#Smurftastic Birthday Party! So glad to be a #crowdtapper

I have told you before about how I LOVE being a #CrowdTapper! Through Crowd Tap I have been able to do 2 Old Navy Shop and shares (See my latest #Crowdtapper post about my Outerwear one here), shared my opinions on a variety or topic, had the opportunity to donate some of my earnings to Autism Speaks, and now I was chosen for a Hosted Party! This one was for the Smurfs Movie.

I was send a digital party kit that included clips from the movie as well as activities and fun ideas I could print out. The party times happened to be right over my daughter's 9th birthday, so Last Saturday she had a #smurftastic birthday party.

If you know me, you know I can never leave thing alone and I tend to go overboard. So I bought the movie to view the whole thing (rather than watching just the provided clips). We planned a couple games from the suggested games (Smurf Bingo, "Papa Smurf Says", and a Treasure Hunt). And I decked out the house in Smurfy blue.

We had about 20 kids over ready to party Smurfy style. We colored the coloring pages (from my digital party pack) as we waited for all the kids to arrive. Then we were set to watch the movie. I grabbed the disc out of the box, and (you won't believe this) as I put it in the DVD player, it CRACKED!! Like TOTALLY cracked! AHHHH...

Luckily "Papa Beckee's Deals" (Aka- Mr Beckee's Deals or Wes) was actually home and not on call (gasp) and was able to run over the Redbox and rent it real quick!! And since I had the games and the digital clips I could use, I was still set with things to do to keep the party going!

When Papa Beckee's Deals returned with the movie, we popped it into our DVD player and settled in with our Smurfy treats to watch it.

Can I throw in a little review here and tell you that I LOVED it! Super Cute! And it has a great cast. Neil Patrick Harris is one of my favorites ever, plus the Smurf voices are all so unique and perfectly cast, plus Hank Azaria as Gargamel! Perfection! There are jokes for parents and kids! I recommend checking it out as a good family film!

That being said, the Party was a great success! I took a few pictures to share (again-avoiding faces so as not to splatter friends faces all over the web). Check out the fun:



 Birthday Girl

 The birthday Girl and I made some Smurfy cupcakes!!






Thanks again Crowdtap for choosing me to host this fun party! My girl had a great birthday and LOVED the Smurfy theme! It truly was Smurftastic!!

***I was provided digital content to use for my party by Crowd Tap. I was asked to have a #Smurftastic party then to report back on it. Purchasing the movie and all the Smurfy extras were done by me. All opinions expressed are my own!!***

Send FREE Missionary Letters to MTC (My Sister is there!!)

I am a member of the Church if Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and my baby sister just entered the missionary training center for our church. When boys and girls in our church go on missions, they cannot call us, they can only email parents and siblings (I think) and that only happens for a short amount of time, once a week. So, we communicate through old fashioned snail mail letters.

I am THE WORST at mailing letters, so yesterday my mom told me about a website, DearElder.com, she had heard of that will print out and hand deliver your typed up letter to your missionary in the MTC (Missionary Training Center) or in Pouch Missions for FREE! YEAH!! I can type up my letter and they will print it, stuff it, and deliver it to her at noon that day (or the next day if I write it after noon).

I have already sent one letter, and I will be actually mailing another one today full of pictures of and by my kids, but this is a fantastic FREE way to send out some love to missionaries in the MTC.

(By the Way They also have packages you can buy to send, but obviously those are not free)

My sister JUST entered the MTC on Wednesday-we have not even heard from her yet! But I know that Christmas will be a little lonely without family for her, so if anyone knows Melanie and would write her a quick note of love and support, I would REALLY appreciate it! Email me at beckeesdeals@gmail.com and I will send you her MTC address!

***I realize I have many readers from different backgrounds and different religious beliefs. But I also know I have many readers of my same faith, and this website/service was too neat not to share. So please forgive me if it does not apply to you. Thanks!***

Our Oral-B Stages III & Oral-B Crest Pro-Health FOR ME Party! #OralBCrestFORME

We had a big weekend here at the Beckee's Deals house. we had to parties that I need to tell you about. the first we had last Friday Night. I was able to do this party through MommyParties sponsored by Oral-B Stages, Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME and it was a blast!

Before I tell you about the party, let me tell you a bit about Oral-B Stages, Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME.

Oral-B Stages has 3 stages of teeth care for kiddos starting at 4 months old all the way up to 7 years old. Each stage is tailored to your kids age.

Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME sort of picks up where the Stages collections cuts off and is geared toward the "tweens". It is (this is a quote from their website) "the first-ever complete collection of oral care products for kids 8-12, with rinse, brush, floss, and toothpaste made just for them. Soon, they’ll be brushing and rinsing for fun. Seriously."

You may recall that I have 5 kids ages 8 months, 3, 5, 7, and as of last week 9. I can tell you we have used all these and my kids LOVE them! And I love that I can easily identify and find the right tools for each age as my kids grow.

Now, Let me tell you about the Party!! The sponsors sent me a party pack that included the following:
  • (11) Toothbrushes. Some were Oral-B Stage III Brushes, others were Pro-Health FOR ME Brushes
  • (11) total flossers: Some were Oral-B Stages Flossers and some were Pro-Health FOR ME Floss Picks
  • (11) Pro-Health FOR ME Paste
  • (11) Cars II Gummy Vitamins samples
  • (11) Balloons
  • (11) Popcorn boxes for guests
  • (11) Guest Gift Bags
  • (3) Pro-Health FOR ME Rinse
  • (1) Disney’s Cars II Movie DVD
  • Recipe & Activity Ideas
  • Cars II Playdate Invites
I was asked to have a Cars 2 viewing party and given some fun activities and great prizes to hand out (as you can see from the list above. I took the bags they provided and put together little (well big really) bags for the kids to take home with them. I had 18 kids come so I had to go get a few more of the items to make sure everyone got a goodie bag.
 
When everyone got here, we played a game that was sent in my party pack about what promotes Healthy teeth and what is not good for your teeth. It want well and we talked a bit about the items provided by Oral B and Crest that they would be taking home.

Then it was on to the movie. I set up a "movie theater" in my living room with a concession stand in the kitchen and dining room. We ate pizza for dinner and had lots of junk food (I told them to make sure to go home and use their new Oral B/Crest goodies to clean their teeth!)

It was a BLAST! I think everyone had a great time and they loved, LOVED their goodie bags! It was nice to be able to send them home with something useful and fun (and BIG-full size tooth paste and toothbrushes and flossers!!) I took some creative pictures to share with you so as not to show all my friends kids faces on my public blog. There is also a video of MY kids from RIGHT after their friends left. They are talking about what they cannot wait to try! Here are the pictures:
Playing the game!

 Some Concession Stand foods...

 The loot...

Here is the video of my kids after the party talking about what they are most excited to try!! It is sideways because for some reason when I rotate it, it cuts off and screws the whole video up...sorry!

I love having fun activities like this at my house! Thank you again MommyParties, Oral-B Stages, and Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME!!

***Disclosure: I was provided the above mentioned party pack free of charge. I was asked to give the party and write a blog post about it in return. I was not compensated in any other way for this party or this post!***
