Halloween has never been a big holiday at our house, but we like any excuse to have fun as a family. I’m all for dressing up in silly costumes and getting free candy. However, we do not purchase a new costume for each kid every year. I have accumulated a closet of costumes. So . . . → Read More: In Costume
You know how I love holidays! When I found out Cool Whip now had frosting, I HAD to try it. I loaded the kids up in the van and went to Walmart. We found the Cool Whip Frosting in the freezer section.
The kids and I argued discussed which flavor to frost our Halloween . . . → Read More: Fall Fun Cakes with #CoolWhipFrosting #CBias
Our visit to Yesterland Farm was lots of fun. We met some friends there, ate a picnic lunch, let the kids roam and play while we visited as well. The grounds were beautiful with lots of photo opportunities!

Oh how I have enjoyed the cooler Texas weather! It just makes everything feel so cozy and homey! One Saturday we actually didn’t have any where we needed to be, and it felt so great to work around the house.

The Pumpkin Patch that we love to go to in Flower Mound, TX has always been free until this year. They began charging a nominal $5 per parking. It is still, in my opinion, well worth the drive! My husband decided that he could do without the trip this year so being the die hard . . . → Read More: The Pumpkin Patch
This is something I love to do for holidays. I may have over done it just a little on the marshmallows this time, but my kids didn’t complain! They keep asking for “that special cereal.” It is simply a bowl of crispy rice cereal topped with marshmallows, Fall colored sugars, and sprinkles. Now how much . . . → Read More: An Easy Festive Fall Breakfast for Kids
