I have been eagerly awaiting spring’s arrival. My seedlings are growing, the grass is finally turning green, the sun is shining and my boys are loving playing outside! My favorite scent during the spring is hard to describe…I think of it as sunshine in my boys’ hair. Whenever they’ve been playing out in the sun, they come inside and their hair smells amazing. It makes me think that if sunshine has a scent, it would smell like my boys’ hair. I can’t help cuddling with my boys and breathing in their sweet smell.

For my 5 year old’s birthday party, I really wanted to make him a Lego cake like this, but he wanted one with toys on top, so this is what I came up with: I made two round cakes, layered them and frosted them green for the grass. I used a Hershey’s chocolate bar for the road so the Lego’s wouldn’t get quite as dirty. The Lego set is a “Lego Juniors Digger” set which was perfect for my 5 year old to build with minimal help and he was happy as could be with the final result!

My little boy just turned 5! We celebrated with a big birthday party at the park and the theme was LEGO…so be ready for a barrage of Lego party posts :). This is the basic invitation I mailed out and passed out to kids in his pre-K class and I got the pdf from squidoo. We just typed in the info related to the party and I printed it on cardstock at Staples. I had wanted to make homemade invitations like these, but the printed ones were so simple and much less stressful!

My little boy just turned 5 last week. We celebrated with a Lego theme party and it was so much fun watching his face light up as he opened each of his presents. Just days before his birthday a package arrived with a little toy kitty inside (“Mittens”); one of The Happy’s™! I decided to give it to him as one of his gifts and at first he didn’t seem to know what to think, but when he took it out of the box, he fell in love.

I probably shouldn’t be surprised at how many wonderful scents Purex has come up with for their Crystals, and Fabulously Fresh did not disappoint in this household. This fabric softener is a limited edition scent that helps clothes smell fresh for weeks after being washed. It is safe for all loads including childrens sleepwear and will not affect the absorbency of towels like dryer sheets do.
We put our Fabulously Fresh Purex Crystals to the test after a recent camping trip. Our laundry smelled of campfire smoke and I wanted that smell gone fast! After one wash through, all of our clothes came out of the washer smelling wonderful.
