Gluten Free Cookie Decorating

Christmas is the time for cookies. Lots and lots of cookies. Being gluten free doesn’t mean that you can’t have cookies. I have found that hosting my own cookie decorating party is the best way to ensure that my celiac daughter and gluten intolerant son are able to participate in this annual event, plus remain […]

O Christmas Tree

December, December…. frigid month of such great family togetherness, sharing, love, and joy. As Christians, my family celebrates Christmas for the major holiday of this season. While we have never done the Santa thing, we have always had a decorated tree and presents. What I’m writing about today has nothing to do with that; I […]

Unhappy Holidays Happen, Too

This can be such a wonderful time of the year. It is a time for gratitude, joy, family, and friends. Thanksgiving has passed, and now we are in the Advent and the Christmas season. There are decorations, lights, parties, and merriment all around. I truly love this season, but I have also had my fair […]

Gift Of The Month Club

The idea of the Gift of the Month Club all started for me at Christmastime, with two separate thoughts that merged together. First, what do we give our children who do not need MORE STUFF? And second, what can I give a nephew that I rarely see so that he knows we love him and […]

Scrabble Tile Ornaments

Since we live 1500 miles away from family, trekking back home for the holidays is tough. This year, my parents decided to travel to us a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Logan and I wanted to create a homemade gift for them to take back home with them. With Christmas just around the corner, we […]

The Best Gifts

 “There is something about saying, ‘We always do this,’ which helps keep the years together. Time is such an elusive thing that if we keep on meaning to do something interesting, but never do it, year would follow year with no special thoughtfulness being expressed in making gifts, surprises, charming table settings, and familiar, favorite […]

Make Your Own Keepsake Handprint Tree Skirt

I’m super-creative. Kind of. Inside of me is a Martha Stewart just dying to get out. If only I had her budget to buy supplies, a legion of minions to help me accomplish everything, the ability to make time stand still, and if I wasn’t so certain that God has me exactly where He wants […]

Developing New Traditions

While growing up, my family had a bunch of annual traditions regarding the holiday season. Well, let’s just say, my mother did. She would always decorate on December 2 every year while my sister and I were at school. If the day fell on a weekend, she would wait until the following Monday. We ate […]

Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornament

This is a very simple craft project that you can do with your children of almost any age and end up with ornaments for the Christmas tree. If they are able to perform the first step of tying shoes, then they will be able to make this. And if not, maybe this will help them […]

Geek Crafts!

My fellow family members and I are huge geeks. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of Christmas decorations that encompass our family’s passion for science fiction, fantasy, and video games. I decided to try to make something personal for the family: a Christmas Geek Wreath! It cost me only $24 to pick up the […]

The Joy of a Live Tree

Since we have become parents, one of our favorite Christmas traditions is going to cut down our own Christmas tree. I am more keen on getting a live tree with the bulb and planting it around the farm. However, you have to dig the hole before the ground freezes, then cover the hole so nothing […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
