Alright, ladies. Here is my new favorite treat… Fried Apple Ice Cream Topping. I’m not lying when I say it takes 5 minutes to make. You can make it just for you, or the whole fam-damily. Even better, I bet you already have all the ingredients on hand. No bundling everyone up for a trip […]

One of our favorite things to do Sunday evening is have ‘Family Movie Night’ and watch a clean family movie. It’s a fun little tradition, that comes complete with popcorn and those cheap, chewy, box-mix brownies. Yum! In the past, we’ve watched plenty of total duds. Movies that literally stunk, or movies we THOUGHT we […]

I had so many fun ideas bouncing around in my head about what to post for an exciting Christmas Family Home Evening.

I am so excited to post the primary talks for November. This is one of my favorite times of the year. There is so much emphasis on gratitude and thanksgiving. All of the positivity fills my life with hope and joy! The spirit of gratitude is more satisfying than a Thanksgiving feast. Don’t you agree? […]

The costume catalogs are taking over my daily mail (I don’t mind), and pumpkin porch decorations are popping up all over the neighborhood. If you’ve read my blog, Darling Darleen, you’d know I like to put a personal twist on my kids’ Halloween with homemade costumes. With four kids, I do my best to get creative and make their costumes thrifty and adorably “home” made. But being honest too, they are getting older and do have an opinion in their costumes, what it is and how it looks (boo-hoo, no more family-themed homemade Halloween costumes).
It seems that every woman has something that tugs on their heart strings, and can instantly bring them to tears. For me, it’s sad children. I just want to hug and love them all! I can’t stand knowing that there are many, many children who go through their life being treated so unkindly, whether at […]
