Five on Friday

Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day Weekend!! 

We are planning on taking the kids camping and on a float trip this weekend. It will be their first time for both! We're going with some friends so it should be a fun time. We're just going Saturday and coming home Sunday and then Monday we're meeting my family at Six Flags for the day. :-)

I snapped this picture of Jackson and Max sleeping one night earlier this week and it's just the sweetest. Max always starts out in Jackson's bed every night. ♥

I recently ordered this dress for Avery and she and I are both anxiously awaiting it's arrival on our doorstep. She LOVES the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas so it will be perfect for her to wear to school the few weeks leading up to Halloween and maybe even into Christmas depending on if you think of it as a Christmas movie too. ;-) Knowing Avery, she'll want to wear it all year long.

I recently finished reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. It was SUCH a good book and I can't recommend it enough, but definitely have tissues nearby while reading it. There are multiple times in the book that you'll need them.

After making lunches for 2 kids now for the last 2 weeks, I've searched around for ways to make that process a little easier. Avery eats a peanut butter sandwich every day and does not like the crust, of course. So I've been cutting it off with a knife. However, after a couple weeks of that I went straight to Amazon to find an easier way and found this handy tool. It cuts the crust off and seals the edges. It is supposed to be delivered tomorrow so I'm excited to try it and see how it works. I also ordered these sandwich containers a couple weeks ago to keep their sandwiches fresh and they've been working really well.

Have a great weekend!!!
