It's official, Max is One!

We celebrated my baby's 1st year of life today. We've been so crazy with our home renovation just about complete, just in time to enjoy his 1st birthday. I'll be brief tonight, but I wanted to share this cute Flipogram I made in honor of Max's birthday... :)

Much more later, lots of updates to share! And a little birthday party planning awaits!! :)

The Night Before Father's Day

I've taken a hiatus from blogging, but I'm just having too much fun with my little boys to keep up! :)

I wanted to share though, something sweet on this evening before Father's Day...

As you might know already, we make a huge deal for birthdays in our house! Like, week-long celebrations and half-birthdays, and special traditions I hope will continue for many years... Father's Day is also a special holiday in our house! Celebrating the DAD in our house, deserves a week long celebration too! So, if you haven't guessed it.. We've been celebrating FATHER'S DAY WEEK in the Prose house!

We decorated the house with a homemade banner and surprised Daddy with treats each day. The treats were simple, small gestures to show our appreciate for him. We gave him snacks he loves, homemade awards or presents, favorite meals, all leading up to his special day, on Sunday. And before bed tonight, we read a special book we've had now for a couple years.


This is the cutest little book and we've made it a tradition for Daddy to read it at bedtime on the night before Father's Day each year! And this year, he read it to both our boys! Max didn't quite sit still for story time, but we all enjoyed it together! I found this book at Pottery Barn Kids, 2 years ago, but lucky for you, it's on Amazon! Pick one up for  your family here!

I hope you continue enjoying a sweet weekend with your families and spoil Dad tomorrow! Happy Father's Day to my love, our boys are very lucky to have you as their Daddy, aka 'Best Buddy'.

Crafts & Coffee, yes please!!

I love finding new & fun things to do with my littles & today I'm going to share one with you! 

                                 Crafts & Coffee

The Mommy Spot Tampa is a great site I found on Instagram & loved immediately. It's the perfect rescource for all Moms to find local events for our families or a place to take in the daily dose of motherhood life.

This week, they kicked off a new series, Crafts & Coffee, on St.Patty's Day! And let me say, it was perfect! Delivering on exactly what it advertised & then some! Just check out the pics from our fun afternoon below!

There were Nutella and Jam sandwiches for the kids, and cookies! Juices and Go Go Squeez! The kids had snacks galore!!

Our little cuties painted a ceramic shamrock dish in honor of St. Patrick's Day! The biggest bonus, all the cost for their pottery painting experience and their delicious snacks, was included in our tickets for this Crafts and Coffee event! Going forward, the event is scheduled to take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month!

My little guy had a blast with his buddies while this Mommy sipped delicious coffee, courtesty of a local favorite, Buddy Brew! It was the perfect afternoon & I can't wait fot the next one! Be sure to follow Mommy Spot Tampa on Facebook or Instagram for details on the next Crafts & Coffee and their other upcoming events!

How did that happen??!?!

How in the world, is it already January? Errr.. February?!?! {Clearly, I've missed a bit of blogging!!}
How is it 2015?
Was it not just Halloween?? Christmas at least!!!
I know, I can't be alone in this feeling!
Well... I suppose I'll get on board & flip the calender to February....Yikes!

A quick recap of our final month of 2014, Jack's 4th birthday and the start of 2015!

We had a lovely December with our boys! Max's first Christmas and celebrating Jack's 4th birthday on a family road trip to see snow!

Our big boy turned 4! All he kept asking for was snow, so we made sure this sweet guy got his wish!!!! 

We drove to Stone Mountain, just North of Atlanta and enjoyed every minute of their Snow Mountain, complete with sledding, tubing, and a smores station! It was the most perfect day to celebrate our perfect little guy, Jack. Our first little road trip with our family of four was an absolute blast. We continued on to Savannah for a day, then finished in Jacksonville to spend the New Year with friends, closed out 2014 perfectly. 

I'll leave you for now with these shots of my sweet littlest boy, Max. Turned 6 months in January! I'll do my best to post more frequent very soon!! :)

Knock, knock...Who's there?? November! Yikes!

November is here?? What? And December will be charging on thru... busting in like Olaf, in Frozen..."Hi, I like warm hugs!" What?? Get outta here! Go back & return in a few more months!

{Can you tell I'm over the Frozen phenomenon???}

I need to "Let it Go" I suppose and just embrace the fast paced world we're living. Thank you Lord for these days. However fast you want to throw 'em at me, I'll take them because each day is a blessing. {At least that's what I tell myself after a long day of nap-strikes, diaper changes, tantrums and no lunch-break!}

It's been awhile since I shared a post, so I'll try to recap... My boys are growing big and keep me on my toes, everyday. But, I adore them. My hubby, works tirelessly for us, and we love him...and as for me, I'm the lucky one that gets paid in countless hugs, stolen flowers from the neighbor's yard, and the sound of my babies laughing, to care for them each day. Not to mention, I also wear my "mommy jewelry" aka Jack's stickers all over my body, proudly. {Even if, the Publix cashier has to point it out to me on my neck.} :)

Here's a shot of my boys from Halloween, just before heading out for our Trick-or-Treat Parade with our pals! Buzz & Woody! Max's first Halloween!!

I'll share more on my next post soon! Exciting stuff happening, finally making my pillow covers for profit!!! More on that soon!

Blogging has taken a back seat in my world lately. We are in absolute love with our boys and we are so truly blessed.

As promised, here's a look at some of the beautiful photos our wonderful photographer, Lindsay Faye, took of our little family of 4. {Max was just 2 weeks old} I am obsessed with them!

This boy. Those eyes. I love this picture.

There are so many beautiful shots, I had a hard time picking just a handful to share! :) We've started working on a new gallery wall to hang our new family photos in our house! If you would like to update your family photos, please consider Lindsay Faye!! She's amazing and very talented!  :) Message me for her info!
