How is it 2 weeks until Christmas already? How has it been 2 months since I last posted something? More on that another day... If you've seen some of my other toddler crafts, you know that I am a huge fan of minimal parental involvement in said projects. This craft is no different. It's a… Continue reading Christmas Toddler Craft
If you've seen my post about toddler cards, you know that this mami doesn't want to put a lot of work into a craft that's supposed to be done by a toddler. So when I saw a cute little fabric pumpkin at Target I thought to myself, "this would be perfect for Cupcake to decorate… Continue reading Fall Pumpkin Toddler Craft
¡Hola amigos! Today marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month! Hispanic Heritage Month goes from 9/15 - 10/15. I've always said that Hispanics are so extra that they couldn't just pick a calendar month - hahaha, I mean, jajaja! I actually just recently learned (thanks to a post by Spanish Mama) the reason behind the… Continue reading Hispanic Heritage Month

Happy New Year to all! And Happy Blogaversary to me! 3 years! It has been a great 3 years indeed. If you're a fan of The Middle on ABC, you'll remember that Sue Heck always themes her years.

Merry Christmas! In my house, Christmas doesn't truly end until Three Kings Day. Granted, it's not quite as magical anymore after the 25th. Also, Cupcake's birthday is before Three Kings Day, so we do want to pause Christmas & give her her own special day. BUT STILL - Three Kings Day marks the "official" end… Continue reading Homemade Christmas Gifts
It's National Collection Week! This is my 8th year participating in Operation Christmas Child. I love this practical & hands-on opportunity to give back. When you pack a show box, you don't just give a child material goods. You give them the gospel. You give them Hope. Capital H Hope. God's Hope.

Maybe that's why this year Lent has seemed a little less Jesus-y for me than in years prior. We just celebrated Christmas & here is Easter already.… Continue reading Easter Cake
