Simple, but perfect. Mexican food for dinner, topped off with brownies and our homemade candles, accompanied by some off-key singing! 😆

All of that equals one happy 11 year old.

Happy Birthday Logan!!

Today is Logan's 11th Birthday!! He's turning into such a great kid - kind, empathetic, observant, and so smart! He's got a great sense of humor too, which we're enjoying more and more. We love you kiddo!! Hope you have a terrific day. ðŸĨ°

A birthday party for an (almost) 11 year old!

Today, we celebrated Logan’s 11th birthday!! He has been wanting to do an escape room for awhile but they’ve always been a little too old for him. 

Finally, with a combination of finding one that was geared a bit younger, and he and his friends can now handle a little older content, we reserved a spot to celebrate his birthday today! 

The theme of the room was “Escape the Aliens” - we had one hour to solve it and sadly, we couldn’t do it!! :) We were on the last clue when we ran out of time. The kids had a ton of fun tho, and that’s all that matters!

After the game, we walked across the street to grab lunch, followed by an ice cream cone treat at Baskin Robbins! We gave the kids each a Rubik’s cube as a party favor, which they loved playing with and trying to solve, on the ride home. :)

Happy (early) 11th Birthday Logan!! Can’t believe how quickly time has flown by - and what an amazing person you are growing into!!

Move over Taco Tuesday...

It's Tamale Tuesday's turn!! ðŸĪĢ😋

Decorations are up!

The boys and I spent last night putting up our trees - and sometime in the middle of it all, they snuck around and wrapped a couple of presents (for Jon and I) to put under the tree! Pretty cute. ðŸĨ°

Happy Chanukah Friends!! 🕎

I decided to give it a go with some traditional Jewish cuisine for dinner tonight since it's the first night of Chanukah!

I made homemade challah and latkes - both were a lot of work! But, it was quite a yummy meal that everyone enjoyed (I mean, who doesn't love carbs?) - so the hard work was worth it. ðŸĨ°

What a workout!

A few knuckles may have been cracked during the kneading of this bread. ðŸĪŠ
