No Need For The Sunday Paper

This week's links are:

Allie at Everything Mom. She wrote an incredibly touching post about a former teacher. This post inspires me.

Mommy's Wise Little Bookworms: She made a Halloween-themed Sensory Tub using black beans, orange colored rice and those itty-bitty jack-o-lantern candy holders. This will be perfect for my kids, who love sensory tubs!

Getting ready for Christmas yet? Thinking about gift buying? Two moms have had posts in the last week that have caught my attention. The Activity Mom put together a list of her family's favorite toys. I thought it was such a great list. There are some great finds in there. And My Billingual Boys did a post recently on toys her kids actually play with. It has me thinking about what I will be giving this year. That it's not just about what the kids want, but what has value, and what they will actually play with.

ABC/123: a Learning Cooperative has a post (and accompanying giveaway) about Families with Purpose. I could get behind what Families With Purpose is about. Go check it out.

Scripture For Sunday

1 John 4:7

Love one another. For love comes from God.


  1. Hi! Great blog. :) Please check out my blog. I have given your blog an award. Have a great day :)


  2. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog! I hate wasting money on toys that just sit around and collect dust. It helps to have the input of fellow mommies before I start shopping this holiday season. We will be discussing a new toy every Thursday.

  3. I haven't seen this at ABC & 123 yet. Thanks for posting this!

    How is your son doing? You have been in my prayers.

  4. Thanks for the links to these new blogs!! Some of them sound great and I will be checking them out! :)

    I love your muffin tin meal thing - my boys are 1 and 2, a bit young to care what their meal is served in! But I am saving this idea and will be doing it when they are a TAD bit older!! For now I simply enjoy looking at yours and the others creativity!
