Best Toys, Gadgets, & Gift For That Baby in Your Life

Since it will be baby's first Christmas, we thought it would be fun to show you our favorite and must-have baby toys, baby gadgets, and ideas for gifts for anyone who's pregnant or has a baby!

So here's a new video from my "baby channel" on Youtube...with me and baby!

These are our tried and tested baby favorites that you may love too. And all the toys are under $20 too!


Here's the video, but I'll also put the links below here for each thing too and a little extra comment of why we like it.


*in case anyone wants to know where I got these, at :www.walmart.com
The reason I'm making sure you know I got it online is- we went to the Walmart store after we got the little laptop to get one for my neice, and found out that it's not at all the stores, but it is online. Don't want you to have an upset lil' niece like I did! ha ha ha

OUR BEST & FAVORITE BABY TOYS:
(and their under $20 yay!)

1. Baby Einstein Caterpillar Fun Bundle (rattle, teether, ball, and baby "ipod")-
this is a super deal for 4 toys, and the little ipod that plays classic music is our favorite


2. V-tech Pink Baby Learning Laptop
she loves my laptop, so this is great- she can bang on all the keys on hers and it won't break!
(They have this same one at Toys R Us for like $20, but it's at Walmart for $13!)


3. Bright Starts- Drop & Giggle Giraffe
My 4 and  6 year old, Blake and Alani, love this toy too! ha ha ha


4. V-tech Touch & Learn Musical Bee
*THIS IS MY FAVORITE!!!! She really like riding in the car (which is weird, all my other kids loved the car), but every she has this in the car with her, we put it on the "night time" mode, and she falls right asleep. And on daytime mode, this makes diaper change time so much easier, she holds the bee and I can change her diaper without her trying to crawl away. I think I'm going to buy another one, just in case something happens to this one! ha ha ha


5. Vtech Move & Crawl Electronic Activity Ball
This is so fun. It really wobbles all around.


ONE OF MY FAVORITE BABY MUST-HAVES IS:
THE BUMBO SEAT
-every one of my friends, and me- love these!
I had a lavender one for Alani, gave it away. A blue one for Blakey, and now we got a new Turquoise one for Elyse. Bumbo calls it Aqua, I love turquoise, so you say tomato, I say turquoise! ha ha ha
This is a must have for every mama!

BABY MONITOR MUST HAVE:
SUMMER INFANT- BabyTouch Digital Color Video Monitor
I bought this when I was pregnant, and I bought the old "sound only" monitor, because I didn't know if it was worth the extra money. I returned that sound only one, as soon as I used this. It's AMAZING! Not only can you see if they are moving around, have kicked a blanket off, or you can see if they wake up and are not making noise, but are sitting up or moving around.
I LOVE THIS MONITOR! And have told all my friends that this is a MUST have for your baby registries or a baby essential- it's worth every penny. No interference. No hearing you neighbors phone calls because the old monitors pick it up. So many times with the old monitor, when Alani and Blake were babies, they would be asleep- the monitor would start screeching from interference or you'd hear someone's phone call get picked up on the monitor and WAKE THEM UP! This has NEVER happened once with monitor in all the 10 months she's been alive and we've used it!

And I love how she stared at the camera and just smiles in this video! ha ha ha She just melts my heart!
Hope she makes you smile too! Let me know if you like seeing these kind of video too!
Big hugs from me and little hugs from baby, kandee

Surf's Up in the Bathroom Dude

 Blaker catching some gnarly waves in the bathroom sink...he even brought his little chair...er, I mean "surf board" into the bathroom. He washed his hands and made an ocean in the sink.
And this is surfer dude.
AKA The Huck Doll- he has velcro on the bottom of his feet, that "velcro" to the velcro on his surfboard.

 Who said bathrooms aren't fun....we have Surfin Safari's goin' on in ours!

Alani had her turn playing in the sink too, but instead of a Surf Session, hers was more like a Princess Swimming Party...everyone from Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty went for a "sink swim"...

