Been partying....

My baby boy is ((( 7 ))) now! Well, actually he has been 7 for 3weeks, but I am Still in shock! Seriously, how do I have a seven year old!!! The overused saying " they grow up fast" is SO true!!

Anyways, we had Dawson's party last Sat. at Laser Quest downtown. Very cool place...the boys had a great time!

And here is what Avery has been up to.....

This is her new baby and her bed...... notice the rolled up washcloth to act as a bumper.
Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!!

Getting crafty...

Okay, who would have thought you could get good advice from a celebrity...let alone someone like Nicole Richie! As I was reading People I came across an article on Nicole and her new family, she said something like... she wasn't going to let her daughter use electronic toys b/c there is too much natural beauty around that she can learn from.
This is so true yet, I am quick to turn the tv on or let them play video games...anything other than being outside. So, as Crazy as it may seem, Nicole Richie inspired me to get Avery out and let her create something like this.....

We went on a little nature walk and Avery gathered all these leafs and sticks to create her masterpiece : )
And her is a page I did the other day.
Hope everyone has a beautiful week!!

Pizza night!!

I really like the idea of having a "family night". We too often get caught up in everyday life and find ourselves not really spending any quality time with each other.
So, I decided we are going to dedicate one night a week to a "themed family night".
Last night was pizza night....
I gave them some topping options and (not surprisingly) they chose ham and pineapple.
after they made and ate their pizza, they had root beer floats.
Then mommy and daddy made our own pizza..... buffalo chicken.
If anyone has some really cool and unique ideas for themes I would love to hear them!
