A Christmas tradition, like The Polar Express, our own version. Each year we hide the “Golden Tickets” in our kids’ beds. My husband starts the bedtime routine, while I prepare little bags of popcorn and hot chocolate drinks and place them in the car, oh and don’t forget to have Christmas music playing in the car too! When the kids climb into bed, they will find the ticket hidden under their covers.The kids then grab their slippers and head for by WeAreAllMadHere

Egg shells with cress 'hair': a fun activity for kids. Just sow organic seeds directly into seed raising mix & mist with water daily to keep moist. When the cress has grown into sprouts, give the kids a pair of scissors so they can give their grass head guy/gal a 'haircut' (fun way to get them to eat nutritious sprouts too!) | The Micro Gardener by cathleen

≈Don't be a Crab≈ They say that when you put a bunch of crabs in a bucket, there is a very strange dynamic that happens. If one of the crabs starts to climb the side of the bucket to escape, the other crabs will pull that crab back down into the bucket with them. Sort of a one for all and all for one concept even in the face of doom. There are 2 kinds of women who rise to the top, one steps on other women to get there and the other pulls other by dominique

I like this one too.  According to her hairstylist, “In the back it angles up—it was cut at the nape. I love it when it’s slightly angled. The angle adds a modern edge to it. To keep it modern, it’s not too blunt but also not too layered. It kind of has a choppier edge. The ends are cut into, but mainly they’re all one length.”  He also said for styling, “A haircut at this length can tend to be a little round. You want to keep it a little more by Teressa williams

Basic Striped Crochet Hat Pattern - When I teach my Beyond Basics crochet classes I like to incorporate fun projects to help students learn the techniques I cover. This basic striped crochet hat pattern helps give my students a better understanding of gauge, working in the round, clean color changes, increasing, and creating a ribbed effect with post stitches. They get to learn all this while also creating something they can actually wear or give as a gift! by alberta

Torre del Mangia - Siena, Italy. When the bell tower of Siena, Italy was built it was one of the tallest towers in Italy. The height was exactly the same as the cathedral, indicating that the church and government has the same power. Today it is a great tourist attraction as we climb the 400+ stairs to the top. by graciela

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea
