Getting ready for school. When did they get so big?
Rolling all over the place now. First day and I can’t even manage to take a picture every hour. Oh well.
Paying bills. At least the pen makes it at least a tiny bit fun.

My poor neglected blog. I have lots of posts in mind, just no time to put them together. Here’s a look at how we decorated for our Thanksgiving gathering.
Guests took homemade caramel apples as a favor.
We found out in November that I was pregnant. We hadn’t planned on having a gender reveal party, but I couldn’t resist! We just invited immediate family and requested no gifts.
Here’s the invitation we sent. You can purchase the invitation here.
When the family arrived they got a bow or a mustache, depending on whether they thought it was a boy or girl. I thought I’d give them a chance to make at slightly educated guess and had a list of the old wives tales and what they predicted. Funny enough, based on the ones I did, it was slightly in favor of a boy.
I cut the mustaches from felt and hot glued a pin on the back. The ribbon was just tied and a pin glued on the back.
The food served were the foods I have been craving (plus pizza).
My mom also made cute little baby feet jello jigglers.
I found the molds for the mustache and bow on Amazon.
The straws are from Isakay Boutique on Etsy. If you are looking for party supplies, I definitely recommend her!
I found the lanterns via Pinterest. You can find the tutorial here. They were filled with confetti. When it was time for the big reveal, the boys each pulled a string on a lantern to release the confetti.
The boys were more concerned with the confetti than anything else. Actually, we had told the boys the night before. Here’s how we told them…

Thanks to Catch My Party for featuring my Wizard of Oz party as their party of the day!
Last weekend we had a Halloween Party at our house. It was so much fun! In keeping with the Oz theme, all food and treats I made were witch themed. My mom kept with the Oz theme and made a brain cheese ball and heart jello jigglers. I also included various quotes from the movie in frames that coincided with the food. Favor bags for the kids were made to look like witches brooms. The adults were able to make their own caramel apples. Here are a few pictures.
You can see most of my inspiration for the party on my Halloween board on Pinterest.
