BoogaBooga Land

My kids and I were given the opportunity to watch Adventures In BoogaBooga Land the other evening. I have a nine year old son and twin five year old sons, so getting all of them to sit down and watch a show is no little feat by any means. But this show did manage to capture their attention the entire time. And we all sang the catchy theme song for days after watching the show. The premise of the show is to show several Biblical parables in the life of Marty and Gerard. My five year olds enjoyed some of the silly scenes and in general enjoyed the shows. My nine year old watched the show with us and said, "okay....what does this have to do with God?!?" So the Biblical lesson is a bit on the subliminal side. After I explained it, he got it. All in all, we give this movie 3 thumbs up and 1 thumb down.

Now back to the adventures in boogabooga land.......

Chex Mix Game Day Snacks!

I was a lucky recipient of a My GetTogether Chex Mix package from General Mills. I call this a party in a box. Seriously, they think of everything from plates and napkins to snacks and a serving bowl. My guests were very excited to sample the 3 different types of chex mix, and I was able to give out money saving coupons to my friends. I think the Honey Nut flavor turned out to be the favorite; it is just the right mix of sweet and salty. Yum Yum!!
We definitely give Chex mix two thumbs up at our party!
