Home For The Holidays: Magneatos 72 Piece Set Giveaway CLOSED!


I love finding new toys for my kids to play with. A huge plus is when I find toys that are not only fun to play with, but are also constructive. Whether it be strategy skills that the toys teach, or any other type of useful skills. I love toys that my kids can learn something from while at the same time having fun! So when given the Magneatos 72 piece set from HearthSong.com to review, I was very excited to get it out for my son to play with. This set is so much fun. The pieces are big so there are no little parts for little ones to choke on like other magnetic building sets. The magnetic pieces are great for teaching the power of magnets and cause and effect, which are great skills to start teaching your kids at a young age! Then the fine motor skills they can pick up from building are also very useful. The bright colors are great, especially when you are teaching your little ones how to recognize the different colors! With this set there are a huge number of possibilities on what you can teach and do with your kids while playing!! Over at HearthSong.com they carry a huge line of toys and with all of the toys they carry, they keep the different stages of child development in mind as well as the different types of learning abilities that children may have, so you are sure to find the perfect present for any child over at HearthSong.com when shopping this holiday season!!! With that said, since we are in the holiday gifting spirit over here at Mommy Katie, the people from HearthSong would like to join us in the festivities by giving one of my awesome readers a Magneatos 72 Piece Set to share with a special child this holiday season!!!

Home For The Holidays: Candy and Snack Dispenser Giveaway CLOSED!


I love finding new items for my home, or as gifts for others! My kids love to eat the peanuts in the shell, they love to break them open and get the nuts out. We also like to change it up and give them pecans and walnuts. Another thing that we sometimes have around is candies in the same dishes we keep the nuts in. Something that I have been wanting is something more decorative and maybe even fun to put the nuts and candy in for the kids. But until I was given a Candy and Snack Dispenser from Plow & Hearth to review for my readers, I had no idea on what I was looking for. This dispenser is the answer! My kids love it. It is just like the candy and nut dispensers that my kids love to get goodies from at the mechanic's or the bank! The huge plus on that is that I know that it is clean, and my kids like that it gives them the same amount every time so there is no fighting over portions!! The top easily screws off so it is very easy to refill and the globe comes off easy for cleaning!! This is perfect for your candy treats, nuts or other snacks that you can safely put in the dispenser with out ruining it!! With holiday shopping on everyones mind, the people from Plow & Hearth would like to make things a little easier by giving one of my awesome readers a Candy and Snack Dispenser to use in their own home or to give as a gift to someone special this holiday season!!!!

Earth Cafe Cheesecakes




In my home we love sweets so when I am looking for goodies for my family, I want to find products that not only taste good, but are also good for your family. I am a huge cheesecake fanatic. I love it, but I know that my love for cheesecake is a passion that I have to overcome. That is until I found the amazing cheesecakes from Earth Cafe! I mean wow! I can get away with more than a taste and not feel guilty about eating some cheesecake! I know that like a lot of people out there, my husband being one, if you mention that it is a vegan product and that it is raw, he avoids even trying it. So I just told him that I got some really great cheesecakes and I needed his help with sampling some of it. To his surprise, he loved it! Of course I waited until he finished his piece and licked his fork and plate clean, to tell him that it was all vegan and that it was raw! He is not a small man and we are both aware that we need to be healthier. I am always trying to find new products that I can introduce to my family, that not only everyone will love, but are good for them! I am hooked! When I get my hankering for cheesecake now, I run to the Natural Grocers here in town and pick a flavor of the Earth Cafe Cheesecake. I can eat an entire piece and not feel guilty, or bloated for that matter! The cheesecakes from Earth Cafe are raw, vegan, wheat/gluten free, cholesterol free and absolutely amazing. Another huge plus is that they dont just make one flavor, there are several to choose from. You can order your cheese cake online or check and see which stores carry Earth Cafe Cheesecakes in your area. When you order online, the cheesecakes are shipped frozen and can be kept in your freezer for months, that is if you can keep a frozen cheesecake in your freezer that long without going insane!!!! From the freezer, you can thaw your cake or slice in the fridge then serve! These cheesecakes are just to die for and make a great dessert for any holiday meal or a wonderful present for the cheesecake lover in your life!!!

He can go in circles, zig zags, figure 8's that are programmed patterns! I know that this is going to make a great present this year for my little man, and the Follow Me Thomas will make a great present for any little man this holiday season or for any reason!!!

Lead Thomas on his way! When you point and move the light from the lantern Thomas follows along. Press the lantern’s buttons for programmed moves including a circle, figure 8 and zigzag patterns. Hear engine sounds and phrases as Thomas chugs along!
