New Jammies: Cold Weather Pajamas

Colder weather is on its way. Here not he west coast we are already experiencing colder nights. The nights have been cold enough I even had to break out the cold weather pajamas. But, we have grown too much over the summer and we need some new ones. So of course I knew where to go. The Boy’s Store. Yes we carry pajamas. We aren’t just everyday clothes you know. We love to stock all sorts of stylish and fun things for boys, that includes pajamas and underwear and socks.

Fall Treats: chocolate Turtle Apple Slices

I love a good fall treat. Candied apples are my FAVORITE. But they can be difficult to perfect, and take a long time to create, and eat. I have been on the lookout for a sweet alternative that didn’t  take as much care to perfect. I stumbled upon this great alternative, turtle apple slices!

The whole apple can be difficult to coat in caramel and chocolate, but the slices are perfect for coating quickly. Bonus, they are easier to eat and won’t be nearly as sugary and calorie filled! It is the perfect little serving of goodness.

This easy to follow recipe (with an awesome video tutorial) is from Mom Loves Baking. Lise at Mom Loves Baking gives excellent how-to videos and written instructions for people like me who just have not been able to perfect the candied apple. It is so easy I am SURE I can do it. I may even let the kids help me.

Now if you will excuse me I am going to go eat some Turtle Apple Slices!

Fall Art Projects: Pumpkin Keepsake

Autumn brings the beginning of the holidays. During the holidays I try to slow down at home. The world gets so busy and so chaotic during holiday time, and a parent can get lost in it all. So I try to sit back and take moments to enjoy the holidays a little. How do I do this? I choose special moments of the day to be with my family. I set aside special meals, movies, activities, or crafts for us to do together for us to soak in as much “together” time as we can in the midst of the busiest seasons.

This month I found these sweet little clay pumpkin keepsake crafts to do with my kids. My kids love a good clay craft, really they love anything that lets them play with things sticky, and messy.  This simple craft was created by Nadia at Teach Me Mommy. I really loved her take on the clay handprint because it not only gave you a handprint but she also found a way to incorporate a photo.

For the full tutorial including amazing photos head on over to Teach Me Mommy now. The great thing about this sweet keepsake is that it can double as fall or Halloween decor and can be brought out every year. So in a few years, you can look back at how young and precious your kids were, and remember that sweet day you worked together to create such a fantastic memory.

I am planning to enjoy this sweet keepsake all autumn long, and I hope you will too!
