In October, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brought us Smurfs: Legend of Smurfy Hollow. My family loves it! Now, just in time for the holidays, they bring us a great stocking stuffer! Smurfs 2!
My kids don't know that they have the movie already, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and every time they see the commercial for it, they ask to see it. Smurfs 2 came out to DVD/Blu-ray this week and I can't wait for Christmas morning to watch it with them.

With the coming of winter, most places are getting ready for snow and ice.
In Southern California, we don't see much of that unless we head to the local mountains. I love seeing the leaves change color, yes, even in California we get a few trees changing. From the beaches to the deserts, we still enjoy all of our winter activities.
One of our favorite traditions have been to head to the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary for their 2nd annual CHILL celebration. This year was better than ever! The adorable Santa's Village and Candy Town gives you that whimsical feeling that brings you to the North Pole.

It's that time of year again... What presents to get our children that they will enjoy for more than a week. With all the latest technology out, it is hard to get my children to use their creative sides.
I was was approached to review a new product out on the market this year that I think might just help. It is called Light Up Links. This new toy was just launched for Christmas! Don't worry, no batteries required! The motion of the mechanism creates its own electricity when moved around. Creativity? Think Tinker Toys with lights!

I consider myself and my family very grateful to have a roof over our heads, food on the table, clothes on our backs, books to read, and a few extras for bonuses. I want my children to understand how lucky they are to be blessed with good health and families that love them above all.
