Ben the Rooster Giveaway

A real conversation in our house:

Hallie: "Daddy I got a letter! It's Ben the Rooster!"

Daddy: "Do you like Ben the Rooster?"

If you aren't familiar with Ben the Rooster, you need to be! Ben is a subscription service Pen Pal for kids ages 2-8 that teaches the importance of literacy.

Twice a month Hallie receives an adorable postcard from Ben telling her about something fun and exciting happening in his life on the farm, then Ben always leaves an open ended question for your child to answer.  Enclosed in the letter is also a stamped reply card so your child can write back to Ben and decorate their own postcard to mail back.

Hallie loves getting mail,she loves reading, and she loves coloring, so this service has been a TRIPLE WIN in our book! So if you haven't checked out Ben, I highly recommend doing so today! You can find Ben on his Website, Instagram and Facebook.

Also Ben was so nice to offer ONE of my readers his brand new HOLIDAY PACKAGE for FREE! The Holiday Package includes a 6 month subscription to the postcards AND a 2017 Coloring Calendar so your child can have fun with Ben ALL YEAR LONG!

Hallie can't wait to get her Postcards from Ben each month and she knows you'll love him too!! To enter the giveaway, follow the easy rafflecopter steps below! Good Luck!!!

Hallieween 2016

Another Halloween is in the bag, and Hallie really enjoyed this one! She had a blast running to each house getting candy and was so polite saying please and thank you! She totally rocked her Ariel Costume and insisted that Mommy be Belle. She even enjoyed watching Mommy and Daddy carve the pumpkin, but in true princess fashion, refused to touch the pumpkin guts! All in all, it was a wonderful Halloween! 

 Top and Mermaid skirt: Carken Designs Mermaid Doll: Lunnita Studio   Crown: Mommy Made :)

 Of course a dinglehopper photo!

Our Kitty Pumpkin, Jack.  Every time she passed him she would yell, HI JACK! 
I have to say, Belle was the perfect costume to hide my bandages from my surgery!

Princess Hair

I was so excited to find out I was having a girl! Immediately my dreams of having tea parties and buying dresses seemed more of a reality as soon as the technician said "It's a girl".  I couldn't stop thinking of all of the fun girly things I did as a child that now I would get to do with Hallie! One of the things I have been waiting to do with Hallie is use sponge curlers in her hair!

So Imagine my surprise when Hallie realized at 2, that she "Didn't have princess hair" and wanted to know how we could "fix it!" A few weeks ago,  Hallie saw a photo on instagram of a little girl with sponge curlers in her hair, and I decided it was time to introduce Hallie to the magic of "Overnight Curls"

To my surprise after bath last night, Hallie sat very still and let me put the curlers in!

 We got the curlers in in record time, however Mommy probably needs to look up some tips on where and how to place them for next time.  Hallie did feel incredibly special in her curlers before bed though.  It was pretty cute watching her run around in them letting them bob up and down!

Now getting her to sleep was a lot harder than I expected! She kept saying "I can't lay my head down!" but she didn't want to take the curlers out because she desperately wanted "Princess Hair" She finally passed out on me around 9:30 and I moved her to her crib.

She was so excited to wake up and take the curlers out this morning! Like I said, Mommy needs a little practice, but they did turn out pretty adorable! And every time she sees herself in a mirror, she says "Oooh a Princess!"

Oh Princess Hallie! You make your Momma's heart so happy! To see you enjoying all the same things I did as a child brings me so much joy!
<3 Kelly and Hallie
