Birthday Banners

I’d consider myself to be a semi-crafty person. I like crafting, to a degree. A little project here and there is fun, but too much of one, especially one that requires lots of precision and exact measurements, and I’m stressed out and frustrated. Because of this, when it comes to Lil’ CB’s birthday parties, I [...]

I’ve always been a big fan of the movies and though we really try to be strict with limiting Lil’ CB’s screen time, I was super excited to start watching movies with him! Growing up, family movie nights, whether at home or in the theatres, were such a fun tradition. And it’s probably the reason [...]
