Sledding, Sixties, and a Blizzard

Presidents Day weekend we finally got a couple inches of snow so I took the kids over to grandma and papa's that Monday to go sledding because they we off of school.

Of course, they loved every minute!!

Then, not even a week later we had a crazy 60 degree day so we took the kids to the park.

Now, I'm currently at home during a blizzard. It's been snowing all day.  School was canceled at 5:30 this morning before it even started snowing.

So, Monday the 15th was sledding, then Sayurday the 20th was playing at the park with no coats, and now today-Wednesday the 24th we have a blizzard.

But it looks like the kids will get in one more sledding day tomorrow! Plus it's a crazy wet snow so maybe we can make a snowman. :o)

Thanks crazy Indiana weather!

Party Prep

Colson's birthday party is tomorrow and I have been crafting away making some decor.

He wanted a Mixel party. 

If you don't know what Mixels are--they are Lego creatures that you can make and mix up to create new creatures.

So for his party I made a few large Mixels out of poster board. 

Here's one of them:

They are not quite finished yet...nothing like cutting it close...but I am really happy with them.

Colson loves them so that's all that matters.

I wanted to do some other Lego things but unfortunately we packed all of our Legos away in the storage unit and we can't find them. :o( Makes me sad but he'll still have a great party. Maybe I'll make the front door look like a giant Lego...

For food we're doing a pasta bar again. I did one for his first birthday and it wa as huge hit so I figured we'd do it again. I'm not going to go as crazy with it this time but it will still be great! I mean, it's pasta, how could you go wrong?? :oP

Colson's School Birthday Celebration

Colson's preschool started their Arctic unit today which also happened to be Colson's birthday celebration at school.

As his special birthday treat I decided to make polar bear and penguin donuts.

I found the idea HERE.

Here they are all finished.

The Penguins--

And the polar bears--

They were a bit time consuming but really easy to make.

Colson absolutely loved them and they were a huge hit at school! :o)

5--A Whole Hand Old!

5 years ago today we welcomed our baby boy into this world and today we celebrate him turning a whole hand old!

You are such a sweet and caring boy and we couldn't be more blessed to have you as our son.

Happiest birthday to you, Colson. We all love you so so much!!
