When Life Gives You Apples...

Make pie! I made this delicious granny smith pie yesterday. I'm glad I thought to take a pic before the husband and kids devoured it. :)

Slice of pie and a scoop of ice cream just say Fall to me :)

Jake's 7th Lego Party!!

I have been gearing up for an upcoming party for Jake. He asked for a Lego party and for us to re-do his room. More on the room later but the Batman Lego clock is staying of course. :)

Has anyone ever noticed how HARD it is to find Lego invitations, Lego d├ęcor for parties? I bet like most themes he chooses, next year it will all be fully accessible at Walmart for every Lego party idea you can think of but then we will be on to the next adventurous theme ;) So far I made these Lego movie invitations

I found this adorable image at and edited through Picfont with our party information. On Amazon we got this adorable cake topper

Then I just bought yellow cups, red napkins, blue plates to keep with the colors of Legos. We will have the Lego movie playing :)
We ordered these Lego Sets at Discount Party Supplies.

It is the easiest and cheapest way to get figure sets. They are not true Lego brand but at around a $1 a piece, we made the sacrifice ;) The plan is to let each of the kids build their own set and race each other. :) It will double as a party favor and will have little loot sacks of candy to take home as well.

Missing my Nora

This year is definetely turning out nothing like the happy picture I had planned. I have been forced to deal with so much heart break. I felt so much joy at New Year and anticipation for what this year would bring. Now with every tear, I just keep clinging closer to Jesus and feel stuck in the big, beautiful blue ocean with him as my life jacket. Getting outfits ready for family pictures this weekend and going through Charlie's outgrown clothes to get rid of just all feel wrong. There is such a void. Missing my little Nora, my baby girl today.
