Summer is for s’mores

Summertime is officially here! And summertime calls for s’mores.

I’ve got a lot of hungry mouths to feed this summer and it’s not always idea to make a fire outside. Let’s be honest, it’s hot! 90 degrees and 90% humidity is NOT s’mores weather!

I decided to treat the kids to indoor s’mores this week. They were delicious! Ooey and gooey just like on a campfire!

It’s also berry season around here! A mysterious raspberry bush has been growing in the back yard and no one knows how it got there! I think a bird must have dropped a seed. Who knows! All I know is now we have several red raspberry plants growing! I couldn’t be happier! My children all love raspberries. They could eat them everyday but they’re so expensive. We have black raspberries, those have been around for years. But the red ones are new! I’m delighted to be able to just go in the back and pick some for them! They’re absolutely delicious too!

Happy summer everyone!

Beech-Nut® Naturals™

Snapseed

As parents, we strive to provide our children with the best foods possible. Heathy eating habits start at a young age. That’s why it’s important to establish healthy goals while children are still little.

Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is my go to baby food. Their green lid and honeypot jars are unique and easy to spot! Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is inspired by homemade. Their baby foods are made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home and all ingredients are 100% natural, nothing artificial. Beech-Nut® prides themselves on only using ingredients a baby could pronounce, only ingredients YOU can pronounce. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ also has a line of organic baby foods as well.

Benjamin has always been a little picky with the foods he eats. So, when we started him on solid foods, I went right to Beech-Nut® Naturals™. He enjoys all of the ones he’s tried, but his favorite is the Apple, Cinnamon & Granola. He’d eat more than one jar if I let him!

Fun fact, the Beech-Nut® factory is located in Upstate NY, less than an hour from where I live. I pass it from time to time and always remark on how much I love Beech-Nut®! Knowing where they’re located, and seeing it, makes me feel so much more connected to Beech-Nut®. They feel like a local business, while still being a large operation. I proudly support them and recommend Beech-Nut®.

Beech-Nut® Naturals.™ real food for babies.™

Baby number 4

We are 4 weeks away from baby number 4! I can hardly believe it! These 36 weeks have flown by. And it still feels like there’s so much to do. Baby boy has most everything he needs. I’m still on the hunt for a changing table but I believe it will come when it comes.

Miss Liz got a new table for her bedroom! She loves to have tea parties and play with all her friends. It’s so cute too! It’s from the new Pillowfort Line from Target. It’s great quality, sturdy, and super adorable.

Hope everyone is doing well! God bless.

Snow day!

We finally got some snow here in NY! My children, my husband, and myself love snow! We’re snow people. I think one of the things that really brings my husband and myself together is snow. I love how quiet it gets when it snows. You can almost hear a pin drop outside! I love the way the snow looks on the trees, I love how it looks it on the ground. It’s just so beautiful, and Christmas just isn’t the same without snow.

My children love playing in the snow. They love making snowmen, snow angels, snow forts, having snow ball fights. And I love the joy snow brings my children.

Has it snowed where you live yet? Let me know in the comments! I would love to know the weather where you’re at!

And if you haven’t yet, check out my giveaway post below! Thanks to everyone who has entered so far. I’ll be picking a winner soon!

Blessings to all. ❤️
