Merry SITSmas!

Some pictures from our annual family Christmas party.  The kids all dressed up and acted out the nativity while my dad read from the scriptures.  It was pretty cute.  Dalton kept saying "Mom, I have a towel on my head!"

Brylin really got into the role as Mary and the shepherds and wise men were all about the photo ops!!

I recently joined up with the wonderful bloggers over at SITS.  It is a great blogging sitsahood that encourages comments and so much more!  The reason for the post today is so we save money on stamps but still get cyber Christmas cards.  Sound interesting??  Well then head on over and check them out.  And everyone have a very Merry SITSmas!

I love the name Dalton. That was my maiden name and I have thought about it as a first name for a child!!

This is the cutest idea... I may have to borrow it for all of my nephews and nieces at Christmas (I have 12)

How sweet they are! My family tries this every year and no one wants to do. It usually involves crying, bribing, screaming, etc. My mom always tries to use an elastic to keep the towel, what? I like the bandana idea much better.

This looks like fun! You must have enough kids between you all to fill all the parts. Do you get any squabbling over who gets to be who?

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

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
