One evening while taking care of dishes with my six year old son beside me going through our kitchen drawers, he found a gingerbread man cookie cutter. K-man was curious, wanted to know what it was. I explained what it was and immediately he was hoping for me to make some cookies shaped like gingerbread man. Sadly. I had not the ingredients to do that. What I did have was an idea! I told K-man that the next morning, when I make his scrambled eggs, I could use this cutter to try to make Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs. He was […]
The three kids and I absolutely love doing various crafts. Some of the crafts or things we have ended up doing together are; latch hook, crotchet, baking, friendship bracelets and collages.

It’s been going on for a week or two now, Baby K has lost interest in nursing and my milk supply has suffered from his lack of nursing. It’s a sad time for me, because he is my last baby, and he is growing up. I thought he would be hard to wean and here he is weaning off around the same age his sister did years ago. I should have known Baby K would have weaned around the same time as big sissy because he is so much like her in other ways. Baby K reminds me of those […]
