Make Your Own Dollar Store Party Back Drop {Fun Crafts with Mom}

It had been a few years since I had been to the facility that we had Sawyer's 3rd Birthday Party at and I wasn't really sure what the room was going to look like. In the past the decor of the pizza place we were using wasn't pretty at all and I really wanted to make sure I had some great photos from this party. I saw some really awesome fabric and photographer backdrops I could get but I really … [Read more...]

Bunny Cake

Halli turned two years old last weekend! I swear each year seems to go by faster and my kids are suddenly a year older. One of my family's birthday traditions is that I make my kid's birthday cakes. I make old school cut up cakes just like I had when I was a kid. Nothing fancy, just yummy cake, and regular delicious frosting. I really look forward to making their cakes. Making their birthday cake … [Read more...]

Pirate Ship Sensory Kit Goody Boxes for Pirate Party

We just had Sawyer's 3rd birthday over this past weekend and it was so much fun! This year's theme was a fun pirate party!

We've been having lots of fun with Sensory Kits lately and I wanted to make them for all the kids under 5 attending the party. I bought the plastic … [Read more...]

Mickey Mouse Party Plates

When I started planning Sawyer's 2nd birthday party I really wanted to find a way to make as much of it myself if I could. Not everything needed to be big elaborate projects and having little ones that I could do in advance were really helpful. One of my favorites were actually the easiest too. Sticking with the black, white, & red theme I was going with I quickly realized that even basic … [Read more...]

March was a crazy month for my family.  My husband started a new job, we sold our house, had a huge move, it was my husbands birthday, and then Halli's first birthday!  I felt so guilty trying to plan her birthday party with all the chaos going on.  I wanted to have a "pinterest worthy" party.  Darn you pinterest!  It can be so inspiring, but also super depressing.  I quickly checked myself back … [Read more...]

Sawyer 1st Birthday mini cake momspotted

I can't believe my baby is one. His actually birthday was on Thursday so I cleared my whole schedule and we went out for the day and the computers went completely away. It landed on a school day so once I dropped Gavin off at school (he hates the bus) I stopped by Dunkin' Donuts and grabbed him a double chocolate donut. It's safe to say he liked it. Here's a video of his first taste of a donut … [Read more...]

I've been thinking a lot about what to get Sawyer for his 1st Birthday. We're still very undecided but I thought I'd share what we have and love and what we are considering getting. These are what we are loving and would buy again: Vtech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker - Sawyer loves this. It's one of his top toys. We have the play part on the floor right now and the walker part separate and he … [Read more...]

Saturday night we celebrated Johnny's 10th birthday with his friends. His actual birthday isn't for a couple of weeks but he really wanted to have his friends over (we normally have his party out of the home). We decided a Halloween party would be lots of fun and hopefully before the cold came so we could have it in our garage. Luckily for us Saturday remained fairly cool (well compared to … [Read more...]
