Belle and Boo and the Birthday Surprise by Mandy Sutcliffe

Do these illustrations looks a bit familiar? They are by a company that I have posted on a few times Belle and Boo. My little girls have their prints hanging in their rooms, some of their little dresses to wear, and I just recently bought some of their fabric. They recently came out with a […]

Peaceable Kingdom Board Games

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012 in Children Product Reviews, Children's Books

This isn’t a review–don’t do those anymore. My sister and I found this board game at Blickenstaffs (that huge toy store down in Provo) and the girls and I love it so much I had to show you. It’s a “Cooperative Board Game” from Peaceable Kingdom. Meaning you work together as a team to complete […]

Bunk Bed Library

Monday, March 12th, 2012 in Children's Books

I want to see if my sisters remember this just by the pictures: I really love when I remember random childhood memories and re-inact them with my girlies. Makes for the best kind of afternoons. Next up making mud pies in the backyard, putting on a musical and playing Barbies for hours.

The Happy Day, by Ruth Krauss

Friday, January 27th, 2012 in Children's Books

Anyone have The Happy Day, by Ruth Krauss in their home? It is a 1950 Caldecott Honor Book so it might be more well known than I think. Abby came home a couple of weeks ago really sad that a little girl had moved out of her class. I showed her this book that I […]

Short & Sweet

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Children's Books

There are lots of days when I feel like reading short & sweet stories to the girls. At our latest Barnes & Noble outing while we were in St. George, the girls found these gems. Squish Rabbit, by Katherine Battersby¬†     Squish Rabbit, by Katherine Battersby is about a sweet little rabbit that feels […]

Better Late than Never?

Saturday, October 29th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Children's Books

I wanted to post about these two Halloween things a while ago. But in the past two weeks I have just been…WOW. I put too much on my plate, and even though it is all fun…it’s just too much. I tend to have to learn lessons the hard way, and my poor husband & family […]

Fall Is Not Easy by Marty Kelley

Sunday, October 16th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Children's Books

Fall Is Not Easy, by Marty Kelley is a fall book we love. It makes us giggle — the tree just cannot get the hang of things! It feels good during the spring, summer and winter, but FALL?! Fall is just throwing the tree for a loop: I feel like the tree right now. I […]

If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dussen

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011 in Books/Reading, Children's Books

If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dussen is awesome. Another author that can write like he has the imagination of a kid! In my opinion, if you don’t have that imagination, you have no business writing or illustrating children’s picture books. If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dussen follows the imagination […]

Preschool with Mrs. Mom

I put Abby into afternoon Kindergarten for a reason. Shae takes her longest nap in the afternoon, exactly during Abby’s school time, so now Poki (Cameron) and I can have the afternoon all to ourselves!! I get them both ready for school at the same time and they both pack up their backpacks. I put […]
