First Day of Kindergarten

Okay so really it was the second day of Kindergarten, because for the second year in a row I have completely forgotten my camera on the first day of school. Hello! I remembered it for first grade what is it about K that makes me forget. (The actual first day was Tuesday but I am a little slow posting!)

Peyton and Dalton LOVE riding the bus it is the highlight of school attendance as far as they are concerned. I couldn't help snapping this great shot of them walking to school. Of course if you could have witnessed this you would have seen my two year old dragging on my leg screaming "Carry me! Carry me!" I am sure that I provide comedy for the entire neighborhood even at 8 am!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! How fun to come from BlogFrog!
Beautiful children! Those pictures bring back memories of my school days and posing in front of our house for pictures. I did not enjoy it. :)

She looks gorgeous of course! She was more than ready to go, I'm sure. I'm glad I'm not the only mom who forgets things. Yesterday I realized I forgot to send Dallin to scouts, again! I'm not sure how to remember everything. Let me know if you figure it out.

What a cute kindergartener! Tell her I am sorry I didn't have her over yesterday. It was definately one of those days. I came home, put my kids down for quiet time and next think I knew I was waking up almost two hours later. I hope you didn't see my lack of patience or tiredness when we saw you at the store.

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 longer effective due to …

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..... You…

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

Supplies:
2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
