found this amazing recipe for fun holiday pretzel treats. Adorable
and delicious - with three simple ingredients. Kisses, round
pretzels and m&m's. I'm so excited to try it with the kids.

It's a rainy, homemade play doh kind of day.
Homemade Play Doh:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbls. oil
2 cups of water
food coloring of choice
Combine ingredients in a saucepan and mix over medium heat. Stir
constantly - it takes a bit - until the dough leaves the side of
the pan. Let it cool completely and then knead it out to get rid of
the bubbles. Store it in plastic bags. Use cookie cutters and
rolling pins and have fun!
We grabbed a bunch of gords and squashes when we went to the
pumpkin patch yesterday. I love using them as fall decorations that
can double as a sidedish between Halloween and Thanksgiving. These
cute butternut squashes looked like a little family of ghosts, so I
gave them fun google eyes with a black sharpie pen.
I've actually become quite attached to
the little guys as they look down on us from the fireplace mantle.
I just don't know that I'll be able to throw them in the oven.
So, are you wondering what to do with all the pool noodles
leftover from summer water play? Why, make Marble Launchers, of

touches on their own raceway.
Here's what you need:
Pool noodle (in any color!)
Toothpicks and Skewers
Crayons or Markers
A while back, I was looking for some things to add to the extra wall space that was created when Alex moved from his crib to his big boy bed. I saw these really cool robot wall clings (I'm kind of obsessed with robots these days), but they were too expensive so I decided to make my own. I found some really cute robot png files I downloaded from Designer Digitals and then printed them off on Post-it picture paper. We had used this paper to make signs to stick on the wall for Mia's birthday party and had some left over. It's awesome because it sticks well, but it's re-positionable and doesn't peel the paint off! Instant, cheap wall decals! We gave these to Alex for Christmas and he LOVES them.
They were such a hit, in fact, that my daughter insisted on having some of her own.
