Donkeys, Penguins and Give Me Your Best Shot by Proxy

My girls had their dance concert last Friday.  The theme was "All Creatures Great and Small".  It was a fantastic concert.  I was lucky enough to have my friend Wendy join us.  She brought her camera and took these fantastic pictures for us.
I know they look like little burglars but they are really groundhogs.  The whole dance was their impressions of groundhogs.  They imitated the digging and in this part they are showing how they pop up out of their holes.
Next came the penguins.  They stole the show of course don't the littlest ones always steal the show?
I love this dance for my girls because there is no competition.  It is interpretive/creative dance for young girls.  Miss Diane dances with the youngest classes so they are not scared.  She encourages them to be themselves and helps them to gain a positive body image.  There is no weight limit or dieting.  I LOVE that as this is what I am trying to teach my girls each day.
The next dance was the Eyeore or Donkey dance.


Oh no my tail is gone!  It was so much fun I can't wait for dance next year.

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

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
