Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Blessing to you & your family from my children & I this Christmas season!

Chili Soup

It's that time of year that a comforting soup just hits the spot! The other week, my kids asked if I could make some chili soup. I've made chili before which they love, but never in soup form. So I was tickled to have a reason to try out a new recipe! And let me tell ya, it was a hit! This was also a simple recipe to throw together and even better, it freezes well. You can make adjustments to suit your taste. I made ours with a little bit of spice to it as the kids like spicy food. I also topped my bowl with mozzarella cheese, diced red onion and cilantro (I ♥ that stuff!)

Homemade Kinetic Sand

You all have seen that moon sand in the store, right? It's a cool product but it is SO expensive for the small amount you get. Especially when your kiddo is going to spill some of it and it ends up in the trash.

My teens love looking on Pinterest for activities to do with the littles. Sarah saw a recipe to make a homemade version of moon sand using just 2 ingredients. So I told her to go ahead and give it a shot (I was busy nursing the baby so I didn't get to snap any pics as she mixed it). But she said it was super easy and came together in just a matter of minutes.
