Mother's Day gift ideas

Mother's Day is just around the corner.
Mothers are such hard working, nurturing women-
I love that we have a special day to honor all of the mothers in our lives.

I always feel such pressure to get my mom and mother-in-law perfect gifts.

How we cleaned our moldy siding

So it's Spring. Yay!
We're all getting outside, enjoying the beautiful weather.

Along with that comes the need to spiff everything up and get ready for the warmer months.
The siding on our house was one of the first things we tackled.

Spring party decor ideas

A few weeks ago, I was in charge of decorating for a large party for my church.
We call them Ward Parties.
Everyone in the congregation is invited.

Since it involves dinner, all of our budget goes toward providing the meal.

So I had to get creative with decorating and come up with things 
that cost little to no money.

What to do in St. Louis with kids

My kids went back to school yesterday after being out of school for over a week for Spring Break.

rest, so I can tell you about our spring break trip.
