We celebrated my youngest’s 2nd birthday this weekend. Here are a few highlights.
For my New Year’s Eve Party this year I was looking for a fun party dress and ran across a ton of great finds. Here are some of my fav picks:
Don’t worry mama to be, I didn’t forget about you! Here are some great styles for you and your bump to ring in the new year. Happy 2015!
We are so blessed this year! We get to spend Christmas Eve with our families and children, eating good food and enjoying great company.
Tonight we will pack a care package for our little Elf on the Shelf, Elsa, and send her back to Santa. Our kids will open their special Christmas Eve gift which is always new pj’s, popcorn, hot coco, ice-cream treat and a new Christmas themed movie.
Our little family will snuggle in and watch the movie before bed. After we will place a key for Santa on the door.
We will get out our special cookie plate and cup and set out fresh made cookies and a tall glass of ice-cold milk for Santa and some carrots for his reindeers. Then it is off to bed to dream of sleigh-bells and magic, I ❤ this time of year!
I saw this and thought what an amazing idea, it’s a advent calendar for counting down to Christmas through random acts of kindness. Brilliant!
There was also a downloadable calendar with great ideas! Even though Christmas is almost here I plan to make the most of the days left and follow the calendar for the days that are left.
Check out all the tips and download one for yourself at Coffee Cups and Crayons.
One of my favorite gifts to bring newbie parents in the hospital is Champagne. When our first child was born we brought a bottle with us and had the nurses put it in the fridge. After her birth we celebrated with intimate family and friends. It truly was a special way to welcome our new addition and one of my favorite memories of her birthday.
This is one of the cutest bubblies I have found to bring the parents (especially if they have a girl). It is Barefoot brand and the little foot is just too precious. They also make mini bottles which are great if you don’t want to bring glasses to the hospital so everyone can have their own “baby” bottle.
Here is the gift tag I tie on the bottle. Enjoy 🙂
