I just love zucchini. They are so versatile easy to incorporate into many dishes. A few times a week, I will slice one really thin and bake up some zucchini chips. They are super yummy and a healthy alternative to potato chips. I have also made zucchini tots by mixing shredded zucchini with egg, cheese and breadcrumbs. My kids however, are not lovers of zucchini or any vegetable for that matter. If I want them to eat vegetables I have to make sure they are presented in creative ways. This Zucchini Bread Recipe uses 2 1/2 cups of shredded zucchini but my kids don't notice it because it works so well with this bread recipe. So whether you love veggies or avoid them, give this moist and delicious zucchini bread a try and then check out our other family friendly recipes.
Some of our favorite Christmas traditions involve ornaments. Since the kids were born I have bought them each a special ornament every year. I write their name and the year on the bottom and one day, when they leave the house and have their own tree to decorate, they will have a nice collection of ornaments to start with. These special ornaments are some of my daughters' favorites. But my favorite ornaments are those that the kids have made. We have boxes worth of homemade Christmas ornaments that represent a different age and stage of my children's lives. These ornaments represent memories made by little hands that are growing way too fast. In the past we have made Glitter Ornaments and shared Ideas for Homemade Ornaments. Today I wanted to share a quick tutorial for Kids Homemade Christmas Ornaments using colored sand.

When I was a kid I loved my Barbie® dolls. I really loved to personalize the dolls and make them my own. This included giving them (bad) haircuts and designing clothes for them. I would raid my mom's fabric stash and cut outfits for my dolls, and not knowing how to sew, attach them with safety pins. Let's just say all my outfits looked great from the front. From the back, not so much. Plus, I was constantly getting poked with safety pins. I cannot believe how far Barbie® has come since I was a kid. Now my kids can design and print clothes for their Barbie® dolls and create outfits with a bit of bling with The Barbie® Fashion Design Maker™ Doll and Barbie® Sparkle Studio™ Doll.
