Our Family Room!

Hey Neighbors,

As most of you know we travel quite a bit as my husband preaches, but we do have a base to take breaks and relax occasionally. The home we do this in has what I would describe as a family room. We have 2 six foot tables to seat everyone for meals and home-schooling, bookcases on most of the walls, and 8 rolling chairs. The actual dining area is not big enough for our family so we turned it into a study with a desk and more bookcases. Can you tell we like to read? Anyway when it comes to TV Furniture we really don't have much. We don't watch regular TV. We have a monitor to watch Christian videos. Mainly on Christian History (the children love hearing about the old preachers and missionaries), Creation vs. Evolution, And we have a few Christian videos just for entertainment.

We don't use a TV stand because we don't want to emphasize TV. I did find the stand above and I would use it for books and display of my figurines. We spend a lot of time reading and playing games together. Friday evening is our scheduled Family Fun Night, but we often play games other evenings too. The girls enjoy doing puzzles together too!

We have our monitor in an entertainment center with doors. The one above sort of resembles ours. I prefer an entertainment centers with doors because it you can close the doors and it doesn't sit there staring at you all day. It has two large drawers that hold most all of our DVD's. It is on wheels so we can move it if necessary. I mush prefer having our Family room set up this way so that we center on the books and games. What do you do?

We do watch TV.. and one of my favorites was one we had before our current one- it had doors kinda like the one shown to just close it all off.
Most times honestly I dont watch TV as much as have it on as background noise :) I do enjoy a couple of shows, but during most of the time it is off anyway. I wish they had old story time radio!

We don't have a tv in our livingroom. It's a room for spending time together, playing games, reading etc.
We do have one in my bedroom, no channels or cable or anything we just use it for dvds or we can output from our computer. That way we always know what the kids are watching.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.
