Happy Fall! 

Fall is here!! The temps have cooled down a lot, the leaves are changing and we enjoyed the local Apple Fest in Mainz, Germany today. Can't believe this is our third year attending and with two kids this time. Here are a few photos of our day at the Appel Happel Fest. 

What are your plans for this Fall/ Autumn? I have to start working on Halloween costumes soon. 

Have a great weekend.

Vida's 4th Birthday

I am such a bad mom!! I forgot to post about Vida's 4th birthday party on here. It was such a hectic couple of months too. We had her party early, we moved to another house the following week, we took a quick trip to Holland, my parents came to visit from Canada and we took a trip to Spain together. I had like zero time to upload photos from my camera to my laptop. Oops! So glad all that is over and we are back to normal. 

Vida wanted a mix of stuff for her 4th Birthday. She could not decide on a theme, so I decided to use all her favorite things. I let her decorate the cart with anything she wanted and I added the little signs. 
Guests took home a party bag full of her favorite things which included, Kinder Surprise Egg, Play-Doh, stickers, Nemo tattoos,bubbles and an organic lollipop. She had so much fun putting them together and it was such a big help for me. 

Still can't believe I have a 4 year old. Kids grow way too fast.

Leonardo Turns 1 

Here are a few photos of Leo's 1st birthday. The theme we chose was Leo's Farmers Market, he loves fruit and veggies and for decor it was easy and so much fun to play around with. 
The garland was cut out from a book called 'A to Z fruit and veggies' 
I made vanilla cupcakes with whipped cream frosting 
The baker used real fruit and veggies for his cake topper 
Didn't even take a bite of his cupcake. Just like his sister at that age. 
Thank goodness for his big sister to help open presents :)
I kept this party super simple. Leo is a very clingy baby and didn't leave me much time to make a lot of desserts like I did for Vida's 1st birthday. But he had fun and he passed out shortly after everyone left. He had a great party. Maybe next year he'll like cake :)
