Minions Lemon Cut-Out Cookies Recipe

Ever since he saw the first “Spicable Meep” as he called it back then, Tyler has been a huge fan of all things involving minions. We have toys, hats, shirts, jammies–you name it he probably owns it with those cute little yellow guys on it! Don’t believe me? Check out this Instagram Pic from just a few weeks ago. So when we heard that the Minions movie was coming out this summer right around his birthday we made sure to take him and Amber to the theater to see it. They both loved it, of course, and it was a great time. It was especially fun since a few days later we threw his birthday party which was Minions themed per his special request!

With the holidays right around the corner and things kicking into full gear I wanted to do something to celebrate, but not something that would feel it would be adding an extra stress for moms with full schedules during that busiest time of year.

Beating Stress the #Motherfunny way with NickMom from Nickelodeon #cbias

So, October has just been one of those months. As you know I was super, duper sick for the end of September and most of October and because of that ended up having over 3 weeks where I was “in quarantine”; and with my Mom-in-Law away and hubby so busy with school the most adult interaction I got was a brief hello in the school pick up line.

Then if you like me on Facebook you’ll know that Amber ended up in the ER last weekend in the middle of Friday night. She’s fine now but staying up till 4 a.m. and then having her off of school for part of the week recovering meant I had to drop everything for a bit and just take care of her.
