    Tips for Traveling with a Toddler

    A lot of times as Thanksgiving and the Holiday season approaches, so does travel. Before kids traveling is easy. After you have kids it can get a bit more difficult. Especially if you have babies or toddlers. In my opinion, traveling with my kids as toddlers has been much more difficult than it was when my son was a baby. My tips for traveling with a toddler are for traveling on an airplane, because that’s how we travel due to our family being across the country. Tips for Traveling with a Toddler Take a Red-eye flight This one works great for my son. Since he was 6 months old we…

    Easy Pumpkin Pie Truffles

    We are officially a few days away from Thanksgiving! I’m not ready for pumpkin season to be over, but I’m extremely ready for the holiday season. I made pumpkin pie truffles over this past weekend. I wanted to make sure I had as much pumpkin as possible before Thanksgiving. They were a huge hit. David didn’t like them, but he doesn’t count. He hates sweets. Since they were so popular, I decided to share them with you. Items used: Food Processor Mixing Bowl Wilton’s White Candy Melts Pumpkin Spice Truffles To start out, I put 9 graham cracker sheets in my food processor, and pulsed until they were a ground up finely.…

    Easy Fall Wreath Craft for Toddlers

    Fall is my favorite season, even more so now that I live in Las Vegas. The only thing that I don’t like is that there are no beautiful trees or falling leaves. I try to compensate by buying fake leaves and decorating with them. One way I wanted to use the fake leaves to decorate is by having DJ make a wreath with them. I made this to be an easy fall wreath craft for toddlers. That way any of you can easily do this too. If you want to make this as well you can use fake or real leaves if you have them.  Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate…

    Puff Paint Ghosts

    While scrolling through Pinterest recently I kept seeing something called puff paint. I thought it looked so cool. I decided that since it was Halloween time, I would make some puff paint for DJ & Brooklyn to paint a puff paint ghost. I left the puff paint white since they were going to be using it for ghosts. To start I cut out two ghosts out of regular printer paper, and then I made the puff paint. I made way too much for us. I used half a cup of shaving cream and half a cup of white glue and just mixed them together. If I was making more color…

    Outdoor Halloween Decorations 2018

    I am one of those people who love to have decorations for every holiday. I’m also one of those people who is pretty lazy with decorations, unless it’s Christmas. Luckily, Brooklyn’s godfather (and one of David’s best friends), Rich seems to love decoration for every holiday too (and isn’t lazy). I’d love to say another big thank you to Rich for making the outside of our house look incredible for Halloween. I love the decorations so much that I wanted to share with you all our outdoor Halloween decorations. Outdoor Halloween Decorations 2018 I wanted to start by showing you the front of my house and the driveway. I am…

    Mini Individual Apple Crumble Pies

    Now that it’s the fall, I seem to have an abundance of apples from apple picking. One great way to use up those apples is to bake with them. I decided to look for a new way to make apple pie, and I found a great one in my Harry Potter Unofficial Cookbook. I found one for mini individual apple crumble pies. While I did use the recipe in the cookbook as a guide, I did improvise a tiny bit with the filling. I used four granny smith apples, instead of two granny smith & two gala apples. Also, I had a bit a trouble with my crust.. because I…
