Mmmmm, Oreos.  Who doesn’t LOVE them?  And so many varieties these days to choose from! If you haven’t had one in a while, go down the cookie aisle next time you’re at the grocery store and see how many different types there are. You’d be surprised! Did you know you can make Oreos even better by making them into Oreo Balls? If you...

Our Family Reunion was this weekend and I made a great Fall dessert for it. This is made similarly to a Chocolate Eclair cake. It was so good that the pan was scraped clean just to get that last tiny serving.  What you Need: 2 cans of Apple Pie Filling (no sugar added) 1 cup sugar 3 packages instant French vanilla pudding 4 cups milk 1 1/2 cup sour cream 1 1/2...

We had a plastic shoe box full of broken crayons and I just couldn’t throw them away! After finding some cute silicone ice tray/molds for $1 each, I decided to take those broken crayons and make new ones. My first attempt at this, I won’t lie, was a year ago. Oh, people. It SO makes a difference who makes your crayons. We had a ton of no-name crayons from...

  My little guys started back to homeschool this week! I know it seems late, but we school year-round, so we took our break in July and August. Anyway, we have been doing a calendar for about a year, and every month, our “theme” changes. We’ve done pumpkins and cornucopias, different colors of paper, and starfish/crabs, among others.  This allows...

We have talked about positional words in the bathtub with toys (over, under, through, in, out), watched Michael Rosen tell the story on YouTube, and have played a couple of games I found online. Since today is the last day of our unit, I wanted to...

This post is sponsored by SONIC, all opinions are 100% my own. My mom and my son have a very special relationship.  She has helped when I just didn’t know what to do when he was severely colicky as a baby.  She would stay up until 2 am with me as we tried to get him to sleep, helped pat his back over her knee, and pulled her hair out with me when...

My boys are still young but my almost 8 year old is very aware of his looks. He has to wear uniforms to school but on non-uniform days he often asks to “dress handsome”.  Both boys have great hair thanks in part to the hair care products they use.     Luckily with  Tresemmé® and Dollar General  you don’t need to spend...
