Make Your Own Halloween Costume {DIY Frozen Pond Halloween Costume} #FunCraftsWithMom

Sometimes the best costumes aren't the ones you buy in a store but the ones you make at home. I still remember when my mom decided to make my Halloween costume in 5th grade. It was a mummy costume and she shredded sheets and I put on white sweats and she sewed the strips to my sweats. It was a fun low-cost costume but it took forever. I remember being so sick of standing there while she was so … [Read more...]

It's not a secret that I love shopping for Sawyer's clothes. Some might even say I'm a bit obsessed.

With all the clothes that Sawyer has I've been asked many times how I organize and store it all. I've finally managed … [Read more...]

I love my local bike trail. I can reach the entrance with just a small walk out my front door which makes it incredibly convenient. This time of year it becomes so beautiful and I love pulling my camera out with me. There are gorgeous leaves falling everywhere and they look so pretty all together. Last time we were out there I let Sawyer get out of the stroller and we had a fun time … [Read more...]

First day of school with dad gavin johnny

I can't believe it is September! I feel like summer just started but instead it's ending. I'm sitting here thinking of all the things I said would be done by now and all the things I want to get done this fall. It just seems like the seasons go faster and faster and time just never sits still anymore. It's another school year starting today here and my boys have grown so much! Johnny is the … [Read more...]

I know things here have been slow. I've been off enjoying my kids, my family, and the warm air. One advantage of being a blogger is my schedule is flexible and I want to be able to look back and see all the fun we had- not how much work I got done. I'm not saying I'm not working because I am. In fact I've been working really hard on some behind the scenes things and I'm really excited about what I … [Read more...]

Sawyer James on Well Beach in Maine.

I love Maine. We go every year since we have family that lives in Wells but this year instead of going on our regular trip of either Hampton Beach, NH or Lake George, NY we decided to go to Maine and get a hotel instead of staying with family. We went with our in-laws as we do every July and it was great having hotel rooms together right on the beach. I love Wells Beach but the tide comes up … [Read more...]

Magenta Pink Lilies

We've been working hard on our landscape for quite a few years now and this was the year to finally start looking around at flowers. Neither of us really know too much about flowers and honestly have avoided them at all costs. We have been gardening vegetables for several years but never flowers. We bought flowering bushes two years ago and not all have survived. Winters are the hardest for us as … [Read more...]
