Kung Fu Panda 2 Review and Giveaway

Hey Everybody,
It's been awhile since I have done a review! It seems like everything kicked it up a notch around here.
Redd recently began 3rd grade, Rusty is in 1st, Elijah decided he wanted to learn so I have to sit with him to avoid having to reteach him stuff later and Miya, well she wants to do 'school' too which is always interesting.
Life is busy and I love it! I really do not know how the big-time bloggers do it.  I'm sure organization has something to do with which is not my strong point!

Anyway, we recently had the opportunity to try out a new prize pak from My Blog Spark. You may have noticed that during the spring spin fighter toys featuring Kung Fu Panda 2 characters including Po, Tigress, Shifu, Monkey, Lord Shen, Mantis, Crane and Viper were found inside specially marked boxes of participating General Mills cereals: Cocoa Puffs®(11.8 oz.), Trix (10.7 oz.), Golden Grahams®(12 oz.), Reese´s Puffs®(13 oz.), Cheerios®(14 oz.), Apple Cinnamon Cheerios®(12.9 oz.),
Cookie Crisp®(11.25 oz.), Lucky Charms®(11.5 oz.), Cinnamon Toast Crunch (12.8 oz.) and Honey Nut Cheerios (12.25 oz.).

Our prize pak included Honey Nut Cheerios with a  Kung Fu Panda 2 spin fighter toy and the original Kung Fu Panda movie.  Our own movie was wearing out so this was great timing!

My Blog Spark is graciously offering a prize pak to one of my readers! This will be a fast giveaway so hurry and sign up!  The giveaway will end Monday June 11, 2011 at 12:00 P.M. EST and you will only have 24 hours to respond once I email the winner.
To enter this giveaway to one or more of the following!
1. Be a subscriber.
2. Write about this on twitter or facebook or your own blog and leave a link in your comment!

That's it!  Have fun!

Hot Wheels and General Mills Cereals Review and Giveaway!!!

On your mark, get set, GOOOO!!!!!
Six words kids love to hear especially after they finally get to rip their car out of the plastic.  You see, I have 3 boys close in age and even though it would probably teach them some important life lesson to pick which boy gets the first car from the first box of cereal we open, I instead kept the cars as we collected them on the counter and waited till I had 3 to give at the same time. Much anticipation, less arguing!!!! I call this a sanity saver in our household.  Elijah wasn't in the mood to race this time but enjoyed putting the stickers on his car.

General Mills and My Blog Spark sent our family 5 boxs of very yummy cereal to start our mornings off right. Imagine the additional excitement as they discovered pullback racer collectible Hot Wheels somewhere in the box.

Oops! Rusty had a false start! Let's try that again.


 Redd still won!

Miya was hoping some Cinnamon Toast Crunch was left.

(Yes, that's laundry ready to be folded in the background!!)

My personal favorite is Lucky Charms. It brings back memories of my childhood days when I would stay with one of my best friends, Mary.  Her mom always had a box of Lucky Charms waiting in their pantry for me.  They lived out in the country, with great woods to play in...a wonderful memory!!! 
My kids loved them all and the delicious cereal did not stay around for long!

After a little racing that did include some great sibling rivalry (code for arguing) they ventured off to race on their own. A lot of great mornings that led up to a great day of playing with Hot Wheels!

To help rev up your mornings, you may enter this giveaway and have a chance to win the following:
Cheerios®14 oz, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®17 oz, Lucky Charms®16 oz, Reese´s Puffs®18 oz,
and Cookie Crisp®15.6 oz.
This giveaway will end Sunday, March 20, 2011 at midnight EST.
You may do any of the following to gain entries, just make sure you leave a separate comma with necessary links for each.
