Sweet Extravaganza WEEK SEVEN and winner

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

Our winner for WEEK SIX is: Jamie from Bubbles & Bath Water congratulations!

Jaime said...
My husband is from England and LOVES "Fairy Cakes" (a.k.a cupcakes to us Americans)! His Aunty makes them from scratch and at a moments notice whenever requested. Being a new wife and trying to live up to Aunty Mary, I made my box mix cupcakes with canned frosting and they were a hit! He couldn't believe how good they were and then he asked..."how did you make these?" I thought about taking the credit but didn't want to hide the boxes for the next 50 years, so I fessed up! So I guess the best are made from the heart (box or no box).



Week Seven

The Cupcake Courier is proudly sponsoring a 12 week event for Mother’s! We know all you Mom’s have cupcakes to bring to class, and to parties... what better way to safely and fashionably if we may add to all your events!

We will run this weeks until next Sunday June 8th
Make sure you adhere to our contest rules and please leave a valid email address if yours is not in your profile.

My kid thinks she is an animal????




Shanda's crazy story of her day today! So we thought we would share some personal things about ourselves! Well, I wanted to see who else has a crazy kid like mine. Today Nevaeh begged and begged to play outside and so I told her she had to stay in our yard and not go near the road. Oh yeah...she had to go outside in her tutu also. First she ran in the raod to get a kitty and it gave me a darn heart attack. I made her stay in for a long time as a punishment and once I knew she understood how bad that scared Mommy.




Then I let her go outside again for a little bit. She keeps coming in and out of the front door. I asked her wear her shorts went cause all she had on was her underwear and tutu...she said she pee'd in them by accident. So I look out in the driveway and there is a puddle. Not a big deal cause she never has potty accidents. But I couldn't figure out why her undies and shorts aren't wet. Well, later on I figured it out....daddy was going to walk her down the street to get some ice cream. She asked if she could wait for him outside. I said ok, and she went outside. I look out the window and see her stripping down to her bare buns!!!!!! I couldn't believe it, I yelled at her to get into the house and she just looked shocked. I couldn't believe it! When I asked her what she was doing she told me she had to go potty. I told her you don't pee in the yard, only animals do.




Now, I know my Mom told me that when I was her age, I would pee in the sandbox because I wanted to play with the kids so bad. She couldn't get me to come in for anything! So I thought I would talk to Nevaeh about it and ask her if she new that the neighbors don't want to see her privees! Nor do they want to see her potty in the yard. All she said is that it was an accident and she wanted to be an animal! Goodness gracious...my little pumpkin. Even though it bothered me...she really doesn't understand all the things that go through a Moms mind when you see your kid doing that. But, then I look at her face and I can't be mad! I love my kid to death! Even if she wants to be an animal! Anyone esle having a day like mine?????

Greeting Card Cookies offer a ton of styles for any occasion.

Hot Planet Needs Cool Kids

Meet Julie Hall: An Interview with the Author of A Hot Planet Needs Cool Kids


What made you write this book?
Quite honestly I was feeling depressed and overwhelmed by global warming and the lack of response to it. I was reading more and more about it and, as many of us do, feeling helpless to do anything meaningful to fight the problem other than the lifestyle things I’ve done for years, like compost, recycle, buy organic, use a push mower, help animals, ride my bike, and so on. Especially as a parent, I was feeling deeply concerned for my daughter and what she and her generation were inheriting. And then I found myself writing a book to educate kids on the topic and motivate them to get involved.

I suppose I was impelled forward by a desire to help and a desire to make myself feel better by helping. As with all the writing I do, writing this book was a learning journey for me, a way to teach myself more about the topic and to feel involved with it in an active, positive way. Given the subject matter, immersing myself in the research and writing was not easy, but in the end it was cathartic and gratifying.

Global warming is a heavy topic. Why do you think it’s important to talk to kids about it?
It’s necessary to talk to our kids about it precisely because it is such an important and serious issue. I don’t believe in lying to kids, either directly or by omission. Parents who think they are protecting their kids by depriving them of awareness or information are doing their children a great disservice. Often what these parents are really doing is trying to protect themselves, and by shielding their kids they are perpetuating their own denial. The only protection from global warming is awareness, action, and fundamental change. That is the unfortunate fact.

When we do not talk about climate change with our kids and do not respond to the problem appropriately at home through lifestyle changes, we are communicating fear and/or indifference. We are also depriving our kids of the opportunity to help make things better. The fact is, our kids know climate change is happening, and they are scared. Parents need to help their kids handle their fears and move beyond them into positive action.

What advice do you have for parents about how to talk about climate change with their kids?
I would say the place to start is examining your own thoughts and feelings about it and educating yourself. Many adults have told me that they learned a lot from reading my book. I actually wrote it with parents and teachers in mind as well as kids. My intention was to present a clear, straightforward explanation of the major causes and effects of climate change, a sampling of the good work people are doing to reduce it, and an inspiring call to action for families and schools.

