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.

Butterfly Mobile

When I was expecting my boys, we were in school and had a very small income. I spent as little as possible and we relied mostly on gifts or hand-me-downs from family and friends. Suffice it to say, decor was basically non-existent for my boys.

This time, however, I have loved decorating a nursery for our baby girl! The room she is in was already painted a sage green and I knew I wanted lilac/purple butterflies as the accent. My husband declared that purple wasn't girly enough and pink needed to be involved, so we ended up with purple and pink, and I love how her little corner of our home has turned out.

After searching for a mobile that fit the style of the nursery and not finding one, I decided to make a mobile for our daughter and here it is:
DIY Butterfly Mobile
I used the butterfly felt soft toy pattern at Sew Sweet to make the butterflies. The only things I did different than she did, was to stuff the wings so they wouldn't flop down while hanging, and I sewed circles/hearts onto the wings. This was a great project for me while pregnant because it kept my hand busy while I was sitting/resting (which I had to do a lot!).

I sewed some purple ribbon to the backs of the butterflies and glued them to the inside hoop of an embroidery hoop I bought at Walmart. I glued more ribbon to the hoop and hung it from a hook. Pin It
