I just love the fall and all the comfort foods that come along with it. The comfort foods even make the snow a little more tolerable, I did say a little. lol This is one of my favorite squash recipes and I make it frequently for the family because it’s so good and it’s one of the only ways I can get them to eat Acorn squash. It has a wonderful fresh fall flavor that they just can not resist!
The Acorn squash will make a great side dish to any meat or dish that your serving. They may give you a funny look at first like what is that! However, once they taste it the squash will win them over. It has a unique fall flavor that they are not going to want to pass up.
2 Large Acorn Squash
3 Gala Apples
1-2 tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp Apple Pie Spice
3 tsp Honey
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
You will want to cut the Acorn squash in half and remove the seeds. Then place the apples inside and then add the rest of the ingredients. Place 1 cup of water into the pan and then cover the pan with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes till a fork can be inserted into the squash and it’s soft.
Serves 4-6 people
Having children who are special needs is such a blessing but it can also be a lot on the kiddos as well as the parents to find others who are in the same area as they are. It’s so beyond helpful to have those people who understand those not so good days and that can celebrate those great days with you as well. However, parents hold on for a minute because I am so excited to tell you about Wolf + Friends app where you can connect with other parents and kiddos that have the same special needs as your child.
We normally do not cover apps but when I saw this app, I had to share it with you all. I know the struggle of having people around you that understand where your going through, that can understand what your going through, what your child goes through, and having a support system of other parents. That can mean so much. I mentor other parents at the hospital that my son’s go to when their Dr’s request me to give them a hand. That support means so much to them, and so I really think this app could be a great way for kiddos to make more friends, parents to have a friend who understands everything about them as well. This could be a great way to meet so many new people right in your backyard.
In a judgement-free space, members will create a peer to peer support system via direct messages and group chats, making connections with new friends and mentors. The community will also have access to a curated content feed where they can read relevant news, shop stylish and developmentally appropriate products, and get lifestyle tips from occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, child psychologists, behaviorists, financial advisors and other experts.
The Wolf + Friends app is designed for moms to connect with like-minded women in their neighborhoods who are also raising children with special needs such as autism, anxiety, ADHD, sensory processing issues, developmental delays, mental health issues, down syndrome, and other learning differences. This app could be a game changer for many parents. It is available on the app store only at this time. Head over and check it out and see what you think of the Wolf & Friends app.
I received a photo canvas from Canvas On The Cheap to review for our blog. I chose to do a photo collage of pictures instead of doing just one photo. So I used Canva for photo collages to create the photo collage that I used for my canvas from Canvas On The Cheap. I used about 8 photos to create my photo collage of my daughter, her boyfriend and my two beautiful princesses. I couldn’t wait to see the completed canvas.
I have to say that I had so much fun creating the canvas. I was a little worried that I would have a hard time using the Canvas on The Cheap website. However, it walked me right through the site and it was really easy to use. I loved how easily I could upload my photo and I could create my beautiful photo canvas. It literally took me just a few minutes to create my photo canvas and preview my canvas. I just couldn’t believe how easy it was to make and I fell in love with my photo canvas that I made. I couldn’t have been more happy to receive it and it was so beautiful!
Now , I have to tell you that I also love the prices on Canvas On The Cheap! They would make a great gift and you can stay within your budget as well! You can purchase the perfect photo canvas for everyone on your Christmas shopping list. It will even be great for the hard to buy for people on your list. It’s also a great time to get a photo canvas done of your family photos that you have done or a favorite fall family photos. The options are just endless! I can tell you that everyone on your Christmas shopping list will be thrilled to receive a photo canvas!
I have to say that I’m going to be getting the family all together to get some fall photos because I want to have another fun fall photo for my living room. I am also going to be having some made with my son’s when they met some Disney Channel movie stars. I want them to have them in their bedroom and also as a keepsake so they can show their children when they have them. I know everyone else has some great memories, family photos or other photos that will make some great photo canvas’s and great photo canvas gifts.
The EdenPURE OxiLeaf arrived and it couldn’t have been better timing since we were sick. I opened the box and saw this adorable little leaf. I read the easy instructions and plugged it in. I turned the dial and you could smell it smell it starting to work. I wanted to try to keep the germs to a minimum so that we could get over this cold.
My son’s could smell the EdenPURE Oxileaf working as well. It has a wonderful clean scent and you can adjust it to what your family likes. I love that you can adjust it because some scents can be over powering and you can’t adjust them. You can get the perfect amount for you and your family. While purifying your home, killing germs, freshens the air, and helps with your allergies and other respiratory conditions as well. It’s so easy to use that even my son’s can adjust the dial if I have to run to the store. My older son is very aware of scents and most bother him but he doesn’t have an issue with the Oxileaf.
