A twist on Movie Night

Lately Corinne is all about having Movie Nights!  Our usual routine is we lay out a blanket on the floor and prop the couch cushions against the couch and each girl gets a bowl of popcorn.  Pretty standard right?  Well last week while trolling Pinterest (of course,)  I saw a cute idea to make Treat Necklaces!  They were so simple it was almost silly!  The hardest part was finding a variety of snacks that the girls like that are circular with a hole in the middle!

We used Fruit Loops, Cheerios, Chex Mix pretzels and Gummy Life Savers.  Not the healthiest foods but that’s why they are called Treat Necklaces and not regular snack necklaces!

Clearly they were a hit!  Try them out and send me a picture!

3rd Birthday Festivities

We recently celebrated Corinne’s 3rd Birthday with a Music themed party.  This year we decided to have a party for her friends and a separate small get together with family at our house.  Not sure about you but this whole Birthday party thing is getting out of control and we chose to scale back this year and I am so happy!  Corinne, McKenzie and I have been taking weekly Music Together classes and to say they are in love with this class is a huge understatement!  They are constantly walking around singing the songs and making music throughout our house!  So when the idea of having a Music themed party came up it seemed like the perfect fit!

We started her party off with a 30 minute music class taught by the wonderful Leslie Pratt of Soulshine Arts Ct.  I give her a lot of credit, she ran a class with 18 children under the age of 5 and 13 adults and rocked it!

After our music class we all headed into a separate room and enjoyed some great music, snacks and a craft.  Since it was a party full of little ones we did a snack bar instead of a meal since we all know how much they would rather snack!  For a craft we made instruments out of plastic water bottles and some easy fillers.  The playlist was a mix of Motown, Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber and Fresh Beat Band!

All in all Corinne and her friends had a blast!  Now get ready for the flood of pictures coming your way!

Can we talk about this gorgeous dress?  It’s one of those dresses that as soon as you put in you start twirling and dancing with a smile on your face!
