Footprint Ghost Sign

This time with my baby girl is going by WAY TOO FAST! I'm trying to just enjoy every stage but they pass all too soon. I wanted a way to preserve this time with her (and, of course, my boys) so I made this footprint ghost sign that I can pull out every Halloween...

I just sanded a random piece of wood we had in our house. Then I painted it black. I covered each of my children's feet with white paint and put their footprints on the board. Then I took some more white paint and filled in where their arches were and touched up any other spots. After the white paint was dry, I painted on ghost faces and added "Boo!" and "2014" in orange. To preserve it, I will spray it with a paint sealer.

All-in-all a simple project that took me one afternoon to complete, but it's something I will enjoy for years to come!

Lego Party: Pin the Head on Lego Man!

This post has been months in the coming, but I couldn’t NOT include this fun classic game in our Lego party theme…Pin the Head on LEGO Man! This was a very popular activity at my 5 year old’s birthday party and the kids got quite involved…Pin the head to the Lego man @ whatilivefor.net

General Conference Bingo

Every six months, our church-The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints- has a broadcast called General Conference where we get to hear from the leaders of our church. We are able to watch it online and my boys get very excited for these weekends (the first weekend of April & October). To help them get involved and listen, we had a lot of success playing General Conference Bingo.General Conference Bingo

All I did was draw a Bingo chart and put common words or phrases in each square. I thought my 5 year old would be bored or have a rough time, but both of my boys loved it and did such a good job filling out their Bingo charts! The words I used were: Jesus, Church, Prophet, Pray, Temple, God, Heavenly Father, Christ, Joseph Smith, Love, Book of Mormon, Thomas S Monson, Disciple, Angels, Scriptures, Commandments, Apostles, and Believe.

When they heard their key words, they got to put a candy on that square, and when they got a Bingo, they got to eat those candies. General Conference Bingo

We will be watching General Conference this weekend on BYU TV at 10:00 AM MST, 2:00 PM MST on Saturday and Sunday!

Snuggle your little ones with Huggies

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Huggies & Target. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Prior to July, my husband and I had been out of the diaper game for a few years. It was a lovely break, and now that I am back into full-on diaper mode with our daughter, it's nice to feel a bit more experienced this time around. With my oldest, I used to have to take his socks off at each diaper change because he would inevitably kick the dirty diaper and require new socks as well. Now, I feel confident in leaving baby girl's socks on throughout the diaper change without her kicking the dirty diaper.
