I can still remember waking up early on Thanksgiving morning to help my uncle stuff the turkey, and then eating sour cream coffee cake for breakfast while watching the start of the Macy’s Parade. My grandmother would leave a tin of gingerbread boys for us and a note asking us to “dress” them, and my aunt would have richly colored cups of frosting out along with candies and sprinkles for us to spend the morning in decorating bliss.
I have always been absolutely enthralled with fairy gardens. I adore them. Something about them takes me right back to when I was a kid and all the time I spent at my grandparents house. (My grandma has a crazy imagination and fairy gardens are right up her ally.)
We all know that Disneyland is one of the most magical spots to vacation. But even though it’s the “Happiest Place on Earth”, the thought of taking a baby to Disneyland can seem a little daunting. If it’s something you’d love to do, (or if you want to take your older kids and the baby just happens to be coming along – because you know – she’s your baby) don’t let it scare you!
My grandma and mom were NEVER too busy to make time to make a fun (and memorable) mess decorating eggs with us… and it’s something that stands out to me to this day. We didn’t just dip eggs in colored water either. We did the whole thing – we painted, we glued, we taped.
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
