As I started to organize my photos from this summer, I came across one of me and Sissy the last time we visited Toys R Us before it closed its doors. We always made a big birthday trip to the toy superstore every year! With the big kids' birthdays just a few days apart, we… Continue reading Keeping Magic in the midst of Change

The Zits Pop n' Play Pimples come in packs like those pictured above and contain easy peel off stickers that you can put on your body. They have a variety of sizes, so you can have small ones and big ones. They are safe and non-toxic.
