3 months

Look who fell asleep on the couch, I just adore this sweet little girl.  Makes me smile when I see her cute tiny toes sticking thru the blanket, they are just precious. Can you believe she is already 3 1/2 months only.  3 months, baby toes

Canning peaches with my daughter, #FamilyGrowing up we canned EVERY YEAR.  We canned just about everything you could think of, hundred of jars of fruit and vegetables were preserved then enjoyed all year long.  Even when I was little I had a job to do, as part of the canning.  Mom made sure all my brothers and sisters knew how to can.  I admit I grew to HATE canning as a teenager. I would have much rather been out playing with my friends.  BUT now that I am grown I am so glad my Mom took the time to teach me these skills.Canning peaches with my daughter, #FamilyI have never canned with my own kids… but this year I decided it was time to teach them what my Mom taught me.  I was worried they might give me a hard time and not like canning.  I was very happy to see they LOVED it, every step of the way they were smiling.  Skinning, slicing, putting them in jars and even processing them.   Made me happy to see how much they enjoyed it…  we only did 29 quarts and 8 pints.  But we enjoyed it and I am looking forward to canning with them again next year.Canning peaches with my daughter, #Family

SO THIS JUST HAPPENED…. (and this is why our hot tub is filled with BALLS not water). I heard Madilyn cry, went to her swing it was empty (she was sleeping). I felt a little panicked…. I follow her faint cry and find her in the BALL PIT, I only could see her little eyes. Big Brother Maveric and his buddy thought it would be fun to let her play with them. Glad I snagged her before she sunk to the bottom…. Feeling a little sick to my stomach. Maveric did not realize he did anything wrong, we as just trying to play with her…. but ACKKKKKKK freaked me out.

Wonder why I have a photo of it… I happened to be taking photos for the blog of a recipe and had the camera around my neck.  Figured I would snap a photo.  After all she was not in danger, and in 10 years we can all laugh about the day big brother put little sister in the ball pit.

Madilyn drawingMy 12 year old son (who has special needs) just adores his little sister.  He is taking an art class in school and proudly came home to show me the picture he drew of his new baby sister.  I think it is absolutely adorable, looks just like her :)

Maveric First Day of PreschoolFirst day of pre-school for this cute little boy. He is both excited and “not so excited” since he would rather be home playing. BUT he loves it once he gets to school, plus it is only 2 days a week. When I asked him what he wanted to be when he grows up he said, ” Jackson, my cousin cause he is awesome…. Or a Police Man”
OH and he took the cap off his batman back pack so his friends would know it was Maveric… Not Batman. This silly boy makes me laugh…. Happy first day of school little buddy. We love you!

Baby watching tvMy 7 year old LOVES her baby sister.  She totes her around the house like a baby doll.  She was being fussy yesterday, then her eye caught a gimps of the tv screen and she was instantly quite.  My 7 year old was AMAZED, and giggled as her little sister watched the football game with her big brother for a few minutes.  She then looked up at me and said, ” MOM, you have to put this on your blog.  This is a really good tip… Tell all the ladies if your baby is crying put them in front of the TV and they will be happy.  ALL babies should watch TV.”

I laughed and told her, I was pretty sure I would get some nasty comments if I told people to put their babies in front of the TV.  But she insisted that you all NEED to know and would love the idea.

SO…. Dear A Thrifty Mom Readers, my 7 year old wants you all to know TV is awesome for babies.

LOL…. got to love kids :)
