I love Halloween and part of that is making my own decorations and costumes. I can’t remember the last time my kids had store bought costumes. It’s such a fun creative outlet for me to challenge myself, and this year is no exception.
All three of my kids have finally settled on costumes. My youngest is going to be a crazy cat lady. My middle son is going to be Gandalf the White (he INSISTS on being the white version). And, my teenager has settled on Medusa (with a lot of shameless prodding from me). (more…)

In celebration of the Sleeping Beauty DVD being released from the Disney vault, we had a princess tea party this weekend! Every princess needs a tea party at least once. My 4 yr old, the current resident princess, helped me plan our party.
