I haven't branched out to include inflatables yet, but with a site like this, I'm getting mighty enticed!  I love the Uncle Sam (he's cute!), and I bet he'd be a bit hit in our neighborhood!

Picking up the Tab

The difference in price between what makes a Kindergartner happy, and what makes a teen happy, when we're out and about at the mall.

One drink and a ride on the new thing-a-mabobby they've installed for the little guy: $2.99

Pretty nails, because 'Oh please, please, please Mommy, I would love to have that done,' for the teen: (price undisclosed to preserve the illusion that I'm sane). :)

Label Daddy Discount!

Disclosure: I will receive a store credit for helping promote this discount. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. knows labels!

With four kids in the family, labels have saved us many times from losing items. Add to that fact that three out of four of our children have pretty unique names, and the labels have been downright fan-tas-tic.  My youngest was notorious for losing hats and gloves this year at school.  All such items make their way to a Lost & Found table in the school cafeteria. Many of those items looks exactly alike, so it's easy for someone to mistakenly take something that really is not theirs at all. We quickly discovered that's not so if you've got a label attached to it.  I used labels for boots, shoes, clothes, winter hats and gloves, coats, book bags, etc. You name it, I labeled it.

Now it's almost the end of the school year, and I'm out of labels. :)  Luckily, LabelDaddy has a large selection of items.  Whether you're selecting a cool summer camp label pack, sports label packs, or just general labels (to name a few of their many options) you're bound to find exactly what you're looking for on their website.

All labels are super durable, peel-and-stick, and they are dishwasher, washer, dryer, and microwave safe. They are also UV resistant. labels are all made in the USA, and the best part? You get to design them yourself. They've got some great Disney labels, Marvel labels, and sports labels too (I've got my eye on the Detroit Tigers labels).

All labels are shipped worldwide, and right now you can get 10% off any order by entering the code:
USFAMILY10 at checkout.

To Beard, or Not to Beard? That is the Question!

My second-oldest son has been sporting facial hair on and off (mostly on) for the last few years.

20 years ago!
In fact, here he was the last time I saw him without any hair on his face (Kidding!).

I think this was actually the last time I saw him with no beard of sorts, a few years ago when he graduated from high school (2011).

Full Beard, 2011
Since then, he's had a beard,

That boy's all wet! (cuz he just got done swimming ;) ).
Goatee 2012
or goatee, for quite a long time now.

With his niece. This picture makes me laugh, he's a good uncle. :)
Light Beard - 2013
Even when he came home to visit at Christmas time last year, he was sporting the facial hair (which his niece thought was fun to touch, or grab hold of, hahahaha!). 

No beard, 2014!
So...when he sent this picture over to me in an e-mail yesterday, I was so surprised!!!  No beard at all, and I love it!

He always looks handsome to me, you know the mom thing and all, but I love how he looks when he's clean-shaven. He looks his age. :)

He DID just have a 21st birthday in March, maybe that has something to do w/the new look? You don't have to try to look older, when officially your driver's license says you're a man. ;)  Not that there would be any reason at all to try and look older than you were, if you weren't 21. *ahem*

Totally lovin' the new look, JG!
