Do you have a gamer in your house? I absolutely do! Hubby has always enjoyed video games and now, my son has been bitten by the gaming bug. I guess you could say it runs in his genes! We have to limit the time he is allowed to spend playing games or he would be glued all day. If you have a young gamer, you know exactly what I am talking about! Although I am not a gamer myself, we make it a family night and even my four-year daughter loves to take her turn with Daddy and Austin.
Their favorite game is currently…Mario Cart! They love that they can all play together and they love racing!
Austin loves to stroll by the electronics department in any of the stores we frequent to see if there are any new games that catches his eye. On a recent stroll he noticed a sign for the new Forza Motorsport 5. “Is it a racing game?” he asked. I replied it was and he became so excited! They looked like real cars, driving on a real road, that is appealing even to a five-year old!
While we do not own a Xbox or an Xbox One, either one would be an awesome gift for the family and what better to add to it than the Forza 5 game?
While he doesn’t know it, I purchased the game on a recent shopping trip to Walmart. For our family, snacks and video games go hand in hand!

M&M Pixel Art Anyone?
While M&Ms are totally delicious to devour we decided to do something a little bit more creative with ours than just eat! We created, M&M Pixel Art for the #FueledbyMM Instagram Contest. When I started talking about what we were going to spend the afternoon on, the kids both became excited.
Austin immediately asked for Mario, since it is who automaticaly thinks of with regards to video games.
Addie asked for the Princess, and although I wasn’t totally successful, we did create a Minnie Mouse she was happy with!
