Ben 10: Ultimate Alien Cosmetic Destruction

The only video game based on the newest season of the immensely popular Cartoon Network’s BEN 10 television series, players take control of Ben Tennyson and up to 17 alien forms in BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN: COSMIC DESTRUCTION  As players you journey to worldwide locales, including Paris, Tokyo, China, and Rome, in search of an ancient alien artifact that will help save humanity from a mysterious cosmic storm.

In the beginning my girls weren’t sure if this game was for them, however it didn’t take long to really get into the fast-paced action and have fun.  BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN: COSMIC DESTRUCTION had my kids engaged with its puzzles and challenges.  They also got a kick out of the fact that it had the original “voice” actors, sounds, and true storyline.

Published by D3Publisher, BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN: COSMIC DESTRUCTION is available on Xbox 360, Wii™, PlayStation and Nintendo DS systems.

9Lives Daily Essentials Review & Giveaway!

A survey of feline pet parents across the country commissioned by 9Lives found that an overwhelming 94 percent of cat owners are confident they feed their felines the most nutritious meals possible. However, nearly half (48 percent) admit they´ve fed their cats table scraps – which do not provide the essential nutrients cats need – an average seven times per month. I know that I do my best to serve nutritious food to my 2 cats, Maddy & Phoebe, however I’m sure I’ve made some weak choices in the past. These are my little furry buddies! I need to do better.

In an effort to educate pet parents about the common misperceptions of proper feline nutrition, 9Lives is committed to raising awareness to this issue by providing advanced nutrition for all cats.  With their latest offering, 9Lives Daily Essentials, feline parents everywhere can rest assured knowing their cats are getting the essential nutrients they need to help promote healthy skin and coat, strong muscle growth and a healthy immune system among other benefits.

My cats are really enjoying their 9Lives Daily Essentials.  I’ve been watching them closely and they’ve been eating, with no reverse effects (Know what I mean?  Food stays down ;-> ).  When I go near their food dish they follow me, hoping for a little more.  That’s good! 

If you have cats, would you like a chance to win a wonderful prize pack (1 lb. bag of Daily Essentials, 1 Food Scooper/Bag Clip, cat toys – 2 crinkle balls, 1 fuzzy ball, 1 squeaky/catnip filled mouse, 1 9Lives refrigerator magnet)  from 9Lives?   Of course you would!

I have been hearing the heavy sighs of Disney World for years from my girls. And it isn’t just from them, my husband and I want to go too! I had a dream that we would able to make it happen this past September but things have changed in our household and Disney World is still a dream.

Ah, to be in a warm, sunny climate. We’ve seen the amusement park on T.V. and the thought of actually being on those rides is enough to make my heart skip a beat. Sharing the experience of seeing Cinderella’s castle with my girls, knowing full well they’ve dreamed of this moment. Disney World holds a happiness that is hard to contain and it’s a family experience that my husband and I really want to make happen. We keep telling the girls the infamous phrase “Someday…” I can’t let go of that dream, I believe it will happen, someday.
