We try to use as many recycled all natural gluten free products as we possibly can. No no one in my family has any allergies, we are not forced to live this way. IT IS OUR CHOICE! We want our children's products and ours to be as healthy as possible. So when I found Makes 3 especially with the new baby on the way I just had to try it. I thought what could be more perfect for expecting moms than Makes 3.

We were able to try all of the lovely varieties Makes 3 has to offer and we loved them all!. My favorite was the Coriander Ginger Oatmeal Bar. I love the effect oatmeal has on y dry skin it always leaves me feeling so moisturized. The kids really enjoyed the Lavender Vanilla and I let them use it before bed during their night time bath as Lavender helps promote sleep. Chris liked the Sandalwood Black Pepper and that really surprised me. I have been learning so much about the scents men prefer. They like the woodsy outdoorsy scents it seems. He also loved the Eucalyptus and Cedar wood but I liked that one to the Eucalyptus just seemed so awakening and really stimulating! Makes 3 made me one happy customer!

The Baby Box Company connects with expecting mothers in crisis at Williamson Treatment Center!


There are no beautiful fountains or spas here for pregnant women to retreat to who suffer from the horrible disease of drug addiction. The picture above shows Williamson Treatment Center one of the only available options for women in West Virginia and Kentucky to receive local help. Only a handful of facilities will even take pregnant women due to the high risk of treating addiction in a pregnant patient. Williamson Treatment Center part f the CRC network goes above and beyond. Not only can pregnant patients receive the medication they need at Williamson Treatment Center to ease the baby and mom through the withdrawal process safely but they receive intensive one on one counseling, monitored bottle checks and are required to attend weekly group sessions.
Most of these women have sought treatment before and failed or have never had the money to afford treatment. Now with the new Obama Care program pregnant patients can get a lot of financial help with the Suboxone program and a decreased fee for the Methadone Maintenance Program. This makes treatment possible for so many that otherwise would never have received treatment. West Virginia and Kentucky both have some of the highest rates of drug addiction in the entire US but have less facilities; due to lack of funding.
For once these women aren't treated as outcasts or social pariah. They are just women who have an addiction that need help. The Williamson Treatment Center Pregnancy Group which I have personally been a part of for quite some time offers them the opportunity to graduate a 5 Class Program that will offer them the tools and help they need to stay sober and be productive mothers. Upon completion of the program each graduate receives (funding and donations permitted) a gift basket of baby items for their little one. 
The Baby Box Company
The Baby Box Company is one of the best baby companies I have ever worked with. They are truly a compassionate, giving, selfless company. The Baby Box Company eagerly agreed when I first mentioned my work with The Williamson Treatment Pregnancy Center that they would love to help the women and some how be a part. They donated not 1 but 5 care boxes to the women graduating the program this month and were featured at this months graduation.

Each care box included many of the products you could expect to receive if you purchase The Baby Box. Check out our review of The Baby Box Company . Some of our favorite products included in the box as samples were Avent Pacifiers, Dreft, Boogie Wipes, and Mother Love Nipple Cream. The Baby Box Company only includes the best trusted brands in baby products and also has an all natural box available for purchase. I loved the handmade touches included in the care boxes; the Baby Box Company actually put together what I call Booty Babies. They consist of a diaper body and the top and bottom of the diaper are covered with baby booties and the diaper has little eyes drawn on it making it look like a Booty Baby! They are truly darling and touched my heart! For privacy reasons the clinic doesn't allow photography (HIPPA LAWS and such) but I can tell you everyone loved their care package and were very excited to learn and find out more about The Baby Box Company.
The Classic Box from the Baby Box Company Includes:
1 X traditional Finnish-inspired baby box (length 70 cm, width 43 cm and height 27 cm) and lid designed with The Baby Box Company's current collection pattern
1 X baby mattress fitted to the baby box with waterproof cover and 100% cotton sheet
1 X lovey
2 X BPA-free pacifiers
1 X onesie 
1 X muslin swaddle blanket
1 X healthcare kit
1 X pair of socks
1 X terry cloth bib
1 X natural washcloth
1 X pair of mittens
1 X newborn cap
1 X natural burp cloth

