Carrot Cake Kiss Cookies

It is hard to believe Easter is around the corner! It really snuck up on me this year. If you follow along, you know I love an easy holiday cookie recipe I can make with the kids. When I came across Hershey’s seasonal Carrot Cake Kisses, I knew I had to create something using them. These aren’t just any White Chocolate Kisses, but rather, ones filled with a cream filling.

It seems like yesterday we were coming home from the hospital, no longer a family of three, but rather a complete family foursome. That being said, part of me is a bit happy to say bye to the “threenager” stage that reared its head often over the last year. Our girl is mighty and knows what she likes and doesn’t like.

Goal Setting Printable for Kids

For as long as I can remember, my parents have taken time to sit down on the 1st day of January and write out their goals for the year to come. They list out what they want to be, see and do over the 12 months that follow, as well as, their bigger goals for 5 and 10 years down the road. Their timely tradition also includes reviewing all they have accomplished from one year to the next. Continue Reading

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. Continue Reading
