There are very few adults out there that don't enjoy a cup of coffee now and then, or maybe even 3 cups... before 9am. But hey, we don't judge. While I don't drink a pot by myself, I do enjoy a cup now and then. However my craving for coffee is rarely enough motivation to get me to brew a pot for myself. With our traditional coffee maker I am never sure how to scale down,
I love when the boys draw and get creative with arts and crafts, but I am not always up for cleaning up the mess that comes with it. Washing down tables and hands, picking up all of the bits of paper... there are times when I.Just.Can't. And it is on those days when I love to break out our Crayola sets and let the boys be creative without making a huge mess of my dining
At this time of year everyone is so busy. Shopping for gifts, wrapping, cleaning up the house for when guests come over. Why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone with re-gifting this year. I know, this can be a taboo topic however re-gifting electronics that you do not use can help reduce the amount of gifts you have to buy and help you get rid of the clutter in your house. It is

It is exciting to celebrate all of the milestones that come in the first year of life – starting solid food, sitting up unassisted, crawling and of course all of the “first holidays”. With Monkey I made sure to capture each one with a picture. With Little Bear, being the typical second child I seemed to miss a few of the holiday milestone pictures I captured with Monkey.
February is busy month for us – my parent’s wedding anniversary, Valentine’s Day, my wedding anniversary and 2 family birthdays! We will be doing a lot of celebrating this month. With all of the cake and treats the boys will be taking part in this month I try to limit the amount of sweets I give to them. However I would still like to give them a little something special from
Wrapping gifts – you either love it or hate it. I grew up with presents always wrapped and decorated with ribbons and bows under our Christmas Tree. It is a tradition that I have tried to keep up, and Hubs and I have a perfectly choreographed system to get all the presents wrapped without ending up arguing. Please tell me I am not the only one who has had fights during late
I am not a huge fan of party favors (goodie bags), so for Little Bear’s first birthday I wanted to do something a little different and something that would not get tossed in the garbage as soon as the kids get home for his construction party. I would rather not give out goodie bags then send kids home with cheap toys that are just going to break within a day. If you are going
As moms we are BUSY. Between working, cleaning, cooking, taking care of the kids, running to sporting events and other extracurricular activities it is hard to take time to just slow down.
