Carnival Fun- Knock Down The Cans

If you are a parent or even a babysitter you are probably already struggling, or about to struggle, with keeping the kids occupied during the summer. It is hot, there is nothing fun, to much tv is bad...........geeze they should make this easier on us.lol Well twice a year the carnival and fairs come around and there is so much there that the kids just LOVE to do! Knocking down the cans with a ball is one of those. I thought huh..maybe I can make something at home they can do like this. It was not only fast and easy but HOURS of fun!

Take some old cans, remove the labels and spray paint :O)
Now you can leave the cans plain as well if you want ;O) but I always have spray paint hanging around so I figured why not.lol You can even have prizes for the kids the dollar store is a great place to buy a bag of candies or small treats! Have fun and enjoy the summer!

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite! On the other there is the Girl Scout Trefoil, the symbol every Girl Scout knows and has pride in. My daughter is 5 years old now and I am so excited. In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
