little logger

Saturday Layton insisted on wearing his suspenders to his Nana's house. And last night while we were eating dinner, Layton took his broccoli, stood it up and then said, " The trees are falling down!" as he knocked it over. Yep, he's the spitting image of his daddy! :)In more self sufficiency news, I got all the stuff to make my own laundry detergent (instead of buying it.) I also was in the market for a stick blender. Wal-Mart had them for $20 but I scored mine at the second hand store for $5. Yahoo!
And on a side note, I made some yummy homemade caramel corn yesterday using Kim's recipe. It is fabulous! I used raw peanuts instead of almonds becuse it was what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing that Kim!

What a very handsome young man! Making laundry soap is on my "To Do List", maybe someday.:)

I make my own laundry detergent too. I love the savings compared to those pricey bottles of detergent. Plus it's great if you have super sensitive skin like I do. A batch lasts so long and it costs pennies per load. I also make my own deodorant. Very easy and works too!

P.S. Layton looks adorable too! I love the suspenders.

I love the suspenders! My boy's had a pair like those that said "Midget Logger"...I was so sad when no one could wear them anymore!

I'm glad you enjoyed the caramel corn!
