The Things That Matter Most....

As promised here is my post about the things that matter most. Lucky for me; I spent the past several days in the land of no cell phone, internet, or any other technology. This gave me the clarity I needed to work this post out.

If you read this blog at all you must already realize that my kiddos are certainly one of THE most important things to me but it goes beyond that. Family, the unit, the togetherness, the suffering at times, the love and respect, and the eternal aspect of it all. These are the things that matter the very most to me. I know my family loves me and they know that I love them. We stick together through all sorts of joy and pain and sorrow. We must; we know the ultimate reward for doing so and we all want to achieve that greatness.

At times we might be a little dysfunctional. (Sorry I stole this from you Brindley)

But Grandpa and Grandma (on both sides) have been great examples to me of how to keep a family together.

This is only a few of us. We were a little scattered one sibling was on the way, one in Texas cheering on BYU with his wife and kids , and one in Logan furthering his work education with his wife and kids too. (We missed you all!!)
Thanks to my mom and dad for being great examples and supporting us through all we have been through!

Now your turn. Tell me what matters most to you or how your family is a great example for you. CLICK HERE, to go to my forum and discuss it there. Share the link on your blog or twitter or facebook.

I agree, family is so important. Your grandparents look like great people. Family reunions are the BEST!

This is my first visit to your blog. I love your scrapbooking pages. Wish I was more of a scrapbooker. I think if I had your creative skills, I would be one. Very fun pages.

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

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 .

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
