Woodland baby shower

What's in the cart?  All the making of a woodland baby shower!  

S'more bar, animal cracker goodie bags, and hot chocolate in baby bottles.  

Rustic woodland center pieces.  

Write a message for baby Miles and string it on the vine.  

Decorate baby blocks and story rocks.  

Draw something on the rock and baby Miles and mom can use it to prompt their story!  

Fun quiz game.  Name the baby animal? 

Who did it game? 

We asked all guests to bring part of a survival kit, hospital, nursing, car, and more! 

Unfortunately we saw one of the worst snow storms blow in while we were setting up and only one guest could make it to the party!  We were snowed in so we did the party virtually.  

People sent us their block designs and well wishes and we completed the activities for them!

Evin is 4!

Catching up on blog posts means that I'm just now getting around to posting Evin's 4th birthday…PS he's almost 6.  But that's real life.  

We started the day out with some birthday pancakes.  Delish!  

Evin's favorite thing right now is Fire, Planes, and Rescue!  

We spent some sunny January days prepping for the party.  

We're lucky to have Wing Over the Rockies an awesome air and space museum which seemed like the perfect setting for our party.  

But of course we took care of the decorations.  

We had crafts like building an airplane, pin the tail on the dusty and more fun! 

My bestie took care of the cupcakes and cake!  

The sister made awesome truffles and then it was party time! 

Part of your party includes getting to ride pedal planes all over the museum!  

Evin wasn't a big fan of listening to us sing to him.  

But he was stoked to blow out his candles!  

And tuckered out!

Halloween 2015

"Mom….I want to be indominus rex and I want my mouth to open and close…."


Work begins on the head.  

Cardboard frame.  

That's enough for phase 1!

Candy apple bar at the pumpkin patch!  

Don't forget to get your festive nails on!  

First layer of paper macho goes on the indominus head.  Then two pieces of duct tape taped together and cut in to the shape of teeth.  

Then we painted the head white and sewed on spikes to a sweat hood and tail.  

Then it was time to make a triceratops side kick.  

Finished project after some gloves with claws and sponge painting with texture. 

Poor triceratops is worn out from being eaten! 

We had a whole dinosaur herd!  Just some spikes on some hoodies and some tails complete the herd!
