I saw a cute craft idea over at Ramblings of a Crazy Women… I love little crafts you make out of little feet tracings and little hand tracings. I always have my kids make reindeer’s on the holidays out of their cute feet and hands. So when I ran across this craft idea, I tweaked it and made it a little different and got my kiddos to make two cute witchies from two cute footsies. Ta-da! How to make your little Footsie Witchie… Trace your Kiddos Foot. Draw a hat to match (or for the older one’s, let them draw...

I am a snoop… I love shows like House Hunter (on TLC). Similarly, I like to look on house listing sights. No, I am not looking for a new house, I just like looking to see how other people decorate… I will admit that when I walk my dog at night I like to look in lit-up windows to see how people decorate. I am not a great decorator by any means. My husband calls our house a little bit of french, some modern, and some country. I am probably more confused then anything. One thing I do like is quotes, pictures, the colors red and...

Last weekend we went apple picking. It was a first for my kids and they LOVED it! They had lots of fun running through the orchard and picking their apples. The next day my son went to school and it was his library day. I always love to look at the books he picks. Most of the time he gets three and they are always Non-Fiction. For sometime he was bringing home books on Spiders. Just when I thought we had read every book his school library had on spiders, along comes another spider book. It got to a point where I had to tell him to pick another...

Yesterday we were trimming trees and we found some red leaves… o, my! Fall is coming. I love Fall, it is my favorite season. I just wish winter did not follow fall. If we could skip winter all together, that would be fabulous in my book. Back to fall; I love all the fun activities at the local farms (Trax, Simmons, Triple B), I love the craft fairs(Covered Bridge, Washington County Holiday Fair), I love mums, I love Halloween, and I love the cool feeling in the air… I could go on and on about all the great things fall has to...

Do you see our little pumpkin hanging on the tree? Just thought I would share a simple fun activity that will keep the kiddos busy. By now you may notice a theme with my kiddos activities… “Keep them busy so mom can sit back and watch…” Not sure if it a good parenting tip or a poor one. It works for my son because if he is busy he stays out of trouble (trouble meaning bothering his sister). Thus, mommy stays nice and happy and doesn’t loose her cool. Same goes with my daughter just on a different level. Of...

I know it isn’t time for that little green guy and most are still waiting for the great pumpkin… but those apples are good for cooking and I wanted to share a fave recipe of mine. Plus I recently made the little bugger and have a picture to share of it! mmmmmmm…. Food historian and cookbook author Theodora FitzGibbon once said, “All Irish people have a very sweet tooth,” and if you grew up in an Irish household you know this to be true. In the earliest times, the sweet was a simple concoction of fruit and...
