Personalized to a ‘T’ ~ Wonderbly

We love to read in our home. From reading aloud to the kids, to reading our own books on our own time, to writing our own stories and then reading them! It’s a great pastime and you have already guessed, but I hope to pass on the love of reading to all of our children. […]

Drawing With Mark ~ GIVEAWAY! (3 WINNERS!)

NCircle “The Gumby Movie” ~ GIVEAWAY!

My kids’ interest in Gumby began when my parents brought home Gumby and Pokey toys from a holiday in the States. Naturally my boys had no idea who Gumby was……which is understandable considering Gumby was popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  But that didn’t stop my kids from playing with those cute bendable figures. 😉 […]

DK Discovery Day ~ Pick Me up Puppy ~ GIVEAWAY!

Puppies are one of those animals that are loved by almost everyone…and if you don’t love puppies that run around the yard, most of us still think they’re pretty cute in a picture book. *wink* We’re that kind of family…mostly. There are a few kids that beg for a puppy of our own every once […]
