Are your kids into stickers?  Broxton has recently (within the last year) really started liking stickers and we actually made him a sticker book.  Side note- we also tried the "pen pal" route and had one girl that we were exchanging stickers with... He LOVED IT!!!     For his birthday, one of his aunts sent him a sticker book and he was so excited.  That being said, I knew when I saw the two sticker books from Disney that he was going to be so happy!!  As much as he loves stickers... and as much as I am hoping he loves reading... Talk about a win - win situation!!! 
I am not sure if your house is into Doc McStuffins, but if you aren't... You need to be!   We love that show! It is so cute!  Doc is an adorable little girl that is a "doc…

We never really do anything for St. Patricks Day, yes... We try and wear green, but that is about it...  Last year, a silly little leprechaun caused chaos in the classroom... but nothing at home... I am thinking that this year the leprechaun might pay him a visit, would you like to know why???

Mainly because he will randomly talk about the silly leprechaun and his craziness at school last year, but also because now he is ALWAYS on the lookout for the little green clovers in our yard.  Actually, he looks for them in all yards!!!    I love the excitement and enjoyment from that little 5 year old... and like several of my posts this year... I want life to be more about #MakingMemories.  If having a crazy leprechaun come have fun…

While the city of Atlanta was dealing with the crazy winter weather we have been having, the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey circus was in town!   The opening night was postponed, due to the weather... so that meant that our tickets had to be exchanged for another day.  We luckily were able to go to one of their day time performances and even had the chance to bring a friend along with us! We have been lucky to go to the circus the past few years and since they come right around Broxton's birthday, we always work that into the celebration week of it all!
This time was no exception and he had  good time.  
I am not sure where Broxton went... but as with every fun event like the circus, we have to buy popcorn.  When you buy a big thing of their p…

How We Do It....

If you read my post last week, my little boy is now a big 5 year old.
I ask you this, WHERE does the time go????
It seems like just the other day he was born and though all the milestones are flying by, I am loving every single minute... Although I do wish they would slow down just a bit... 
Anyways- he had his party this past weekend.
We invited a few friends kids and then the kids in his class at school and his karate class.
We actually had a nice turnout and we really liked the whole thing.
I LOVED the smiles and excitement on all of the kids faces...
From the time they walked in, until they left...
It was screaming, yelling and a great time!
I did want to share a few pictures, but I also wanted to make sure I was not showing any of the other kids, so the pictures are limited... 

I think the party was a success.  That makes for one happy Mama!!!!

Working with Sterling Publishing, we have been so lucky to have had the chance to review several lines of their books... Up lately is the Dinosaur Books from Paul Strickland.  Let me tell you, if you have a young one that has a fascination of dinosaurs, make sure you check this out....  You will not be disappointed!  
We were sent Dinosaur Numbers, Dinosaur Colors, Dinosaur Shapes and Dinosaur Opposites.  Granted, they all seem geared for the younger kids, as Broxton already knows all of the subjects that are covered, but he did still enjoy looking through the books and they will be great to work with him when he is working on his reading.  I just wish they would have been available earlier, since they made learning fun!!!   C…
