Writing my Friday favorites this morning with the smell of cinnamon buns and coffee in the air! Is there anything better? Nope! And that's why it's #1 on my favorite list today! And BOTH kids like them and eat them! That virtually never happens!
My number 2 favorite? Yup, I'm going there. Halloween!! Nick had a pre-trick or treat meltdown, but once things got rolling, we had a great time! Our development was FULL of kids and some of the houses were doing "trick or booze" for the parents. So much fun!
Number 3 is holiday pictures!! We are getting the kids' pictures done today and I have had so much fun finding coordinating outfits. The past couple of years we have just used the pictures the kids had done at daycare. But now we are at a small daycare that does not bring a photographer in. So I scheduled photos with a REAL photographer this year and can't wait to see how things turn out!! This is the backdrop we will be using:
Number 4 is Thanksgiving prep! OK, my part of the prep is ordering pies which I did on Monday. But..... I do love Thanksgiving time and all the fun crafts I can do with my kiddos! I have started scanning the Pinterest boards for some great ones. Here's some cute things from last Thanksgiving.
|Oh my gosh he was so little!|
Number 5 is planning our Disney trip!!! We've spent all week researching and planning for our trip in May. I am soooo excited! This will be the kids' first trip to Disney and my second. The first time I went was about 10 years ago with the hubs. We never did Disney as kids, and I really didn't have any interest in going as an adult. But we went, and it was SOO much fun! I cannot wait to see the excitement on my boys faces when we get there! When we go, Nick will be 5 and a half, and Alec will be 2 and a half. I've had a couple people tell me Alec is too young and he "won't remember it." Well, I'm sure he won't, but that doesn't mean he won't enjoy himself while he is there! I also think this is the perfect time to bring Nick. So our plan is to go now, and then go again when Alec is Nick's age. What do you think? Is 2 and a half too young to go to Disney?
