With the heat index rising on the West Coast and school finishing up, why not add “Run a Lemonade Stand” to your family’s Summer Bucket List. For children, it can be a great activity in planning and organizing, not to mention, the math skills acquired counting all that money!
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, my kids and I put on our crafty hats and spent an afternoon working on some fun handmade gifts. You see, we have two wonderful Grandmas that are part of our village that deserve to be spoiled. While a spa gift certificate is in their future, a little keepsake from their grandchildren will sure to go over well too.
The last couple of years, I haven’t had a chance to dye and decorate Easter Eggs with the kids. The way Spring Break fell this year, we had a bit more free time before the holiday. However, I just didn’t have the energy to clean up a huge mess. I saw another mom online talk about “tattooing” eggs and I decided we would give it a go.
At my recent Valentine’s Day Dog Paw-ty I hosted with Melissa from Petite Littles Everyday, the pink and red themed backdrop created behind the dessert table was made entirely from dollar store materials. Not only was it extremely inexpensive, it was easy to install and I loved how it turned out. I thought I would share the details of how to create a similar background, which cost less than $8 to create.
As many of our beloved friends and family live across the United States and Canada, I definitely enjoy sending out a holiday photo card every December. Since the kids change so much year to year, it is great to document them and possibly even get a rare shot of both my husband and I in front of the camera. This year we did our Christmas family shoot at a local tree farm and I couldn’t love the photos more.
