Useful Tips

Corona Ointment
This ointment works wonders. It healed my kiddos diaper rash and it's healed my cracked hands. I even put it on burns and scrapes. Good stuff!!
Oh, yeah, it's even useful for the horses!

Tuff Stuff (carpet cleaner)
I have so many stains to deal with, (like all moms) ,that I started using it on stains that my kids get on all their clothes.  It works for me!  It's not expensive stuff and it can get even some of the worst stains out.  It works wonders on your carpet too!

Country Living

And it begins...... I grew up living in a small town, by a big city. I always wanted to live in the country and got my wish when I married my husband. My dreams of living in the country where not what I expected, but now appreciate it. My list of not what to expect is something like this:
Frozen Pipes
Sand Storms
Black Widows
Well Water
Septic Tanks

My list of loves:
the little cabin

Ponytails and Cowlicks

My twins are my inspiration for ponytails and cowlicks. They are country kids trying to fit into this fast pace world. Welcome to us!

The Ponytail and the Cowlick were great today.  Cowlick decieded it was time to let his twin, the Ponytail, join in on his massive amount of legos.  She passed the test.  She can build just about anything and has kept her place in the house.  Amen!!  No, new brother is needed.  Why is it that such small objects  hurt so bad when you step on them in the dead of the night?

The Wall
Cowlick was up early this morning building up is kingdom of Legos.  He was running to show his sister what he created and BAM!  He hit the wall and busted his lip.  Mom he whispered, "Why did you put the wall there and can we get ride of it?" Sorry, Cowlick it gets to stay!
