Book Review - God Gave Us So Much


Three Adorable Tales for Children of All Ages!

All three books are available in this exclusive treasury for the price of two!

God Gave Us the World
A brand new addition to this series.
For a limited time, available exclusively in this treasury!
God Gave Us Love
God Gave Us Heaven

Through the eyes of a curious little polar bear, young readers are invited into engaging journeys through the Arctic North Pole to explore some of their most tender-hearted and important questions.

Mama, Papa, and Grampa Bear, the ever-loving and wise guides for Little Cub’s adventures, share with her the incredible miracles of God’s creation and the depths of His love for her.

This limited edition treasury of the best-selling God Gave Us series includes three complete charming tales—one of which is brand new to the series. With heart and humor, the stories reveal the beauty of diversity throughout the world, the incredible gift of love, and the

wonderment of our Heavenly home to come.  

We were first introduced to this adorable little Polar Bear and Family, about two years ago when we found out we were having twins in a routine ultrasound. The ultrasound took place 5 days before my birthday. The Night of my birthday our doorbell rang, it was my dear friend Sharon dropping off a gift for my Birthday...a book. The Book was 'God gave us two' in the book the sweet Polar Bear's Mama gives birth to twins a boy and a girl. The gift was made even more special months later when, we learned we were too having a boy and a girl!

The Little Polar Bear Family quickly became a favorite in our home.
We were so excited to rip opened the package and start reading this 3 in 1 book! My 5 year old son was in love with this book from the moment he saw it! He loves that there is a old Polar Bear cub, and twin Polar Bear cubs...He said it's "Just like Us" :) These books are perfect for him.  He loved this "God might get mad if we hurt our world," Little Cub said.
"I get mad when the twins hurt my stuff." He was able to see that others feel the same way as him:)

I personally love this from God gave us Love:
"God gave us Love, all kinds of love.
The Love of mamas and papas,
the Love between friends and family.
And his Love too."

This would be the perfect addition to any family! These are wonderfully illustrated and full of Gods love! I look forward to adding all the Little Cub books to our family library!!
*God Gave Us So Much:
This is actually a 3-in-1 Limited Edition that includes "God Gave Us the World", "God Gave Us Love" and "God Gave Us Heaven".

Better than a Restaurant!


With three small children we rarely go to Restaurants, not just because they are to busy and wild, but because of the ridiculous price, C'mon $9.99 for a Hamburger? Let's stay home, I personally love when we stay in,  it gives me a chance to create and try so many new things! My family loves my food! My mom is more than happy to stop by for dinner after work!

My Famous (famous in my family;) Turkey Burger!

Baby its cold outside!

 Last weekend we were doing some shopping at a local Children's store. There was a young Mama there that had on the cutest knit headband. As soon as we got home I grabbed my knitting needles and got to work. I decided to give mine my own little flare! : I used a very chunky yard, and opted against using circular needles.


My Yarn -
Lion Brand Hometown USA in Oakland Black
My Needles -
US 17 - 12 3/4 mm needle
-cast on 8 stitches knit until desired length!



Headband took about 1.5 hours to totally complete!
Stitch ends together...There is you head band!
You can add on a flower applique...(or two or three) like I did as well!

Now thats cute!

Tasty Cookies with a twist!


We've all had Peanut Butter Cookies! How about Nutella Cookies??

I used a regular Peanut Butter cookie recipe, but tweaked it by using Nutella in place of Peanut Butter and adding a extra 1/2 of flour!

The cookies came out great, not exactly what I expected...in a good way:). They are not overly sweet, so if you like REALLY sweet cookies, these probably aren't what you would like.

When I make them again, I will make a few changes: I will add 1/8 less of the butter and the sugar, and I will add a 1/4 more Nutella! Trail and Error right!!

Just as they are my kiddos Love them!!!
