It's Christmas Time!

Christmas starts around here right after Thanksgiving!  Costco got their trees early this year, so we were able to get our Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend...
Then Ella ran into some of her besties at Target, and they were all wearing their "ugly" Christmas sweaters!

Elfie came early this year (Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend) and left the kids Christmas pjs...
He also filled up their good behavior marble jars!

Made a cake, card and party hat for Everett's birthday...

And told them to watch Home Alone...

Ella got to have a fun holiday dinner with friends at Roma Italia...yum!
Then we made treats for Everett to hand out to his friends at school on his birthday!
The chocolates in the corner of the bag are mini Santas!!

And of course the Christmas decorating is in full swing!
And I'm making some new ornaments for the tree...

Everett is FIVE! Superhero Birthday Party

Everett requested a superhero party for his 5th birthday...and that it be "boys only"...no sisters allowed!  So we did the party on his actual birthday while the older kids are still in school...one of the only good things about TK and Kinder being half day!

Sweets table...I made the banner with my Cricut cutter, I found the superheros online and then blew them up, printed them, cut them out and mounted to dowels...
I made the cupcake toppers in Photoshop using the same superheros I found online...


Every superhero needs a cape and mask, right?

Happy birthday to YOU!
And who doesn't need another big bag full of candy right after Halloween? Pinata time!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Welcome Fall!

Since I haven't updated in a while, here are the fall highlights...

We celebrated grandpa's birthday with a little apple crumble...

Passed out a little welcome to fall treat to Ella's class...

Ella had another Indian Princess campout the first weekend of November...

So Everett had another mommy son date night!

And the next day, he ran in the Dino Dash!

I worked in Everett's classroom where we made crowns for his school Thanksgiving feast...

Ella celebrated Cadence's birthday by seeing the Trolls movie...

We spent a morning during Thanksgiving break at Irvine Park with friends...

And Everett had his last soccer game, where he scored TEN goals and received his 3rd MVP award!!
