As far as holiday traditions go, for my boys the Advent calendar ranks right up there with making Christmas cookies and putting lights on the tree. They LOVE it… There are so many Advent calendar options out there, they come in all shapes and sizes, filled and not. If you’re looking for something on the decorative side… (more)
I’ve seen this a few places and it makes me laugh every time I read it. Just wanted to share…

In general I’m a list maker. It helps me keep on top of my never ending to-do list. In fact, there are usually three or four lists floating around here at any given moment… Usually these lists are scrawled on random pieces of paper or notebooks, but lately I’ve felt the urge to get a little more formal, and hopefully a little more effective! I googled for a bit on the subject, and found some candidates for my new and improved to-do list, so I thought I’d share…
Maclaren is recalling at least 1 million umbrella strollers because of a potential hazard to children’s fingers. A side hinge mechanism poses the risk of cutting or amputating a child’s fingers when the stroller is being opened or closed, the British company said Monday.

As the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas craziness approaches, I try to remember to slow down, count my blessings, and remember that not everyone has what we are so lucky to have, including a warm place to sleep at night.

If you have unused coats that you’d like to donate, check out these links to winter coat drives in the area… (more)
