WeeHands Online Sign Language Class Giveaway

Have you ever thought about communicating with your baby before they could talk? Sure, we can talk to babies, but they can't talk back to us, they can't communicate, or can they? I have read about and seen the benefits of signing with young children before they can communicate verbally. In fact, I have seen first hand my child communicating with me before she could talk. But I always wanted to expand my knowledge, but didn't have a way to do so. Then I was introduced to the WeeHands Online Sign Language Class. I am so excited to be learning more and teaching all the children. In fact, the older girls are looking forward to teaching their younger siblings!
I am thrilled I have the opportunity to share this great giveaway with you!

7 Day Free Trial of Krill Oil

Hey MMR Fans..KrillOil.com is giving away 7 day free trials of their krill oil pills. Just go to Krilloil.com and scroll to the banner at the bottom to get your trial. There are only 500 bottles being given away so make sure you act fast. Here are some tid bits about krill oil vs fish oil:

What do you get when you choose our Krill Oil over regular ordinary Fish Oil?

No Unpleasant Aftertastes or Annoying Fish Burps
Many people who've taken fish oil supplements complain of a fishy aftertaste (a.k.a fish breath), gas or fish burp, upset stomach and diarrhea. Thanks to Everest Nutrition Krill Oil you don't have to worry about any of these embarrassing side effects. The same can't be said for even the "top-of-the line" fish oil supplement.
Better Absorption
Our krill oil is arguably the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids. It contains a rich supply of EPA and DHA –even more abundant than fish oil! To add, the Omega 3s in fish oil are found in triglyceride form whereas in krill oil the Omega 3s are linked in phospholipid form which is the same structure as the fat cells in the human body. This makes absorption faster and easier since there are no conversions to be made unlike fish oil.
A More Powerful Antioxidant…54x More Powerful Than Fish Oil! Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is a good source of vitamins E, A and D along with astaxanthin, a highly effective anti-oxidant which protects the body from free radicals and cell damage. Even better, astaxanthin has a unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and combat toxins that lead to cognitive decline! Independent labs confirm our krill oil contains 54x more antioxidant power than fish oil.
Absolute Purity
Our krill is harvested in its natural environment – Antarctica – arguably the cleanest and clearest waters in the world! Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is virtually free of pesticides, mercury, chemicals and other toxins that you'll often find with fish oil.
Better Results 
Numerous tests and studies from around the world report that krill oil surpasses fish oil when it comes to effectiveness. Krill oil produces superior results over fish oil in improving PMS symptoms, maintaining cardiovascular health, relieving inflammation and improving cognitive function along with a slew of other benefits.

Good Morning MMR Fans!

Good morning, I wanted to take the time to thank you all so very much for supporting my blog and entering the giveaways. Without the fans, I would have nothing. I also wanted to let you know the next couple days I may be a little less active. We had a death in the family yesterday and it hasn't quite set in for our 3yr old yet. The wake is Wednesday evening so I am sure that is the night we are going to have lots of questions and tears. Please excuse my absence over the next few days.
