Turns out I liked the book I read, a lot. Cash has a writing talent that can't be beat. That was the only book I read by him, but I may pick up another in the future. 

Now Michael Phillip Cash is at it again with his newest novella and 12th book, The History MajorMichael Phillip Cash is an award-winning screenwriter and novelist. He's written the best-selling Brood X, Stillwell, The Flip, The After House, The Hanging Tree, Witches Protection Program, Pokergeist, Monsterland and Battle for Darracia series.

An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?

#Hasbro has THE "IT" Toys for Christmas #PlayLikeHasbro

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Okay, it's Christmas and I think Hasbro cornered the 'IT' market for Christmas with their Play All Day Elmo and their Pie Face Game. Of course they have a million other great selections too, Hasbro always does, but those two I think are going to be under the Christmas Trees this year, more than any other toys. Just my own personal guess from hearing people talk in person and on social media.

The Playskool Sesame Street Playlay All Day Elmo is huge, he's cute and he does a ton of fun things. He's an interactive favorite-character plush at its finest. My favorite thing about him is he's soft, not hard to touch like some interactive toys can be.

Little ones love watching Elmo play with his friends on Sesame Street. Now it's their turn to play along with Elmo: Meet Play All Day Elmo! This cuddly and interactive Elmo toy has over 150 responses, plus 8 games and activities to help keep kids engaged. When playtime is over, preschoolers can cuddle with him while listening to a lullaby.

Play All Day in Toddler or Preschool Mode: Elmo has 2 modes of play to encourage both younger and older children to have fun. In Toddler mode, young children can enjoy basic cause-and-effect play, like tickling Elmo or squeezing his nose to see how he might respond. In Preschool mode, preschoolers and Elmo can take play to the next level with games and activities. They can play pat-a-cake, wiggle and giggle through a freeze dance, stop and go through a game of "Red light, Green light," and more! Elmo's built-in sensors help him respond to different activities in fun ways; he can react when he's in the air, when he's upside down, and even when he's moving around. Ages 18 mos - 4yrs.

The second 'IT' toy that I think is huge this year is the 'Pie Face' game. This is one my son has been beeeeeeggging for, and thank goodness he's going to get. And boy, is he ever going to get it, hehehe. I love the concept of this game too, but you might want to play this one at the kitchen table, or even outside. ;)

The exciting Pie Face game is filled with fun and suspsense, and somebody is bound to get splatted! Just put some delicious whipped cream from home or the wet sponge on the 'hand' of this hilarious game unti and start turning the handles. It could go off at any time, so keep your fingers crossed and hope you're not hte one who gets a splat in the face! You score a point for every time you turn the handle without getting pie-faced, and the one who scores 25 points wins. Take some risks and hope for the best in this hilarious Pie Face game! Includes 1 pie thrower, 1 throwing arm, 2 handles, chin rest, splash guard mask, spinner and sponge. Ages 5+

The new Playmation is in a word, AMAZING!! This is like taking a video game out of the video game and having your kids run around in a movie scene all at one time. What do I mean? I mean your child gets to strap on the repulsor, get orders from Jarvis and run around ducking, rolling and saving the world as he engages in Avenger battle. My son played this for 3 hours straight when he first put it on. This is definitely worthy of being an 'it' toy this year! It was a huge hit with the neighbor kids, and my son hasn't stopped talking about it since it arrived.  I've never seen anything like this one, it's a fun new way to engage in active play. You can get the kids off of the couch, happily, when you bring something like this in the house.

The starter kit comes with what you see in the picture above. Two words of warning, and believe me, these don't deter from the toy because the kids love it so much, but you're going to want to know... Frist, the volume is high, but you can easily adjust it. You'll want to know that after an hour goes by with movie-like sound effects booming all over your house. And two, it takes 12 AA batteries. Worth it to invest in some rechargeables for sure.

So there's my 'it' toy list for the holiday. We're loving all of these, and betting you will too. It is my guess that most everyone with kids is going to have something Hasbro under the tree this year, and there's a very good reason for that: Loving Hasbro for the Holidays. #PlayLikeHasbro

The Most Amazing Pop Up Book Ever! You Have Got to See This One!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are my Matthew Reinhart loving own!!

It's so funny to go back and see old blog posts. What a lot of changes have happened since I first started the blog three years ago. Two of my very first posts, way back before I even took sponsored posts (what?? can that be real? lol), were about Matthew Reinhart's amazing pop-up creations. I'm not kidding, this guy is AMAZING with all capital letters.

Chooze Shoes_ Just so Cute!!!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Chooze takes an ordinary thing like shoes and turns them into something extraordinary and fun! What are they? They are shoes that match, but don't match at all!! And what a big hit they are with the kids, once they realize what's going on.

HURRY! You Still Have Time to Order from

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

50" x 60" fleece blanket that my son designed.
There's still time to place an order and get it in time for Christmas!
Seriously, if you're looking for an amazing holiday gift, head on over to and make a photo item for someone special to you! My son wanted to create something for a change (he says I always make the items, lol), so I let him select the pictures and the border he wanted for a 50 x 60" fleece blanket. You can get whatever borders, prints, colors, texts or pictures that you want on it, and it comes in different sizes. He put a lot of pictures on his, and is definitely going to have the product makers keeping busy, lol. And he LOVES his blanket. He took so much time creating it...moving pictures around, deleting pictures and adding new ones. He's a trip. No doubt about it. And I love him so. :)
