We came up with a handful of minute or less games where all you need are some household items and, of course, your Goldfish crackers! Not only do these crackers add fun to our family … Read more

This is where Rendezvous Box comes … Read more

By Nicole. To know Sunny is to love Sunny. He is a joy and light in everyone’s life and I want to be sure he always knows that. His energy is high, his ideas are wild, and often it gets him into a mess. I find my patience is short with him at times, but I’m learning more everyday how to embrace the wildness inside him. This year for his birthday I wanted to make him something extra special. I want him to always know how much people love and adore him, which is what inspired this video. I love that he … Read more

Keeping your cool and being a constant source of positive encouragement, while trying not to pull your hair out? Where is our Oscar? We teamed up with Lysol to brainstorm our best potty training tips. Our middle boys are all four so it wasn’t that long ago that we traversed this terrain, and to be honest we still deal with accidents at night on occasion, so we’re for sure not out of the woods! Potty training takes a long time, and sometimes … Read more
This post is brought to you by Valspar® Reserve™ exclusively at Lowe’s, find a store near you here. We’re back with the big reveal of our Modern Mudroom challenge! We wanted to create a space that functioned like a mudroom, but made only with paint. Each child has a “color” and inside that color is their space to hold coats, backpacks, homework, artwork and whatever else they need to grab on their way in or out the door. We painted matching stools for not only seating, but for a little easy shelf space! Check out this film made with Jenner Brown of Lumineux … Read more
