Spooky Sammie

SO, the photo above is my attempt at a skeleton PBJ. Not terrible, eh? Here was the inspiration from […]

Musical Instrument Museum (MIM)

Phoenix got a new museum this summer — and what a museum! My parents took the kids to the new Musical Instrument Museum shortly after it opened, and they were pleasantly surprised at how much the kids loved it. They jokingly asked them if they liked it more than Disneyland – and they said they […]

I haven’t made these yet, but I think it’s a great idea for a thoughtful holiday gift. (Thinking about the holidays takes my mind off the 100+ degree weather.) You basically get […]

Pizza Blobs

I was flipping through some old online photo albums and remembered that I haven’t shared this tasty recipe with you yet.

Marshmallows + Toothpicks =

If you’re looking for a fun, creative activity for your kids, this one is a big hit with mine. I got the idea a few years ago from my son’s preschool teacher. All you need are two ingredients: marshmallows and toothpicks. Either the small or large size will do. A paper plate or paper towel […]
