Build Your Blog Conference Wrap Up

I had the great opportunity to go to the Build Your Blog Conference this past weekend thanks to Taste of Home. I had a plan of what I wanted to accomplish. I had questions written down for specific classes and for specific people. Thankfully I was able to get many questions answered and I was exposed to many new ideas. There are many things I learned this weekend. I thought I'd share a few to get an idea of what a conference is like and what to expect. Little America was fabulous and ...

Day 1 post-op morning

Haley had a rough night. They had to wake her up every hour to get her to do things like talk and move. Jeremy stayed here with her. I was with the baby who didn't sleep much better. Jeremy went to my parents home to hopefully try to get some rest. Thankfully Haley has been sleeping very well since coming back from another MRI she had this morning. I would love to see the before MRI and this MRI side by side. In fact we want to get a copy just to show her when she is older. She might be ...

Lessons Learned from Cooking with Kids and My Favorites

  Upon reflecting this year cooking with my Little Chefs here are a few things I have learned: Never have a set time for dinner, you will ALWAYS run late. Measure all ingredients out into separate bowls BEFORE adding to the main bowl. Review, review, review. For each skill taught review and reteach over and over again. When Little Chefs choose the recipes they are more excited to make them and eat them. Explore different flavors and tastes, especially those YOU do not like. Let the ...

Before it was our turn to start they handed out some fun beach balls to keep our Little Chefs busy. I was so happy for that because they were getting anxious to ...
