SYNOPSIS: 
Tiny or tall, brave or smallit is the size of our hearts that matter at all …
Legend tells that deep in the Land of Cambria, in the heart of the Magical Forest, a tiny race of enchanted beings, no bigger than a butterfly, still call the forest their home. Hidden away from the prying eyes of humans, these magical fairies keep their magic a secret from those who would use it for evil. Yet after thousands of years in hiding, the secret of the fairies is about to come out…
For young Raine, being a princess of the Magical Forest means duty before desire, and her fate to marry a fairy of her father’s choosing becomes a bit more complicated when she accidentally falls for Bryce—a human. In a desperate plea to be with the man she loves, Raine seeks the aid of Vitra, the Dragon Queen of the Dark Forest, in order to become a human and catch Bryce’s eye.
Blinded by true love and guided by destiny, Raine’s journey will jeopardize those she is sworn to protect and leave the fate of the Magical Forest to the evil forces at play. Can she save her kingdom from darkness? Or will she give up her heart’s true desire in order to realize her destiny?


EXCERPT: 
You’ve heard the stories Cinderella, Snow White, The Princess and the Pea, and stories with many other fairy tale princesses. But this is the story of Raine, Princess of the Magical Forest in the land of Cambria, and how she became a real girl … well, almost.
At one time, fairies were tiny creatures, hardly ever seen by humans, and would go easily unnoticed. In fact, they were often mistaken as butterflies in the land of Cambria. But upon closer examination, one could see that they weren’t butterflies at all, but beautiful ladies and handsome gentlemen with lovely wings of many colors. Some had wings of white, others of red, blue, and green … just about every color of the rainbow was represented within the fairy community. But Raine’s wings were special; different from all other fairies. They shone iridescent in the sunlight, appearing in soft shades of pink at times and pale purple at other times, depending upon her mood. Her wings complemented her golden blonde hair, and iridescent fairy dust brushed across her pale cheeks. She was the royal princess, and her wings were special … almost as special as she.
Raine loved spending her time in the forest, hidden by man. Long ago in Cambria, before Raine’s time, men had captured fairies and forced them to use their magical abilities for their own selfish needs or wants. So, the fairies took to the Magical Forest and made their home there, safe and secure, hidden from the prying eyes of man.
Most fairies were afraid of humans—having heard the stories of their cruelty over the years—and stayed hidden deep in the forest. Sometimes, a human or two would catch a fleeting glimpse of what they thought to be a fairy, but the magical creature would fly off quickly, leaving the human to wonder if they had really seen a fairy or if their eyes were playing tricks on them. Usually, the humans vowed to have their eyes checked and then journeyed on their way, no more the wiser of what lay hidden in the depths of the Magical Forest.
But Raine wasn’t like other fairies; she was curious.

Valentine's Day for Kids: 
More Ways to Spend Time With Your Child

Thank you for joining me for my blog series Valentine’s Day for Kids! Over the last few weeks, I’ve given you several ideas to do with your child on Valentine’s Day from arts and crafts, to party ideas, to adventurous activities, but the most important thing is spending time together.
Whether your child likes skate boarding or Barbie Dolls, Yu-Gi-Oh! or zip lining, think of your child’s interest and do something fun with them that they will enjoy and then do it. Think of ways to get them out of the house, off the computers, and away from cell phones. Then, do something fun, whether it’s cooking together, planning a party, creating Valentine’s Day crafts and cards, or going on an adventure, what you are really creating are memories that will last a lifetime.
Here are a few more ideas:
·       Heart Hunt: Instead of going on a scavenger hunt, go on a heart hunt with your child! Write special messages on Valentine hearts and hide them throughout the house. Let your child find them for something special. Also, one message could give a clue leading to the next until they find the special something at the end … you!
·         Rose Stamps: The end of celery stalks make a wonderful rose stamp! Cut off the end toward the base of the celery, dip in red paint, and press onto paper for a cute Valentine rose! Create personalized Valentines with your child!
·         Heart Wreath: Cut strips of construction paper the same length. Fold in half, Then, bend the ends to the inside and glue together to create a heart. Next, glue the hearts side by side until a circle or a heart is formed. This will create an easy and festive heart wreath!
·         Valentine Tree: Another fun craft to create with your child is a Valentine Tree, made from your child’s handprint! First, trace your child’s hand on brown paper to make the tree trunk. Cut out and set aside. Next, create open hearts as directed above under Heart Wreath. Glue the open hearts together side by side ad glue down onto the handprint until the top of the tree is filled. This will create a wonderful memory to keep forever!
So, no matter what activity you chose to do with your child on Valentine’s Day, the most important thing is spending quality time together. Pick an activity or two and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day for Kids: Fun Party Ideas

Valentine's Day for Kids:
Time to Party! 

