Brick Fest Live 2017 Baltimore

What a fabulous time we had at the 2017 Brick Fest in Timonium, MD.  My little guys really loved it.  When we first walked in and scanned the room we were amazed at the amount of legos.  Some of the exhibits my kids loved was the city white legos, the lego racing, the glow in the dark legos, the space legos and the lego walls.    My little guy loved the duplo legos. I was happy that all ages could have a great time.   All the lego creations that  were on display amazed me and my kiddos.  I hope that it inspires my guys to use their imagination more to build wonderful creations .  I highly recommend you checking it out when it comes to your town.










Thanks so much to USFamilyGuide.com for sending us to this great event!

Still Trying to do lunches!!!

Well my little guy is getting so big, that sometimes he just doesn't want his lunches to be so cute anymore :( or he wants to buy his lunch.  I still sneak some in here and there.  I should be documented them here as the days are numbered with him. Of course little man number 2 is starting to like to have them, so I throw some simple ones in from time to time

Here are some I have been sneaking in, but they are not to creative ;)









 


Coloring Fun

Fun with Colortime Crafts and Markers.  We were sent a glow in the dark trick or treat bag. Let me tell you how much fun my boys had decorating it.  My 9 and 2 year old worked together so well.  The markers were easy to handle and colored so nice. The bag was of great quality and we can't wait to use it.  The directions that came with it were very easy to follow, we will be looking into ordering more fun things to do. Everything is reasonable priced. They have items for birthday parties and more items include Markers, coloring pillowcases, t-shirts, backpacks, permanent fabric markers, and more.



Here are my boys enjoying themselves

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.
You must go see the show!  Right now you can SAVE 15% Off Moscow Ballet's Nutcracker CODE: BALLET

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
