Top Ten Christmas Decorations From My Childhood

This is what greeted the kids Christmas morning last year.  When I think about Christmas decorations from my childhood, certain images are recalled almost immediately. Today, I want to take you down memory lane. 1) Pipe Cleaner Candy Canes We made pipe cleaner candy canes by twisting a red and a while pipe cleaner together. Then we curved a hook in it and hung it on the tree. Sometimes we took one pipe cleaner and made a candy cane using Tri beads in Christmas colors (that would be red, green, and white for us). 2) Paper Snowflakes Paper snowflakes have …

The Quest For Eggless Muffins

I am supposed to make muffins for breakfast this morning – according to my new menu plan – and I don’t have a suitable recipe. I have a great recipe for muffins which don’t have any eggs or dairy, but they have flax (which I am out of). So, I set out again in search of recipes for eggless muffins. When I have searched for recipes before without any egg or dairy (Hosanna’s allergies), I have  looked for vegan recipes. Sometimes vegan recipes use weird ingredients (no offense to any vegans reading), so today, I decided to search for eggless …

Signs Of Spring

In a recent post, I mentioned that the weather has been simply beautiful. Earlier this week we went for a walk around our neighborhood looking for signs of spring. Check out what we found. Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… Blossoms… and more blossoms. Zion and Hosanna enjoying snacks as we go on our walk to look for signs of spring. Malachi looking cool in his sunglasses. All the boys love these glasses. Smiling Moses in the wind. Elisha ready for our walk. Elisha and Malachi playing in the grass. Moses, Elisha, and Malachi playing at the park. …

A Trip To The Park

We have been missing in action this week because the weather has been AMAZING! It feels like spring already. It was windy out, but the weather was beautiful. Zion and Hosanna riding in their buggy. Elisha at the top of the play equipment. Elisha doing the monkey bars. He is incredible! Moses, looking very serious. Moses being goofy. Malachi. I wonder what he is looking at? Malachi and his smirky smile. So cute. Malachi having fun. Moses and Malachi climbing and having fun. Moses and Malachi climbing and having fun. We visited two parks close by to us on this …

Cute Pictures From The Camera

While looking for the photos of My Homeschool Binder, I found some cute pictures to share. Here is Malachi patiently waiting for us to start our Read Aloud. Here is Zion looking really sleepy. Here is Hosanna posing for the camera and chewing a Fisher Price knight.

Rearranging The House

Sleepless in our house! We haven’t been getting much sleep at our house since the twins were born. In the beginning it was the whole breastfeed, supplement, pump, and begin again ordeal (and you had to do that double time). We would just get them both settled and make a quick potty trip, grab something to eat or drink, and then it was time to begin the whole show over again. I turned 36 somewhere during the first 2 weeks of the twins’ life and I vaguely remember it – okay, maybe not. Sleep was non-existent or fleeting at best. …

Organizing The Shoe Box and Books

Do you remember recently when I mentioned our shoe box? It could also be known as the office. Well, we did a bit of rearranging. We moved all of the miscellaneous books from the hall into the office and moved all the kids books into the hall. The books in the hall were more appropriate for mommies and daddies. I don’t think my boys really need to have access to The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding or my DK Pregnancy and Childbirth textbook. I also don’t think they have much use for His Needs, Her Needs or How to Win Friends …
