Disney Pixar COCO Coloring Pages

COCO Coloring Pages

I always look forward to seeing what magic Disney Pixar will create with their movies. When I first started seeing previews for COCO, I was honestly a little hesitant. I wasn’t sure how a movie about dead people would be for kids. I had faith that Disney Pixar would turn it into something heartwarming and that it would be loved just as much as every one of their movies has been. When we went to a movie recently, I saw a new trailer for COCO and I knew that I my suspicions were correct in that it would be a heartwarming film that my family would enjoy. [Read more…]

If you have a child in diapers, you probably understand the struggle of keeping all of the diaper gear organized. Diaper storage can be a real problem! Our diapers and wipes were all over the place, leaving the room looking like a cluttered mess all of the time. Thankfully those days are behind us now because we have this fun, modern under the crib diaper organization!

Clay Ice Cream Sensory Activity

We love to come up with different ways to create at our house. My 5 year old is constantly crafting in some way or another. As much as she loves to draw, color, and make crafts out of paper, she can get tired of those things and looks for other ways to be creative. That is why I love the idea of having a few little boxes ready with different activities that she can do, but they are considered to be a little more special and are things that she doesn’t play with every single day. I love sensory activities and this clay ice cream sensory activity has been a big hit at our house!

When Life Gives You Lemons

This post contains affiliate links.

Wednesday was going to be a busy day at our house. It was a busy day, just not exactly how we had planned. I had been working for a few days leading up until Wednesday to finish our Halloween costumes. We were going to have a family photo shoot so that I could share our costumes with you all next week. I also was going to take some photos in a darling long cardigan that I have been wearing non stop. We of course had school, errands, and other work related items on our agenda. The next thing I knew, all of those plans changed. When I went to pick up Harper from school, she wanted to show me her new trick. Her new trick was doing the monkey bars. I think she was a little overly excited because she started a little too quickly and almost as quickly as she was up on the monkey bars, she was down. She fell straight on her back, with her arm behind her back. She started screaming instantly and I was sure she had just broken her arm.

I scooped her up and ran her into our van and drove home, right down the street to ask Dave for his opinion and it wasn’t 30 seconds later that we were heading to the doctor’s office. We went to our family doctor who took x-rays and confirmed my suspicions… broken wrist and elbow! We were sent straight to the orthopedic surgeon where there were more x-rays and a lot more tears. Finally, there was a little relief when Harper finally got a splint put on.

As we were driving home, I looked in my rear view mirror and looked at my little girl who was sleeping in her booster seat. She looked exhausted. Suddenly all of those missed errands, unanswered emails, and unfinished business didn’t matter anymore. None of our plans had worked the way we had “planned”, but that was okay.

Being a mom

So instead of the beautiful planned, staged, and styled photos that I had planned to take of my new favorite Cents of Style cardigan, I will show you how I have been wearing it these past two days. Big sister won’t let us cuddle her because she is in too much pain, but we play on the couch and on the floor next to her, so she doesn’t feel like she is all alone.  [Read more…]

Making food for a Halloween party can be hard! Many of the options are too creepy or two time consuming. That is why I love the idea of making easy Halloween skewers that are quick to make and can be made in either a healthy or a non-healthy option!

Yarn and Eyeball Halloween Pumpkins

I love creating my own Halloween decor! I am not a fan of scary Halloween decor and I’m not really a fan of overly cutsey Halloween decor either. It puts me in kind of a weird spot that is hard to find stuff that I really love. Luckily, I love Halloween crafting! I whipped up these yarn and eyeball pumpkins last week and I LOVE them something fierce. They took me no time at all and I just am a little obsessed with how they turned out!
