Preparing for Easter

It has turned right from winter to spring around here. This week begins the final few days before Easter. We are preparing with egg decorating, treats and church.


50's Sock Hop - Middle School Cotillion

At my daughter's middle school, the 6th grade class gets to participate in Cotillion. It is a 4 week program hosted by the PTA that teaches etiquette, manners, and dance. I volunteered to co-chair the first dance, which is the 50's Sock Hop. Want to see how we threw a 50's theme party-- including decorations, fun party food and entertained 150 middle school kids on a Friday night? Well keep on reading!


Spread the Love, Not Germs! (Hand-Sanitizer Gift)

I don't know about you, but we are trying our best to keep away the flu! We have had so many friends get sick this season. It is just awful! Although we got our flu shots, we have been extra vigilant about washing hands. Which is why this was the 'sweet treat' my girls gave to their teachers last week.


Easter is Coming: The Eggmazing Egg Decorator

With Valentines over, we are ready for all the fun that Easter brings! I love the Easter season, it is filled with hope, purity and the promise of new life. There are so many cute crafts and activities that we can do as a family this time of year. One of our favorite traditions is dying Easter eggs. It's a chance for us all to sit around the table and just enjoy being together. Which is why I was so excited when my friend shared with me a new crafty way to decorate Easter eggs!


iPod Valentine Box & RV Valentine Box

It's that time of year again-- time for for Valentine's Boxes. My oldest has gone to middle school, so no more Valentine exchanges for her. But she still played along and got crafty while my second grader worked to make the 'perfect' box for her Valentine party. We looked around on Pinterest and then heated up the old glue gun and got started!


New Year's Eve Treats

New Year's Eve comes the same day each year, but for some reason I like to wait until the last minute to plan! Luckily our sweet friends invited us along to a party with them. I wanted to bring a fun NYE dessert, but I was short on time. So what did I do? I 'semi-homemade' a few things of course :)


Dollar Tree Christmas Gift

For the holidays, I love to give my girls teachers special treats. For Christmas I had lots of cute things pinned, but then I lucked out and found some 'ready made' ideas at the store! 


Pinterest Inspired Holiday Food

We hosted our "Christmas with Friends" party again this year. It's our second year and this one was just as fun as the last. We ate all the yummy things, drank the drinks, played LCR, and laughed a lot.

(Jeff and I cracked ourselves up by dressing in coordinating plaid shirts. We didn't even plan it!) 


DIY Ugly Sweater Ornament

My oldest had a friend over for a playdate last week, which of course ended up with us making a craft. It's what we do :) This one was fun and easy enough for all ages. It would be cute on package or to give alone as gift. It's the DIY Ugly Sweater Ornament!


December Updates!

Am I the only one who can't believe Christmas is less than a week away?! We have been enjoying the season and preparing our hearts for the big day.  So today I am sharing some of the fun things I have been doing with my family. Keep reading- you might find some inspiration for your crew!
