the BLOG days of {SUMMER}

To say this summer has been fun is an understatement…it has been amazing!  We have been all over the West Coast from Washington down to Orange County and lots of stops in between. It seems like one big summer party with celebration, weddings and special birthdays to attend!  All that fun has led to a lot of pictures {thanks in part to my iphone} and very little blogging.  Arrggg! But the good news is that I have projects to explain, recipes to record and travel plans to share! So stay tuned as I attempt to get caught up.  Hope you enjoy this sneak peek of our BLOG days of SUMMER!
…a month of traveling panfi’s, weddings, cousins, best friends, late nights, camping, the fair, a northwest road trip, olympics, napa porch fest with grampy’s band, fun with fifi, the beach, riding the thomas train and so much more…
 
P.S. If you are following me on Instagram you have seen many of these pictures of our travels this summer! If you are not on Instagram yet you should check it out.  Look at my side bar to the right go grab the AP on your phone or ipad {my username is: everydayVALENTINE}.  It is so fun and often feels like looking at a bunch of miniature blogs! xo

HOLIDAY randomness {tea parties, birthdays, kids & new year fun}

christmasTRADITIONS
Christmas, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tremper Fam, Birthday Fun, a Hot Chocolate Tea Party & a little New Year’s dinner!
 
Here are some pics of Paige making cookies with Daddy!  They made them for Auntie Mishawn’s birthday request…Homemade Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
 (try saying that 3 times fast)!
Don’t you love her apron (another great gift from Auntie Shannon)?
I made this crown with a $1 store paper crown that had a little girl princess design on it.  First I painted it and then while it was wet I covered it in glitter!  I added the flowers with rhinestone brads & the numbers are just a print out from our computer that I cut out with special scalloped scissors. This project is easy and quick and special!
To make the cookie sandwiches we used the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe {it is the BEST}…find it HERE! To make the sandwiches be sure to let the cookies cool to room temperature and then just add good vanilla ice cream (like Bryers) & chill!
 
We love Auntie Mishawn!
Annual Christmas Time with the Trempers! Wooohooo! We had so much fun (although getting a good picture was impossible)!
I even had time to squeeze in a little tea party for the girls…complete with PB&J sandwiches in Christmas shapes, Candy Cane Scones and Candy Cane Hot Chocolate! Yum! You could easily do this for Valentine’s Day with heart cookie cutters instead!  I told the girls to make sure they put their pinkies up…so cute!
I basically just put a bunch of red things that I had in the cupboards on their plates!
New Year’s Day “Fancy Dinner” with just the four of us!  Paige got all into it and helped me set the table…we talked about our “high’s & low’s” of 2010 and it was a great night!
