Christmas Decorations Up (finally)


We finally got some Christmas decorations up yesterday, and because I am having issues coming up with blog posts I thought I would post these.  Maybe it will help me get into the Christmas spirit a little better!



I just love this Little People nativity.  It is so cute and the kids can play with it and I don't loose my mind over something getting broken!

We have had this village forever and I keep thinking one day I will get rid of it or replace it and I never do.  When it is dark there are lights under the snow and the kids think it looks really cool and that is what it is all about anyway right?? (the kids and the spirit of giving of course!)


Head on over to my community and tell me what kinds of decorations you love.  I  really want to know!!  Oh yeah and it will help benefit the Children's Hospital (see post below)

I LOVE your stocking hangar. So cute. We have a fireplace and mantle, but I've never gotten enough stocking hangars to hang all the stockings, besides once they are filled they won't hang up anyway. So we just lay them out in front of the hearth. But I miss seeing those stockings hung. So pretty!

I love the stocking thing too. Really cute!

We have one of those stupid... I mean cute Christmas villages as well. Every year I have half a mind to put it out in a yard sale with .25 cents on the houses, but the boys really do enjoy it so I guess I'm stuck with it for now. :P

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
