December Subscriber Freebie

Burr, Winter has finally decided to pop in and say Hi to us in the south. The last few chilly mornings I've had one song in mind. "I really must go.....ahh but you'll freeze out there" I can't think of anything better than being snuggled up with my love in a cozy buffalo print throw. So that has inspired my December subscriber freebie along with my addiction with my December Daily & just scrapbooking in general. ( I know, I know...I promised to not do another post!) But seriously y'all this has taken over my mind. I'm just so in love with my family, my life, and everything right now that I've just been soaking it in. This freebie can be resized and used for anything. Whether you are a scrapbooker or you are looking for some cute winter art I think this months freebie will work for you.

WannaBe™-When I Grow Up I Want to be a Firefighter EBook Review

Do you have a little one who is eager to climb into a fire truck? Whether you have a little one who is filled with imagination or an older one who is trying to choose a career this ebook is a great tool to expand and explore the life and career of a firefighter. 

The WannaBe™-When I Grow Up I Want to be a Firefighter EBook is part of  an 11 ebook series from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, which focuses on several popular careers.

So let me tell you a few of my favorite things about this ebook. First off it is jam packed with everything you could or would need. Over 70 pages! It's geared towards the 4-10 year age group but really even adults could use it. My kids are 9,5, and 16 mos and they all had activities to do. Yes,even the little one had his coloring page. I love that it covers every subject. We were able to skip a few of our normal subjects and substitute them with the firefighter themed one. It starts with the history of firemen, the gear they use, different jobs in the department and even has the educational requirements handy as well! It truly does hit on every subject it even includes a great science lesson about robots and a fun project to make your own robotic arm model.

The vocabulary list included was one of my favorites we used it for the writing prompt pages and many of the activities we did. I also loved that they included memory verses and tons of games and activities too! In the very back of the book, there's even a list of additional resources full of books and websites you can use to further customize your learning experience.  The kids loved pretending like building inspectors and the bucket brigade game the best! All in all, this was such a fun and easy ready to go lesson that allows you to just focus on the subject for whatever time period you choose & we cannot wait to start on another.

Stuffed White Chicken Enchiladas | Recipes & Cooking

Hands down, Our house favorite at the moment. I stumbled upon the idea of this on Pinterest a few months ago and it took a few times to finally get it JUST RIGHT for us. There were several variations out there but we had to tweak even out favorites and came up with this.  We have used this as a freezer meal by filling the tortillas and freezing them then, making the sauce before serving. We don't find this to save us a great deal of time but we do recommend cooking a large amount of chicken ahead and freezing just like in my freezer video HERE or using a precooked chicken option. So these are Cheesy,Creamy, and STUFFED to the max with chicken! Moved over bland enchiladas! Find the recipes below but be sure to watch the video for helpful tips!
 Mexican Restaurant Rice
4 servings
Boil 2 cups water, add 2 tsp of tomato bullion then add 2 cups minute rice. Remove from heat. Let sit for 5-10 min. covered. Double as needed. Add sauteed onion for more flavor.

Definatly made the trip easier on the wallet. You do need to plan ahead and reserve your day 15 days ahead of time. It was a cool fall day but I did end up with a touch of sunburn, the kids were fine of course! We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed it lakeside after seeing North America then drove to Africa side to end the day. We made a quick video of our trip as well as plenty of photos check em out!
