Jake's First Year

So i'm going down memory with this kid.  As of right now, every day it's just Jake and me.  I love it.  It's been so fun being with him.  And I just happened to finally come around to finishing this project....don't worry that he's going to be 2 in Nov.
I'm glad I did this every month, to see the changes and growth.  That first year is a doosy but there are times that I miss it!  Miss those baby stages!

Some things I would have done differently:
-Made sure it was the SAME place, SAME position, SAME lighting each month.  Would have looked more unified.
-Written down more info about him.  I did write more detailed posts each month but didn't write down like height like I did for his weight.  Not a big deal but still would have been fun to see.

Family Finest: Bake-N-Make Cookies

What Back to School traditions to you have in your house?

I love spending time with the kids when they come home from school.  It's when they are excited about their day and want to share it.  So what better way to do that than over some decorating cookies?

Introducing Family Finest Bake-N-Make Cookies Decorating Kit.

It's a complete kit that has everything  you need!  It comes with 4 cookies, cookie trays, 4 colors of icing & sprinkles.






They bake for about 20 minutes and then you are ready to decorate!

I was surprised at how big these cookies were!  Lots of room to do lots of decorating, which the girls loved.

















 


They are found at Walmart in the Dairy section.  For only $5, this is a great kit to have on hand when the kids are coming home from school!
Honestly, my kids had so much fun.  And these cookies are really good.  Made it hard to stick with my "no sugar" diet!  Aaaand my house still smells delicious.  Defintely a fun addition to the menu when looking for a great family activity!

And this is all my own opinion.  I was not given this product to do a review.  I wrote this on my own accord!

I blinked...

And summer was over!


I swear the TN summers are too short.  Because we were in UT for so long, we didn't get much of a summer here.  But that's okay.  The kids had a lot of fun there with family.  I'll get to that soon.  But since I took pictures of Michael's wedding, there are SO many of them.
But this is more about the First Day of School.  So crazy that my girls are in 3rd & 2nd grade.  They just keeping getting so big!
Emma has Mrs. Black & Kate has Ms. Maynard.  I really love this school and I love the faculty.  We were truly blessed to have found a great home, neighborhood, town and school.  I am going to miss it next year!
