Halloween fun

We have had so much fun getting ready for Halloween this year, since Ashlyn is totally into it!  She’s too young to carve a pumpkin, but painting one was just as much fun for her (and slightly less mess for me). Before:   During:   The finished project:   We also decorated the house and we have all of our candy ready to hand out.  I was completely inspired by easy pumpkin rice krispies treats for Halloween (mine is the top row, center in the grid below) and while I had to make a few Read more […]

Happy Halloween!

Ashlyn is so excited to about Halloween that she’s been fully dressed in her costume since 8 am!

Strider The No Pedal PREbike

This summer, we went through 3 different tricycles for Ashlyn, trying to find just the right one.  One was given to her as a gift last year and it’s STILL too tall for her (even with those pedal extenders that I think are a huge accident waiting to happen), one had a seat that made her slide back too far, and the last one she still can’t figure out how to pedal.  How I wish I had found Strider The No Pedal PREbike months ago! When I found out that I would be working with Strider, I had this Read more […]
