What Bella Got for Christmas 2016

January 7, 2017

I know, I know. I’m late. It’s all good. Who doesn’t love pictures of kids opening their presents? . The night before Christmas, I gave her a few presents, one being this Movie Snack Kit that includes two boxes of M&M’s and three bags of popcorn.

What Bella Got For Christmas!

January 13, 2016

I am ridiculously late with this post, but it’s better late than never.  On Christmas Eve, we normally exchange gifts to and from each other. Unfortunately, due to Bella being sick, she was only able to open two presents before drifting off to sleep.

Christmas Recap: Bella Meets Santa Claus!

January 7, 2016

I know I am ridiculously late with posting this, but everyone in my household has been sick since before Christmas (and still are). I didn’t think we would make it to see Santa Claus, but we did…on Christmas Eve. I thought it would be more packed than it was, but we only waited approximately 5-10 minutes. I wasn’t close enough to hear her conversation with Santa, but I’m pretty sure…

My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas DVD Review

Am I the only one who prefers the original My Little Pony? Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a brony, and I could watch the new Friendship is Magic MLP series all day long.

VeggieTales Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas DVD (Featuring Si Robertson) Review

November 25, 2013

I’m about to show my age here. I grew up on VeggieTales. Every summer, my mom would enroll my brother and I into Vacation Bible School at our home church.

These are memories I will cherish for the rest of…
