“Bee” Day Party: Bumble Bee Birthday Party for Our 1-Year-Old

I love decorating for my kids’ birthday parties and I go all-out, especially for their first birthdays. I suspect that this is something that will change as my kiddos get older because they will call the shots for their special days and probably end my party decorating craze era.

Russian Sage Bundle for Rustic Fall or Winter Decorating

Each autumn we trim our Russian Sage, or Perovskia Atriplicifolia, nearly to the ground. We do this to keep our plants healthy and thriving. Let me tell you, it works like a charm and these beauties bloom a gorgeous purple all through the following summer. Their aroma reminds me of hearty sage and they are loved by bumble bees. On hot afternoons our fence sounds like a buzzing electric line because of the busy pollinators working from one tiny flower to the next. Continue reading

A Letter from Leo the Gerbil

Before school let out for summer, Daddy D agreed to bring Leo the Gerbil home from Kiddo A’s class. Kiddo A and his buddies have loved caring for this furry critter. We also think Leo has adapted to his new surroundings nicely. Leo recently asked if he could let the other children from Mrs. Hyde’s class know how he is doing. Naturally, I obliged, and have turned the keyboard over to our temporary pet gerbil so that he can give his own update…

Toddler Swim & Sun Outfits

I am a four seasons girl! There are many things I love and appreciate about each one and if I lived somewhere warm year around, I’d miss the qualities each has to offer. The fall brings beautiful reds, yellows and oranges as the Aspen trees change colors and the chill in the air makes me want to throw on a sweatshirt with my flip flops. Heading into winter I’m always excited for ski season and adore cuddle time with my family. For a brief period during the spring, the beautiful rolling green hills make me feel like I live in Ireland. For me, summer is always about water. It’s about lake days, pool time, sprinklers, slip-n-slides, water tables, and squirt guns.

Must-Have Toddler Boy Clothes

Man, do I have warm weather on the brain! I have been dreaming of vacations, days by the water, shorts, grilling with friends, excessive amounts of playground time, and just about everything else I associate with spring and summer. Sadly, I really have no excuse. We had a pretty mild winter in Wyoming (until last week) with some warm days to give us breaks from the snow. But, regardless of what type of winter we have, it seems like I’m always ready for a change of season this time of year. So, I put a couple toddler boy outfit ideas together Continue reading

Printable: Things To Do

If you are like us, you want the caregivers to your children to be engaged during their time together. We leave our son very seldom and when we do it’s with select people. On the occasion that we do leave him in the care of others we like to provide a “play list” or list of ideas to keep him…and them…entertained. This is important for a couple of reasons. First, even the people most familiar with toddlers and childcare can run out of ideas. So, we like to offer a list of activities to take the hard work out of it. This helps the caregiver successfully keep our son engaged without a lot of worry or stress. Second, we want him to have a fun and positive experience when we are away. We already know our son enjoys these activities and we hope the caregiver will, too. Continue reading
