As the Christmas season settles upon us, there is an almost palpable energy in the air and a magic twinkle in the eyes of children.  The anticipation of Christmas Day is larger than children are tall and seems to radiate from their little beings!  Knowing how to celebrate and help children enjoy the season in an affordable way can often feel overwhelming.

Creative Family Thanksgiving Art Projects

Thanksgiving is upon us and there is nothing better than spending time with your loved ones. Since I spend a lot of time cooking for the most part of the day I like to find activities I can do with the kids in between.

This Thanksgiving, get inspired and create new traditions and memories with a little creativity and a lot of color! Just in time for the holiday, Crayola is encouraging families to spend time together making festive decorations for the home and Thanksgiving table.

Part 2 is finally here - the long overdue update on Anabelle - a preemie story. A heart defect was discovered and monitored, and now it's time for surgery.

The Arrival Of Anabelle – A Preemie In The Making Part 2

A few years ago I shared my experience of giving birth to a preemie. I meant to continue the story with a part 2, but life happened. Well, most of the rest of the story goes like this. Anabelle arrived as perfect as can be, weighing in at a whopping 3lbs 13oz. Other than the need to gain weight, she had to learn to maintain her temperature. She had some trouble with keeping her temperature up, and this kept her in the NICU for 54 days.
