Now that cards are all mailed, I can share our Artifact Uprising winner! The gold foil “Merry” won by a landslide which was perfect because I was rooting for it 😉We added little write-ups for each family member on the back and paired with that charcoal envelope – it turned out so pretty since gray was a big color in our outfits.
We pulled photos from a session with Brooke Palmer in Corona Del Mar. She was so amazing. If you need a photographer in Southern California, we loved her!! I’ll share more from the session below! This photo is absolutely priceless to me. Even if every other one didn’t turn out I would’ve been pumped to get this. Such a sweet baby, always ready to give you a hug and kiss (10xs over!) I love all the little snaps Brooke caught in between our posed shots. My big boys were totally distracted with all the beach has to offer but she made it all work! The winning picture. Thanks so much for these, Brooke!
There are a few gifts I am SO excited for my kids to open. These electric dirt bikes for the big boys and then a few for Raleigh. He is obsessed with helping me clean. Sweeping, mopping, wiping things up. Its been months of this and so I knew I wanted to get him cleaning toys. So many times I wanted to break into the stash early because i knew he could be having so much fun. But, I held off! I can’t wait til next week when he can play with these!
B.Toys Magnetic Lap Board // Ride-on Mini Cooper // Melissa and Doug cleaning set // Toy Vacuum // Raleigh is obsessed with Animals by the same author. Interactive Alphabet book // Mustela Cleansing Water (up to a certain age, babies tend to like the paper more than the gift so why not stock up on some of their care products? I swear by this – so perfect for cleaning them up in the winter without giving them a bath that dries their skin even more! And bonus they smell amazing after!) // Night sky projector // Patterned Blocks
If you’re keeping things fair amongst siblings a worthy investment would be this non-toxic crib mattress! They only do pre-orders so you have to call (888.435.2339) but studies show the chemicals used in crib mattresses haver been tied to SIDS. My paranoia is always so high when my babies are small so this was a no brainer purchase for me!