We have the cleanest little plastic doll people and surfer dudes around....
some people want beach front property...I've got a "seaside sink"...ha ha ha ha
i love my lil surfer dude and dudette.
sinks up dude!   your kandee

Saturdays at my house....

 We make smoothies for breakfast....
then I baked mac n' cheese with bread crumbs for lunch...with clementine oranges (they look like baby oranges, so they kids love them)...
the kids are so precious...Alani found the mask I used in the Flo costume video and she out with it on, and Blaker found my "hill billy" hat- that has long hair attached to it. They both made me laugh so hard...
I'm not quite sure who or how this picture got taken of the baby and was on my phone...
I do know, that I don't understand why boys are so messy when it comes to peeing in the toilet. I know that I don't really like cleaning up pee. And I cleaned some "escape pee", that a little man left for me.

I did not leave the house today.  But I did make some videos...
I am very tired it's 2:12 am....
Good Nighty Night night or good morning morn morn....
huge hugs, love and a bathroom that now smells like Mrs. Meyers Basil Scented Bathroom Cleaner...
your sleepy friend Kandee

PS. I am praying for all of you that might need some extra prayer for a hard week. I love ya!

Look Who's 10 months old!

Officially she passed the 10 month mark 3 days ago...and it now an official 10 month old!
She has been bringing smiles and joy for 10 months now, and it feels like she was just a little tiny baby wrapped like a burrito and I would just hold her all day!

See she had her flower on her headband for about .2 seconds...then shortly after the top picture, she removed that too! ha ha ha

PS Her outfit is another cutie we got from Gwen Stefani's Mini Harjuku line at Target! We LOVE, love, lOve...the whole line!

We busted out our Christmas decorations last night....so today I'm gonna try to decorate with the kids, and try to film some fun "holiday" videos at nap time- I hope! ha ha ha
hot chocolate and twinkly lights, your kandee

Outfits of the Day & Cray Cray

This is how we dress for Thanksgiving....
*Read this as if you are a correspondent/host on E!...
Alani is all decked out in her Christmas dress from Gwen Stefani's Mini Harajuku line at Target. (yeah, I know it's not Christmas, but why just wear a dress on Christmas when it's so cute!)..She also has on her plaid Mini Harajuku jacket. Black legging from Target...and her fav, Flex Elizabeth PediPed patent leather and suede boots with the satin bow laces,

 Blaker, who holds still for about .001 seconds, is wearing his new Mini Harajuku shirt (I told you we went crazy when we saw this line!), Denizen jeans (they are the "cool guy jeans" line for boys at Target), studded belt we bought at the Melrose Trading Post, "tent of $5 belts and sunglasses", and the turquoise VANS he picked out.
 Blakey took these blurry "outfit" of the day of baby...the other ones are so blurry you can't tell what she is. ha ha ha
 As you can't tell in the picture, she is wearing a pink and white striped romper suit, with a hood from Old Navy, other other favorite place for little clothes. And the holiday mary jane socks, from Trumpette's line at Target.
 This is what Jordan and my grampa wore....ha ha ha ha. Look how tall Jordan is...I think he grows by the minute. I think he just measured at 6 feet tall and growing.

My favorite....we spent Thanksgiving at my gramma's. No matter how old you are, you feel like a little kid at gramma's. All the troubles of the world melt away, and I just felt safe, cozy, and like the world is ok. And we had 3 different pies and desserts!

Then we went to the movies, I wanted to see the Muppets, but the kids wanted to see Arthur Christmas. So we saw Arthur Christmas, which was really cute, and pretty funny- the brother with the Christmas Tree goatee and the crazy grampa Santa was my favorite.
*THEN...as we drove home, I wondered if people would be camping out for the crazy Black Friday sales that go on here in the US, where things are like 99% off! ha ha ha
There were hundred of people camping outside of Best Buy...you'd think they were giving out $500 in cash with every $200 tv! ha ha

And as I posted on facebook...it doesn't pay to save $200, but have a $400 bill from your broken arm you got fighting people off at the sales. Did you hear of that lady that was spraying other shoppers with pepper spray at Wal-Mart, so they wouldn't beat her to the sales stuff!? CRAY CRAY!!!

