Moss Christmas Tree

DIY Moss Christmas Tree

Happy Monday my friends! I'm excited to finally have several projects finished AND photographed to share with you this week. We went to Disneyland last month and two hours after we left the little one starting feeling sick. Needless to say the entire family has had their round in the last month. The blog has kinda taken the back burner and I've been anxious to finish projects. But I'm back full of ideas to share with YOU! Starting with this Moss Christmas Tree I recently made.

Most of us are probably getting ready for the busiest shopping season of the year. With Christmas roughly 45 days away you might have already started shopping or at least thought of your gift list.

Pilgrim Treat Boxes

Thanksgiving Ideas For Kids

My mother-in-law is hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner this year. All of our out of state family will be here to spend the week with us. She's mentioned making ornaments with the kids the day after Thanksgiving, which I think is a fantastic idea. Those are some of the best memories to make don't you think?

While browsing the Silhouette store I found these adorable Pilgrim Treat Boxes. … [Continue reading]

Toddler Peter Pan Costume

This year for Halloween we decided to have the younger two dress up with a theme in mind (my oldest was set on being Batman). The only problem was my daughter insisted on being Tinkerbell and we couldn't find a Peter Pan costume anywhere. She didn't want me to make the costume, nor did she want just any Tinkerbell costume..she wanted a specific costume we came across back in September. Almost everyday she would ask if we could go buy her Tinkerbell costume so that she could go trick-or-treating. … [Continue reading]

This week we celebrated my son's birthday which happens to be on Halloween. Since his birthday falls on a day that's so busy for everyone we tend to give him extra attention throughout the week. Our festivities began last Saturday by gathering with family and friends to celebrate. Later on in the week we had a smaller gathering with my side of the family and a friend from school. We had a great time, especially trying to figure out how to break a pinata I picked up last minute. Each child … [Continue reading]
