Planning Our Cruise!

Hey neighbors!

The excitement is building!  Only 5 weeks before we leave to head south for the Singing At Sea Cruise with my daughters.  Yes, just the 4 girls and I.  My husband is staying home and caring for the dogs and such.

We will head to Alabama first to visit some friends, some of whom are also going on the cruise, before we head down to the port.  We leave from the port on a Monday and return to port on a Friday.  This is the girls second cruise, but it will be my first.

Anyone here been on a cruise before?  Any recommendations?  Be sure to leave a comment and share any tips you may have.

I am really going to enjoy this cruise, because it is all southern gospel music and several groups will be there, that we consider friends.  I also like that they rent the entire ship and shut down all the bars, well, almost all.  The ice cream bar, pizza bar, etc. will remain open.

We will be on the Enchantment of the Seas.  We will have stops in Nassau and a private island, Coco Cay.

I already purchased a special bag for my camera, along with a rolling duffel and a rolling carry-on.  I have sunscreen and after burn lotion.  Oh, and of course we will stock up on lip balm.  Any advice?

I will be sharing updates as we go along!

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.

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
