Check Out Some of the Cool New Toys That Were on Display at TTPM from Disney's Toy Story 4

If you haven't heard, Toy Story 4 is coming to theaters on June 21!  I am a huge Toy Story fan.  It was one of my son's favorite Disney movies growing up, and I make sure to watch every Toy Story sequel that comes to theaters.  I have a soft spot for Woody.

In the newest movie, Bonnie makes a new toy named Forky.  He is the most important toy to Bonnie and Woody rallies the toys to protect Forky and make sure nothing happens to him.  When Forky runs away, Woody sets out to search for him and runs into some trouble and old friends along the way.

Check out the Official Trailer:



Last week I was fortunate to have been invited to the TTPM 2019.  There were so many wonderful new toys on display for Spring, including lots of toys from Toy Story 4.  I wanted to share some of my favorites!  Check them out!

My father in law never ceased to tell me how much he loved his Nixplay frame.  He thought it was the greatest invention since the wheel.  He loved taking …

We Carry Kevan by Kevan Chandler is Such an Inspiring Read

A month or so ago, I saw a video online, about a man named Kevan Chandler, born with spinal muscular atrophy, whose six friends carried him, backpack style, across Europe.  When I saw this video, I remember thinking to myself, "Wow, those must be some wonderful friends, to do that." It was truly inspiring to watch it.

Check out the video that inspired me:



This book, written by Kevan Chandler is such an uplifting and inspring book.  It tells the detailed story of the adventures that Kevan and his friends encountered during their trip through England, Ireland, France and Wales.
In his book, Kevan speaks of how he experienced everything, just as his friends did, and that nothing was out of reach or off limits. No mountain was too high for him to climb.
It was nice to read the stories of the other friends who carried Kevan through Europe.  Each had their own story and experience to tell.  Most of them found a new appreciation for things that we take for granted every day, like walki…

How to Make Your Wedding an Accessible Wedding

Photo by Judita Tamošiūnaitė from Pexels Whether you suffer from a disability yourself, or you have a close friend or relative who is disabled, you may well be one of the growing number of people looking to throw a more accessible wedding. People with physical and psychological disabilities have been shunned from weddings and similar gatherings until relatively recently in history. As a result, there are still a great many misconceptions that exist when it comes to catering for the disabled. Most people are nothing but well-intentioned around the disabled, but without the benefit of firsthand experience there is a lot of room for error. Any wheelchair user who has married will be able to tell you how much more difficult wedding planning - not the most stress-free activity at the best of times - is when you have to factor in disabled access. Whether it’s the bride, the groom, or one of the guests, if any of your invitees are in any way disabled, you will have to account for this in every…

How to Comfort Your Child When They Have Bad Dreams

One of the heart aching things to deal with as a parent or guardian, is when your child has nightmares or bad dreams.  I can remember my son having night terrors and it would scare me because he looked like he was awake, and sometimes would sleep walk.  It was so bad for a period of time, that I actually decided to sleep in his room to prevent him from hurting himself.  His bedroom was on the second floor of my home and I worried he would fall down the stairs.   I didn't want to lock his door, for safety reasons.  There were many nights that I was glad I was in his room to calm him or gently wake him while he was having an episode.

According to KidsHealth.Org, nightmares occur during the REM stage of sleep.  In this stage, the brain is very active.  The brain has vivid images that seem to be real and can trigger emotions.  The reason they call this stage REM is because of the Rapid Eye Movement beneath closed eyes.

When our children wake up from their nightmares they are still think…

GSI Exchange 2016 Silver Snow Falcon Coin Review

I received a beautiful silver coin from GSI Exchange to review and I must say that it is one of the most beautiful coins I have received.  
The 2016 Silver Snow Falcon is so detailed.  You can literally see all of the little feathers in the falcon.  I love falcons, so this coin has a sentimental value to me as well.  
These are not cheap looking coins.  They are thick, heavy silver coins that any collector would be proud to have in their collection.  
The coin is so pristine and has crisp lines and edges and details.
Silver coins are a great investment and great to give as gifts.  They are beautiful to display.
Here is more detailed information about the 2016 Silver Snow Falcon:
