Halloween and the Lamest Aunt Ever

I didn’t make any costumes this year. None of the kids were particularly excited about Halloween or insistent upon any particular costume idea. I was itching to sew a princess dress but there was not a single mention of Disney royalty this year. It was a little disappointing. I really need some sewing therapy! Instead, we just recycled some previously worn costumes for those who are not “too old” for Halloween. One came up with…

Raising Farm Kids

Spring is in full swing here with flowers, rain, baby animals, pollen allergies, and softball games. We seem to always go from one busy season or challenge to another. I don’t think things will ever settle down, so I need to learn to embrace the busy and enjoy where we are in life. Our garden is woefully behind schedule but the animals are doing well. The new additions are three adorable Hereford calves, 75 chicks, five keets…

It was a nice thought. 😉 So, in an effort to keep it real around here, I thought we would do a little exhibit of “Craft & Consequence” Craft: First up, the girls made this lovely glittered fall leaf garland decorating their playhouse. All I did was hot glue the ribbons to the backs…

What Moms Really Need for Mother’s Day

I want to be totally honest. I am not Super Mom. Things are not always sunshine and roses around here. Yes, I squeeze in a lot of crafty things, but there are a lot of things I don’t do. When it comes to school, I am one of those slacker moms. I don’t check my kids’ school folders. Yes, I know that I should. The first kid or two I was all over that. Now,…
