A Busy Weekend!

A Busy Weekend!

This past weekend seemed to be quite busy. Isn’t it funny how sometimes we have nothing to do and other times the schedule is just jam packed? Even though it was busy, most of it was fun at least. Friday was Taylor’s first day of school and we always celebrate the first and last days with a special dinner of his choice. This year he picked Red Lobster. While this … Continue Reading →
Making a Time Capsule

Making a Time Capsule

Today we made a time capsule. Nothing fancy, just a fun thing to do this time of year. I knew we were planning on making one today so it was ironic when a friend of the family called last night to tell me that she and the whole gang that they always hang out with on New Year’s Eve (including my parents) were opening their time capsule kit that I … Continue Reading →
Our Newest Homemade Ornaments

Our Newest Homemade Ornaments

We always try to add to the ornaments each year. It really isn’t so much about what the ornament is when we make homemade ones, but more just the experience of spending time together and enjoying making crafts together. There are no rules for these ornaments, anyone can use anything they want and make whatever they want. Here are the creations from myself, Hubby, and Taylor for 2009. This is … Continue Reading →
Historic St. Charles Christmas Traditions Event

Historic St. Charles Christmas Traditions Event

If you live in the St. Louis, Missouri area or plan to be visiting in the next couple of weeks I highly recommend visiting historic Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri. They have a huge Christmas Traditions event each year – night time is my preferred time to visit actually with all the warm glow of the lights, but daytime is good too – especially if the kids are coming … Continue Reading →
MythBusters Activity Kit Review

One of our favorite shows is MythBusters. All 3 of us, Hubby, Taylor, and myself, are Discovery Channel junkies honestly and MythBusters has been a favorite of ours since the start. As part of Team Mom we received a MythBusters Weird World of Water kit the other day which Taylor and I have been using for science this week for homeschool. Let me tell you to start that Elmer’s new … Continue Reading →
Blurt! Board Game Review

Blurt! Board Game Review

You know I love board games, so when Tim Walsh emailed me and asked if I would like to review his game, Blurt! ,I said yes right away. Wednesday nights my cousins usually come over for dinner and we play games, this week we tried out Blurt! The thing we all (Hubby, Jamie, Ben, and myself) noticed right away is that the box of cards is labeled with DRAW and … Continue Reading →
Homemade Halloween Decorations

Homemade Halloween Decorations

I’ve seen a couple of projects in Family Fun Magazine over the years that I’ve really thought were cute and never got around to doing them. This year we went ahead and gave them a try. Hubby and son think they are a bit too cutesy and not creepy and scary enough. I agree that they are kind of on the cute rather than scary side, but it was still … Continue Reading →
The Greatest Show on Earth!

The Greatest Show on Earth!

Did you grow up going to the circus? I did, and I loved it! There was always something magical about the circus with the lights, the clowns, the animals, the acrobatics, the sounds, and just the whole package. Even as an adult I’m still in awe at the performers and what they can do. It is truly a magical experience that I think everyone should at least enjoy once in … Continue Reading →
