World Vision Holiday Event

Whether it’s for the tax deduction or the warm fuzzy feeling you get from giving to someone in need, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation over the holiday season. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a survey reported in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
With so many worthy causes, it is difficult to know where the gift can best be used. Gifts to the WorldVision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
Please consider the unique, life-changing items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog as you start, continue or even complete all of your holiday shopping. Here are a few suggestions we would like to offer you:

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about Christmas! {review and giveaway}

The Booper was delighted to have the chance to help with this review of  The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about Christmas! This fun Christmas DVD was sent to us for review from Ncircle Entertainment, and we couldn't wait to pop it in and watch. After Thanksgiving we were ready to think about all the joys of Winter and Christmas.

There is something magical about all things Christmas and The Cat in the Hat has some magic of his own. Put the two together and you've got an explosion of whimsical bliss.

Nick and Sally are ready to party with the Cat and his friends, and all is fun and games until they realize one little reindeer has got off at the wrong home. They have to work together and put others feelings before their own to help Ralph find his way back. With each problem that comes, I watched the Booper eyes wide with wonder as Nick and Sally work together to get the Thing-a-ma-jig back up and running.

Storage Solutions

I don't know about you, but sometimes when I'm out shopping in those fancy home stores, I can go a bit crazy. I tend to buy beautiful things for our home that are great in theory, but when it comes to putting those items to use in the real just doesn't work.

When I'm in the serving ware department I start day dreaming of myself as the woman who loves having dinner parties, and as the hostess with the mostess. Don't lie. You know you've been there too, looking at a piece of cookware or gorgeous serving platter, you can just see yourself passing it around your dining table as your guests coo in delight. Then you buy it, bring it home, and you're stuck with the task of figuring out where in the world you are going to store a huge serving piece you might use once a year. Am I right? You know I am.

In finding a place for everything, and trying to keep everything in it's place, I've found our small kitchen to be quite a challenge. I have so many serving pieces and so little space. One of my favorite things and my biggest storage challenge was my pedestal cake stand. I got this piece for a steal during a great clearance event.

FootBall Fan In Your Family? NFL Bedding Sets

We had so much joy when finding out our baby was going to be a boy, and I couldn't wait to go shopping to find the perfect room decor. Wanting to welcome him home to something inviting that would grow with him for a while I chose a forest animal theme bedding set.

 Now that the Booper is getting older I will probably let him choose the next bedding and decorations for his room. Being a football loving family I know at some point he will want nfl bedding sets which will be fine with me. My only question is: What team will he pick? My husband is from New England so he loves the Patriots, but he has always been a fan of da Bears at the same time. Being from Indiana I have to cheer for my Indianapolis Colts. If neither of our teams are playing we always cheer for the underdog.

Educational Toys Planet-Mixed Up Pets Review

 Always on the hunt for great toys I recently discovered Educational Toys Planet. I was amazed by the all their categories and ways to search for exactly what you're looking for. At educational toys planet you can search for a toy, by age, gender, type of play, or by subject. The selection in each category is impressive.

I loved learning more about educational toys planet, and what makes them tick. Founded in 2002, they saw a need for a source of toys designed to bring joy to children while enhancing their ability to think, analyze, and create. Each and every toy on their site is hand picked to help develop skill sets from the newborn on to older children.

The Hospital for Special Surgery Blog Tour

When I first held our little Booper in my arms I dreamed of each of the milestones I would watch him accomplish as he grew. As time passed he had his first smiles, first words, and many other first time experiences. I was always talking with other parents and reading anything I could get my hands on, because I wanted to make sure our son was developmentally on schedule. When the Booper wasn't walking by his first birthday I started to worry that maybe something was wrong. At his one year check up, I talked with his pediatrician about my concerns with him not walking. His doctor assured me he was right on track, and every child reaches their milestones on their own time frame he was doing all the things he should be.

Our pediatrician encourages us to keep an open conversation going with any concerns about the Booper's health and development. I recommend finding a doctor who listens to your concerns and never rushes you out with out validating your concerns. Having an open and honest relationship with your doctor is the best way to care for your child. 
Before long our little guy was running through our house, climbing on everything, and now learning to jump with both feet off the ground! We have been fortunate to not need specialized care for the Booper, but not all children are born with disabilities or special needs unfortunately in life accidents can happen. When an accident happens that leaves a child in need of specialized care or even surgery, where do you turn for help?  I would start by asking our regular doctor, then research to find the experts that would be best able help our little guy. When it comes to finding the people I would want to care for our son, I wouldn't want anyone but the best. Just like any parent, right?

Joovy-Foocot Review

 As a mom I worry about everything a lot but worrying about the Booper's sleeping habits has been an issue since he was born. The questions that always go through my mind are: Is he sleeping enough? Is he comfortable? Does he feel safe and secure? With a husband that used to work swing shifts and now works straight days, our family's sleeping patterns have had to change to fit our lifestyle. Changing your sleeping habits is hard when you're an adult but even more so when you're a child. The Booper's sleep schedule has gone through a lot of phases. I always want him to sleep well, feel safe, and be comfortable no matter where or when he's trying to sleep.When I was looking at the great products at Joovy I looked first in the Sleep category. Since sleep is a big deal in our house, I was immediately drawn to the Foocot child's cot. We received the Foocot in Blueberry blue, it also comes in several other fun colors!
