St. Patrick’s Day Word Search

My husband LOVES St. Patrick’s Day. He loves everything about Ireland and one of his dreams is to go visit the Country. One day! Last month I posted about a cute Valentine’s Day word search for my kids. I thought I’d share the St. Patrick’s Day word search I did with you all today to get you ready for the fun holiday that is coming up! I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I am...

Thoughts and Announcement Fun

Having a newborn has definitely made me realize that there are times when I want to be creative and do things on my own, and then there are times when I really need to rely on others. I have four children. This isn’t my first trip around the block. I know how recovery and things go, and generally know what to expect. This time around, however, has been rough. I am exhausted. I am overwhelmed....

Family Tradition: Back-to-School Family Dinner

I wanted to do something fun with the family this month to celebrate Jack finally getting to go to kindergarten. (He’s a November birthday so he’s been ready for kindergarten for a while now.) I wanted to do something small that wouldn’t be overwhelming, but still something that would be fun and out-of-the-ordinary. I saw THIS cute idea on dating divas of a back-to-school-night dinner, and you know what, it was perfect for what I...

Prepping for General Conference {LDS Family Traditions}

{This was a picture taken on my phone of my first trip to General Conference 6 months ago. Crazy!} Every 6 months the LDS Church holds a special General Conference for its members, where we receive instruction and inspiration from our Church Leaders. It’s actually one of my very favorite time of year. I always feel very re-charged and ready to improve myself afterwards, and there are usually some pretty amazing talks that feel like...

Indoor Family Winter Campout {Fun family traditions}

Every year our family has a fun tradition of going camping indoors during the winter time. Jim & I aren’t the biggest campers, but we sure do enjoy it from the comfort of our own home. I originally got the idea of doing an indoor camping night from a speaker at BYU Education week, Shelley Wille, when I was in college. Once I got married and had a family of my own, this was one...

St. Patrick’s Day 2013 {Fun holiday traditions}

I am a little bummed that I got sick (just a cold, thank goodness) right around this holiday because I didn’t end up making some of the fun things I had planned. Even so, we still had a lot of fun on St. Patrick’s Day (or as Jackson likes to say “Happy Green Day”). We started off the morning by surprising the kids with some Leprechaun Lucky Charms & Green Milk for breakfast. It was...

3.14 Happy Pi Day! {Fun Family Traditions}

Happy pi day! Every March 14th our family celebrates pi (3.1415…). I’m pretty sure in 2015 we are going to go all out crazy. 🙂 How do we celebrate? By making sure we have some yummy pie, of course! Yes. We are nerds. And we like it that way. Normally we enjoy pi day with some pie after dinner, but I’ll be at a meeting tonight and wasn’t sure when we’d all be together, so...
