Kid Craft: Christmas Tree Bar

This is such a fun and simple project for the kids…and even the adults! Eleanor and I got a little crafty today. Gluing things is one of her favorite ways to create now-a-days. She helped me choose all of our Christmas tree bar fixings. She loved watching the Cricut cut them out too. We created these […]

HALLOWEEN-COOKIE-BAKING-2

Halloween Happenings

Here in Wisconsin, Fall is short-lived. I’m bummed at how quickly fall has passed us by. It was snowing as we trick-or-treated yesterday!! We had big dreams for fall. We managed the hayride, hike, pumpkin farm, trick-or-treating, the apple orchard, scary movie night, baking fall treats and celebrating Quinn’s birthday. We still have a shot […]

O Holy Night Christmas Printable

At Christmas Eve mass this song brings tears to my eyes. I told the husband I wanted a printable with the lyrics and he made me this! And because sometimes black and white is where it is at.   Christmas is exactly two months away!! Still plenty of holidays to celebrate yet, but a fun […]

Fall and Thanksgiving Printables

Yesterday we said goodbye to summer and I really am ready to embrace fall now. I did a bit of decorating over the weekend. Pumpkins and warm, earthy smells. Everything feels so cozy! The watercolors in the frames certainly weren’t giving me the warm, cozy, fall vibe I was going for. I had the hubs […]

My Heart Is Bursting- A Valentine Classroom Activity

Saturday morning I whipped up this fun and completely reusable Valentine classroom activity. This little number doubles as an activity and Quinn’s valentines. This project was completely inspired by my blogging friend Poofy Cheeks Wreck it Ralph Birthday Party. My son became obsessed with it when he saw me reading her blog, but specifically really […]

For the Sake of the Children

When the Christmas decorations came down Eleanor was all about, what comes next? She was constantly asking to decorate. I didn’t feel like decorating, but it just made the kids so darn happy that I couldn’t help but share in their joy. Just a little. Kids have a way of doing that to you–of making […]
