Smile For Santa Photo Outtakes

Check out this carnival we just entered over at DesignHER Momma. Great idea!

We readily admit our photo isn't near as good as the hostess's own entry. See here. BUT, this one of our boys makes us laugh...
LA "hugging" Boatboy. Which is really just a brother bear belly hug so that he can hurry up and get done and get his reward for being so good. Marshmallows!

More on the rest of our little photo shoot once we sift through the 70-some shots we snapped in two minutes.

If you are looking for a functional snack container look no further. The Munchie Mug is so great and my little guy loves it!

Here are a few things that differ from every other snack trap we have in our home.

* The Munchie Mug features a screw on top that makes it very difficult for the children to open. My little guy has tried and has had no luck. YEAH for no more messes in the back seat, right?

* It has a patened fabric closure that your child reaches through and it conforms to their hand, preventing spills. And a solid lid is included to keep the snacks fresh when the Mug is not being used! It really is such a great product. It is also 100% made in the USA and 100% recyclable.

Want One Less Mess?

Buy it - For you or a friend in need for $12.95

Win it - Leave your email address and a comment telling me your favorite feature this Munchie Mug has to offer. Any stories about messes your tot has made would be great to read as well! :)

I will close the giveaway December 10th. Be sure to check back for many more giveaways to come!


Winner is # 38! Congratulations!

I LOVE the fabric sleeve I have avoided snack cups with both kids because of the hard plastic tops and the design looks like it would get chubby finger stuck. Thanks for the entry! I have a toddler mess story but it isn't one a munchie mug could solve... is that okay? I was driving home from the grocery store YESTERDAY and I kept smelling blueberries. I adjusted my rear view mirror to see my sweet innocent 16 month old son had gotten into my bag and opened a yogurt and had dumped it all over himself. I caught him mid "sip" and he froze and stayed like that until we got home with his eyes closed. I think he believes if he closes his eyes I can't see him?? I never realized how much yogurt those little cups held, I didn't even know where to begin!tonyamcrain [at] aol [dot] com

The Giving of Thanks Hoosier Tour

Our long Thanksgiving weekend was full of much travel, much fun and very little stress. Sounds a bit oxymoronic from most people as travel and time with family typically equates to rising blood pressures and tempers, but not so for us.

All the boys of BPM.
LA and Boatboy with their Great Grandma Grace.

Tryptophan coma? Nah, this was taken at about 10:30am.

On to the other Great Grandma's (& Pa's)...more affectionately known as The Farm.
LA takes his first ever picture with a smidge of help from his Dadda. We call this one..."Aunt Eesha!"

Reading some extremely cool books Great Aunt Doris got him.

Mrs Blonde has a tradition of making a gingerbread house with the other chicks from her family.
Hers was totally the best. :)
Momma, Nana and the boys at BW3's before the Circle of Lights ceremony.
The entire BPM family. Or, what you can see of us anyway.
All bundled up and ready to "go home." This shot was taken about 3 minutes before the big "switch" got flipped on the Monument lighting all 18,567 lights (completely made up number). Followed by fireworks. And, somewhere in the middle of all of that, both boys started bawling! Guess late bedtimes, juxtaposed naptimes and cold night air brings on a bit of sensitivity to the wee ones. Nonetheless, a wonderful weekend!
