Somewhere at an awesome birthday party...

So my little man turned 3 last week and he requested an Aquabats themed birthday. Oh how he loves The Aquabats. I didn't find out until yesterday that they now actually have some Aquabats themed birthday party supplies (that would have been nice to know about 2 weeks ago!) but the party, as simple as it was, still turned out great in my opinion. 
 We made each of our boys an Aquabats shirt to wear to the party

 We decided to to donuts instead of cake because The Aquabats actually have a song dedicated to eating donuts and it seemed to fit perfectly. (and who doesn't love donuts?!)

 Little "MC Bat Commanders" 
 Yes, even the littlest got in on the action (can you tell that he is in a hand-me-down bouncer from his female cousin??)
Time to make a wish!! 
We were going to make "tiny burgers" (another tribute to The Aquabats), but alas, we decided to go more simple and have "tiny hot dogs".

It was fun, Rowan had fun -which is what mattered most- it was a good day.

Sometimes Mama just needs some ice cream. Who's with me?

~Gratitude Sunday~

Today for the first time I'm joining Taryn over at Wooly Moss Roots for Gratitude*Sunday
In Taryn's words: :

G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y
"{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}"

* Boys! My boys to be exact. They may be wild, but they are all mine! 

*For finally finding a little rhythm in our lives.

*For celebration! A certain young man of mine turned 3 years old!! (look for a new post on that soon!)

*Quiet moments....they are rare these days, but I cherish the moments I get where I can sit and gather my thoughts (or not think at all! lol) 

*The little bit of winter weather we got this weekend. It wasn't much, but it was about time that it looked like winter around these parts! 

*For my gnomes making the front page of Etsy yesterday! (I didn't notice until this morning that I had actually made the front page....remember, I was too busy partying with a three year old!)

*My family and friends! 

*Coffee! I am very grateful for coffee! lol Oh! and my Sleepy Boba Wrap! I don't know how I would get anything done during the day without those two things. Ha! 

*As always, I am very grateful for having God in my life. He is actually the reason I get through my days. 

Here's to a new week! Have a great one!

3 years old

Tomorrow is this little man's birthday. His third birthday to be exact. I'm writing today because I'm sure I will have no time to write a little post for him tomorrow. Even though his birthday is tomorrow, we will not be celebrating it until this weekend and he has chosen to celebrate his birthday with an Aquabats themed party. (I cannot begin to describe how much he loves those guys!) I have a few ideas for the party and I'm really excited about it. I don't think he'll be disappointed. I love this little man more than anything, but I can safely say that he is also the most wild, daring, brave child I've ever met...and he's all mine! Happy (early) Birthday Rowan. I love you.

New Start.

With this new year brings new inspiration. This year marks 5 years since I started my blog (what?!) and I have been neglecting this space for quite some time now and really want to get back on with it. How I will manage to do this I'm not quite sure (three boys can be handful!), but alas I shall try. I would love to have you follow along with me! Thank you!

Getting Bigger!

Well, almost a month has passed since this little man came into my life and he's getting bigger everyday! It's amazing! (and that happens to be the first picture of him smiling that I've caught!) 
God Bless
