Stocking up for the fall

So I know it is early but I am getting ready to take a trip to Target to pick up some lunchbox supplies for next year.  Target always has some cute things to add to G's (and now C's) lunches.  Some things I might look for this year are containers (they always seem to go missing) and I hear my favorite Easy Lunchboxes are going to be sold there soon :), I will also look for some cute picks, cookie cutters and other things to enhance my lunches.

Before I go I am going to check Groupon Coupons.... I know right.. Groupon has coupons.  You have to check them out they have lots of stores, including Target.  Check it out here Target Groupon Coupons.  Always love saving money at Target, because you know how it goes you never can go into target just for what you need ;)
Happy Shopping!

Nutcracker Ballet - WOW

So G and I (and some great friends) were so lucky thanks to UsFamily Bloggers to be able to go to see the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker on December 17th at the historic Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore.   Having it there made the start to our holiday so special. 

We were so impressed by it!  We normal go as a G and me thing to the local nutcracker show so this was our first time to see the professionals perform.  We loved it, the story was slightly different than the version we see, but we were able to follow along just fine.  The music was played by an orchestra and let me just say they did a great job.  The costumes were so amazing too.  But most of all the talent of the dancers was fantastic.  I loved the extra touch of having some of the local children be in the performance also. They were so cute, and great budding talents.  We can't wait to go back again. 

Here is G and his friend posting and having a great time.

My Christmas Cards - Adoramapix Greeting Card Review



I got my Christmas Cards from AdoramaPix (http://www.adoramapix.com/app/home/) and once again they do not disappoint.  I have always been happy with everything I have gotten from them and my cards are no different.   They quality is awesome.  The paper they use is thick with a great feel. The pictures turned out perfect.  Every year I try to send out the best cards and this year I really feel like I will!

They had so many to choose from it was so hard to narrow it down to one.  Here is what I ended up choosing.



I hope my family and friends love them as much as me. 
Don't forget they are running a great special right now

Nuttcracker Ballet...Something I do with G!

I know its a bit early to be thinking about Christmas traditions.. I mean Halloween just ended and Thanksgiving isn't even here yet, but....

G and I go to see the Nutcracker every year.  We have gone since he was a about 3.  I am so blessed to have a boy who will go to the ballet with me.  He just loves the story of the Nutcracker.  We usually go and see the local ballet company (which put on a Great show), but this year I thought it would be really cool if we traveled to see the Moscow Ballet perform it.  He is over the moon excited. 



I thought I would share with you how to get discounted tickets.  I can't wait to go and I will share back how great it was.  Here is some info about it..

In 1993, Moscow Ballet toured the Great Russian Nutcracker to Washington DC, Baltimore, Syracuse, Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, New Haven, Reading and Charleston WV for the first time to critical acclaim. Directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet, and well known as a "Grand Dance Artist," the inaugural six-week tour starred principal ballerina Lillia Sabitova. It also featured the innovative rolling backgrounds first created by a St Petersburg Conservatory of Music producer, and which were the inspiration for Eisenstein's cinematic technique. Since then the annual tour has increased to include about 100 performances on the tour to cities from San Juan to Calgary, and from New York to California, traveling with two simultaneously touring companies of forty dancers each.

This week (and some of Last) weeks lunches

Some days I feel creative and some I really don't  I fee like my lunches were so much better when G was little.  Don't know if it is because I always had a theme or just more time...
Here are some pics of the lunches I have done the couple of weeks:

My AdoramaPix book!

Every year I make a year in review book for my son to document the year (now on book 8).  Last September I had son number 2 so to keep up with the same traditions I needed to make him his year one book.  I decided to try out the books from AdoramaPix.  I am always so  impressed with the products I get from them and this one did not disappoint.  My book is amazing!  The pages are so thick and the pictures just turned out great. It was so easy to create the software was very user friendly.  There were so many templates to pick from, or you could create your own.  I used a ton of photos so being able to create my own template or adjust a premade one was awesome.  This book is such high quality, I may never use another company again.  Even my older son was jealous that this book is so much nicer than most of his... oopps.  You need to get one, you will not be disappointed.
