Usborne Books and More

One thing that most of my close friends and family know about me is that I am frugal….cheap…I cut coupons and I pinch pennies. There is one thing that I am very happy to invest in and that is my kids, their education, and their futures!

Usborne Books and More are our favorite books!! There are so many great options in all categories….tons of non-fiction, interactive books that we use in homeschool.

I have not found the quality of Usborne in any other books. I recently ordered through another big name company that does tons of book fairs at schools and yes, I can buy several books for $2 each.  BUT, when I compare those books to my Usborne books, it is clear to me that Usborne will last through all of my kids and beyond…whereas I’ll be lucky if the other books last a single school year.  Usborne are not only stronger quality books but I love the illustrations, the colors, all the interactive options. I want the best for my girls and as far as reading/books go, Usborne comes out on top every time!

If you aren’t familiar with Usborne, I really urge you to check them out!  For us, it made the most sense for me to become a consultant….we buy so many books that we NEED the 25% discount that you get as a consultant.

Grinch Party!

I officially have a 5 year old!!  Her Grinch party was a huge success!  We decorated in ll green and ate green foods (guacamole, grapes, green apples, green peppers, cucumbers, etc).  We ordered a Grinch piñata and it turned out much bigger and better than expected…it was so much fun but the piñata was too strong and the kids needed a little help breaking it open.  Mom worked really hard to make a “pin-the-heart-on-the-Grinch” game and while it turned out well, the kids were too busy and we never actually played the game.  Daddy made her a Grinch cake too…he’s got skills.

Avery had a great birthday and a great party.  I loved the challenge of the random theme where I had to put a little more thought into it.  Success all around!
