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 :)

White water rafting with Johann

Johann has really enjoyed getting to know the boys in our church while he has been here.  They have become good friends.  This week Johann has gone white water rafting with them down the Payette river as well as going on an over night back pack trip, up near Lucky Peak Dam.  We miss him like crazy while he is gone, but love that he is able to experience these things with kids his own age….. and lets face it you will NEVER find me on a raft. So it is good he found a bunch of boys to take him down the river lol.

First set of pigtails, baby Madilyn

Her hair was long enough to put into a little ponytail the day she was born…. but yesterday was the FIRST day we put in a set of Pigtails. She looked absolutely adorable. My baby is growing up TOO fast.  I just  love her snuggles.

Mustache in the woods, Fun family reunion ideas #FamilyReunion, #NatureWalk, #Mustache

We are in McCall Idaho for a Family Reunion with my husbands side of the family.  The “old people” went to go golfing, but the kids and I went to go on a nature walk with Granny and Papa.  The kids had a blast exploring the forest. Some of the fun things the kids found were sticks, rocks, pine cones, wild flowers and moss on the trees.  We made “Moss Mustaches” which the girls thought were  super silly.   Nature walks are a great way for kids to learn about there surroundings and the things that grow and live  in the forest.
