Rustic Red and Brown Christmas Tree

Since my husband isn't a fan of my Peacock tree we decided to go with a Red and Brown Christmas tree this year. Bonus is it matches our living room decor already.

Double Digit Math - Addition and Subtraction

My son loves math, it's one of his favorite subjects. However, because of all the rules, double digit math takes him down. I did some checking and came up with my own version of teaching him double digit math. In my research I found some math rhymes for double digit math that I thought would resonate with my son and created a cheat sheet. 

Listed below are the sheets I created to help him which include double digit math rules and some blank practice pages. Please feel free to use them. I am also including an editable Excel file if you would like to change colors or what not.

Princess Dress Pull-Apart Cake


So this is my first attempt at making a Pull-Apart Cake. I made it for my nieces 7th birthday. To keep with a pink theme I used a new product by Duncan Hines - Pink Velvet Cake. I frosted the cake using a 1M frosting tip and Pilsbury Pink Funfetti frosting. The tiara and wand are form the $1 bins at Target and the diamond ribbon is from Hobby Lobby in the cake section.


Make Taking Bitter/Nasty Tasting Pills Easier to Swallow


Our family has a love hate relationship with Antibiotics. On one hand they get the job done on the other some of them just taste downright awful if they get stuck on your tongue. Enter my son who is a champion medicine taker. He has had multiple ear infections since he was a baby and every year we dread taking antibiotics. He has progressed to taking pills instead of the liquid meds which is helpful but some of the antibiotics he has taken still taste horrible. So this sent me on a mission to make taking bitter tasting pills easier.

The best method we have found is to actually cut the pill in half and take a small section of Fruit Rollup and wrap the pill in it. Trust me this is kid tested, mother approved. My son has even begged me to post this so other kids don't have to suffer - LOL.


Operation Candy Coated Pill to the Rescue


Step 1 - Cut the Pill in Half (Especially if it's a big horse pill)


Step 2 - Tear Off a Small Piece of Fruit Rollup and get Ready to Warp the Pill


Step 3 - Wrap the Pill and Easily Take it with No Gagging or Spitting it Back Up


That's it - simple fix and it tastes great. You might ask your Pharmacist before trying this method. Just in case it would mess with your pills delivery system but hopefully this method allows you to enjoy no drama pill taking.