I have two son’s who have very low immune systems, my youngest son has Asthma and the boys have allergies as do I. So when the EdenPURE Oxileaf is perfect for all their needs! It has really cut down on my son’s watery itchy eyes, his sneezing, and keeping germs at bay so that we have less worries of people coming over and getting my son’s sick. It’s really been so helpful to my son’s health. I can see this being a better cold and flu year for our family! I also love that if we go to visit somewhere I can bring it with us, plug it in and let it start to work. If we have a time were we are visiting friends and family where we will be spending the night we can put it in our rooms and it will be very easy for us to bring to a hotel if we are on vacation as well.
I honestly can not find one thing that I do not love about the design, the way that the EdenPURE OxiLeaf purifies the house and kills germs and makes the house smell so clean. It is really a great product to have and use with any family and keep any home smelling fresh and keeping it 99.9% free of air pollutants as well. You and your family will thank yourself or if you get it as a gift the person who got it for you! I was wondering how this little leaf could do all the things that they claimed but it has exceeded my expectations! We have a good size living room, dining room and kitchen and I can tell a huge difference in the whole house. It really does what they say! I used it for about 2 weeks before I wrote anything because I really wanted to ensure that this review is accurate and it has just blown me away at how wonderful it really is!
I was so excited when the Bumbleberry Farms Molten Lava, Maple, Sticky Buns, and Salted Caramel Honey Cream arrived. It came in the cutest little box. It just happened that we were sick when it arrived and to boot I had run out of honey from making the whole family Green Tea with Star Mint candy melted in it with honey to get them feeling better. So I was so excited that I didn’t have to run to the store to get more honey. Talk about perfect timing. I had also been arguing with my youngest son that he needed to drink his tea. (He can be a joy when he is sick!)
I was so excited to have the different flavored honey cream arrive when it did. So I took my son’s tea from him and I put in some Molten Lava in his tea and he DRANK it! Thank you Bumbleberry Farms because getting that boy to drink his tea is like pulling teeth! He asked for more with of course the Molten Lava Honey Cream in it! Then he took a nap, so I was thrilled with that! We all loved it, the Molten Lava was sweet, Chocolate goodness! It was just perfect! The boys wanted some toast so I put the Molten Lava Honey Cream on it and they were loving it! It made our whole sick family feel better!
I have to say the flavors for Honey Cream are just amazing! They had a rich flavor and they have such a comfort feeling to them when you put them on toast, in tea or coffee, such a feeling of this is a great comfort food to have in my cabinet! We have tried the different flavors and each tastes so delicious! I can not wait to try even more flavors. We will also be using them in some great recipes as well! We will substitute the sugars in recipes for the Honey Cream. There are so many wonderful recipes, breakfast dishes and drink recipes that you could use the Bumbleberry Honey Cream in!
You can get these great flavored Bumbleberry Farms Molten Lava, Maple, Sticky Buns, and Salted Caramel Honey Cream and find so many new ways to use them. Your family will thank you and wonder where you found these amazing flavors to create your desserts, breakfasts or that amazing tea or coffee they are drinking. Bring your friends and family the comfort of Bumbleberry Farms Honey Creams!
Are you tired of all the high cable bills your paying and all the wasted money that your giving them? I have to tell you that last year I was paying over $250 a month for Cable, phone and internet. When my contract came up for that year to be done. I changed our cable bill! I was like I must have lost my ever loving mind paying that much for Cable, phone and internet! So I changed what we had, I got rid of the cable all together!
I canceled the cable t.v., I kept our phone and then went with the internet package as well, the rest they could keep!
So I decided that we were going to be streaming all of our T.v. and movie from apps. There are a TON of apps that you can use and many are free! Some of the apps cost a little bit but nothing close to what I was paying for cable! We have Netflix for which I pay $14 a month but there are cheaper plans available. I went with that plan because 4 people can watch different things on their tablet, t.v. or other devices like the Google Chromecast Streaming Player it can bring your T.v. to life and at a much cheaper cost for your wallet! There are so many free apps that you can use with the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player. There is Terrarium TV,YouTube, YouTube Tv, and so many more! I can’t believe how many different apps are free to use! The amount of TV shows, movies and other things that you can watch are amazing!
I love that You can use the Google Chromecast Streaming Player to have all the entertainment you want from music, T.v shows, movies and so much more. The things you can use the Google Chromecast Streaming players has more options than cable ever did! Not to mention the savings for your family as well! I also love that you can talk to the Google Chromecast Streaming Player and it will do what you ask it to from putting on your favorite app to playing your favorite song and all very easily. Your family is going to love that your getting more entertainment for your money! You can purchase Google Chromecast at your local Best Buy Store and get streaming right away!