Hallmark Review! #Baby and Toddler Gift Guide

Free For all received the below samples to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received!
Hallmark
Growing up I can remember Christmas time every year me and my 2 sisters looked forward to getting to pick out one item from Hallmark. Hallmark had such beautiful treasures and was like a whimsical fairyland for me and my sisters. We rarely got to go anywhere that had a lot of glass items that kids could easily destroy so this was a big treat! I always picked an ornament, my middle sister a snow globe and my youngest sister was a themes person and always picked something with horses. Now me and my children share our Hallmark traditions! We only buy cards from Hallmark as they are by far the best an have the biggest selection and at Christmas we always let each of the kids pick out a special ornament. With the new baby on the way I was delighted to be able to bring the magic of Hallmark products into her life. I am sure she isn't going to be old enough to remember them but Hallmark makes keepsakes you save and keep a lifetime, when we look back on her life her baby book will be Hallmark.


The first item we tried was the Noah's Ark Three Ring Baby Book! I am in love with this baby book it has so many unique pages and follows each month of your babies growth! This memory book makes it fun and easy to keep track of baby's activities and milestones. New parents will love filling out the book's 70 themed pages with all the facts, tidbits and fun stories about the little one who they'll always want to remember. We also received the Baby's First Year's Milestone Frame it is the perfect decorative piece and is a beautiful keepsake reminder of baby's special moments. This adorable print is just waiting to be filled out with all the sweet details surrounding baby's first-year milestones. It'll look darling in the nursery hanging from its included satin ribbon.

  • Now on to the toys baby gets to try; first we have the Recordable Plush Photo Block.

I love though that the ideas are limitless for pictures you could do ABC'S and use the cube to start teaching letters or numbers. It's really unlimited the images your baby's cube could hold and as she plays she would become familiar with those images. The record option makes it easy to tell baby what the pictures she is seeing are and keeps her stimulated by your voice.

I actually packed the baby's book in my hospital bag so this will be the first book she hears! They have so many great character books the boys book was Batman and the Fun House Jewelry Heist and the baby's is All the Ways I Love You. They have such a huge selection you are sure to find the perfect book for your little one!

    Kidable Adventures Little Thinker Box Review! #Toddler Gift Guide

    Free For All received a sample box to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own. NO financial compensation was received!


    I have reviewed many subscription boxes over the years that I have been a blogger and am a huge fan of subscription boxes especially as gifts. I feel like they are the gift that keeps on giving instead of one huge present the kids toss away; they get a subscription that comes long after Christmas. Very few boxes wow me anymore; although I like a lot of different subscription box companies most are just that what you have come to expect a few dollars over retail value if that. Kidable Adventures wowed me this week! It wasn't necessarily that the box was jam packed with high dollar value items it was the thought and the overall feel of the box my boys received.


    We tried the Little Thinker Box the theme was letter B and Birds. It is absolutely perfect for homeschooling families or just moms like me who like to interact and teach their children while having fun. The box was full of activities and crafts and each activity was perfectly tailored to the letter B and Birds. Below is our box pictured before I ever started working with the kids so you can get an idea of exactly what comes in a Little Thinker Box. I will be explaining each item in the Little Thinker Box so you can see just exactly how fun the Little Thinker Box really is!




    The first craft we started with was the B is for bird craft. The B is for Bird was very simply an introduction to the letter b and featured a bird built around the b shape that the children put together. It was the perfect introduction to the box and familiarized the boys with the letter B! Each craft came with easy to read and follow instructions with diagrams for smaller children who aren't readers yet. Next, was the make your own Birds Nest it was super easy and Christian and Gavin made one each as I had an extra small brown paper bag that Gavin used. With the Birds Nest activity the objective was to count the eggs and make your own addition and subtraction problems using eggs. It was the perfect craft to use and the boys really enjoyed counting their eggs they didn't even realize they were adding and subtracting.



    Second we made the peacock craft and the owl hanger craft together (one Gavin made and one Christian made). Both crafts came with all the materials and were easy for the kids to do either on their own or with a minimal amount of mommies help. The peacock craft also included a cute color by number although Christian decided that he wanted to make his own colors but he did show me and tell me he knew what he was supposed to be coloring but he just wanted his peacock to be colored differently. The creativity was flowing so I figured why stifle him! The owl craft included a worksheet where you had to count how many owls you saw and circle the correct number. Next, we made our binoculars and logged what birds we saw in our observation journal. This is a great time to incorporate a little art as well.  I asked the bots to draw me the birds they saw and gave them feathers, glitter etc ( note this did not come with the box we just craft a lot and had all of the materials needed) to use when drawing and decorating what birds they saw. I think its a good lesson that you can get as much out of your Little Thinker Box as your imagination allows. It doesn't have to end when you have finished your crafts. We actually got lucky and saw the owl later that night also but it was pretty dark so I am not sure how well the kids could see. We mainly observed many local species mostly hummingbirds.  We saw quite a few birds and used the sheet that came with our kit that showed different bird species to see if we could identify any of the birds. Dad helped with identifying our different species he's pretty outdoorsy so he knew most of the ones mommy didn't. Notice how each craft is as I said sticking with the B is for Bird theme.


    Our last craft was the Bird House I saved it for last because I wanted it to be the biggest surprise as it was the one I knew the boys would like best. I wanted them to practice their flashcards more before they got to do it so I made the Bird House kind of the treat at the end for practicing their flashcards which were also included in our Little Thinker Box. The flashcards we still use; they included uppercase and lower case letters as well as site words for numbers. They did need a little help with their bird house and sadly its the only picture I didn't get to take as their little cousin came over and they made the bird house with him and he wanted to take it home. My boys are very giving and they gifted their bird house to him when they all completed it together. Let me just tell you their bird house was colorful and very sparkly they really got into decorating it! Then we all set down and talked about patterns and each one did a part of the worksheet for the bird house. It was a worksheet to pick out what didn't belong in the sequence.
    October's Little Thinker box will be A is for Apple and you can order at Kidable Adventures Little Thinker Box. Also, if you are like me and are bad to wait to the last minute and miss a box you can find many of the previous months Little Thinker Boxes and order boxes you may have missed or may just want extras for maybe for nieces or nephew. Grandparents this makes the perfect gift for those grandbabies teach them and surprise them with a Little Thinker Box!  Each year we get the kids a subscription box for Christmas; I feel they get so much for Christmas they can not appreciate it all and a subscription box comes all through the year. It is the gift that keeps on giving and this year the Little Thinker box will be Gavin's subscription box gift. It is perfect for his age and I think will give him a head start in school. He begins Kindergarten next year and I want him to be prepared!


    I can not say enough about the Kidable Adventures Little Thinker Box as you can see we really enjoyed it! If you enjoy crafting and watching your children have fun learning purchase your Little Thinker Box from Kidable Adventure's now! Don't wait! The younger children are the faster and better they retain information the toddler years are crucial for learning!

    Fash'Em's Review! #Holiday Gift Guide


    Free For All was sent a sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received!


    Calling all Fashionista's have you seen the latest new must have accessory? Fash'Em's are squishing their way into hearts across the country! My niece was so excited when I told her that she was getting some Fash'Ems to play with. When they arrived she opened them up so fast and started playing them. She just turned 2 and loved the squishy feeling of the Fash'Em's in her hands! She sat there and played with them for quite a while and never made a sound. She is very active so this was very unusual. They are so squishy and soft and promote sensory education. They would be perfect for sensory bins!

    Tech4Kids


    Josie likes taking her Fash'Em's with her to the bath tub as well. At first I was skeptical of this but thought what could it hurt to give her Fash'Em's a bath they actually really needed one after she had rolled them in the floor and the carpet! It worked like a charm just add a drop of dish detergent or regular shampoo and soap up those Fash'Em's and thy are good as new. Fash'Em's float so they are perfect for the water. Fash'Em's have different characters Frozen, Hello Kitty, My Little Pony (what Josie tried), and Littlest pet shop.They also have Mash'ems which is the boy version of the Fash'Ems. Check out our Mash'Em' review here. Fash'Em's, Mash'Em's and Tek Recon Blasters are all made by Tech 4 Kids they also has many other great kid toys and products that are perfect for the Holiday Season. Fash'Em's make excellent gifts or perfect stocking stuffers! 



