Apple Tree Craft

We found this super easy apple craft at Reading Confetti! We used green tissue paper that I found at the dollar store, red markers, and cardboard rolls. I cut the rolls to make branches, but if your kids are a little older and more proficient with scissors they could easily do it on their own!

Luke’s 7th birthday is coming up on October 30, and its his year to have a party. He had a party during his last year in Montessori, which was a small class. We had a bounce house at our home, and I was able to invite everyone in his class. Now that he is in


Real Food Recipe 2- Whole Chicken and Homemade Chicken Stock

Until about six months ago, I always bought my chicken stock from the store. I knew it was high in sodium, but making my own seemed like such a daunting task.

Date Night?!

Tomorrow night my husband and I are headed into the city forĀ a concert and leaving the littles with a sitter. For the first time ever, I’m nervous about it. No, not nervous, SCARED. And I’m not scared that something is going to happen to the kids, or that the sitter is going to be terrible.