They should call it GREEN friday...because all the green they make! ha ha ha

friday-ly yours, kandee

Thanksgiving pasts....

Happy Thanksgiving!
 (this was my sister, Tiffany and year at Thanksgiving- the funny thing is, I was pregnant last Thanksgiving and she is pregnant this Thanksgiving! ha ha...she made me a shirt last year that said "FAT TURKEY"...ha ha ha...)

I am so thankful for so many things like my family...because I know what it's like to not have the ones you love with you.
I am thankful for food...because I know what it's like to not have any.
I am thankful for a home...because I know what it's like to not have one.
I am thankful for a car...because I remember when I didn't have one, and I would've been excited as if you had given me a Merecedez,  if you gave me an old Pinto with 4 different wheel and it was painted pea green and hot pink polka dots- I would've been sooooo excited!

I am so thankful for God's blessing in my life, I am excited I get to be a part of your day and hopefully bring some happiness to your day.
I am thankful for my parents... and I am thankful for babies. The greatest blessings in my life are: Jordan, Alani, Blake and Elyse...

I am thankful for God giving me hope even when I don't think it's possible....

WORST THANKSGIVING: I remember, when I first got married when I was young and had moved far away, my husband and his friend both bought plane tickets to fly home, but didn't buy me one. I spent Thanksgiving with no food, except a jar of peanut butter, all alone, just sad and crying. So I am extra thankful for every Thanksgiving that's not like that one! ha ha ha ha 
*
BEST THANKSGIVING: When to my sister's, hubby's family's home in San Diego. Their home has a beautiful view of the ocean. The table was beautifully set. I love their light, over the table- I love all Danish furniture and lighting. The food was delicious and we opened little party poppers placed at the table with little jokes, trinkets, and paper crowns inside!
 

Huge hugs and I wanted to share a special message of hope and My Story...when I didn't have food and many other things were going wrong... It was hard to talk about some things and I can't get into too many details but I wanted to share that my past has had some pain, but I hope it encourages and inspires someone that may be going through some hard times too...and why I was ALWAYS be so thankful...

How to dress the whole family in Turkey Costumes

This is the cutest lil' turkey I've ever seen!
I could just "gobble gobble" him up!


1. THE TURKEY BABY
You can get a little turkey baby suit like this from: Lil Characters

So, another Thanksgiving is about to roll around...and you wan to add some extra pizazz to make this turkey day a little more memorable-
well nothing says UNFORGETTABLE like dressing in costumes to make things FESTIVE!!!


2. THE TURKEY KID
You can outfit your lil' gobbler in this suit from:  www.totallycostumes.com


3. THE TURKEY DAD (or mom)
Because everyone should wear a turkey suit to the dinner table.
Get your turkey legs into one of these suits and I GUARANTEE that no one will forget this Thanksgiving EVER!
You can order this gobble-gobble good costume HERE.


4. The Turkey Dog
I'm not sure about this turkey dog suit. It look like a "banana-corn"- a mix between a unicorn and a banana...what turkey has a banana growing between it's eyes! ha ha ha
The tail feathers look nice though.
If you want your dog to look like a "banana-corn-key"...
you can get one of these by Puppe Love

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
And stay tuned for our famous Thanksgiving song!

Super Feel Good, Look Good Smoothie

I blend up this smoothie almost every morning...
It's so jam-packed with nutrients...you'll look slimmer, feel better, and your skin is going to look great too!
It's got kale, which is one of the most nutritionally dense foods with, beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium.

