My littlest daughter, Portia recently finished her first year of preschool! As Class Mom, I wanted to organize a very special gift for her amazing, loving, patient, magical teachers who helped her learn and grow so much this year. It isn’t easy handling a room full of two-year-olds!
Last week, I shared a fun DIY Personalized Tic Tac Toe Game and it gave me a burst of creative inspiration to create more personalized games for our family. My kiddos loved seeing their faces on game pieces, so I thought that I should do the same on another one of our family favorites, Checkers.

The cold, hard truth is this: all teenagers lie. They lie about who they’re dating, where they’re really going on a Saturday night, and whether or not they’re drinking your vodka and replacing it with water. But why?

In the event of a rainy Independence Day, these All-American movies are sure to be loved by kids and parents alike.
