Thank the troops with Shutterfly




Happy Veterans day to all.
It is. Amazing how many troops are gone and will continue to be gone over the holidays away their families.Over 1.5 million troops serve our great nation. Many of them will be overseas, in harm’s way, and away from their families over this holiday season. Our mission is simple—to send a thank you card to every American hero. To succeed we need your support. Just select a card from our 4 different designs, add a personal message (or photo) and click send. Shutterfly will print and ship your card to the troops at no cost to you. Well shutterfly has extended their thoughtfulness by sending the troops a card to show how much they appreciate their services.
Take a moment and send a card to a love one or to just a troop Member.



***This is a sponsored post written by me for  Shutterfly; however, all opinions are  my own.****

Sink it float


A week after Halloween I am ready to get rid of the candy. I am tired of my kids asking if they can have a peice and let's be honest, it's there and I am eating it. I need it gone.
So I found on Pinterest a sink and float activity with candy bars.
All you need is candy bars and a bowl if water.
















-our findings.... Kit Kat was the only one that floats.
The kids loved this experiment.

Dayspring devotional countdown

Every year around the holidays, I always want to do sometime of count down,but have never found the right one.
  When I read on The macs blog about the dayspring 12 day count down,I knew I wanted to do this one.
 This one we did at thanksgiving and I forgot to take pictures of the Christmas one.


What I like about it is that it is very easy and visual. It goes into enough detail,without going overboard.
  I love how the kids are so excited to open a drawer and read about the day and what it means. December is a month I wish I could just freeze. It goes by so fast and Christmas is over in a blink of an eye. The kids are so excited and they always like to see the number subtract for the countdown.
The hussle and bussle of the shopping and the crowds.Being surrounded by family, eating good food and then feeling so full.

 


 There is a drawer at the bottom of the calendar that holds the tiles for each of three holidays: Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. Based on the number written on each tile you place it in the corresponding number drawer in the countdown.



The picture on the tile matches the picture on the corresponding story page. Again, the storybook is perfect for preschoolers. There is a verse to read, a truth or something to pray for that day, and a question to ask your child.



   



At the end of the countdown, it shows a picture of the Holiday.
I cannot wait to get started. Head over to Day spring and buy one. It will be worth it.

What kind of devotional or count down does your family enjoy?