As Valentine’s Day draws near, it’s time to plan the party! Include your child and have a great time planning together! Three important aspects to planning any party are the decorations, party favors, and planning the menu. We’ll take one at a time.
·         Decorations: A fun way to decorate for a Valentine’s Day party is to first spread a red or white tablecloth over the table, and then top it off with butcher paper in a contrasting color lengthwise across. Cut out hearts in various colors of construction paper and strew haphazardly across the table. Next, add sparkly confetti hearts for a fun Valentine’s Day look! Also, tie Valentine’s Day balloons to the backs of the chairs for a festive look. For place settings, create Valentine Smartie Butterflies with each person’s name on them. Just cut butterflies from construction paper and decorate, glue a Smartie down for the body, add red pipe cleaners for antennae tied to the Smartie, and you have a beautiful Valentine butterfly! For a centerpiece, create a Valentine gift basket filled with candy, a Valentine Teddy Bear, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic, baseball cards, or items your children and their friends love. It can be given away as a door prize at the end of the party!
·         Valentine’s Day Party Cuisine: Even though we’ve gone over many dishes to make for Valentine’s Day over the last few weeks, here are a few more ideas to make your Valentine’s Day party special for you and your child. Make Heart-Shaped Pizza! Mix the crust according to package directions—Martha White or Chef Boyardee is the best. When the dough is made, shape into a heart on the pan. Next, add sauce, leaving the edges plain. Add meats and vegetables according to taste. Make a few pizzas and you’ll have the perfect Valentine’s Day Party fare for kids! For desert, create Banana Boats! First, peel a banana and slice into one side, creating a boat. Add strawberries, blueberries, and other berries of your choice. Next, drizzle honey across the top, add a dollop of whipped cream, and you have a healthy Valentine’s Day desert!
·         Valentine’s Day Party Activities: Heart Bingo is a fun party game! Create game cards out of card stock. Then, cut little hearts to use as covers. You can also create Heart Tic Tac Toe boards, with one person using one color heart cover with the person using another color. Another fun party activity for children is to make Valentine’s Day party hats! Measure paper strips around a child’s head for a headband. Decorate with paper and craft foam hearts, add some pipe cleaners with hearts on the ends for antennae, and your child has a cute party hat!
The most important thing about any party is spending quality time together and having fun! When you and your child use your imaginations, the sky’s the limit on what you can create and the fun that can be shared!

Valentine's Day for Kids: Fun Deserts to Make With Your Children

Valentine's Day for Kids:
Fun Deserts to Make With Your Children
     Making deserts is a wonderful way to send Valentine’s Day with your kids, and to do something fun and delicious at the same time! Here are some ideas for deserts that you and your child will love to create together as much as you’ll enjoy eating.



Cupid Chow: I took a Reindeer Chow recipe and modified it for Valentine’s Day to create Cupid Chow! Here it is:
1 box Chex Corn Cereal (14 ox.)
1 cup white chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cup pretzel pieces
2 cups Valentine M&Ms
Heart shaped sprinkles
Heart red hot candies, if desired
     Pour Chex cereal into a large bowl and set aside. In another bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Melt in microwave on high heat for 1 minute. Stir and continue heating for another 30 seconds. Remove from microwave. Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal and stir to evenly distribute. In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, pour in 2 cups powdered sugar. Add chocolate mix, and shake well. Pour Chex mix into a bowl, then add pretzels and candy, mix well and serve. 
     This is a yummy desert that’s fun to make and just as much fun to eat!


Valentine’s Day Parfaits: Your child will be amazed at the science behind this fun desert, and will enjoy eating it just as much! Mix strawberry Jell-O according to package directions. Add in a can of drained mixed fruit of your choice and stir. Spoon some Jell-O mixture into fluted glasses and lay them on their sides on a cookie sheet. Slide into refrigerator and let set. (The Jell-O mixture will set up perfectly on the side of the glass.) While mixture is setting, mix strawberry instant pudding according to package directions. When Jell-O glasses are ready, set them upright. The Jell-O will stick to the side of the glass and will be slanted. Add pudding to the other side until even with the set Jell-O. Top with whipped cream and a slices strawberry on top! Place in refrigerator until pudding is set. After dinner, serve and enjoy!


Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies: Here is a yummy sugar cookie recipe that is very easy to make. Afterward, we’ll decorate them for Valentine’s Day! Here’s the recipe: 

1 egg
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
½ cup margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
1. Mix dry ingredients first. With a hand mixer, blend in margarine alternately with egg. Stir in vanilla. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until edges are brown.
2. Once cookies are cool, spread white or cream cheese icing across the top. Then, place a conversation heart on each cookie. Voila! Instant Valentine’s Day cookies to enjoy at home or for your child to share with their classmates at school!

Sour Milk Valentine’s Day Doughnuts:  This is a wonderful recipe for doughnuts. Don’t let the “sour milk” fool you! This recipe is delicious!

1. Make Sour Milk: Mix together 1 cup milk with 1 tbsp. white vinegar. Let stand 5 minutes.
2. Sour Milk Doughnut Recipe: Beat 2 eggs until thick and lemon-colored. Add 1 cup sugar and beat until smooth. Stir in ¼ cup cooking oil and 1 tsp. vanilla. Stir together 4 cups all-purpose flour, 4 tsp. baking powder, ¾ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. baking soda. Add to the egg mixture alternately with 1 cup sour milk or buttermilk, beating thoroughly. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, roll dough ½ in. thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Fry in deep fryer (375 degrees) until doughnuts are golden brown, about 3 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper toweling.
3. Decorate: Once doughnuts are cool, ice with vanilla or cream cheese premade icing. Add Valentine sprinkles and you have a wonderful desert that’s just as much fun to make as it is to eat!
These are just a few wonderful deserts that you can make with your children. With your favorite recipe and a little imagination, the sky’s the limit on what you and your child can create together!

Valentine's Day for Kids: Homemade Gifts to make, use, or eat!

Valentine’s Day for Kids:

Homemade gift ideas your child 
will love to make, use, or eat!

Want to give your child something special for Valentine’s Day? Instead of buying something, why not make it with your child?
·         Valentine’ Day Gift Box: Create a Valentine Gift Box for your child, filled with things your child loves! For instance, if he or she likes Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic, or baseball cards, then place some packs into the box, along with other items your child will love. Make sure to line the box with tissue paper first. Then, place your child’s favorite candy, cards, or small toys in the box! It’s a personalized gift that he or she will be sure to love!
·         Make Beaded Necklaces, bracelets, or lanyards: Children love to string beads! Why not buy a bead kit and create necklaces, bracelets, or a lanyard to use at school? You and your child will create great memories, as well! There’s a great, inexpensive kit at Walmart! Just My Style 11,000 Beads Bracelet Kit by Horizon Group USA, and it’s only $9.97! (at the time of this writing) Think boys won’t like beading? Think again! Boys love to create lanyards, necklaces, and bracelets, too! And it’s a great way to spend time with your child on Valentine’s Day.
·         KitKat Bowl: Who wouldn’t like a candy bowl, decorated with KitKat bars? For this bowl, you will need approximately 32 KitKat bars, vanilla or chocolate icing, and Reece’s Pieces or M&Ms, a clean, small glass bowl—with straight sides preferred—and red ribbon. First, spread icing on the back of the KitKat bars, one at a time, and “glue” onto outside of the glass bowl. Hold for a moment to seal. The icing will harden as it sets. After the outside of the bowl is completely covered with KitKats and icing, tie a red ribbon around it and tie off with a bow. Last, line the inside of the bowl with tissue paper and fill with Reece’s Pieces or M&M candies. It’s a fun and tasty way to spend Valentine’s Day together!
·         Recycled Crayon Valentine’s Day Heart: Here’s a way to recycle your old crayons! Save crayons in various colors. When you have a good collection, cut them into small pieces and artfully arrange in a heart-shaped muffin tin or any shape of your choice. Bake at 200 degrees until melted. Cool thoroughly, pop out of baking tin and … voila! Instant heart-shaped crayons! Arrange in a tissue-lined bowl. Each time your child uses one of the crayons, they will remember the wonderful time they shared with you making them!
·         Marshmallow Pops: This is one gift that your children will love helping you make just as much as they will enjoy eating! First, melt white chocolate morsels on the stove according to package directions. Next, cut a slit into the center of a marshmallow, then skewer with a paper straw, and freeze for 5-10 minutes. The marshmallow will adhere more readily to the straw. Once chocolate is melted, dip the skewered marshmallow into it until covered, and decorate with sprinkles, coconut, or icing in various colors you like! It’s a great, fun, and tasty way to spend time with your kids!
These are just a few gifts to create with your child. With a little glue, or chocolate and candy, crayons, and more, there’s no telling what you can create … together!

