I have been way, way off the grid lately. I’ve started so many posts, only to leave them as stale and outdated drafts. I’ve taken to many pictures to upload to facebook or twitter, which are now hogging up precious storage space on my phone. To say I’ve been busy would be an amazing understatement. […]
Happy (mostly) Wordless Wednesday! Today I wanted to share some of the sillier photos from last Christmas. These may have not made it into frames on our mantle, but they are some of my favorites!
Happy Thanksgiving! I wasn’t going to post anything today, but then I realized I would normally do a Thankful Thursday post today, and what better day for a post like that than Thanksgiving? Life with three boys can be… hectic. There’s always too much noise, too much arguing, too many toys on the floor and […]
We went to visit Santa this week. For three excited boys, I think we got a pretty good photo! Happy Wordless Wednesday!
This week’s Wordless Wednesday is pretty loud… The Bean does Dinosaur and Zombie impressions on an afternoon walk…
This post may include affiliate links. Thanks for stopping by for another Thankful Thursday post! Things I am thankful for this week: Despite being insanely busy this week I was able to volunteer at J’s school during the Scholastic Book Fair. I love helping with the book fair, there is something about kids getting being […]
Happy 2nd Birthday, Bean… Happy wordless Wednesday, folks!
Living close to the city has always give us the privilege of being exposed to so many diverse cultures, people, groups and walks of life. This means the kids have grown up being regularly exposed to less fortunate, and often times homeless, people as well. As the kids get older they often ask questions, and we […]
With the holidays coming up I think everyone gets a chance to reflect a little more on what they have to be thankful for. We do our very best to remember these things all year long, although sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of all we have in the middle of a chaotic life. Luckily, […]
Last weekend we finally went to pick out our Jack O Lantern. With the kids being sick back to back we never got around to pumpkin picking, and by last weekend it felt like we were almost out of time. Stew Leonards wound up being our choice, it was a reasonable driving distance and didn’t involve […]
I am really excited to announce that I finally got a mailing list up and running, and I’ll be using it to send out weekly newsletters full of recipes, crafts, activities, printables and contests. We’ve got a nice giveaway coming up soon, so sign up below, check your email to confirm, and you’ll start […]
Living in New York it’s surprising we have never been to the Great Jack O Lantern Blaze before, one of Hudson Valley’s most popular attractions. The Great Jack O Lantern Blaze boasts thousands of elaborately carved pumpkins sprawled across a historic 18th century riverside landscape. I was not compensated in any way for this […]
The Bean had a last minute playdate the other day. He loves to snack, and so does his friend, so I decided to put some of the last apples from our visit to Fishkill Farms to use and make these fun, tasty ladybug apples! I love these because even our very little ones can help make […]
I was running late to pick up Monkey from school today. I’m always running late to pick up Monkey. Even though his school is only five minutes away from J’s traffic, parking and the fact that we can only walk as fast as the one of us with the shortest legs (ahem, Bean) make it a […]
The weather was perfect for September this past Saturday – cool, but not cold, when a friend of mine suggested taking the kids apple picking. I can hardly turn down a day surrounded by fresh fruit, so we quickly made plans to head to Fishkill Farms in Hopewell Junction, NY. It was early afternoon when […]
