This list is intended for children 9 to 10 years of age, though 8 to 11 is great time span to consider the titles for. This year the titles dig more into history, geography and culture. There is a focus on Greek history, the literary works of Burnett and Shakespeare and Longfellow and woodlands nature.
One of my favorite parts about the weather cooling off is making soups, stews and chili. There is just one problem with that right now, our high today in sunny Central Florida is 85. Yes 85!
Regardless, we are having soup thanks to a snag in our co-op order. You see, in the co-op we order meat and cheese once a month, at the end of October, beginning of November, we placed our order for the December 7th meat delivery.
I have blogged in the past about what a curse being skinny can be. Clothes shopping is a nightmare and more often than not people are nasty and rude to you about "how tiny" you are, whether they realize it or not. In fact for some reason, people seem to feel they can vocalize their opinion of you if you are skinny in any way they see fit. After all, it couldn't possibly hurt the feelings of someone who isn't overweight, right!
It is time for the fifth installment of classic literature list I'm am posting. Previously I have shared with you
Generally the blogging world consist of three types of bloggers; professional, "working" and hobby. A professional blogger knows their craft inside out and what they don't know they continue to learn as this IS their full time income.
The working blogger treats their blog as a business, is making a little something extra for fun times and is steadily striving to learn more and become the professional. <--That's me!
The hobby blogger just does it for fun. Chances are they are not familiar with a lot of code or jargon and could care less about receiving any payment or free product. They just want to share their voice and passion and be left alone.

Love isn't a strong enough word when it comes to my relationship with food. In fact, I have said over and over, if I could have one wish granted, it would be to slowly eat my way around the world Bizarre Foods style. New flavors and foods are as intriguing to me as my favorite comfort foods. My family doesn't always share my passion for food, but for moment, well actually for two days, I saw that little glimmer in their eye after our HelloFresh box was delivered to our door.
It is that time of year again. The time for hot chocolate, gift giving, cute little elves, the jolly fat man and of course ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas lineup of holiday entertainment. It all starts tonight with The Grinch and I am ready!
Our family looks forward to the beloved favorites and even some new picks every year as the channel quickly turns us into TV zombies, because we just cannot get enough.

A few months ago MEGA Brands sent us their new paper based LeapFrog products to review, and we loved them. I was excited when they offered to send us another product from their line of brands, this time the Extreme AirBrush Studio from RoseArt.
My kids all really like playing with the Extreme AirBrush Studio, especially my 8 year old daughter. If we did not already own it, it would have made a great gift for her for Christmas.

I don't know about you, but I loved My Little Pony when I was a little girl and that fact that my girls do too makes me a little warm and fuzzy. I knew they would be excited when we were offered the chance to review the My Little Pony: Party of One HD app from PlayDate Digital through Mosaic Reviews.
My Little Pony: A Party for One is a storybook app for children 4 and up, based off of an episode from the animated series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" from Hasbro airing on The HUB TV network. The cartoon quality app is licensed through Hasbro Inc and presents a story of friendship with favorite ponies including Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle.
This is my fourth post in a series sharing suggested literature based on the book Fingerpost to Children's Reading. Previously I have shared with you
