I added this new ballerina theme to my Etsy shop this week. 
It love how pink and girly it is!!!
Right now I've got cupcake toppers and a birthday banner. 
I'm working on getting some decorations and thank you tags added soon. 
I'm also finishing up a princess theme and can't wait to add that!

There are some days... okay most days...  when Jax gets a little wild and isn't always gentle with Lexi. He was so sweet and gentle with her when she was a baby, but as she's gotten older, he's taken full advantage of her non-fragile-ness. BUT there are times when they are both so sweet and cute with each other, and it just melts my heart. A few days ago I found them snuggled under our printer desk, eating a snack. They're pretty darn cute!

I am pretty excited for Halloween, but not really because of actual Halloween. Confusing, much? To me, Halloween isn't a big deal, but it IS the official beginning of the holiday season, and THAT makes me super excited! We rarely have candy in our house, so Halloween is such a battle for me. I want our kids to enjoy the festivities, but I don't want to load them up on candy. I also don't want to hand out candy to neighbor kids, since we don't eat junk food, but I don't want to be the lame house that doesn't have candy. Such a dilemma! I'm thinking about getting a mix of different, fun little toys, glow sticks, Halloween pencils, etc... and letting the kids pick from those. Is that still lame?? I'm just ready for November 1st so I can focus on Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS!!!

I'm so excited for this weekend! We have tons of plans, and although we'll be super busy, it's also going to be a lot of fun! Tonight we are having a pizza dinner out on the street with our neighbors. We are so blessed to live in a neighborhood with lots of little kids! Saturday morning we are having breakfast with my parents, then heading to my nephew's birthday party at the pumpkin patch. I can't wait to see the kids' excitement! Saturday evening we are throwing on our Halloween costumes (well, the kids are...) and heading to our local zoo for ZooBoo. It'll be a busy, fun-filled weekend and I can't wait!
(Late-night neighborhood duck duck goose!)
Have a wonderful day, friends!
