Bearcubs Co.

We definitely have a special love for blankets in this house and now that I have kids, that love has grown. All my babies have found a favorite blanket at a young age and I love that it is a security for them but my favorite thing about kids having blankets is having a little keepsake for them.
 Bearcubs Co is the cutest handmade shop full of the dreamiest blankets that you could ever imagine. Plus, the mama who runs it is the sweetest thing ever!! I was on the hunt for something soft and comfy for the boys but also something that would match their room. The Geo Bear and Woodland Moose Blankets were a perfect fit for my boys and they have quickly become their favorite blanket that they can't sleep without. They are minky with faux fur backing and are amazingly soft! We also learned that they wash really well since they were the go to security blanket during our stomach bug last week.
Finley has to sleep with a blanket near her face so the lovey sized blanket in Lovely Deer is perfect for her. It has quickly become her favorite if you couldn't tell in these pictures....and the print you guys, is to die for!! 

Bearcubs Co is so generously offering everyone a discount to use on these gorgeous blankets, Just use code MAMAANDMISTER10 at checkout. Code expires 1/6. We are also giving away a lovey sized blanket on my Instagram @whitrichins  so make sure you check it out. Happy cuddling friends!

Merry Christmas

Another Christmas has come and gone and like I say every year, this was the best one yet! Like I said in my last post, everyone had the stomach bug the week of Christmas. Gage woke up Christmas Eve morning throwing up again but thankfully was fine by the afternoon. Our Christmas Eve traditions consist of opening A present that has festive Jammie's, driving through the Festival of Lights, baking santa's cookies and sprinkling reindeer food on the front lawn. The boys were so excited it took way past bedtime for them to fall asleep. Ryder was the first to wake up and woke the rest of the house up with a nice loud "oh my goodness Santa came!!" Ryder & Gage got an array of things they needed sprinkled with a few wants which included books, light sabers, hot wheel cars, blocks and army tanks. Ya know, the essentials. Oh and my mom got them a fish tank with which we had to fill with glow fish the very next day and I'm pretty sure their lives are now made. 
Watching the boys rip open presents and being so excited is definitely the highlight of every year. Finley just smiled and tried to eat wrapping paper and just stared at me all crazy with my excitement that it was her first Christmas. This was our first year buying girl presents instead of all boy stuff and you guys, my life is now complete. Two words. BABY. DOLLS. All the heart eyes even though she couldn't care less about said baby dolls. 

We are so so sad that Christmas is over but we are still stretching out every last minute of th holiday and having everyone on Christmas break has been so much fun. Plus, a new year is so refreshing. 

I hope you all had a very merry christmas!

Christmas Week

You guys, how is Christmas just a few short days away?? I guess time flies when you're having fun! The week of Christmas is the best week of the whole entire year! It also is the most stressful week of my life because it never fails that every year someone gets sick the week of Christmas. Last year every single one of us were dropping like flies with the worst stomach bug you could imagine. I'm seriously still traumatized! So every year when this week rolls around I pray hard for no sickness. Buuuut believe it or not both Ryder and Gage came down with the stomach bug this week. {which is also why my little old blog has been quiet this week}  It never fails. So they are feeling much better and I am just praying everyone else is spared. Besides being stressed out of my damn mind we have been busy watching every Christmas movie we can think of, decorating gingerbread houses, spending days in festive Jammie's and visiting a few of santa's helpers. 

Even though we've had a rough week, the forecast calls for a very white Christmas, Ryder & Gage are both old enough to understand The Holiday's and it's Finley's first Christmas! Seeing Christmas through Children's eye's is just good for the soul. 

I'll be signing off from the blog for a few days but you can always catch me on Instagram @Whitrichins 

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!!
