House Party

This weekend I hosted my Glade House Party. I made a trifle dessert, cupcakes and put together fun little goody bags of the stuff they sent. I only ended up having one guest. So we both cracked open a Mikes Hard Pink Lemonade, ate some food and played Playdoh with my boys. Thanks Kiara for coming over and hanging out with us! We had fun and I hope you did too!

If nothing else, it got me to deep clean the house!

The Snowy Day

Today we got our first truly snowy day. Not to bad for being the middle of January already! I could get used to this! Note to self: Buy a Snow blower, shoveling 3 times in one day is not fun. The boys enjoyed the outdoors today, it was snowing but it was a nice temp outside and no wind. Although one seemed to enjoy it more than the other. Little still hasn't mastered walking in his boots. So he will pretty much just sit where ever you put him.

My 2nd shoveling Little came out to join me. He sat in the wagon for most of it, and then moved to the lawn chair in the garage.

For my 3rd shoveling, Big joined me outside. Little was in bed already. Big likes to help shovel and did a pretty good job today. Once we finished he made a few snow angels and then we came inside and warmed up with a cup of home made hot chocolate with marshmallows. Not a bad way to end a day!

Glade House Party

This weekend I get the pleasure of hosting a Glade House Party. I signed up through houseparty.com to try and win a Shutterfly party originally. I didn't win one of those, but tried my luck again and won a host spot for the Glade House Party.

The other day, my party pack came in the mail! I love to get mail, especially when it is a box filled with goodies to give out to my friends!

If you have never visited the site, I suggest you check it out and sign up to host! I adore having parties and gatherings and this just helps to have an excuse for one!

Nap Mat

A while back Little's daycare room asked that we bring in a new nap mat for him. The ones that they supplied to all of the kids, were starting to get very worn. So I hopped on the internet (aka Pinterest) and found a super cute tutorial to make one! You can find the original tutorial here at a blog called Sew like my Mom. Below is the final result. I have to say I was quite pleased with it.
