Here we go go go go on an adventure....

To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday today we went on an adventure....the truck was the Thingamajigger (for those of you not up on your current Cat In The Hat, he is back and on PBS in the mornings - the Thingamajigger is what he flies in)...we went on an adventure today! (3/2/11)




First stop of the day Michael's Craft store for a Dr Seuss Bookmark making craft!  Kids had a nice time and made two bookmarks each!



Then over to Homegoods - we thought these were "Seuss Like"...kids loved them!
Momma found a few great finds on clearance, but that's for another blog post!



He wanted some love so bad. At one point he turned around and spread his wings up against the cage for me to give him a little rubbin'.  Almost took him home 8)



Then over to Petco where we reminded of the Dr Seuss Book - "Are You My Mother?" we talked about it and laughed when we saw some younger, possibly babies in the little nest basket.






The children were so good on all our stops today, I surprised them with a visit to a local McDonalds that has an indoor playland!  We have not been here in almost 2 years so it was a real treat! They were sooo happy!  Even Sammie, who is not even 2, climbed all the way up to the top and was slidding down.

We ate in the "Birthday Room" with all the character chairs - after all it is Dr. Seuss' birthday!


When we got home, we watch a new movie I found on Ebay - Cute movie! 

Then some sit down work while Sam napped. This is a great flip chart I found for Molly. This one is counting activities. I also have one with colors and blending colors. You can write on them with dry erase markers too.



I made up Dr Seuss workbooks for each of the kids from print outs I found at www.seussville.com. Enough pages to last the month!

All in all a great sunny day!

What a Seuss filled day. We are going to a Dr. Seuss party tonight at the library. Can't wait to post pics of it. I love your blog. So colorful and fun. We will be reading Dr. Seuss books too. My 7 year old is finally able to read them to me (with some help of course). I can't even read some of the words. LOL

What a super fun day! I love the flip book. Also, I love the book you made with the printouts. Did you bind it yourself? I was thinking of investing in one. Great pictures! Have a wonderful day.
Sounds like fun! We loved Dr. Seuss when the kids were younger. I can't wait to get our books out of storage and read through them once again.

Sorry for not stopping by for your Lego day-- it seems that my boys have decided they are too old after all to participate. Unless it would be with the new architectural lego sets. lol

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
