Spring into Family Fun

After a winter that far overstayed it’s welcome, April has been a welcome month on the calendar. Birds are chirping, tulips are in their full glory, and- cue the angel music- Deanna Rose is open again for the new year! As a mom of little ones, this is perhaps the greatest news of all!

MESSY MONDAYS

MESSY MONDAYS

Have you ever watched a comedy show for a few much-needed laughs, only to find that the humor is dull, inappropriate, dumb, or consisting mostly of potty-humor? Have you ever wished that there was a wholesome, genuinely hilarious show out there that could really make you laugh, and make you think at the same time?

Amazing Fun at Amazing Play

Amazing Fun at Amazing Play

It’s a cold and dreary KC day. Mom is climbing the walls. Dad is climbing the walls. Kids are climbing the walls. Sound familiar? With all of the cold recently, this has been the scene in the Sarver home too many times over the past few weeks. We all needed to get out and our destination for the day was Amazing Play Fun Center.

Brotherly Love

Brotherly Love

Perhaps one of the most pleasant surprises that has come my way since having our third born son is seeing how my oldest two love to dote on him. They clamor around his crib to sing songs at the first peep he makes in the morning, both eagerly wait to take turns feeding him table foods, and I have to referee who gets to hold the baby so that he gets equal lap time between his older brothers.

When Snow Days and Babies Don't Mix

When Snow Days and Babies Don't Mix

Happy snow day to you! If your kids are anything like mine, they woke up with wide eyed wonder the first day we had a light dusting of snow on the ground and their excitement level continued to build as inches of fresh powdery snow accumulated over the next few days. Various blanket forts have been constructed in the living room, Lego villages have been completed in the playroom, and chocolate rings grace the bottoms of our mugs from rounds of hot cocoa sipped by the fire. We have busied ourselves with special indoor activities but it was only a matter of time before the boys were asking to venture outdoors.

Bookshelf 5-minute Makeover

Bookshelf 5-minute Makeover

Spruce up a bookshelf in less than 5 minutes using washi tape! It is really the edges of the shelves that are the most unattractive (and the chipped paint on the top), so I can have a lovely new look to it quickly just by focusing on those spots.
