Simple green cleaning tips for the kitchen

GreenCleanI’m always trying to find greener ways to clean things, especially in the kitchen. When Little Pumpkin Doodle came along I was out of control. I had hand sanitizer everywhere and was constantly wiping things down with vinegar and water. Now that I’m a little more laid back, I thought I’d share a few simple green cleaning tips for the kitchen. [Read more…]

Mommy’s Organics “Endangered Species” Applesauce Muffins

Applesauce Hope you had a nice weekend! We have been busy the last couple of weeks.  Little Pumpkin Doodle was hit by accident in the eye at day care.  She’s doing fine now;  I was worried she’d have a scar, but I’m happy to say that I think she’ll end up scar free. Then two weekends ago we were is L.A. to visit Hubby’s brother that was visiting from the Big Apple.

We watched the olympics off and on this past weekend. We let Little Pumpkin Doodle watch the opening ceremony, but she lost interest very quickly, as did I. What did you think of the opening ceremony?  However, I thought the part with Daniel Craig/James Bond taking the Queen to the Olympic stadium was hilarious! [Read more…]

Little Pumpkin Doodle Update

Hope you’re ready for the weekend, I know I am! I thought I would update this posting since it’s been awhile. Here are some updates on Little Pumpkin Doodle’s favorite things as she grows.

WHAT SHE’S LEARNING: French and Gymnastics

FAVORITE SONGS:B52’s Love Shack, Who let the Dogs, Le Petite Train and Heads UP, by Steve Vai

BOOKS: All things Fancy Nancy, Pirates of the Sea and Dog, by Matthew Van Fleet

SHOWS: Secret Agent Oso and Jungle Junction

FUNNY QUIRKS. She still names all her dresses, and her all time fave is Laura Ashley (she wears it all the time). Her new funny quirk is stopping and doing this dance where she shakes her hands and drops to the ground, for some reason she thinks it’s hilarious.

FAVORITE PAST TIME: Ballet and reading her books.

Thank you for your readership:)

Stay tuned for more to come.

Fun in the Flower Fields

Yesterday we went the Carlsbad Flower Fields to visit the beautiful gardens featuring Ranunculus. I’m obviously not a photographer, so the photos don’t do the flower fields justice. Little Pumpkin Doodle was so happy, not only did she get to see the flowers, but we took a wagon tractor tour (tractors are LPD’s favorite all terrain vehicle) provided by the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum. For those of you that live in San Diego or plan on visiting, the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum is a lot of fun for the little ones! [Read more…]
