Teeball has officially begun (is that a word?)  I actually took these photos on Tuesday because that was supposed to be the first game.  But as many of you know it was SNOWED out.  I had one disappointed little five year old on my hands.  We managed to get over that little obstacle and moved on to the game on Thursday.  This was just as I remembered from last year.  A lot of 4 and 5 year olds tackling and running and crying if they did not get the ball as many times as they thought necessary to be successful.  The only difference is that I am not 8 1/2 months pregnant but I am the coach.  Sucker I can hear you all saying but it was kind of fun and I know that our team is much more organized than last year.  
This weekend we journeyed far and wide and I forgot the camera so there are no photos to prove it.  We started at Kindergarten Orientation on Friday then went to Gunnison overnight for a Close To My Heart workshop, then back to Price for more box emptying and throwing away of grandmas memories.  All in all I think it was a successful trip.  Dalton cried a lot especially when we had to leave grandpa and cousins behind.  He really wanted to help grandpa with the pool.  He wasn't even interested in coming home for teeball tomorrow.  It had been a long day.  So this was long and boring but I think every one is caught up.  More picture soon I hope.


You are my hero, coach! Glad you had a good weekend.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

 I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned

Yes they are!

Question of the day well actually question of my life time as a mother.... "Are they all yours by birth?"  Um yes, yes they are.  I think they look like me don't you?  Thanks to my friend Peter Loosli for the great photo. I am linking up with Really Are you Serious today for her Mommy and me Monday.  This is an older post so if you want to see what we are up to today click here .
