Shared one of the easiest ways to make paper snowflakes with kids on the Land of Nod blog last week. Since winter calls for more time indoors (for most of us anyway ;) I wanted to make sure and give you the link. Nothing quite like a simple paper project to spend quality time with kids and keep them engaged!
How have you guys been staying busy indoors lately?
Happy humpty-hump day! (oops — song officially stuck in my head now)
Awhile back, I shared a fun backpack charm kids craft using painted wood beads and ever since I have wanted to paint more to make bauble necklaces for the girls. Well, over the weekend Tilly and I finally got around to doing it and they turned out so super cute we decided to take pics and make a […]
My kids are loud and messy and opinionated and I can’t take them anywhere without something ridiculous happening but they are also so fun and silly and taking them out and about is one of my favorite things to do! When our older kids were little though there was one exception. Eating out. It was takeout […]
We’ve been in our home now for 2.5 years and it still feels very much like a work in progress. I can easily think of a few rooms that could use some sprucing up! I guess that is how having a home is? The room that has all my attention at the moment though is […]
It’s not often that I start my week off with a random post but — oh my goodness you guys — still over here having a hard time transitioning out of Christmas break mode! Was hoping all the new year’s resolutions, goals and ambitions would kick my butt into gear but the haze has not […]
Remember cribs on MTV? Well, the master bedroom might have been where the magic happened, but the refrigerator was always the best part. It’s so fun seeing what other people eat and since everyone in my home could use a cleanse from processed and sugary foods after the holidays, I thought it would be ‘fun’ […]
This year instead of just writing out my resolutions I decided to add the things that have already worked for me in the past and create a manifesto. It’s candid and simple, but filled with things I aspire to be and do. I like that it’s a mix of fun loving and spontaneous actions as well as […]
We’ve been soaking up the last bits of Christmas vacay and while I’m feeling ready to start taking down all the decor, I’m far from ready for the kids to go back to school. Ask me in a couple more weeks though, when their shiny new board games (pie face anyone!), legos and baby dolls lose their newness. […]
Happy day after Christmas you guys! I’m currently still in my jammies (at noon), listening to the kids play with their new toys, and have no plans of doing anything but eating leftovers, folding laundry and recovering from the (good) craziness that December brings. Sorta sad that the holiday season is coming to an end but I’m excited […]
Not sure how we are so close to Dec. 25th, but Happy Christmas Eve, Eve!!! A couple weekends ago we took the kids to see Santa and have been running non-stop ever since, just trying to cram in all the festivities, cookie baking, get togethers and gift buying. These full days are my very favorite but […]
Short of the occasional donut run, super sweet breakfast dishes are not the norm around here. All holiday seasons and celebrations being the exception. Thank goodness there’s always a reason to celebrate when we need a little indulging ;). The kids first full day of Christmas break this past Saturday seemed like the perfect excuse to surprise them with their […]
