Party time

Last week a couple of kids in our Toddler Time group celebrated their second birthday.  Their mommies were so nice and brought cake, cookies, and a whole bunch of birthday fun to our group.

You know what?  Even though it's super exhausting to be a mommy, one of the perks is that I get to see the world through a set of fresh, new eyes.  Through Baby Chuck's eyes, everything is new and amazing.  Take a look at the birthday hat and bubbles, for example.  Baby Chuck just loved them both.

Crapty DIY 2013 New Year's Glasses

Every year I keep meaning to get a pair of 20-whatever glasses, but I always forget.  This year, I combined my desire for glasses and crapting by making two pairs of 2013 glasses.  Hubby and I'll be wearing these as we ring in the new year.  (I tried making a tiny pair for Baby Chuck, but he ripped up my initial models.  Maybe next year?)

If you'd like to make your own pair of glasses, you can use the printable below.  I think this would be a fun activity for a party or crafty kids.  I cut the pieces out, traced them onto cereal boxes, cut the shapes out, decorated them, and then taped the pieces together.

And because Baby Chuck went to sleep early tonight, hubby and I had a bit of fun shooting some photos with the glasses.

Let me know if you try making these for yourself. :) I'd love to see photos.
Happy New Year!  See you in 2013.

Happy Thanksgiving

A couple of days ago hubby and I finally opened up our Thankfulness Jar.  The slips of paper point out that we were thankful for three things in life:

(1)  Friends and family
(2)  Sleep
(3)  Heat and food


I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, good food, and long turkey-induced naps. I'll be stuffing my face and snapping lots of photos to upload next week.  To keep the Thanksgiving spirit rolling, here are some photos from our Toddler Time Thanksgiving party.  Once again the teachers were super sweet and threw a great bash for the kids.

 Happy Thanksgiving!

Hungry Caterpillar party prep: The invite

In one more month Baby Chuck will be turning one. We're celebrating with a Hungry Caterpillar themed birthday party.  I'm super excited because hubby's aunt and I are going to make a lot of things by hand.  I'm not sure how everything will turn out... but  I know we'll learn a lot in the process. 

(Note:  Unfortunately, I can no longer send out the powerpoint slide that I used.  My computer died awhile back and this was one of the files that I lost. )

Note:  I'm a copycat.  I found these images and phrases on the internet and pasted them onto a ppt slide.  :)
