About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Syma S107 Remote Control Helicopter

Big Kid has been given a few of the $50+ R/C helicopters from Target, Toys R Us and such, and all have broken within fifteen minutes of coming out of the box. The bodies are styrofoam, the blades fall off or pop in half the first time it touches a wall... they are awful and really disappointing to a boy who is trying to have fun with it!

Well, I am posting about this specific one because I am just floored. I spent $20 on this during an amazon sale, and wow is it awesome!!! Big Kid has been playing with it every chance he gets for days now, and has mastered flying it and is in love. The replacement parts are cheap and easy to install according to the website and instructions, not that we need any! THIS THING ROCKS! Plastic and metal body construction, the blades have even been attacked midflight by our cat and are in new condition... the kitty did chew the rear prop but I straightened it out and it's perfect again. I am so impressed I just had to tell someone!

If you are looking for a fun toy for your son/husband, you should check this out! The amazon reviews are excellent, and now I know why!!! WOOHOO!

    Is this the same one that southern savers has posted?

  2. No, it's posted on hip2save.com under "amazon helicopter" if you search for it! It was posted a few days ago. You can also just look for it on amazon, it'll come up under it's name!
