Merry Christmas!

I wanted to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas! I hope that you are all having a happy holidays and enjoying time with family, friends and loved ones. 

We are visiting with family and little man is having a wonderful time exploring, playing and spending time with family. He absolutely loves Christmas lights and is making so many special memories. 

Hubby and I feel very blessed to be able to spend time with our family this Christmas and our hearts are full of joy and amazement as we reflect on the on the meaning of Christmas and that Christ came to earth as a tiny baby. 
"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,  "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
-Luke 2:9-14

I can't imagine what it must have been like to see a host of angels fill the sky glorious it must have been! I can't imagine what it was like for Mary to hold her new baby boy and look into his eyes ...what a joy to snuggle her baby and the Savior.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you to all of you who take the time to read my blog and leave comments. I appreciate each and every one of you! I look forward to what is to come in the new year!

Who Knew...

I love Pinterest! I love learning new tips and tricks! I saw this great and easy idea the other day on how to grow your own green onions {credit} I thought I would give it a try!

Here's how it's going so far:

Who knew, huh? I am super excited to keep growing my new little sprouts and hopefully I won't have to buy too many more green onions! 

I'd love to know if any of my readers have tried this or anything similar!

Thanks Mama Review & Giveaway!

Thanks Mama is a wonderful online cloth diaper retailer that carries a great variety of cloth diapers and accessories, potty training pants, baby gear, natural toys and many other items for mom and baby! Thanks Mama carries some of the top cloth diaper brands and they even have created some fabulous cloth diaper packages, so that you can get everything you need in one bundle! Helena is the mama behind Thanks Mama and she not only offers a wonderful selection of fluff and other goodies to shop for, but she also genuinely wants to help with any questions you might have! If you're new to cloth diapering, Thanks Mama has some great resources to help you choose the right size and style of diaper for your little one. They even offer free, personalized diaper recommendation based on your baby's measurements! Thanks Mama also has a Cloth Diaper Information page that can help answer questions you might have about cloth diapers. If you don't find what you are looking for there, Thanks Mama is more than happy to have you contact them and chat with them directly! I think that the customer service at Thanks Mama is just excellent! Helena does a lovely job of adding a personal touch to orders (like the sweet note she sent along with my trainer!) and I really appreciate the emphasis that they put on wanting to help the customers at Thanks Mama!

Helena sent me a FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainer in the "No Dumping" print to review. I just love the fun print! It makes me smile and little man loves the truck on it! One great thing about the print is that it is digitally printed, so you don't have to worry that it will fade or peel off over time! The overall design on the diaper makes it so that your little one can either pull down the trainer or they can be snapped off (in case of an accident!). Little man still needs a little bit of help when pulling down trainers, but this one is pretty easy for him to pull down, with just a little bit of help. The inner lining of the trainer is super soft minky fabric that allows your little one to feel wetness, but it is still absorbent enough if they do have an accident. The middle of the trainer has a bit of extra padding for extra protection against leaks too. Little man absolutely loves how soft this trainer is! He actually likes to lay down on it like a blanket (when it is clean of course!) and he says, "Soft undies".

 I also really like the dual side snap design that allows for an adjustable fit. Weight-wise, little man is on the end of the weight limit for a medium FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainer, but he has a thin waist, so I chose the medium size. I found that little man needed a little extra room in the leg area, since the leg band was a little snug on him. So, I was so thankful that the creative minds behind the FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainer put 2 rows of snaps and when I snapped the leg snap to the furthest snap it was a perfect fit!

The waist band fits little man really well, but in my opinion, the middle area is a bit "poofy". It's not a trim fitting trainer around the mid-section, but the trainer works very well and it's more of an aesthetic thing and I don't think that it affects how well the trainer functions.

Overall, I love the FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainer! The prints are just adorable and the diaper is so soft! I really like the adjustable side snaps and this is a great trainer for little man to wear, especially when we go out of the house and may have to hunt for a potty! It is definitely nice to have the extra layer of padding sewn into the wet zone on the inside. Also, with the outer of the diaper being waterproof, it is the perfect trainer when we are out and about! I love that it can catch any of his "tiny, tiny accidents" (as little man calls them) and little man loves the truck print and the cozy, soft minky inner! It is definitely a fun and easy trainer to use! I would definitely recommend this trainer to anyone who has a little one headed towards potty training and I absolutely recommend Thanks Mama as a place to shop, whether you are looking for training pants, cloth diapers, items for the nursery, baby gear or something for yourself!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope that you all have a very happy Thanksgiving and enjoy time with family and eating tasty treats! We are spending the day with some of my hubby's family. I know we will be spending plenty of time gathered around the table chatting, laughing and gobbling up food that has been prepared with love. We will be playing card games, joking and little man will be doted over all day!

I am so thankful for all that the Lord has blessed us with. I am thankful daily for little man, my hubby, our families, our home and every little thing that God has given us. God has truly blessed our family - He is an awesome God. I love that today is a day for family to gather, spend time together and have fun!

I hope that you all enjoy your day and make many happy memories!
