This New Year's Eve Party Game is fun because you get to remember and reminisce on all the good (and funny) things that have happened throughout the year.

New Year’s Eve Party Game

Are you done with Christmas, and moving on with the New Year? Even though the Christmas holiday isn’t technically over, I know I have to plan my New Year’s Eve party before Christmas, or it won’t happen!   This year, between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, we have 3 birthdays (mine and two brother’s-in-law), Christmas (obvs.) a second BIG Christmas…

These Christmas goodies take less than 15 minutes to put together, and taste super yummy!

Christmas Goodies You Can Make In Under 15 Minutes

I love to make Christmas goodies, but the thing that really holds me up is the mess and time it takes to complete. Rolled-out sugar cookies that you use cookie cutters for? Yeah, those aren’t happening at my house, sorry kids. I mean, they’re cute and all, but they are such a mess! Flour on the counter, in my hair,…

Christmas Gifts for Grandparents

My sister-in-law just had a baby (her first!) last week, and she’s been looking for a gift to give the new grandparents. Her parents don’t have any grandchildren until just now, so she’s pretty excited to get them something ‘from’ her baby. While it’s cutting it a little short before Christmas, there’s still plenty of time to get something delivered…

Sometimes it’s easier for people to buy us a family group gift, because we have such a big family. I mean, coming up with a gift for each of my five kids, as well as my husband and I, can get difficult and expensive (believe me, I know!) A family gift is a great alternative if you have a lot…

DIY Christmas Wreaths

Happy 9th Day of Blogmas! We’ve made it through more than a week, thanks for sticking in there with me! This has been more difficult for me to keep up with than I thought it would be.

How to Get into the Christmas Spirit When you Just Aren’t Feeling it

I never know how I’m going to be feeling about Christmas each year. I mean, I always get annoyed when the stores put up their Christmas decorations before Halloween, but how am I really going to feel about Christmas? Am I going to have to fake the Christmas Spirit? Fake it ’til you make it, right? Some years are harder…

We've got a list of gifts for crafters that you've probably never heard of! Subscription boxes and online classes, just to name a few!

Gifts for the Crafter in Your Life

I love to do crafts, but I’d never call myself a crafter. I’m not very good at it, but I like to do it. There are a few requirements when it comes to me actually doing a craft:   1. It has to be easy. 2. I need instructions. 3. I need to have all my supplies ready to go.…

Family Friendly Christmas Movies to Enjoy this Holiday

Can watching movies be considered a tradition? I hope so, because we have a whole list our family loves to watch during the Christmas season. This year is lining up to be so busy, we’ve actually scheduled specific movies on our calendar to make sure we don’t miss watching some of our favorites (is that weird?) Anyway, I’ve pulled together…
