Preschool Prep

Wow!  It has been way to long since I last posted on our blog.  I figured since Dad is in Korea this year, it might be a good time to start it back up.  Hopefully we can keep him informed and up to date with his little cuties here at home.
My Baby is going off to Pre-School. (sniff, sniff)   Isn't he such a cutie?
With school starting we had to do some preschool organization around the house starting with where to put the lunch boxes.  This is our first year doing home lunches.  I am actually really excited to send them off to school with something homemade each day. I found some of these lunch boxes at Kohl's for a steal.  
I ended up getting two of them for just $1.84.
I love these Easy Lunch boxes that fit inside the lunchbox perfectly.
These were another great find.  They are reusable water bottles that also fit inside their lunch boxes.  The kids love the fun designs, and I love the organizational tray that goes in the fridge.
This is my Allergy Baby's snack for his first day of Pre-School.   He had fun helping me to get it all ready. 
Since he does have allergy's we needed to put together a little allergy kit for him to take to Pre-School in his back pack. 
This is what I normally cary around for him in my purse. 
 I found this cute little zippered pencil case and thought it would be perfect for the "Allergy Kit".   The kit includes an Epipen,  his allergy information sheet, liquid medicine dispenser, DoTERRA's Breathe essential oil, liquid allergy medication, and his allergy alert wristband.
It's all ready to go into his back pack.
Spare "just in case" clothes.  I like keeping it all together in a Ziploc bag.
Snackbox is packed and ready to go. 
His back pack is all ready to go. 
He is all ready to go.  
Momma, not quite ready for him to go.

Look at what Brooke and I have added to our list...Yep we are new family members to doTERRA. I have dabbled in EO's (Essential Oils) for a few years before I got married. Then I just kinda put them on the back burner and forgot about them. Then a dear friend and neighbor of mine re-introduced me to EO's and doTERRA after I had my 3rd baby a couple of years ago. She called me one day after having the baby to see how I was doing and could hear my frustration. Not only did I have a newborn that had some health issues but two very active toddlers that were 16 months and 3. She ran over with her diffuser and a handful of oils to share with me. We ran the diffuser with some Balance I couldn't get enough. Here it is 2 1/2 years later and I was talking to Brooke about them and she started using the Slim and Sassy  and she has lost 13 pounds in 2 1/2 weeks. AMAZING (she will have to tell you her story)!

So I just want to share with you are new adventure and if your are interested here is Brooke's link I will get mine tomorrow. We are hoping to share with you our experiences with using the oils. And help you see the benefits of making yourself and your family Healthier and also the many uses of the oils. I use them in my homemade laundry soap, deodorant, use them in cleaning, dusting, add them to my drinking water for something refreshing other then having a sugary soda, and the many ways you can use them to help you feel better. Relieve pain, help sleep better, give you more energy, etc.

Have you ever used EO's? What has been your experience?

New Years resolutions are something I look forward to every New Year. I love setting goals and working toward them all year not just at the beginning of the new year. But I also love the clean slate at the begging of the new year, a fresh start on uncharted territory. So far I have only managed to keep one New Years resolution. No Caffeinated Soda, I have managed to go without my caffeine fix for the past almost 4 months (go me). But that doesn't mean my resolve as wained towards my other goals for this year. I just get to try harder each day to do a little better.
How are you doing on your resolutions?

HaPpY bIrThDaY.. We are 3!

3 years ago we came up with this blog to share things that our Mom would have loved to share with others. More of a tribute to her and all of her hobbies that she passed on to us. The last couple of years since her passing we have had "Grandma J Pay it Forward Days"

The rule is to do something that will help another. We have heard of some amazing stories. Even people that haven't known our mom has stepped in and had great experiences in what they have done. Service was a huge part of moms life and we want to follow her example and do our part. I love that commercial when one person does something nice for another and someone else sees that and they do something and it becomes a full circle from where it began.

Have a great day of Service! And THANK YOU for following our Blog.

Remember the more followers we get we will start having giveaways. We have some already in mind so share with your friends!!!

Sunday at church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) I learned how to index records so that it will help those that are working on their family history learn more about their Ancestors. It is so addicting and very easy to do. There is A LOT of work that needs to be done so they are asking for anybody that is willing and able to help. Go HERE to get started! Try it out. I am able to index 20 plus name a day during my kiddos "rest time". It is great for me to make use of some well needed "down time"

How is your Family History coming along? What have you done to help your children to know more about your Heritage?
