Billy Fun Wheels Review

It's count down time as Christmas is fast approaching. Do you have in mind what you will get your little ones? If you have a little one that loves cars then this might be something for you to consider when you are out and about or even online shopping.
Let me introduce you to Billy Fun Wheels...

Billy is such a great toy for ages 2 years and up. Billy has even won the "2009 Best Picks" from Dr. Toy award. Billy's remote is actually a stirring wheel so it's easier for your little ones to control it. It makes engine sounds and his head lights even work. You little one can even honk Billy's horn. Our little man just loves it, I know it's not just another remote control truck either. It helps him to understand which way the truck is headed, see on the steering wheel remote it lights up which way the truck will go.

Billy is a great pick for your little guy for Christmas! You can easily pick up one online at: Diapers.com, ToysRUs.com, EToys.com, or Rightstart.com.

Disclosure: I was in no way paid to write my review. This review comes from my heart! I have a meterial connection because I received a sample of Billy Fun Wheels for consideration in preparing to write this content. I am not expected to return this item after my review period.

Wonderful Nursery Decor.....

A couple weeks ago I told you that I could not wait to share with you this wonderful website that I had found. It's CSNbaby.com, a online specialty store and it has any and everything that you need for your baby. I just love the nursery decor selection that they have. They have everything covered from the smallest items such as lamp shades to rugs and even bedding and mobiles. They have so many unique things that I have never seen before.

This site has great gift ideas for baby showers and even Christmas. With Christmas approaching you might find something special for that little one. While looking on there site I came across two wonderful products that I have never seen before and could not wait for Chandler to try them out!

The first being Boon Frog Pod Bath Toy Storage it is a must have for all those bath toys your little ones have!

I tell you it's amazing how many toys it can hold and on the top it has room for me to store his body wash/shampoo and you can even hang a sponge or two from his toes. ;o)
It unsnaps from the base and I can scoop up his toys and just snap it back into place and then the toys can just drain back into the tub and air dry. Before I received this frog, I was using one of those nets that holds toys and fighting it every time I had to add a toy to it. The net would come undone from the wall, etc. With this frog there are no problems what so ever!

The second item was Edushape Rolliphant Toddler Toy, this toy is wonderful as they can use in the bath tub or just out on the wall.

This toy is so neat because it helps build our little one's fine motor skills. Chandler is almost 16 months old and he will play and play with this toy, till his water starts getting cold. ;o)

These items are so unique, they are not in my local stores, such as Wal-Mart or Target. That's what I love about CSNbaby.com, they have the unique things that other stores do not have.
I hope that you will go by their site and check out what they have to offer, esp. for the up coming holiday season!

Disclosure: CSNbaby.com did provide me the items above for me to review and keep, but I was in no way paid to write my review. This review comes from my heart!

Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful for my husband, Brad. Brad is truly my best friend, we have been together for going on 13 years and have been married almost 11 years. Brad is my sole mate and I thank God each day for sending him to me so many years ago. Those years have flown by in a hurry, they have been field with many up and downs but they have all been worth it in the end. We learn from each of these up and downs and grow as a couple.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for sending Brad into my life. God knew what he was doing and still does. We sit and talk about things we want to do when our nest is empty, places we want to go together. How we will enjoy our grandchildren one day. ;o)

I love to look over a Brad and just stair at him, I always get this little grin from him. One that says Cin I love you. It just melts my heart. Out of the almost 11 years that we have been married I have only spent maybe 5 nights away from him and I can't stand it. I don't sleep, he tells me he can't sleep. I am connected in every way to him and love him more than he will ever know.

One thing that I feel that is very important to me is my marriage, my marriage comes before my kids. Don't get me wrong, I love my boys very much, God is 1st then my marriage. I truly believe that if your marriage does not come before your kids, then how will your marriage (family) stay together?

Thankful Thursday

Today is my Thankful Thursday, I am starting this as something each week I can share on thing that I am thankful for in my life. I am not going to do this just because of the Thanksgiving holiday coming up. I am going to do this because there are so many things in my life that I am thankful for, not just for one day or even one month a year.

My first thing I am most thankful for is my salvation! I was 14 at the time that I was saved and it was an amazing experience. One that I will never forget long as I live, it was not at a church, but instead it was at a football stadium, the Panthers Stadium. Our youth group had went to see Billy Graham preach and it was the most amazing experience in my life. The power of the Lord come over me and I went down on to the field with my mom and spoke to a person down there. I tell you it's one of the best feelings in the world to know that I am forgiven!

Now since that time I have not led the best christian life, I will be the first to admit it. I had my son out of wed lock at the age of 17. I have since married Devon's the father, actually before our he was born. We have been married going on 11 years now. You know though, God is a forgiving God. I know that I have been forgiven and that one day I will meet my heavenly father and see the streets of gold. I will also get to see all the ones that have went on before me. What a wonderful day that will be, to see my grandmother, my other mom. :) Oh there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about her and miss her dearly. I know where she is at and I can't wait to see her again someday.

It's important for me to explain to my children about God and let them know how important he is. I know that is something that I learned and I want to make sure that I pass that on to them. Too, I want them to know as they get older, and get married. They as husband and wife need to put God first! This is one important thing that I learned from my mom and I truly believe in it. I truly believe that marriage is hard work, very hard work. At the age of 17 I learned quick how hard it truly can be. Marriage is something that you have to take day by day and trust that God is guiding you. The foundation of your marriage is built on God.

With anything that you do in life, if you turn to God, he can see you though anything. As my aunt Lois use to tell me when I was little, this verse:

Luke 11:9- "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

Small Things

As I finished up my lunch, changed my clothes and started out the door. I could not believe how pretty it was outside. It's November 2nd and I live in the High Country of North Carolina, where is the snow and wind? Well let me rephrase that I will say at least the wind?

As I kept walking and noticed so many different things, things I never pay attention to much. The leafs are pretty much gone, I noticed a few hanging on still. They are hanging on for dear life, taking in those last moments connected to life as they know it. The sun was shining down and the crisp cool fall mountain air blew across my skin. What's that ahead of me that I see, it's a baby woolly worm. My goodness it's so small, come to think of it I have not seen a baby one since back in early October. Wonder why he/she is so small still? As I walk on up the path, I see a bigger one and it really makes me wonder why that one was so small. However, I know it's all part of Gods plan why it is so little.

As I continue my walk, I notice the children playing on the local playground. They are so innocent and full of life. They have not a care in the world, just to have fun. I notice all the cars going here and there and wonder if anyone else is seeing life today like I have. All the small things in life, the things that most people don't notice or shall I say take the time to notice. This is one of my steps to a better me, a better Christian, to take the time and enjoy the small wonders that God has given to us.