There are so many great free stencils that you can use to make some great pumpkins with your family. I have included some of my favorite sites that offer free stencils for you to print out and use to make your pumpkins. I know it’s going to be difficult to chose which ones to use as there are so many great ones. I suggest picking up a few more pumpkins to keep the fun going for the Halloween season!
We are doing several pumpkins this year and we are using glow in the dark paint. This way they will show in color during the day and then come evening they will glow the images in the dark. We are using the stencils as a way to know where to paint. So this is a great option as well for the Halloween season. Once your finished you can put them on your porch or in your windows for everyone to enjoy.

We received the Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone to review. I told my son’s that I had a surprise for them to help me with. So of course as always they wanted to know what they would be helping with and what was in the box I was holding. I told them we would open it after lunch. So we sat down to lunch and they ate really quickly and said “Okay, we are ready to help mom!” I had to laugh because it was about 5 minutes and they were done with lunch. Can you tell they get excited to help me??? lol
So we took the box outside and I opened it. The boys were so excited about seeing how the drone worked. I took out the batteries that I had already charged and the Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone. I got the Drone ready and they were so excited that they were going to get to try it. I gave the remote to one of my son’s. We have a field that is just a block or two away from our house so we went there to fly the drone because it was their first time and I didn’t want it to land on top of the house. So I told them how it works and what they needed to do. It was simple enough for them both to use with no problems.
My son had the Drone flying and I had put in the Micro SD card as well so that I could have him take some photos. They were having so much fun! They had the whole field to fly the drone over so they were just having a blast. They were amazed at how high the drone would go and how easy it was to land it. They were taking photos as well, those did not come out so well. Not by any fault of the drone’s camera, the boys were still trying to figure out how to fly it and use it so they came out blurry because it was moving all over the place when they were trying to take pictures. So I wasn’t expecting great first photos by any means. The boys were just having so much fun with the Drone, I was loving watching them play with it.
I did take the Drone out by myself, because you know that I had to try it for the review. Yes, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. LOL! So I went to the field and I was flying the drone. I had no problems flying it or landing it. I was able to take photos from the drone camera as well and they came out great. I had both batteries with me so I was having a lot of fun with it! I was able to land it on the field with no problems, since it was my first time I figured I would crash it but no, it landed easily. I have used it several times and each time I get better and better with flying it and the pictures are coming out great! I’m thinking of trying to take some fun fall photos of the family with the drone and seeing how they come out. I have some personalized gifts that I would love to use the pictures for!
The Vivitar DRC-330 Air Defender Drone would make a great Christmas gift! Not only for Children but also for adults! You can find the Drone at Walmart, Target, Staples, and several other stores. It’s a great gift for that hard to buy for person because there are so many ways to use it!
I can honestly say that with 4 kids and 5 grandkids, our drains are always
getting clogged. The little ones for some reason think it’s a great idea to take little pieces of toilet paper and put them in the sink from the toilet paper roll. They shred it and put it in and it builds up in the drain. Then of course I get to figure out what they did to clog the drain. I grab the bottle of Roto Rooter because I know that it will clear the clog and have the drain cleared in no time. It has saved our drains a number of times after the little stinkers have clogged it.
My daughter who has now figured out that you need to run hot water when draining hamburger you just cooked before draining has clogged the kitchen sink a number of times. I keep telling her that you can not drain the hamburger unless the water is running. However, what does mom know! So since she knew more she got handed the Roto Rooter Gel clog remover. She read the instructions and did what they said and the clog was gone. She said “Look Mom! The drain is cleared and working great again!” I laughed and said “Yes, it is that was what we wanted to happen.” She said “This is great! I’m going to buy Roto Rooter when the kids clog our drains!” We both were laughing because I told her “Between her and the kids, they were going to need several bottles at all times.” We were laughing and she said “Mom, is that why you have several bottles?” I told her “Yes, because I never know when I’m going to need it with all the kids!”
Of course all of the girls have long hair, so when we all take showers we also have the hair clogged drains as well. It’s a great time for us to use Roto Rooter as well. It takes care of the clogged drains and remove the hair. We use the hair catcher on the drain but it still clogs up the drain. So we are always ready with Roto Rooter to unclog the drain and ready for the next person to shower. We have always had this problem with our hair. Our hair for all the girls is so thick and it really does a number on the drain. But with Roto Rooter we have found that it saves the day and we can get the drains working again easily.
There has not been one drain that we have not clogged one time or another. So having Roto Rooter on hand is always a good idea. I also love that it’s reasonably priced so I can have several bottles on hand and not break the bank! So it keeps our drains working, and we do not have a need for a plumber. Which I have to say that I love because for as many times as our drains have been clogged a plumber would have been so expensive every time I had to call one!
