A Big Pile Of...

No matter how many video games, movies or toys a kid has, a big pile of leaves can trump them all. When we were little, my great grandmother had a large yard with huge, old maple and oak trees that would produce awesome amounts of leaves. All of the grandchildren used to get together in the fall to rake her yard and then we would jump in the piles and the adults would burn them all in the ditches when we were done. The smell of leaves burning still takes me back to those days.

Little man and his cousin decided to make "the biggest leaf pile ever" and jump in them Sunday. They had a blast. I think we could have skipped going to see Madagascar 2 and had some good, old-fashion fun in the yard all afternoon!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
