We are a noisy, messy, happy, wacky family in rural Minnesota. Our family consists of me (Alicia), my wonderful lug of a husband (Daryl) and five kids — Victoria, Annalee, Jack, Alex and our lovely surprise baby Fiona.
I started my website A Magical Childhood in 2001, when my older girls were tiny. At the time, I had a newsletter that I sent out full of magical ideas, crafts, links, musings and such. I sent the Magical Childhood newsletter out for about 8 years but more and more time elapsed between issues as our family grew. In 2009, I replaced the newsletter with a mostly-daily blog (first at LiveJournal, then moved here).
There are no ads on the Magical Childhood website or here on the blog. This has never been about making money for me. I love children and I love people who love children, and this is just a place for me to share the same sorts of things I wrote in my newsletters all those years.
I hope you find something here to make you smile.
