Christmas in Argentina and more...

Don't cry for me Argentina....Okay you knew that had to be in the post!   

We started our Christmas Around the World studies today and Argentina is our 1st stop along the way!  We will be learning about this country all week with a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebration on Thursday and Friday.

 Wont you join us for the journey!  


Sam and Sofia from Little Passports told us that the Northern part of Argentina is very warm and tropical. While the Southern part has a cold climate like Alaska.  WOW that would be hard to pack for a trip to Argentina! 


Buenos Aires a very big city in Argentina.  The Andes Mountains are also found in Argentina. 


Each child has their own Christmas Around the World Folder. Using printables from Living Life Intentionally.  Love these!



This was in our Little Passports suitcase.  Making SNOW!  This is used on movie sets and other areas to create snow. It lasts for weeks!  It was fun!





In addition, we are starting our FUN Christmas learning using so many FREE Printables out there! 





This week: Reindeer Pack from 3 Dinosaurs and Royal Baloo  Both packs are FREE for the downloading and printing.  Share the link with your friends! Homeschooler or not, the kids will love them!

What I LOVE about these packs is that there are activities for ALL my children.  Pre-K on up to 3rd.  






Here are some other fun ideas with the theme of Reindeer


Peanut Butter cookies (or sugar cookies), M & Ms and Pretzels! FUN

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!�…
