    Way to go, I made scratch pancakes this past sunday, (it was a recipe I found online) and the kids absolutely loved it, they had the pancakes eaten before I could sit down and eat mine. Its amazing how much we find we can make, when we just do a lil research!!

    My family loves from scratch pancakes. I love choco chip ones personally. They always make such a great surprise. Good for you!

    I'll have to check out those novels for my 7 year old. He really wants to start reading chapter books, but I'm having a hard time finding ones that he is interested in. So thanks for sharing!

    Maybe try spinning your laundry an extra spin when the washer cycle ends before you put it into the dryer. Before we bought our new dryer, I used to do this and it helped alot!

    Her dance instructor gave it to her as a christmas present. Now I need to look for more in the series, she enjoyed it. These books are the new series and I think are for a little younger then the original bailey school kids, but I am still sooo proud of her.

    I remember going to the book sales and saying I cant wait till Robyn can read these beginner novels and stuff, I soo cannot believe that she is doing that already.

    The Baily School Kids are an awesome young adult series. I think that is really good for a 6 year old. I was a school librarian for many years and I think it is great. If she is enjoying the series, make sure she reads them all. Reading is the best thing for young children (and adults) and if she can find a series that she likes....all the better. Good for you by introducing her to the series!

    Thanks Debbie and Candy.

    I am not sure I will get mine all completed today either, it snowed last night....dh is gone till tomorrow night, and I have a huge driveway that I need to get shoveled. The oldest got school in the afternoon, not sure how to go about doing the driveway weather to take both younger kids outside and do it, or wait till the baby goes to bed and take the middle child and the monitor out so I can hear the baby when he wakes. UGH

    I know some of the sales that I see here are so amazing. I am doing better with some things tho, and have gotten some really good sales by combining coupons. It kinda sucks that u cannot use coupons.
