Holiday Gift Guide- Continuum Games Review And ~~Giveaway~~

Continuum Games, Inc. is a privately owned company with a mission to bring families together through exciting new game concepts that appeal to all generations of game players. First formed by Greg and Niki Hughes in 2007, the company has grown from a small game manufacturing company into a full service game publishing company, distributor and consulting firm. Continuum Games publishes its own line of award winning family games, educational games, party games and travel games and also serve as a distributor to the BEST in class games from independent manufacturers.

In February 2011, Continuum Games joined forces with Around the Table Games, creators of the award winning Family Talk series of products. Around the Table Games founder Beth Daniels has a shared mission to create products that draw families together and appeal to the needs of today’s busy families. Both Greg and Beth are parents who bring a Mom and Dad perspective to the games and products that they create.

In May 2011, Greg, Beth and the team of 3 Creative Design Group joined forces to form Continuum Consulting. Continuum Consulting provides assistance to new and experienced toy, game and novelty product inventors. They help new inventors figure out just how to launch a new game idea or new product concept. The team knows firsthand the challenges that are involved in bringing a product to market as well as the potential rewards associated with a well executed product launch. The goal is to offer a continuum of services to new and experienced inventors to help guide decision making, avoid common pitfalls, and create the best possible pathway to success.

I love to play games.  Everyone in my family does!!  It is a great fun way to have real family bonding time (except when your father cheats!!)

I was given the opportunity to try two new games from Continuum Games.  Family Talk 2, and Lumps.

Questions to get the whole family talking! Family Talk2 takes the dinner table discussions with you wherever you go!

The second edition of our award winning Family Talk game. Engage your family in meaningful conversations with this set of 100 new and exciting questions. Simply pick a card, ask the question and get a surprising and often hilarious glimpse into the hearts and minds of family members. Winner of the Tillywig Brain Child Award.

•Second edition of our popular Family Talk game
•Fun, Portable family game of conversation keeps today’s busy families connected
•100 new and exciting question cards attached to round carabiner clip for use anywhere – at home, at a restaurant, in the car, on vacation
•Questions that get the whole family talking – even hard-to-talk-to Teens!
•Portable, thoughtprovoking, fun!
•Great as a travel game
•Ages 3+
•Great gift idea

This game is a lot of fun to break the ice.  I know from personal experience, that sometimes you are just too tired to talk, and/or you just can't think of anything to say.

With Family Talk 2, you are given a bunch of topics to discuss, like "Are you related to anyone famous?"  

This is a great game to help open up with your kids, and also a great way to remember fun things from your past!!!

Getting coal in your stocking is now the best gift of the holidays!

The Lumps Legend: Children around the world have been so good over the past few years; lumps of coal have built up at the North Pole. Puzzled by what to do with the excess coal; Santa’s elves decided to create an exciting new game that uses lumps of coal of all shapes and sizes. The game is so much fun, good little boys and girls, for the first time ever, are excited to get lumps of coal in their stocking!

Lumps, the Elf Coal Game is the most addictive family dice game you’ll ever play! The goal is to score the most points in three rolls by rolling pairs of the same number. Roll a pair of 3s, score 3 points…a pair of 10s scores 10 points. What makes the game unique is that it has four different types of dice and there are few high numbers. On each turn you have to make decisions on which dice to keep and re-roll. Do you play it safe and hold a pair of 4s, or chance it and try for a high pair? The endless possibilities make Lumps exciting and addictive. Great stocking stuffer!

Ben Jr loves this game.  It is such a simple game, but brings him hours of fun.

With Lumps, you roll dice in a competition between other players to see who can get the highest score.  There are different sizes and shapes of the dice, with different numbers on them.  You get points when you roll two of the same number. 

It's a lot of fun, and so far I have not won once!!!

Lumps, the Elf Coal game is available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores, Books-A-Million, Go! Games and 100s of specialty toy stores in the US besides at Continuum Games site.

These games are a lot of fun, and are perfect stocking stuffer!!!

The good folks at Continuum Games is right now offering all my readers 15% off all purchases at their site by using coupon code funforallages.

They are also generous enough to give one lucky reader both of the above games!!

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ magical classic “Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others—and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.

Featuring unforgettable music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, and an enormously talented vocal ensemble, “Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.


· The film was nominated for six Academy Awards®, winning Oscars® for Best Song, by the renowned Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and Best Original Score (Menken).

· “Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated feature to cross the $100 million plateau in its initial release.
Alan Menken has been nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 15 times with seven wins. Prior to his death in 1991, Howard Ashman received six Oscar® nominations with two wins.
Three years after the film’s debut, “Beauty and the Beast” hit Broadway. The musical opened at the Palace Theatre and ran in New York for 5,464 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming the eighth-longest running production. It has played in 13 countries and 115 cities and continues to enchant audiences worldwide.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ magical classic “Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), the Beast (voice of Robby Benson) and the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock.

Holiday Gift Guide- Radio Flyer Sounds And Lights Scooter Review

When our grandfather Antonio Pasin started Radio Flyer in 1917, his dream was to "bring joy to every boy and every girl". Today, the Radio Flyer family continues that tradition by building safe, quality toys that spark imagination and inspire active play. From the original little red wagon to our current wagons, tricycles, scooters, and other ride-ons, our toys bring smiles to children and families around the world and create warm memories that last a lifetime.

From our family to yours...
Robert and Paul Pasin

Radio Flyer is a name that everyone knows!! 

