The Best Time to Be a Kid + Win a $2500 Gymboree shopping spree!

Gymboree believes in savoring the special moments, especially during the holidays.  That’s why they are ushering in the holidays with “The Best Time to Be a Kid“, a fun initiative that allows us to tell the unique stories of special family holiday moments.  I’m all about savoring memories with my kids, and since these moments are more and more fleeting {they are growing faster than the speed of light}, I get excited about any chance to share their #besttimetobeakid moments.

It’s not surprise that I am delighted to partner with Gymboree, spreading the word about their #BestTimetoBeaKid for the chance to win a $2500 Gymboree shopping spree!  Yahoo!

The Best Time to Be a Kid

best time to be a kid

We make the holidays the #BestTimetoBeaKid with some serious baking.  All of my kiddos love to help in the kitchen, especially my boys.  Baking cookies to give to friends and neighbors is a special tradition we don’t miss during the holidays. It’s a great way to make memories together while learning about acts of service.  It’s such a beautiful thing!

  1. Due to the fact that I have degenerative arthritis in both of my knees, what I’m looking for is a good home workout DVD, that dos&en#8217;t have to much impact on my knees. For example, the P90x video by Tony Horton, seems to be a pretty good workout video. But the only problem, is that I read that it’s not a good workout for those who have arthritis in their knees, due to the high impact exercises. So if anybody know of a good home workout DVD, that is good for arthritis sufferers, PLEASE let me know. Thanks in advance for anybody who helps.
