My newsfeed is exploding with first day of school posts. I personally love them. I love seeing the bright smiles and the new shoes and first day of school outfits and the adorable stats.
It never is so honest as it is from the mouth of babes…Honesty from a 3 year old!
I’m standing in my bathroom getting ready to hop into the shower. As always,
Today is Ryan’s First Day of Preschool!
It’s hard to believe this little guy is already old enough to go to preschool! All his life, he has watched his brother go to school,
Halloween is coming and it is a fact that you need this super cute ghost shirt. It’s so cute and you can put it on a shirt, a tote bag, a coffee mug…options are open to your imagination!
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! The other day, I started to realize the things that I say 8,643,710 times a day and started to make a list in my mind.
Wow…it’s been a really long time since I did one of these posts! I got off track and never jumped back on. These are basically about funny things my kids do or silly stuff that goes on in our life and a play on our last name…Spangenberg.
I have to make the boys a birthday banner each year. Why? I don’t know?!? I think they are cute, and fun, and really, really simple decorations that are easy to do and really personal!
Ok so the 12th was his actual birthday but I am behind in posting this because we were having so much fun!
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy. I fell in love with you the minute I saw your lip quiver in the OR and my love has grown a million times and again.
Another super cute (and super inexpensive) project to add some Mickey Mouse fun to your party!
Small metal buckets or bins
Small Doll Rods (1/4” or smaller)
Styrofoam balls in 2 sizes (an assortment package at Dollar tree has enough for one centerpiece)
Embellishments (Pinwheels or star stakes etc.)
Gift zig-zag party packaging
Hot glue/Glue Gun
I purchased everything but the doll rods &
I am so in love with these! I know, I am a total dork but they just make drinking regular old lemonade SO. MUCH. BETTER. I am not sure if it is the cute lids,
Would you like a SUPER EASY way to personalize any party, get together or event? Enter Water Bottle Wrappers! I love these things! They are such a simple way to coordinate your theme into a party!
I made the kids some cute personalized drink bottles for Ryan’s Party. From the Invitation I shared yesterday, you can guess most of everything included some aspect of Mickey Mouse. For these guys I used the Waltograph font to add the kids names to the bottles using vinyl.
Ryan’s 2nd Birthday Party theme is Mickey Mouse! One of his favorite characters! I made these simple Mickey Mouse Birthday Invitations in Photoshop Elements 9.
I printed them at Walgreens! Super cute,
Yep, as the title of this post suggests…moving sucks! Hmm…where to begin?
1. Ryan decided to get hand, foot and mouth disease and be MISERABLE for about 5 days prior to the move.
OK so Ryan is talking up a storm which is great and all. The thing is…he seems to like to replace the “M” sound with a “B” sound…
Milk = Bilk (not to be confused in the car for BOOK which he will then shoot you the look from hell and throw the book across the seat until you realize he meant MILK…true story)
Cows say “Boo!” instead of MOO
Momma = Bobba
Which leads us to Mommy = Bobby.
I mentioned before how much we loved our Water Table! Water is a great sensory tool for kids, especially in the summer! When it got cooler out, I brought our water table inside (empty of course) and then filled it with CRUNCHY hard,
It’s official…I have declared that the state of Arizona tried to kill me. Arizona hates me. After you read this and I tell you how much I LOVE MY IN-LAWS…some of you with in-laws from hell may hate me also.
Today we are boarding a plane (with 2 small children) to fly to Arizona (with 2 small children) to see my parents-in-love, sister/brother-in love and their kids and their kids (with 2 small children).
