Free Coloring Pages & Books For Mom

Have you joined the “adult coloring page” craze? I love these things! (And not just because they are “trendy” or “in” right now.) I used to color in Precious Moments and Disney coloring books when I had free time as a teenager and I remember my dad picking on me for it. 😉 But I’ve always found coloring or doodling relaxing, and now that it’s popular, there are so many fun and challenge grown up coloring pages to choose from. I saw a cartoon going around Facebook at Christmas, with a kid excitedly opening a laptop or ipad or something,

Want to Watch the Marvel Hero Movies in Order?

*Post contains Amazon affiliate links.* We have some superhero fans in this house. We are all pretty fond of Iron Man, and Thor is pretty cool, too. Well, so is Captain America. And Hulk.

A year of movie rentals – A review.

The end of the year is coming, and I thought I’d do something fun and take a look back at all the movies I have watched this year. We rarely go to the theater, but rather we wait for the movies to come out in the rental store. Movie night is a family tradition we try to do on Sunday nights, finances allowing. How else can you entertain a family of five for under ten dollars? Now,… Big Daddy and I have different taste in movies (and different standards as well) so some of these are movies that he picked
