Captain Mac A. Roni "The Greatest Treasure" Review by Bella & Gabby

I was sent a free copy of the DVD "Captain Mac A. Roni - The Greatest Treasure" to review.

First off, I have to say that it is not like a Disney or Pixar movie in that it does not pull an adult's interest in, but it was created with kids in mind and attempts to teach kids about the value of love and sharing. It's a cute and simple cartoon video, and as it is aimed at children, I decided that it would only be appropriate to let my kids review it themselves.

With that in mind, I have this video to share with you. My 7 year old daughter Gabby and 4 year old daughter Bella watched the video this morning. They both enjoyed the video, but Bella had a case of shyness when I videoed her to ask what she thought of it.

Take a look at the video and listen to what they thought of it and decide for yourself whether or not it would be a good Christmas gift for your own kids. You can buy the Captain Mac.A.Roni Children's DVD here.

Cameron has been letting go and standing on his own today. Gabby mentioned yesterday that she saw him do it too.

It happens too sporadically for me to get a photo of it yet, but as soon as I'm able to, I'll share a picture of him standing on his own.

Being my youngest, I am in no rush for him to reach all these new stages of development. I am perfectly happy for him to take his time, but he seems to have other ideas.

Why yes, it is the dog's costume. Why do you ask?

Connor & His Pumpkin

Connor has become attached to a plastic jack-o-lantern that we had amongst our Halloween decorations. From the moment we got the decorations out (the day before Halloween), he has carried that jack-o-lantern around with him everywhere. He calls it, "my punkin."

Today, Robert caught Connor chatting with his jack-o-lantern. Then Connor put a blanket over the jack-o-lantern and pulled it off again saying, "Peek-a-boo!"

He adores it, and I have no idea how he's going to take it when we pack it away with the other Halloween decorations.
