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:
Ohhhhhh… sometimes I hate our internet… I had already written this cute little post with pictures and everything only to have our internet glitch and lose EVERYTHING!
So here we go again…
Today was a bit extremely hectic and I really didn’t feel like cooking want to cook but the little humans who had been EXTREMELY loud and crazy today were really getting on my nerves and Mr. Awesome had only asked me a few times what we were having for dinner so I figured that I should probably go ahead and get dinner started.
(Those freezer meals I put together the other day were really tempting me but Mr. Awesome had already seen ‘steak’ on the menu so freezer meals were ruled out.)
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.
Have your kids ever climbed into your bed because they were afraid of the monsters under their bed? Well, you may need to make up some Bye, Bye Monster Spray to keep those pesky monsters away! Plus the lavender essential oil may even help your kids sleep a little better.
If you don’t care for lavender oil you can use just about any other oil that you prefer.
Do you feel guilty every time you grab that container of cleaning wipes from under the sink? I know I do, especially when it is so easy to make my own! Since we’ve gotten motivated to go further on our ‘chemical-free’ journey I have really been trying my best to eliminate nasty, toxic chemicals from our home in any way possible. These not only do that but they also save us a ton of money since we aren’t buying those expensive cleaning wipes anymore.
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:
