Ultimate Blog Party! 5 Minutes for Mom's style

Hello! New to my site? My name is Jennifer McCullar and I've been blogging since 2008. In March, I began hosting reviews and giveaways on Life Is A SandCastle. I love to meet friends, stay in touch with old friends blogging, and finding the latest family friendly products. I'm married and a proud mom to 2 little boys 3 years and 9 months. We love to fish, campout, and just hanging out together. My ultimate blogging goal is to try to help others even with just a comment. Who knows how far a kind word can go. While your here enter my giveaways located on the left side bar. Thanks for coming by and I can't wait to get to know everyone!

The story about the granddaddy is very familiar to me--I have had several experiences with children saying that same type of thing. I guess I'd like to think that there are some angels around that are there for the children's eyes only:) Leave it at that!
