Christmas just isn't Christmas without the classic TV specials, movies, and animated programs that we've come to know and love. Do you watch NBC's Community? Community gets into the holiday spirit with their Christmas episode this Thursday, Dec. 9. In this special stop-motion animation episode, the meaning of Christmas is lost and Abed's intense fixation on Christmas concerns the group. When Abed (Danny Pudi) wakes up in stop-motion animation, he takes it as a sign that he and the group must re-discover the meaning of Christmas. Meanwhile, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) become growingly concerned about Abed's mental health and enlist the help of Professor Duncan (John Oliver). The group undergoes hypnosis to explore Abed's winter wonderland and soon unravel the truth behind Abed's madness. Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, and Ken Jeong also star.

Hellmann's® virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share

Happy Autumn!
It's back-to-school time, and for most moms that means back to car-pooling, homework monitoring and of course, packing lunches. It can be hard to come up with lunches made with real, simple ingredients that kids will eat and actually enjoy. Luckily, Hellmanns® and Best Foods® Mayonnaise are putting the fun back into lunch this September with their virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share program. I can remember my mom singing a song at the beginning of the school year, and it was named - School Days!
School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Reading and writing and arithmetic
Taught to the tune of a hickory stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful, barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate, "I Love You So"
When we were a couple o' kids.

World's Largest Wagon Mosaic - Radio Flyer

The Radio Flyer Classic Wagon is a favorite of children and adults alike. Do you remember that Classic Red Radio Flyer Wagon? I sure do. It was one of my favorite toys. I spent countless hours pulling that wagon around. My dolls, cats, and friends got to ride in it. I would cushion the ride with doll blankets and pillows. I think owning a Classic Red Radio Flyer Wagon is a tradition within my family because we all had one, and some of us older folks still  have them sitting around. My old wagon gets loaded with pumpkins during fall for a whimsical display. I thinks it's a #18. The kids and grand-kids all have them.

Radio Flyer has launched the World's Largest Wagon Mosaic. Go ahead and post your family photo's featuring a Radio Flyer Wagon. Simply capture your families' Radio Flyer moments on camera and go to Radio Flyer Art to add your photo and help the legacy of the little red wagon live on.

Have fun, and enjoy your Radio Flyer. You can follow @RadioFlyerSmile on Twitter and visit Radio Flyer on Facebook.

 This post was part of a campaign for Radio Flyer , through  Mom Select. I was entered into a drawing for a wagon as a thank you for posting. No other form of compensation was received. All opinions and statements are my own.

Uncle Ben's Kitchen Kickoff Party

Uncle Ben's Kitchen Cookoff Party

I was selected to host an Uncle Ben's Kitchen Cookoff Party for friends and family. Mom Central sent me party supplies, and host gifts on behalf of Uncle Ben's to get my party cooking!

I was sent Uncle Ben's Brown Rice varieties of: Uncle Ben's Boil-In-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice, Uncle Ben's Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice, and Uncle Ben's Fast and Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice.

Rice is the perfect foundation for today's healthier eating! Rice is economical, and easy to prepare. Rice goes well with other healthy foods such as vegetables, meat, and fish for a delicious and nutritious meal. Just one serving of nearly all Uncle Ben's Whole Grain Rice varieties provide 100 percent of the daily whole grain recommendation.
