Christmas Cards

Every year, I promise that I am going to start doing stuff early for Christmas so that I am not stressing at the last minute. I was determined to have all of my shopping done by the beginning of December and my cards shipped early. Well today is the 15th and I still have a list of things to get done but I am really not going to stress this year. Really, I'm not :) 

I always have the best intentions but have been bad about getting cards sent out so it is a huge step that I am finally sending them out this year! The Christmas cards have already started rolling in and it is helping motivate me as I see how cute they are. I really love getting Christmas cards and hearing from people we haven't seen in awhile and seeing all of the cute pictures of the little ones growing.    

This year I am ordering cards from I want to do a photo card so we can include pictures of B for friends and family who haven't seen him in awhile. There are tons of cute options to choose from, below are some of the ones I am thinking of using. We have gotten lots of cute photo books through Shutterfly that I love so I am excited about getting cards from them. It is super easy to upload pictures to the website and so nice having our pics all in one place to easily choose from to use for gifts! Photo gifts are the best!

So cute how you can do a family shot and show close ups of the kids. 

Love this one for more personal cards for Grandparents etc. since you can put extra pics and a special message inside. 

I pretty much love anything with black and white and a splash of color. Plus who can resist adding an initial or monogram? Not me!

I guess you will just have to wait and see which one I pick. I know, I know, the suspense :)


Melt my Heart

Sorry I have been slacking lately. We have been busy with company and being out of town but I promise to post lots of updates and pictures of our little cutie soon. 

The sweetest thing happened tonight and I just had to share. The Hubs was getting B ready for bed and he brought him out to say good night to me and said to B, say "love you" and he looked at me and said "I yuv yu." It literally melted my heart and all of the tantrums and whining from the day magically disappeared. It is the little things like this that make being a Mom so worthwhile.

It's hard to believe...

that I have a 1.5 year old!! Excuse me while I shed a few tears that my baby is getting so big. Seriously, the time really goes too quickly. It seems like this was just yesterday. 

Isn't he adorable?! It is amazing how much they change in such a short time. 

B is at a really fun but challenging age right now. I think I said that last month too, I see a trend haha. He is really stubborn and I have no idea where he got that from. ;) He is starting to talk a lot and it is funny some of the things that come out of his mouth. I can only imagine when he is older.  

Some of his favorites right now: dog dog, duck, I see a baby, baby, play outside, want to play, no (of course!), aw man and no way

I can't wait to see what he does next and am so excited about the holidays since he will understand more what is going on this year.

Fun Fair

This past weekend our church, FPCO, held its annual Fun Fair. We have never been before and it was amazing. We had so much fun and B really got into the festivities! The fair had a ridiculous amount of fun stuff for the kids from pony rides, bounce houses, train, fire truck, games, you name it - we did it all! Of course, after chasing him around for all of this I think I was more tired than him haha. 

For any of you who haven't been before, this is a must for next fall!


Downtown Orlando Touch-a-Truck

I heard some Mom's at the park talking about this event and was curious, so I went online to find out what it was. Yes, I am nosy but at least I admit it haha. This looks like so much fun for the boy, or girl, in your life who loves trucks of all kinds. I think I might have just found what the Hubs is doing with B this weekend :)

Orlando Touch-a-Truck is an event that allows kids to explore all sorts of trucks, construction vehicles and other cool equipment. There are drivers in all the vehicles that can help with all those questions you never know the answer to about how these things work. They will even let the kids honk the horn!

When: Saturday, November 13 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
Where: 123 East Livingston Street, Orlando
Cost: $5 per person, kids 2 and under FREE

Trick or Treat

Reporting for duty! Isn't he the cutest little Airforce pilot ever?! I saw this costume and just had to get it for B. My Dad was a fighter pilot and I thought it was so cute for B to follow in Grandpa's footsteps. Even if it is just for a day haha.  

We took B trick or treating with friends. It was so cute to see all the kiddos in their costumes and we had such a blast!! We were surprised that he actually got into it. Of course, he has now discovered candy though so we are in trouble.
