One Year Older

birthday celebration
How I spent my birthday.
Yesterday was my birthday and normally I'm pretty excited about it, but there are somethings that I've been dealing with the past few weeks that people my age normally don't have to deal with.  I'll talk more about it at some point.

Whenever we have family in for a visit, we always try to come up with something fun and family friendly to do.  When my dad and step-mom came in for New Year's, we decided to try out the new bowling alley here in Leesburg, VA.

The Magic Kingdom is currently one of the larger parks at Walt Disney World so we decided to take two days there to make sure we experienced everything.  We still didn't get to experience everything.

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

recipe, desert, apple crisp, gluten free,
Last weekend I wanted to bring something for our trip down to visit my dad and step-mom.  I had decided on apple crisp and had a family recipe that I've made before.  I wanted to make sure that my sister-in-law would be able to eat it since she has to eat gluten free.  I spoke with her about what I need to substitute to make this simple recipe good for her and my nephew to be able to eat it.

Easter, Fun Family Activity,
I'm always looking for some fun and fairly cheap ways to decorate the house.  What's better than decorating your house with the things that your little ones have made?

An Alternative Way to Clean a Microfiber Couch

Having kids really puts some real wear and tear on your furniture.  It wasn't too bad when Michael was a baby, we could keep the couch looking nice and clean.  Once he started being mobile and using sippy cups, the couch was always a mess.  Over a year ago, I had written a post called Cleaning Microfiber Furniture.  It works, don't get me wrong, but the big problem with it was that you had to use rubbing alcohol and for me it was lot's of it.
