Fun with Santa 2011

     This year we found out Santa Clause was going to be at our local McDonald's, so me, the hubby, and the 2 girls decided to go get us an ice cream.  What a better way to visit with Santa!  Hailey acted as if she was terrified at 7 years old, but Riley the 3 year old was esstactic.  In the following pictures below you will get to see the wonderful time we had with Santa and McDonald's!

This Riley River Moye age 3 years old sitting on Santa's lap!

This is me and Riley on Santas lap, and I'm not telling how old I am , LOL

This is David and Riley!  Looks like Riley is sticking her tongue out, hahaha

This is Riley 3 and Hailey 7!  Hailey wouldn't go alone!

     We had such a blast and a time to remember forever!  Do you go see Santa?  Where and did he make you sit on his lap like he did me and daddy?  This is one of my favorite times of year!  Just remember without CHRIST there would be NO CHRISTmas!

From the Moye Family to yours we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
May God bless each and everyone of you and be safe!

Disney Vacation Deals

     Mr Winter is upon us and all I can think about is how nice it would be  to take a nice vacation in the South where the Sun never seems to let you down!  Here I will give you several great reasons why you should plan a vacation at Walt Disney World with some great Disney vacation specials!  Guests of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin enjoy many unique and special Disney benefits and you can read about them here:

     You can receive extra magical hours just by staying here at the Disney resorts!  Who couldn't use an extra hour in the morning or maybe even a up to three hours in the afternoon after the park would normally close.  With a valid them park ticket and a resort ID for each adult this is just one benefit you can enjoy.  The lines are GREATLY decreased, so you have more time to ride and enjoy rather than waiting in line.

     Another great benefit is transportation from the resort to the park.  You can a nice cruise to Spcot or to Hollywood Studios or even take the shuttle bus anywhere within Walt Disney Resort.  The transportation runs about every 15 to 20 minuites so if you missed this one there is a very short wait time for the next one!

     For that golfer we have adanced tee times.  They have five championship golf courses plus a nine hole walking course.  There are currently ninety-nine more breathe taking holes and even more in progress for those staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.  Sometimes it just isn't a vacation if you haven't played golf.

     Then there is my favorite disney vacation special!  You haven't been and seen until you have visited with the characters in Walt Disney, however with the Disney vacation special you can dine with them.  This is a benefit for the young and old alike, there are no age limits and for everyone to enjoy!  Just don't forget the camera so you can get those personal and together photos with the characters, and get their autographs.  In most of the gift shops you can purchase an autograph book and they make great souveneirs.

    If you haven't decided yet or maybe you're still not sure go check out Disney vacation special and see what you think!  You will not be disappointed, I promise!

Disclaimer:  This post is my opionion andof no others.  Also these pictures that are posted here are the property of Walt Disney World and do NOT belong to me.  I only used them to give you a better idea what I was trying to express.

Christmas gifts that just keep giving


  As a business owner I look around to find the perfect gift to give friends, family, associates, and customers.  I have  found the perfect place to get your gifts at a great price and they are customized to your company.  My husband and myself own an Electrical company find that when you leave a little something with the customer along with great service the customer now only calls you back but they tell people about you! 

     With Vistaprint I was able to get those perfect Gifts for Christmas and for any occasion and at a great price!  You can get anything from business card, coffee mugs, to T-shirts. And of course with the New year approaching what better gift than to give someone a Calender!  The Calenders  are great gift ideas simply because the customer always has your ad at their fingertips.

    Vistaprint also has sticky note pads, postcards, yard signs, banners, and you name it, and you can get it from Vistaprint.  They have everything your company needs and even if you don't own your own company you can personalize it to you!  For example a Calender of Family all year long, or maybe a photo of the Grand kids on a mug for Grandparents.  The ideas are endless and you can't go wrong.

Cheerleading Rah Rah Rah

    Did you ever want to become a Cheerleader?  I remember when I was in the sixth grade and our school was having the Cheer leading try outs.  I cried and begged my mother to please let me try out but because she had to work and I had no way home, I couldn't.  We didn't have the money really for us to be involved in extra curricular activities at school, so we had to ride the bus home and entertain ourselves there!

