  2. Handmade Holiday Happiness

    Handmade Holiday Happiness

    Every year, as soon as my kids are out of school for winter break, we sit down together and start our holiday crafts. Some crafts we keep, but most of the kid's creations are gifts to friends and family. I start this annual tradition by opening my carefully organized, clean, color coded craft cabinet, and select the afternoon's project. Just kidding! What mom has that kind of time of her hands? I'm no Martha Stewart. Not by a long shot. But I really do love my handmade ornaments, Christmas cards, and little presents my children have made for me over the years. Whether the presents were made at school or at home, each craft holds precious memories for me. One glance at my tree and it's obvious, I'm a sentimental old fool, especially since these kids of mine are soon to be college bound. 

    If you're like me, having any sort of craft closet is usually a shelf in the hall closet with a few scraps of fabric, some markers, a dried up glue stick, and a pack of un

  4. In Search of the Perfect Present

    In Search of the Perfect Present

    Holiday gift giving can get pretty tricky when there are only 17 shopping days left until Santa's sleigh swoops into Charleston. Luckily, adult friends and relatives are pretty easy, but buying gifts for the young ones can be frustrating when our time for shopping is limited. Shopping for kids can also be a guessing game - I know there have been a few Christmases in my own house when, just a couple of days before the big day, a kid has suddenly changed their mind about what they REALLY want from Santa. That's when we as parents hide under our beds with the laptop, frantically searching with fingers crossed.

    In this crazy, social media driven world of ours it's easy to forget that the latest trendy toy will probably be easily replaced by next year, a toy even more awesome than the one at the top of the list for this year. What if there was one perfect gift for all the kids on your list? A gift that is guaranteed to help in their emotional and social

  5. The Magic of Maximillian

    The Magic of Maximillian

    On the morning of last Saturday, the day after Black Friday, I awoke to the sound of our built-in attic ladder being pulled down into the hallway. The creaking of the ladder reminded me just how completely exhausted I was; it had been a very busy week for those of us who work retail. All I wanted to do was rest. Alas, it's an annual tradition in our family to decorate the house for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving, and I just couldn't face the unpacking of a dozen red and green rubbermaid tubs. Like any good parent, when I heard footsteps outside of my bedroom door, I pretended to be asleep. I heard the door quietly open, and then close. Silly me thought I was off the hook for a couple of hours. That's when I heard my youngest whisper: "I found Max's box!! Should we open it?"

    Maxmillian Pegasus is our Scout Elf; we call him Max for short. If my kids opened that box, I knew that holiday havoc would be wreaked. I sprang out of bed, yelling, "don't touch anything until
