I just thought this was a pretty darn cute photo opp.
Allie saved and saved her money for her Build-A-Bear. We went down to Farmington station one night and got her her much anticipated bear.
Ever heard of Houseparty.com? Well, I got chosen to host a party for Disney's Star Darling's party. They sent us a box of free stuff to use at our party and to keep afterwards.
Here's the party decor
We put stars on the ceiling. So fun.
The party people
This was in mid-November. The weather was good enough to be outside. Crazy right?! Taylor and Tiff came to help with the party and they helped me more than I could have realized! I'm so grateful for their help!
Reading excerpts from one of the 3 books we get to keep. Seriously, check out houseparty.com. Sign up and apply to host!
The kids were suppose to make up a music video to the Star Darling's song and then submit it. I was so surprised at well it turned out! I would definitely suggest this as a birthday party activity for your littles! It was super fun, took a bunch of time and was pretty cheap to pull off. This is them watching themselves. The video is attached to this post. Check it out.
Here's the video:
It's never happened at our place before. Never. Not once. Jason and I were the only ones coming up to my parent's this year so we invited them down to our place instead.
Found out real quick we'd never hosted Thanksgiving or a fancy meal at that at our place before. We do not have a gravy boat. We do not have a set of matching nice glasses.We do not have one single tablecloth that covers the entire table, nor the fancy napkins that go with it. It was a stretch that we had matching silverware.
Snobs be like.. how preposterous!
That right there is one of my favorite pictures of Jason. Cooking the turkey, stuffing and gravy. Did I marry well or what?
The Feast! Everything turned out pretty great!
Some of us participated in some Minute to win it games. Here are a few of the videos.
Also a little diddy from this cute little girl at our Thanksgiving feast with the Wood's side. We did this on the Sunday prior because our beloved Mammy had to go in for surgery on the day before Thanksgiving. No fun but, this video is.
The young men and women in our ward invited the Elder's quorum to go ice skating with them this year. Jason had school so we went in his place. It was perfect. I'd been wanting to go lately. What better way to go than having someone else pay for it? The last time Allie went ice skating she quite literally screamed the majority of the time she was on the ice. I knew she'd get the hang of it this time. Here she is.
Our little tradition. Thankful Tom.
Can't let Thanksgiving get in the way of Christmas. The Ogden light parade with the Wood's. Holy crapomoly it was freezing outside that night! We made it about 30 -35 minutes and were more than happy to leave the cold. Isn't this a darling picture of Diane with the girls?
