Got him the Chewbacca keychain too :)#specialneedsmom #specialneeds #specialneedskids #targetlife #target #starwars #momlife #momblogger #momblog
  • November has been crazy busy!! December doesn’t look so relaxing either😂😂 🎄🎄🎄🎄 but I love this time of year! Got the house decorated inside and out! Time to dig into the Halloween candy and relax! #momlife #momblogger #momblog #christmastime
  • We found a bunch of these guys in our garden yesterday! Finally our milkweed is bringing all the caterpillars to the yard! Hoping to get a couple in a terrarium so my little entomologist can raise some butterflies! These are Queen- Danaus gilippus caterpillars and are slightly more solid coloring than a monarch but equally beautiful! I love that my kids’ passions have helped me learn new wonderful things about the world 😁#momlife #sahmlife #momblogger #buglife #entomology #kidentomologist #bugscientist #kidscientist
  • If you’ve been following for awhile you’ll know my youngest LOVES bugs! She’s determined to be a big scientist when she grows up! So of course we had to be a spider for Halloween! This was the easiest to DIY. Target had this awesome big spider decoration for $8! The legs bend easily so we just wrapped two legs around her waist and got some spider web leggings with a black shirt! #momlife #sahmlife #halloween #momblogger #diyhalloweencostume #diycostume #familyfun
  • Both girls wanted DIY costumes .... somehow I managed this with clothes we already had and a sharpie! 
Check out my DIY Monster High Clawdeen costume on the right! I’m pretty proud of myself! #momlife #halloween #costume #momblog
  • Doing some garage cleaning and my girls find a craft kit from their birthday... and put it all together with out grown up help! I love to see their creative skills :) #momlife #crafting #craftgirls #momblogger #momblog
