Preschool Halloween Party

I had the opportunity to help out at Abigail's preschool party today! Always a joy to see all the kiddos and to see how well behaved they are!
At the Halloween party they enjoyed playing games and winning prizes, decorating ghosts, enjoyed a special snack, and at the end had a candy run!!!

Why? Why Not....

Exciting new to share with you!! I joined Thirty One Gifts as an Independent Consultant, why??? Why Not??? (I was at a friends house this weekend and their sons answer to the little kiddos questions was, Why Not and I just love it)

So anyhow, Why Not?
After much time and research, wondering if I should or should not, going over pros and cons, and a bit of lack of confidence? Finally, WHY NOT popped in my head! How can I fail, I can't, the only way I can is if I don't do try! 
Thirty One is a wonderful company, based on Proverbs 31~Virtuous Woman and that is what I love about the company, it's christian base! Plus the products!! There stylish and functional, plus make great gifts for anyone!! Yes guys, that includes you too!! Not only that but affordable!! I became addicted last year when I had my first party and earned many free items (a couple hundred FREE!). You can have a party and earn free products, along with great discounts and they have different monthly specials. You don't have to have a party to buy, but I recommend it so you can earn free products! Otherwise they always have great monthly specials if you like to just place an order. Anyhow I love to share with you the specials, how to earn free products, and/or become apart of this wonderful company. Also if you are in need of a fundraiser I would be more then happy to do do one for your organization. So please check out my web-site:

There's still plenty of time left in October to take advantage of this month's customer special. You can get an Organizing Utility Tote for just $7 with every $31 purchase!
If you like to host a party to get even more benefits please let me know!

If you want to receive the monthly specials, let me know and I will put you on my email list to receive the newsletter. If not, I respect your choice. Please let me know how I may help you, my goal is to make sure you receive the best deal and help you find the items you need. Thank you for your support and time!

Serious Golfer

Abigail takes the game of golf very seriously, much like her daddy. 
Maybe she'll go pro someday!!

Fun week that ended at Wurth's Farm ( Preschool Field Trip)

We had a great week, beautiful fall weather, love seeing the leaves turn to bright vibrant colors and here in Kentucky it is very beautiful with all the rolling hills and trees.  On Tuesday after Bible study we went over to a friends house and had some lunch and play-date. Wednesday we had some friends over for little playtime before story-time at the library, and then to top off the week we had our first preschool field trip!

It was a beautiful day for the preschool field trip to Wurth's Farm pumpkin patch. We rode a hayride out to the patch, had fun in the pumpkins, and headed back for some special treats. There were plenty of places to take some photos, though my sweet girl doesn't like to be in front of the camera, guess she gets that from me. But she sure had fun, I met some of her friends! I heard she has three little boy friends! Shhhhh...don't tell daddy ;)
Speaking of Daddy, he had Friday and Saturday off, so we were able to enjoy some family time. Today though he is on a train. Me and the kiddo's headed to church and lunch over at new friend's we have met through church!
Thank you God for all the blessings this week and everyday!!

Persistence, patience, & right time are what make successes!!

Since it is Fall Break here and there is a week off school and no plans for our family, we thought we take a try at potty-training again! Can I say we finally have success!!
What I have learned potty-training. That you need to be persistence, patience and lots of it, plus right timing. So really not sure if I was doing the training or Abigail was, because I also learned a few things.
We have tried potty-training in the past, all different methods. We went shopping Monday, she picked out some necessities, she wants to be a big girl and sit on big potty, not the training potty. Also what finally worked for us is no more diapers and candy corn (I am happy my daughter loves candy-corn, takes after her mama)! Plus books and singing lots of songs. Can we all sing together, BINGO, Itsy-Bitsy Spider, Three Little Kittens, Twinkle-Twinkle, If Your Happy and You Know It... and we are HAPPY, we are doing potty dances and high-fives!!
So PROUD of my little girl!! Now the agreement in our house is I potty-train Ab, Ryan gets to potty-train Aidan, good luck babe!! :)

Aidan 6 Month Old

Today little man Aidan turned 6 months!!! He has grown so much in such a short time. He is so into jumping and working on sitting up by himself. The ladies in the nursery at MOPS and Church just love him, they say he is such a happy sweet baby. Yes he is!! He loves to smile and watch his sister! I know he can't wait to be running around with her. Tomorrow is his six month check up.

This week is Fall Break, so all the schools are closed for the week. So we are attempting potty training again, since we do not need to be anywhere this week, we are trying it without diapers all day long. So far we are having more successes, yay Abigail!! It is a challenge and takes lots of patience, but we are determined to keep practicing. Practice makes perfect! :)
