School's out for Summer!

Seems like just yesterday I was buying school supplies for Back to school, and here we are, Summer is already here! Mabye it's just me, but the year is going by VERY fast, and although I'm glad it's time to turn off the alarm clocks for a few months, I sometimes wish I could hit the pause button because the kids are just growing up way too fast.
So every year I start out by making a summer plan for us, things to do, places to visit, and then, August arrives and I realize that we barely made a dent in any of our lists! But this year, will be different, I'm hoping! Something about this summer feels like it's going to be a great one, and hope the kids will think so too!
What are your plans for the Summer?

Need to start blogging again!!

So much time has past, I can't believe it's been so long since I've written a blog post!! Now that the move is done, I hope I can finally get back to blogging and reviewing!! Last night as we were eating dinner, my daughter asked out of nowhere, "Mom, are you still a blogger?" I asked her why and she said, because we haven't been getting any packages like we used to!! Well, I guess that means I've been slacking, lol!
I hope I can get back into blogger mode, and start entering the giveaways I've come to know and love so much!! If anything, I'd just like to start blogging again to keep track of the family things I love to share!!

Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters!! Review AND Giveaway!!

Recently we recieved a set of Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters to check out and play with, and I am excited to say, these are awesome!! My daughter had asked about the Moshi Monsters a few times and I wasn't too sure about them, would they be fun, or would they get opened and then put away barely played with?

Well, when we recieved the Bobble bots, my daughter couldn't get the package opened up fast enough!! Within minutes, she had the town set up and ready to go, and it kept her entertained for hours!! Weeks later, she's still playing with it and loves to add to the collection! I love that it is a simple toy, and the kids can use their imaginations to play and make up stories. Heck, even the dog loves it! Chasing the Bobble bots around has become a favorite past time!
Priced well and with a great variety to choose from, for boys and girls, Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters are a great gift for any kid! Make a Moshi Monsters town and there will be fun for days!!

Welcome to 2012...

Happy New Years! It amazes me how fast the year went by, although, it seems the past few years have just flown by. Mabye it's because I have kids, everything just seems to go way faster than in the past. Last night, my daughter and I were talking about New Years in the past, I always used to throw an awesome "kids" party for my sisters and cousins. I would have a theme every year, Fashion show, Talent show, Karoakee night, and then the best part was the prizes! Of course, being a total clearance aisle shopper, I'd go to all the stores a few days after Xmas and pick out the CHEESIEST prizes I could. Watching them open their "prizes" for being Best Model, Best Talent, etc, was just too much fun. I think we did our parties for 6 years, and then, the girls got older, started going out with their friends for NYE, and now, it's just me and the fam, and no matter how much I try to make it fun, it's just not the same! Not saying that blowing off our Party poppers and chugging our Sparking grape juice with my babies isn't fun, I just wish I could make it as fun as it used to be, for them!

And then, I also realized that MY baby, my son, is just growing up way too fast for me. At midnight he got a text, from his friend, a girl, but as he told us MANY times, she's NOT his girlfriend! : )  I sat here thinking how in a few years, he's probably not going to want to be with Mom and Dad on New years, he'll want to be with his friends, and that makes me sad... I want him to stay a kid forever, drinking that Sparkling grape juice, popping those poppers and hiding his phone from us because he doesn't want us to see who he's texting. I want to spend New Years with the 4 of us scrunched on our bed, watching movies, fighting over pillows because I hog them all, and laughing that our huge dog will always find a way to get on that bed with us even if his spot will have him half off the bed. I want my kids to remember these moments as I do, the moments I wouldn't trade for anything.

I hope everyone has a great New Years Day, not too hungover, and many great days in 2012!
