“Easier than storebought” valentines day kids cards

I saw this post, from the awesome Asha @Parenthacks, about how it is not slacking to buy storebought cards for kids class valentines.  And while I totally agree, I had to share this, which was our card from last year.  I submit that this is even EASIER than store bought cards, because nothing is more hellish in our family than getting my kid to sign valentines cards over and over again, but he does love to draw.  … [ KEEP READING ]

Isn’t this a wonderful idea for Valentines day appetizers or lunchbox treats?  I was searching for photos of tomatoes on a totally unrelated topic, and came across this one… which led me back to Eye Candy (which is a very clever food site I’ve linked to before: check out the Chicken Egg Family!).… [ KEEP READING ]