When I drink this baby, I am not craving sweet, I feel full (normally my appetite it a little ridiculous)..and the benefits...
it's makes my skin look great, it's let me shed some pounds instead of eating a cinammon roll! ha ha

I try to drink at least one smoothie a day here's just one of my favorite recipes:

SUPER FEEL GOOD, LOOK GOOD SMOOTHIE:
8-10 ounces Coconut Milk (So Delicious Organic Coconut Milk)
1/2 or whole banana
2 giant leaves of kale (or basically a handful rinsed and torn in half)
about a 1/4 cup of blueberries
2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds (Spectrum Organic Ground Flax Seeds)

*flax seeds are an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, and a great non-fish alternative
Flax seeds have tons of fiber, reduce inflammation in the body, lower cholesterol, can help reduce cancer, help with everything from migraines to hot flashes, click here to learn more in fancy talk.

Put it all in a blender, my personal fav is my VitaMix blender, it is one of the best investments I've ever made...I use it sometimes 4 times a day, smoothies, sauces, more smoothies, desserts...you can even make soup in it, and it comes out hot!

Start it on variable 1, then move it up to the highest and I blend for about 45 seconds. Or if you have a regular blender, just blend til it's smooth....
and enjoy!

Watch, you'll eat less junk food, your energy is going to be amazing, your going to look better, feel better, and probably drop some unwanted fat, that those donuts and fried food have donated to you! ha ha ha

cheers to smoothies and feeling good, your kandee

We heart Harajuku (and Gwen Stefani & Target)

(Blakey's Harajuki slip-ons)
We went to Target the other day and I had no idea that Gwen Stefani was collabing with Target to do a kids and babies collection of the cutest clothes!
 (Baby, riding cozy in her Buggy Bag at Target...it turns any shopping cart into a cozy lazy-boy like chair! ha ha As you can see, the kids always make a first stop at the dollar section at Target...they might as well just place the toys as soon as you walk in- it stops us everytime!)
*I love Gwen Stefani- I've loved her style since I was in high school.
*I love Target- and the fact that the do cool, lines like this with other stylish peeps or brands. I never even saw the Missoni collection, except for a few weird clearance things like a scratchy baby sweater dress and some rainboots on clearance.
*I wish all this was in bigger sizes than just baby and kids!

Take a peek and the Mini Harajuku stuff- and I read how it was a mix of all the styles that Gwen has loved and rocked over her whole career...and not to sound like a broken record, but I loved everything!
 Look at these little Harajuku Mini Slip-ons!
 These onesie said it needed a home, and we took it with, us wore it yesterday, and got compliments everywhere we went! Can you see the little knee high socks in the background? So cutey.
 The little plaid, punk pants were so cute I bought a pair for Alani, Blake AND the baby! They can look like very different sized triplettes!
 Blakey in his Harajuku shoes, H & M pants (they have the cheapest kids clothes- like $3.95 for a shirt!) and a new sweater we got at Target...it's just there Target brand.
When I picked Alani up from school, she told me again, how much she loved her new outfit. I got her the plaid punk pants, with the little pleated flap on the back (my favorite part, I wish they made these in my size. Her striped shirt with the bows and tuxedo ruffles on the front, and the mini motorcycle jacket is so cute. Style of Gwen Stefani, prices of Target....awesome combo!

You can dress like a rockstar on a non-rockstar bank account!

Mini clothes and shopping carts... your kandee

PS. I have no idea how long this line will be at Target...all I can say is there's NO DOUBT, you better WIND IT UP and make a SWEET ESCAPE to Target before all that's left is SPIDERWEBS....ha ha ha

Recipe for a Wild Friday Night

Yes...We were some girls gone wild tonight....
Get out your cookbook note cards because we're about to cook up a wild Friday night.
One thing that is essential before reading any further...note that my sister is visiting...which means I am excited, because just like in our childhood years, she is sleeping in the room next to mine...hooray.

Here is the recipe to cook up a wild friday night
(in no particular order, actually none of these are in order, at all) 
And no one checked anyone's id at the door

What you need:
1. 2 Sisters 
(with real babies of their own, not plastic babies like when we first were next door neighbors and much shorter and less digits in our ages)

2. A good round of baby baths
(complete with getting peed on right before inserting a bathee into their bathtub)

3. The horrible FLASH-powered self-portrait I thought would be fun to jazz things up a bit and show you how glamorous I am on Friday nights...yeah that's right, I gave my make-up the night off. See the above pictures to review said photograph. That's what I call "phancy photography".

