My Story: Daniel & Noah Books from Tommy Nelson #sponsored

I received a copy of My Story: Daniel & My Story: Noah for review purposes as as a Tommy Nelson Mommy.  All opinions are my own.



Tommy Nelson



You may remember a fun new series of Bible sticker books called My Story from Tommy Nelson that I reviewed back in December.  The Attic Baby loved My Story: David & My Story: Joseph and was super excited to receive the next two books in the series!

Each book (geared towards ages 1-4) comes with 45 story-themed stickers and a Sticker Journal so your child can remember the events. 

My Story: Daniel, Thomas NelsonIn My Story: Daniel,  kids will hear the story of Daniel in the lion's den straight from the Bible hero himself.  They will also learn that if they trust in God,  He will bring them through even the most challenging of circumstances.





My Story: Noah, Thomas Nelson
My Story: Noah has the classic story of the flood, animals in the ark and a beautiful rainbow of God's promise in a fresh new way.  Kids will learn that God keeps His promises, no matter what.


They are short enough to keep my three year old's attention, have fun cartoon-like illustrations, and teach some great lessons!  And of course, the stickers are her favorite part of the book.  She loves placing them on the pages and using the extras to stick to her shirt {or whatever else she can find to stick them to like any preschooler}.

Medieval Times Baltimore Spring Break BOGO Offer #sponsored



I received complimentary tickets at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament at Arundel Mills in Hanover, MD.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.



Spring break is almost here and we are looking forward to the time off before the end of the school year craziness.  We are huge fans of Medieval Times {especially my teen}, so the guys were able to catch the latest show at the castle in Hanover at Arundel Mills as a special spring break treat.

It's always a good idea to arrive at least a half an hour early, as Arundel Mills is pretty hectic and parking can be tricky at different times of the day {especially weekends}.  My hubby likes to park in the garage.

When you arrive at the castle, you're greeted with a crown, a laminated card that designates your section, and you can have your photo taken with a character from the show.  {I suggest you take a before-the-show selfie too}  There are souvenirs, weapons displays, and other fun decor to check out or you can grab a drink while you wait.


Medieval Times


The guys had royalty seats, which were really close to the action, and received a commemorative program, behind-the-scenes DVD, and a yellow flag to cheer on the yellow knight.  If you have the chance to upgrade, the closer seats are definitely worth it {though be warned if you have asthma, the dry ice effects might make you want to sit a little further away}.

Medieval Times, Arundel Mills


During the show, they served blood red "Dragon soup", chicken, roasted potatoes, ribs, and an apple turnover for dessert.  You are allowed two servings of drink {pepsi or water} along with your meal which is served in courses.  It's hot, fresh, and there is plenty of food to fill your tummy.  And of course, you have to eat it with your hands {no utensils allowed}.  The server was excellent, cheerful, and even posed for a photo.

 

The show is always full of action, with beautiful horses, a hawk trainer, and lots of cheering and screaming for your designated knight.  {Though we haven't seen our designated knight win yet, it's fun to cheer them on}  And of course there is the usual bad guy and a beautiful princess which will appeal to both guys and girls.

When Calls the Heart: Lost & Found DVD #sponsored

Thank you to Edify Media for giving me a review copy of When Calls the Heart: Lost and Found. All opinions are my own. 

The Hallmark Channel


I have fallen in love with a new series on the Hallmark Channel called When Calls the Heart.  The original When Calls the Heart movie premiered on DVD back in November and I have been hooked ever since.  If you haven't seen it, here is your chance to see the feature length film from the first two episodes of the television series: When Calls the Heart: Lost & Found which debuted on DVD Feb. 25th.

Synopsis:

“When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, has just been killed in an explosion.  The newly widowed women find their faith is tested when they must go to work in the mines to keep a roof over their heads. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a 19th century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.




the Hallmark Channel 

I didn't think I would be very happy when I found that they switched out the lead actors in the original movie when the series started.  I hate it when you start out with certain actors and then you find someone completely different!  But I was pleasantly surprised when Erin Krakow appeared in the tv series.  She really is genuine and convincing as Elizabeth and her chemistry with Daniel Lissing who plays Constable Jack is wonderful.
 

In When Calls the Heart: Lost and Found,  you get to know more about the townspeople and see the friendships that Elizabeth makes with many of them, in particular Abigail Stanton (Lori Loughlin from one of my favorite family-friendly series back in the day Full House)  You also get to see how difficult it is for Elizabeth to adjust to her new life in Coal Valley.

The story line is compelling and the plot is has a great pace And yes, it is more of a "chick flick" type series, but one that you don't have to worry about content around your kids with good "old fashioned" values.  There's action, some clean romance, and great life lessons about faith, friendship, and family.  I think I love this series even more than the Love Comes Softly series of movies!

Once you see the DVD, you will want to continue on with the rest of the series, it is that good.  I am crossing my fingers and toes that the powers that be behind the Hallmark Channel line-up will continue on with this series for many more seasons!  We need more quality family-friendly shows like this one on tv.

Walt Disney Records Sing into Spring Giveaway #sponsored

I was sent a complimentary collection of Disney Music CDs by as part of Entertainment New Media Network.  Giveaway is sponsored through the network by **The Attic Girl** with prizes provided by Walt Disney Records.


It's no secret that my preschooler is a huge fan of Disney Junior shows like Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and Jake & the Neverland Pirates.   

She loves to watch her favorite episodes over and over...and over.. and over....again.   We've also spent many hours listening to the music from favorite shows and Disney movies, most recently Frozen.  

I don't think there has been a day that has gone by that she hasn't asked for me to go on Youtube and play "Let it Go".  {And there probably isn't a night that has gone by that this hasn't been stuck in my head.  Or her daddy's head.  Or probably her big brother's head either}

Walt Disney Records


We recently received a fun Sing into Spring package for preschoolers including 4 Walt Disney Records CD's:



Doc McStuffins Sound Track

DJ Shuffle

Jake and the Never Land Pirates / Yo Ho Matey

Frozen Sound Track



They are perfect for your preschooler's repertoire, each with 20 or more favorite songs!  The Attic Baby was so excited when she saw them that she had me open up each one and immediately start playing them.


Frozen was her first choice.  Ever since we saw this movie in the theaters {actually when she started seeing commercials for it}, she has been obsessed with Elsa & Anna.  The music is absolutely the best sound track I think I have heard since Beauty & The Beast or The Little Mermaid {my favorites when I was younger}.  


Walt Disney Records

Doc McStuffins was her second choice followed by DJ Shuffle and then Jake & the Neverland Pirates.  She had to look at every booklet insert while listening to the music and singing along.   They are also perfect for playing in the car on our long drives to get her brother after school or just having our own dance party at home.

Walt Disney Records also has a tween Sing into Spring package which includes Frozen, Austin & Ally: Turn It Up, DC Play it Loud, and Teen Beach Movie soundtracks.   You can read a review from Evan & Lauren's Cool Blog about the tween package here.