    Make sure to check out all of the Fash'Em's collection on their website. Be sure to follow Tech 4 Kids (the maker's of Fash'Em's) on Facebook to stay up to date on their newest products, contests, and giveaways! 

    Fash'Em's make the perfect Holiday Gift or Stocking Stuffers to purchase yours for that special little one go to website and find all the locations that carry Fash'Em's. We also just spotted Fash'Em's for $5 ( what a steal) at Dollar Store so you may want to start looking there!

    To my 4 and 5 year old there has been no better toy invented than MashEm's. When I saw the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle MashEm's I knew we had to try these. My kids absolutely went wild. Not only are the MashEm's adorably cute, affordable themselves and fun but they are so squishy; can't break or hurt anyone. You can send MashEm's flying all over your living room without worrying that someone will loose an eye or your favorite picture frame will get busted because they are all squish. We set our "battle ground" up and my son's always enjoy seeing who can build the highest wildest tower and then knock it over just to build it again and again. We used Legos for targets and actual TMNT figure to create our "battlefield" the figures made perfect "targets.  I also loved that the launcher was big enough for small hands. A lot of the launchers are made so that you have to be extremely coordinated to operate. This launcher is very kid friendly and easy to handle.

    Tek Recon Blaster Review! #Holiday Gift Guide

    Free For All was sent a sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received!
    What's more fun than watching your 4 and 5 year old battle it out? Batting it out with Tek Recon Blaster's with your 4 and 5 year old! Mine loved having epic target shootouts with their Tek Recon Blasters! I loved watching how much fun they had. With the Holidays quickly approaching I wanted to share Tek Recon with you and let you know what a great Holiday Gift Blasters make they are the perfect present! I did however make mine wear protective eyewear when shooting as these guns are toys hey are very life like. It takes 2 seconds to put on protective eyewear and is necessary when shooting. Tek Recon even sales Tek Vision glasses be sure to pick up a pair! Who knows a wayward NRG round could go anywhere! Better safe than sorry! I was amazed at the technology Tek Recon had to offer.
     I thought my kids were getting a toy gun. What we got was an actual online gaming experience. The live action online gaming app enhances the battling experience taking gaming to a whole new level. We connected our smartphone and the kids went wild. The app uses mobile and GPS technology to allow multi player/team battles to come to life! The best part about the app is it is free! My kids have had hours of fun with their Tek Recon Blasters and me and the hubby even got in on the play a little.

    ColorTime Review and Giveaway! #Holiday Gift Guide

    ColorTime Crafts & Markers

    As most of you know I love crafting with my boys, so when ColorTime offered to let us try their products I was excited. We have been making a habit out of going outside every evening after school and finishing Christian's homework and then doing a craft together so when we received our ColorTime package me and the boys were excited.
    Colortime Crafts Recycle ToteFabric MarkersCraft Tote Bags
    We received 2 of the Recycle Tote Bags they are priced super affordably at $4.95 each and are perfect for any age.  If you go to the Recycle Tote Bag link you can print  printable coloring sheet or just use this link here http://www.colortime.com/mc_images/category/64/146_recycle_coloring_page_.pdf that is the exact coloring image. We used our printable to practice before we colored our totes. In addition to the totes we received a set of markers which you will need to purchase to color your craft. Markers can all be found here http://www.colortime.com/c20/Fabric-Markers-c7.html. You can purchase individual markers for $2.35 or buy a set starting as low as $6.99. I love the fact that ColorTime doesn't break the bank for both of my children's totes and a set of markers the total cost would be ($4.95x2+$6.99) $16.89. It is hard to find a quality kid's craft project for under $20 so ColorTime gets my 2 thumbs up for the Holiday Gift Guide. ColorTime crafts are perfect for kids and to bring the entire family together for some fun craft time. The kids loved coloring their totes and loved carrying their bags as overnight bags for their jammies to grandmas.