4. Blue Berry Cobbler
One wonderful mother who baked us a blue berry cobbler, set the timer and bid us farewell. We both really wished we had some ice cream to make it a la mode.
****awww man ,I already messed up the order, she said good bye then we started the baths....I'm too exhausted to go re-type it.

5. Me singing this song in my "manliest" voice...."The Surrey With The Fringe On Top"
(because it's funny, and we were just joke singing it yesterday- then we went to an antique store, my sister buys this old kids book...we open it up when we get home, and guess what song is inside on the first page?" Surrey Song!)

6. Pajama Party Time
We all had our jammies on at around 8:30pm....I know....wild party animals.

7. Say Good Night To the Party Man
We all marched up to say goodnight to Jordan, who did not appreciate my "Surrey Song", I sang for him, and promptly asked us to leave his room saying we were embarrassing to his friends that would hear us on his headset in the background.

8. Seconds and Thirds
Yes, I had not only seconds, but third helpings of the blueberry cobbler....I couldn't help myself, it's Friday!

9. Disturbing the Peace
I had to ask Jordan who was up until moments ago, laughing very loudly and talking really loudly...a little too much to my "you're going to wake up the baby"-level loud....he promptly replied with, "I'm being too loud, huh?"....

10. Diapers are Fun
As my niece, who is 2, came with me to "help" change the baby's diaper (she handed me a wipe)...said..."she has a lotta poop! That is uh-sgusting!"

It's almost midnight and I've had my jammies on for hours....
Wild and Crazy Friday night...... diapers, baths, fesh baked dessert, laughing with my sister, and putting out pajams on really early.... your kandee

Great Advice from the Grandpa that's not mine...

the secret to not aging is that is that there is no secret....
I was searching for a video I did...and saw the little thumbnail for the , "THE BABY IS HERE" video...
and as I watch it and even as I type this...tears want to sprout from my heart and water the keyboard I'm typing on....
she was so tiny. so new. you can almost feel her heart taking in this new world around her. i just want to reach through the computer and hold her.
9 months later...she has grown and changed so, so, so much.....
A little grampa was sitting next to us at lunch, and was telling us stories of his grandkids, and telling us to enjoy each moment, because they aren't little very long, and he warned us: "it goes by too fast"....
IT GOES BY TOO FAST.
tears are seriously making it a bit hard to see what I'm typing right now....
each moment has gone by too fast...
who cares if your house is perfectly clean-
if your to-do list got done-
if your kids made a mess or broke something or lost something-
or if you had enough time after dinner to make sure every last dish was put away...

at then end of your life, when you see the value of every second you let slip away...
like the cute little Grampa we saw- you could feel it in his words and his face....
his urgency to ENJOY every second...because it's gone and you're older, babies turned to toddlers, kids and teenagers before you thought there was enough time to hold them in your arms.
like my little Jordan here....who know stands 6 feet tall...I miss that little face...I miss the moments when all he wanted was for me to be in his room....and now he asks me to leave his room, even when I just walk in to tell him dinner is ready. ha ha ha ha

Enjoy every moment, no matter how tiring it might be...it will be gone before we  know it...and we will be old, telling someone young with a baby...to enjoy every moment because "it goes by before you know it".....

I just want to jump back in time in this video...

and remember, no matter how frustrating today might seem...please enjoy every second, frustrating or not...it will be gone before you know it...and if you didn't enjoy it, good, bad, messy house, or not...
that fact that your alive is something awfully special...
huge hugs and enjoying every moment today... your kandee

Big Apple Baby

From the moment I first went to New York City....I knew no other city in the world would come close to matching that special something that NYC has....
it's something indescribable..something you have to feel...
Cities are unique like people, they have a feel, a look, a "personality" all their own....and NYC has a "fingerprint"  unlike any other.

