I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a tough time getting going in the morning. The problem is my mornings don’t wait for me to wake up and get enough energy to take on the day. I have two kids to get ready for school. Four to five days a week my nephew is dropped off at about 8:30am so that I can babysit him while his parents are at work. Not to mention my two little ones who are always getting into some sort of mischief. Most recently I discovered nearly every surface of my bathroom … …..
When it comes to Disney movies all four of my girls are huge fans. I keep toying with the idea of planning a Disney World vacation, but I’m not sure it’s quite the best idea yet. My two youngest daughters love the characters from afar, but if anyone in costume gets too close to them ear deafening shrieks escape their adorable little mouths. And those aren’t shrieks of delight. Nope, they are pure terror. Since they do love the characters within a nice distance from themselves the next best option for us is Disney On Ice. The girls are very … …..
Christmas is less than a week away. I was fairly certain I had all of my shopping done until I heard my four year old say “I really hope Santa brings me new running shoes like I asked for.” And so I will be heading back out into the madness to pick her up a cute pair of sneakers because mama forgot that was indeed one of the few things she had specifically requested. If you are in need of some last minute gift ideas for little ones I simply can not say enough good things about Green Toys. Over … …..
Growing up my mom made it a point that we would eat dinner together every night as a family. It was the perfect opportunity to share how our day had went and to simply enjoy each others company. When Dustin and I purchased our first home we settled on a small bungalow and when I say small I truly mean it. After Alleigh was born we basically outgrew it, but because of the real estate market are still living here after four children. A few months ago we decided that our youngest was old enough to move upstairs with her … …..
This #MerryMeals shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I might not like the weather that comes with the winter months in Ohio. In fact I just told Dustin that I must be allergic to the cold. I’ll do anything I can to avoid going out especially when it’s snowing. But I do love the holidays that accompany these freezing months. Thanksgiving just flew by, but Christmas is less than a month away and then immediately following that we get to ring in the new year. My favorite thing about the holidays … …..
We absolutely love family game night and have quite the selection of board and card games, but I am still always on the look out for new games to spice things up. This is always the time of year I’m looking for a new game geared towards adults because on New Years Eve we have a large family gathering where we play games until the ball drops. This year I have found the game that is bound to have everyone in fits of laughter – Mouthguard Challenge. I’m sure everyone has seen the viral YouTube videos of people putting cheek … …..
I love exploring nature. Hiking and experiencing our earth’s beauty is one of my most favorite activities. As a mom of four I don’t have the opportunity to do that as much as I would like, but even so my everyday life with four girls is definitely an adventure. Whether I’m hiking along a cliff’s edge or chasing my toddler across the playground one thing is certain – I want to dress for comfort, but still look stylish while doing so. And since I love and respect our earth and want my great great great grandchildren to enjoy it as … …..
Have you started Christmas shopping yet? I am slowly beginning to check names off of my list. When it comes to gift giving I like to put a lot of thought into what I choose for each of my children. There is one company that I can always depend on for high quality toys that provide hours of open ended play for my little ones. That encourages my children to use the most powerful thing they will ever play with – their imagination. Toys that don’t require batteries. That are made with wood from sustainable forests and decorated with water … …..
Christmas will be here before we know it and I admit that I have been starting to panic a bit. I have literally only purchased 3 gifts so far and don’t have a clue what my two oldest daughters are hoping Santa brings. Even though I really want to decorate the house I am secretly cringing a bit inside because this year there is a two year old roaming the house – not to mention the cat. But there is one thing that I have officially checked off my holiday to-do list thanks to Portrait Innovations. Just last week I … …..
Last weekend I had the opportunity to invite some of my very good friends over and their little ones to share the new improvements that Luvs has made to their already amazing diapers. I wish I could have invited each and every one of my readers, but unfortunately I don’t think everyone lives close enough and well my house just wouldn’t fit ya’ll either, hehe. Since you couldn’t be here I thought the next best thing I could do would be to recap the party here on the blog. Before everyone arrived I spent some time that morning preparing for … …..
