Carving Pumpkin Prayer

Dear God,

As I carve my pumpkin help me say this prayer:

Open my mind so I can learn about You;
(Cut the top of the pumpkin)

Take away all my sin and forgive me for the wrong things I do.
(Clean out the inside)

Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(Cut the eyes out in heart shapes)

I'm so sorry for turning up my nose to all you've given me.
(Cut a nose in the shape of a cross)

Open my ears so your word I will hear.
(Cut the ears shaped like the Bible)-we did rectangles

Open my mouth so I can tell others You're near
(cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)

Let Your light shine in all I say and do! Amen.
(Place a candle inside and light it)

Be safe, be smart

She lived in the woods in a small cabin with her twins for about 15 years without the comfort of electricity or running water In 1989 Roxanne and her partner Burt started a company which combined pure ingredients, natural formulas and earth friendly packaging this small cottage company has grown into an international company and is known as Burts Bees. In 2003 Roxanne sold the company and with the proceeds she started a nonprofit organization to support the environment and the arts as well as a foundation that owns and operates 70,000 acres of wilderness in North Woods of Maine. Shortly after Roxanne desired a new challenge and found it in children's clothing.

Pop On Pals Review

My mother always made sure that when I was younger there were plenty of great toys for me to play with that would help to build my imagination. When my children were small I did the same favor for them and now that I am a grandma there is no difference i want princess and the prince to have every chance to have as much fun with their imagination as I did. Pop on Pals can help build their imagination in their early play years. Pop on Pals is a wonderful world of fun pals, pets, vehicles and playsets. The fun never ends with the variety of mix n match fun that Pop on Pals provides. Children can imagine being anything that they want to be from a fireman to a musician, from a princess to a baker, or a puppy to a ballerina the fun will go on and on. Pop On Pals stimulates imagination and helps to build motor skills and is recommended for children between 2 and 4 years old.

Pop on Pals Amusement Park is the product that we were lucky enough to be able to review. Upon opening the box I wondered how much fun this would be for Princess. It looked like it was a toy that would be played with for a few minutes and then be done with and move on to something else. To my surprise it was not. She loved being able to manipulate the pudgy little Pop On Pal character. Best of all to me was that we could share this together because while she was playing we could talk and whenever she needed it I could help her. The set included 1  Pal, 3 Pop-On Mix n Match, Amusement Park-Themed Rings, 1 Amusement Park.

Our Review: The Pop on Pals Amusement Park would have been a whole lot more fun had the set came with more than one pal. While pals can be bought by their selves I still feel that having more than one pal would have been more fun for not only Princess but me as well. The playset has many different things that can be done by the pals where they can be in more than one place. Two pals would have been more fun and even provided more imagination skills. We did love the Pop on Pals Amusement Park and I believe we will build on to the collection. This could be something that Princess and her soon to be brother could both have lots of fun with.

Buy: you can purchase the Pop on Pals Amusement Park, other Pop on Pals and kits such as an Airplane, School Bus and Mix & Match Pal Sets at Toys R us, Target, and online at Amazon.

We received the Pop on Pals playset for purposes of review from Team Mom and Pop On Pals/Spin Master The thoughts and opinions shared on this post are those of mine alone others may have a different opinion and that is fine as well have our own opinion.

Moon Dough Review

Princess loves animals and is learning to make many of their sounds. My nephews and niece love to create and use their imagination so to me there is no better toy to have than something that makes them all happy. The Moon Dough Barn does just that. Best of all Moon Dough is not like any other clay because it is what some would call magical. Moon Dough is soft, light, wheat free and non drying which means that it should last longer and even children with wheat allergies can play with it. Yeah!!! More fun for all. Moon Dough is available in a rainbow of colors including blue, white, yellow, green, orange, purple, red and pink With that many colors ones imagination can't help but to go wild. Moon Dough is intended for children ages 2 to 4. There are several play sets available from Moon Dough as well. These play sets include a diner where burgers and fries can be created, a puppy play set where a puppy and all his needs can be created, a pizza play set where a pizza can be created, and the barn featured above where all sorts of animals found on a farm can be created. Best of all because Moon Dough never dries out it can be played with over and over again.

The Moon Dough Barn came with Magic Molding Barn, fence mold, hay mold, play mat, 10oz bag green moon dough, 10oz bag yellow moon dough, 10oz bag blue moon dough It was plenty enough supply to create an afternoon of great fun. It was great fun to turn the crank and watch a surprise come out of the barn. Remember the surprise of the Jack In The Box and how fun it was? Just think about creating a whole barn yard of animals, hay bales and having lots of fun.

