Plays well with others

Of course it helps that he's willing to play HER kind of games! He'll hate me for it someday but he was so cute and WANTED to dress up with sissy. What do you do?!

Meshayla made most of the cars, the train and the airplane for his cake - Great job Shay!

Both Tiara's and the jewelry on this cake are edible.

Name that rash

Anyone want to play "Name that Rash"?! This kid has never had a rash or any sort on his face or eczema problems or food reactions so I'm kind of stumped with this one! It's a "pimply" sort of rash. I'm wondering if we picked something up while we were at the Children's Hospital in Denver, although we were only in the ENT area and he barely had time in the waiting area to play with any toys... He seems to be feeling fine otherwise. Any ideas?!

Handmade Gift

It's your lucky day!!!

Lucky you! The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!

2- What I create will be just for you.

3- It'll be done this year. (might be a little while)

4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be something for your scrapbook, or something I sew. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

So....who will be the first 5 people?????

What DO stay at home mom's DO all day?!

And why don't they have time for other things? This is the best explanation I've ever seen about what we "do" all day!

Riches to Rags

I saw this article this morning in my inbox and found it very interesting. I thought I'd share for those of you having a hard time in this economy! Read the whole article here

My choice to be a stay-at-home mom gives me immense pride. But it does not give me immense piles of money with which to buy every little item that might seem like a necessity at the time. Wipes warmer anyone? Even though our household income had been cut in half, we were used to living a certain way. We did not take charge of our finances—we had other things to attend to. After a long day of nursing, laundry, playing, and cleaning (okay, I'm lying about the cleaning), we didn't want to look our checkbook in the face and accept that we probably couldn't afford to order in.

To make matters worse, my husband works freelance, and his monthly income is never guaranteed. He doesn't get benefits like health care and a 401K. As with most people working freelance, he lives by feast or famine. Now add to this mix the current economic climate. For us, these circumstances led to some pretty serious credit card debt. I cannot blame the economy for most of this. In fact, you could say that the economy is what finally brought the situation to our attention.
