One of our favourite rides at Disney World is the Mad Tea Party. It is a nostalgic ride for me and for Penny, it’s fast and spins. Recipe for major excitement. Have you ever looked close at the teacup designs? I think they are pretty fun and also really easy to recreate.
I am still in full Moana party planning mode over in these parts! Invitations are going out in about a week, my Kakamora are done and I have a plan for some Tamatoa cupcakes.
I wanted to add some girly flowers to the party room to keep things bright and tropical and some super simple tissue paper flowers will fit the bill perfectly.
We are less than a year into being parents of a child with diagnosed severe food allergies, but like most parents who have kids with anaphylaxis, we have known well before diagnosis. Usually that means a strong family history of food allergies or your child has had a severe reaction in the past. We fall into the latter category when we were encouraged to give Ethan peanut butter at 6 to 8 months.
Mother’s Day is this weekend and I am late getting something together for 2 super special ladies in our life. Running late seems to be the theme of my life lately!
I thought a homemade keepsake would be nice to give Nana and Grandma this year and since I am on a big decorative plate kick right now, I decided the kiddos could design their own. This project is fairly simple yet has the potential to be a complete train-wreck if your kids can’t be trusted with a paint pen. My kids are not to be trusted with paint pens.. like ever… so I was watching like a hawk.
Have you ever thought about what you would need if you were required to leave your home in an emergency and not return for several days? Do you have what you need? Do you have the time to pack it all up and leave in time? Do you have a plan? Today is the beginning of Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada. Every year Public Safety Canada spends the first full week of may brining awareness to Canadians about the potential dangers and risks in their area and encourages families to become familiar with those risks, make a plan and get an emergency kit prepared.
Next month our oldest will turn 5. FIVE! That is half way to 10 years old! To celebrate Penny will be hosting her first birthday party with her school friends and she could not be more excited. She has asked for a Moana theme as we are still in full Moana obsession over here. I would say we watch it at least 5 times a week and I may or may not listen to the soundtrack constantly in the car.

What’s more delicious than sitting around a campfire and eating smores?!
Pretty much everything.
Marshmallows and melted chocolate both turn my stomach a little bit, but it is a hallmark of summer and camping. And the kids love it too. Even though we are yet to take our first camping trip this year, our kids have been on a few and they have been to many a campfire.
The month of May is Food Allergy Awareness Month in Canada and the US and May 14 to 20th 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of Food Allergy Awareness Week. FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) and Food Allergy Canada use this month to spread the word on how serious food allergies can be by promoting awareness, acceptance and food safety for the millions of people living with food allergies and anaphylaxis.
People like our son.
If there is one thing I love it’s a fun condiment. I don’t remember when I started making these but they have become a summer favourite for burgers and tacos. Particularly with me and my dad. Making this pretty purple burger topping is simple and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now.