Our Review:
we felt as if the moon dough was fun to play with and that the dough itself was fun to squish and play with. However when we tried to create our own shapes without the molds it was not as easy to do. The clay itself felt like marshmallows and when the Moon Dough was used with the barn play set it was fun to see the shapes that were created. These shapes stayed together well and we had loads of fun.  

Buy: Moon Dough is available at Toys "R" Us, Target, Walmart, Kmart,, A.C. Moore, Michaels and e Toys. The Moon Dough Barnyard retails for $19.99.

Extra Cheesey Grilled Cheese

One of the first things that my kids learned how to cook their selves was grilled cheese. I find grilled cheese easy to make, fits great into many budgets and can stand alone with chips or accompanies a bowl of soup on soup and sandwich night

1/4 cup butter, softened

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
8 Italian bread slices
4 (3/4-oz.) provolone cheese slices
4 (3/4-oz.) mozzarella cheese slices

Stir together butter and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Spread 1 1/2 tsp. butter mixture on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 4 bread slices, buttered sides down, on wax paper. Top with provolone and mozzarella cheeses; top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides up. Cook sandwiches, in batches, on a hot griddle or in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, gently pressing with a spatula, 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted

Out Of Box Publishing game Pirate Versus Pirate game Review

My kids love sports and play them quite often. There are two nights for volleyball a week, add in exercise as a group two to three times a week, watching a sport event at least a couple of times a week and playing out in the yard you can see that my teens stay quite busy. What do they do when they are at home when the weather is rain, snow or ice? Well they compete some more by playing board games. Out of The Box Publishing is one of my favorite places to shop and find new games that are out because the games they carry are not only fun and creative but also often very educational as well

A bit about Out of the Box Publishing:
Out of the Box Publishing has the philosophy that games should be fun. We can all agree with that I think. They believe that games should provide delightful diversions to our lives and bring us together for purpose of entertainment. I for one can agree with this we can all use a break just a moment to relax in life and I love to come together as a family and do something fun. My teens love to compete but I must say that one thing that I taught them is that win or lose you treat the other side with respect and games are for enjoyment not for fighting over. The games available at Out of the Box Publishing are games that can be learned in minutes they are games that are to be played rather than reading directions for long periods of time and can normally be played in less than an hour. The games are colorfully illustrated which adds to the fun of playing and are easy to store as they have all been packaged smartly.  
Pirate Vs Pirate game
Pirate versus Pirate is a game designed for 2 to 3 players ages 8 to adult. Perfect for my teens who are normally tagged up with a sibling or friend. My youngest brother has a captured audience on his love of Pirates. It seems that he has turned my teens into pirate lovers of their own right. So when I was offered the chance to review Pirates versus Pirates I knew that my teens would love it.
Pirate versus Pirate is a quick game taking an average of 20 to 30 minutes to play. Perfect for my teens on the go who love to play games but do not have hours to spend on one. It is a new game just being marketed in 2010. The definition of the game as shared by Out of the Box Publishing is:
Three bands of pirates have discovered an island brimming with treasure. Conquer the island by capturing the gold and silver, or by eliminating the enemy pirates. Position your pirates carefully, enemies are all around and they are hungry for treasure!

Buy: the game Pirate versus Pirate which retails for around $24.99 and can be purchased at a retailer near you

In Other Words

In "other" words is a meme where a qoute of inspiration is shared and the group shares their thoughts on what the words means to them. Debbie from Heart Choices is hosting this week and chose the words from One In A Million by Priscilla Shirer

“The spirit of complaint is born out of an unwillingness to trust God with today. Like the Israelites, it means you are spending your time looking back toward Egypt or wishing for the future, all the while missing what God is doing right now.”

It is hard for us to break away from things of yesterday. I think it is human for us to want to go back to what life was before. When times get tough we often desire to go back to the way it was before. I can remember when I first was married and had young children. I was a young mother who often desired to go back to the way it was in my teenage years. I can remember loving my daughter yet wanting to do the things that I did before her. Her father worked a lot and was gone and I found myself alone many days. The bond between me and my daughter was strong then because she was all I had and that bond has remained strong since.
When I think about the times in life that I often desired what I had left not knowing what the Lord had planned for me. I believe it is only human to want to retreat to what we know rather than to walk through the wilderness of the unknown to find out what the Lord has planned for us. This also leads into another thought one of trusting out Lord with all. Often this is hard to do as we have no idea of what lays before us and full knowledge of what lays behind us. Whether it is good or bad it is familliar.
Have you ever seen times where you wanted to retreat to the known rather than to go forward into the unknown?
