My kids and I have been enjoying some adorable and delicious Christmas Tree Cake Toppers. They’re perfect for transforming ordinary cakes (or cupcakes) into festive eye-candy delights and my kids eat them just like lollipops! The sweet bonus? They’re really really easy to make. You’re welcome. For those who don’t have any Martha in you— you … More DIY: Christmas Tree Cake Toppers
We haven’t hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our house in a very long time. This year, we are hosting again and I’m excited to establish some sort of Thanksgiving tradition with the kids. Zoey is six now and she loves to help out in the kitchen. We’ve already talked about the menu and we are keeping … More DIY: Mason Jar Holiday Candleholders
Baking cookies is an activity that the kids really look forward to. We’ve been making a lot of sugar cookies and experimenting with different shapes. A few weeks ago, the kids and I baked gingerbread, snow angel and christmas tree cookies. I use the ready to bake sugar cookie dough. It makes baking with two young … More Christmas Sugar Cookies
Happy holidays! I can’t believe tomorrow is already Christmas Eve and I still don’t have everything ready. Most presents are still hidden and unwrapped, we haven’t baked cookies for Santa and we’ve yet to figure out where to go tomorrow night for church service. The old churches in Boston are so incredibly gorgeous and massive- … More Happy Holidays!
I know what you’re thinking. I’m crazy with all the holiday decor going on in my house. You’re probably right. It’s a bit insane but you can’t blame a girl for being in the holiday spirit! Can I say that I’m doing it for my two little cuties? I only get to do this once … More My Home Holiday Decor
As you may know, I love keeping my house happy and cheery for the holidays! Here’s my current coffee table situation. Aside from the fresh greenery, everything else I’ve had for years so it was just a matter of restyling them collectively to fit the holiday theme. Candles are such a great way to keep … More My Holiday Coffee Table
Right after Thanksgiving, the kids and I worked on assembling gingerbread houses. We ended up making four mini-gingerbread houses, displayed them on a cake stand, popped a lid over them and called them our little snow globe gingerbread village. To add to the snow globe theme, I also made additional snow globes using cooking jars, … More DIY Snow Globe Village
Each year holidays get more and more special. Zoey is four and Axel is almost two so they are participating in all the holiday decorations and preparations.

It makes me sad that Halloween has come and gone. This marks the beginning of the holiday season which I’m still not ready for. It’s not that I’m not in the holiday spirit; it’s the fact that time is flying by so fast. This means only one thing- the kiddos are growing up much quicker … More Halloween 2015
We make an effort to take the kids on a ‘family surprise field trip’ every weekend now that the weather is warm. It was such a brutal winter that this glorious nice weather feels like a gift. It wouldn’t make sense if we didn’t take advantage of it. Part of our parenting style is positive … More Sun and Sand
Tidbits of life lately via instagram and last yr’s holiday video… Last Sunday’s breakfast. This is our typical weekend morning meal. Hubs made sunny-side up eggs, bacon, and croissants while Zoey and I made hot chocolate with marshmallows. Here’s a view outside my office window yesterday. Snow was coming down hard. No worries- I had my … More The Snowfall + Tidbits Lately
Merry X-Mas everyone! We had the best time last night. Our family gatherings has gotten a bit OFC (out of control). Lots of food, crazy laughter, and love. The sweetest part of the night was when everyone gathered around to watch Zoey open all her gifts from her loving aunts and uncles. It was such … More A Little Holiday Video

Another holiday on the horizon. Isn’t cool that our calendars are filled with special occasions for us to celebrate? Although we will be traveling this Easter, I’m still hopeful that we can have an Easter Egg Hunt for Ms. Zoey. Kids are so precious and they light up over the most innocent things. Zoey clapped … More DIY Live Love Laugh Easter Eggs
