Wishing all the amazing dads out there a wonderful Father’s Day!!
This Lego set was an awesome gift from Emily’s Uncle Glenn. It took Emily almost TWO FULL DAYS, but she built it! And she built it all by herself. This is the LEGO Creator Log Cabin 5766 — which is totally awesome. There are instructions for 3 different building projects, and Emily had […]
We had a lovely time sweepin’ the clouds away at Sesame Place for Opening Day! We went on several rides including the carousel (more than once)… …watched the super-fun Neighborhood Street Party Parade! But my favorite moment of the day, was watching Emily climb the HUGE nets!! A BIG thank you to […]
The perfect day starts with a yummy breakfast. Then, it’s time for a morning workout. The gym is sooooooo overrated. What you really want to do is jump in puddles!!! LOTS of smiles!! Once everyone has gotten cleaned up, it’s time to draw on giant sheets of plexiglass. Oh yes! […]
When my father was battling cancer, Emily wanted to make something extra special for him. Something that would fit in his wallet, so it would be easy for him to take it to chemo and radiation treatments. Isn’t she so thoughtful?? When I came across this post at Color Me Katie (I adore her!!), I […]
The internet will never be the same again. A cute blog by a 7 year old. She may or may not be my daughter. *Hint: She totally is.
Wishing you and your lovely family a very Merry Christmas!!! xoxo

Wishing you and your family a fun (and frugal) weekend filled with Autumn treasures!!
Fall is officially here (and it is my FAVORITE season)!! A BIG thank you to Highlights for Children for inviting us to Honesdale, PA for their Illustrator’s Party — we had a lovely time! On a related note, check out the current issue of Highlights High Five magazine (My craft is in there! Woot!!). Wishing […]
A few things that make me smile… 1. Super Daddy and Princess Clara battling the rain to take Emily to the bus stop. No job is too small! 2. Beautiful (and delicious!) cupcakes at Molly’s Cupcakes in NYC — a portion of the proceeds goes to support local schools (awesome). 3. Watching Clara […]
“You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back.” – William D. Tammeus A big thank you to Mr. & Mrs. V for gifting us with tickets to Hershey Park — we […]

My Birthday Manifesto (i.e. 5 Steps to a Perfect Birthday): 1. Ignore Dirty Dishes in the Sink. 2. Ignore Laundry Pile. 3. Turn Off Phone Ringer. 4. Procrastinate Errands. 5. PAINT stuff. Alongside the kiddos. ALL DAY. It. Was. Awesome.
We have had several days of rainy weather here, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying some apple picking! ((with a little help from some apple-shaped sticky notes and sticks from the yard)) It was GREAT fun!! The best part? Re-attaching the apples back to the branches to be picked again (and again)! Mmmmmmm… apple […]
