You’re the Bomb Valentine Free Printable

Valentines Day hot cocoa bombs

Hot cocoa bombs are all the rage right now! So naturally for Valentine’s Day this year, Maxwell wanted to share his love of hot cocoa bombs with all of his friends. I created this cute “You’re the Bomb Valentine” free printable you can use for the tags. (See below to download the free printable)

While you can certainly make hot cocoa bombs yourself, this homegirl doesn’t have the time or patience for that. I get mine from my girl Brittany who is local. You can check out her Instagram page to see all of her other confections.

I wrapped each one in cellophane, tied it with some ribbon and added the tag. Super easy and festive!

Holiday blessings

2020 has certainly been a rough year. With so many families struggling, I wanted to use our community to do some good and bless one or two families in need.

Below, read on to learn more about the family you will be helping and their Amazon Wish List. Once you’ve purchased something off the list, it will be removed.

 

Meet The Chittle Family

Holiday Blessings

Janice Chittle is a single mom to three amazing sons, William, Henry and Teddy. William suffers from Mitochondrial Disease and has dealt with an array of medical issues his whole life.  At  11 years old, William has had a total of 25 surgeries. Henry is almost 9, and the “comic relief of the family. Watching his two bothers battle illnesses, he strives to help others as much as possible and has developed a deep love of fundraising to do so. Teddy is the baby of the family and at 2 years old, shares the same gene mutation for the Mitochondrial Disease that Will has.

Will and Teddy require constant and ever changing medical care that includes monthly hospital visits to see specialists at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin which is about 5 hours away from their home in Michigan. As a single mom of three, Janice struggles with finances and constantly trying to clone herself to be able to be in more than one place at a time. This year, has been especially difficult. Due to Covid, Janice lost both of her jobs and the medical bills continue to stack up.

Throughout it all, the family maintains positive and are very grateful for all of the wonderful people in their life.

2 In food/ holidays/ St Patricks Day

Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Pancakes

Lucky St. Patrick's Day Pancakes

This is such a cute idea to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your little ones. These lucky St. Patrick’s Day pancakes are fun, festive and magically delicious!

You will need:

  • Pancake Mix
  • Green food coloring
  • Whipped Cream
  • Marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal

Directions:

1.) Go through a box of Lucky Charms cereal separating the marshmallows from the cereal. This is an easy way to have your kids help you and practice their sorting.

2.) Prepare your pancake mix as you normally do and add a few drops of green food coloring. I added 4 drops but you can add more if you want your pancakes to be a darker green.

3.) Make your pancakes and allow them to slightly cool.

4.) Top with whipped cream and the Lucky Charms marshmallows.

How cute?
