All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Advent Ornament Project – December 5


Holy smokes, I almost forgot about our daily advent project! I was making dinner (Thai chicken and mushroom soup) when I realized my screw-up and wracked my brain for a quick idea to do after bath time.

Thank god for clear acrylic ornaments, glue, and glitter!

I have no idea how these will turn out once dry, but I don’t really care – all I care about is that they loved making this one! I put the glue in and then let the boys pick their glitter and poor it into the funnel to get it in there cleanly. 😉 They seriously love glue and glitter, so they thought this was tops! I let them shake the heck out of them and then they got dressed for bed.


Bryson was not at all interested in having his picture taken – poor kid is soooooo tired these days (despite 2-3 naps) and just wanted to get to bed. Matthew put his ornament on the sofa table garland right after I took his photo, without being told. That means he liked it. 😁

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
