let’s party . buffalo check sledding party

27 Feb

three months ago we celebrated lila and cole’s fifth and second birthdays with a sledding birthday party. it’s probably time i shared it :)

a few of my favourite bits: the custom watercolour portraits by kate klassen, the wooden flag bunting, the photos from the kids’ birthday session (i’ll post those soon too!), the “s’mores on a stick” (so yummy!), the build your own snowman kit party favours, the almost buffalo check cake (thanks to these pans), the hot chocolate station at the hill, the awesome time everyone had sledding despite the storm that came up just as we headed outside, and being surrounded by so many of our favourite people at the same time :)

it was a really good day.

any time he knows he’s done something he shouldn’t have, he crawls up into my lap and. . .

here we go again!

i just found out this morning that we’ve been nominated (huge thanks to whomever it was that threw our name in the hat!!) for favourite family & kids blog over on apartment therapy!

apparently nominees were announced at the beginning of the week so we have a lot of catching up to do to make the finals this year, but if you happen to have a spare minute to give us a vote today, that would be awesome!! (we’re currently way down at the bottom of the list!)

we are huge fans of apartment therapy here in pinksugarland — for those of you who are new-ish followers, they featured lila’s toddler room tour a few years back! — and it’s such an honour (and lots of fun!) to be included among such great company in these awards.

big thanks in advance to anyone who takes a minute or two to head over and give us your vote! (and be prepared to get sucked into a bunch of amazing blogs in all of the categories!!)

happy thursday!
