20 Sweet Halloween Treats for Children


Halloween is quickly approaching, only nine days to go! In honor of one of my favorite holidays, I’ve created a delicious collection of Halloween sweet treat recipes. If you are in party planning mode, or if you just want to have some fun with your kiddos check out this list. A few of these recipes are easy enough for small children to help out with. I’ll be choosing 3 of my favorites to try with my own kids.

BTW, this is not a healthy recipe list. These treats of full of sugar! But it is that time of year and I do believe in “everything in moderation!”

Do you have a favorite Halloween dessert?

Halloween 2014


A few alterations on Harper’s dress tomorrow & we are ready for Halloween. Most of Rex’s costume was already in his closet. His pants/suspenders were from Zara Kids last year, wife beater from Target (Fruit of the Loom), and shirt was an old Gymboree button down. Both of their reading glasses were from the Dollar Store. We just popped out the lenses. The wigs were from a Halloween shop. Check eBay as well, they may be cheaper there. Rex’s mustache came from a package of mustaches that were also purchased at the dollar store. We stuffed Rex’s wife beater with some stuffing from my sewing supplies. I may sew it into his shirt for Halloween day. Finally, Harper’s dress was from Goodwill. She is kind of an 80’s glam Grandma!

12 Colorful & Vintage Nursery Rugs


Colorful rugs can add serious character to your nursery. One of my favorite places to browse for interesting rugs is eBay. Try searching for “vintage rugs,” “zapotec rugs”, “navajo rugs”, and my absolute favorite “turkish kilim rugs!”

Puffs SoftPack™


The Fall and Winter seasons are also known as the sick seasons for us moms, right? Now that my children are back in school it seems that someone always has the sniffles! Rex has had a cold with a constant runny nose for the past 2 weeks. You know, that kind of cold where your child’s face just looks raw and sore?

To get through the sick season we use Puffs SoftPack™. Puffs tissues have the soft touch that is so necessary for those sore, red noses. The extra softness makes all the difference on their delicate skin.

In addition to that gentle touch of a Puffs tissue, the Puffs SoftPack™ has a new flexible design that holds up better than an ordinary tissue box. It is both easily stored and water-resistant and also travels well! Throw a SoftPack™ into your car glove box, back seat car organizer, children’s backpacks, and your own gym or make-up bag.

Puffs SoftPack™ can also fit into the tight spaces of your home. The flexible design and water-resistant pack allows it to be tucked into the couch cushions, thrown in a nightstand, tucked into your medicine cabinet, and even stored right near the sink!


So, get through the changing seasons with Puffs SoftPack™! The NEW full size flexible package contains Puffs Basic tissues, dermatologist tested to be gentle and designed to fit perfectly into your life so you can always put your best face forward.”

Visit and share how SoftPack fits into your life.
