BOIRON cold and flu products

A few weeks ago I was sent an email to try Boiron products just in time for cold and flu season. I said yes, being that I have decided against the H1N1 flu vaccine. I did get my little's the flu shot, but it just seems that the H1N1 came out so fast and I don't know enough about it!

I received Chestal which is a cough syrup made with honey, oscillococcimun which is to reduce the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms, and Coldcalm, which says it temporarily relieves cold symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and minor sore throat.

The thing that I like best about these products is that they are all natural products! No more worrying if I am giving my kids too much of this, and too much of that! They are made for children 2 years and up, except for the Coldcalm, it is suggested for 3 and up, because it is small pellets for the kids to let dissolve on their tongue.

If you have a blog and would like the opportunity to try these products, visit this Boiron site! And if you don't have a blog, here is a coupon for $1.00 off coupon!

I don't know what is up with Blogger, but it won't let me cut and paste these pictures like I want to! Okay, now that I am done pitching my little fit...

I went with Noah's class on a field trip to a pumpkin patch. It is not as fancy as some other's that I have seen but we had fun. They had a hay maze, craft time, story time, got to pick a pumpkin, made apple cider in a press, had hot dogs for lunch, then got to roast marshmallows. We went on a hayride and it was fun! It was chilly that day and the patch was at the lake, so there was a cold breeze all day. But I am so glad I got to go!



I have not been blogging much...obviously! I really want to...I'm just not sure what to say. I guess I have been a rut. We are trying to get our "house" fixed up to sell. I say "house" because it is a little two bedroom townhouse. Andrew and I bought it about 3 months before we got married. Andrew stayed here and I moved in when we got married. I loved it then...hate it now! Well, hate is a strong word, I guess I should say we have majorly out-growned the house. I have all 3 kids in one bedroom now. It's okay, because the only thing they really do is sleep it the bedroom. The rest of the time they want to be out in the living room with us.

About 3 weeks ago I got rid of so much stuff! I had our van packed out and took it all to the Goodwill, just to get rid of it. I should have had a yard sale, per Dave Ramsey, but I just wanted it gone! We have NO room to store anything and it was driving me crazy! I still have some work to do...we need to have our roof looked at, and we really need to replace the carpet. Although we don't want to do that with the kids here! That is why it looks the way does. Spotted from "dippy cups!"

In other news, I went with Noah's class to a pumpkin patch on Monday. That was fun. We enjoyed a hayride, story time, a craft, and got to pick a pumpkin. Then we had lunch. It was fun and I'm glad I got to go.

I am really going to try to blog more often. It is the only way I can really keep up with what is new with my children for me to have later in life.


Menu Plan Monday

I have seen this around the blog-sphere for a while and since I have been doing weekly meal plans for a while, I thought I would start. It really helps to save money because I plan in advance what we are going to have and buy only what I need!

Monday- leftovers from Sunday. Potato soup, baked spaghetti, or chicken and dumplings

Tuesday- cubed pork, carrots, and mashed potatoes and gravy

Wednesday-Hamburgers or Tacos

Thursday-Noah had a soccer party, so probably will have sandwiches after school instead of a snack

Friday-Chicken tenders and spicy black bean soup

Saturday-Family Night! Pizza and bread sticks

Sunday-Italian chicken, rice, and broccoli


Sunday Session

It has been a few weeks since I did this. But it is back!

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

I also like this version found in The Message:

5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
don't sulk under his loving correction.
It's the child he loves that God corrects;
a father's delight is behind all this.
