Shnoozles, Your Bedtime Friend.


If you have children you know what a struggle bedtimes can sometimes be. A great bedtime routine in important but sometimes they still feel afraid to go to sleep at night. Recently I was given the opportunity to review a soft an cuddly critter called a Shnoozle. Shu-Shu is a furry brown critter who is always ready to sleep. I love the original idea for their eyelids. When bedtime comes you can lower their eye lids and with the cute little rhyme book your child can help Shu-Shu go to bed as they get ready to close their eyes.When I first found out I would be doing this review I thought for sure this would come in handy most for my 5 year old. Her room is a little off from us so she gets a little afraid. My son LOVES being tucked in at night but for some reason lately is afraid to close his eyes. So I thought huh even though he is 8 maybe he would love a furry little friend to help him feel safe. He doesn't read very well yet so we read the story together, he closed his Shnoozles eyes and he tucked in his new friend. In the morning I woke up to find him squeezing him tight :) it was so cute I couldn't resist but to take a picture. It has been about a week now and he almost has the story memorized! He loves "waking" Shu-Shu up in the morning before school and as soon as he gets home he picks him up to play. I never in a million years thought he would be so attached to a stuffed creature the way he is.
Now on to what mommy loves the most, besides of course the joy I see in my sons face. I was a little concerned about the value before I received it at $24.99 a piece but I didn't realize how big he was until we got him. At 14" high and full of fluff he is well worth the money. The quality is great and I haven't noticed a single stitch out of place that could cause a hole. I love that it doesn't light up or make sounds, instead it encourages sleep through reading! As I mention my son really struggles with reading so anything he LOVES to read is a great step for us. The makers of Shnoozles want to help one of our lucky readers sleep a little better at night.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

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.
