What To do on Spring Break – Day 2

This was Saturday, which was technically the first day of Spring Break, but I am counting it as Day 2. The kids had a blast playing up in the woods and outside on this fine Saturday before Easter Sunday. My oldest and youngest went outside first, it meant I couldn’t take a shower because it was a beautiful day and there was no time for Mama to shower. I just threw some clothes on and fixed my pigtail braids and ventured outside with them. They had fun being goofy, I called it a yoga lesson. My middle child, Aj, ventured […]

A Wonderful Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is normally  just another day for me, if the kids are here they wake up and find their Easter baskets that the Easter Bunny hid all over the house for them. When the kids are gone, like this past Easter, then it’s simply just another day. The Easter Bunny visits and hides the baskets but the kids do not get to find them until they return home on Monday. As most of you know that talk to me often or read my blog, I became an aunt for the first time in January and so this year a […]

Brotherly Love … Aj and Baby K

Sorry I am stuck on calling Baby K … just that Baby K and probably will forever but he is three and he is a BIG KID NOW. We had this discussion by the swingset about him being a kid now and me not being allowed to call him Baby K anymore, sigh. I love spending time with my boys, especially this past week. Normally they would be at each other badly having Aj out of school and all but they actually had a lot of quality time together. On our walk around the pond, they had to see who […]

Where To Purchase Craft Supplies for Family Craft Time

One thing that my kids and I love is craft time. I swear we have craft supplies all over the house in various hiding spots so that the three year old can’t get his little hands on them. From beads to yarn and paint, we have it all hidden in cupboards and totes so that when it’s a rainy day we can sit at the dining room table and enjoy some creative craft time! In the past I have purchased crafts at various stores or received odd ball items for free from the family who knows how much we love […]

Easter Day at the Happily Blended Household

I don’t know what type of traditions you all have on Easter, but we have a tradition that involves a sneaky Easter Bunny hiding all of the kids baskets every Easter. The kids wake up and must find their baskets hidden in odd places around the house. This year, the big kids found their baskets almost immediately but the little one who had a basket in plain sight couldn’t find his.  The big sis Ki was right on top of the pout face and helped K find his Easter basket so in no time, around 6am the kids were checking […]

Started Our Easter Weekend with Town Egg Hunt

Every year our local recreation department puts on an Easter egg hunt for preschool age children. I have to admit I haven’t gone every single year but when I remember to go, I do. This year I remembered only because I am on their email list so an email came through informing me that the egg hunt was going to be more of a drop & hunt this year. The recreation department teamed up with our small airport and planes would be zooming over dropping eggs. Baby K and I got ready with basket in hand to head down to […]
