Oh Boy has been crazy

Good afternoon everyone!
Well I am back. We have all of the birthdays and hopefully all of the illness is done!!! For the all of the boys birthdays we went to a hotel with an indoor waterpark. Which was totally awesome!!! Can you tell I grew up in the 80's? Ha Ha It was worth every penny saved to go. But we need to put our best effort into being frugal again.

It is taking me sometime to get back into my frugal thinking. Which is not good for the checkbook. But...I am not alone. I just recently spoke to someone who is VERY frugal. She stated that she has her times when she is not as tight as she would like to be with the food budget. So....please pray for me that I will get back on track. Because it is my passion to help people get their households and finances on track.

Here is what I hope to have coming soon. Pictures!!! My boys and husband are my life and I am so proud of them. So we will have pictures soon! Receipes ... frugal ones!!! This is where alot of our money is spent. So I am always looking for new things. How I use coupons. This takes some practice...but it is possible with crazy boys. How I reduce my utilities. This something I am constantly doing.
Also ...lots lots more!! If you have any questions or ideas, please let me know.

Thanks so much for all of your patience!!!

Birthdays and Sick Boys

Hello everyone!!
Well this past week I have had our twins 6th birthday party!! Yes I did have tears that day. Each year I think about how we had a rocky start when they were born. Kollin and Preston were 9 1/2 weeks early. But by the grace of God they were only on ventilators for 2 days and that was just for precaution. After that they were on nasal assistance only. Also we came home 2 weeks earlier than expected. God has been wonderful to me to give me 3 healthy boys.

But I will post birthday pictures later!! I promise!! We do have another big weekend planned. Instead of the birthday party with all of the cousins(we have a huge family on both sides) we are going to an indoor waterpark. So we have to get rid of this stomach/intestinal virius soon!!

Year ago a friend of mine had said that when her three children would get sick she would throw away the old toothbrushes and but new ones. This helps stop the spread of germs. Well this is what I do. I take a microwave save glass measuring cup, fill it full of water and pop it in the microwave. Bring the water to a boil and stick the toothbrushes in for about 10 minutes. In my opinion this has helped keep us from spreading germs and keep us healthy.

I have some other things I have thought of, so I will post again early next week. Also I have some of our favorite receipes coming.
