10 on 10: Take a photo every hour for 10 hours on the 10th of the month.
Getting ready for school. When did they get so big?
Still sleeping 😉
Sweet boy. Working on pictures to mail.
Rolling all over the place now. First day and I can’t even manage to take a picture every hour. Oh well.
Call me crazy, but I really don’t mind diaper laundry.
Paying bills. At least the pen makes it at least a tiny bit fun.
Derek’s first karate class. He did AWESOME!

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 topessays.co.uk 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…
