You Have Been Hit With a Snowball and Giveaway

The snow is falling all around and the ground is just absolutely beautiful. The weather makes for treacherous driving, but you have to admit that it can be fun playing in.

One of the fun games my girls and I love to participate in is snowball throwing. Oh yea just when you are not looking and SMACK… you are hit! The girls will run just laughing their little hearts out to get ready to throw their next snowball.

So when I heard that there was a petition to try and get Snowball throwing as an event at the Olympics, I was all over this. You see, I have always wanted to be a part of the Winter Olympics since I was a little girl but since graceful is not in my vocab… I have just given up all hopes until NOW. Now, I can throw a mean snowball so I think I should be the first one recruited for this event right? Who is with me?

Go sign the petition and let’s join together so we can all be in the even together. Now if you just feel like you cannot sign the petition now and need to work on your snowball throwing skills, no worries! Coca-Cola has developed an online game to get you prepared and perfect your snowball throwing skills. Let the games begin :).

As you are preparing and perfecting  your skills, I have 5 shirts (You pick your own size) from the IFST and Coca-Cola to giveaway to show you are serious about your snowball throwing skills for this year’s Winter Olympics. Also, guess what? One lucky reader will also win:

Full Disclosure:

Coca-Cola is running an online parody campaign called the ‘International Federation of Snowball Throwing’ designed to generate excitement for the upcoming Olympics and promote TCCC’s Olympic sponsorship in an unexpected way. I was not paid in anyway to write this post. I love snowball throwing so wanted to join in. I may end up with some great Coca-Cola merchandise though :)

Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway!

We are a huge reading family. Each night we take time to sit down for family time and M reads her chapter book to us and then I will read to the girls. I just love having this time each night with the girls. Also, the girls love books. They are always asking for new books and so delighted when they see new books come in.

Cheerios has teamed up with Jon Scieszka and First Book to distribute 100,000 new books to kids in need across the country. Through the 100,000 Book Giveaway, the five states receiving the highest number of votes will each receive 20,000 new books for local kids – and we need your help to decide where the books should be donated!

By answering the trivia questions featured in this challenge, you can help select the states that will receive new books for local kids. For every trivia question you answer correctly now through August 31st, 2010, you can cast one vote for the state you want to receive new books. The more questions you answer correctly, the more votes you cast!

We take so much for advantage and don’t realize how a simple book is wanted so bad by children that just cannot afford them in their household and county school system. We are very fortunate here in our school system for the Pre-K division. Each week a new set of books is sent home in a reading bag for myself to read to L. We were so thrilled when this program started for the first time this year, but I never realized till Cheerios brought to my attention how this is wanted so badly by other states and school systems!

Please take a moment and go to the site and answer some of the trivia questions to cast your votes to where the books should be sent.

Cheerios sent to us through My Blog Spark a gift pack.

100k_book_giveawayAll the books shown above were included and also a box of the Frosty Cheerios. They included a Barnes and Noble gift card as well. Each book was the perfect shape to fit into travel bags for the girls and just the right length. Each night we would read one, and the girls just loved sitting there listening then asking questions at the end. No book is the same, so I really recommend at the end of each book you read to your child, to let them ask questions to see how much of the book they actually do comprehend!

Cheerios through My Blog Spark would like to offer one of my reader’s this same gift pack. All you need to do is:

1. Leave a comment about your reading routine with your family.

Then to receive extra entries:

1. Tweet this contest

2. Facebook this contest

3. Subscribe to our feed

4. Blog about this contest

Leave an extra comment for each entry that you do!

I will close this contest on Dec. 19th at 11:59pm EST.

Full Disclosure: I did receive the Cheerios, prize pack, information, and giveaway from Cheerios through MyBlogSpark.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This is an old-time favorite movie of mine and I was thrilled when Disney announced it was going to be released from the vault. This meant, I was going to get the chance to share a movie that I loved as a child with my girls. Disney released it for the first time ever, on October 6, 2009 on high-definition Blue-ray!

One of the perks about this is that the Blue-ray is packed also with a DVD. That way you can watch the Blue-ray in the living room and then have the DVD for the kids room, your car or even to watch on the computer. All the pictures of the movie have been restored and have 7.1 Digital Theater System Hi-Def Surround Sound. This release includes “Disney Smart Navigation,” allowing the magic and personality of Disney Characters to come to life as never before. “Disney Family Play,” the ultimate interactive Hi-Def experience, offers a variety of immersive games, activityes and unprecedented levels of personalization and customization features, to transform hwo families experience home entertainment together.

Here are some sneak peek pictures of the movie. My girls are loving this.

As you can see, the movie has just been totally transformed with the restoration that Disney has done. Needless to say, this will be a special movie for us for years to come. The girls have always heard about Snow White, but we had never officially watched the movie. Did you know also that this movie is the first film to ever have a motion picture soundtrack and the first film to use music to advance the story. Pretty cool huh?

The highlights of the Blu-Ray combo pack that we are enjoying are:

Highlights about this combo pack:

* Up to 6x better quality than DVD
* Immersive activity with games and special features
* Kid proof-more scratch resistant (can I just say  how awesome this is?)
* Plays both Blu-ray and DVD discs
* Blu-ray also plays on Sony Playstation 3 players

This Diamond Edition of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is priced at $39.99 Suggested Retail Price. This would make a great Christmas Present for that awesome child in your life 😉

My girls were really pleased with the graphics and the interactions you could do on the movie.  Two thumbs up for the One Moms World gang!

Disclosure: We were sent this Combo Pack to review here at One Moms World. We were in no way paid for our review. It comes from our heart as always!
