My Review:

At first I had a bit of a problem installing the product correctly.  The download link on the main site is for an earlier version, and the only updates are for the 7.0 version, which is the newest version.
I have heard that Total Defense strives on customer service, and I totally give a thumbs up on their customer service!  I chatted online with one of their customer service reps and he helped me wonderfully!  He completely understood what I was asking and he pointed me in the right direction.  He even stayed on chat until I had the problem fixed.  Here is my Chat Log!

Party City Costume Review & {Giveaway}

I was so happy to hear that I was able to review a costume for Party City.  For one, my 4 year old son needed a super cool costume for Halloween.  For two, I got to work with Party City; very nice people!buzzpackage
The costume I got to happily review was a Buzz Light Year costume with Buzz Light Year gloves.  My son LOVES Buzz! 

The Buzz Light Year costume from Party City was perfect!  The costume is very detailed and well made.  Not the type of costumes you would get for $12.99 at Wal-Mart, that only last ONE  Halloween!  Bright colors, just like the “real” Buzz, purple and green, with an awesome hood that is connected to the costume, just like Buzz with his helmet off.  The costumes also has a chest piece that is attached.  A cool feature the costume comes with are shin guards, which makes the costume look like your child has space boots on.  Not to mention, the costume also comes with attached arm guards.

Help Prevent Infant {Child} Abuse

Click For Babies. Call for Knitters!

Click your needles together to raise awareness for The Period of Purple Crying

You can make a difference and help raise awareness for The Period of Purple Crying by joining the Click for Babies knitting movement!  Right now knitters and crocheters across North America are making purple caps to be distributed to newborns during November along with information on this difficult crying phase. “The word Period means the crying has a beginning and an end.”

The aim is to have a hat for every baby born in November at participating hospitals.

By knitting and sending PURPLE newborn baby caps to be given to babies across North America, you will make a difference by:

Raising awareness for this life-saving project - Period of PURPLE Crying - Prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome

Participating in a growing, province-wide grassroots effort to educate new parents about the normalcy of early infant crying and how to cope with the frustration that can accompany it.

[Guest Post} by: Jenny Richard on Christianity

The Dust of Your Rabbi

There is an old Jewish saying, "May you be covered by the dust of your Rabbi." What it means is: "May you follow so closely behind your Rabbi in his travels that the dust he kicks up covers you." They weren't literally wishing you were dirty, but that you imitated your Rabbi, his habits, thoughts, and actions as closely as you could.

So how does this apply to raising children in a Godly way? We've all heard before that leading by example is key. But what leaves a lasting imprint is the motivation behind your actions. Rabbinical students desired to be like their Rabbi to the extent that one day they might be seen as the same as their Rabbi. So we must follow after Jesus with our whole hearts.

Only by living daily with Jesus, talking with Him often, soaking in His Word, living out the life He would lead if He were us, can we hope to root our children firmly in the foundation of Christ. In other words, we must live daily rooted in Christ ourselves, until our children know that we do as we say; that we live as we say.

Growing up at opposite ends of the economic spectrum, the two best friends remain strikingly different from one another in many ways. Solving crime never looked this good.

{Guest Post}by: Debra Chapoton on Youth ADD

Debra Chapoton is the author of several children’s books, a young adult thriller and a non-fiction work. Her guest post today is about Attention Deficit Disorder. Her books are available on Amazon at Please visit her blog at
Positive Attributes of Attention Deficit Disorder Kids
I have worked with ADD kids in my 30 plus years as an educator, but my main source of knowledge comes from first-hand experience with two of my four children. We studied books on the subject, visited doctors and had innumerable discussions. There are many ways to “deal” with this disorder, but this post will focus on all the positives that I have observed.


Sorry, I'm in the middle of a makeover!

{Pretty} Boy

Yeah, my husband is a 'pretty boy'.  The definition of a "pretty boy" is wide and many, but from where I grew up, "pretty boy" meant a boy/man, takes real good care of himself, dresses nice, makes sure every hair on their body is perfect, get my point.

On with my story...

One day he had gotten ready and put some of his cologne on, and I thought it smelled awesome, so I complimented him on his smell? Yeah, smell!  He grabbed me by the hand and showed me this awesome trick that makes the cologne smell better and last longer.  As a woman, I should have known this...

He takes UNscented lotion,puts some in his hand and sprays his cologne on the unscented lotion and mixes it together.  Then he rubs the lotion with his cologne mixed, on his arms, neck chest, etc.  He let me try it with my perfume and OMG!  I feel in Love with him all over again!  Plus, you use less perfume/cologne by doing this.  

Isn't this AWESOME?

{Play} Dead

This morning my boys caught a Cicada.  If you don't know what a cicada is read {This}.  Cicada's are real bad in Missouri this year, because they hatched after 14 years of being buried under ground.  You can read an article {HERE}, if you want to know more.  Anyways, the boys brought in this cicada this morning, on a leaf, and I told them to bring it back outside, since Cicadas "play dead" from predators.

The boys swore up and down the cicada was dead!  I ran outside to take a picture of the bug and it started moving and my son was freaking out!

Just thought I'd share a crazy morning with 3 boys and a "playing dead" cicada! :)

Back to School!

Summer vacation is OVER, finally!  My boys started back to school yesterday and my stress level went down from a 10 to a 2!

 My oldest son started middle school (6th), totally new to him.  There's lockers, combinations and he even has to walk to his classes.  He really likes 6th grade and told me it was easier than he thought it would be.

My 2nd oldest and my step son are both is 4th grade.  I requested them to be in the same class, so they have the same homework.  I really hope I did the right thing, and they don't get in trouble to much!  

My 3rd son started 2nd grade and he HATES school, always had.  Not too much to say about him, but he does like his teacher!

Now I'm home with the twins (4) and the baby (2), guess he's not a baby anymore, lol. Oh and a dog and a PUPPY, ahhhhhh! Can't wait til next year, I will only have ONE home!
