Dress Up and Growing Up

Hi Neighbors!

How many of you have a little girl, or not so little girl who likes to play dress-up?  My 11 year old is going through an amazing stage right now.  Not only does she like to play dress-up, but she is starting to want to bake, cook, sew etc.  One minute she is running around in a princess dress and cape, and the next she is making homemade bread all by herself.

She is the youngest, so watching her go through this stage is sad, but sweet.  She goes from little girl to young lady.  My husband said the Lord gave her to us to put a smile on his face.  She loves to tease him in return.  In the last week she has baked bread and made chocolate cream pie, all from scratch.  She even whipped up heavy cream to make her own whipped topping.  She did very well on her first tries.

We are working through a book from Keepers of the Faith called Keepers At Home.  It has all sorts of ideas and projects for girls to accomplish to prepare them to be a wife and mother.  They are both excited about working through the book.  She is really looking forward to sewing and taking charge of preparing meals.  I will keep you posted on how it goes.

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.
