Superbowl or Football Party Entry

We had a little shin-dig for the Superbowl. It was a blast with TONS of food, good friends and oh yea, some football watching too. I always try to be really festive when we have a party and I wanted to spruce up our entry way. So I grabbed my cricut, some wood from the garage and had some fun....
What do you think?

Snow Much Fun

January has hit Salt Lake City with a vengeance. We have gotten snow, snow and more snow. It has blanketed everything in beautiful, magical white. It also creates a crazy, chaos trying to get boots, hats, gloves, and coats together to get out the door in addition to the regular chaos. Ahhh winter.

From Our House to Yours....

Santa Baby 2016

We had yet another wonderful experience getting our Santa Pictures done. We used FotoFly Santa and they blew us away with the amazing pics they got. IT took 20 minutes and the pictures were So amazing for the price... miles above a "mall" Santa. Even though Big A realized this wasn't the "real" Santa he was fine getting his picture taken with a "Helper".

My Little Pilgrims


One more year of the pilgrims...whew! I was so worried that my big boy would not be up for dressing up for a photo shoot this year. I had actually kind of resigned myself to the idea that I wouldn't get one this year. I tried to bring it up tactfully..."Hey guys we are going to do pilgrim pictures this weekend!" Big A was all "Mooooommmm, That is SO dorky, I can't let anyone see me like that!" "We are going to Gardner Village when they are closed, there wont be ANYONE around." Really Mom? Really?" and he gives me the raised eyebrow that he is working a lot lately. Then he says the golden phrase "I'll do it for $5!" Little a chimes in "I want $5 too!"

I am not proud to admit it but I am NOT above bribing my children. $10 in the piggy banks and I have one more year of AMAZING pics of A and A in full on Pilgrim mode!

Life After the Car Seat... Big A turned 8

Big A is now officially a 8 year old. He is officially out of the booster seat in the car... a big step. As I look over the pictures from this years birthday shoot I can't believe how much he has grown-up over the last year. At the photo shoot he had his own ideas for poses (some pretty awesome). He was kind of shy around the photographer (a first) and the warmed up as we went. Listening to him talk to the photographer about his life and likes again I was so struck by how very grown-up he has gotten.... How did this happen? It makes me tear up a bit (I know weepy mom mode!) whatching the "baby boy, little guy times fade into the past. He is such a bright, funny, kind, playful, thoughtful little guy. I am so blessed to be his Mom, watching him grow!

A thank you to FotoFly photography for once again giving me outstanding birthday shots of A!

Crazy Corn Maze... Be A-MAZED!!!

Halloween is one of my Favorite holidays (okay , okay...it probably is my favorite holiday!). I like to go full out and do lots of fun Halloween things with A and A. I mean Halloween is not embedded with present buying or family functions, no real pressure (like some other red and green holidays).It's all fun and games and I want to make the most of it.

As we started making our spooky plans the first thing both A and A mentioned they wanted to do wa the Crazy Corn Maze again. Last year we took them and weren't sure what to expect...they LOVED it! SO the Crazy Corn maze was back on the list!

We decided to mix it up a bit this year and start a bit later in the evening so it got dark about half-way though the maze. It was perfect! the kids got to be in the depth of the maze and get comfortable while it was still light and then got to enjoy the spookiness of finishing up in the dark...perfect!

The Crazy Corn maze is the perfect size...long enough to make it worth your wild but not so long that the kids (and you) get bored. The price is right the size is perfect and the fall fun is plentiful... what are you waiting for???
