A Week (or so) of Instagram Action ❤

Well, here lately I haven't taken the time to update on the blog much. I would like to, really, but one can only accomplish so much in any given day. Our days are filled  to overflowing for sure! The summer has gone by so fast - I can't believe it's almost August!! Titus starts kindergarten this year, so hopefully I can get back to blogging so I can document all his adventures.
I really do love Instagram because it is so simple to post. And I prefer pictures over the lengthy FB posts anyway. So here is our past week or so....via Instagram. :)

LOVE all the faces of Thad!!
My mom made cookies while she was here and then froze some dough for us to bake later... They were yummy!!! 

A childhood favorite - English muffin pizzas!!

The makings for blackberry jam...

...and success!!

A mini-vacation!!
A family in our church is very kind to let us use their pool when they are out of town! :)

Thad loves his new teether - Sophie!! 

Also, it should be noted that I am posting this from my phone... So who knows what the format will look like. Guess I'll find out in a week or so when I actually log on to a computer... :)

Super Hero Birthday Bash -Titus Turns 5!

This was such a fun and easy party!! I wasn't really planning to do much for his birthday because of being so worn out and still recovering from my C-section 4 weeks prior. But Titus is REALLY big on parties! He had been looking forward to his birthday for months, so I decided to do a few things to make it a little extra special - especially since this was his last birthday before starting school.  

We decided on a Super Hero theme and got to work! To be completely honest, I wanted to spend NO money on this party because I hadn't been working for about 8 weeks.  I succeeded in only spending $10 total, including his present! That is not including the food because that was paid for out of the grocery budget... :)

Like our Valentine Party, we kept the guests to family only.  My mom and sis and her little boy were in town to make it extra special.  I think family parties are my favorite!!

So now for a few fun details and action shots.

Titus had fun helping me make the backdrop! The girls even helped by putting some of the windows on. Titus loved it so much that we ended up hanging it in his room for a few weeks! :)

Party Food - We had hot dogs (Wonder Dogs), popcorn (POP), chips and salsa (Krunch and Dunk), and fruit (Ka-Bams).

Cake - always Titus's favorite part!

These super delicious cookies were made by my very talented sister!

Let's get this party started!!

Happy to finally be FIVE!!

Our favorite Super Heroes!!

Titus and his cousin Kaiden
I made a paper bag pinata for the kids to have fun with.  Titus wouldn't look when he was swinging - ha!! I actually just recycled all the Valentine and Easter candy still in our cupboards  - they didn't care!!
You can see in the bottom photo that my dad was able to attend via Skype - very thankful for technology!!
This was the biggest hit of the party!!! Silly String aka Spider Web Spray

For Titus's gift, we gave him all the Hot Wheels that Tim had been saving for him since Tim was a kid - it was A LOT!!! They had fun looking at and opening them all. :)

♪♫ Happy Birthday to Titus! ♪♫

Make a wish!!!
