Christmas Box of goodies!!

Momselect and a few other companies sent me a super cool Christmas goodie box! Let me tell you everything that was in it.
1. Build-A-Bear Smallfrys

Okay my girls are WAY into stuffed animals and baby dolls. They really like to dress them up. So I am thinking this is a cute stocking stuffer idea!

2. Christmas Cakes from Little Debbie 

They sent the chocolate variety. Not only do kids like the taste, they are also in fun Christmas tree shapes! These are a must have in school lunches this time of year.

3. Sneaky Puzzle from Patch Products

I have to be honest. I have never heard of these. But they are SO cool! They are big enough pieces that Leah can do it with a little help from Mom or Dad.

4. Play-doh Mega Fun Factory
5. Play-Doh Shape and Spin Elmo

I will group these two together. You cannot go wrong with Play-Doh. I don't know if it is just MY kids or if they are all Play-Doh obsessed. My children play with Play-Doh on a daily basis. This is a Christmas/Easter/Birthday staple in our house!

6. Playmobil Child's First Day at School Kit

This is a cute little toy. It is cheap and fun for the little kids to stick in their pocket. I would say for the price this is a great pick for stocking stuffers.

7. Smart Mom Solutions

Finally, a stocking stuffer for Mom! You know all those annoying notes you have to write to the school? These are great! It is a convenient way to save a few minutes. They come with handy little envelopes. I think it is a neat idea!

I have been showing off the contents of the kit to Mom friends of mine. If you are Mom and you are interested in learning more about any of the products in the kit, please click on the link to see a little more about them. If you are local then I would love to show you all the goodies! I hope this gives my readers a couple of good Christmas present ideas!

Mega Blok Party

Momselect and Mega Blok sent me an AWESOME party pack. We had such a great time at the play date. All of the kids (and parents!) were excited that they were able to take a toy home with them. The kids played hard and the Moms got a great visit. My camera was MIA so I used my phone. Sorry for the blurry pictures. When my oldest daughter turned one, Mega Bloks was just a given for me to get her for a birthday gift. I guess I didn't realize the older kids would get into it as well. We had everyone from one year to four years old and they all had a blast! There were no fights over toys because they all got their own little truck or bus to play with. We put their names on the bottom with magic marker so they wouldn't get them confused. My kids crashed out after everyone left. I am pretty sure some Mega Bloks will be in Santa's bag this year, at least for my kids!! Leah and Lauren especially like the big bag of Bloks to build castles. Thank you Mega Bloks and Momselect for such an AWESOME party!!!

Who couldn't use a romantic dinner at home?

Myblogspark sent me an AWESOME dinner kit so that Jeremy and I could enjoy a date night without going out. It was just great! Jeremy and I have been married going on eight years and with three very small children at home, it is just plain hard to get out. They wanted me to share our first date with my readers. So here goes. Our first "real" date was in 2001. We went to Joe's Crab Shack in Michigan. It was really nice and REALLY expensive. At least we thought so at the time. :) Before we had kids we went out all the time. Like ALL the time. Now if we want to go out, we have to ask friends or hire a babysitter to watch the kids. Babysitters run about $10 an hour here. Okay so say we are out for three hours. That is $30!! Then if we go to a decent dinner that would be around $40. $70 for one night!!!!???!!! Heck no! Not anymore! We are on a shoe string budget. So we really really enjoyed having a date at home. For about $15-$20 you can have a nice dinner, restaurant quality, and enjoy each other without breaking the bank! They sent me a Wanchai Ferry meal and also a Macaroni Grill meal. Both of them were fantastic. I would have to say I liked the Chinese food a little better though. Both dinners were very easy to prepare.

MyBlogSpark, Macaroni Grill and Wanchai Ferry would like for you to be able to enjoy a date night at home as well. If you leave a comment you will be entered into a drawing to win the same kit I received. For additional entries, you can facebook, twitter or follow me for a total of 4 entries! Good luck! I will notify the winner on Friday, November 12th. Thanks for reading!
