I absolutely LOVE this time of year! On top of shopping, Christmas decorations and baking, there are endless Christmas crafts to do. Having small children, I find myself doing a lot of the kid friendly ones. Especially since I like getting them involved. I think every Christmas should be handmade, right down to the gifts!
This donut snowman was the cutest idea ever for my kids to help make. Thanks to one of my favorite blogs The idea Room. I made a few to stick… Continue

It feels really good to win. Whether it's a blog giveaway or a $10 off a scratch ticket. And it feels even better once you receive your winnings. But what happens when you don't?
One comes to mind when I think of winning, then loosing. I entered to win a prize pack of a stroller and portable DVD player months ago. Sometime in the summer and was so excited! I had never won anything so big before and still have yet to top that prize. But sadly I only received half of my winning. And I feel… Continue

When I think of my childhood christmas', I think of chocolate chip cookies, tamales, christmas music, family and ripping wrapping paper off my gifts and throwing it all over the place. So as a mom now I pretty much got it all down, minus the tamales which I just have no clue how to make.the past 5 years for Christmas, I make a billion kajillion cookies and listen to christmas music non stop. Christmas Eve I spend my night wrapping gifts and stuffing my face with my billion kajillin… Continue

I just wanted to write a little about my daughter who was having trouble making friends at school. I know there are other parents that might be concerned about their kids and their friends...or lack there of.
My daughter is in kindergarten and as far as I knew, she was outgoing and had friends in preschool. I knew elementary school would be different and I was right. The first week of school I stalked my baby from my car after dropping her off. What? My first born was in regular… Continue

I am all about breastfeeding. My first child I breastfed for a year. My second I only did it for about a month. (I really regret that but I suffered from post partum depression and never even wanted to get out of bed, let alone feed my baby. Thank God for my husband and mother in law!) My third I was able to nurse for about 17 months. I finally gave up because I was pregnant with my fourth, and well, just exhausted from everything.
So now I am proudly breastfeeding my fourth, going… Continue

So I know this isn't a giveaway listing but I thought I would write about a few things I absolutely hate when it comes to a blog giveaway. Ahem...
The one thing I hate the absolute most is when there are hundreds or thousands of comments on the page and you have to wait FOREVER for all of them to load and have to scroll all the way down the the bottom each time you post a comment. That is sooo annoying. Especially when you can very easily make it so there are only x amount of… Continue

As a Christian mom, becoming more and more close to Christ, I can't help but feel a little weird about the way we celebrate this time of year.
The way I grew up was believing in Santa claus. And to be honest it wasn't until I was a little older when I learned the true meaning of Christmas. My kids are young (5,4,3 and 1) but even at these young ages, the 3 older ones know exactly what Christmas is. They are aware that we are celebrating the birth of our lord and savior… Continue

I was watching the girls play this morning and trying to imagine what they might be when they grow up. If you were to ask them, Cammy would say a singer and a doctor. Aubrey would say a princess. Kaitlyn would probably say "um...monkey!" and Gracy would just say mama. I know they are still VERY young but I couldn't help but imagine… Continue
