A Dairy-Free Christmas: Soy Nog

Dairy and egg-free soy nog! No way! Over the past couple weeks I have been experimenting with various soy nog recipes. We've tried banana as a thickening agent (too much banana flavour). We've tried tofu (too gritty no matter how much it's blended). Then we tried making it with a coconut milk. BINGO! I finally concocted a soy nog recipe that my whole family loves.…

Winter Activities For Children

Adults often shy away from enjoying the outdoors when the temperatures drop. I would like to encourage you to dress head-to-toe in your winter gear (that's right, even snow pants) and get outdoors this winter! Here's a list of things you can do outdoors with your children once the snow starts to cover the ground.…

Before We Enter The Holiday Season

We are less than a month away from Christmas. As we enter this season of giving and receiving. I would like to encourage you to take a moment and think about what's important in your life. Think about this world and all who have and those who have not.

A Dairy-Free Christmas: Ginger Snaps

I associate a variety of spices with Christmas... cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course, ginger. All of these are smells of Christmas. This dairy-free recipe is a great one. Delicious vegan ginger snaps!

A Dairy-Free Christmas: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

My daughter is anaphylactic to dairy. She is also allergic to eggs and peanuts. Obviously, special occasions such as Christmas can be challenging with all the delicious cream, butter and dairy-filled treats floating around! 



This year, I decided to challenge myself to concoct some dairy-free recipes so that my daughter can partake in the Christmas goodies as well! Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing our recipe feats with you. So please, curl up by the

fireplace (or…

A Butterfly Mobile For Baby

Now that my baby is four months old, she is spending a lot of time looking around and observing her environment. Since my baby is so "old" it seemed a little ridiculous to go out and purchase a mobile. Thus, I decided to make one of my own.

My plans came from this fantastic book....

Childlike Faith

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder

them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth,

anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never

enter it". (Mark 10:14-15)

 

As an early childhood educator, I have been contemplating exactly what does it mean to have childlike faith? As a mother and an early childhood professional, I have the wonderful… Continue

Simplify Your Life By Decluttering Your Mind

Often when people talk about simplifying their lives, it usually includes; decluttering closets, making less commitments, freeing up time, buying less, and minimalist decorating. But what about decluttering your mind?



I admit it, I am a project hound. I'm inspired frequently and easily. As a result, I have close to fifty unfinished projects around my house. I recently realized that these projects are not only cluttering my home but they are cluttering my mind.



Here's what I…

That Three-Legged Dog

There's a strong and silent presence in our house. The other day I realized that he hasn't appeared in my blog very much but he is a big part of our lives.



Meet Maverick.

Christmas Book Advent Calendar

I know, I know... we just got through Halloween and I'm already talking about Christmas! Well, I have to tell you about this project because maybe you'll want to do it too!



So, I have been recently inspired by the idea of a Christmas Book Advent Calendar. As I've shared previously, as Early Childhood Educators, my husband and I truly believe in the importance of fostering literacy. Hence, when I…

Every Little Bit Helps

Hungry. Homeless. Sick. Scared. Alone.



I live a privileged life. I don't live in a mansion. I don't have a flush bank account. I don't have a jewelry box full of gems.



I do however, have a comfortable home; I always have food to eat and clean water to drink; and when the weather changes I have clothes to wear and a warm bed to sleep in.



I recognize that I am very fortunate... blessed. Thus, you could imagine my horror when this scene unfolded: I was changing the…
