Purging plastic

My husband and I are having a great time ridding our house of items that have toxic materials. We've taken a lot small steps by making our home safer. To list a few things, we use natural personal care products, cleaners, I tossed my plastic mixing bowls, plus a few other simple things.

Over the past year or so my husband and I made the effort of buying safer toys, but we didn't toss out the old. I guess, it was the semi-hoarder in me that couldn't let them go. I set that part of me aside and purged their rooms until I couldn't purge any more. 

Shortly after cleaning their room an unbelievable deal popped up on Amazon, the Plan Toys Eco Town was only $40! I quickly snatched up that deal. 

Amazon has been rolling out amazing green toy deals! I'm starting my storage for birthday presents!

Happy Birthday, Camille

Four years ago today, I was in labor with my angel, Camille Faye. She was born at 9:31 pm and died 10 minutes later, due to VACTERL syndrome. She was 18 inches long and weighed 3 lbs. 6 oz. I carried her for 40.5 weeks. Happy Birthday, my sweet angel.  

Here is a picture of her gravesite from yesterday.

Blessing in disguise

My husband losing his job has been a blessing in disguise. We've been spending lots of time together as a family. It's been wonderful!  We've played tons of board games, built forts, cuddled on the couch while watching Toy Story 3....and Monster Jam, and a lot of good 'ol fashioned family fun! 

I've scored so many great deals online since Black Friday! The best has been the awesome Mattel deals! Hot Wheels diecast, play sets, and trick tracks are HUGE in my house. I got unbelievable deals! I can't wait to see my  boys' eyes light up on Christmas! They are going to be so ecstatic! I'm having a hard time shopping for my youngest son, he will be 8 1/2 months on Christmas. I've been scouring the internet for presents for him. He's incredibly hard to shop for since my other two boys are five and two. I still have a majority of their toys from they were younger.

My husband had a interview with Coca-Cola a few days ago. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he gets the job. He obviously has lots of experience in the beverage industry. They don't need someone to start until two more weeks. It's fine by me! My oldest son wants to go to the St. Louis Science Center to see the Grossology exhibit. Next Tuesday, would have been my daughter's 4th birthday. We'll be going to her grave site to decorate it for her birthday and Christmas. Our town is having it's Christmas parade next week.  I'm sure there are many other things to do with it being the best time of the year!

Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
