With Halloween just around the corner, the grocery store shelves are packed with giant bags of candy just waiting to be opened up and doled out to the throngs of trick or treaters about to descend upon your neighborhood. But this year, instead of putting yet another piece of candy into those trick-or-treat bags… I [...]
I know it is ridiculous to say this, since we have lived in our “new home” for over 9 months now…. but finally, FINALLY I feel as if we are making it our own. In the beginning it was all about unpacking, finding a home for everything, and getting moved in. Then came spring sports, [...]
I can’t believe how fast the Independence Day celebration has creeped up on us! So as we look forward to spending some time with extended family, hanging out by the lake, enjoying a BBQ, and ending the day with fireworks and s’mores… I thought it would be fun to share some great ideas for celebrating [...]

One of the traditions we always follow on Easter, is that the Easter Bunny hides our kids Easter baskets, so they have to go on a hunt to find them before they receive their goodies! The Easter bunny leaves a clue right where the kids will find it when they get up, and then that [...]
I am sure that many of us will be dyeing Easter eggs with our kiddos this weekend…. but maybe (like me) you are looking to do something a little more special than just creating solid-colored eggs with the good ‘ole Paas kit? But at the same time you don’t want to go overboard and create [...]
I don’t think I am alone when I say… “Bring on Spring!”. After the long, cold, and very snowy winter we’ve had, we’re all feeling it. So even though the mornings are still pretty cool, and there are no leaves on the trees yet…. we all know spring is just barely around the corner- almost [...]
Don’t you remember how excited you used to be back when you were a kid, and you were finally able to say, “I’m five and a HALF!”, or I’m seven and a HALF!”? I think for the under-10 set, reaching the point where you can add “half” to the end of your age always feels [...]
