Rainbow Bread

Yesterday, I shared our most favorite sandwich bread recipe ever!  It truly is the best sandwich bread!  Today, I am going to share how we took this bread and made Rainbow Bread! During the Christmas break, we had lots of family in town, spent about 4 days in a hotel, and had a big wedding […]

2015 Calendar

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a safe and happy night.  Our family made fun rainbow bread (I’ll post about it soon), and then we played late with neighbors.  The kids thought it was so much fun to be outside at night.  After the kiddies got into bed, the hubby and I had a […]

Paper Bag Advent Calendar

I know, I know – I promised a lot more Thanksgiving posts, but the truth is, I was too busy getting ready for Thanksgiving to post about it.  I’ll try to do a better job next time. I will also try to be a better blogger during Christmas.  Who am I kidding?!  I’ve got 16 […]

Workboxes Rolling Cart

We’ve been trying to get our playroom/home classroom organized.  One of the things that I really wanted to get to help the boys with making choices, and to keep myself organized, was this rolling cart.  I had read about Work Boxes from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  I knew we were not ready for that type […]

Rainbow Rice

Do your children love helping you in the kitchen?  My little Piggies can’t get enough of the measuring cups, spoons, funnels, and their favorite has to be the wire whisk.  Sometimes I welcome their help, while other times, I just need to get it done without taking 10 minutes to measure and count 5 Cups […]

Modern Money Labels for School

Yesterday I gave you Mickey Mouse money labels for your little tots when they have to send money to school.  I promised you I would make some for the older kids, and I kept to my word. Originally I thought I would do two sets – One for the upper elementary boys and girls, and […]

Mickey Mouse Money Notes

After yesterday’s post about Notes to School, I had a special request from a teacher of one of the Piggy’s to also post the money notes we use.  These are definitely geared toward primary children.  Both of my Piggies are huge Mickey Mouse fans.  Everything in our house is either Mickey or trains.  For these […]

Notes to School

It is almost Friday! If your week has been like mine, you’re on your second bottle of wine or box of chocolate (whatever your vice of choice), doing a happy dance, or all three! Today’s post comes at just the right time. Piggy Two has been cutting his 2 year molars, has a bucket of […]

Toddler and Family Rules

Hello again!  I hope you guys have had a great week.  We have had family in town and I’ve been a slacker!  Most of our family lives far away, so we stop what we are doing when they come for a visit.  My husband’s family is from Colorado which means a plane trip for them […]

Gratitude Frame

We have the best neighbors on the planet!  You know those annoying people that live next door and complain about everything?  Not us!  “Those neighbors” don’t live on either side of us.  We seriously lucked out!  My boys think our neighbors are their Aunt and Uncle. It doesn’t matter that they have different last names. […]
