Today I'm happy to be sharing about ways that you can get your children excited (yes, excited) about eating healthy foods.  With spring coming this is even easier than you might think!  Come by the Monroe Carrell Children's Hospital Wishing Well blog to read more...

Abby and I absolutely LOVE the Celestial Pullover Pattern from Figgy's. It's a quick and easy sew and looks great!

Do you know what it is to be a bucket filler?  My youngest son taught me what it means. I really love the metaphor!  Come by the blog and learn how to be a bucket filler too!

Don't miss the Simple Sewing giveaway at The Southern Institute!  You'll want this book for your sewing library for sure!  It's a great resource for the beginner and advanced sewer alike.

Today Jennifer Cooper and I have launched a new series called "What I Love About Being a Parent" because we think it's needed. There are enough blogs out there that talk about the hard parts of parenting, and there are enough snarky comments about kids and how spoiled they are these days. We want to shed a light on the great things about parenting.

What do you love about being a parent?

Do your kids love Rainbow Loom?  Who am I kidding? Of course they do!  I bet you're home looks like a rainbow bracelet explosion right now.  Want a way to channel that creativity?  Join me and Abby in The Rainbow Loom Project and send some of those bracelets to children in Africa who are living with HIV.  Can you believe thy've never heard of Rainbow Loom before?  Imagine the smiles on their faces when they put them on their arms for the first time!  Your children will have an outlet and learn a lesson in giving too.  Join us!  Find out more today at The Southern Institute!

We took it outside for Levi's 5th birthday party.  A nature hike was the perfect way to celebrate his fall birthday.  The kids loved it and I think the parents appreciated that we weren't in a germ infested bouncy house place!  Moms and dads participated in the nature hike, looking for natural treasures with their children… we had a wonderful time.
