Our little six year old requested a mermaid themed birthday party this year. Here’s a look at the details of her special under the sea party:

And of course, my birthday tradition of creating a custom photo memory (available here)
Yesterday, I announced that we are now offering custom wall vinyl in our shop. Here is a video tutorial on how to apply your vinyl wall decal to the toughest surface – textured walls.

We have had such a fun Halloween week. It started with a couple of class parties. Here are the fun treats I made……
These spider treats were inspired by a childhood favorite… 2 Ritz crackers sandwiched with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. I added pretzels for the legs and a dot of frosting for the eyes.
Owl treat bags for the teachers….
An easy way to dress up the standard pumpkin bucket – add a little vinyl name. Plus, the girls know which bucket is theirs – although it is pretty easy to tell – Payton’s has less candy because she’s eaten most of it already
And we ended the festivities with some trick-or-treating as an elephant and Ariel…..
I started a tradition of creating these fun photo memories a few years ago with my girls. After I finished their baby books (I scrapbooked their first year then got burned out of scrapbooking), I was not doing a good job keeping track of their favorite things, special memories, etc. That was until I saw this idea via Pinterest. I started it and it’s become something I can actually keep up with! Each year at their birthday, I make sure to get a good, off-centered photo so I can add their favorites. I display the photo at their birthday party (print one for each of the grandparents) then it goes into a special album. It’s fun to compare their interests at each age and I know this will be something I treasure as they get older.
Here are a few of my girls over the last few years:
If you don’t have time or the computer programs to create these fun photo memories, I will do it for you! Send me your photo, child’s name, age, and memories. I’ll create the file and send it back to you ready to print and share! You can purchase this service here:

We love our teachers! And we love to thank them with goodies throughout the year. For a back to school gift, I put together these apple themed gifts. The cute mini basket are from Hobby Lobby and it is filled with the pocket size apple hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works.
We had such a fun girls/kids weekend while the guys were in Austin for the Longhorns’ game. The kids played and the mommas crafted. This year we decided to make wreaths. Since we’re all about football this time of year, here’s what I came up with for our front door:
It’s homecoming tonight – which means MUMS are in style. I had never heard about this until I experienced Texas football. Here, it’s a homecoming tradition. To show our spirit and support for daddy’s team, the girls are excited to wear their mum to the game tonight. Go Dawgs!
This huge 51,000 square foot park really is fun for all abilities and ages. I took my 3 and 5 year old girls and they had a blast. First, the park is completely fenced in which is helpful with 2 kids running opposite directions. There are tons of sensory play areas. The Play for All Abilities Park is located at 151 North A.W. Grimes Blvd.
Small town with buildings that you can explore
Shaded play scape
Rock Band Pod
Plus swings, spinning chairs, tunnels, and much more!
It was worth the 1 hour drive for us and I’m sure we will visit again when it’s not 100+ outside.
