More things you should know…

Just had to answer some of the comments from yesterday’s post:) I can’t leave inquiring minds hanging. SO…here’s more you obviously needed to know:)

1. YES–the cookbook I have my recipe page numbers connected to is the WIPHAN cookbook. I cook from it these days 90% of the time!!! It is MY FAVORITE cookbook and I’m NOT just saying that! I tell everyone it must be so great because so many rockin’ mommas our age put it together and we like 2 things–GOOD and EASY. But they are REALLY good!!! Everyone NEEDS a Wiphan cookbook. If you guys will order gobbles of them you will force us to re-order…and this one is a really good cookbook that EVERY mom in America should own. JUST sayin’. You can check ‘er out HERE.

2. Yes–the picture in the background I took…it is in Zambia at one of Wiphan’s schools…before the school was rebuilt. We should totally consider selling the images shouldn’t we? I love BIG pictures if you can’t tell by that one:)

3. Ethiopia pictures?? I absolutely have some. Lots of them…but not sure the quality as I was bouncing a baby on my hip during that trip;). BUT if you see one you likey in Isaac’s slideshow–just let me know!

4. MOVIES! Now that seriously would be a good topic. Okay…so I would LOOOVE to hear some of YOUR suggestions. What is YOUR favorite kid/family friendly movie that is appropriate for all ages??? That’s tricky right because they can be few and far between…but they are out there—I’ll be making my list to share too!

5. If you read in my last post about organizing and you can’t seem to find the book “Simply Organized” that I’ve talked about–you can’t find it because I’m an airhead. The book is not titled that…I just lose so many brain cells daily. It’s “Organized Simplicity” by Tsh Oxenreider. You can visit Tsh’s blog HERE and be inspired by her simplify projects. Sorry Tsh for botching your book’s title.

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!!! I think it’s time for Post 2 on one of the best years of my life next…don’t you???

I love the Wiphan cookbook! 🙂 It IS easy and most of the ingredients are things I normally have! I have given it for a couple of gifts too. Probably need to restock! 😉 We love WallE and Toy Story 3 here, and my H loved Tangled. It was really cute and clean (without some of the evil that is conveyed in some of the other princess movies) and comes out today! She has been earning it with good attitudes during her schoolwork time and thanks to my good friend Amazon, 🙂 it is coming today on its release date… so I will have one happy girl! 🙂

The Kilgoris Project does sell pictures on their website and it has been a good source of income for the schools and farm. So, yes sell your beautiful phots that you have taken in Zambia…I would love to buy them! We love Winn Dixie…great book and great story! We read the book and then watched the movie! So many lessons taught in it!

MISSY! I’m such a airhead!!! You’ll never find the book “Simply Organized” because the name of the book is “Organized Simplicity”!!!!!!!!! So sorry…the author probably wouldn’t like me botching her title!!!!!!! Anyway, it’s Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider!

I love the Wiphan cookbook, too! One more question:) A while back you mentioned another book that you got your Easter Tree idea from- now I can’t remember the title (??something about Homemaking??), but I remember looking on Amazon for it and it must be out of print. Any ideas on where to find it?

THANK YOU for posting this! I had those same questions after reading your last post! 😉 Also, would you consider photographing the table of contents of the Wiphan cookbook for a post? I would love to see what is inside. Thanks!

Yes – please consider selling prints of that beautiful image from the Wiphan school!

One of our favorite family-friendly movies is “Despicable Me”. It has a great message of adoption, God changing hearts (though it’s not attributed to God!) and is just all around funny! Absolutely no scary parts – even the villain is funny!

We struggle with movies as well. It’s really hard to find something that’s not scary or too suspenseful and doesn’t have any other negatives with something an hour or longer. We also usually watch movies in parts since they’re so long. Our kids are 6 and almost 4 and we feel we recently found the absolute best movie of all time for our family: Mary Poppins! Our kids love it and think it is so magical. The music and dancing is so much fun! Our son also loves Cars but at first he was scared of the combine. They also love Charlotte’s Web. It could bother some children since they’re trying to keep Wilbur from being killed. Also, Tigger and Pooh and a Musical Too which is just an hour. We watch parts of movies like the Aristocats, 101 Dalmations, Bambi, and others but my son who is almost 4 is very sensitive and gets scared easily. He wants to turn it off or fast forward anything scary. Thankfully he lets us know he is frightened. When he was two he was having nightmares. He had repeatedly been requesting this Disney sing-along video with a short part that had witches and ghosts. He was also requesting this book called Lamont the Lonely Monster. We removed both of those and not long after the nightmares stopped. Even Toy Story 3 scared him and we left our first movie theater experience early. I’m eager to hear other suggestions as well.
