Movie Info for The Christmas Ring on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries:

Stars: Nazneen Contractor and David Alpay.

A reporter searches for the love story behind an antique engagement ring. With the help of the ring’s owner’s grandson, they learn the legacy his grandparent’s left behind. (Nazneen’s hair color is winter hair goals, for reals. Gorgeous. If she looks familiar – she should. Click her bio link above to see more but – she’s been in a ton of amazing shows, like appearing as Rima Harewood in the record-breaking Paramount feature film, Star Trek Into Darkness. And David Alpay? I am a sucker in a man in a jaunty scarf and some stubble like that. And – you might remember him from the CW series “The Vampire Diaries.”)

This movie isn’t your only opportunity to get your holly jolly on, you can have yourself a merry little movie marathon by checking out all 17 holiday movies, all season long, on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Miracles of Christmas! This year, the holidays look a bit different than usual, don’t they?

Peppa Pig & Nick Jr. Make Learning Fun!

Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig – Fun New Addition to the Nick Jr. Line Up!

Have you had a chance to check out this new kids show on Nick Jr. yet? It’s called Peppa Pig, and Abby is totally in love with it! I don’t let her watch a ton of cartoons, and I know that toddlers shouldn’t have too much TV time. But honestly – as a work at home mom, there are times when letting her play with blocks while she giggles away at a fun show on television is the only way that I’m going to get some work done. And, when the shows are helping to reinforce the letters, numbers, animals, colors and other things that I’m teaching her with our flashcards and books, then I think that they’re an ok addition to her day. We have a few favorites: the Baby Signing Time DVD’s have helped Abby and I learn over 100 signs over the past year. Dora gets Abby moving around, and burning off some of that wild toddler energy, as she does “Arms up!” or “Climb! Climb! Climb the ladder with me!” – and it’s so fun to watch her act out the motions. And, Peppa Pig is now a new favorite of ours… Abby thinks the little snorting pig sounds are just about the funniest thing she’s ever seen. Check out a peek….

Peppa Pig Teaches the Alphabet

Yes, it’s silly. But seriously – Abby just can’t get enough of those little piggies! If you want to tune in too, you can catch Peppa Pig on Nick Jr., or watch more episodes right now online. And make sure to follow Nick Jr. on Facebook and Twitter – for fun updates on new shows, giveaways, and promotions!

{Disclaimer: I was compensated with a complimentary DVD copy of Peppa Pig from Child’s Play Communication, so that I could watch them with my family and give you some honest feedback. Free swag never sways me – all opinions are 100% my own. I only endorse what I love – We love this show, and think you will too!}
