Tips for Bringing Your Toddler to Mass

I wish there was an exact answer on how to keep your kids fully entertained during mass when they are so young!  But I will say there are tips and tricks that can help your little ones stay sane during church.  Jeff and I were nervous about bringing Carter to Christmas Eve mass because our […]

Carter’s First Haircut

I think my first-time-mom syndrome kicked in just a bit on this one.  For the longest time Carter’s hair has been getting in his face constantly, and it was driving Jeff nuts.  I never had a problem with just swiping it out of his eyes, but Jeff thought it was getting too long.  We decided […]

Finger Painting

Even though there is no snow by us quite yet, it sure feels like winter.  We were cooped up inside yesterday, and our usual toys and books were starting to bore Carter!  I looked around our house to see what else we could do and I remembered we had some finger paint in our craft […]

More Than Just a Pile of Leaves

“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 This time last fall Carter was only six months, and we were celebrating milestones of him starting to crawl, babble, and all of his first holidays.  Now, Carter is 18 months and things have changed.  I have […]

Pumpkin Painting

Now that Carter is older, I feel like holidays are getting more and more fun!  I love getting into the holiday spirit no matter which one it is.  I love to decorate, bake, dress up, you name it!  Our decorations for fall and Halloween are lacking a bit this year from moving, but that hasn’t […]

Little Guy Sport

I always love sharing cute gift ideas especially when it comes to babies!  It’s fun to share my own reviews on the products that I have used for Carter too.  Another thing I love doing is supporting small businesses.  I know so many people who have small businesses and just a little bit of sharing […]

Moon Sand

Being a stay at home mom can be super rewarding.  I’ve watched Carter grow from the moment he was brought into this world.  Even though it can be challenging at times, I am so thankful for the opportunity that I get to stay at home with him.  Most days we play outside as much as […]

EZPZ Mats

I’m that mom who enjoys following other mom’s on Instagram.  I love to see moms sharing moments with their kids, even if it’s during tantrums and sassy moments.  I like to see what products they love and use on a daily basis too!  The only way to really find out if certain things are going […]

The Stitched Co.

It’s funny when you become a mom, and you don’t really shop for yourself anymore.  It’s all about the kiddos now!  I love picking out clothes for Carter.  We normally just grab things from here and there, but when it comes to special occasions I love finding unique items, especially for holidays and parties. One […]

Our New Favorite Snack

I want to use this blog to share with you what we enjoy and love to keep in our home, especially when it comes to food!  One of the things Carter and I like to do in our spare time while Jeff is away at training camp, is roam the aisles at Target.  I’m sure […]
