Measuring Equivalents Free Print

Today I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I am HORRIBLE at Math.   It was easily my worst subject in school, and still to this day, I rely on Dave, and counting on my fingers and toes to figure out the simplest of math problems. My poor children are in trouble once they pass 3 rd grade, because this Mom won’t be of much help when it comes to helping with Homework.  (It’s a good thing {Read More}

4th of July Fruit & Marshmallow Kabobs with Chocolate

This afternoon, while Canon was tucked away in his bed slumbering the afternoon away, Nixon and I put together a fun treat. I’ve seen variations of Red, White, and Blue “Kabobs” all over pinterest for years now, and wanted to put my own spin on it.   And by “Spin” I mean Chocolate.    These are SO easy to make, and require very few ingredients.  Plus if you have kiddos like me, who LOVE to help in the kitchen, then {Read More}

Lunch now being served

This week, we have spent quite a bit of time at home.  I have been cleaning out closets, cabinets, drawers, and rooms trying to get rid of extra clutter.  While I was at it, I made a few changes to my kitchen, and ordered some fabric to make new curtains for my kitchen window.  I can’t wait to get them sewed up and lined to show you what I picked out.   But here is a peek at a few {Read More}

Chocolate Chip Gooey Cake Bars

Chocolate Chip Gooey Cake Bars

A few weeks ago, I got a special delivery at my house from friend.  It was the cutest little pastry box filled with the most delicious sugar cookies, and gooey cake bars.  What is a gooey cake bar you ask?  A seriously bar with a chewy crust and a creamy slightly gooey topping.   After my first bite,  I knew I was in trouble, and to be honest I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them since.  So yesterday {Read More}

Fresh Baked Pies

 Hello Friends.   Hope you’re having a wonderful week.  I know it’s been quiet over here, but I have been busy keeping my 2 boys busy! But I did finally manage to put some finishing touches on a shelf I’ve been working on in my kitchen.   I just loved the way it turned out.  As a matter of fact, it got me all excited that I even had to bake a pie.   So make sure you come back, {Read More}

Welcome Summer

Welcome Summer

Well the end of the School Year finally arrived and Nixon graduated from Kindergarten. I arrived at Nixon’s school for his end of year program, only to realize it wasn’t just a program, but a graduation ceremony as well.  Which brings me to question, when did Kindergarten “graduation” become a thing? Growing up, and being a product of the public school system, none of me or my siblings ever “graduated” from Kindergarten.  Yes, I now live in a different school {Read More}

Well, we made it.  Today is the LAST day of school!  This is my first last day of school as a Mom.  Did that make sense? This year FLEW by! It seems like yesterday I was baking up cookies preparing for Nixon to get home from his first day of Kindergarten!  And today I will be filling 650 water balloons to prepare for our last day celebration.   So while I am off making my arsenal, let’s check out the {Read More}
