Make a Volcano

Last weekend Cupcake “went to work” at Lowe’s for the Build and Grow Workshop.  The project was a science lab, so of course I jumped at the chance to sign her up for it.  It was a simple project, but it came with some experiment cards.  She couldn’t wait to jump into projects when she got home!

Leap into Gaming with #LeapTV

I received free products in order to host the LeapFrog sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ve seen some sneak peeks of what’s been going on around here.  We got a LeapTV!  Have you heard of LeapTV?  It’s a new gaming system designed for kids ages 3-8.  But it’s not just a park yourself in front of the TV for mindless gaming type of gaming system.  It’s a get up and dance, kick, move, and learn kind of game system.  It’s from Leapfrog so you know it’s educational as well as fun.


Cupcake was so excited to get a box in the mail.  We had to set up the new LeapTV right away!  Continue reading

Kitchen After - painted cabinets grey and white #DIYOne thing was still bothering me, though.  That light fixture!  Continue reading
