You know how you aren't supposed to go food shopping hungry because you'll buy all sorts of stuff you don't need?  Yeah well, it is true as evidenced by the insanely large jar of marinated artichoke hearts on my shelf.

TBT: Toddler Activities

Share It:
We haven't had a Throwback Thursday post in forever and the nice weather reminded me of this post I wrote with ideas on how to keep a toddler busy!  Enjoy!

We've had a great summer and I have been able to keep Ellie busy despite the fact that she's a toddler who can not be pleased by anything other than Team Umizoomi.We have managed to fill our days with cute, easy activities to keep a toddler busy and happy for, like, 10 seconds. But those 10 seconds are magical. 

So here is a list of our favorite top 20 summertime (or anytime) toddler activities!

First Communion Party

My sweet Molly made her First Holy Communion recently. It was a beautiful event and we had a small party after with close family and friends. The whole day was perfect and I thought I'd share a few pictures of the party decor. I didn't go nuts with a big dessert table. I'm kind of over all that. But we managed to add some girly touches to make it feel special.

Spring Mantel (better late than never)

I've had these pictures of my shades of blue spring mantel on my camera forever!  I've finally gotten around to editing and posting them so consider it a mini throwback Thursday!  Ha!  Anyway, I gathered up some dried hydgrangeas from my sister's garden last summer, a few blue mason jars, and spray painted some things a lovely robin's egg blue to create a sweet spring mantel that will take us through to summer!