     If you know that special little lady that is wanting to become a cheerleader and you are thinking there is no way I can afford the uniforms and shoes, I have great news for you.  you can go here and find really great deals on Cheap Cheer leading shoes, with many different styles and designs.  They also have the different color slides that go into the shoes so that you can match the school colors, rather than just being plain! 

     You know Cheer leading is a great exercise program for girls to get into, especially if they are involved in any other kind of sports or activities.  Don't let the cost of Cheer leading shoes keep that little girls dream fade.  Even today I watch the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and think "You know that could have been me".  Not really but I would have really enjoyed trying.  If you think you or someone you know would be interested or even if you just want to get some comfortable, cheap Cheer shoes check them out.  You can't go wrong with these prices!

     They also have cheap Lacrosse balls if you have a little man or even a big man that enjoys playing Lacrosse.  So go check them out and see what you think!

Silver Smoke novel release tour

To celebrate the release of a new novel to the Seven Halos series, author Monica Leonelle is doing a Kindle Fire giveaway for Silver Smoke, the first novel in the series! Silver Smoke is the highly-rated (4.8 stars on Amazon) debut novel about the Hallows and the Nephilim, the descendants of archangels and humans. Here's a description of the book:

Brie van Rossum has fame, fortune, and beauty, but there’s one thing she doesn’t have–the name of her mother’s supernatural killer.
The Hallows, descendants of the archangels, don’t think Milena was murdered.. but can Brie trust them when their government, the New Order, wants her dead?
She’d better figure it all out soon…
… because when Brie finds out who she really is, the hunt will begin.
And Milena might not be the only casualty.
Like mother, like daughter…

We'll get to the contest details in a minute, but first, Monica gave us an exclusive excerpt of the book for the blog tour:

A soft smile spread slowly across Brie's face. “Hating each other hasn’t worked out so well for us, has it? Neither has ignoring each other. All that’s left is being friends.”

Rykken swallowed. That wasn’t all that was left, but he didn’t bother to correct her. He rested his chin on the rim of his thumb and index finger. “I’m sorry I was eavesdropping. I did it because Pilot wants me to keep an eye on you when he’s not around.” It wasn’t the whole truth, but it sounded like something Pilot would ask of him.

“It’s okay,” Brie said. “Whatever you overheard tonight, you’re misinterpreting it anyway. I’d appreciate it if you didn’t repeat it to my brother.”

“It sounded serious though. If you need someone to talk to—”

Brie looked up at him. “Maybe,” she said. Rykken tried to keep his features in place to hide his surprise. She smiled at him again, ducking her head. “I do need someone to talk to. And I feel like you’re a part of this anyway.”

“Okay,” he said, pushing his shoulders back. He normally tried not to look at her too much, but tonight it was almost impossible to take his eyes off her. “Let me know when you’re ready.”

Brie turned her marshmallows in the flames. “Rykken,” she said. The way she said his name was so tender and vulnerable and sweet, he could kiss her. “Sirena told me she saw something on your chest—a mark of some sort.”

Rykken’s stomach dropped. He had spent hours in the shower, trying to scrub the crescent moon from the area right below his heart. When the mark didn’t lighten, he tried to put it out of his mind—it was barely visible at practice, and no one had really noticed it besides Sirena.

Brie stared at him. He realized too late that she’d been watching for his reaction, despite his lack of words. “Can I see it?” she asked.

“Not now,” he said.

She kept staring at him. “Has anything... strange happened to you since you got that mark?”

“Like what?”

“Like, are you able to do things you haven’t been able to do before?”

Rykken was startled by her question. “No.” He leaned across his chair, until he was so close to her he could smell the smoke from the fire on her hair. “Brie, what’s going on? Why are you asking me this?”

Brie’s eyes flitted around his face, as if she were trying to look at every inch of it within a single second. “No reason,” she said, but he recognized her disappointment in his answer.
