Does it feel like Christmas to you? I’ve watched Elf and Christmas Chronicles 1 & 2, but I still don’t feel it. Tree is all aglow, presents wrapped and waiting, but still nothing. If you are feeling like that too, I’m sorry. I blame it on 2020. The year has sucked away my joy. A lot of people it seems haven’t even started Christmas shopping. Granted, gifts do not make the holiday, but it .
It’s almost here, one of my favorite days of the year! Not Thanksgiving because as I stated before, not a huge turkey fan. BLACK FRIDAY!! I love buying presents for the kiddos, nieces, nephews, and basically everyone I know. I can’t help myself. My husband is not so crazy about me dragging him around at 4:30 in the morning just to do some shopping, but he goes along anyhow. So what do your Black .
I know there are those out there who dislike retailers as soon as they see Santa paraphernalia peeking out from behind Halloween décor at stores. I get it. This year, however, I am so ready to just skip ahead to Christmas. Thanksgiving doesn’t even feel necessary to me, but maybe that’s because I’m not a huge turkey fan. I don’t know. I do know though that I am ready for Christmas decorating. There is .
Usually when Halloween is coming up, the kids and I are figuring out their costumes. Then we decide what kind of homemade treat to hand out at school. Not in 2020 though. Normal has pretty much left the building and did not even look back. There shall be no costume parade at school, and as I said before, we are staying home on Halloween. So here we are, figuring what prepackaged goody they would .
October 31st. Quite possibly most kids’ third favorite day of the year right behind December 25th and their birthday. A day filled with fun and excitement; friends, costumes, candy, caramel apples, and other yummy treats. What isn’t there to love? Well, I have a hunch this year may be a bit different. Maybe you won’t be out there walking swiftly to the next door with its porch light all aglow. Perhaps you won’t have .
Let’s face it, this school year is hell. Do we choose virtual, in person, hybrid? No choice is wrong or right, but let me just say, I feel you. We all had to make a choice, and that choice, regardless of what it was, is not easy to handle. So here we all are, trying to keep our cool, maintain our daily lives, and then handling whatever the school year throws our way. It’s .
It would appear as though 2020 came out of nowhere and threw a wrench in our day-to-day lives. For us Michiganders it may have been the longest summer ever, but without our usual summer escapes. Whether your thing is camping, community parks and pools, or city fairs; we all missed something this summer, and felt the difference 2020 has brought. Alone together, right? Maybe you’ve stressed over bills while your work is/ was shut .
A caramel apple bar is a fun and unique theme for any fall party. For kids and adults alike it allows them to personalize an apple that they can then take home as a party favor or eat right away. Keeping these simple things in mind will make sure that it is a delicious treat and not a horrible trick. Choose your apples to compliment your caramel; most prefer a tart apple. Slice and .
With students back in school, fall right around the corner, and Halloween candy and décor stocking the shelves it is time to start thinking about what you will be handing out this year for Halloween. The restrictions for handing out treats at school have become stricter; allergies need to be taken into consideration, how healthy does it need to be, or even if it is required to be store bought. Many of those same .