Obviously how parents discuss climate change depends on the child’s age. Kids themselves are usually your best guide as to how much they are ready to hear, and they will let you know with questions. With very young kids it is good to talk about the positive things you are doing in your household to help the earth. It is also so important to teach and model humility and appreciation for the natural world, for other living things, for Earth’s natural processes. As I say in the book, if kids care about the earth and living things, they will be far more motivated to work to protect them. They will also be much happier and more whole beings, so connecting kids with nature and with their animal selves is an all around great thing to do. With older kids, help them understand what is happening.

My book is a perfect tool to help older kids understand the science and social issues around climate change. And it is full of positive actions that parents and kids can do together to work. My hope is that parents will read the book with their kids, discuss it, and work together on the activities to really bring about change at home and in the community.

In the book you ask kids to identify fears they have about global warming and consider possible solutions. What are your biggest fears about global warming?
Well one of my biggest fears is that we won’t do enough about it in time to turn the tide. It is too late to prevent it from happening, because it has already started to happen, and it appears that what is already in motion cannot be reversed. But there is still time for us to prevent it from becoming much worse. We have an opportunity to learn from our mistakes and reinvent ourselves. One thing the human species has demonstrated throughout history is how extraordinarily adaptive we are.

My hope is that that adaptivity will emerge in new and trans formative ways that will make our lives ultimately happier and more meaningful by reconnecting us with the earth and our animal selves. Kids especially are full of creative energy and are flexible and capable of great growth and change.

Congressman Jay Inslee described your book as a “vision of change.” How would you characterize your vision?
While my book provides lots of ideas about how to fight climate change both on a societal and personal level, it is not simply a catalog of actions. Nor is it merely a science lesson. The book expresses my belief that kids (and their adults) need to reconnect with the earth to heal it and heal ourselves. It isn’t enough just to switch to renewable energy sources. We need to rein-vision and rearrange our lives: how we farm, how we eat, how we organize our communities, how we set up our homes, how we see ourselves in relation to other living things.

Particularly in so-called developed countries, we need a shift in values away from imbalanced consumption toward balanced living. My book challenges and encourages kids, parents, and teachers to change their thinking as well as their behavior. It helps kids examine their assumptions about their place in the world and about what matters to them.

What advice do you have for kids who want to get involved to fight global warming?
Read my book! Do what you’re good at. If you like to make movies, make one about helping the earth. If you like to organize things, put together a green event in your school or community. If you like animals, help at a shelter or create animal habitat in your yard or community. Another thing is believe in yourself and believe in the future. Life is resilient. Earth has endured many changes, and we humans are part of the natural order. I would also tell kids to get started now!

All of the Mommies have been extremely busy! Here's what we've been up to:

Fabulous Tip Friday

Today over at From Dates to Diapers, I talked about how I get the kiddos involved in helping with chores around the house. If you make it a game, anything can be fun!

Is there a not-so-fun activity that YOU have made into a game to encourage your kiddos (or maybe yourself) to get it done? We want to hear about it!

Beeyoutiful

At Beeyoutiful , they believe that each individual is responsible for their own health. It is not a doctor's responsibility to keep you in good health. Instead they are a tremendous resource, especially for those times when urgent care is required. But, they are only one of many resources. And the tools they use, while powerful, are not the only tools available. But a tool is worthless unless one knows how to use it.

The Mommies believe that we should all take care of ourselves and should put ourselves first. If we don't take care of ourselves how can we take care of our families?

We were lucky to try the Supermom. A High potency multi-vitamin with Spirulina and green super foods. Multiple vitamins help to bridge the nutrient gap in our daily diets. In today's world of processed foods and fast-paced lifestyles, many of us do not get the daily recommended allowance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Multiple vitamins can help fill in the areas lacking in our diets, and are formulated to provide a broad range of nutrition in a synergistic manner. SuperMom contains a huge array of vitamins and minerals essential for good health. SuperMom also contains Spirulina which increases the potency of the vitamin.


We also each got to try out the Superkids for our children. The SuperKids formula is similar to Beeyoutiful’s other “Super” products but without the iron.* And there’s no synthetic dyes or sugar to hype up your kids. Derived from real foods, every bottle of SuperKids is chock-full of antioxidants like Vitamins C and E, bioflavanoids, lycopene, and other carotenes to wage war against the free radicals assaulting your child’s body every time she eats processed food or breathes polluted air.

Sippi Grip

Sari Crevin, a mom, created SippiGrip when she became frustrated with her 1 year old son throwing his sippy cup to the floor anytime he was in a stroller, high chair or car seat. The sippy cup often became dirty and Sari was tired of always having to pick it up. She developed something that she needed to use and realized that other moms might need it as well. Soon Sari was passing the Sippigrip out to her Mom's Group friends to get their feedback and test the product. After getting the seal of approval she decided to offer it more extensively in different colors and patterns. Thus became the Sippigrip!


There are three fabulous colors of SippiGrips from which to choose!


It is a simple design that simply works!

  • Fits any brand or size cup/bottle
  • Adjustable in length
  • Grip material to prevent slipping
  • Washable & Durable
  • Makes YOUR life easier!
