Happy Holiday Season

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have been too busy. But busy in a good way. Lots of changes going on with my other business that is taking all of my time. I am sorry to all of my mom-stuff friends for the absence of posts .

Oct. from the Leaves from the Tree of Life

For all of the glory in the branches, the earth has finished her work of production.  We celebrate now with what we already possess; we make cider from the apples we’ve picked and store the squash for the winter.  We have such security in our substance that we will play with our food, carving faces where candles can glow in a pumpkin that will never be eaten.   In consumer psychology, the orange colors of October inspire ideas of warmth and richness, a concept seized upon by advertisers of brandy and other upscale foods. They also physically stimulates the pancreas, which produces digestive enzymes for digestion of starches, sugars and fats in addition to insulin.  Fast-food marketers have capitalized on that bit of information, which explains the remarkably homogenous decorating schemes of the major chains.    From candle-glow to decorative orange leaf bags, everything proclaims glory in October.
Excerpt from Leaves from the Tree of Life by Dianne Murray and Kim Welborn.

How tp Plan a Halloween Family Party
Family is were all the fun begins. Every year our family has an annual Halloween party and we wanted to share with all of you our experiences. This will let you take the ideas and make your own family fun. You can use these ideas and make them your own by adding your families personalities to them. If you do not have extended family around you get together with other moms and plan your Halloween Party together. This is a good way for everyone to make more friends. “Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted.” ~Paul Pearshall . . . keep reading

Today's the Longest Day of the Year

Summer Solstice
While Memorial Day is the “unofficial” start of summer, today the season really begins. Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the start of summer in the northern hemisphere is 1:16 p.m. today. According to, the date of the “June solstice” varies from June 20 to June 22 depending on the year.The Farmer’s Almanac states that “the word solstice comes from the Latin words for “sun” and “to stop,” due to the fact that the sun appears to stop in the sky.” With the sun high overhead today, this will be the longest day of the year. How do you spend your longer days? More time outside playing with the kids or more hours working?
Tell us about how you will be spending the longest day of the year?
I hope what ever you choose to do today it will be fun.
Head over to for some fun ideas for your summer fun.
