My advent calendar

As the month of December approaches seems like faster then I can blink my eyes. I have decided that instead of buying the kids those chocolate advent calendars that seem to stay on top of the counter or the fridge and we forget to eat them and We eventually end up eating 3 or 4 of those little chocolates on one day. So this year I am making an advent calendar and each envelope has a task or activity to do each day of the month. Some are just simple things like decorate sugar cookies, or wrap presents together, and some are write a Christmas card to a soldier, do the operation shoebox to understand that Christmas is about giving, I also included to read the true story of the true meaning of Christmas so they understand that santa isn'[t what the true meaning of Christmas is. I really think this will be fun to do as a family and spend time with each other. I think that the kids will really enjoy these activities. These envelopes took a little bit of time to make but I did each and everyone of them by hand so I hope that they hold up until then. We shall see though.

lets see a lot has gone on since I last blogged. Madisyn came home with lice and it turned into an epidemic, it was horrible. I felt like the worst person in the world and felt it was my fault that she had gotten it, but it wasn't. I never had to deal with these annoying and nasty bugs before so we had an adventure ahead of us. She was scratching her head and her hair was sticking up everywhere from scratching so I checked and of course to my horror there was a bug running around on her head. EWW I thought I looked at Greg and whispered "she has lice" so I ran too Albertsons, got the box of RID and came home. We put it on her head and combed out bugs for about 4 1/2 hours. And to our nightmare the RID didn't work at all, so we researched and researched to figure out what else we could do to get rid of this crap. Come to find out that we had everything already in the house vinegar and tons of white conditioner, lice comb, and shower caps and tons and tons of laundry to wash. It was overwhelming everyday combing out bugs that we missed and eggs on top of eggs I was so tired of seeing more eggs day after day would this ever end after 3 weeks of this I was so ready to call the lice professionals to come into our home treat all of our heads and clean our house. I was ready to pay for this to be gone and I didn't care how much it was going to cost. I was done. Have you ever read what is in the ingredients in the rid no wonder why it will burn your head if you leave it on too long. We will never ever use that stuff again. The vinegar and conditioner worked wonders. We had another episode of the nasty bugs again not to long ago but we think we caught it early. We did the vinegar and conditioner treatment again and combed out eggs and tons of laundry again. We have overcame the overwhelming epidemic that was set forth in front of us. Madisyn lost her first tooth and the tooth fairy came while she was sleeping and left her 1.00 underneath her pillow, it was all glittery and sparkled.

Goodbye 2013, hello 2014

Its 2014 we made it :) yay! Everyone makes new years resolutions and it usually begins with I want to go on a diet or loose weight, be healthier. Usually mine does too, that's pretty much every year that I make those same new years resolutions. But this year is going to be a different resolution, I have made the decision to not make that same resolution because it never works I usually fall off after a month of doing it and its not reality. This year my new years resolution is to be me and not give in too things that don't make me happy and to let go of the past. Learn to deal with things and people who have hurt me in the past, and to recognize that not everyone is going to hurt me and to be able to let people in again. I plan to check into and start going back to school to better the life of my children and mine,to go up not down. I am so ready for a new and positive outlook in this year 2014. I am not going to make a list of everything that I want to change about myself but just start with the little things and see what happens. I may succeed in all these goals that I have set for myself maybe not but at least there something that will set me in the right path of new beginnings and new positive outlooks of people and things that I require from myself. I hope that I have many adventures this year and things that I will learn from. I really want to be inspired this year to do things that I have always wanted to do but never had the confidence to do them. So this year I will try to work on that whole aspect as well. Welcome to my new adventure and life lessons.
