3 Card Games That Rock

I love card games. Of all the games there are to play with your children, they are some of the best. Oh, let me count the ways. Card games are easily portable, small enough to slip into a purse. They are generally affordable, often about $5. Card games do not usually contain hundreds of little […]

TGIF: Make Pizza Yourself

One of our family’s favorite weekend activities is Pizza Night. We often pick up a couple of pies from Costco’s food court; but usually, making our own at home is the standard mode of operation. For years I struggled to make a pizza that was even halfway decent. Ewww, some have been really awful. But, […]

TGIF: Sandwich Night

‘Twas a full day of library, lunch date with FishPapa and homeschool park day — with a shoe shopping trip thrown in for the kid who left the house with no shoes and we were too far to go home and get them and still be able to do what was planned. I’m beat. Thankfully, […]

TGIF: Be a CopyCat

Growing up my favorite place to eat was a local pizza restaurant that made the best Italian salad. It’s too far and too expensive to go there often, so I’ve found a way to copy it at home. Love it! It goes great with our Friday Pizza Night. A wonderful way to celebrate the weekend. […]

TGIF: 3 Great Family Flicks

One of the things that we love to do as a family is watch a movie. Provided that the kids don’t choose Davy Crockett for the 512th time, FishPapa and I really enjoy cuddling with our little ones, watching a flick together. Some of the sweetest times are listening to our children’s laughter and seeing […]

TGIF: Bake Someone Happy

Got some butter, sugar and flour? Head to the kitchen with the kiddos and bake up some cookies for a fun entrance into the weekend. You might try our Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles. They’re a slightly healthier twist on an old classic.

Ingredients for a Fun Friday Night

Chips and Salsa, anyone? It’s one of our very favorite snacks. FishChick calls it, “Spicy.” As in, “I want some spicy, please.” That’s its name. Love that! Need a recipe? Hop over to Good (& Cheap) Eats for a peak at how we make it ’round these here parts. What a fun way to enter […]

TGIF: Take a Family Field Trip

My parents were both teachers. So, basically that meant that all of life was “educational.” We, my four siblings and I, were their guinea pigs for teaching techniques, projects, and yes, even tests. I think Dad even paid us to take his tests to see that they were effective. We had lots of educational vacations: […]
