Stress gets to all of us. In the case of Eddie Brock, our hero in the Venom movie, the stress of losing everything is nothing compared to being the host for the symbiote, Venom. I was able to watch an early digital screening of Venom along with The Equalizer 2 with Denzel Washington. Both movies are perfect stocking stuffers for those action movie loving guys in your life. I’d also say that they are must haves for action and superhero movie fans. Make sure that you pick up The Equalizer 2 on Blu-ray on Walmart.com and also Venom on Blu-ray on Walmart.com. Then carve out some “Guy Time” for your husbands and older sons to watch these movies together. I have a few ways in which you can make that whole experience even better. I’m thinking snacks. More on that below. Continue reading Have an Action-Packed, Adrenaline-Rush, Guy’s Movie Night with Venom and The Equalizer 2 from Walmart

Playing Classic Games and Talking Christmas Traditions

Playing games as a family

We received a set of classic toys from Catholic Central for sponsorship of this blog post. Catholic Central also is providing another set of toys for us to give away to you.

With Christmas less than two weeks away at this point let’s talk Christmas traditions. Growing up Catholic and also raising our kids in the Catholic tradition we certainly have many traditions centered around Christmas. Each year we go to the Christmas Eve vigil or midnight masses at our church. We also have family to our home to share a meal on Christmas Eve.

One of the traditions that I have been excited to do every year is our annual toy collection and donation to Christmas is for Kids. This is something that we have done for ten years. We involve the kids in this project because understanding that helping people however we can is important. So, we save money each month to do a special shopping trip where the kids decide what toys to get for the donations. Toys and Christmas go hand in hand for us so it made the most sense that our charity of choice to work with provides toys to local children each Christmas.

At Christmas is for Kids

Once we go on our shopping trip together and drop off the toys we go to a local shrine called La Salette to see the Christmas lights and then hit Bliss Bros. Dairy for dinner. While we have been collecting the toys and donating them for 10 years it has only been the last 7 or so years that we’ve added in the La Salette and Bliss night. It is one of my favorite things about the Christmas season.

We love toys and games, too. We receive so many toys and games to review. However, sometimes we have the most fun doing silly simple games together. Catholic Central put together these Christmas Fun in 5 Minutes games to play and you don’t need much to do them. Just download the .pdf file and you can start playing silly fun games as you prepare for your own Christmas traditions. It also includes some cool facts about the “whys” and history behind some of the most time-honored Christmas traditions!
