Spring is right around the corner….hopefully. The girls and I can’t wait for the warmer days and to arrive, so in hopes of spurring them on we have been reading spring time books. One of our favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.    Susie and I decided to make our own caterpillars. We can’t wait to share them with you.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=D7ZA2K-1tfY These were simple easy to make, and while there was a little mess...

      Pineapples were on sale today, so we snapped up two. I love pineapple and the boys do, too. Ian asked how pineapples grow. On trees? In the ground like a plant? So we did a little research and found this blog post that explained how to grow a pineapple.  We also admired a whole page of Google images of pineapples growing inside big leafy plants, which we thought was pretty cool! Well, we were cutting one up for snack anyway, right?...

I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review, however all opinions are my own. Being a young girl is tough, especially these days when social media, television, and magazines tell us we should look perfect, have perfect lives, etc.  The author of All Mascara is Not Created Equal, Jessica Landmon, says, “We certainly shouldn’t attach our worth to how many likes we get on a seflie.”  The book was created to give inspirational advice to...

With two very active little boys we have a lot of injuries at our house.  Depending on the type of injury we often use either an ice pack or hot pack. Recently we have started making our own and the boys love them! These are not only cute they are so easy to make. The Boo Boo Bunny can be frozen or warmed in the microwave. The rice inside makes it easy to manipulate and form around the injury that needs attention. What you Need: Chenille Adult Sock Buttons for eyes 2 Rubber...

What you Need: 1 box chocolate cake (plus required ingredients) 1 container chocolate frosting 1 package chocolate sandwich cookies Green taffy (we prefer Airheads) Mini terra-cotta clay pots which you can pick up 3 for $1 at Dollar Tree Directions: Prepare cupcakes...

I received a World Vision umbrella and scarf in compensation for this post, but all opinions are my own. As the weather warms up, we will soon be thinking about how to keep cool this coming Summer.  We will turn on the sprinklers, fill the pools, and go for a swim.  We will make iced tea, bottled water, or heck, drink from our own individual water hoses.  We don’t have to worry about water.  Not having access to clean water is something that never crosses...

Last Christmas, I sent my husband out for a few items I needed to make some baked goods for family.  One of those items was a bag of Heath bar bits.  He loves Heath, so I planned on making some cookies with them.  Well, he went to the restaurant supply store for another item we needed, and found a HUGE bag of the Heath there.  In a moment of husband-wisdom, he bought a $25 bag of something I use very rarely.  Needless to say, I still have the whole bag,...
