A Frozen Birthday Party

{Earth Day Activity} Earth Girl Shirts

Last year we made an Earth Girl out of paper, but this year I wanted the girls to really get the idea that they can be Earth Girls by taking care of our planet. I want them to recycle, and pick up litter and live as “green” as possible and I’ve been thinking of how …

25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

I’ve seen this meme floating around the blogosphere recently, and decided to join in the fun. 1. I’m happiest when we can spend a chilled Saturday at home as a family. 2. … especially if it involves a morning of sleeping-in (very rare). 3. I’ve always wanted to travel the world. I lived in South …
