Eva is my reader. She is always looking for new and exciting books to read and is always excited when a package from Sky Pony Press shows up at our door. It either means books for her or books that she can read to her younger brothers, so either way, she wins. This time the packaged happened to be just for her with two brand new adventures, received from Sky Pony Press at no cost to facilitate this post, that are just as fun and colorful to read as their covers. If you are looking for new books for your older reader (ages 7 - 9) these are two great stores you'll want to check out!

I always thought when I had a daughter I'd be up to my elbows in nail polish, sparkly hair bows and Barbies. I should have known the moment Eva came roaring into this world, loudly letting everyone know that she had arrived, that my girl wasn't going to be the typical princess. She lives to spend her days outside digging for treasure or dinosaur bones. When given the choice between joining dance or a sport, she chose Karate. She gets excited to learn new things and create new inventions of her own. She loves to let her imagination run wild whether she's drawing, painting, or reading a book. Unlike most kids, I never find her in front of the TV. Being her Mom has been one of the greatest adventures of my life! She is fiercely independent, never apologizes for being herself, and stands up for what she believes in. She is a different kind of princess altogether and I love her for it. Though she's easy to love, she's not so easy to shop for! If you have a Tomboy of your own you understand the struggle of gifts like I do. Whether it's birthdays or Christmas I'm always wracking my brain trying to come up with gift ideas for Eva. I've finally put together a list of 5 gifts I know your Tomboy will love - because mine loved every single one!

If Macaroni & Cheese were a food group, my son Elijah would be more than content. I'm convinced he would eat it every day if he could. Baked Macaroni & Cheese will always be one of those classic comfort dishes and one that my family is always excited to devour. It makes for a great meatless meal or (if you are in the carnivorous group like my family) is the perfect side dish for burgers and dogs. We ate ours this week with slices of fried ham. This baked macaroni & cheese recipe gives you the creamy noodles and cheese and is topped with a buttery crust. Yum! I'm about to help myself to a bowl of leftovers!
