Santa's House

Christmassy things like Elf on the Shelf! 

Little K wakes up eager to find Elfolo in a new spot. All over the house and sometimes with treats! 
Baby M goes around looking for him too. 

 He's been so much fun this year! Ha!

This past weekend we went to see Santa! We love going to the tree farm to visit Santa's house. 

Baby M wasn't thrilled tho. 

We went on a wagon pulled by horses. 

We roasted marshmallows 


We had a fun afternoon! 



Only a few weeks left! I am almost done my Christmas shopping. I took a few days off to shop! I love shopping and wrapping gifts close to Christmas time. I love the full Christmassy feel of that!

We also love to give back every year. Some years we do more than other years but we make sure that every year we give back. I'm so happy that little K is learning about this at home, school and church.  He's eager to help and happy to make other kids happy. 

At work we sponsored a family. A family with 2 boys. I'm dropping off the gifts at work tomorrow. They will put everyone's gifts together and deliver it to the family.
Every little bit helps. If we all give a little, that makes a lot! We hope to bring them big smiles this Christmas.

Weekend recap snow days

Thursday we had a big snow storm! 

The commute to work was much longer than normal. The roads were so bad! 

Little K loved walking through all the snow. 

So we made him shovel the sidewalk. Ha!

By Friday the roads were clear and the snow was already melting from milder temps. 

We had a fun weekend. My weekend started Friday night with these girls 

We went for dinner and caught up with eachother. It's been a while since we all got together minus the kiddies. 

The rest of the weekend was dedicated to Christmas shopping and fun with little k. 

We went to a outdoor oulet mall. A little chilly for that tho! We shopped a bit. And really enjoyed the Christmassy feel with all the lights and decorated trees! 

We then went to enjoy a Christmas lights show! 

All that shopping and driving got us hungry. 
Yum pizza!!! 

It was a fun day about an hour away from home. We stopped for chocolate treats for the car ride home from Hershey's Factory. Yum!! 

We got home late and we all crashed! 

This morning we were out early to continue the Christmas shopping. First stop breakfast at a nearby restaurant then a park for fun before getting to any stores.

A winter wonderland.

I love waiting last minute to shop for gifts.  So this year is no different. I'll be shopping and wrapping till Christmas Eve! Little K is so much more excited this year. He can't wait for Santas gifts!

Just a little snow for fall

Our first snow fall! Ok it’s not even winter yet, and yesterday was a crazy evening driving home in rush hour as the snow came down. Oh and the freezing temperature making the roads icy and horrible to drive in.


I really shouldn’t complain, I mean, we had a great Fall and from -18 to +9 tomorrow we all can agree that mother nature is a bit confused ha!


I’m soo glad I bought these Sorel boots. Walking from my parking spot to and from work was a piece of cake yesterday evening and this morning.


Oh and my leather gloves with the iphone tips. Perfect.



Yesterday I left work just as the snow began.  I spent 3 hours in the car. Picking up little K from daycare and heading home. We stopped along the way to pick up hot chocolate for me and a grilled cheese for little K. That made sitting in traffic on the hwy a bit better. Little K was asking to go to the bathroom while we were in traffic eek. I told him to hold it. and he did! haha. He was in his pull ups and I was surprised that he held it till we got home! We are in the car a lot! So potty training and car rides… this will be a new challenge for us. If you have any suggestions please leave a comment below!


Yesterday was just the first snow fall and it wasn’t THAT bad. We have worse to come. I’m also sending my prayers to all those in Buffalo that got hit really bad. Stay safe and warm. Lets pray our winter takes it easy this year.  


I’m trying to be as ready for winter as we can be.


Are you winter ready?

***house update. Stucco is done! 

Happy Thursday! Weekend is around the corner!

16 months old

Oh baby K you are 16 months old! You are such a sweet little boy and totally crack me up! You love to be silly and you are very affectionate, always kissing and hugging us. Unless we say no, you will get upset and hit us :/

Everyday you do something new. It's always amazing to me because you pay close attention and copy the things we do without us even knowing! You learned another word last week. We call the pacifier a chucho and you call it tutto. You say about 10 words and lots of babbles that mean something to you! Haha

You have 9 teeth, 7 front teeth and 2 molars and another front tooth on its way!

You still love to eat and you turn and look and point at the sink where I prepare food if you want more. Usually looking for a fruit after dinner or your baby crunchies. You are using a fork more often now but using your hands is much faster.

You are in between sizes right now. Some 12-18 fitting snug and 18-24 way too big.

You love your stride rite shoes and I already have my eye on spring summer ones for you haha!

Your sleep is still great too. Taking 2 naps 1.5-2 hours each and 10- 12 hours a night. Depending if we are home or out late. You only wake for water if I have you in bed early, you will wake before 12am for a sip then sleep straight till 8 or 9am.

You still love to play with my hair. It comforts you.

You love Zoe and get braver and braver with playing with her haha. You are a dancer like your daddy haha you dance as soon as you hear music and love it. You love when I read to you and you always bring me books and point at it so I can read ;)

Today we played in the snow and had soo much fun!

Baby shower and snow!

A snow storm hit us last night and all day today! We didn't think it was that bad until my husband only made it out of the garage and in front of the house before getting stuck. It took 2 hours before he made it back into the garage ha! A friend came over to help dig and push him out. So happy that our second car is a SUV because I had a whole day planned helping my sister for her baby shower tomorrow!

We are excited! Yesterday we decorated cookies and today cupcakes! My sister baked them, I helped decorate and package.

Yum! Don't they look delicious!
