The Christmas Chronicles--Now Streaming on Netflix!


The Christmas Chronicles is a wishful, hilarious, family festive adventure. This is our first live action family film with a well established director and big profile actor in Kurt Russell. From producer Chris Columbus (“Home Alone”, "Harry Potter") and director Clay Kaytis ("The Angry Birds Movie"), The Christmas Chronicles, tells the story of sister and brother, Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis), whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about. After staking out Santa’s arrival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly derail Christmas. As their wild night unfolds, Kate and Teddy work together with Santa - as you've never seen him before - and his loyal Elves to save Christmas before it's too late.


I was able to preview The Christmas Chronicles a few days early.  It was really great!  There is a great surprise at the end, that I won't ruin, cause no spoilers on my blog!  The acting is wonderful and the holiday message is touching.  I encourage you to watch it with your whole family during the holiday season!

Dr. Jacobs Naturals Product Review


I recently received a few of Dr. Jacobs Naturals products for review.  I had never heard of them before, but am really impressed with the quality of the items.  Their products are all natural, free from harsh chemicals, and safe enough to use on pets.

The first thing I took out of the box was a Castile Bar Soap in Luscious Lavender.  Lavender is my favorite scent, but it is very difficult to find products that actually smell like real lavender flowers.  Well, this Dr. Jacobs Castile Soap does! It smells just like the lavender that I grow in my garden.  It feels and smells great when using it and rinses off cleanly without any residue.





The second thing I removed from the box was the Dr. Jacobs Naturals Castile Liquid Soap in Eucalyptus.  The one I received came in a pump, making it perfect for a hand soap and face wash on our bathroom sink.  I think it smells a bit like tea tree oil, but only lightly; I find it a pleasant scent.  My son has a habit of still having soap suds around his wrists when he is done washing his hands, I haven't noticed that with this soap.  It rinses off cleanly and is gentle enough to use on our face at bedtime too.



The final item that I took out of the box was the Dr. Jacobs Naturals Castile Liquid Soap in Almond Honey.  It smells like candy or cookies! It would be a great winter scent.  It also, just like the other two rinses off well, without residue left behind.



There is an offer for free shipping with a $20 purchase on their site with code FREESHIP20, check it out now; they have some wonderful products!
