Family Friendly New Year’s Eve Activities (or any night in)

Every year around this time I have a bunch of moms ask me…

We started this tradition last year. It is the easiest tradition to add into your celebrations.

I mean I love any type of handprint art and this is something we can add on to year after year.

I found this burlap tree skirt on Amazon (linked) but you can really use a solid one you already have, or pick one that fits your colors. Continue reading “Holiday Handprints – Add This To Your Tree The Year”

I can’t tell you why I love Halloween as much as I do. I know it has something that has grown as I’ve gotten older.
