The Crippled Lamb (Review & Giveaway!)

Sometimes we just feel left out, don’t we? I know I’ve had my fair share of disappointments (well into adulthood) when it comes to feeling left out of things that I think I should be included in. It’s hard. It hurts. It makes you want to crawl under the covers and sulk for a while. […]

The Grace Card DVD Review {& Giveaway}

Let’s face it, Hollywood just isn’t too concerned with putting out movies with a Christian Worldview these days. It just isn’t the stuff that sells in this broken world. Often, when there is a movie with a Christian theme, it’s considered “cheesy” and low budget. The Grace Card is anything but that! When I was […]

Weekend Reading

My Favorite Family Portrait…

One of the pictures I didn’t share yesterday when I talked about the “My” Sight Word Book Jonah and I made together was this… Did you catch it? Look closely… Did you see those extra bodies on the right hand side? You see, even though our family TECHNICALLY looks like this (atleast for the next […]

Mommy & Me: “My” Sight Word Book (Printable)

We’ve entered the world of “Sight Words” around here! I’ve recently taken notice of some readiness for sight words with Jonah and decided to give it a try. I wasn’t very scientific in choosing a word to start with, it sort of randomly happened one day as we were preparing dinner. Jonah was looking at […]

The quiet before the labor…

I’m here. Baby is not…yet. I’ve had lots of fun things I’ve planned on posting for you, but well, it just didn’t happen…yet. In the past week, I’ve found myself turning inward and going to my soul’s quiet place instead of writing and sharing with the world. While there is still plenty on my “to-do”  […]

Trust me, we’ll be back to the the last of the Pirate Party details soon… Treasure #1:  I posted over at The MOB Society about the Hidden Treasure we’ve found over the past 10 […]

Pirate Birthday Party: Treasure Chest Cake

I can’t claim this idea from Family Fun, but I can point you to the video tutorial! A few thoughts: Making this cake was slightly frustrating….but then again, it could’ve just been me. My cake was a little too crumbly and caused me issues when I tried to frost it. Possibly humidity and summer heat?  […]
