How to Throw a Great New Year’s Eve Party

This year, we are throwing our 11th New Year’s Eve party! I can’t believe we’ve kept it going for this long! Even the year that our son was only 11 days old, and the year that I was 8 months pregnant, we still couldn’t resist having a few friends over to ring in the new year with us! Although it’s been going on for 11 years, this party is definitely not what it used to be. We’re not in our 20’s anymore. At this point in my life I’d (probably) stop one of our friends from streaking down our street...

This post may contain affiliate links. Did everybody get out to see the new Star Wars movie over the weekend?? My husband saw it twice! Once, the night it came out, and then again on Sunday when he took our son to see it for his birthday. This week, our Star Wars love is continuing with Episode II of our Star Wars birthday party, this time it’s all about The Decor! Check out Episode I: The Refreshments, if you missed it last week!

Star Wars Party – Episode I | The Refreshments

Last weekend, we took a break from all the Christmas chaos, traveled to a galaxy not so far away (our backyard), and celebrated my son turning 5, with a Star Wars themed birthday party! It was pretty perfect timing since everybody is pumped over the new movie opening TODAY, and I was pretty pumped because that meant that Star Wars stuff was EVERYWHERE! Star Wars coffee creamer, Star Wars Cheez-its, Star Wars fruit snacks, heck you could even buy Star Wars makeup products from Covergirl (I still don’t understand that endorsement). It definitely makes party planning more fun when you...

How to Make Your Elf on the Shelf Poseable

This post contains affiliate links. Are everyone’s homes riddled with elves? Yup, it’s that time of year, Mr. Elf on the Shelf is back in full force! By this point in the internet age, I am sure that everyone is familiar with the little guy. According to “the rules” he is suppose to fly in from the north pole the day after Thanksgiving (or whenever you remember where you packed him), to watch over our little rugrats, and report back to Santa on who has been naughty and who has been nice. Each morning, the kids get to go on...

25 Books till Christmas | 0

25 Books till Christmas!

Is anybody trying out the 25 books till Christmas tradition this year? I saw it around Facebook and Pinterest the last few years, and since my almost 5 year old is a HUGE book worm and my almost 2 year old is just starting to get into books, I thought this might be a good year to start the tradition in our house. If you are not familiar, 25 books till Christmas, is another idea in the realm of advent. You wrap up 25 Christmas themed books, and then your children open up one book each day until Christmas day....
