Chewy.com: Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats


Our dog Maisy was once again able to try out a new product from Chewy.com, and just in time for fall. Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats.

Grandma Lucy’s organic dog treats are not made in a factory but baked in a bakery by people who love their pets.

What I like about them:
  • Suitable for all life stages
  • 100% USDA Organic, USA originated ingredients
  • Oven baked
  • Human-grade ingredients
  • No by-products, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors
  • Certified kosher
  • Made in the USA
I opened the bag and they smell just like something I would eat as a snack!! Here is a list of the ingredients:

Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Sunflower and/or Organic Canola Oil and/or Organic Palm Oil, Organic Cane Juice Syrup, Organic Pumpkin Powder, Organic Mace, Organic Cinnamon, Soy Lecithin.

That sounds better than most of the things I eat!!  I am still pretty tempted to try one, especially since they are pumpkin flavored, but hubby has told me I shouldn't eat dog treats, so I've refrained.  :) Maisy loves them!


Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Chewy.com.  Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats are just $5.15 for a 14oz bag.

Chewy.com has a 100% Unconditional Satisfaction Guarantee. If you're not 100% completely satisfied for any reason whatsoever, return it!

Apologia's iWitness Series Review

Apologia Review

We have had the opportunity the past couple months to read and review three books from Apologia Educational Ministries.

These three new apologetics resources are part of the iWitness Series.  iWitness Biblical Archaeology, Old Testament iWitness, and New Testament iWitness.


This iWitness series help children get answers to questions about the Bible, historical places, people, and events.  Each book digs deep to prove the truth.


Doug Powell, who has a masters degree in Christian apologetics, is the author of these interesting and interactive books.  He describes each book as a "stack of documents the reader has to make sense of as if they’re doing their own investigation".  

Apologia Review
iWitness Biblical Archaeology digs into the history of the Bible, from The Flood to The Burial Shroud of Jesus.  Did The Flood really happen?  Where is Noah's Ark located?  This book really delves into how we can answer the questions and more.

Reading about the Dead Sea Scrolls and how and where they were found was interesting, as well as the section about Jesus' World. 

Pictures of Peter's house and a Galilee boat are just a few of the many pictures that really bring the story alive!

Apologia Review

Old Testament iWitness explains how the Old Testament is different from the Hebrew Bible.  It inquires into who wrote the books of the Old Testament and how they were collected.

From reviewing old manuscripts to looking at the prophets, this book takes the reader on an interesting and thoughtful journey.

I thought the sections on the major and minor prophets were especially interesting.  Each is listed with their name, dates, and purpose, along with pictures.

Apologia Review

The New Testament iWitness I think is my favorite and most interesting of the three books.  It uncovers by sorting through all the information. Who wrote it and how do we know?  How was it handed down?  Were there any books left out and why?

This books investigates canon criteria, church fathers, The Gospel, rejected books, and recovered texts.

One of the most interesting sections for me was about the differences in the copies. Sometimes scribes made intentional errors because they thought something needed correcting.

My Thoughts:  Overall I think these three books are well presented and visually stimulating for both child and adult.  Funny Bunny and I sat together and I read them aloud.  She is 11 years old, and although some of the topics were a little confusing to her, she understood and appreciated most of it.  We enjoyed looking at the beautiful pictures.


Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Apologia Educational Ministries. iWitness Biblical ArchaeologyOld Testament iWitness, and New Testament iWitness are just $14 each and are recommended for ages 11 and up.

You can also find Apologia on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Pinterest.

Diary of a Real Payne Book 3: Oh Baby! Review


Look out, Spooner, Wisconsin (and the whole rest of the world!) - it's EJ Payne!

And with her is an adorable new little bundle of trouble, Faith Payne! With a new little adopted sister, EJ can't wait to watch Faith's first steps in Converse All-Stars and hear her cute little giggles.

But not all is going right. CoraLee McCallister is as mean to EJ as ever, and the Space Invader, Isaac, is still going on his space-invading career. And although these things may seem bad, EJ knows the good things - her best friend Macy, her babysitting class, and her two favorite neighbor's wedding - in life will always be there for her, and so will God!

In the third book in the Diary of a Real Payne series, EJ faces the challenges of 5th grade, babysitting, her mean church-and-class mate, CoraLee McCallister, and wedding worries, and her cute but scream-y (and smelly) sister, Faith. EJ makes decisions based on what Jesus would do. And most of all, she lets her imagination run free!

I really liked Diary of a Real Payne Book 3: Oh Baby! because, like the last two, EJ is as silly, imaginative, and unsophisticated as ever, while she still praises and learns about God. I think EJ relates to a lot of us, because, like she says: "I'm a lot like Anne Shirley. Well-meaning but accident prone." I think we all think like this at one point!

The book was outstanding and it definitely made me (as always, with EJ) want more!
