Chandler and AlexanderOctober is a HUGE month for us! All four of our birthdays are in October so its always a great time!


This year Alexander turned ONE! We hosted family and friends for a Safari themed birthday bash. His cake was purchased at Sam’s Club. I added the animal figurines (purchased from Michael’s) We had a hot dog bar, nacho bar, mini spaghetti cups, and lots of sugary treats for the children. The party goers enjoyed having their faces painted as well as creating their own jungle masks. It was a great time!Safari Party

Since we decided on a intimate celebration I created balloon memories for him to wake up to! I simply printed images from birth-now and attached them to ballons!

We especially loved dressing up and had a great night away from the children! 80s bash

We attended Harvest Fest at our church. We came dressed up as Milk & Cookies! It was a hit. I hand crafted each of our costumes, with the exception of the milk mask. It took me in total, 16 hours to complete.

I simply used light brown felt, dark brown felt, black ribbon and pillow stuffing. I’m far from a seamstress, but I figured it out and conquered!

With Christmas right aroud the corner I am excited to create our ugly Christmas sweaters!

Happy Holidays, everyone!
