Popcorn and Games!

Hi neighbors!

Friday evening is our family game night.  We usually choose a game or two, gather around the table, grab a snack and play games for a couple of hours.  The snack of choice in our home on these evenings is usually popcorn.  Sometimes it is microwave popcorn and other times we actually use the popcorn maker.  It just depends on how much time we have before the game time starts. My oldest daughters like to try different types of flavorings for the popcorn so we often have popcorn supplies on hand.  Cheese is the number one favorite, but they also like a pizza flavor.

Occasionally we will purchase a flavored popcorn from the store or a specialty shop.  We have tried spicy popcorn, not really a favorite.  The big hit was when I found some dark chocolate popcorn on clearance at a local store.  It was $1 a bag.  My husband and two of the children tried it and he went back and bought 10 more bags!  They did not last long!

Not only do we have popcorn on family night, but it is often a side dish with lunch.  The children love to have it with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or when they have soup.  My only problem is having enough in the house.  If we use microwave popcorn with lunch, we almost always go through 3-4 bags.  Popcorn is also our favorite hotel snack.  It is reasonably inexpensive, easy to make or bring with you, fills the children, and tastes great!  For the hotel we often bring our seasoning shakers with us.

Do any of my neighbors have a favorite type or flavor of popcorn?  Do you have a special seasoning you use?  Leave a comment and share it with us!

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for popcorn supplies and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

I love just plain butter popcorn, but I do like the kind you buy at the fair, it tastes like it has sugar on it.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.
