Life Update: Dentist Appointments, Bread Store, and New Glasses

This post actually started out as a different post but it got so long that I broke it down and decided to share this part of it with you today!

Things have been SO CRAZY BUSY here lately… I can’t tell you about everything we’ve been up to but I will let you know about a few things we have been doing down below. We are so excited about EVERYTHING that is going on and we just can’t wait to SPILL THE BEANS with EVERYONE!

For now, though I’ll tell you about some of our latest adventures here in our little cabin.

A trip to the movies

We took them ALL to see the new Lion King and it was so GOOD! My oldest son was a HUGE Lion King fan when he was little… and I believe he may still be very partial to the original but my younger kids only knew about the new Disney version of the series.

Here’s a trailer for it if you haven’t seen it yet:

Oh, What a day! Freezer meals, Pinterest Suspension, and No Toilet Paper

Oh my goodness, what a day I’ve had and it isn’t even been lunchtime yet. I actually went to bed early last night as I was just so exhausted. Mr. Awesome had a meeting and wouldn’t be home until late so I made the most of the evening.

The kids helped me make Chili Dog Casserole for dinner. We made it a little bit different as we just put the hotdogs into hotdog buns, instead of tortillas, and then spread the chili sauce on top and sprinkled with cheese before baking.

Mr. Awesome is not crazy about the tortilla version so we decided to give it a try this way and it was a WINNER! Continue reading “Oh, What a day! Freezer meals, Pinterest Suspension, and No Toilet Paper”

No More Itsy Bitsy Spiders!

Do you hate spiders? Ok, well the ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’ nursery rhyme is kinda cute but I don’t want any spiders anywhere inside of my house and neither do the kids. This video made me think of how my kids act when they see a spider:

Getting Kids To Help In The Kitchen

myAvatar (1)Mommas, I know how things can get when you let the kids help out in the kitchen. They get underfoot and you have to repeat things over and over again and again. In fact, many times things seem to go faster when you don’t let them help but trust me, you want them to help just as much as they want to help. In the long run, it will be beneficial to everyone if you can get them in the kitchen as soon as possible! Continue reading “Getting Kids To Help In The Kitchen”

Being the change …

Here at our little cabin, we’ve been on a mission to ‘Go Green’ or at least go greener than we have been and let me tell you that it has not been an entirely smooth path. I’ve spent countless hours researching products and companies, then spent money on products that seemed like they would be a good fit only to find out that they didn’t work for us.

I have found some products that I really loved but I had to pay a yearly subscription fee or had a minimum monthly purchase required to be able to keep buying them. Well, no more hassles here. I’ve found a company that offers everything we need and more.

The first product I ordered was a couple of these cute little ‘pet to dry’ hand towels for the bathroom:

The kids love using them and I love that they don’t get pulled off the towel bar every time someone washes their hands. They also have this great BacLock feature that keeps them from getting all sour-smelling… you know what I mean. Yuck!

I recently placed another order for even more products and made the decision to join the company as an Independent Sales Consultant. Yay!! I have been pondering the idea for a while after stumbling across some YouTube videos a few months back. I had been hesitating because I was waiting for the right time… I’m sure many of you can relate.

Wildcraft! An Herbal Adventure Game

Just in case you haven’t read about the Wildcraft game or the Learning Herbs books in any of my previous posts I’m going to share this with you now. My kids have absolutely been loving the Herb Studies we’ve incorporated into our Kirby’s Kids Academic Adventures. Recently I came across the Herb Fairies book series that they are enjoying as well. When I purchased the book series Amazon had recommended this game, Wildcraft! An Herbal Adventure Game, as others had also purchased it. I did buy the game and my kids love it!

Kick The Summer Blues With Some Learning Adventures

Are your kids complaining that they are bored yet? Well, mine pretty much know better than to tell me they are bored because Momma will find lots for them to do like cleaning out the van or the stinky trash can… lol. We have some fun things also like working on our Kirby’s Kids Academic Adventures.

My kids also love doing unit studies as they love learning. Whether they are asking about the stripes on tigers or how a robot works I can usually find a unit study for over at UnitStudy.com. Right now they have a few specials going on that you might want to check out for your kiddos or grandkids to help keep their brains from turning to mush over the summer vacation.

Show Your American Pride With SA Co.

The 4th of July may have passed but we can show our American Pride any time of the year! Mr. Awesome and I have been working outside a lot lately. So much in fact that we both have been sunburned on the top of sunburn even though we’ve tried to be careful. I even sunburned my scalp and forehead with a bandana on!
