That's No Moon {3DLightFX Review}

Now that we're settled and mostly unpacked in the new house, the fun part begins--decorating our new house!

This time, we own our house, so my decorating options are much more intense.  We can paint, we can do any kind of wall hangings, you name it.  Since Ben has fairly new space themed decor, we're keeping his theme and adding on a little bit, including some Star Wars touches.  Our new 3DLightFX Death Star night light adds the perfect accent to his room.

Travel Fun with Parragon

We got the most awesome Book Buddies package from Parragon, right before we left Washington!

With a 20-some hour car trip ahead of us, plus a good week or so of hotel living, we were extra happy to get things that helped us pass the time--Design And Doodle: Create, Color, & Draw and Professor Murphy's Trivia Fun: 600 Questions for Big & Little Braniacs.

Holiday Classics from Parragon Books

One of our favorite holiday traditions has always been new Christmas books.

I started buying several Christmas books each year, beginning when my oldest was a baby.  At the beginning of December, we take them all out and at the end of the holiday season, they get put away with our Christmas decorations.  Even my now not-so-little kids reread the books each year and I still try to add a new title or two.

Brighten Your Room with 3DLightFX

We're in our new house now and doing a little bit of decorating!  The kids have kept their rooms fairly similar to our last house, but I definitely wanted to add a little bit of new fun here.

We fell in love with these 3DLightFX from Target/ and I knew the boy was going to need one of them.

Whittle Shortline Railroad {Review}

Are you looking for a great Christmas idea for the little boys in your life?  Or maybe some of the bigger ones who still appreciate model trains?  We have partnered with the Whittle Shoreline Railroad to try out one of their awesome train sets this holiday season.

Winter Fun with Steamboat Resorts

We are so excited to be back home in Colorado after our 18 months in Washington.  Even better, we are home in time for ski season, which we have definitely missed.  We've been getting all set for our ski vacations this year and love living where we can do day trips as well as long weekends.

Activity Adventures with Moana {Parragon Book Buddies}

We're wrapping up our adventures in the PNW and getting set for our own newest adventure back in Colorado.

This is why our Moana package from Parragon Books came at the perfect time!  We saw a sneak preview of the movie the week before it released and all 4 of us loved it.  Moana's adventurous spirit (and the fact that she is a Pacific Islander) made her a new favorite character at our house and we absolutely adored Dwayne Johnson as Maui.
