Great responses from Green Cleaning

So I have had some fabulous responses from green cleaning.
Please keep the responses coming and send me those recipes.
I am definitely going to try them
 out.  Vinegar and baking soda
seem to be a common ingredient in a lot of these household
cleaners.  Something we have a lot of.  Thanks to food storage.

Here is a recipe I used many moons ago when Savannah was my only baby.
I will tell you I love this recipe so much and for quite some
time, it was the baby gift I gave before I learned to crochet.
My dear friend Vickie gave me this recipe and I have kept
it with my other loved recipes.  We used it
for @ 3/5ths of our kids.

Diaper Wipes

1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 tbsp. baby wash
3/4 tbsp baby oil
64 sheet Bounty paper towels
(each roll makes 2 batches)
Cut the paper towels in half through the core.
Take the core out and get the center 
towel out to put through the hole in the lid.  Place the paper towels
in your container cut side up.
Now since I made these wipes, it has become more
difficult finding the cylindrical containers.  Like this one 

Combine the water, oil, and wash.  These days
you have so many choices.  Pour over the towels. 
Put the center towel through the hole on the lid.  Let them
sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

You'll need to enlarge the hole on the lid so the towels
can pull out without tearing.

Regular wipes cost about $4 a package.  These
average out to be about $.63 per package if not less!

A Young Man Turns 9

It is so hard to believe that my oldest boy turned 9 on Dec 30th. 9 years! Wow. We began our journey with little Larry at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. My 17 week ultrasound had shown that I was carrying twins in which 1 twin had died just the week before. It was such devastating news. I remember lying there thinking do such things happen. The poor OB cried along with us. He honestly was not sure what the outcome would be for the living twin because it appeared the 2 babies shared a sac. Not only did they share a sac, but it also appeared the 2 might even be conjoined at the abdomen. Of course I went to a specialist who was able to determine the "syndrome." I really HATE that word. But my baby had what is known as OEIS Syndrome. Oomphalocoele, Exstrophy, Imperforate Anus, Spina Bifida. Wow. What is this and do such things really exist? Well, the specialist really only wanted to help us out in 1 way, abortion. He felt this child would never live a normal life. And yet he had never…

Beach Blanket Bingo

Last week we packed our bags and headed for Hilton Head Island. We had never been there before and heard rave reviews from quite a few friends.  Being just 5 hours from our house, how could we not look into it. Such a love affair between father and daughter. These two absolutely adore one another. My fearless Ethan.  He scared me too death because he was always out far from the beach and alone. He had absolutely no fear and was a pro on that little boogie board. Funny story, on our first day there,  Ethan had gotten out a little far and was alone so Larry Denzil went out to join him. Behind Ethan, Larry saw a fin peer up out of the water  in reaching distance and pulled Ethan to him. When he turned toward the shore, it was just a dolphin.  Whew!   I absolutely love this picture.  Ethan just sat in the shallow pool of water and did what looked like synchronized swimming.
Xander and Larry both boogie boardin' fools. Larry tried to hit dad up for a surf board. What was he thinking?  I can tell teen years …

One Last Summer Hurrah

Well, our saturday got off to a rocky start, but in the end, I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  We started the morning off by running a few quick errands.  On our way home, we stopped at the local Krispy Kreme and went to Carrier Park for breakfast.  While at the park, Larry and the kids did a little exploring and I found this neat tree.  Each kid was super excited to climb up and have their picture taken.  Xander was the first.  He had absolutely no fear and climbed up fairly high.  He was much higher than any other child.

This is my favorite picture of little Larry.  He just looks like such a man here.  He is really good at posing for shots too.  Can you tell I take hundreds of pictures of the kids because they instinctively know just how to pose.

We placed Ruby and Ethan up in the tree.  Both of them wanted down as soon as they were up. Ethan said he was too high.

Here is my beautiful Savannah.  She is growing so fast.

Ruby loved the tree once Daddy was in it with her. As a matter of fact,…