I loved carrying baby around NYC....so many things to see, faces to look at....and Times Square was quite mesmerizing to her...well, and to tons of tourists there too! ha ha

I wish I could spend the day walking in NYC with my babies....instead I'm far too far to the left coast. Far more too far away...but when I saw this picture, for a moment I caught a glimpse in my heart of the excitement, creativity, and business of NYC...that was not just exciting to me, to little eyes taking the excitement in too...
typing from a location in the boonies with little onesies that say "I heart NYC"....your kandee

Are you ready to smell like the holidays?

 As you know....I have long been scent-obsessed with every single product from Mrs. Meyer's...
they are all natural and I love everything about them!
my regular favorite scent is the Basil- I have it in everything from room fresheners to countertop cleaner to handsoap!

BUT NOW......they are dazzle noses everywhere with their limited edition HOLIDAY Scents......

are you ready these are my favorites...and now it will be a race to see who orders up the rest of holiday supply! ha ha ha

These are what I'm buying so you'll know exactly what my house will smell like (ha ha ha):
MY TOP HOLIDAY SCENT PICKS:
#1. every single GINGERBREAD scented product they make....will be mine! ha ha ha

#2. Spice Cake (this and Gingerbread are my fav-ey favs!) It smells like  a sweet, yummy, vanilla hinted spice!
#3.  Orange Clove smells so spicy and delicious, it makes cleaning your counter like a treat for you senses.

#4. Cranberry smells holiday fruity.

#5.  Iowa Pine is the last holiday option, but I'm not really a fan of pine scent...ha ha ha But I think it's already sold out for the season anyway.

Happy holiday scents...here's to houses, countertops, and freshly washed hands that all smell like a yummy escape from a snowy wonderland, with fresh baked treats and homemade whipped cream waiting in bowls....oh yummm!... from a cake-scented home, kandee

A note to the real Mrs. Meyer, a homemaker and mother of 9. 
Dear Mrs. Meyer, 
I am in love with everything you make, keep up the great scents. My home smells delicious thanks to your company and it's naturally, sparkling clean thanks to your awesome company! Thanks for being a mom of 9, and for saying that a mom's goal is not to have a perfect house- but one that looks like it's lived in- complete with toy messes and laundry piles!
love and a yummy smelling house, with clean laundry piles, kandee

Yes, we love 10 foot tall shoes and 2 story cakes!

Giant things ahoy!
Not only did we find an ant as big as me, a super huge hot pink boot, but many other fun things like camels and pink elephants when we  headed to the golf course...
the MINIATURE GOLF COURSE THAT is....
this is my dad...and me with some unruly bangs and a sleeping baby...
the pro golfers in the background are:  my mom, Blakey and Alani
my parents are divorced, but I love that they can still do things together with us and we can have fun!
 Now this is what I'm talking about......a 2 story cake!
Alani checking out just exactly what this cake-trick-door does when you hit the ball through it....
needless to say I didn't hit my ball through the "trick door"- mine just bing-bonged around racking me up a nice high score....FYI: in golf, the high score loses- the lower the score wins...ha ha ha
Me, baby, and our Sleepy Wrap...she was just hiding her face...she was not sleeping in her sleepy wrap! My shots kinda went down hill when she fell alseep and I was just hitting the ball without really seeing, and with one hand. ha ha ha

Yeah...hot pink boot!
Blakey checking out the liner of the boot.
 Blakey scoping out the shot and the tricky Camel hole...Blakey hit it in the hole in 2 tries!

My mom and Elyse, before we hit the course, much more awake then when we finished!

Alani even won a free game of golf when we returned our golf balls! And Grampa (my dad), got the kids handfuls of quarters to play arcade games...me and Blakey like the boat racing game and Jordan sent a few air hockey sticks flying! ha ha ha

We're ready to go on the pro mini golfing tour....ha ha ha
only if I can take my pink golf ball and rubber club...ha ha ha
giant pink elephants and colored golf balls... your kandee
