Our New Furry Friend

Yesterday morning I was woken up by a text message from my husband. It was a picture of the back of a puppy's head.lol Now none of you really know my husband I don't talk about him a a lot. This is very unlike him to do though. so I give him a call and ask what the text was about. Apparently when him and the guys arrived at work they heard a sound that was well, not so pleasant. They thought that certainly something had been hit by a car and was dying. So the search around to make sure that there is not something suffering needlessly (keep in mind it is 6am and PITCH BLACK!) Finally they found the cause of the sound. A little terrier cross, covered in ticks and riddled with pokies in his feet.  They pick him up and pick all the pokies out of his feet, get him a bowl of food and water(they have a shop dog) and from that second on he was attached to my husbands feet.lol Now my husband loves dogs don't get me wrong, but we already have 3 dogs and 2 cats haha he had SWORE there would be no more pet till at least the two biggest dogs passed on. When I picked up that phone I knew that had changed, and when I got to pick up the puppy (7:30am) he had already been named. So I would like to introduce Sparky to my blogging family :O)

What a sweet puppy! The poor thing.. I'm so glad the men saved him, and that you gave him a good home.

It must have been a good day for adopting pets. We took in a new cat yesterday. Someone had abandoned him. :*(

Integrating a new cat is a bit of a challenge, but he sure made himself at home, and is very sweet with out boys.

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 like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

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.
