A couple weeks ago by oldest turned 4! How did she all of a sudden grow up and be 4 I don’t know! I feel like yesterday she was turning 1 and a week ago she was born but somehow 4 years have flown by and my sweet itty bitty baby girl turned 4! She is the most energetic, petite, dramatic little girl ever! She has the biggest heart for others and is seriously the best big sister! The past two years  I have asked her, since she is at an age where she gets what a birthday party it, what she wants to do for her birthday party and this year she requested the trampoline park! I wasn’t all that surprised since she has no sense of fear and is always jumping, tumbling, flipping off anything she can around the house! The only problem was I have never hosted a party not in my own home with the ability to tinker and play around with staging and decorating. She was very ademet that she have a paw patrol party which once again didn’t suprise me! I was sorta hoping she would go for the spa day with her little girlfriends but I guess that will come in a few years time! So once I knew she wanted a paw patrol party my creative juices started flowing and I had all sorts of ideas of what I wanted to do but once again the venue was “the thorn in my side”. We decided to go to Air U trampoline park and so I called to get an idea what their “party room” was like. The girl I spoke with was super friendly and helpful but the only hiccup was that we would only be allowed in 15 min before our party started to get set up! 15 minute people!! Ahhh that meant I needed to be extremely organized and know what I wanted to do before I got in there and once I got in there I had to work fast to pull it off! I am happy with how it turned out and the staff kept commenting on how it was the best decorated party they had ever seen there which made me feel good! I even had other kids ask if they could join our party lol but best of all my sweet little birthday girl kept saying “mom this is the best party ever” which made it all worth it! I have to take a minute and talk about the most amazing Paw Patrol birthday cake that Dana from The Cake Place made for our party. Dana was so friendly and extremely creative. When I met with her I was impressed by her super cute studio and her professionalism yet she was so accommodating and easy to work with! Not only did the cake look super cute and the birthday girl loved it but the cake was so delicious. By far the best fondant Ive ever tasted. I was so excited thinking we would have left overs but our guests loved the cake just as much and it was gone so quickly! The other cute part of our party was the kids “take home” gifts. They each got to adopt a paw patrol pup which apparently not only where my babies excited but so where their friends. I decided to go with this idea when my two oldest babies each got a paw patrol stuffy a few months ago for accomplishing different goals. Those pups go everywhere with them and they sleep with them each night so I thought how fun for their little friends to each get their own pup at our party! Well you have no idea how hard to became to find enough pups for all our guests! Thanks to target, toys r us, and amazon I was able to find enough for each of our guests. Its so funny to me how when I am putting together a party I get stuck on specific details and I won’t budge and those pups where one of them.

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