Valentine's Day for Kids: Share Your Love of Cooking With Your Child

Valentine's Day for Kids: 
Cooking is a great way to spend 
Valentine's Day with your child!

Like to cook? Why not pass your love of cooking on to your child? A great way to spend time together is to make a Valentine’s Day meal!
A wonderful way to start the day cooking with your child is by making homemade pancakes! The best recipe is Favorite Pancakes, a recipe that was in a cookbook my grandmother gave me for my thirteenth birthday, and it’s the same recipe I make for my own children now. Here it is:
Stir together 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, 1 tbsp. sugar, and ½ tsp. salt. Set aside. In a smaller bowl, combine 1 beaten egg, 1 cup milk, and 2 tbs. cooking oil. Add to dry ingredients, and stir just until moistened. (For thinner pancakes, add 2 tbsp. more milk.) Bake on hot, lightly greased griddle using ¼ cup batter for each 4 in. pancake or 2 tbsp. batter for each dollar-sized pancake. Makes eight 4-inch or 16 dollar-sized pancakes.
Pending the age of your child, one of the great non-cooking activities you can do with your child is to make submarine sandwiches together! My father seldom cooked while I was growing up, but when he did, his favorite thing to make us was submarine sandwiches. Before assembly, cut a three-foot loaf of French bread or Cuban bread in half from one length to the other. Also, cut luncheon meats in half, creating half circles. My father always used to use Munster cheese instead of the traditional American cheese. Try it! I promise you won’t regret it. Also, slice fresh tomatoes into a bowl, and fresh onions slices in another (if desired). Now comes the assembly! Sprinkle Wishbone Italian dressing over the insides of both halves of the bread. Next, place the luncheon meat of your choice over the bottom half, overlapping the pieces slightly. Then, add another layer of another type of meat. Add a layer of cheese, and tomato slices over the meat. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. (Sea salt is best.) Add torn lettuce. (Cut lettuce will brown quicker.) Last, add fresh onion slices, if desired. Sprinkle with more Italian dressing, place the “top” on the sandwich, cut into desired slice sizes, and serve! Add chips and it’s a casual Valentine’s Day meal you will always remember!
But if you’d like to really cook, then make homemade pizza with your child! First, get the Chef Boyardee pizza double pack.* Next, prepare the dough as instructed in a glass bowl, open the oven door and place a dishtowel down on the open door. Set the glass bowl as close as you can to the heat as you can and cover with another dishtowel. Wait five minutes. (The heat activates the yeast in the dough.) Next, oil a large, round pizza pan as well as your clean fingertips. (Your child will love this!) Push out the dough from the center to the edges, careful not to tear the dough. However, if dough tears just pinch it back together and it will seal nicely. Then, spread pizza sauce over the dough, leaving the edges bare. Place pepperoni; fried, crumbled sausage; vegetables; or items of your choice on the top. Last, sprinkle shredded Mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake on 400 degrees on the top shelf until edges of crust and cheese are golden brown, about 10-13 minutes. Once the pizza is cool, enjoy the pizza with your family … but enjoy the memories even more!
*NOTE: Martha White packaged pizza dough mix can be used instead and is just as delicious!
Now for desert! Homemade S’mores! Although the ideal way to make s’mores is on the open campfire, they’re great in the microwave, too! Just place two graham cracker squares on a plate. Then, place half of a chocolate bar on top, along with a marshmallow. Microwave for 15-20 seconds, place another double graham cracker square on top and enjoy!
No matter what recipe you make, the most important thing is spending time cooking with your child. Some of the best memories I have of my family is when we cooked together. Create lots of memories, and a fabulous meal, too!

In the total experience, you will get a lesson on how to groom a horse, including how to brush down and saddle. The experience also includes a one-hour trail ride, and an untacking lesson, which includes bathing the horse. Located on the scenic Lake Tohopekaliga, the Lazy H Ranch trail rides are beautiful, and they offer trail rides for novice and experienced riders alike. They even offer two-hour horse parties where your child gets to ride and paint the horse! Perfect for a Valentine’s Day party! So, saddle up and enjoy a trail ride with your child today!

If you and your children are the daring types, then enjoy an adventure neither of you will forget! All the activities mentioned above are located in Kissimmee, Florida, but look around your area for safe, adventurous activities. When I was a child, we had horses, and I still remember the fun we had together as a family riding and caring for them. As an adult, I took my own child on a trail ride and he loved it! It’s a memory we share and will never forget. Create your own memories with your children and have a special Valentine’s Day together!
