I don't know about you guys, but it gets harder and harder to send lunch in for Broxton.  He is NOT a picky eater at home (for the most part, although he is set in his ways about some things)  but you send him to school and it is crazy.  Last year, his teacher said he never really ate the lunch if we let him buy it, so we tried to send it in, just to know what he ate and what he didn't.  You know, because I could see what was returned each day.  This year, same problem.  He says that the food doesn't taste as good at school as it does at home, but truth be told, my little social butterfly just likes talking more than eating and that is our main issue.  When I was given the chance to try out a new "super food…

Time to get the clothes ready, the camera charged and your energy saved up...  Why?  Just because the holidays are here!   October rushed by and Halloween came and went super fast.  Poor ol' Thanksgiving seems to get the shaft, as it goes from Halloween to Christmas before you know it.  Some stores almost seem to bypass Halloween too!  Anyways, a bit ago, we were invited out to Northpoint Mall to check out the Adventure to Santa Experience.  Let me tell you, an experience it is!!!!
I was thinking it was going to be like the other mall Santa's where you see Santa, but with a little extra, you know... the whole ADVENTURE. What I did not know was that it wasn't just a LITTLE one, it was a full out journey!!!!   I don&…

Since having Broxton, I try to be the best mom I can be.  I try to do thing that will be great memories and I am trying to start cute traditions with him.  When he started preschool, we started reindeer food for the reindeer outside  (oats and colored sugar.)  He makes cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.  I get PJ's for all the boys and they wear them on Christmas Eve (of course we get pictures!)
A couple years ago we started a tradition of me wrapping several books and each night we grab one from the stack to read before bed.  ***  Please note, It DOES NOT have to be all new books! I normally mix in a few new books with a few old books he already has.  Another thing?  I have a few Christmas themed books mixed in with ot…

Want me to let you in on a little secret??
I have not had a hair cut / style in I do not know how long.  I know it was before I knew I was having Savannah, but I do not know exactly when it was.  Most days, my hair just gets thrown back in a pony tail, but at times I do flatten it or at least try to do something to it.  I have been lucky to have been sent the Tea Tree Collection from Paul Mitchell and let me tell you, it is like a special treat for this new mama!   The scent, the feel, amazing!   I know I said I don't do anything with my hair, but you want to know why I try and take care of it?  I grow it out and donate it.  To me, it is just hair... To others it is so much more.  That is one way I try and give back, by …

With the Christmas Holidays getting closer and closer, you know that means I am getting my list of books ready for us to do our Countdown to Christmas!  This year, we are adding the latest from the Pout Pout Fish Series.  it is called The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish and it follows Mr. Fish as he tries to find the best gift for all of his friends.
I will be honest and tell you that I did not know that the Pout-Pout Fish was a series of books.  We fell in love with the Pout-Pout Fish in the Big Big Dark. When I saw this book, I knew we wanted it, but I did not know there were others too!  Now, I want to add all of them to our home library!

In The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Christmas, we see Mr. Fish tr…
