Today marks the first day of summer vacation. Yesterday, B said farewell to kindergarten. I’m looking forward to having him home with us throughout the weekdays for a bit. I have a feeling the next two months are, unfortunately, going to pass by in the blink of an eye. Between our mini vacation next week, […]
Day three of our activity advent calendar called for making plates from peppermint candies. I’d seen several tutorials around on Pinterest, and it seemed easy enough. Bake at 350* for 8 minutes and allow to cool. It was quite easy, and the kids had a blast. We baked ours in spring form pans to help […]
Hands down, this has been the most awesome Christmastime, and it’s only beginning. My five year old has been unbelievably excited about EVERYTHING Christmas related, from our nativity sets, to the lights, to Elvis (our elf on the shelf), to making decorations and now to our activity Advent Calendar. This kid’s spirit is positively infectious. […]
When I said I was done decorating for Thanksgiving, apparently I lied. My son and I were looking for Christmas embroidery and print ideas when we stumbled across this pumpkin design. It was a quick and easy project, which is good considering a week from now, I’ll have Christmas decorations out.
It’s done! I finally bought ribbon to string my “Thankful” banner together, and my Thanksgiving/fall mantel is finally done. And with the exception of a small embroidery piece, my fall decorating is complete. About time, too. Two more weeks and it all comes down for the Christmas stuff! So this was my first year to decorate […]
At the end of October, I made a list of all the Thanksgiving/fall decor I wanted to do. I think there’s eight or nine items on the list. I’ve slowly made my way through the list hoping to finish my projects before Thanksgiving comes and goes and it’s time to bust […]
A while ago, I pinned decorating Dollar Store mugs with a sharpie and have been itching to try it out. With my husband’s birthday coming up this week, I figured now was just as good as any time to try the project out. The hubs is a coffee connoisseur. His birthday/Christmas list, as it […]
One of my favorite things to do is shop for holiday decorations after the holiday has come and gone when everything is on clearance for 70-90%. That’s exactly what I did today. I sadly didn’t walk out of the store with the major haul I was hoping to, but I spent four dollars and […]
A few weeks ago, my son came home from his grandparent’s with a felt mustache with a sticky back. He wore that thing until it would stick no more. So, as I very frequently do for any and every given reason, I turned to Pinterest and snooped around for felt mustache tutorials. In the end, […]
What to do when your kiddo is out from school for election day and wants to play school? Have an art class and make a turkey from hand/feet prints.
