Baby showers are such an exciting event for the mother-to-be and her closest friends and family. It’s a wonderful time to celebrate motherhood and new babies. Baby showers typically consist of food, games, and opening presents. Consider trying something new and give your guests a craft activity that will be useful for the new baby or contribute to the nursery’s design. It gives your friends and family a chance to present the new baby with something heartfelt, handmade, and sentimental. Guests will be able release their creative sides in a fun and useful way. The simple projects will live on long after the baby word search sheets and toilet paper diapers have been recycled.

With our first, we were so excited at having finally getting pregnant after being told for years that we couldn’t have babies. Our excitement was so huge that we just had to know if we were going to have a boy or a girl. No surprises. Having a baby was enough of a (much welcomed), surprise.
With our second however, things were a little more relaxed. We decided to wait to find out and with that came the purchase of gender neutral baby clothes and other necessities. If you, like me, are waiting to find out if its a boy or a girl, then these gender neutral picks from the Hundred Acre Wood will have you smiling and totally prepared for the arrival of your precious new baby!

There is just something about the holiday season that begs for the watching of The Sound of Music while curled up under a cozy blanket with hot cocoa. It was on last night and it made me excited for the day when my daughter will be old enough to watch along with me, but until then, I made up a little song about a few of her favorite things to be sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. Please imagine Julie Andrews singing instead of me – it will be much better for everyone that way.

If there’s one time that I let things slide with our diet, it’s the holidays. We definitely consume more treats and cookies as a breakfast side are a common occurrence. However.
When my little ones were babies, I just wasn’t into giving them heavily food-coloured and sugar-laden treats, even though I really wanted to let them enjoy something delicious and yummy along with the rest of us. It was around that time that I got into low-carb and sugar-free baking. Aside from the health reasons of not wanting to load up my kids of sugars and white flours, I’m also not a fan of hanging out with toddlers hopped up on sugar!
This week in particular brings the beginning of our Christmas break from school and we’ll be taking Wyndham and Abby to see Disney’s Frozen! I made these cupcakes as a precursor to the big day and they were a hit!
