Handmade Sunflowers

I'm always looking for fun ways to make gifts for teachers or family members.  Last year we made these handmade sunflowers for Michael's teachers during Teacher's Appreciation week.  You could make these for pretty much anything and is such a great keepsake.  Here's how I made the flowers (look for a post about how to make the vases soon).

Easter Basket Ideas

Easter baskets, themed Easter baskets, Easter basket ideas, themed Easter baskets and what to put in them, Easter,
Every Easter I try to figure out what to put in Michael's basket.  Most of the time I just go to the store and see if something inspires me.  This year I knew that I wanted to try and go for a theme.  That then got me thinking about all the different types of themes one could do for a basket.

Decorating for a Bunny Hop

Never heard of a Bunny Hop?  Neither had I two years ago when it was first introduced to me at Michael's preschool.  Since I had no idea what to do for a Bunny Hop, the first year all I had was the filled eggs required.  At that first hop is when I learned that it's basically the Easter version of a trunk-or-treat.  So, last year I was ready.  Here's how I decorated for the Bunny Hop.

St. Patrick's Day Treat

a delicious dessert for St Patrick's Day, family friendly St Patrick's Day dessert, Lucky Charms, St Patrick's Day,
Last year I wanted to try and add a little more to our already special St. Patrick's Day activities.  I decided that since Michael liked rice crispy treats and liked Lucky Charms, I would combine the two and make a delicious treat for the family.

Even though the books have been wrapped for about two weeks, I'm just now getting around to writing about this year's countdown the night before.  This has become a really fun tradition for us and with Michael loving books even more, I see this lasting for several more years.

Over the past several years it seems that every where you turn, you see something about Elf on the Shelf.  Let's be honest, those elves are creepy looking.  Plus who wants to clean up after the shenanigans that some of the elves do to the house?  Here's the alternative that we've been doing for the past two years.
