Foam Window Birthday Cake

Sticky Foam: A Birthday Cake in the Window

To celebrate the week before George’s birthday, Henry made a birthday cake right on the front window. We received these foam platters from Michael’s Creatology line, that come in a brightly colored shapes one, as well as a sports edition with balls, trophies and so on.     These Foamies are perfect for sticking to […]

First Day of Preschool: Picnic Lunch

Henry headed off to his first day of 4 year old preschool on Monday. New building. New teacher. New experience! Henry was excited for school to start [thanks to our back-to-school countdown with books!] and to keep up the excitement, we planned a special picnic with the whole family for after school [he goes just for […]

Time for Shoes with Shoelaces

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.   I swear sometimes all I do is shop for shoes for the boys. George, I think, has grown through three pairs this summer alone. He’s has monstruous feet! And Henry has actually been wearing through his shoes this summer! […]

Fabric Painted Pillowcase

Remember our tie dyed pillowcase gift wrap? I added to it for a special little girl’s birthday gift! I used this rather cool fabric paint called DecoArt Ink Effects that irons on whatever you paint! I’ll show you the simple how-to [though, its pretty easy, so there's not really much to show you!]. And the […]

Tie Dyed Pillow Case Gift Wrap

Tie Dyed Pillowcase Gift Wrap

The boys [okay mainly Henry] and I received this rad [had to break that out] Tulip Tie Dye Kit in the mail and got to do some tie dying! Totally! We came up with a plan to dye pillow cases before we even got the kit. So we tie dyed right away when we got the […]

Dinosaurs & Cars: Together!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of VTechKids. All opinions are 100% mine.   The boys received these cool toys from VTech the other day. They couldn’t [and still can't] put them down. I’m so thrilled with this. Why? Because its something other than tractors for once! Yes, it’s still another […]

Remembering proud moments with our kids

Proud Moments: The unRecognized Firsts

We all keep track of the major milestones [or at least have the intention of doing so]… I’ve noticed with George’s baby book its missing a lot of the details compared to Henry’s, though. We always think of the major milestones. The first time they crawl, first steps, first tooth, and of course the first […]

Routine

Getting to Sleep after Daylight Savings Time

The start of Daylight Savings Time in the Spring is usually never a big deal in this house. In fact, I actually look forward to it. It brings me [at most] two days of sleeping in until 7am instead of the usual 6am. Yay! Henry’s really good about the time change. We put him to bed […]

9 hands on ways to be earth friendly

9 Hands on Ways to be Earth-Friendly

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” We’ve been reading The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. This book is actually new to me, but I love the message for the boys [and myself!]. Its about how a business comes into a ‘forest’ of Truffala Trees and uses […]
