Thanksgiving Cards {and Q & A}

Thank you for all of the lovely comments on Harbor turning three! Many of you left comments for the first time {So nice to "meet" you!} and all of them were very heart-warming. I love my blogging friends and appreciate your kindness!

There were many comments on my homemade laundry detergent post. There seemed to be a great deal of interest on the subject and I will tell you what I can.
The recipe came from the Duggar's first book, 20 And Counting. I'm assuming because they use it for their family, it would not prove to be harmful to a baby's skin. They have a couple of babies in their household, I believe.  : )

Yes! It is safe for your HE washers!
You can read about it from a few other bloggers here and here and here.

Harbor and I love a little project and there is nothing better
 - am I right-
than receiving snail mail from a  friend?
So, we made a handful of Thanksgiving cards.

Harbor loves any project that involves sitting and creating something with his hands.
He is at a fun age!

Harbor loves to help- whether it is crafting or cooking. He wants in on the action!


We were both pretty proud and are excited for friends and family to see how "big" the turkey is!
Harbor's hands are growing a little tiny bit everyday. : )

Happy Thanksgiving!

We recently had Harbor's 3rd birthday party and it was fun, but very windy! I hope to post those pictures soon.
In other news, we have made a last minute decision to travel home for Thanksgiving. We will be driving 30 hours round trip with a three year old and a dog to spend 48 hours in Arkansas, including sleeping time! Eek! It will be a lot of driving, but so worth it for two afternoons and nights with our loved ones.
