It's All About the Bows!

BijouCo's first spring launch began January 27th. Here is my contribution. Thank goodness I was able to take pictures before the big snow! It was 44 degrees though and Madeline was COLD, but I still think she is cute, even when shivering! LOL

Happy Birthday Wyatt!

My baby turned four last Sunday! I can not believe how time flies! He is such a big boy now. We bought him a Leapster2 and he loves it. We went bowling with the Ball's and had a great time. I have not uploaded the pictures... yet.

Cold, Cold, Cold

It has been so cold! With the exception of a quick grocery run on Monday the kids have not left the house since last Friday!!! They are having a good time though playing with their toys and getting on mommy's nerves-LOL.

Some good news!

It looks like people will be able to resell their children's clothing regarding the new CPSIA regulations (sigh of relief). Not sure about custom boutique clothing so we will have to wait and see. Fingers crossed!

We received great news from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), clarifying the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act that goes into effect on February 10, 2009. From the statement - "The new law requires that domestic manufacturers and importers certify that children's products made after February 10 meet all the new safety standards and the lead ban. Sellers of used children's products, such as thrift stores and consignment stores, are not required to certify that those products meet the new lead limits, phthalates standard or new toy standards." "The new safety law does not require resellers to test children's products in inventory for compliance with the lead limit before they are sold. However, resellers cannot sell children's products that exceed the lead limit and therefore should avoid products that are likely to have lead content... Those resellers that do sell products in violation of the new limits could face civil and/or criminal penalties." We always have been and will continue to be committed to buying & selling product that meets the standards supplied to us by the CPSC. To continue to ensure the safety of your children, we will not buy or sell items noted in the statement - "recalled children's products, children's products that will contain lead such as children's jewelry, painted wooden or metal toys, flimsily made toys that are easily breakable into small parts and dolls and stuffed toys that have buttons, eyes, noses or other small parts that are not securely fastened and could present a choking hazard for young children.

For Christmas I received new bed pillows and sheets and that prompted me to change my bedroom decor. It has been black and cream toile for the last 6.5 years and I have had enough of it! LaNae helped me pick out a new set and curtains from Target and I LOVE it! Today I am going to look for some wall art that will match. We are going to put the house back on the market soon... I have a lot of work to do to get this abode ready. I will post pictures of the fnished room .

I need a vacation from my vacation!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas and left the evening of the 26th for Florida! 2 days in the van with a 6 month old, 2.5 year old and almost 4 year old... let's just say there are memories!!! We had a great time hanging out with Grandpa and Grandma Kemp, the Thomas family and Gastineau family. We sent 2 days at the Magic Kingdom and the kids LOVED it! We are planning a return trip when Luke is a little older. On the way home we stopped in AL to see Matt's family. Not only do I have a lot of unpacking to do, but all of Christmas is still up. Hopefully I will get it down before Valentine's Day! LOL
