I know Easter is coming, and I wanted to help you think of kid’s Easter basket ideas. Is there a special little girl in your life? I have one. I simply adore my daughter. She is pure sunshine except when she doesn’t get her way. Then we call her thunder. She is in fact in love with the Disney Princesses.

The Little Mermaid has been my favorite growing up; I can still sing every song.
It is that time of year. You know it is going to happen, and you need to be prepared. What am I talking about? Spring Break and it is around the corner. The kids are coming home for a week, and I need to think of educational things we can do together. I am also on a strict budget, so I needed stay at home vacation ideas for kids. I have a limited amount of time to prepare because I dropped the ball on being ready to work from home and have the kids home. The budget is a factor because we are saving for a new garage, so I need to make sure what I plan counts, so we headed to Walmart to stock up.
