Picture Day (Karlson Crew)

Today Sara and I worked on taking pictures of our kids. The overcast weather this morning worked out great in our favor. I did not get all the cute ones of Georgia on my cd, but here are a few great ones of her kids.

Happy Birthday Grandma


Last night we celebrated my Grandma’s 85th Birthday.  We had dinner at Sakura Chaya. I had never been before, it was so yummy! Micah came with us to the dinner part, he was pretty enthralled with the whole thing. Afterwards, we went to my moms for dessert and presents. It was a nice evening. Happy Birthday Grandma, you’re the best!

Coupon Deals 2/20/09


Here is a link to a printable Johnson’s Buddies coupon.  I really like the sudzing bar soap. It has a mesh around it, which is easy for the kids to grip onto. These usually run for about a dollar, which would make these free with coupon!

Rotating Toys


In our house as I am sure in yours, we have toys coming out of our ears.With each child comes more toys! My husband really spurred on this idea when I was pregnant with Noah, and having a tough time keeping a handle on the cleaning. You would walk into our house and just see a mountain of toys everywhere. I always did keep some things up in the closet for special times, like puzzles, Legos, and Play Dough, but it was not enough.

The way we do it in our house, is that we have a couple of baskets of toys up in our closet (out of site from them to see). I usually try to rotate every month. There are a few really great things about doing this. One is it helps me clean out and de clutter every time I do the switch over.It is amazing how many McDonalds toys, and broken pieces end up in the toy box. The second thing is, that the toys are all new again to the kids. They seem to play longer with them, then we we had them all out at once. Finally, it is of course easier to clean up when you have out half as many.  I have really loved doing this for more then a year now. I recommend trying this out.
