Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

How to Make Hot Cocoa Reindeer Jar

I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It’s a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we’ve collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! Hopefully you already saw our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we’re excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars!

reindeer jars filled with hot cocoa ingredients

What You’ll Need

  • Jar
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Sugar
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Googly Eyes
  • Red Pom Poms
  • Brown Foam Sheets
  • Glue dots or hot glue
  • Scissors

How to Create Your Reindeer Hot Cocoa

  • Layer the jar with cocoa powder, sugar and top with mini marshmallows and seal jar.
  • Glue two googly eyes, two antlers* and a red pom pom nose on each jar.

*Antlers should be cut out of foam sheets or can be purchased already cut out, as part of a reindeer craft making kit in some craft stores.

If you want to give these hot cocoa reindeer jars as gifts, you can personalize the antler area with each name, using marker or pen!

I love this reindeer hot cocoa jar craft because it’s really easy for the kids to create and fairly inexpensive. One snowman jar should cost somewhere around $2, depending on the cost of the jars. I got mine at a local craft store for $1 each, but if you buy them in bulk, they can be even more inexpensive.

We’d love to hear what you think of this hot cocoa reindeer jar. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more fun craft ideas, including our snowman jar!

Looking for a fun and easy craft idea for the kids? This hot cocoa reindeer jar is perfect! You can use them as table decor or gifts.
