My Thoughts

My husband and I are perfect candidates for this product because from time to time we get  cold sores and fever blisters. And, they seem to come at the most inappropriate times. Embarrassing! I remember getting fever blisters as a young child. I would other products to help with the healing and pain. Just last week my husband was bombarded with cold sores. I am sure it was due to stress. Stress is one of the factors that can cause a cold sore or fever blister.

"Nicki and the Crew" Rockin' Christmas Single

Treetop Sisters presents Nicki and the Crew
 "Nicki and the Crew" Rockin' Christmas Single

 "Nicki and the Crew" has a swinging boogie woogie sound that is pure holiday fun.  The charming and infectious vocals of the Treetop Sisters soar as they celebrate the night before the night before Christmas with Santa (that's right, they call him Nicki) and his lively co-workers.  As Nicki swings from the chandelier and tinsel decorates reindeer noses, the North Pole comes alive with fun before buckling down to business the next day when "Nicki and the crew are gonna give it away."  Add this new song to the list of holiday classics that are so much fun to sing along with - too much fun to wait for a whole album so they are releasing it as a single.


About the Treetop Sisters
The Treetop Sisters are real life siblings Ruby, Pearl and Jade Ayers.  These multi-talented girls work with their equally talented parents, Terry Ayers and Trisha Lee, to create the group's special sound and the look of their signature series of animated videos, which have introduced the sisters into the children's music market.

Check out their videos:     Treetop Sisters

Stay tuned!  New "Nicki and the Crew" video 
coming after Thanksgiving.

This CD will be available at iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, Google Play Store and other sites online. SRV:$0.99

   


My Thoughts
What a fun single to listen to while getting into the holiday spirit while wrapping packages and baking in the kitchen with the kids this Christmas. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving,

 Happy Thanksgiving...


Happy Thanksgiving 2013
Here are a few of my Dollar Tree sun thingies, Santa Gnome, gourds, pumpkins(left over from Halloween) and Thanksgiving Cactus. The Thanksgiving Cactus bloomed early this year and the Christmas one is beginning to bloom too. 

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4,5

Wishing you all a happy & safe Thankgiving.

May God bless you all...

Holiday Gift Guide: The Magical Tale of Friendship - Lost and Found DVD

LOST AND FOUND DVD SRV $9.98


"Lost and Found should serve as an example to all children's filmmakers
that kids don't need a fast-paced cartoon or disrespectful characters to become engaged in a story. The pace of the 30-minute production is perfect,
as is everything else about it."
 -- Parents Choice (Gold Award Winner)

BASED ON THE BEST-SELLING BOOK FROM CELEBRATED AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR OLIVER JEFFERS COMES A MAGICAL TALE OF FRIENDSHIP AND ADVENTURE, WINNER OF MORE THAN 60 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS!

LOST AND FOUND 

This Perfect Holiday Gift is Available on DVD ($9.98srp)
and Digital Platforms Now - Only from Entertainment One! 



 



Lost and Found Official Trailer


October 30, 2013 - Families will embark on an imagination-inspiring journey alongside a pair of unlikely companions when LOST AND FOUND, the deeply-heartwarming and critically-acclaimed animated film, arrived in the U.S. for the first time ever on DVD (SRP $9.98) and Digital platforms on October 15, 2013 from Entertainment One and is available now to place on every child's Holiday Gift List!  A Winner of more than 60 international awards, as well as a coveted Parents Choice Gold Award, LOST AND FOUND will also air as a holiday special on Nick Jr.®

Based on the internationally best-selling children's book by award-winning author, Oliver Jeffers, whose newest book has just captured the #1 spot on the New York Times Best Sellers list, the standout production was adapted and directed by Philip Hunt and features endearing narration by Academy Award®-winner Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter, Gangs of New York, Moulin Rouge), stunning CGI animation from Studio AKA, and a charming musical score by esteemed composer Max Richter (Shutter Island).  LOST AND FOUND brilliantly transports viewers from the 2D pages of the storybook to a rich and immersive world that will have both young and old alike mesmerized and brought to tears.  With more than five dozen international awards under its cap, the remarkable film is sure to find its way into audiences' hearts with its universal and timeless message of the true value of friendship.  

Friendship


Originally inspired by the real-life story of a little boy in Belfast, Ireland, who somehow managed to sneak a penguin out of the zoo during a class trip and all the way home to his bathtub before anyone noticed, LOST AND FOUND tells the unforgettable story of a little boy who one day finds a penguin on his doorstep.  Assuming that the unexpected visitor must have lost his way, the thoughtful and determined boy takes up the noble task of bringing the penguin back home - even if it means rowing all the way to the South Pole! But when the pair finally arrive at their destination, the boy soon discovers that maybe the penguin wasn't really lost after all.  Maybe he was just lonely... And maybe he wasn't the only one. 

Gentle and uplifting in equal measure, LOST AND FOUND provides families with a welcome alternative to today's more frenetic on-screen entertainment options for kids. In addition to the movie, the DVD contains a special "Making of" featurette, showcasing interviews with Jeffers, as well as key members of the production and creative teams. The segment offers viewers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the various elements that seamlessly come together to bring this dynamic film to memorable life.

Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
My Thoughts

Oliver Jeffers the author of Lost and Found presents us with a beautiful heartfelt story about friendship which was inspired by a true story of a boy and a penguin from Belfast, Ireland. It seems while on a school field trip to the local zoo, one of the students sneaked a penguin out and kept him safely in his bathtub. Well, there are a many changes in Lost and Found but the simple fact is that it is truly a wonderful story! 

You must not forget to watch the featurette. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Making-of Featurette. The crew takes you deep inside the story beginning with the author, Oliver Jeffers and all of the behind the scenes contributors with the juicy details of all the in's-and-out's of the whole movie. It is quite amazing.

Lost and Found is a magical movie to share this holiday season. I hope you will watch the movie trailer posted above and consider adding this wonderful movie to your home library or sharing it with that special someone in your life. Bravo! I give Lost and Found five big shiny stars!

    My Thoughts

    'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la la... I am getting into the spirit. Are you ready to celebrate Christmas? Well, one way that  can help is to pull out the holiday videos and check the cable lineup for the upcoming holiday movies. And, you could always add new ones that are family fun and safe for all Lil' eyes and ears to hear and watch. I have a suggestion! Check out Scholastic Storybook Treasures Merry Christmas, Splat ... and more winter stories on DVD. (Ages 3 -7)

    Merry Christmas Splat ... and more winter stories has four wonderful stories for the whole family to enjoy this holiday season. The featured story is Merry Christmas, Splat which is written and illustrated by Rob Scotton. John Keating is the narrator and he does a great job. This is a sweet story about a cat named Splat. He works overtime trying to be good so he won't miss out on getting presents for Christmas. Maybe one of your little one can related with Splat?  The other three stories are just as entertaining and offer good clean holiday humor.

    Who is Snowflake Bentley? Where did he live? Why is he important? You can learn the answers to all these questions and more when you watch Snowflake Bentley by Jaqueline Briggs Martin, illustrated by Mary Azarain and voice artist Sean Astin(Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).

    Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas by Julie Rawlinson and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen are the remaining two stories from this DVD collection. You will find this holiday DVD filled with  humorous fun, educational and enriching for the whole family.
