    Our Toddler-Friendly Winter Bucket List

    I don’t need to remind you that I’m a huge fan of the bucket list. It’s a well-established fact at this point. And the Christmas bucket list? It’s my favorite one of them all. We’ve done a Christmas bucket list every year since we first moved to Austin, so of course this year is no exception. I’m sure you’re dying to know what’s on the list now that we have a toddler and have to take a whole extra person into consideration (last year he wasn’t quite a year old, so he wasn’t nearly as opinionated as he is now)!

    7 Days of DIY Ornaments: Painted Wood Slice Ornaments

    Welcome back, friends! It’s day three of seven straight days of DIY ornament ideas, and today is one my kids loved and I, frankly, felt a little frustrated by – DIY wood slice ornaments! Why did I feel frustrated? Well, because as much as I’d love to be the type of person with beautiful penmanship and a skilled hand when it comes to painting…I’m just not. So, despite my best efforts, a lot of my painting crafts end up looking kind of like a child might have done them. But that’s ok! This is about doing a fun craft with your kids, not about making perfect ornament. So if they…

    Easy Christmas Scavenger Hunt for Kids

    Last year, our family started a new tradition that quickly became a staple of our holiday celebrations – a Christmas scavenger hunt! We always give our kids a themed Christmas advent calendar with little toys and treasures. We love the LEGO ones the most! But, for the longest time we just handed them to the kids unceremoniously on December first. But, last year, I decided to try doing a little Christmas scavenger hunt for them. When they came downstairs the morning of December 1st, they got their first clue. They went on a little hunt around the house and were led to their advent calendars wrapped like gifts! Doing it…
