Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios Bars & “Buy a Box, Give a Box” with Cheerios

Sundae Fundae Back-to-School Party

Our Kid-Planned Ice Cream Sundae Party was so much fun! Letting the boys take ownership of the party planning was a great lesson in responsibility as they chose ice cream toppings, made invitations, and even helped set up for the party.

Bake Me A Memory…

To me, Christmas just isn’t complete without doing my traditional baking and candy making. It started way back when I was a little girl.
