Things in life....

they just don't always go as we want them to. I have noticed that so much this year. I just sit back and take it day by day and turn it over to the Lord. There is not much else to do right?

I know it's all God's plan and I need to leave it at that. I am like a little kid though can't wait to see what is going to happen next. In time I will see his plan as he has shown me time and time again in my life, but I can't help but sit back and wonder. This weekend we are taking a much needed family trip to a small town in VA, called Burke's Garden. A good friend of my dad's owns a solar cabin there and we love to go for a visit. We went back last Thanksgiving and enjoyed it so much we are going back. Going back to enjoy the peace and quite, back to the nature and to take in the much need simple life. I think to many of us take the simple things in life for granted. I know that I do, and that's why a big change is in order for me and my family. Back to the basics, back where I know I should be.

As I sit and really take in my boys, I think how fast they are growing and changing. It seems like just yesterday Devon started Kindergarten and how he was so scared to walk down the hall to his classroom. How he wanted a night light on in his room at night, how he just needed his Mommy to tuck him in. Oh but my dear Devon is growing up and doing it in a blink of an eye. I sit and listen to a conversation with his father about deer hunting, his friends calling and even talking about his girl friend to me just breaks my heart. How he is growing up so fast and I can do nothing about it, except for stand back and watch him grow into a young man! Sniff Sniff....

I just love the nursery decor selection that they have. They have everything covered from the smallest items such as lamp shades to rugs and even bedding and mobiles. They have so many unique things that I have never seen before, I can't wait to be able to come back in the near future to show you what I have received from them that you may not have ever seen.

Boogie Wipes Review & Giveaway!

With my soon to be 15 month old, I feel as though here in the past week or so all I do is wipe his nose. Don't get me wrong, I would rather be dealing with a cold any day than the flu. The bad part, I know his poor little nose is going to kill him if I use a Kleenex. I don't care how much lotion they put in those things after you use them a while it starts to add up and your nose gets all red and hurts. I mean come on, this is with me personally so you know it does it to our little ones too. So, you ask what else is out there for me to use?

Let me introduce you to Mindee & Julie, the mom masterminds behind Boogie Wipes!

They have created a wonderful product that I am so happy that I got to try and lets just say LOVE! Chandler's nose is not red or irritated. Boogie Wipes are not like a baby wipe, if that is what you are thinking these are like. They are very gentle and made with natural saline to dissolve mucus, they are moisturized with Vitamin E, Aloe and Chamomile.

They come in fun scents that your children will love such as Grape, Fresh scent, and Magic Menthol. The magic Menthol is one that I love, it smells so good and helps Chandler's nose open right up. The package is not big a bulky and the best part, you can get individually wrapped wipes for on the go. Which was great to use on our vacation, easy to just grab out of the diaper bag. Total truth about this wonderful product, they are great for any age!

A Little R&R

Well that is what I would like to think our vacation was, but I will say I sure could use a few days of R&R now. We went on vacation to Orlando, FL and visited the Disney parks. I am sure we walked a few miles a day, maybe along the lines of 5 a day. However, we had a blast!

The crowds where low, we only waited in line at the most 10-15 min, but the only bad thing was the tempature it was in the nice 90's. We had wanting cooler temps, however it did not happen. When we got back home, that's when we seen the cooler temps. We went from the 90's to 38 degrees with flurries when we got back. Needless to say it's still cold up here in these mountains. :)

All in all we had a great time, a time we will never forget. We spent days busy with shows and rides, and then days we just laid at the house and did nothing. If I had the money the plan would be to rent the house for two weeks and go to a park every other day and relax on the off days. As my mom would say "maybe one day when my rich uncle gets out of the poor house".
Even though there are only four parks, I would suggest you to take your time enjoy it and plan on spending two days Magic Kingdom and Epcot and one day at Hollywood Studio's and Animal Kingdom, maybe two days with Animal Kingdom. There is so much to do and see, it's just amazing.

Our older son loved Epcot, I felt he learned a lot from this park. There where lots that he wrote about in his journal for school. That's one of the down falls of taking this kind of trip, you want to do it when the crowds are lower so it that puts it when the kids are in school. However, I felt it was worth it he did get his work done while we where down there, and we hope all in all he did not miss to much at school.

More to come, so stay tuned!
