Our Halloween Traditions

Halloween is my husband's favourite holiday, and this year it may be Ashlyn's favourite too!  Between the costumes and her first year of Trick or Treating, she's one excited kid.  This weekend we went to a local pumpkin patch (the same one that we visited last year) for our annual pumpkin hunt!   Ashlyn picked out a perfect little pumpkin that we'll decorate later this week - since she's too little to carve a pumpkin, she's going to paint hers - and I decided on a white pumpkin for a bit of Read more [...]

B is for Baking – recipes to make with your kids

I have enjoyed baking since I was quite young, and I am happy to say that Ashlyn already loves to help me in the kitchen - cracking eggs is her favourite thing ever - and she's always ready to drag her chair over to the counter to give me or her dad a hand.  I try to include her as much as I can when I'm baking or cooking, so I was very happy to receive Sesame Street's B is for Baking to review with her!
