Brynlee's 4th Birthday Party

Brynlee's Birthday Brunch, is how we celebrated this sweetheart's 4th Birthday.
It was such a fun, relaxing, snowy Saturday morning.
Luckily we had home made hot chocolate to keep us warm!
 We made popcorn drizzled in chocolate sprinkled with M&M's
for our Birthday guests and wrapped them up in cute fall bags

 Dark Picture but the only one I have of the whole table
Donut Birthday Cake, butterscotch monkey bread, egg muffins,
pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins... YUM!
Happy Birthday To You!!
Make a wish!
Me with the Birthday Girl!
Me and my girls with my mom

Giving up Toys... for a good cause!

The other day I was telling Brynlee about kids that get little or nothing for Christmas. Brynlee has such a big heart and cares/worries about anything and everyone. She asked several questions about those kids. Then I reminded her that her Birthday is next week and Christmas is coming SOON and if she wanted she could give some of her old toys to these little kids...
She decided to help me go through her and Ellie's closets and choose toys, books and stuffed animals that would make mostly little girls happy (we have few boy toys at our house!)
 She was so happy to tell daddy when he got home from work about the little kids she was going to make really happy.
Later that night we were spending time as a family talking about all the blessings we have in our lives. She spoke right up saying she was blessed with so many toys that she even gets to help little kids for Christmas.
It made me feel so good inside knowing what an impact this made on my little 3 year old!
She is such a sweetheart, and I am so proud that she is mine!
Challenge yourself this Christmas season to realize just how blessed you are and do something good for someone else!
*Also if anyone knows of a good place we could donate these toys to I would really appreciate you letting me know!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday~ Thanks for stopping by XOXO!

Cousin Time

We had so much fun the past couple weeks getting to spend time with Justin's brother, his wife, and their 2 cuties while they were here visiting!
Brynlee and Ellie LOVED every minute getting to play with their cousins Molly and Todd.
Right before Molly came here she broke her foot
so Brynlee wanted to make her a sign and send her a picture!
Playing at the mall
(since the treehouse museum decided to close for a couple weeks!)

Watching a movie at Grandma's house
Playing at Grandma's!
(Todd is 8 months old and such a CHUNK~ It's so cute!)

Had to share:
We were shopping and I looked down to find the girls sharing a french fry!
Brynlee said they are sharing like Lady and the Tramp share!
We even got to celebrate Molly's birthday while she was here visiting!
Face Painting
