Names Of Jesus Advent Chain!

Saving Dollarsand Sense


I shared this the last couple years because I love it and look forward to making one each year.

I hope you will forgive me for being a bit late posting it this year, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to do even if it is a few days into December already.

I’m SO excited to share what I found the other day with you today!

When my kids were young one thing that we always did to count down the days until Christmas was make a Christmas countdown chain out of construction paper.  Each morning the would rush to remove one more chain link and watch as the days until Christmas got closer and closer.

I would have LOVED to know about this The Names of Jesus Advent Chain back then!

Although my kids are older now I still think I will do this today to remind me of what we are really counting down to!

Pie Face Game Deals

Saving Dollarsand Sense

39602764I have begun to see several videos on Facebook recently that show just how fun the new Pie Face Game is to play.

The Pie Face Game from Hasbro is a game of chance and mounting suspense.

The big question on everyone’s mind is “who’s going to get splattered?” Take a chance, turn the handles and hope you aren’t the unlucky player to get a pie in the face.

Each player will score a point for every safe turn of the handle, and the one who scores 25 points first is the winner.

This game so easy to play that even children as young as the age of 5 can enjoy it.

Simply fill the hand with whipped cream from home for a more realistic pie-in-the-face experience, or wet the included sponge with water for a cleaner choice.

As soon as I saw the first video, I knew this was going to be a hot toy for the holidays!
