husband remembered that we still had some Pinnacle Cinnabon cinnamon vodka leftover, and suggest that the two might go well together.

My Father's Dragon - A Great Beginning Chapter Book!!

We finished reading this book to the kids not too long ago, and they absolutely loved it!

I had been looking for a beginner's chapter book, you know something that was easy enough for the kids to grasp, but still broken down into chapters. And, this book hit the mark!

It's actually a collection of three separate books that occur in chronological order.
