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 […]

Great Cookies, Great Christmas, Great Gatsby

It has been a crazy holiday!  Today is the first day that I’ve had to sit down during nap time to do anything for myself.  So you’re getting a quick recap in pictures of what we’ve been doing for the past month. Unfortunately for us, the flu hit right at holiday time.  The boys had […]

Naughty or Nice

Warning!  This post is about Christmas, Santa, and that pesky Elf on the Shelf.  If you’ve still got Halloween decorations up, you may want to move along and hold on for a few more weeks until we can get Thanksgiving out of the way. So, along with the time-change this year, behavior problems seemed to […]

Rainbow Rice

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. […]

Welcome to Preschool!

Both of my little Piggies are officially in Preschool.  If you’re new and you missed my explanation, we are getting our “feet wet” with homeschool on Mondays and Fridays.  On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, they are in a local church preschool.  We are trying to decide what to do when it is time to officially […]

Family Calendar & Message Wall

Are you an organizer? I love EVERYTHING about organizing! I love baskets, little compartmentalized drawers, family planners, and labeling anything in my house that sits still. What I love the most are Calendars!  My favorite thing to do in December is to pick out the new calendar that goes on our refrigerator.  One calendar is […]
