Our Home, At Christmas

Hello and happy Monday! I'm way behind on our annual Christmas home tour post, but since I still have a couple of days until Christmas is officially here, I figured I'd still post it.I love holiday decorating--- if I had a bigger house, I would be the lady down the street with more than one tree…maybe two…or three…...more

Our Weekend...

The other day I checked out Harper's daycare report (a sheet her teachers send home daily with information about what she ate, diapers, what books they read, what songs they sang, activities, etc) and I noticed "jingle bells" was on the list.I asked her"did you sing jingle bells today?""nooooooooo""yes you did!""noooooooo"So I started to sing it, and sure enough, she broke into a little dance that can only be described as "so Harper." She did that same little dance during her daycare Christmas party on Friday. It was fun to spend more time in her class and meet some of the parents who we usually only see on a coming-and-going basis.Saturday we did a lot around the house and took a quick trip to Michael's to pick up some last-minute crafting/decor stuff.

Atlantis Resort- Paradise Island Review

When we were picking a vacation destination for a family trip earlier this year, I was looking into options and saw that a friend of mine had traveled to Atlantis recently with her husband and toddler son. I checked out the website and there were a ton of attractions that appealed to me--- water slides, aquariums with tens of thousands of fish and other aquatic species, a splash pad for kids, lots of excursions and experiences, etc...not to mention the gorgeous beach and abundant pools! I figured if we had bad weather, we would have other things we could do at the resort ....more

Holiday Gift Guide: Toddler Girl

Christmas shopping for a toddler is fun--- but I think we can all agree on one thing--- there are always too many toys! With the limited space we have, I try to make it a point to store away and/or donate toys that are no longer used or that she's grown out of, but I couldn't resist picking up some new items for the holidays. I love seeing her expressions as she opens and discovers new toys and books.Below are some gift ideas if you have a young toddler like me! ...more
