Buddy the Elf, Day 2

Today Layne found that Buddy had made his way to the top of OUR tree!!

Edited to add, a few days later our darn kitties were running out from under the tree & knocked a hand & piece of a wing off of my beautiful tree topper. She hit the window sill on the way down! I'm going to have to bust out the glue gun!

Buddy the Elf, Day 1

While I was Black Friday shopping, I saw The Elf On The Shelf! I'd seen pictures of him on Pinterest & thought about getting one but never looked to see where they were sold. SO, I grabbed him up at Target while I was shopping! We read the book & my 4yr old couldn't decide on a name, so we made a list & he picked out the name "Buddy." I'm going to start posting the daily adventures of Buddy here on my blog!

Day 1- Layne found Buddy hanging out on top of one of our Christmas decorations!

Family Update

I posted a few days ago that I'd be writing an update soon, today is the day.

Trying to think of any important things that have happened since earlier this year. In July we moved from a small, cramped 2br basement apartment into a spacious 3br townhouse! It was sad to move from our first home together as a family. We buried a time capsule outside Landan's window, with a letter inside to whom finds it, a few pictures of Landan & a small toy of his. We're loving our new place & the space to grow that it offers along with it!

We decided to not put Layne into preschool this year & wait another year. It's such a scary thing for us, after losing a child. Ugh. I'm still feeling so undecided on it all, but I know it will be GREAT for him! He'd love some little friends to play with.

I've ventured out into photography! Working on gathering the equipment I need (still need lighting) and always shopping for fun props! I'd love to have you as a fan on my page by clicking HERE and you can visit my website here -

Layne just turned 4yrs old on November 1st. It was a bittersweet birthday for us, as it is a birthday that Landan did not reach here on earth. Nonetheless we are thankful to have Layne with us & continue to miss Landan!

I'm hoping to get this blog hopping again with picture posts, tutorials, etc Thanks for sticking around!

I'll leave you with a recent picture of my little prince Layne.

Avengers Themed Birthday Party

So my littlest man turned 4yrs old on November 1st! He is really into super hero's so it was pretty obvious to his dad & I that we'd do an Avengers themed party! My husband works in the bakery at a grocery store, so he was able to get us a huge 7ft Avengers display for us to put up as decoration.

I'll let the pictures do most of the talking below.

Made from pretzels with a block of cheese ontop!
Credit goes to Cute As A Fox, who's post I found on Pinterest.

Made from sugar cookies, green whipped icing (YUM!) and some
black licorice for the hair.

These were our party favors! You've probably seen these cups for about 98 cents
at places like Walmart. So we got one of each character & one with all the characters on it.
My mom found some little Avengers notepads at Target & I got the Avengers markers at
Walmart. Inside the cups were Avengers themed candy we found at The Dollar Tree!

My mom has always bought subs for food at Layne's party, it's just something easy to pick up!
So I decided to stick with the theme & give them some Avengers themed name.

This was Layne's birthday cake! Made by my mom as always. I found the idea on Pinterest,
I would link but it was a user upload to Pinterest.

And to close out the post, my little 4yr old blowing out his candles!

I'm baaaaaack!

Come on, you're so excited to read this! Hehe

So long story short, my friend tells me she has a new blog & wants to get back into blogging. So I'm like - yay, me too!

Anyway, it's late ... or very early in the morning hours right now but I'll be back tomorrow with an update on what we've been up too!

I'm excited, anyone else?
