Printable Game-Day Football Coloring Pages

Football playoff season is here, and that means families everywhere are getting together with friends and gathering around the big screen to cheer on their favorite team and to eat some yummy food!

Valentine Boxes For Boys

We love getting crafty on Valentine’s day and my boys are getting pretty good at designing their own Valentine boxes for school.  Here are some of our favorite Valentine Boxes for boys. Valentine Boxes for Boys Every year my boys design a fun Valentine box that is taken to school empty and that returns full of Valentines from their friends. I was told recently that this doesn’t happen anywhere but in the US, and even then a lot of schools don’t allow it.  Boo!  My boys have a lot of fun designing their Valentine boxes and I’m glad that I can provide a little bit of enjoyment and a lot of memory making with my boys while they are little. Here are a few of the Valentine boxes my boys have made: […]

Marshmallow Snowman Hot Chocolate

This has been a strange winter for us. We just moved to the state that claims to have “The Greatest Snow on Earth” and yet we have had barely any snow. So instead of making snowmen outside, we are making marshmallow snowman hot chocolate! This is the perfect way to warm up on a cold snowy (or not so snowy) day. Marshmallow Snowman Hot Chocolate Everyday after school my boys come running through the door looking for something to snack on. On cold days, they go straight for the hot chocolate. We decided to mix things up a bit and add some marshmallow snowmen. My boys think it is so funny to watch them as they melt away to nothing. […]

The Ultimate List of Mother and Son Date Ideas

They say “don’t blink”. I don’t know who “they” are, but I’m starting to understand what they are saying. Each day I blink and then my baby starts kindergarten. Or I blink and my oldest is taller than I am. Next time I blink he might be heading out on his first date. And I’ll be stuck at home longing for the days when he was my special date and we went on adventures together. Since we can’t stop time, we can make the most of the time we have. These Mother and Son Date Ideas are the perfect and easy way for moms to build an unbreakable bond with their son.   Mother and Son Date Ideas One thing that I have noticed in raising my 4 boys is that they crave, CRAVE one-on-one attention.  They want to have time with just mom or dad and not the entire family. A Mother and Son date night doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. We have a large family (by today’s standards) and it can be hard to have time for each of my boys individually but these Mother and Son Date Ideas will get your brainstorming process started. Mom and Son Date Ideas […]

How fun are these Mummy pizzas?  Mummy pizzas have become a Halloween family tradition that my boys can’t live without. Mummy Pizza Welcome to October, the spookiest month of the year.  We always get to start our October off with my oldest son’s birthday.  14 years ago I became a mommy.    I cannot believe it has been that long!  My grandpa always joked about pregnant women having the “Egyptian Flu” because it would turn them into a “mummy”.  So what more perfect dinner to celebrate my becoming a “Mummy” than mummy pizza!  (I miss grandpa and his jokes. ) […]
