Our Review:

It was really easy to set everything up! We love the advanced features like motion and sound detection, and automatic night vision so we can see what’s going on both day and nightOne of the features I really like is the mobile app. All you have to do is scan the bar code provided to download the app on your phone. It's so cool being able to not only hear our grand-baby but we can see her too. If she starts to get fussy you can talk to her through the two way audio.

I was impressed that it came with blue and pink color accent rings, perfect for a boy or girl.  It can also play soothing lullabies to help calm the baby down and help her sleep. Since we are grandparents, I can see us using this to record video clips that we can share with our friends or other family members. This camera is much more advanced than the baby monitors I had for my kids when they were young. It is definitely a must have for all parents with new babies!

Tommee Tippee Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Tommee Tippee, I got to review some of their fantastic products!!

I was so excited when our items got here...

First, what do we do about milk when mom leaves baby with grandma for a few?

That's no problem with this great product...

Mom can use the closer to nature manual breast pump to give baby all of the benefits of her breast milk, even when she's not there.

It features a soft-touch silicone cup and how wonderful that it is quiet, discreet and easy to control. The BPA-free pump comes in just 3 pieces, making it quick and easy to assemble and clean. We love that this set also came with a microwave sterilizer box!

Next we love the new collection of pacifiers that are approved by babies....

The symmetrical orthodontic nipple has been specially designed to help optimize baby acceptance.

Nipple shape is more like a bottle nipple, for a more familiar feeling for baby. These are BPA free and come in different age stages. We love the cute designs they have to pick from. The nighttime ones even have a glow in the dark ring!

What bottles are best when it's time to feed precious baby?

Closer to Nature bottles of course! They are intuitively designed for easier and more natural feeding. The super-sensitive anti-colic, anti-gas valve helps reduce gas and colic when feeding. BPA & Phthalate free and easy to hold bottle for maximum comfort.

With Closer to Nature Feeding Bottles, switching between breast and bottle feeding becomes easier than ever before. Together with the bottle’s super-sensitive Easi-Vent valve, this encourages your baby’s intuitive feeding action for comfortable, relaxed feeding.

Since 1965, Tommee Tippee has earned a reputation for its clever ideas, product quality and simply intuitive designs that promote natural development at every age, stage and feeding need. My family is really impressed with each one of the items we got!

Today, Tommee Tippee innovations provide comfort for babies and peace of mind for parents in 45 countries around the world. Make sure to visit them on Twitter and Facebook!

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 Blu-ray Review...

YE-HAW Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 on Blu-ray!

Oscar® Winner Keith Carradine* (Cowboys & Aliens) stars alongside a young, popular cast that includes Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand) , Jade Pettyjohn (American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars), and Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) in this inspiring second chapter of the beloved Cowgirls ’N Angels story!

After she receives unexpected news about herself, a 17-year-old girl (Ramm) experiences an exciting, yet challenging life in and out of the rodeo circuit in this wonderful coming- of-age story. This DVD is filled with heart, horses and high-reaching adventure. “Cowgirls ’N Angels: Dakota’s Summer” is an uplifting reminder that with courage, friendship and passion, anything is possible.

Special Features: 

Behind The Scenes of Dakota's Summer

Street Date:April 15, 2014
Prebook Date:March 19, 2014
Screen Format:Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English DTS-HD MA 5.1
Subtitles:English TXT/English SDH/ Latin Spanish/Quebecois
U.S. Rating:PG
Total Run Time:114 minutes
Closed Captioned:Yes

Our Review:

We really liked Cowgirls ’N Angels 2: Dakota's Summer. There is a lot of heartfelt moments in this movie. I liked all of the trick riding the girls would do. It's pretty impressive how they can hang from the side of a running horse like that with one leg. Wow, that looks really hard!

When Dakota first gets to her Grandfather's ranch she isn't happy to be there. But as the summer goes on she forms a bond with a young girl from a foster home. Which brings me to another part I liked is when all of the kids come from the foster home to help with the mini horses. That's so nice of the ranch to give those kids a place they can learn about horses and have fun. It helped make them feel like there are people that care about them. I love to see how Dakota realizes that her family has always been there for her throughout her life.

