It's Beginning to look a lot like....



a mess really.  But here are some shots of me and the kids getting into the Christmas spirit.  Of course there was Christmas music blaring in the background and lots of helping to unload the Christmas bins.  But the best part of this year is that we sprung for a real tree.  I love real Christmas trees it just gets me into the mood for Christmas.  I love everything about them .  The smell, the mess, the huge sagging bows.  We always had real trees when I was little in fact we used to cut our own. I have such great memories of cutting Christmas trees and fire wood.  Maybe one day my kids will get to have those memories as well.





For now the memory of walking through the lot at Lowe's will have to suffice.haha!!

How fun, I always wanted a real tree but not the mess.

You'll have to a post a picture of it all decorated!

I think a count down would stress me out...more packing than I have done and no christmas cards in the mail yet. Time, time, time goes tooo fast. We'll be glad to be settled and soon have our own house again too. And, living by our family in the beautiful state of Utah, how nice will it be?

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
