Dandelion Puffs: These wishes just wait on a shelf or kitchen counter until a sad child needs some love and encouragement. Then, it is off with the cap, eyes squinched closed for a wish, and a big huff. This cheers children any time they're sad–and it makes me happy just to see the dandelion puffs resting in wait. So sweet... ♥

Date Night with Mom: teaching our sons how to treat a lady.
For those in your life who's loved ones are deployed/deploying...my sister did something much like what this girl did: My brother-in-law deployed and they bought enough Hershey's kisses to give each of their two children one each night. They call them "Kisses from Daddy", so that they still get a "kiss goodnight" every night he is gone. they are in a cute little container (not like this one, but I don't have a picture of my sisters, and this is a similar idea) and the kids know that is where Daddy's kisses come from. They also know that, when the candy kisses are gone, Daddy will be home to shower them with REAL kisses! It's so cute! On THIS particular blog, the blogger made them and gave them as gifts to her family for her cousin's deployment, and when their kisses run out, he will be home. =)
They asked the ultrasound technician to write on a paper if it was a boy or, girl, then they went to a store and picked out a boy outfit and a girl outfit. They gave the note to the clerk at the store and said they wanted to buy either the boy outfit or the girl outfit depending on what the note said. The clerk wrapped it in a box so they couldn't see which outfit they had purchased.They opened it with us on Christmas morning so we could all find out at the same time that they are having a girl!
