My friend Nancy is one of those people that always knows the best places to go and see around our area. She is always up on what shop is coming in or what a certain place is like. I really respect her opinion on things and she always has one! I asked her to write a blog about a getaway she had with her husband because it sounded so great. After reading what she had to say and looking over the website, I was ready to pack and head out to The Golden Anchor with or without my hubby! FROM NANCY: Recently my husband and I went on a weekend trip to the mountains of West Virginia. Bob had spent the...

Guess what I am going to tell you about??? You guessed it, another craft that mommy sets-up and the kiddos do! With Perler Beads your kiddos can create really cool designs with little plastic beads that can be strung together, or melted together with an ordinary household iron (Mommy does the iron part)! This is probably best for ages 5 and up because it uses lots of fine motor skills… It’s something you need to try first to see if they can do otherwise I can see this craft being more frustration than fun. Still I found a way to get my 2 year old into these little beads too & I...

Halloween was so great this year. The weather was fantastic and my Darth & Minnie both had so much fun Trick or Treating. Then we ended the night at the neighbors by the fire pit. The kids watched a projected movie outside while the parents drank spiked apple cider. Great way to end a great night. It kept mommy away from the candy dish! When I got home from the neighborhood party I was a little sad. Halloween always marks the end of my favorite season… fall ! Then starts me thinking about all the things I want to do before Christmas. Luckily I had the chance to remember fall...

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 course my favorite activities are the ones I set-up and then...

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 honey; later, cooks found that fruit and berries were equally...

A few months ago I ventured out of my familiar Internet website world and entered the world of blogging… I was looking for birthday party ideas for my sons Star Wars party. I found that if I searched “Star Wars Party Ideas” + blogs that many great blogging websites with awesome ideas appeared. Then became my quest of learning about the blogging world and come 8:30 when the kids are in bed – I grab my tea & my laptop and start exploring all these great places! Thought I would share a Hodge podge of what I have found & want to do. I want to do these Ghosties on Parade with my...
