Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

I have many Ah-Ha moments when I realize that I know exactly what to do. Life at the Nuthouse has a tendency to be crazy, and most of the time that is just fine with me. Sometimes I feel like things are a bit to crazy even for me. I have been having a...

Why I do Thankful Thursdays

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

My Oldest Nut Turned 8!

It was actually last week…maybe longer, but not too much. I can’t believe that my oldest just turned 8 and I am so close to having my 5th. What a quick, short, long, happy, hug filled, chaotic, fun, crazy, sleepless, exciting, overwhelming, jam packed 8 years it has been! I feel like there is...

Wondering About A Few Things

Just how hard does a 5 year old have to flush the toilet to actually break off the handle? Why do neighborhood cats like to use my veggie garden as a litter box? How many times can a 2 year old brush his teeth in one day? How come my answering machine can answer...

A Decaf Tea Fruit Punch Cooler

One of the things I love the most about summer is making Sun Tea. A fruity decaffeinated tea with slices of fresh fruit makes a naturally sweet and refreshing drink for anytime of the day or night. The fruit adds enough sweetness that no sugar is needed for this punch at all. This Decaf...

Only one more month…

I can’t believe that we only have 1 more month until the 5th Little Nut joins The Nut House! I guess it is getting to the point where I should already be packed and have a freezer full of ready made dinners…but I don’t. It would also be nice if we had somewhere to...
