Baptism invites…

We had a very special weekend. And one of the events that made it so special was Cannon’s baptism.

How handsome is this little guy – who doesn’t look so little anymore?!

Hunter is excited about a football tournament this weekend and Bennett is excited for his baptism – a special day he has been waiting and preparing for.

He turned 8 and all of the sudden he looks so much older. Maybe it’s the suit. Or the big boy tie (instead of the zip-up ties he’s used to). Either way, he’s 8 and he’s ready.

Valentines…free printables…

This is usually how school Valentine’s go down at our house. I’m usually thinking about it fairly early – and I think – this is the year that I’m going to walk into Target and buy a box of valentine’s and go on my merry way. And every year, I walk down that aisle and find several that would work great. Only to realize that there’s 24 valentine’s in the box and there’s 27 kids in the class. Very sneaky.

You think I’m going to buy two boxes and be stuck with 19 extras?? Nope. Not going to happen. I keep hoping one year I’m going to walk down and see a box that caters to a classroom of 30. Until then…I’ll be making my own!

Here’s some we’ve done in past years…

Baby Shower Invite…

My niece had her baby shower last weekend and I think her family is not so patiently waiting for this bundle of joy to join the family (first grandchild!). They decided to wait until the hospital to find out if its a boy or girl so a gender neutral shower was a must. Here’s the invite which speaks to my niece’s clean and simple style. It fits her perfectly!

Christmas card 2017…

Merry Christmas from our crazy bunch!

A quick look at some of our previous Christmas cards (here, here, here, here) will tell you that we’re not real traditional. One of these days we’re going to surprise all of our friends by sending a nice family picture with a beautiful picturesque background. This year didn’t happen to be that year.

I thought it would be fun to have a Christmas card with all the Dr. Seuss characters we dressed up as on Halloween. Steve didn’t love that idea. So this was the compromise – Steve and I in our Halloween costumes and the rest of the kids in some cute Christmas jammies. And because I love different design concepts for cards – this year was a banner strung on bakers twine. Yes, we hand strung those and yes, I made the kids help – and we sent out quite a few! We were all happy when they went out in the mail.

It might be my favorite card to date just on the message alone – and I can’t help but smile every time I see Briggs’ picture!
