A Netflix Year in Review – The Best & Worst of Binge-Watching

2017 in review

Holiday Gift Ideas for the Kids

Recently I was sent a few toys that are marked as “what the kids want” for this Christmas and I want to share them. Don’t worry, we fully tested them out and our boys really liked them and said they would like more. Did you hear that Santa?

Thanks to ChizComm for kindly sending us a few toys to review.
