Wordless Wednesday (10/19) - Puppies

Here is a photo of the Mama Dog and 7 puppies that I have been putting my time into. 3 or 4 of the puppies would not be alive today if I wouldn't have taken them in and fostered them. Yes, they really are that cute!!!

My son Matthew was kissing our miracle puppy, Alvin. I love this little guy. I will miss him when he is gone.

Boys Cowboy Costume Review!

We recently received the Boys Deluxe Toy Story 3 Woody Costume for review from! Our four year old son loved it! I put it on him to take some photos and he wore it all day long. We thought about purchasing the cowboy costume accessories and making his costume, but it wouldn't have been the same for him.

CostumeDicounters has a Guarantee on their website that states "If you find an Identical Costume on the web, we will match the price!" How great is that! Every day they have a different discount code at the top of their website! carries costumes for Infants and Children! If your looking for a Disney costume, Yo Gabba Gabba, a cute little Dragon, or a Baby Pumpkin costume, you can find them all here, at CostumeDiscounters! also sell Halloween Costumes for Teens and Adults too! They have Pirate costumes, Angry Birds, Costumes for people who want to dress in a 20's, 30's, 40's, etc. eras and more! If your looking for a Mobster Costume, a 1920's Flapper, Darth Vader, G. I. Joe, Harry Potter, Hello Kitty, Jack Sparrow, or maybe you would like to dress up as your favorite childhood Superhero (Spiderman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Iron Man, Cat Woman, etc.), then CostumeDiscounters has what your looking for!

I just checked their website and Most Costumes prices have been slashed in Half! What a great time to purchase a Halloween Costume for yourself or your children! I will be waiting closer to Halloween from now on to purchase costumes for our children when they are cheaper, that's for sure! I will also be bookmarking for next year!

Christmas is also coming up very quickly! Check out's Christmas items! If your husband, uncle, or grandfather wants to pretend he is Santa Clause this year, you can purchase a Santa Clause costume for them! Some children love to play dress up! Wouldn't you love to watch your little girl's face light up when she opens up a box with a Princess costume inside? If your church is putting on it's very first or annual Manger scene and you are looking for a Mary, Joseph, or Wise Man costume, CostumeDiscounters has it!
