Picture Time

Here is our holiday family portrait. We went Saturday to have our portraits done and although the girls behaved they were restless by the time we got in the studio. We had to wait 40 minutes so Ashley's pic and the one of the 2 girls together came out so so as. I really liked our family one except it looks like Kayla's chewing gum and she wasn't, darn spit bubble:) So tomorrow morning the picture place said I could come back for a retake and do an even exchange which I thought was very nice. I never complained before and was really nice when I called, but just wasn't as happy as usual. The morning should be interesting getting us all ready and there when they open and then Kayla has school in the afternoon. Wish me luck, because I'm sure I'm going to need!

Tip of the Week

Trying to eliminate toy clutter? Take all the toys you know your child hasn’t played with for a long time and put them in a pile. Allow your child to select 6 of those toys to keep. Also take your child with you when you donate the other toys and explain how less fortunate children will love their new toys. I did this with both my kids and even have cousins and friends come over and take toys home. Since I started this at a young age, they never cried about giving their toys away. Now when I want to get rid of old toys my girls actually help me. They also know that they need to make room for new toys for Christmas so they are more than happy to help:)

Black Friday Sale

Granted I went to sleep last night at 1:30am, but I sleep till 9:30am so why am I still so tired. I'm blaming it on all the yummy turkey I had yesterday. I'm a plain Jane kind of eater and all I ate was turkey sandwich, mashed potatoes, and biscuits, but let me tell you it was oh so good. I had to eat only a little bit because the dessert were what I was really waiting for. My mom only makes her famous chocolate chip cookies around this time of year. They are so good in fact that they are a required thing she has to make for holiday parties because everyone looks forward to them with a tall glass of milk of course.

So I got to thinking yesterday about how tons of people were going to set their alarms bright and early today to get all the deals at the stores. I have two kids so I was home in bed while my mom was out with my nicely organized list and my print out of pictures marked with coordinating numberes to the list. Hey if she's going to do me a favor the least I can do is make it as easy as possible for her. So then I thought I should offer a deal so I created a coupon code for $10 OFF any purchase over $50. I'm not going to make you decide on your holiday list in a few hours you have till November 30th to place you order. If you'd like to take advantage of this offer enter code BLACKFRIDAY during checkout.

I hope you had a Safe and Happy Holiday!

Tip of the Week

From the time your child starts solids till they reach a certain age and can do it themselves you spend so much time cutting their food into little pieces. Save time by using a pizza cutter to cut everything from chicken stripes to pancakes. You can even find platic ones that you rock back and forth and let your child do it. I found one at Walmart a few years ago for I htink around $2. It makes life so much easier!

Santa Break Through

So my youngest daughter, Ashley up until today has not been a fan of Santa Claus. Actually she doesn't like anyone dressed in character costumes and isn't a big fan of strangers in general. Normally when we're out if I'm talking to a stranger she'll be the one to tell me to stop since we aren't suppossed to talk to strangers. Ok back to Santa, we had a major break through today. We were at a craft show and Santa was there so I told the girls they could go up and say hi if they wanted. Kayla of course ran up right away to give him a hug. Then when she stepped back Ashley ran up bumping into her sister to get her out of her way ran up to him and hugged him, what where did that come from. Then the girls had a chance to sit on his lap for pics and Ashley was all smiles. Ok so the past few years me and my hubby have had to get in the Santa pics with the girls to get Ashley to not run away from him and now he's her bff. What a difference a year makes. Thank goodness I had my camera cause it was such a milestone for my little peanut;)

Tip of the Week

Who wants to spend more time than you have to at the foodstore especially with kids. You can get layout card from Courtesy Desk and make a master list of what you normally buy by the order or the isles. I keep a business card size laminated in my purse just in case I forgot my list. I can stock my shopping cart all the way filled with 2 kids and be in the car in 1 hour. I also take some snacks with me to keep the kids from trying to open all the boxes of goodies while we're there. Another way to keep kids ocupied is cut out pictures from old coupons of items you need and give each child a list of their own. That way if they¡¦re helping the trip can go that much faster.

Finally Friday

Ah it's Friday which means I get to sleep in as late as I want tomorrow or shall I say as late as my kids will let! This week has been non stop busy. We had our Halloween party at our house, then both girls had one at school, then trick-or-treating, then Kayla's dance recital was this week on top of all that. All the kids did such a great job and they all had so much fun. And of course I volunteered to be a back stage parent which meant more craziness. Why I add more to my life is beyond!
