I’m BACK……



My 1st blog post in FOREVER, should be an exciting time.  But as I write this first post I feel nervous about even doing this.  It’s a sad feeling to just not know, or to feel like you’d be judged.  But oh well, I’m jumping in and doing it anyways.

Brown Haus Kids blog will be a bit of everything, just like it was before.  I have 4 wonderful and beautiful children that I will share, and share often.  I’m a proud MOM.  Just think, last post was when I just had Krayden and Maddox!!   I also love to craft, bake, and do anything fun with my kids, Stitch Fix will also be present!  I’ve just received my 1st Fix, so I will be posting all about my experience (which was GREAT).

To start I’ll share a little about me and my family of 6.  We live in IL, right on the state line.  We’ve lived here for about 2yrs now, and before this we were in KY, NC, and IN.  My husbands job tends to move us around a bit. But, who doesn’t love an adventure and constantly packing up our family of 6? (Do you sense the sarcasm there?)  As I said before, I have 4 kids: Krayden is my oldest 6, Maddox 4, Raleigh 2, and Sawyer 10 month, TODAY!  Krayden just had his 6th birthday party this past Saturday, so I’ll be sure to share a post all about his “Camp Krayden”.

I truly hope you enjoy following me and joining in the crazy fun that my family is!


Here is an updated family photo:

We had a Christmas last night and boy oh boy did my kids get toys!!  They liked them all but one they LOVED:  TOBBLES

These things are amazing and fun for both boys!

Six spheres nest inside each other, each a different weight allowing for endless configurations. Deconstruct your tower and watch the pieces wobble. Flip the spheres upside down and build it all over again.  Spin the pieces round and round, stack by size, weight or color the possibilities are endless.  Little hands will delight in the never-ending discovery of Tobbles.  The wobbling motion of each piece encourages a sense of touch while stacking the spheres high to form colorful creations will develop hand-eye coordination with the added bonus of discovering balance.  An acute sense of visual spatial awareness develops as children quickly discover color and size sequence as they explore the many ways Tobbles can be stacked and balanced.  Tobbles is at home in the board room, too!  A design-savvy conversation piece that will provide hours of abstract fun on any desk. Ages 1 and up. WATCH THE VIDEO:

I’m so glad the my MIL bought them early, because as I’ve shared my fun people have been looking around and they are SOLD OUT!!

If you happen to get your hands on one buy it and buy it quick!! It is wonderful!

Here are my boys enjoying their new “learning” toy
