Did you know you can now download your favorite Netflix shows and watch them while going over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house? This is great news for all the families gearing up for a big road trip this weekend. Or heck, just a trip to the mall.
Crafts for Kids
Feeling crafty? Here's some of the great crafts for kids that Mitch and I have done! Maybe you want to try to make our Minecraft Spawn Eggs, Milk Carton Fairy Houses or a big batch of Electric Play Dough?
It just hasn’t felt like Autumn around here with the weather being so warm! I still went shopping for fall candles to freshen up my tablescape, because, dang it, fall will be here someday. Like they say: if you don’t like the weather in St. Louis, just wait a few minutes. It will change. I […]
