Greetings from your President

One of our readers shared this piece of information with us and we thought it was too cool to pass up so, we wanted to share it with you!

You can send in your babies name, address, and birth date to the White House and in return they will send you back a greeting from the President and First Lady. What a great way to document the time your child was born. Such a great keepsake for their baby book.

Mail your information too:

Greetings Office
Room 39

Saddles and Rattles

A Hoe Down Baby Shower

Strap on your saddle and grab your rattle as we celebrate the little cowboy on his way.
Themed baby showers is our topic for April and this week we are featuring a Saddles & Rattles baby shower. Tell your guest to dress western and offer a western bbq for lunch or dinner.
This would be a great theme shower to do with couples. 
Here are some great entertaining and decor ideas to keep the theme of your Rattles & Saddles Shower:

-Serve chips & snacks in cowboy hats. 
-Use mason jars to serve your favorite beverage. 
-Use bandanna style table cloths.
-Use a silver pen and write guest names on horseshoes for place cards.
-Fill cowboy boots with flowers to create centerpieces on your tables.
-Use galvanized horse troughs and fill with ice to place your beverages in.

We hope these are some fun ideas to get you started on creating that perfect themed shower for your little cowboy.

Happy Earth Day

With today being Earth Day, we wanted to share some of our favorite products with you that we have found. Starting with gdiapers. gDiapers consist of a washable, cotton outer pant and a plastic free flushable refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. They come in a variety of colors and sizes small, medium, and large. Unlike other diapers, these break down in 50-150 days!! Check them out here.

Method home just released their new baby product line today!! I can't wait to pick some of their products up on my next trip to Target. The lotion is 95% natural and the body wash is 99% natural. These squeaky green products are made from rice milk + mallow! Be sure to check them out!!

And for the moms....Method Home also has a great reusable market tote! Not only is it stylish, with the slogan, "Plastic Bag Rehab" at $15 it is an affordable decision, so you never have to decide paper or plastic!

Do you Frop?

We just came across this neat contraption. It is called the Fropper by International Playthings. It is for children 18 months+. The two level seat has a spring system that allows your little one to bounce as he strolls down the sidewalk. It also folds to a fraction of its size, which makes it great for storing.

Where was this when we were kids? This looks like a lot of fun. It retails for $69 and you can find it here

With summer on the horizon this would be a blast for your little one. Not only does it sound cool, it looks cool too! So, get to Froppin'!!
