You Rule Valentine!

For preschool valentines this year I showed my son a bunch of ideas on Pinterest and let him pick one.  Last year we did the "Have a Ball Valentine!", which I chose.  This year he chose "You Rule Valentine!".  And although there were several really cute printables already out there, Benzo made a new simple… Continue reading You Rule Valentine!

Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices

So simple right?  Little orange slices dipped in chocolate. When I saw the idea on Pinterest I knew it was something I could actually do instead of leaving it buried in the depths of Pinterest boards, never to be heard of again.

During that period I tried several different homemade… Continue reading Homemade Cold Remedies
