    May be hard to transport, but home made soup! I loved home made soup the first two weeks of my maternity leave! (After that I had to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner myself! And I had a C-section!)

    Yes there is! Going to Walmart after the Link/Snap cards are loaded! And Friday and Saturday’s are awful for going to Walmart any time! And Yes, I still need to do my shopping for Easter dinner! UGH!!!

    Growing up we did not have egg hunts! It was those store bought Easter baskets if my parents could afford it, and family dinner! My husband and I started the tradition of Easter egg hunt at our house maybe 8 years ago!

    We are doing an egg hunt, Kaylyn is getting a Frozen Easter Basket, then we follow the hunt with a family dinner!

    How old are your kids Anabel? My Niece 13 and Nephew 12 still like egg hunts and Easter Baskets! We make our own baskets for several reasons! 1. The store bought ones we see around are cheesy! 2. We put stuff in them that the kids would like at the age they are at at the time! 3. (Should be #1 reason) We limit the amount and kind of candy that are put in the baskets! (Kaylyn does not like chocolate!)

    It is! The kids look forward to it every year!

    We always make back up plans for if it rains/snows and we can’t do the hunt! The back up plan is to play bingo to win a group of eggs at a time! Hopefully we don’t have to fall back on it, and we can have the hunt this Sunday!

    We do at least one every year! Mine! While my daughter and I are at church, my husband hides the eggs for 16 children! There usually are 600+ eggs for them to find! So you could imagine how filled the middle of the yard looks when it starts! We let the children 5 and under go out and hunt first (obviously, they are the ones getting the eggs in the middle of the yard) Usually we have special eggs with special prizes in them, but this year we are just handing out the special prizes!

    I always start it by saying: That silly Easter bunny made a mess in my yard, do you think you can clean my yard for me?

    If the kids meekly say Yes, I tell them I can’t hear them! then they scream YES! Then we open the door and let the younger ones out first! They get 5 minutes then we let the bigger ones go join them! (We have children under 2, so we have to allow them time to get to the eggs!

    My daughter loves the movie! Elsa is her favorite! Kaylyn liked Cinderella, but just really never got into her as much as she is into Merida from Brave and Elsa from Frozen!

    Know how much of a craze Frozen is? Well, I searched 10 different stores just to find Elsa, any Elsa doll, and finally found the Toddler doll! So now she is getting toddler Elsa and baby Anna in her Easter Basket!

    It’s a battle between My Little Pony, and Frozen! She seen Frozen for the first time yesterday, and now, she loves Elsa! She has just about every my little pony out there! So, I might go with Frozen!
    Just a week and a half to go, and I am so torn! LOL!!! I just try to limit the number of different kinds of toys she has, and Frozen is the first movie about princesses that she likes! I had high hopes for Sofia, but she isn’t into her! Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, snow white, etc just don’t do it for her like Elsa and Anna! (Elsa mostly!) Oh, I forgot about Brave, she likes Merida too!

    Oh, and a suggestion to try! I had the same problem with getting my daughter to get ready, or get coat or shoes on! I attended this meeting at her school that was to teach the parents how to discipline the children, without spanking them. Honestly, when I went in, I did not think I would learn anything! (I don’t spank my daughter! For a spanking, she would really have to do something that can hurt her more than the spanking would!) But, the lady running it told us to make it fun, or make it a game! She told us that she makes it a race to get coats on, and get to the car!

    So, now what I do is: Kay I will get my coat on before you! Kaylyn will run to get her coat on fast, because she don’t like losing! If she seems a little slow, I will dawdle! Then I tell her I will beat her to the car! She runs to the car! She has fun when you turn things into a race! Of course, the whole ride to where ever we are going is discussion on how fast she beat me! But, the purpose of doing it has been met!

    Still working on getting her to get dressed in the morning! The one thing that works for me is: She likes to play with either her Nintendo 3DS or IPad, or watch tv a little before school. So, I tell her she can do what she would like to once she is dressed! Goes with the earning screen time!

    My daughter gets star stickers at school, and every 5th star she gets, they give her a five star card! For the first four (twenty stars) each five star card she gets, we let her pick whether we go to a McDonalds or a Burger King with a play place! After 25 stars are reached she gets to pick from Chuck E Cheese or another place like Chuck E Cheese! But if she doesn’t want one of them, we let her pick a toy or something to buy! Don’t worry, we don’t go to the play places every week, she doesn’t always earn her stars! (You would think that she would want to since she gets two rewards, one from us, and one from the teacher!)

    Books are nice! But I think he would enjoy a lawn mower that blows bubbles!

    For Christmas we got a gift card for 3 days and 2 nights at any of 6 resorts, I want to go, but my husband lost his second job, and to keep from drowning in bills, he needs to find work! He will not be able to get away for a while, if or when he finds the second job! And right now, we can’t afford the travel part until he gets the second job! :(

    My daughter has an IPad, Nintendo 3DS, WII, My Little Ponies, Equestria girl dolls, Winx Club dolls! It depends on what she has the biggest kick for at the time! My daughter doesn’t want to watch a lot of tv so it don’t make sense to take that away! The only time I take something away from her for longer than a day is when she is really bad in school! And that is when all the electronics get taken, because they are what would bother her the most! Although, she is pretty content with playing in blanket forts too! :/ I can’t take everything away!

    When I catch my daughter lying, I take away the privileges while at the same time explaining to her that she breaks my heart when she lies! If I catch her when she starts to lie, I stop her and remind her that I don’t like it when she lies to me! And that it breaks my heart because I have to be mean and take ___________ away because she is lying! Usually, she stops, and tells me the truth! So far, this has worked for me! Usually when they are that young they don’t want to disappoint Mom or Dad!
