Easy Christmas Cupcakes

Sometimes I wonder what I get myself into. Signing up for too many things then regretting it immediately seems to be the chapter of my life lately. My eager beaver self decided to sign up to bake for the Church bake sale in the middle of a busy busy weekend. Between out of town guests…

From the Desk of Santa Claus

Sending a personalize letter from Santa Claus is one of the ways I can communicate to my children on how proud I am of them, and how kindness can result (sometimes) to reward.

Spin on Advent Calendars with 25 Days of Giving

Tis the season to be giving back! If you know me, you’ll know that I love the Holidays season. It isn’t because of the presents, parties, or the amazing shopping sales, but it’s a holiday that brings people together, reminding us how blessed we really are. I was never really warm on the idea of…

Best Ever Homemade Cheese Crackers

Cheese is a permanent staple in my kitchen. I have them in various forms and types. Whether it is shredded, sliced, block cheese, or romano, cheddar, jack, feta, mozzarella, I have it all. My husband and I agreed that the one thing we both cannot give up in life is cheese (by the way, this…

Spatial Relationships Activity

Summer has come and gone so quickly this time around. We spent so much time in the sun, stayed up past bedtime, and tried so many new fun activities. Keeping my monkeys constantly entertained has been a challenge specially when working from home. While we had a plethora of activity books, arts and crafts, and…

Arya’s My Little Pony Birthday Party

My littlest girl turned two! To watch her develop greater independence, form sentences, bloom into her own little self has been one of the most rewarding experiences as a mom.

Mackenzie’s Paw Patrol Birthday Party

Paw Patrol! Paw Patrol! Be there on a double! Is this song running on repeat in your head too? If so, then join the club! We recently hosted Mackenzie’s 4th Birthday Party. This was a tricky one. As we are in the process of building our home, we didn’t have a venue nor a lot of…

DIY Easter Bunny Headband

Spring break was good to us. We played, napped, and I had the time to experiment with new dinner ideas. More importantly, I mustered up the creativity and time to create these adorable bunny Easter headbands. The best part of this was that everything was from the dollar store. Honestly I saw many of these like-minded…

Valentine Marshmallows Recipe

I have a tendency to either over commit or do nothing at all. This Valentine’s Day, I inadvertently stumbled into the former. In addition to creating Valentines for Mackenzie’s classmates and teachers, I signed up to provide a special snack for the class, as well as sign her up for flower arranging (ON VALENTINE’S DAY! Clearly I…

Valentine Printables for Preschoolers

Since M started school, I’ve been getting my gears ready for Valentine day gift ideas. There are SO many great ideas out there but it was hard to find ideas that appeased the 2.5-6 age group, with a mix of boys and girls, as well as a no sugar policy. Getting M to help assemble…
