Adios Week

I cannot be the only one…who has fallen very far behind in their Christmas obligations; you know the shopping, the decorating, and the planning of schedules for the impending school holiday. Although, it is not entirely my fault, here are few of the things that have been happening in our house over the past week, keeping me from getting this whole Christmas thing under control.

That Year We Got the Biggest Tree Ever

I remember when Scott and I went to get our very first tree together. I remember buying ornaments and taking a zillion pictures of it decorated. It sent a thrill right through me to see our very first tree sparkling in the living room of the apartment we were renting. It almost made everything we were doing, building a life together, seem truly, truly, true. If you know what I mean.…

Blog Rave: Christmas!!!

I have already done all of my Christmas shopping and I've done it all online. I absolutely love online shopping as I always seem to find a different or unique gift....and sometimes at a FANTASTIC price *wink*. I wanted to find my little niece, my only niece, and the only grand daughter to my parents something sweet and special. I love handmade items. They seem truly special to me. There is just something about "mass produced" products that turn me off on the "special" front. So where…

Pewi, what's that smell? "Oh, that's called STYLE, my dear... And I wish I would have had it when MY kid was learning to walk!"

When we were kids, the only method of solo transportation we had was a solid steel walker that looked like it should have come with its own pair of orthopedic shoes. Hell, for all WE know, my grandmother was working a little side deal with her podiatrist and using us as bait!…

Wrapping This Week Up

I cannot be the only one...who has realized that the end of another week in December only means seven days closer to Christmas, and that thought is making me break out in a cold sweat.  I don't know about the rest of you, but my normal chores don't cease in the name of Christmas, meaning I haven't wrangled up any extra time to spend getting this holiday thing under control.…

The mysteries of parenthood and a personalized Santa video

All parents learn to appreciate a good mystery. Think about it: One moment, you are happily twirling along in the universe, doing your own thing and the next moment, you have a baby and are faced with a million unanswerable questions. (How long is the baby supposed to sleep now? What did the baby eat to make that smell? You want me to put the thermometer where?)

As your…

Christmas Gift Ideas for Infants – Eight Early Learning Toy Gift Ideas for Babies

Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas?  As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months.  Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles.   Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them.  Playtime is also a great way…

Holiday Drama

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them!  Slow your hearts down…  I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month.  I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do.  That’s right… NOTHING.  It feels odd and I’m a little out of place.  I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold.  SO I guess, as…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

Frosty the Snowman Christmas Ornaments

My son came home from school a few days ago with a paper sack and handed it to me.  He said mom, “this is for you.”  I asked him what about dad, he said,”it was for him too.”  I carefully opened the paper bag and peeked inside.  I pulled out this cute ornament that he made at school for us.

I asked my son how they made it and he told me, so that I could share it with my readers.  It is a simple craft idea that you can easily do with your children.  And it would look cute hanging a few…
