                                                   What Makes Us Smile

                                          A smile can make a difference

To me a smile comes from my Husband just loving me from a kiss or a hug or even doing nice things for me. Like making me a cup of tea or coffee.
From watching my sons grow can put a smile as you see them changing and from the love and kisses and hugs i get from them too.
From seeing the sun shining to nice warm sunny days.
Enjoying the outdoors of going for a walk with my Husband or boys.
That is what makes me smile but how i make others smile is playing with my kids and loving my family.

But also helping out others can put a smile on your face.
So during the holidays you want to put a smile on  peoples faces why not join the Snack Pack Canada Share a Smile Campaign as they would like to reach a goal of raising $20,000 for Food Banks Canada in time for the holidays!

                                                                          A puppy and a family he adopted

                                                                                Some tears and smiles all in this book.
In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What began as a terrible day suddenly became a brighter day.
They saw a dog that was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue they thought had been in a fire.
Not realizing that this dog was used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life.

The Levins sons are also adopted and were unable to resist Oogy and decided to take him home.
A new beginning for Oogy and the Levin family.

So many thanks to Dr. James Bianco and Diane Klein on going above and beyond to helping Oogy survive because if it was not for them who knows what could have been.
 The beginning of Oogy's life is somewhat unclear and Larry tries to find out about the life of Oogy of what had happened and learns as much as he can about the dog that became a part of their life.

A life change for Oogy and and the Levins that make you realize that something good can happen out of bad.

Frito Lay Chips

                                                                         Great Tasting Snacks

I received what you see in the picture above from  Frito Lay

For a company that has been around for more than 75 years is still growing and changing with the times.
As with being more enviromental friendly and more nutritious.
They use potatoes or corn and all-natural oils and salt.

They were one of the first major food companies to remove partially hydrogenerated oils from cooking oil in 2003.
So that means the chips have 0 grams trans fat because they use all-natural oils and sunflower oil.

Most of the chips contain less salt than an amount of sodium in a slice of bread. WOW

So the days of saying junk food becomes even better. So you don't feel so bad when you want that snack because they are making it better for you.

I have to say that we do buy different brands of chips and yes Frito Lay  is a part of that quite a bit.
But this is the first time i have ever had Original Sun Chips as we have purchased the Cheddar. They were very good and i know i will buy them again with whole grain taste and lightly salted.
The Tostios Scoops we have had and great to eat plain or with Salsa or dip.
The Lays lightly salted were nice tasting also with less salt than regular chips.

I also have to say a favourite chip is Doritos in our house. A bag does not last long.
Frito Lay is also being enviromentaly friendly as they use renewable energy like solar power in an effort to reduce the amount of water, electricity and fuel that is used.
They are also taking measures to divert at least 99% of waste from landfills by reusing their shipping cartons up to 6 times before recycling them to help reduce cardboard waste.
They are looking after you as a consumer on making a healthier snack and taking measures to be more enviromentaly friendly.
All a great step in the right direction.

Disclosure: I received free samples of Frito-Lay chips for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

Costumes For Christmas Review

                  Looking for that special costume for the holidays.

With it coming close to the Holidays and with Christmas Pageants or parades and shows or just to be in the spirit of the holidays and you are looking for those special  Christmas costumes , you will have so many to choose from like a snowman, elf or even Santa and so much more for the infant to child to adult that you want the costume for.
We ended up looking through the boys costumes  for our youngest son and he was liking what he was seeing.
But one costume caught his attention and it was the one he said he wanted so he chose the  Toy Soldier Child Costume.

Well the day it arrived he wanted to put it on as soon as it came in the door, he just could not wait. He was so excited.
We chose a size medium thinking that this should be a little bigger as it says fits most sizes 8-10.
Our son is 6.
The pants were great as they still had a little more length to them which he could grow into them.
But the red jacket was a tight fit pulling over his head was a little hard and hw was not happy how it was going over him. But once your got it on him it was better. But than taking off the jacket was also tight.
But i find you need to order up a size or more for your child as the costume seems to be small fitting but again that was just the red jacket.
Oveall my son had fun posing in his costume as he was enjoying being a Soldier as you can see by the pictures.

Also the costume can be worn again for Halloween or to play dress up. Check out all the costumes and the great prices for the next costume you might need.

Child Behavior

We have has some behavior issues with our 5 year old son for along time now.
He has been better since the summer but still does not always listen.
In 2009 he had started school and we were worried about how he was going to be and we had every right to worry as had some issues with being to close to other students and not giving them space, not listening in class and going to the principals office.
My Husband kept on saying maybe we should get some help. I was like no, maybe it is us. My Husband said stop blaming us we need to get him help and us.

I finally listened. So we first went to the family doctors and they said to contact
Contact Hamilton. My Husband was on the phone with them for a little over an hour as they ask you lots of questions like yes and no questions about your child and even you as parents. The lady he spoke to was very good and had been doing this job for a long time and she said she thinks it is just behavior issues but she wanted us to see a  pediatrician. As they know alot more and can  assess our son better.
So back to calling the family doctor so they could give us a referral and an appointment.

April 2010  we take our youngest son to see the  pediatrician. Which she asked us alot of questions and measured our sons head and checked him over and wanted blood work done. We were there an hour thinking it was going to be short we did not bring anything to play with for our son. NOT THINKING again that we were going to be that long. As most times you are in and out of the office so fast but not in this case. But than our youngest was getting hyper and for most of the hour was up and down on the bed. But we told her that he is not always like that so she knew better of not to label him.
She also told us to start giving him Omega 3 because it to help children and the brain and good for learning in so many words.
The only thing when our sons blood work came back was he had low iron.
Whic he was already taking multivitamins with Iron and which he still gets.
We had finally started giving him the omega 3. Not sure if it did anything but we thought it is worth a try. As also we still give him Omega 3.

Also this week we went to a program to watch a video about behavior which also had other parents at it also which we signed up for.
It was about 1-2-3 Magic
More information about the books and such here  by Dr. Thomas W. Phelan 

We all watched the video and than the lady that was presenting the video to us also talked to us all and let us ask questions and she answered our questions.
I felt the video was very good and we are going to try this on our son.

It is a different approach to discipline.
I think i realized that i talk to much when i  am trying to get my son to listen= discipline.
The less talk is better.  
I know i would like to get more information from this as it may help with us a parents and help our son to behave better.
It takes one step at a time and to get in the right direction.

For this year of school my son has changed to being better than last year. But the teacher does say he still has areas he needs to work on.
It has only been a few months of school so i hope  that he improves.
