Disneyland Holidaze

Disney Small World

Disneyland is one of my favorite places in the world. I realized that on our recent day at “the happiest place on Earth.” Even though I’ve only been four times in the last 17 years, I have wonderful memories of Disneyland. We had such a great time as a family when we went in May, […]

Planning a Holiday Meal on a Budget

Pumpkin Custard

Holiday meals can be expensive. I’ve often wondered why we are tempted to spend more on one meal than we might in a whole week. I’ve heard of some families who have spent as much on a holiday dinner as I spend in a month! May we not get too out of hand this year. […]
