Puking Pumpkin Experiment

As my kids get older (particularly my boys), I'm always looking for fun activities that they will think are cool.  Gone are the days of play dough and preschool crafts and here we are making  puking pumpkins - where has the time gone :)

Weekend Top 10


Sunday afternoon I took Luke and Griffin to the "Spooky Symphony" put on my the Plano Symphony Orchestra.  It was SO MUCH FUN!  Crafts, an instrument petting zoo, costumes and then a short concert featuring songs from lots of their favorite movies.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  It's been a great week over here... much less eventful than last week (thank goodness!) and it's a brand new quarter at school so I feel totally on top of things :) hahaha

PLUS it was cool enough for puffer coats in the mornings and so that cuteness was one of my FAVES!

Which Way to Witch School

I picked up  Which Way to Witch School on Amazon and we've read it at least once a day every day since then.  It's super cute and is probably Griffin's favorite Halloween book.  The book makes us giggle and the illustrations are entertaining.... and it rhymes which we love.  She's going to be a witch for Halloween and is into ALL things "witch" right now which is cracking me up because when I was her age I was OBSESSED with the Dorrie the Witch book series.

Outdoor Halloween Decor

I shared our indoor Halloween decorations a couple of weeks ago but am just now sharing the outside because NOBODY at my house was about to get out there on a ladder to hang spiderwebs when it was 100+ degrees.  I even threw out the idea of "maybe we don't decorate the outside this year" and the kids were having NONE OF THAT!  Cue a crisp, cool morning this weekend and here we are...

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!! This week has been a little bit overwhelming with house stuff (when it rains it pours, right??!?!) and this post has been extra fun to write because looking for the "happy" in kind of a crappy week was a good thing for me :)
Erika Narci and I are all sharing our FAVORITES from the week and if you'd like to join us all you have to do is grab our graphic, link back to one (or all) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.


First up on my list of FAVORITES are JACKETS in the morning!!!  It was in the fifties a few mornings this week and the puffy, cozy jackets were a FAVORITE.  I can handle a warm afternoon when it's crisp in the morning, amen?!?!?!

Blondies

My kids LOOOOVE the blondie mix from Trader Joe's and I've been on the hunt for a homemade recipe that's comparable.  I'm yet to find one that's as "cakey" and yet chewy as Trader Joe's BUT nobody has objected to me trying and I've come across a couple of REALLY good recipes.  The  recipe I'm sharing today is amazingly easy, chocked FULL of chocolate and these pair SO WELL with some sea salt sprinkled on top and served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Spooky Punch and Witch Leg Banner

One of our favorite Halloween books is Room on the Broom.  I feel like at this point it's pretty much a classic and today I'm sharing a couple of fun activities that could go along with the book OR just with Halloween fun in general.  

First up is one of my favorite Halloween traditions... "witches brew punch".  It's the EASIEST punch of all time but my kids LOVE it so much and when you present it in a smoking, bubbling cauldron it's pretty awesome.

Teacher Tuesday - Binder and Bookwork Edition


So last week when I mentioned that I FINALLY had a binder system in place that I was loving y'all pretty much demanded to SEE THE BINDERS!  So today I'm going to show you what is in all of my binders and why I'm loving this system :)
