Laser Light Display!

Happy almost New Year!!

If you know us you know that we absolutely LOVE our Christmas lights. We go all out every year...it runs in the family! We are slowly growing our light stash and recently got this Laser Christmas Light Display. It is awesome. I couldn't get any great pics of it due to all the snow we got recently but here are some from inside before we put it out and one from Amazon.



We still use our normal Christmas lights and add this as an extra but they would also work great if you wanted to ditch the traditional lights all together. The lights are a stationary blue and green and the colors are very vibrant.



It comes with a sturdy steak to keep it from moving in the ground. They have a very good coverage range and even has a built in timer so that they will automatically turn off after 6 hours. These have been great for us so far and I can't wait to see what kind of things we do with them in the coming years.

Super fun bike lights!

My daughter loves riding her bike almost as much as my husband does. I couldn't say no when I found this 5 piece set of spoke lights from Uelfbaby! The price is amazing and I ordered through prime so they arrived super quick and with no issues!



I love that you can customize the colors. My daughter loves the color blue so she loves that she can light up her bike. She can't go too fast just yet and we only let her ride in the driveway at night but I love that this is something that can grow with her. We also like to hook them up to the wheels on the bike trailer.



Not only does it make it super easy to see at night but they also make it super fun as well! They are really fun on our evening walks and rides. I love how easy they are to use, how secure they are, and the waterproof construction. Definitely a must for bike riders, young and old alike!

Cookies and Milk Popsicles!

I have found a new favorite frozen treat. Cookies and milk pops! I recently got this amazing popsicle kit from Lebice and it's love. The price is fantastic for the quality. It comes with instructions and is very easy to use. On to the recipe!

Ingredients:
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
- chocolate chip cookies (chips ahoy works well because of the consistency and size)

Directions:
1) Put 2 cookies into each popsicle mold
2) whisk together milk and cream until frothy
3) Pour mixture over cookies and place popsicle sticks into place
4) Freeze until firm (about 5 hours or overnight)
5) Enjoy!

To get the popsicles out of the mold just run them under some warm water for a few seconds and it should pop right out. There are so many uses for these including fruit popsicles too! They are perfect for a hot summer day and I'm looking forward to a lot more homemade popsicle creations!

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps!

I know it's been a while but we are having so much fun this summer! We went to the market a few days ago and ended up with some zucchini and I just wanted to share an awesome recipe I found with you guys! It's for Zucchini Parmesan Crisps! The recipe was found here.

Ingredients:
- About 2 medium size zucchini
- 2 or more eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup panko
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- about 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (I used olive oil)

Directions:
1) Start by cutting your zucchini into slices
2) Put flour in a bowl, eggs in another bowl, and mix cheese and panko in another bowl
3) Heat oil in pan over medium heat
4) Dip zucchini in flour, then egg, then panko mixture
5) Cook in oil for about a minute on each side until crispy
6) Place on paper towel lined plate
7) Serve while hot and Enjoy!

I also used some Parmesan Italian dressing as a dip and it was delicious! You could also probably add some garlic powder into the panko to add some extra flavoring. I hope you enjoy these crisps as much as I did. What have you made recently??

ThinkFun...always thinking, always fun!

My daughter is fascinated with science and electricity so I knew she would love this new game from ThinkFun called Circuit Maze Board Game.

This is a really fun and challenging game! ThinkFun always has such fun and exciting games that keep your mind working and are super engaging. I love it. There are pieces in the game that you must arrange in order to create a working circuit to make different lights light up. Although my daughter is still a bit young for the game portion of this I really enjoy working with her and experimenting different things to get the circuit to work. Very educational and fun!

I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Captain No Beard!


Lately our daughter has been very head-strong and doesn’t understand why she isn’t right or has to sit in time out or etc. Recently we recieved this wonderful book called Being a Captain is Hard Work. This is a super cute read. The illustrations are great and I love the moral of the story in this book. Captian No Beard must learn the hard lesson that sometimes you are not always right. Sometimes you need to admit when you are wrong and trust in others. Most kids need to learn this important lesson. My daughter included.
It also includes a wonderful cloud key at the end of the book to help understand different types of clouds and the weather that is usually accompanied by them. A little longer than most children's books I’ve seen but definitely engaging to keep my daughter entertained. Another thing that I really enjoy is that it promotes imagination and creativity by showing that these were just regular kids exploring within their own bedroom. In all, my daughter loves it and it is one that we continue to reach for over and over. I received this book for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
