Earth Day School Treats

Earth Day School Treats

Each time one of my children has a birthday, I try and get creative about what I can bring into the classroom for school treats since our school doesn’t allow homemade goods. My oldest daughter’s birthday lands on Earth Day and last year, we used that as our theme for the entire celebration. I’m working […]

About this time last year I told you about a benefit concert for a very talented couple that was badly injured in a car accident and needed help to be able to go through with wedding plans and begin their life together. I am happy to report that their story is turning into a happily […]

Book-themed Bar Mitzvah

Book theme Bar Mitzvah

We are heading into one of my birthday seasons that happens to fall right between Easter and Mother’s Day. The trouble with a cluster of birthdays is that it makes it really difficult to get each party blogged before moving on to the next one. Because of that, I have several parties from the last […]
