Homemade Christmas Gift - Felt Stockings

Growing up I absolutely loved opening my stocking first thing Christmas morning. Now that I am grown up I don't have that joyful experience anymore. So when I think of all the other grown ups in my family that don't get stockings it makes you want to bring back that joy. My daughter and I took the time to make some loved ones felt stockings. A very simple gift that you can fill with pretty much anything, and the best part is that you get to give that family member some unique artwork as well. Felt Stocking Template Simply print out the template I have provided above and use it to cut out the pieces of felt. You will need two pieces to create a full stocking and then any embellishments your heart desires. My plan for one of my family members is to fill her new stocking with some treats that she is now forced to enjoy. Becoming gluten free can be a hard adjustment in anyone's life but if you want to see how unbelievably ridiculous the prices are your

Monopoly Junior #GameNight

Monopoly Junior is an excellent game for little ones. Today I am fighting off a nasty cold and my kids are happily enjoying their Monopoly game while mommy gets some rest. Monopoly Jr. is perfect for teaching young ones the skills needed for all board games, like patience, sharing, and being a good sport.  The game pieces are very whimsical and delightful. There is a small car, a boat, a kitty, and a puppy, all in a very cartoonish format to satisfy any child. It is for 2-4 players over the age of 5. My daughter has enjoyed playing even though she is only 4 she can have just as much fun racing around the board by simply rolling the dice and counting the spaces.  Hasbro makes so many amazing games I can't wait to watch my kids grow to enjoy them all just like I did. These games make such amazing Christmas and birthday presents and really help to bring the family together! Plan your own Hasbro family #GameNight! I received the product(s) complimentary to test and

Fall Photos & Winter Prep

 I just wanted to share some of my wonderful fall photos with everyone before the snow hits and the winter photos begin. It's time to get outside and rake the leaves and prepare for a cold winter. How do you prepare for cold winters? As soon as the temperature drops I think of ways to keep my home warm to keep my heating costs down. Here is what I do to winterize my house: Insulate vents and other drafty places Caulk windows and doors Seal windows with poly  Install thicker curtains Install weather stripping Uninstall outside hose & turn off water to that tap Get some area rugs if your floors are bare like mine Get everyone slippers Make sure everyone has a variety of sweaters, robes, and blankets That's about it. Right now I am going to clean up my yard and get my chicken run winterized. Have a great day!
