Happy New Year!

Wow! Another holiday season come and gone! This year was a very busy one, but so so much fun. Christmas and New Year’s should be on a 3 day weekend every year! It was so nice to be able to enjoy the craziness of the holiday, but then to also have the down time afterward to truly soak it in. Most years my husband has to go back to work December 26th, so this year really felt like such a gift! I mentioned in this post that Christmas is absolutely my favorite holiday, but that it is such a busy...

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...

Star Wars Party: Episode II | The Decor

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! I’ll start off where every party starts off, the invitations! I ordered an invitation file right off...

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 | HappilyFrazzled.com 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....

Things Are About to Get Crazy…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… It is, it totally is and that’s what makes the crazy So Much Harder to accept. Christmas is truly my favorite holiday. I have always thought that, but since having kids, I can really declare it. I love the whole season of Christmas. In fact I wish that Thanksgiving was the first Thursday in November instead of the 4th, because once those trees go up in the mall, I’m so ready, but everybody knows that it’s not socially acceptable to start celebrating Christmas before… blah blah blah. Bring it on! Thanksgiving is...

Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies

I was looking through my photos from last fall to see if there was anything that I made or did that I might want to share here, and I came across this picture of the Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies that I made for my cousin’s “Harvest Housewarming” party last October. I love these because 1. They are peanut butter, and 2. They have Reese’s Pieces, which are not only delicious, but are also a great color assortment for Fall! You can pretty much add Reese’s Pieces to any dessert to make it festive for Autumn! Sprinkle them on the...

When Your Toddler Needs Glasses

This weekend is the 3 year anniversary of my son getting his glasses! I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. I still remember his first appointment with the ophthalmologist like it was yesterday. Today, his glasses are barely a thought in our daily life, but when we were told that our 1 year old would be prescribed glasses by his second birthday, it consumed me…for months. I decided to write this post to share our experience of having a toddler with glasses, and to let other parents know what to expect if they find themselves in a similar situation. I...

Autumn Tree Craft 1

Autumn Tree Craft

This week’s post is an easy craft project for the little guys. I did this project last fall with my son and nephew. My son was only in pre-school two days a week last year, and I watch my nephew two days as well, so on the days that both boys were home with me, we would often have to find something quiet to work on while the baby took her morning nap. A light craft project at the dining room table usually worked. I am not great at planning projects ahead. It’s usually one of those situations where the...
