They have been so good about helping out during our move & keeping the house clean for all the showings. I thought they deserved a little bit of a break. ha! Plus Peter Rabbit Blu-Ray + DVD Combo is now available at Walmart. My kiddos LOVE that movie. We went & saw it when it came out, and we were excited to buy it & add it to our family movie night collection. It’s a fun movie that the entire family will love & watch over & over again!

        Good morning! I have used Dial® brand soaps for years. Did you know that they’ve been one of America’s most loved soap brands for 70 years? Recently they have come up with a breakthrough new line-up, Dial Complete® 2 in 1 Moisturizing & Antibacterial Beauty Bar and Dial Complete® 2 in 1 Moisturizing & Antibacterial Foaming Hand Wash. Yep! That’s both antibacterial AND moisturizing. So now, there’s 2 in 1. Yay! It worked great for the clean up after making this Homemade Finger Paint. So, I won’t mind at all when my kiddos want to do this craft over & over & over again. The recipe is easy & the mess is easy to clean off their little hands with Dial®!
