festive reindeer rice krispie treats

You know Dasher and Dancer, and the rest of them, but do you recall the most delicious reindeer of all? Yesterday the kids and I made these cocoa krispie reindeer treats. I melted the butter and marshmallows together, and the kids helped me add the cocoa krispies to the pot and topped them with sprinkles […]

Havarti & Cheddar mac and cheese

Two nights ago I had the biggest dinner fail ever!! I’m normally pretty good about whipping a meal up whether I’ve made it before or not, but Wednesday night was a complete disaster. I decided to cook chiles rellenos recipe. Please note, it was a new recipe and I have never made chiles rellenos before. […]

Goat Cheese, sage & bacon Turkey Cheeseball

No holiday is complete without cheese. None! I’m normally all about the cheese boards, but the thought of this turkey cheeseball was so fun in my head that I had to put it together. Thanksgiving can be a holiday that embraces the cheeseball, right? Better than mockolate! I’m giving air fives to all of my […]

Spider web shapes

Now that we have almost two months of homeschool under our belts, can I call myself a homeschool mom? I certainly feel like one. Some days are great and we get through lessons easily, other days Peyton is not into it, Emory wants me to go through school with him at the same exact time […]

Chocolate witch hats

Earlier this week we played ghost and booed some of our friends! It’s a tradition I always look forward to. I still remember the first time I took Peyton when she was two-years-old… she cried when we left every house because she didn’t get the concept of dropping off treats to surprise our friends! It’s […]

Home sweet Home School

Back to school… talk about a bad time to be an enneagram nine!! For those of you not familiar with the enneagram, nines (me) tend to be indecisive and easily swayed by others, and while I’ve felt a pull to keep the kids home and teach them myself during the pandemic, I can’t tell you […]

IkeA baby gym makeover

Sage’s newest trick is being able to grab on to certain things. She’s recently become interested in batting at her baby gym and even holds some of the wooden toys while she plays. It’s so cute and a great way to keep her occupied when her siblings aren’t around to entertain her. A baby’s routine […]

Three Months with Sage Emelia

Our baby girl turned three months yesterday and while it seems like a short amount of time, it’s also hard to remember life without her. She’s been the sweetest little addition to our family and I’m so grateful to be her mama. I can’t believe we were ever on the fence about having another because […]

American Flag Brownies with Mascarpone Frosting

I’m back at it with another Fourth of July recipe! This my second one this week, which is pretty impressive considering I’ve been extremely silent around here lately. Holidays always motivate me and get my creative mind going, so after this post, you will likely not hear from me again for awhile – ha! Making […]

Fourth of July Bagel Board

It’s so strange to think about how different the Fourth of July will be this year. Last year, we watched our town’s parade, had a ton of fun with a bunch of our friends and their kids in our backyard, celebrated my mom’s birthday with my extended family and then watched the fireworks with Brett’s […]
