The Latest from Leapfrog!

Hi friends!

It is no secret that we are huge Leapfrog fans around here. Like seriously...huge! So you better believe there was all sorts of happy dancing when this bad boy arrived at our house!


Yes, that's right...it's the new LeapPad PLATINUM! We have loved the entire LeapPad series, and this one steps up the game big time! The screen is bigger, the graphics are wonderful, and Abbey is out of her mind thrilled with it. I love that we can shop for new games right from the tablet, and Abbey loves searching for things on the kid-safe LeapSearch web app. Hooray for safe internet access! That makes this mama breathe a little easier.
The thing I think is super cool are these new Imagicard games...

You get this deck of cards that goes along with a game. Then, using the camera on the LeapPad the game has you scan the card.

That's when the magic happens!

Characters jump right off the card onto your screen. The game self-checks and corrects your kiddo if they need to choose a new card. It is so much fun! And the best part? You don't need a LeapPad platinum to play, any LeapPad with a camera will work! I love that LeapFrog is so careful to make sure that their games and toys are useful for a long time. Great for a family on a budget!

The other things I love is that even when Abbey has technically "out grown" a game, she still has fun playing them. She knows her numbers and shapes, this game is "too young" for her, but she still played it for 30 minutes today. It's still engaging, even once it is past it's target demographic. Again, thank you LeapFrog for games that aren't one and done!

Happy playing!

Hi friends!

So, you know you are a grown up when you get REALLY excited about a new vacuum cleaner. Am I right? This vacuum, the Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® is pretty much amazing. You wanna know why? This bad boy cuts the hair off of the brushroll ALL BY ITSELF! You guys....I die!

My Favorite Ethical Clothing Companies

Hello friends!

We live in a sad, scary world. There is no getting around that. Slavery is at an all time high. Like, in all of history, all time high! I see the numbers and it just all feels so overwhelming. Where do you even start? How can you even make a dent? I know that as a Christian I am called to serve the poor, the orphans and the widows. I want to do that! But where to start?

I am a firm believer in baby steps. Yes, sometimes people can dive in and make sweeping, life changing steps, but if we all just start moving in a better direction, change will come. There are a lot of different places we can start. Today, I'm focusing on what we wear.
