Here’s a fun (and very delicious) little activity to do with animal crackers! We love taking our animal crackers on a parade around the table during snack time.

Sniffles, snot and runny noses- they are all over the place right now! We have been going through boxes of fancy, lotion infused facial tissue and every laundry load has mucus covered sleeves. Disgusting, I know… I have a pretty impressive collection of super soft flannel material (if I do say so myself) that I… Continue reading DIY Handkerchief Tutorial! These Things Are Great 🙂
My house needs a minimum of 2 hours a day of cleaning, dish washing, vacuuming, and laundry folding/ putting away to keep it feeling like a nice space to be in.

The weather is cold- sunny, but cold… And both my girls are sick. Coughing, sneezing, snottily snoring through the nights… It’s awesome. We’re all about washing sheets in hot water, washing hands, nose drops, humidifiers and lots of fluids right now. There is some serious cabin fever happening because we’ve hardly even stepped outside for… Continue reading Pinecone Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Ornaments!

This is something I need to keep… Continue reading Thankful Heart

A walk… Continue reading Meditative Meander Through My Favorite Graveyards- Happy Halloween!

The change of season always brings new adventures. There is something wonderful about watching the shift from summer to autumn. The leaves are completing their cycle- what started as fresh, new green is turning into brilliant yellows and oranges. A drive through the colors with my older brother and our children allowed for some beautiful… Continue reading It’s Autumn Time Again- A Meditative Meander Through The Trees

This past week was a big one in our house- I started working, more to come on that in a future post, and Daphne got a “helper award” at school! Yay Daphers! A helper award, if you don’t know, is given as recognition of being helpful without being asked to be helpful. I’m so proud… Continue reading Get Creative With Dried Rose Petal Art!