There is a behind the scenes special feature on the Blu-ray that is interesting to watch also.

E-Cloth Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to e-cloth, my family is excited to tell you about some of their awesome products!

e-auto by e-cloth

Thinking it might have something to do with cars, the boys ran to the box to see what we got...

First, check out the e-auto Dual Action Sponge and the e-auto Dry and Shine Cloth!

The cool sponge is for cleaning grease and dirt from all bodywork, bumpers, lights, trim, chrome and glass. The orange side removes dirt and grime. The stiffer fibers of grey side remove hardened dirt and insects, and tar spots, without scratching. After using the sponge we used the super absorbent dry and shine cloth. It provides a perfect streak-free finish by removing excess moisture and residue that ordinary chamois leave behind.

Next check out the Interior Car Cleaning Kit...

I have a brand new car that I was excited to use this on. The blue cloth worked excellent on my windows and the green cloth on my dashboards, inside doors, and leather upholstery. I love the water atomizer and laundry storage bag this great set came with also!

We love that e-auto products are so powerful they can clean using just water. They will also perform well with a small amount of regular cleaning liquid. Car Cleaning becomes healthy cleaning with an e-cloth. It removes more than 99% of bacteria with just water.

The e-cloth microfiber cloths have 1.6 million fibers per square inch. They are guaranteed for 300 machine washing's. If you take care of them, they will last for years. The inside of my car now has sparking, streak-free windows and a shining interior!

Watch the video below to find out more about an e-cloth...

Excellent more effective car cleaning with less effort.

We are also in love with the brilliant e-cloth for pets line! Rue, Diesel and Angel are all very happy that they got some dog pampering time!

Look how cute, Diesel loves his new towel...

First we used the Grooming Mitt. It removes dirt, bacteria and loose hair. Since our dogs shed a ton, we really like that it has specially created grooming fibers to remove loose hair. It also provides a gently massaging action that leaves fur with a glossy natural sheen. The cream side is great for grooming around their face.

Next we gave them a nice bath and then used the Large Cleaning and Drying Towel. It quickly removes and locks away dirt, mud and bacteria. This towel also absorbs twice as much moisture as a conventional towel and dries four times more quickly. My family loves the large size and how incredibly soft it is! It's also great that both of these products are guaranteed for 300 machine washes!

All of these products are going to be such a huge help at our house. Thank you e-cloth for the amazing products and customer service! Make sure and visit e-cloth on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube!

Now here's the really exciting part...

Our Review:

The Jungle Book 2 is an awesome family movie to watch! The first Jungle Book has always been a favorite of ours so we couldn't wait to get part 2 on Blu-ray. We love all of the music and singing in it. There are some good songs that make you want to sing along with them. Especially the classic from the first film "The Bare Necessities". It was fun to see Baloo and Mowgli reunite and start having fun with each other in the jungle.

We laughed when Mowgli was talking about the man village, "all you ever hear is rules, rules, rules, work, work, work. Baloo says watch your language kid". Another good part is when the snake was trying to get to Mowgli when he was singing. He kept getting rocks smashed on him and other funny things happened to him every time he tried to bite Mowgli. The Vultures were cracking me up when they were teasing Shere Khan about being beaten by the man cub in the first movie. People of all ages will love this Blu-ray!

The special features have sing along songs, music videos, deleted scenes and more!

Our Review:

We love the Little Rascals characters! Each one of them are so cute and funny. They always have good intentions when they come up with a plan but it backfires and they end up getting into trouble. Alfalfa is hilarious with his one piece of hair that sticks up in the back. I always tell my boys they look like Alfalfa when their hair is sticking up. One of my favorite parts of the whole movie is when the Rascals have the pet care business. The pet wash was an awesome idea and I loved it. They ended up dying all of the animals green including a cute little pig.

We also liked when they tried baking a red velvet cake with pieces of red velvet fabric. They end up adding too much yeast along with too much of every other ingredient. The look on the kids faces as the cake kept getting bigger and bigger was so funny. The cake gets really huge and then explodes with a little help from a fork. There are plenty of laughs in this movie. It's the perfect family film that everyone will love!

The Blu-ray special features include a gag real (which I always love to watch), deleted scenes and more!
