I just made two 9 inch round cakes and stacked them with a layer of frosting in between. Then I frosted the whole thing with orange frosting. I used brown Resse’s Pieces for the lines. I basically made a plus sign on the cake, then added two curvy lines. Then I filled in the rest with orange Resse’s Pieces. He knew exactly what it was when I showed it to him and was very excited. All my kids were excited to eat it.
I wanted to make my boy a shirt with a design I liked. I started by rounding up a white t-shirt, an iron, and some heat transfer printer paper. I found it at Walmart.Next I created my design and printed it on the heat transfer paper with an ink jet printer. I made sure I flipped the transfer so the writing would come out the right way in the end.After that, I cut out the design trying to avoid sharp corners.
I carefully lined up the image. Make sure that if there is writing, that it is straight. You don’t want the writing to go on an angle if you can avoid it.Next, I slowly iron the transfer paper on the shirt. I had to make sure to press hard.After letting the image cool for a couple of minutes, I was ready to peel the backing off the image. I started at one corner and slowly pulled it back.
I just cut a space between the lines on the index card. I made it to show a few words at a time, but you can make it a little bigger to show longer segments if you need. It works great, and helps him keep his place and not get overwhelmed with all the writing on the page.
When my oldest was born, my mom went out and bought me a box of bag balm. She said it was great for diaper rash. She used it on all her kids and it worked wonders. I used it for ever diaper on him, and had no problems. With my next kids, I wasn’t so faithful about putting the bag balm on every time I changed them. I did notice that when they started to get red, I would rub it on and the red would almost be gone by the next time I changed their diapers.
This past winter, one of my boys got really chapped hands. They were cracked and bleeding all the time. I started putting bag balm on them before bed. Then I would have him put on gloves. Within a couple of nights, his hands were soft and healing. I would recommend always have this in your medicine kit. It works wonders.
This is a great recipe to try if you are craving something a little sweet, and a little salty. I usually like kettle corn, but if I’m in a pinch, this works great. Start by air popping 1/2 cup popcorn kernals.Add 2 Tablespoons melted margarine. You can use butter, but we have found that margarine worked a little better.
Add 1 teaspoon sugar, and a pinch of salt to taste.
- ½ cup popcorn kernels
- 2 T melted margarine
- 1 tsp sugar
- pinch of salt
- Pop the popcorn in an air popper. Pour melted margarine, sugar, and salt on popcorn. Cover and shake well.
