One Word to Describe your Family in 2019

Image
My son was given an art assignment to pick one word to describe his families 2019 year.   He chose "GOD."   This makes me super happy!   It truly is what my family is doing each day!  Making God the center of our family is vital and this was a pat on the back for me knowing we are doing it!  
How would you describe your 2019 year?

Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes

Image
The tradition continues with pancakes to celebrate Jesus birth!   
This year I went with a sheet cake for pancakes!   This allowed us three different types of pancakes.   1. Peanut butter and banana 2. Blueberry and cream cheese 3. Chocolate Chip
I think Blueberry was the overall winner!   My bananas needed to be a bit sweeter so that type didn't have much flavor.  

Oh Candle Light Service and Christmas Jammies!

Image
There is something about Christmas pajamas and cuddles that I LOVE!   I know Christmas pajamas can get pricey so I was excited in my late shopping time to find these two at Gordmans the Saturday before Christmas!   They were also a great price!  

Do you go to a Candle Light Service?   We have one each Christmas Eve and singing with the candle light sure makes it feel more like Christmas!  

You make my life MERRY and BRIGHT

Easiest Christmas card ever!  Did this with several different age groups!   It is easy, not to messy, and fun!   Plus some kids could make more then one to send more love to their family!

How to make the most of your "me time" when your child is at kindergarten

As a parent with a toddler, you no doubt gain some relief when your child goes to kindergarten. Those few hours alone allow you to enjoy some much needed, not to mention deserved, "me time". While your child enjoys playing with other children, playing games and generally being creative, you can finally focus on yourself and do something that you want to do.

Being a parent is stressful regardless of your children's age, but it is generally accepted as being harder with toddlers. If you had trouble conceiving and had to get some help from a fertility clinic such as First Fertility, you will have undergone a great deal of stress before your child was even born. If you fit into this category, then you, especially, will need to take some time out and recharge your batteries. You will find that this is not only beneficial for you but also your family, so don't feel that you are being selfish.

The Benefits Of Organic Baby Products

The joy that comes with the arrival of a newborn in the family is boundless. Better still, becoming a mom for the first time. As parenthood begins to roll out, you realize that there’s quite a lot to be done to make the little one as comfortable as possible.

Apart from keeping the baby’s hunger pangs on the check, you’ve got to think about what they’ll put on, and whether it’s safe on their delicate skin. And of course, skin rash is the last thing you’d want to see on the little one’s skin. So, you better get it right when it comes to their clothes.

The safest clothes for a baby are usually ones made from organic fabrics such as cotton.

Here’s why you should consider organic children's clothes for your little one.
