Last year, I made an Advent calendar but was not too thrilled with it. Plus it was not very practical as I wanted it to be. I decided to do a simpler one this year and make it a bit more interactive. Our kids are still too young to be able to understand dates so a visual of some sort makes the most practical sense to
Who doesn’t like printables? I love them and I have been creating them for quite a while. But maybe not as often as I would like because sometimes, they could be time consuming. But when your first child enters school for the first time, you want to make it special. I have taken photos, thrown a small family party, and made some printables to celebrate.
Welcome back friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their family and friends celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and making memories. I have to admit, that our Christmas this year was very low key. If you remember, last year I was expecting and felt that I took on way too much than my poor body allowed. Plus we had just moved into
Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat kids everywhere are looking forward to what gifts they will receive. As parents, we want to load them up with lots and lots of gifts because we think it will make them happy! Toys are one of the most common gifts given to kids at Christmas time.

Creating cozy spots throughout the home during the Fall and Winter is a great way for kids to pass their days indoors. Our girls love to set up make-shift tents with blankets and play pretend hide-out. I once bought them a tend that took up a lot of room and did not hold up very well. So I have decided to create one so they

And as the Fall season has arrived with the winter to follow, it is definitely a good idea to gather craft supplies and store them all in one place for when they are stuck inside. Last week, I
Now that Fall is officially here and the weather is getting cooler, younger children who do not attend school will probably spend more time inside rather than outside. With this in mind, we like to prepare a list of supplies for crafts and activities that they can do indoors. These activities are not the everyday obvious activities like playing with toys, jumping, or playing with a ball.
It seemed like yesterday the kids were enjoying summer, now they are already back to school. At least in some districts. Where we live, there are about 3 or 4 schools in the area so I see kids already walking to and from school all the time. Whether your kids go out to school or are homeschooled, there are usually lots and lots of BACK
This is my first year making salt dough ornaments with the kids and I am totally loving how they are turning out! A few weeks ago, we did our salt dough ornaments with cookie cutter shapes and the kids are using them on their little Christmas tree in their bedroom. Then last week, they did some salt dough ornaments using their very own handprints. These
