I’m very excited that Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away, and while normally I’m not a huge leftover fan, the Thanksgiving leftovers are an exception. My favorite sides from the whole meal are most definitely the stuffing and rolls. I am usually the first one to the fridge to start eating those two the next day, but luckily with these Leftover Thanksgiving tags I won’t have to worry about anyone in my family eating my favorite sides! I’m sharing these Thanksgiving Printables over at Eighteen25.
If you have a big family over for Thanksgiving, these labels and containers will be helpful at sorting out all the leftovers at the end of the night. You can use any type of brown kraft box or even an ice cream container to put your leftovers in and tape on these Thanksgiving Tags with Washi tape, or print them on Avery Sticker labels before the big meal. To make it easier for families taking home multiple containers, grab a basic kraft bag and place the Leftover Printable on the outside of the bag and label which family it belongs to. Grab your printables now to make the end of the night a little bit easier!

There’s a printable for both sizes, just add a cute ribbon or washi tape and you’re sugary Halloween treat is all set!

It’s almost Halloween, can you believe it? We are counting down the days and are excited about going to all the Halloween festivities these next couple of weeks! We have 2 trunk or treats we’re going to back to back next week and my kids will have candy for days! I have a massive sweet tooth, so it will be really tricky to avoid all those treats!
Speaking of treats, last year I shared this Out of Treats Halloween Sign over at Eighteen25 and it worked out perfectly at our house. As soon as all our candy was gone, I switched the sign and nobody knocked on our door when the “Out of Treats” sign was up. It was great! It’s super easy to make and you only need a picture frame and ribbon to complete this look!
Grab the Printable over at Eighteen25 and see how to make this easy and cute Halloween craft!
I know it’s a little crazy to be thinking about Christmas when we haven’t even had Halloween yet, but my husband and I have been talking about what we’re going to get everybody for Christmas. I’m pretty sure my mother in law does her Christmas shopping as soon as school starts, something that I wish I could be better about! We’ve been busy working on our budget for Christmas this year and have been putting money aside at the end of the summer so that we aren’t left stranded this holiday!
Taking my 1 year old into the store has been challenging lately so I’ve resorted to shopping online as much as possible. While trying to figure out what we want to get everybody for Christmas, I came across a site called Uncommon Goods. They have Christmas gifts for everybody and all of their products are cruelty free. None of their products contain leather, feathers or fur and have also featured products that contain recycled components. Another great thing about Uncommon Goods is they have a passion for giving back and created the Better Give Back Program. When you make a purchase through their website, Uncommon Goods donates $1 to a non-profit organization that you choose at checkout.
I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time finding gifts for my family, especially the men. My kids are generally pretty easy, and are helpful in letting us know what they want for Christmas. If you’re struggling with some ideas, I’ve found some great Christmas Gifts for Men and Women you have to check out:
To help put some ease into your Holiday planning, I’ve created this Holiday Shopping List printable to help keep you organized. Whether you’re trying to stick to a budget or need to remember what you’re planning on getting a friend or family member for the holidays, this is the perfect printable for you! There’s also a spot at the end of the sheet so that you can mark off that you’ve bought the gift and if it has been wrapped. I hope these gift ideas and shopping list helps you throughout the busy holiday season!
My 1st grader is a total goofball and knows it. He also loves hearing jokes and tries to make up his own knock knock jokes even if they aren’t very good. Now that he’s able to read, I thought it would be fun to put some Halloween Jokes in his lunches when he goes to school so he can get a bit of a laugh during the day. Now he can try and make his friends laugh in the lunch room too!
All of the answers are on the bottom of the of each cut out and upside down to make it a little trickier for your kiddo to see the answer. I like to print these Halloween Lunch Box Jokes onto cardstock so they don’t get destroyed in their lunch box. Scroll down below to grab your own lunchbox printables for your kids!
Who’s ready for the holidays to commence? The 1st of October means, to me at least, that the beginning of the holidays are finally about to start! I remember thinking last year I was just ready for them to end, but it’s amazing how another year flies by and I’m ready to get back into the holiday spirit!
This month’s wallpaper is a tad bit difference as I’ve added a Halloween Countdown Printable into the mix! You can print it out, frame it and use a chalk paint marker to write the remaining days until Halloween. My kids are so excited to dress up, our second kid can hardly contain his enthusiasm. We purchased Danny’s costume at the beginning of September (at little too early, right?) but we couldn’t pass it up since it was the costume he really wanted and we just wanted to get it out of the way. Our kids are going to be “what they want to be when they grow up” costumes. JD is going to be a baseball player, Danny will be a pilot, and Riley will be Doc McStuffins (a cuter version of a doctor). My husband has had their careers all lined up even before they were born, it is insane but somehow it has managed to work for the first two!! We’ll see how Riley feels in a couple of years.
Hopefully, these wallpapers + printables will get you into the Halloween spirit of things! Enjoy the month of October!
