This box is so yummy and filled with everything you need for a family get together or a holiday party.  All though if your family is anything like mine, it won’t last long!

The sausage was so tasty and we were able to try both the beef and spicy beef summer sausage.  We also sampled 6 different kinds of cheeses.  My favorite goodie in the box was the pineapple mustard.  I tried it with every cheese and all the sausage.  It was delicious.  The box didn’t last more than 2 days between my husband, my dad, the munchkins, and I.  They even asked if I could go out and get more ;)

I love this box because it makes a perfect gift for someone and it’s also great to bring to a party!  You can cut up the cheese and sausage and place them on a plate for everyone.

Sesame Street Live! Elmo Makes Music

Yum

In “Elmo Makes Music” Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their Sesame Street friends take to the stage to share their love of music in the latest Sesame Street Live! adventure. 

I had the opportunity to take the girls to Elmo Makes Music at Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale, FL yesterday.

The girls were so excited!

I loved that the show was interactive.  The characters talked to the kids and encouraged answering, singing, clapping, and dancing.

I thought it was very enjoyable to sit through as an adult.  The girls were mesmerized.

I think this is a great show for any age because it is so interactive.  My only suggestion is to bring money!  They were selling Elmo balloons at intermission and they were $10 each! Yes, that is right, $10 per balloon.  I did not get the girls one because I could not justify spending $30 on balloons that would most likely get accidentally let go of in the parking lot.  Even without the balloons they had a fabulous time.  They loved the show and have not stopped talking about!

Del Sol Color Change

Yum

Del Sol is the world’s leading brand of color-changing clothing and accessories. Have fun in the sun with Del Sol shirts, shorts, nail polish, hats, jewelry, hair clips, sunglasses and much more that all change color in the sun. Del Sol’s color-changing products are one color outside in the sun and then return to their original color indoors. Remember hypercolor clothing? It’s just like that – only better. No sweaty blotches all over like hypercolor; rather color-changing clothing changes one color outdoors with sun and another color indoors without sun.

Their products are so much fun!!  I love my shirt and the girls think it’s so cool that it changes in the sun.

It’s magic! Seriously, it’s the magic of Del Sol’s proprietary Spectrachrome® Technology. Spectrachrome crystals reveal their hidden colors when exposed to sunlight. NASA invented it for their space program, and Del Sol enhanced it for everyone under the sun! It’s not rocket science, but then again, maybe it is.

Our favorite product is the nail polish!! We painted our nails a pretty pink and I then I took the girls outside and it changed to purple! I think they must have run from inside to outside at least 10 times.  It was so much fun!!

Nikon Coolpix S6300

Yum

I have been looking for a great camera for awhile.  I had very specific needs and wants.  The main need I had was high quality.  I wanted something that could be enlarged if I had a fabulous shot of one of my munchkins.  I have found THE camera I was dreaming of and it even has features I didn’t know I needed!

The camera is the Nikon Coolpix S6300!  I got mine from Staples!

It takes fabulous action shots! That’s my oldest munchkin, Jayden (#39), playing football!  It also takes great photos of adorable faces!

I am super impressed with the quality at 16.0 Megapixels.  It also has a 10x optical zoom!  I was willing to give up zoom for quality and I don’t have to.  I get both!  It also has a bunch of neat features and modes (beach, night time, snow, fireworks, macro, portrait, food, museum, and many more).  It also has some pretty creative modes too!  One of my favorites is the color select.

The picture above is a present I had wrapped and the “original” picture in standard mode is the top left.  The other pictures are using different color selections.  It makes the photograph black and white and just shows things that are the color you selected.  I have a few samples below in the flower as well as other creative modes such as soft focus, cyan, and black and white.

The center picture of the hibiscus is in the standard mode.  The only feature I have not mastered yet is the 3D mode (bottom right corner).  I am still trying to figure that one out.  My favorite feature is the true panorama!

The two pictures above are 180 degree panoramic shots.  I got the whole football field and spun around in the backyard.  Below is 360 degrees in the backyard.

Every time I look at this I am amazed!

This camera is so easy to use and is small enough to fit in my pocket.  I am thrilled with it and highly recommend it!
