the chewiest, yummiest chocolate chip cookies

There’s something about chocolate chip cookies that remind me of rainy afternoons. With a glass of milk in hand and a plate of cookies, my 3 brothers and I would watch as the rain drops fell into the blue of the pool while the thunder rolled in the distance.
Back then, our chocolate chip cookies were courtesy of Betty Crocker. These days, they’re made from scratch and usually with the help of one or two little cuties.
I have been working on this recipe for a while – and now this is my ‘go to’ when I […]

DIY sensory bottles

A little while ago I posted about some things I had made up for Chloe to help her wind down from school as she was struggling a little and was over tired. One of the things I made her was a sensory bottle, much like the ‘time out jar’ filled with glitter that I had seen on pinterest. Chloe’s is filled with pretty little beads and gems, sequins and glittler for her to shake and watch everything settle back down while chilling out.When I made Chloe’s I thought I’d make one for Noah as […]

{printable} cookie gift tags

Lately we have been trying to teach our kids about little acts of kindness. I will explain what we’ve been doing more specifically very soon, but for now I thought I’d share these cute little tags that you can add to some home baked cookies for a delightful little act of {cookie} kindness :o} We love to bake and I saw this Norwegian Proverb sometime ago and loved the simplicity and truth of it – Cookies are made of butter & love. So we baked some lovely heart shaped cookies together and packaged them up in […]

{craft} easy clay bunnies

Here is a super fun and easy Easter craft to do this extra long weekend with the kids!!The other day Chloe said to me she wished and wished with all her might that she would find a little bunny pet in the back yard for us to love and take care of. I said to her that that was a lovely wish, but that it was one that probably couldn’t come true right now as we aren’t ready for a pet! I encouraged her to play with her hundreds of soft toy bunnies {my kids […]
