    2019 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Babies + Toddlers

    This is only Everlee’s second Valentine’s Day, but I remember how difficult it was to find gifts for her at only seven month old and even now so at 19 months old!

We had a Christmas Party last weekend and we played a lot of Bingo so we needed some cheap prizes that would actually get used. I swung by the dollar tree and picked up stuff to make a DIY Santa sleigh made out of candy.

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year and I hope you did, too! Wednesday afternoon, when Shae got off work, we packed up our truck and made the trip to Rainier, Oregon. We spent that evening with my family and baked pies, visited and had a great time.
