Manischewitz Chanukah House!

Hi Neighbors!

I received a Chanukah House kit from Manischewitz.  They are actually having a contest for decorating a Chanukah House.  It ends December 15th, so be sure to hurry up and enter!

I allowed my two daughters to make and decorate the house.  They really had quite a bit of fun.  So, yes an adult might make it look more neat, but they definitely could not have more fun than these two did.

They went out to our back deck to one of our picnic tables to do their creating.  The kit comes with pre-formed walls and roof pieces.  You have to ice them together and then decorate.  They used a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil for their base.  (I think they ate as much icing as they put on!)

First the walls and roof are erected.  They are joined with icing.  Ours had a few cracks and broken pieces from shipping, but I think they did pretty good!

Oh!  Don't forget the chimney!

See what I mean about licking fingers!

Then the real decorating started.  Blue icing, candy pieces, doors, windows, oh my!

 Look here!  The door is on, windows in place and the roof is almost decorated.

Placing the last few pieces!

All done!  It looks quite tasty!

Unfortunately, they were working outside and it was a little warm!  The wall fell in and the roof toppled.

The girls really enjoyed this!  Be sure and pick one up.  You can enter the competition, or just let the children have some fun!

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.
