When Life Gives You Lemons…. #WhatsCooking

Spring is here! I think. They tell me that Easter is this weekend.  The stores are filled with tulips and daffodils...though my garden is showing no signs of life.  Quite frankly it's still frozen solid, with a four foot layer of snow atop it.  I think mother nature has here clock all messed up.  Christmas was green, and mild...spring like really.  Easter...well, our Easter will once again be white. But that's ok. Becuase when life … [Read more...]

Easter Gift Idea: Treehouse Ultimate Collection Cube from @kaboomkids

Easter is upon us, and aside from Christmas, it is my favorite holiday.  Once again we get to invite a magical character into our home, and our kids get to feel that excitement that goes along with waiting for something special to happen. Our Easter fun includes the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, where the Easter Bunny hides little plastic eggs filled with fun treats (some sweet, some not so sweet) around our home, and each of our boys get a … [Read more...]

Make Easter Special with Kinder

Kinder is a huge part of my children's lives.  A Kinder Egg comes out on a rainy day... when there isn't much else to do.  Or as a way to celebrate a special moment or accomplishment.  When my children are older, they'll see a Kinder Egg in store and smile...memories.  That's what we, as parents strive for isn't it?  We want our children to remember all those special little moments that happened throughout their childhood. Easter is coming up … [Read more...]

Our Favourite Store – Chapters Indigo

It really is no secret. Every time our family heads off to the big city (Halifax) I make sure that we spend some time in Chapters.  Our closest store is an hour away, so it really is a special treat when we get to shop there.  It is so much more than a book store!  Though don't be fooled, you'll find the just about any book you're looking for in there amongst the shelves and tables full of beautiful books...and you'll likely find a few you … [Read more...]

5 Sugar Free Easter Gift Ideas

When I was a little girl Easter was a very exciting time.  It was a time for Family, big Turkey dinner, and a basket full of chocolate. The Easter that I remember the most happened when my sister and I were really little.  I have no idea how old we were, I may have been 5 or 6.  We shared a room in the small apartment that my mother rented, and on Easter Sunday we woke up to an Easter Basket, a new Sunday dress and a big, floppy sun hat.  I'm … [Read more...]

Avoid The Sugar Rush This Easter

Or, at least mildly try to defer it into some creative fun. This Easter why not think out of the box and instead of filling all of those eggs with chocolatey treats, try some PlayDoh instead!  If you haven't done your shopping yet (Only 2 days left!!) these are a great filler for those over sized baskets!  Now, I'm not saying omit the chocolate all together, no egg hunt is complete without a chocolatey treat at the end.  But instead off all … [Read more...]

Easter Fun with Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Some of you may have read my post about planning a Pirate Easter.  Yes, it is a far cry from the original, but I think it's going to be a blast.  Easter for kids is all about chocolate, spring/summer toys and, well...more chocolate.  For me it is about making memories and getting a few great pictures to add to the scrapbook. If you have any little Jake and the Neverland Pirate fans, here is some fun activities that you can do with your kids on … [Read more...]

Hallmark for Easter

So I don't know if you've noticed but on my sidebar there is a long purple button, showing you that I'm a member of the Press Pause Panel.  I might be slightly excited about this.  For one, I love celebrating.  Weather it be a birthday party of a homecoming, or just celebrating the day because we have it.  And as you already know, Hallmark has something for every occasion. Well Easter is When???  This weekend!!  Oh wow, I'm not ready!! I'd … [Read more...]

What are you doing for Easter?

So, Easter weekend is upon us, and I am so excited. Ben is almost 4 and it's such a great age for holidays like this! Tomorrow (my day off) we plan to spend the morning at my BFF's house, so he can play with her kids. I'm sure he'll have a blast! (and it will hopefully make up at least one of his broken hearts from yesterday) Later in the day, I plan to decorate some easter eggs with him. Now, he doesn't have a lot of experience in the field of … [Read more...]