We are getting to my favorite time of year! Cooler weather, fall smells, and the upcoming holidays. While they can be stressful at times, they are still fun and I love sharing these holidays with my kids.
These Halloween Treat Bags are fun to do with kiddos and are great to hand out to friends, your students, or use as party favors. They only take minutes to make and can be filled with any type of small candy.
Start by cutting out all your Treat bags & pieces. Fold along the gray lines, and fold the tops accordingly so that it forms a triangle as pictured.
For the Mummy: Skip to steps 2-4.
For the Witch: add hot glue to the top corns of the face, making sure that the flap is folded over so that it’s not accidentally glued instead. She will look like a bald witch at this point, totally normal. 🙂
Add the witch’s hat with hot glue. Skip to steps 2-4.
For Frankenstein: After folding, add Frankenstein’s pieces to the back of his “face.” Follow steps 2-4 below.
2. Insert the candy into the plastic treat bag, and cut the tops if desired.
3. Staple the candy bag to the back of the folded treat bag printable.
4. For all the printable Treat Bags, except the pumpkin, add tape or a glue gun to seal the candy bag in the back to cover the staple.
For the Pumpkin: Hole punch two holes at the top of the treat bag once the flap has been folded over.
Insert the ribbon into the holes and tie the ends together, and you’re done!
I’ve been loving all the “Dad’s Stache” printables floating around Pinterest, and I thought it would be fun to add a personal touch and add the kids to the jar with a printable. The boys thought it was totally hilarious and loved wearing the “mustaches” on their face. That’s what makes this jar even more fun and adds the perfect touch for Dad’s father’s day gift.
Sign to use as a prop (See instructions for number 1)
1) Snap some pictures of your kids wearing the mustache and holding a blank sign (or some other prop they can hold to make it look like they’re holding the printable), or holding the Printable Mustache Sign. If your kids aren’t holding the sign straight, you can always shoot the picture at an angle. 😉
If you printed out the “large printable,” go down to step 4.
2) Once your picture is printed, cut it down so that it will fit the jar and use a box cutter to cut around their hands like the one pictured so you can slip the printable underneath. Getting the printable to fit will depend on your picture and sizes will vary. I made the border of the small printable sizes a little bit bigger so you can cut it down if you need to. You can either use the printable provided or make your own instead. 🙂
3) Put glue on the back of the printable and carefully slip the paper underneath the kiddos hands.
4) Glue the picture onto the jar and stick some Dad’s favorite candy in and your Father’s Day Gift is all set! Since my jar was pretty big, I bought some candy bars to stick in the jar. This is perfect for Dad’s office, man cave, or his secret “stash” on the top shelf of the pantry. 🙂
We have a couple things to look forward to this summer. First and most importantly, school is almost out! The next big thing on our list is our family vacation to Hawaii, and let me tell ya, we are pretty excited about it. My 3 year old will do the hula dance and it is hilarious, I can’t wait for him to see the real thing! With Hawaii on our minds, I came up with this fun Pineapple Countdown. It’s the perfect way for all of us to see how many days we have left, and a great way to help our 3 year old learn to count (and get his numbers in the correct order).
Everything is easy to put together, the only party I had trouble with was the pineapple tops. I don’t know about your freehand cutting skills but my pineapple tops were garbage. So I made it easier on myself (and for you) with a printable that you can print on green construction paper and you can cut out as many as you need.
Get everything cut out and ready to go. I cut my strips about 1″-1.5″ thick, and cut it horizontally so I had more strips from one piece of paper.
Stick two pieces of tape onto the back of a pineapple top, as pictured above. This doesn’t have to be fancy, since you’ll be taking off the loops as you countdown your days.
Place the pineapple top onto the middle of a green strip of paper, and then form a circle and hold it together with a piece of tape.
Add another “chain” to the green strip by placing the yellow strip of paper through the green strip and holding it together with tape. Then add another yellow strip as pictured above. Your pineapple top may look like it’s going to move all over the place, but I promise once it’s hanging, you can adjust it the way you like and it will stay!
Then add a white strip of paper after the yellow loop and continue the pattern again. It should look like the picture above.
Keep on adding loops until you’ve reached the desired length of your countdown. These are also great for party decorations! I love how these turned out. My husband told me these cracked him up, but I think it got him pretty excited about our upcoming vacation!

I’m a little slow going with staying up to date with holidays, but we are jam packed with baseball in our house! Both our boys are on different teams and our schedule with practice and games keeps us busy almost everyday of the week! Any of you out there trying to juggle life with your kids’ hectic schedules?
If you are struggling to find something for your mom or the grandmas in time for Mother’s Day, here’s a printable that they will love to have around in their homes. I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day and found these beautiful Watercolour Flowers from Fox & Hazel and thought this would go perfectly with a Mother’s Day Printable! Print these beauties out and stick them in a beautiful frame and you’ve got yourself a Mother’s Day gift! I’ve made a few different versions – whether you’re giving this to your own mom or grandma, this is a great reminder of how awesome they really are.
