God Bless Us, Everyone!

Merry Christmas to your family from ours!
Naters was 4 yrs old when we went to Disney World in September (the family picture in front of the epcot space ball).  We had a great time at Disney world (our first) and are already planning our second trip there for January 2013!  Recommend to anyone who is thinking about it!

Have a wonderful & Healthy New Year!

Christmas play-doh

Red is scented with Peppermint, and the green is scented with Mistletoe & ivy

Since i've been making the monthly playdoh again, she's playing with it way more than she was the store bought play-doh, which just makes me happy to make it for her!

scholastic warehouse sale

I think i did pretty well.  the entire back row are hardback books.  So glad i got the new Bad Kitty book.  Love those for the abc's in them!  Naters practically has the first one memorized!  So got these 19 brand new books for $75.67 (tax included)  I thought that was a great price since six of them are hardback!  I do admit, I really miss my border's book store and their coupons!  I think these are the first books i've purchased since my local border's closed...

thanks for looking!

Christmas Sensory tub, December 2011

This is Nater's Christmas sensory tub for this month.  I'm going to be changing her sensory tubs up a little bit.  I try to incorpoate them into whatever subject we are concentrating on the for week, two weeks, or monthly period of time we give to a subject..  She is getting older (4yrs 4mos old) and I want them to be more education centered.  So she may not have a sensory tub every month, but when she has one I hope that they we will more educational or be able to reinforce more of whatever subject we are working on.  Won't be too technical; but will depend on what materials i can find on the cheap (garage sales, estate sales, resale shops) or shopping with my coupons (Hobby Lobby, Joann's, Michael's, Lakeshore Learning, United Art & Education).  Will let you know how my ideas for this unfold.....
Pretty much everything in the tub is recycled from last year except the spoons.  Last year she got the colored rice separated initially, but then it was combined during play; so this year it's combined.  Thanks for looking!
