Valentine’s Day Toddler Snacks

valentines snacks

My two year old is a super picky eater so I’ll take any excuse to make snack time or lunch time more fun! I think the cute heart shapes and sprinkles distract her from the fact that she’s actually eating. She definitely eats more when I do things like this…. even though she ended up painting the grilled cheese with yogurt. 🙂 I love using the divided plate for her DIY yogurt parfait. I included honey nut Cheerios and dried fruit for her to mix into the yogurt (I also added some sprinkles I had on hand for some extra fun). You can find all the plates and utensils I use at! I’ve listed and linked the specific items/colors below:

Pumpkin Patch Farm

Can it please be October all year long?? This is by far my favorite month of the year… give me all the pumpkin patches, scary movies, and hot coffee! We moved last Thanksgiving, so I had to look up where to visit for fun fall activities this year. I came across the Pumpkin Patch Farm and it did not disappoint! It has the cutest activities for toddlers…. face paintings, tire swings, slides, John Deere peddlers, a hay maze, a petting zoo, and hay rides! We will definitely be going back!

Kitty Cat Birthday Party

This summer Tenley has loved all things “kee kats” a.k.a kitty cats so I knew she had to have a kitty cat birthday party. At first I had not planned on having a party for her since her baby brother was due mid-August and her birthday is mid-September. However, I got really antsy the last few weeks of my pregnancy so party planning actually helped keep my mind off of how miserable/uncomfortable I was feeling. Thank goodness I did everything before Everett got here since I ended up having to have a c-section near the end of August. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to make all of this after he was born! All of the party decor was super easy to make and very affordable. I was able to purchase all my materials from Hobby Lobby which was great since I was shopping with a busy toddler. Most of the decorations consist of yarn and bells to play off of the kitten theme. I wrapped paper mache letters with yarn, added kitty ears and whiskers (pipe cleaners) to the plates to make cat heads, and made yarn balls by wrapping yarn around different sizes of styrofoam balls. I really love how it turned out especially since I had to work with the bright yellow party room at the bouncy house venue. Comment below if you want a tutorial for anything!   xoxo, Carrie

Tenley Turns Two!

How is my baby girl turning two already?! Cue the tears! This girl brings so much love and laughter to our lives. She has such a funny personality and loves to make us laugh everyday. She has been such a good big sister these past 3 weeks and loves to kiss on her baby brother every chance she gets. Tenley Grace, I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store for you! We love you!  xoxo, Mama & Dada
