Planning ahead: The bottom line as the kids grow up

It seems many moons away, but the day that the kids up and leave home is one that's closer than what you might realize. It's something that sneaks up on us and hits us in the face and while there is obvious emotional impact to consider, today let's take a look at some of the more practical aspects.

Vampirina Spin Go Round Game Review

Wonder Forge, the award winning game company sent us another game for little kids. It is their Spin Go Round style game with a Disney Jr. Vampirina theme. This game is described as a twist on bingo where each player gets a spinner and you pass them to the next player when someone lands on a Spin Go Round. You match your cards to color, pattern, shape or character and the first to get 3 or 4 in a row wins. Since it was for ages 3 and up and it was only supposed to last 15 minutes, I figured my nearly 2.75 year old could try it...

Banned Words Game Review

Wonder Forge sent us this thought provoking game called Banned Words. It is for ages 12 and up and it is a team game for 4 or more players. Each team has 90 seconds to predict words that they think the opposing team will use for their teammates to guess the target words. One player on each side gives clues so their teammates can guess the target words. If they say the "banned words" the other team gets a point.

Silk Plants and Floral Decor that Work Beyond the Holidays

I love decorations that can look great for the holidays but could potentially stay up all year round. Silk Plants Direct was kind enough to send us this faux topiary that I thought would be perfect for our front porch. We lit it up for the holidays but I could see it working long past the post-New Year.
