Time For Fall

It's that time again when the weather begins to turn and the days seem to get just a tad bit shorter.  Your wardrobe changes from short shorts and tank tops to skinny jeans and long sleeve shirts.  When it's no longer flip flop weather and you have to pull out the boots, you know it's time for Fall.  Fall festivities and Fall decor; Fall foods and scents.  It's the time of year when your mind starts to wander to the holidays. 

In Costa Rica, Fall doesn't technically exist but we do get Fall like weather starting the end of September which does put me in a Fall state of mind.  It's also the time of year when stores start decorating for Christmas so it's not hard to get into the Fall mood.  Even though I feel as if time seems to be literally flying by, I am excited for the weeks and months ahead.  Time to get my Fall and holiday prep on.  Also, as a side note, September is my absolute favorite month as it is the month of my birth.  So yay me!

Making Memories With My 5 Year Old

And then he was 5 and not so much a baby anymore.  It makes me so very happy to see how far he has come and how far even I have come as his mother.  The beginning was rough but the journey has been absolutely wonderful.  Happy birthday to my baby boy on his 5th birthday.

My Baby's 5th Birthday Party

So much thought went into planning my little boy's party but I really didn't have to do much planning at all.  We decided this year to have his 5th birthday party at a trampoline park which proved to be a really awesome decision.  Everyone that attended the party had a blast and all I had to do was show up with a few decor and some food for my guests. 

I kept the decor simple as the party space was already decorated for me.  And as for food, I kept that simple as well.  All the food had to be portable and easy to eat, no utensils required.  So I had hotdogs for the kids and sandwiches for the adults with a few extra snacks and treats to mix things up.  Goody bags were a hit and the personalized water bottles were not only cute but handy as well. It was such a fun day and I am glad we decided on having the party at a trampoline park than having it at home.  It was more expensive but so much less work as all the planning was done for me and there was built in entertainment for all the kids.
