Emmerson Isabella Is Three!

Our sweet little Emmi turns three today! We are so excited to be sharing another milestone with her. We are so blessed to have her in our family. She has been the happiest and healthiest since she came into the world. Because I am so close to my due date, we, unfortunately, didn't really plan a birthday party for her. We took her out to lunch and some ice cream yesterday just to make her feel special. And we are probably going to keep celebrating her a little more today. She got a few presents yesterday as well. Once the new baby comes, we will throw here a more proper Unicorn themed birthday party that she deserves! I cannot wait for that!

Something we absolutely had to do was take her to get some photos done to document her turning 3! The photos turned out amazing and I love them so much. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new babe, but we also can't wait till we have a proper birthday party for Emmi girl. Stay tuned for that.

A Holiday Gift-Guide Favorite Ft. Book Roo

As the Holidays fastly approach- literally, Thanksgiving is next week. I am sure most of you all already have your holiday shopping list completely done. Most of you have already made a list and started crossing items off. If you are like me, then you have half a list and nothing purchased. I have been so busy lately that I haven't given it much time. Addi has made a list that is the whole front page! So she's ready. To be honest, I have been putting it off because the thought of going to a store and fighting the crowds does not sound fun to me at all. I am more of a shop from home- an online type of girl.

If you are still looking for a gift idea for a child, something that is unique and more meaningful, then I have the perfect gift for you! BookRoo! BookRoo is a book subscription service that delivers some of the best books you could find. They have three different options. Books for 0-3 years of age that are board books. Perfect for babies and to start out their first library, the Second option is picture books for ages 2-6 which is what we do. A third is their new option, chapter books, that are recommended for kids ages 7-10.

Starting your children's at-home library with quality books can be so easy and affordable. Subscriptions start at $16.95 a month! Once you get signed up, you can expect between 2-3 books, depending on if you get Board books or chapter books. Once you get your box, you and your kids will be so excited at how beautifully they come wrapped. The books come individually wrapped so it is like opening a gift every time. You can never go wrong with giving books. The gift of reading is something that you will never regret and these books can be passed down forever.

XO, Rachel

Making Memories with KiiPix

Thank you Kiipix for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

The first week in August we took a trip to SoCal to visit some family and to also celebrate Addis birthday. We also threw in a quick trip to Disneyland park because I didn't want to miss the Pixar celebration. If you went to the Pixar celebration then you know what I mean when I say it was not something to be missed. 

I'm working on sharing all about that trip and I will share that with you soon! 

For now, I wanted to talk about preserving those memories that we make with our kids. Taking photos is just not enough. While I take a million photos of our family a few of those special moments make it print. A few years ago, if you asked me why don't I print photos I would have said because they take up too much space. Fast forward to now, I wish I would have made tons more albums of our family photos. It might sound old school to some but the idea of having something printed makes a lot more sense now. It will definitely last longer and I don't have to worry about potentially losing those memories forever. Technology has definitely come along way but it is also changing constantly. I have family photos saved in cd's but no one uses those anymore. So print is always a good idea. 

Printing photos online can seem like a hassle. you have to order them and wait or sometimes go into a store and pick them up. Which is not that bad but if you are like me, time is of the essence and instant is better. When I was introduced to my newest obsession, the Kiipix from TOMY I was so excited. I couldn't wait to start printing photos straight from my phone. It is so easy and super convenient. There are no extra apps required, no batteries either. All you need is your Kiipix printer and film, NO WIFI! Get your Kiipix which are available on Amazon. 

Another great thing about my mini printer is that since you don't need extra apps or accessories, it makes it super portable to make the printing and sharing so much better. It folds flat for the best compact size. The availability to print mini polaroids is great, I was thinking of adding them the mini polaroids as gift tags to presents! So neat, huh!? Get your Kiipix and let's get printing!
