October would not be complete without the smell of apple cider, hayrides, and pumpkin spice. Bringing these things, as well as many others, into your home can be an easy and fun way to get into the Fall craze. Try a few of these suggestions or go down the list and do all of them with your kiddos. Chances are you will have just as much fun carving those pumpkins as they will.
'Tis the season for shopping for presents, cooking fancy meals, decorating our homes for the holidays, and celebrating with friends and family. The holidays are a fun and exciting time, but all of that fun can start to stretch the pocketbook. No matter your budget, families can still enjoy meaningful holiday traditions.
The holidays are here! You’ve planned and prepared but the holidays can be a hectic, often chaotic swirl of shopping, entertaining and traveling. Kids may be looking forward to doing absolutely nothing during the holidays. They may be a little burnt out from the structure and regiment of school, tutoring sessions and sports activities. If we aren’t careful, we can overbook the holidays too. It’s easy to get swept up in the shopping, gift-giving, parties and the cousin chaos of extended family. We may even schedule an elaborate holiday vacation to get away from it all.
