When Caleb was little I was so excited to do Gingerbread houses with graham crackers. Ummm – FAIL! Every time we touched the walls they would fall. It was so frustrating, especially for a 1 year old! So we set that tradition aside to save my sanity! This year I saw a rice krispy treat…

One of our favorite family traditions in the fall is to go to our local family farm and do the corn maze and other fun activities. It seems to get more fun each year! Its usually cool when we leave the corn maze and by the time we get home we are ready for a…

My husband has been wanting to get a Family Goals Printable in our home for a while, so he decided to design one that would compliment our Weekly Schedule 12×36 Printable.  I’m really excited about it – cause it gives us something to constantly see and reflect on.  On a day that I have open…

Pin It This tradition goes back a  long time! Growing up my family always spent Valentine’s Day together and had a special dinner. My parents would go out on a separate night to have their own Valentine’s celebration.
