I was chosen to make a difference in a Senior Citizen Life #CBias, I am so excited especially because I take care of a Senior Citizen Couple.

 TCBY is my favorite Frozen Yogurt. I used to go to the TCBY in our town and get the parfait. My husband and I first date or dessert was at TCBY. I was so sad when they closed down. I'm delighted to know that Walmart carries TCBY frozen yogurt. 

I love that we have a healthy alternative to ice cream and that we also get proboitics with every bite. 

We started our party first by going to Walmart to purchase our TCBY frozen yogurt. We purchased four of the TCBY products ( chocolate fudge bars, classic vanilla sandwiches, 1 Vanilla Quart and 1 Cookies and Cream Frozen yogurt) to honor our senior citizen's. 

I have more picture's at My Google Plus Story

Our shopping is completed and here we are checking out. Our Senior Citizen friend has Celiac Disease so she can't eat wheat or gluten so we purchased special cookies for her so that we could make TCBY Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Gluten Free Cookie Sandwich for them. 

Our very own "TCBY Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Gluten Free Cookie Sandwich".

"National Senior Citizen Day"

Our sweet couple.
Every week I go over to there house and prepare meals them. This day I brought them some of our meal which I do often. After they were done with there meal it's time to party with TCBY Frozen Yogurt. I explained the calorie count and that it has 7 probiotics in each serving and what probiotic do for your gut. They were very interested in TCBY Frozen yogurt.

She said it was delicious!!!!!

Our other sweet friend that is enjoying his TCBY Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Gluten Free Cookie Sandwich. 
I left the Vanilla Frozen Yogurt for them to have for dessert for a future date. 
They both enjoy company so it was my honor to be Honoring Seniors with TCBY yogurt.  

I decided to go to our Senior Citizen neighbors and deliver TCBY frozen yogurt. 
She was delighted to have company but also to have a fresh treat of classic vanilla sandwiches.

Our last stop was my Father and Mother in Law house to have them try the Chocolate Fudge Bars. My Mother in Law loved the Chocolate Fudge Bars. I left a box for them at there house to honor them on this National Senior Citizen Day!!!!

Another true success to giving back to our community. I'm so honored to serve our senior citizens, many have sacrificed alot for us. Honor your Senior Citizens everyday, maybe a phone call, a card, a smile. Whatever you do Honor them.

Thank you to MomSelect for letting us have a Mommy Party with the Gutzy Gear. 
Our children were so excited when we received the Gutzy Gear which are for your backpacks. 
We had two parties the first one is with Ducky's best friend. As you can see they were so happy to receive the Gutzy Gear for there backpacks. We home school but we do carry backpacks for when we car school or have doctor's appointment's, etc. 

Gutzy Gear is a clever idea, first each child gets two strap covers, one for each of there straps on there backpacks. They put on there strap covers on there backpacks. 

Gutzy Gear can be used on a Messenger Bag,Scooter,Guitar Strap and Fishing Poll. And I'm sure you could think of many other. That's so cool, Gutzy Gear has many uses. 

Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your backback, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies. But Gutzy Gear is even more… Gutzy Gear is a lifestyle! Gutzy Gear is about showing the world who you are, taking chances and being the best YOU you can be. So wherever you are, whenever it is, whatever the plan…

Gutzy Gear is Fun and a change for there backpacks. 

Each child got patches for there strap covers which are Velcro. They were all different designs( hearts, ice cream cone,popcorn,flower and many more). 

 They can trade them,collect them, and change them. 

Transform there backpack with Gutzy Gear.

DMan and Ducky with there Gutzy Gear and ready for homeschooling!!!

DMan's and Ducky's backpacks. 

This is the start of our second party. Here we are playing the Gutzy Gear Matching Game. Each child took turns turning over the Gutzy Gear pieces to try and find the match. When they found a match they had to say Gutzy Gear!!!!

Here what the matching pieces looked like. 

We then played Gutzy Gear Bingo, I would call out the picture on my card and they would have to fill up there row and say "Gutzy Gear" when they got a Bingo. They seemed to really enjoy playing these games. 

Then the children got there Gutzy Gear and they loved them so much and enjoyed putting the patches on there backpacks. 

Here is another child putting on her Gutzy Gear. 

Gutzy Gear are for all ages and all genders. There is something for everyone. 

So cute and fun to put on the Gutzy Gear on there backpacks. 

I'm honored that MomSelect would select us to do the Gutzy Gear Mommy Parties. I'm feel so blessed to give,serve and love others through Gutzy Gear!!!!

History Late 1800's to Early 1900's

We took a tour at our local Late 1800's and Early 1900's Village. Our children thought that the school room was so cool. They have never been in a school before. They really did live a very different live then we do today. It makes me want to live in those days for the simplicity. 

D Man in the school room, so excited!!!

This desk was the only desk that survived a Hurricane in a storm.

D Man and his friends sitting in the pew that the old church. 

This is an item you won't see often these days,maybe in some churches.  An organ.

"The Marriage Creed"

Could you imagine getting up in the morning and having to pump all of your water for showers,dishes,etc. I'm thankful for our water:)

Ducky pumping the water for the day:)

The Church, the only thing is they didn't have a steeple on the top of the church. 

There were many other things we saw that day that were amazing. We had a great time going back into time!!!
