3 months away till my kids 2 and 3 birthday. WOW! is all I can say. After attending two birthday parties it got my husband and I thinking we should probably start thinking of our own kids birthday party. Since My kids was both born in October my daughter on the 7th and my son on the 24th. We have decided since last year to just have one birthday party for the both of them. So I pick the same date right in the middle of both of the kids birthday October 19th. I am already stressed about it. Wondering what to do and if people will actually come. We don't know many kids and only some of our friends have kids. Last year only my niece came so my kids didn't get much play time with kids at their own birthday party. We don't go to church and our kids are not in school so we don't know many kids. But we will see about this year. I am throwing them a Yo Gabba Gabba themed party so should be fun. I can't believe they are going to be 2 and 3 the older they get the faster the year goes.

Lydia and Mason's Kitchen.
I have learned a lot of different meals over the last months and realized what works for my kids and what doesn't. Since I have started buying better products and actually hand making their meals and snacks I have found out that my kids eat more. They eat more food and more variety of it. The first thing to come to terms with is that accept the mess! Once you get over that you sit there make the food and just pick up after. At least you have the piece of mind your kids actually ate well. I am trying more things next weeks for the kids.I am going to get some sandwich cutters. Target has a bunch in the one spot. Also going to try to find cookie cutters that can work as well.I will post about the new meals I am trying at the end of the week to see how good they turned out and if my kids even liked it. Any meals or snacks your kids are liking?
IPhone Apps. There are so many for kids it's ridiculous. These are some that my daughter loves and she knows how to turn on my phone swipe to her file and put on her games. I do not have my credit card information entered on my phone so she can not buy any of additional things on the apps. I don't pay for any of these. But they are all cute. I also have HBO Go and Netflix for the kids on those dinner trips out when they just don't want to wait for their food. I know its terrible and my husband and I said we would never be those parents. But we never get food out unless we have been gone to long and have to stop and get something. But check these all out and let me know any cool apps. you have for your kiddos.
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week! Let me know about cool things you have been up to! I leave you with some pictures of my kiddos.

I also went to my parent's this weekend and I found all my old Holiday world pictures and compared them to Lydia's so funny.
