Dress as A Veggie with VeggieTales and Family Christian!

Halloween. It is one of my girls favorite 'holidays'. They absolutely LOVE dressing up, every day, in magical outfits and being transformed into beautiful princesses, rockin pop-stars, superheros, or whatever is their fancy for that day. Halloween makes it even more magical because they get to go out in their cuteness and get loads and loads of candy. As much as they love dressing up, I think it's the candy they love so much.
MG has ALWAYS been some sort of princess. Until last year. She HAD to be a Pink SuperGirl.
Nothing else would do. I was so shocked she did not pick a princess costume. This year, she is back to a princess and will be Ariel, The Little Mermaid. She will be the mermaid version. A few years ago, her sister was the princess version.
Oh my goodness! Look at my baby! Gosh she has grown SO MUCH the past two years. Mads has always varied her costumes each year. Some years she is a princess, once she was a pink butterfly fairy princess, last year she just HAD to be Mother Nature.
This year she will be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I don't remember her ever watching the movie. I'm not really sure why she decided to go with Dorothy. But, no other costume would do. We went to three different stores hunting it down. THREE STORES! I told her before we went into the 3rd that if we didn't find it, she was just going to have to pick something else. There was one left, it just happened to be in her size. That girl got LUCKY! 
Are you looking for a last minute costume idea this year? Because of my girls' love of everything princess, and VeggieTales, I decided to piece together the CUTEST SweetPea Beauty look. This is such an EASY costume! All it takes is a pretty pink 'princess' dress, pretty pink earrings, a green undershirt and a pretty blue ribbon for their hair. I can't wait to show the girls this costume! They are going to FLIP!

History Made Easy

I was compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.

When we started this Homeschool journey, one of the questions that kept popping up in my head was how am I going to get all the history in. There is just SO MUCH to learn. I purchased a first edition history book, from the 70s (HA!), that I LOVE, but I still wanted to build on that.

I remembered that Mads absolutely loved the 'Who Was' books, so I started there. We started out learning about the early states, so I started with the Johnny Appleseed book. I loved that what we were covering in our lesson, was also covered in the fun book we were reading.
I also LOVE that these books have a bit of science tossed in! I had planned on just doing whatever for science this year, and well....that hasn't worked out very well yet. Tying in our history lesson, with a science lesson that goes along with it is just an added bonus! We also plan to do a cooking lesson (hello math and more science), we are going to make applesauce and apple butter.
There are just SO MANY side lessons we can do with just this book alone! I can't wait to dig into the others and see what all we can do with them! The books are not very long at all. We only read about 2-3 pages per day to spread it out and make it last through the length of our history lesson. That also gave us time to do any special projects to go along with the book.
While my friends at Family Christian no longer carrier the 'Who Was' line, they still have a WONDERFUL selection of other great history books for kids!

Here are my Top 5 Supplemental History Books for Kids:
