Since having my baby in September, I have been reminded of how many diapers a baby goes through in a day! Crazy! I’ve also been using all of the gifts people gave us at his birth. So when ediapercakes.com contacted me about sharing their product with my readers I agreed. I know how important the essentials are with a new baby and was excited to see they had Disney themed diaper cakes on their site.
If you are planning a baby shower for a friend or family member, these diaper cakes would make an adorable centerpiece and provide the new mom with essentials she will need on a daily basis! Ediapercakes.com are the only ones who make diaper cakes out of children’s books. Some of the brands used in their cakes are: Pamper Swaddlers, Gund, Kid’s Preferred, & TY. Each diaper cake is different, but there are usually 4-6 different baby products in each diaper cake (socks, mittens, brush & comb, manicure set, wash cloth, pacifier, or spoon).
Now, you can enter to win a $25 gift certificate towards your purchase at ediapercakes.com! The giveaway is for U.S. residents only.
What a fabulous quote! There are so many reasons I admire Mr. Disney and this quote makes me like him even more. I wish I believed this quote, oh maybe 25 years ago! At 38 years old, that would have made me 13. What a horrible age. Junior High, awkward, hormonal, in between, puberty, yuck. I did not like myself, was always trying to be someone else and trying to fit in. Maybe if I had just tried to like myself more, I would have realized how unique God made me. The older I get, the more I truly believe in this quote. Even though there are things I would like to change about myself, I do
like love myself and am glad I am not like anyone else. I hope and pray that I can pass this on to my boys.
My friends at Garden Grocer put together some tried and true tips that will help you have a safe and happy holiday season, especially if you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World!
Use your home burglar alarm system.
If you plan to travel for the holidays don’t discuss your plans with strangers this includes announcing your plans on social media sites.
Do not leave a spare key in a “hiding place”. Burglars know where to look.
Have a trusted friend or neighbor to keep an eye on your home.
Holiday Decorating & LightingKeep candles away from decorations and do not use candles to decorate Christmas trees.
Carefully inspect new and previously used light strings and replace damaged items before plugging lights in. Do not overload extension cords.
Turn off all light strings and decorations before leaving the house or going to bed or use a timer.
When purchasing an artificial tree, look for the label “Fire Resistant.”
If a live tree is more to your liking, check for freshness. A fresh tree is green, needles are hard to pull from branches and when bent between your fingers, needles do not break.
Be sure to keep the stand filled with water, because heated rooms can dry live trees out rapidly.
Make sure the base is steady so the tree won’t tip over easily.
Holiday EntertainingBefore you start your holiday cooking – test your smoke alarms.
Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home fires in the U.S. When cooking for your guests, remember to keep an eye on the stove and oven.
FireplacesBefore lighting any fire, check to make sure the flue is open. Remove all greens, papers, and other decorations from fireplace area.
Do not burn wrapping papers in the fireplace. A flash fire may result as wrappings ignite suddenly and burn intensely.
Children and PetsPoinsettias although absolutely beautiful – they are poisonous to humans and animals, so keep them well out-of-reach, or avoid having them.
Watch children and pets around space heaters or the fireplace. Do not leave a child or pet unattended.
