Skipper in the Garage

This is Skipper.

Skipper is lucky that she is in the garage because she is usually is not allowed to stay in the garage. Sometimes she is allowed to go in when we are in the garage, when it is raining sometime we let her in,or if it is cold snowy or icey we let her in to. Most of the time she likes it better outside. We love her so much.

Animal of the week: Antelope

Antelope are herbivores, which means they eat only plants.  Although there is 1 odd exception: some duiker species have been known to kill and eat insects, small mammals, and birds. The majority of antelope tend to be content to munch on bushes and smaller trees or graze on grass.

All antelope have horns; in some species they are only found on the males, whereas in others, such as gazelles, both males and females have them. The horns are made of a bony core encased in a hard material made largely of keratin (the same substance our fingernails are made of!).

Antelopes are in the family Bovidae.  A group of antelope is called a herd. Both the male and female antelope have horns, but those of males tend to be larger.

Mike, Ashley, and Bradley gave my sister and I Insta-Snow Powder for our birthday!  It is AMAZING! My Mom, sister, and I played with it for hours. It was cool to play with snow inside. It was easy to make, you just add water.

Kinder Joy: Candy & Toy Filled Eggs from India

Karlie and I enjoyed these delicious Kinder Joy candy and toy filled eggs for the first time when my Dad went to India!  I never knew they made them until he brought them home to share with us.  Recently one of his co-workers brought each of us a Kinder Joy egg back from India for us.  We LOVED it!

The Kinder Joy is an orange and white egg shape (a lot like the eggs you hunt for around Easter).  Half of the egg contains a yummy white and milk chocolate candy with a crunchy goodness that you eat with a little spoon that comes inside the egg.  The other half of the egg contains an neat little too.  It is a fun treat that you get both a tasty snack AND a toy in one cute egg.

Thank you Daddy for introducing us to these goodies.  Also, a big thank you to his co-worker for being thoughtful and bringing us back these sweet, fun treats to enjoy!

Reviews: Chronicles of Narnia – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis

My sister, friends, and I love reading and listening to The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis a lot.  Several years ago my parents got us the this bookIt has been a big hit with all of the kids that have read it! We have taken this book all most everywhere. It’s great to read or listen to if you are waiting in an airport or going on a road trip.

When have a chance to read more it is one I would pick.   The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe  by C.S. Lewis is one of the best books.   Kids enjoy it yet many adults love reading the book too.  All my friends want to read this and when they read it they love it too.  If you are looking for a great book this summer check out this one!

The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe Positives:

  • Great for Kids, Parents (the whole family)
  • Entertaining to read or listen to in audiobook form
  • A good mix of excitement

The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe Negatives:

  • We both want to read the same book (sometimes at the same time)
  • Have to share or wait until they are done

FunWithSis Rating for the The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe:           :) :) :) :) :)

I give The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe our top rating of 5 smiles because it has been a fun book.  We have read and listened to it multiple times over the past few years.  It is something we will probably still enjoy reading once we are older too.  It is entertaining and fun!

The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe  has been a lot of fun for me, my sister, and for our friends that visit our house.  We keep our The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe  inside most of the time, but some times we take it other places.  If you are looking for a great gift for a kid on your list the The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe is one I highly recommend (If they like to read or listen to books)!