Most of us had some sort of Radio Flyer toy when we were growing up.  Be it the traditional wagon, or one of the many different trikes.  Every neighborhood had them up and down the lawns, and still do!!!

Radio Flyer is the type of product that our kids use, our grand kids use, and many generations to come will use!!

I was super duper excited to be offered one to give my boys!!! 

We were given the new Lights & Sounds Racer™ Scooter!!

The second the box arrived, both boys were jumping up and down and of course pushing the buttons!!!

Ben had a hard time at first putting it together (because two kids were looking over his shoulder!!)  Other wise it was very easy to assemble.  It took Ben about 20 minutes to do.


Once the Scooter was assembled the boys were off.  They had to take turns, which nearly killed them, but they did it!!

Doesn't it look great!!

Radio Flyers are made from very strong, kid tough plastic.  I swear you need to be the Incredible Hulk to break them!!!

If you have kids on your shopping list this season, a Radio Flyer is the way to go.  With many different styles to choose from, you can't go wrong!!!

Holiday Gift Guide- Grandma Dee's Seasoned Nuts And Snacks Review And ~~Giveaway~~

Using the best quality nuts and hand mixed spice blends we craft seasoned nuts and snacks that are healthy, unique and simply addictive!

Grandma Dee’s gourmet nuts are hand-made in small batch recipes relying on the freshest whole nuts (no bits and pieces!) which we lovingly roast and season with premium spices. Our nuts are naturally free of artificial colors and sweeteners, preservatives, gluten, trans fat and cholesterol.

Whether ordering the chocolate covered cashews, sweetly spiced pecans and walnuts, seasoned nuts, granola or raw nuts and seeds, you will always receive a fresh and delicious batch. Try our Gourmet Gifts too!

Each order is hand packed and promptly shipped to our happy customers. Enjoy!

My family and I are granola lovers.  We love to try all sorts of new types.  Granola with fruit in it is our favorite!!

I was very excited to find out about Grandma Dee's Snacks.  They make their Granola and Nuts with out Artificial Colors, Flavors, Sweeteners, with out Preservatives and Gluten.  Plus they are delicious!!!

I was sent a bag of their Organic Peanut Butter and Banana Granola, and their Nutty Granola.

We tried the Peanut Butter/Banana first and WOW!!!  The flavors work so well together.  I loved the fact that you could taste the peanut butter, and it tasted like real peanut butter.  Not that imitation stuff you get in some cookies, cakes etc. 

The granola had the right amount of nuts, seeds and fruit to really make it pop!!!

The Nutty Granola was delicious too.  It has the great taste of maple to it, and it has sea salt (which is better for you.)  Again, this granola had the right amount of nuts, berries and seeds to it. 

All in all I am very impressed with Grandma Dee's and highly recommend it!!

I am very happy to be able to give one of you the chance to try two 1 lb bags of Grandma Dee's Granola!!! 

Keep one bag for yourself, and you can give the other as a Christmas Gift!!!

I bet Grandma Dee's Granola would make some mighty tasty Holiday Cookies!!!

Monday Meet And Greet- Someday I'll Learn

Someday I'll Learn

Your Name: Chelsea Day

Where do you blog? Tell us a little about you: I'm a marketing consultant and new mom living in San Diego with my husband. I run the family blog Someday I'll Learn, which is all about tackling domestic life…one day at a time!

How did you decide what to name your blog?: When we settled down just out of college, I was pretty clueless about domestic issues and frequently found myself declaring, "Someday I'll learn!" Now, I'm having fun learning new things daily.
What are your favorite things?

■Crème brûlée
■My son's laugh
■Red-eye coffee
■Mod podge
■The color yellow

What are you least favorite things?

■Porcelain dolls
■Freeway overpasses (I always feel like I'll just go careening off!)
■Poor grammar

When and why did you start blogging?: I moved to San Diego in 2009 and didn't know anyone. I spent a lot of time browsing other blogs and felt the urge to create one for our own family. It's been an incredible experience and I've actually made friends with quite a few bloggers in real life as a result.

What do you blog about?: Someday I'll Learn offers personal insights and shortcuts for cooking, cleaning, parenting, organization and more. I aim to simplify life for other busy parents with helpful tips and a healthy dose of reality.

What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it?: My family has been incredibly supportive, and most of them read the blog every day. My husband, Nate, is a contributor. Everyone loves his sense of humor!

When do you find the time to blog?: Good question. Uhhh...I don't sleep a whole lot.

What is your favorite blog post ever?: I Have PTSD ( is the most personal post I've written. It was difficult, but I'm proud of myself for putting it out there and being a voice of encouragement for other people to share their own stories.

What has been your biggest blogging challenge?: Staying authentic and true to my own voice while working with brands to monetize the blog. Someday I'll Learn has transformed from a little family blog into an at-home job, but it's still a space for my own personal reflections. Balancing those interests and keeping my priorities straight takes conscious effort.

What advice would you give a new blogger?: Make friends! I've found so many supportive people in the blogosphere. It can be isolating initially to sit at home and put your ideas out there without a ton of feedback. Join blogging groups and converse with other people.

What widget or feature could you not live without?: LinkWithin ( I love being reminded of past, related posts that I had completely forgotten about!

What are your favorite blogs to read?:

The Mama Mary Show (

Heather Drive (

Mommy Loves Coffee (

Ooph (

Where can we find you?:

Facebook (

Twitter (!/somedayilllearn)

Google+ (

Feed/Email (
