Well almost, just a few more days and it will be Thanksgiving! I had to share this cute little craft using my toddler’s hand prints, he is great when it comes to crafts like this…mostly becuase he loves getting his hands painted, lol

(sorry about the orientation, I can’t seem to get the picture to flip 😦 )

My Attempt at My 2 year Olds Pictures October 8, 2012

So my youngest turned two in September, YAY! But I forgot to have his 2 year old pictures done. Now usually I’m not that forgetful but lately this momma has had a lot on her plate, and honestly I was kind of dreading taking him to a professional studio, they always take like a million pictures, ok, I’m exaggerating a little, but they take so many, and they all look ADORABLE! I get wrangled into buying over $200 in portraits, and I honestly don’t have that many family members to mail them to, so they sit in a drawer…forever…

This year I figured I’d attempt to take them on my own, I mean hey, I have a nice enough camera, and I’ve seen enough family and baby portrait pictures to choke a horse. So off to the park I went with my 2 kids in tow, my camera, a few photo props, and an ‘irrational sense of optimissim’ .  Well I should have known that 2 hyper children and a park were a receipe for disaster, the oldest child would not sit still no matter how much I tried to bribe him, and they youngest (whom I really needed to sit still the most) wanted to copy his older brother and run amuck at the park. I ended up getting a few good shots in and thank heaven for photoshop editing, lol. And here were a few of the finish products…

Using Baking Soda to clean your stove? October 4, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — adventuresofamotherof2 @ 11:25 am

So i’ve been seeing this “Pin” on Pinterest (the most AWESOME Site ever!) and decided to try it since I hate cleaning my glass top stove and everyone says the method of using baking soda is so great and easy….well…

 

PROS- It is a cheap method (i hate paying a high cost for cleaning supplies)

It does work well, just not as “Amazing” as everyone says

CONS-  1. Kills your hands (wear gloves!)

2. I had to redo the steps several times to get all the “crusty’ stuff off, so it wasn’t as effortless as most said, or I just have an EXTREMLY stubborn stove
