Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all my fans a happy Mother's Day :O) we celebrated yesterday by building planter boxes and lowes. Then we went out and bought the newest car we ever have. It is sure to greatly improve our camping fun!
My husband still thinks it is his ;o)
I also got to buy a new car seat. You know you would really think this would be a fun and easy task.lol However my daughter is 4 years old now and in the 97th percentile for her height, however she only weighs 33 pounds. In the state of Texas she MUST be in a 5 point harness still. Until recently there was only 2 carseats that were tall enough to support her, the Graco Nautilus and the Evenflo Maestro, both GREAT car seats by the way. Yesterday the surrounding stores were out though and well she would have been so mad if she couldn't ride home in the new Jeep with daddy! So after 30 minutes of saying angry words I removed her car seat from my truck and put it in daddy's :OP Then I went on a car seat hunt. Mommy went on a car seat mission, and after measuring probably 20 different seats the store associate told me about a new one they just got in to sell. That is when I found out about a new car seat the stores just stared carrying the Safety 1st Guide 65 Sport Convertible Car Seat. I held my breath praying not to have to remove the car seat from the Jeep.lol Sure enough it is big enough :O) and was only $78. Bad news is that it is not a booster and goes only to 65 pounds. But with 3 inches of torso growth left, I'm not to worried.
Best part is it is bright pink and black
Give yourself piece of mind this mother's day that you are doing everything to project your child in the car. Check your state laws as they are all different at http://www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/childsafety_laws.html but remember those are just guidelines :O) I always recommend using a car seat until your child cannot properly fit in one. You can never be to safe.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless. She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the
