Happy first birthday Ares! We celebrated our little man’s numero uno birthday yesterday with a Cinco de Mayo fiesta! I don’t think you can say you’ve experienced a truly crazy Cinco de Mayo until you have hosted a first birthday at your house for tons of little kids complete with cupcakes, a waterslide, and general… Continue reading Ares’s First Birthday Fiesta!
Over the weekend, we celebrated our oldest turning seven! We asked her how she wanted to celebrate (and we threw out some pretty cool options), and what she wanted most was a sleepover party. We kept it small (three friends, plus Rosie) and hosted rainbow birthday sleepover palooza. (We should have made t shirts)Jury… Continue reading Happy 7th Birthday, Cece!
Today we celebrated four years with our Rosie Posie! (Or Rosalicious as she sometimes refers to herself.) She dressed herself from head to toe today in a new outfit she picked out with a Target gift card. Only when I started uploading these photos did I realize that she somewhat resembles Rosie the Riveter… Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday, Rosie!
Only one more day in December and then it’s on to the new year! Before we send Cece back to school and our tree gets taken down, I’d like to share a bit from our Christmas.We spent the weekend before Christmas celebrating with Joe’s family in St. Cloud. On Christmas Eve, we took the kids… Continue reading Christmas Morning 2017
Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one. After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,… Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
Over the weekend, Cece turned SIX! We celebrated by hosting two parties on Saturday (school friends first at the park and then cousins and family over to our house after). The weather was windy and chilly, but that’s the risk you take throwing an outdoor party in April! Fortunately, all of the kids stayed in very good spirits.… Continue reading Happy 6th Birthday, Cece!
Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways. Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we… Continue reading Easter 2017
With this wintry weather in full effect, I am eagerly anticipating warmer days and upcoming spring celebrations. (Not that wearing a dozen winter items each isn’t a blast, but I’m absolutely longing for the day where the girls and I can slip on flip flops and be out the door in 30 seconds as opposed to the 30… Continue reading Baby Shower Invitations for Girls (and a giveaway with Paperless Post!)
I hope your new year is off to a bangin’ start! (I was in bed by 10 pm on New Year’s Eve and I wouldn’t have it any other way.) I’ve been scheming and dreaming of ways to make this new year great and I’m hoping to record most of it here. As per usual… Continue reading 2016 in Review
Christmas felt pretty darn special this year. It was our first holiday celebrating in our new home (glad Santa was able to figure out that we moved!) and it was also the last Christmas we will be spending as a family of four. Lots of emotions and excitement across the board. Joe also magically… Continue reading Christmas 2016
