Christmas Spirit

I have been struggling to get the spirit of Christmas this year. Not sure why probably just too much going on but my sister asked me to help her with the accompaniment of this song and I had never heard it. So I found it on youtube and it made me cry so I thought I would share it with all of you!

I love this song; it's one of my favorites :)

I think everyone is the same this year! We're usually doing lots and are decked out and this year, well... just not feeling it really! Nice Song!

It has taken a little more for me this year but I think it's because I started later than usual. I think I've caught that spirit now. Can't say that I've ever heard this song but it is beautiful!

It's very hard for me to get into the groove this time of year being in FL. Our family is back home in NY and I struggle with being so far. Beautiful song. Stay strong. The spirit will come sooner than later. How do I follow...:) xoxo

We're just now getting in the spirit, too. But it won't really feel like Christmas until everyone is home under one roof...Listen, I also wanted to thank you soooooooo much for stop­ping by on my Spe­cial SITS Day. It’s taken me a while to get back, but I hope to see you around the blo­gos­phere again soon!

I am struggling to get into the spirit of Christmas this year also. I don't know if it is because my children aren't into it so much now that they are older or what.. I feel like the Grinch. If you find it will you send some my way pretty please?
Her Christmas CD has been one of my favorites for years...beautiful song!

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.....

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).

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
