Logitech Crayon Review (Plus Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by Logitech. Win the new Logitech Crayon! See giveaway details below.


Stumped on what to gift your big kids? Well, this could be the answer. It’s awesome tech. It’s creative. Plus, it’s a great price. It’s the Logitech Crayon. And my whole family is super into it.


Why we like it:

– It uses Apple Pencil technology and but it’s designed for classrooms, and priced accordingly at $69. It works with any 6th generation iPad, and there’s no lag time or delays when you use it.

– It charges super fast — 90 seconds of charging will get you 30 minutes of use. Or you can charge it fully in about an hour. And the full charge lasts up to 7 hours!

More on what we love about it. Plus, come see what my kids have been drawing!

Living With Kids: Jane Cross

I am so excited to introduce you to Jane Cross and her family. Jane, her husband, and her kids, live in Asheville, North Carolina. Jane is educated as a nurse, but recently switched tracks to work with her husband in education, when she saw a need and didn’t see anyone else to fill it. Jane also has an adopted son from Ethiopia and speaks really honestly and openly about the challenges of raising a black son in a white family in the south.

You are going to come out of this home tour smarter because of all of the great things Jane has to say. Welcome, Jane!

My Favorite Nativity Set

Have I told you about our Fontanini Nativity Set. I’m a big Fontanini fan. Have you heard of it? Fontanini figures have been designed and handmade in Italy for 110 years. They’re sophisticated looking and beautifully hand-painted, but they’re made of resin and totally kid-friendly.

They look like they could be fancy, but I don’t mind a bit when little ones play with them — and holy moly little kids are drawn to them. They’re fairly irresistible. (Especially Baby Jesus who begs to be lifted out of his manger and wrapped in their favorite blankie.)

Come read about the interesting history. And tell me about your Nativity set!

A Few Things

Hello, Friends. How are you? How’s December going for you? I was positive this week would feel more laid back at our house, since Scrooge performances ended on Saturday, but it was crazier than expected. I suppose that’s just how December goes. : )

Our weekend plans? Get the Christmas tree. I didn’t make it happen last weekend, and I really want it make to happen today after school. Also, I haven’t actually bought any gifts! I’ve done a ton of research (check out my gift guides), but haven’t actually clicked purchase on anything. Not even pajamas! I’m weirdly behind on things this year. Oh well. Hopefully this weekend I can make some good progress. And Saturday, we’re headed to a friend’s party. It’s the kind of party the guests perform something so Ben Blair and I are brainstorming. Oh. And Betty has two choir concerts. Should be a fun, happy weekend.

How about you? Is your town feeling snowy and festive? Do you have any holiday parties this weekend? If you need some weekend reading, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share:
