Hi, it’s Carlyn from East Valley Mom Guide, filling in for Wendy today. I just wanted to share a lunch I made for my boys inspired by Disney’s Frozen. The movie just came out on DVD and Blu-ray, so my boys and I will be watching it until we have the whole thing memorized. I’m […]

Duck Dynasty Birthday Party

Duck Dynasty Birthday Party

So, it’s your happy happy happy birthday!  There is only one party for you….a Duck Dynasty Birthday Party.  I love themed parties, but I don’t enjoy the price tag of buying a ton of logo’d items for a 2-3 party.  It’s just not budget friendly.  However, if you are a Duck Dynasty fan there are some […]

Empty Tomb Rolls

Empty Tomb Rolls...teaching kids the true meaning of Easter

I’m always searching for creative ways to teach my children Bible stories.  My kids learn better with hands-on activities while we are talking and then being able to visualize what we are talking about.  I first heard about Empty Tomb Rolls several years ago and I know they are all over the web now, but I’ve got […]

Leprechaun Bait

Leprechauns!  Love ‘em or hate ‘em?  They always show up at our house sometime before we wake up on March 17th.  The leprechauns cause all sorts of mischief at our house.  This year the kids and I decided we would set out some leprechaun bait and try to catch them. Do they come to your […]
