Anyone else feel like they need a laundry intervention?  Yep.  Me too!  As a busy mom of three, it  always seems like it is a struggle to keep up on the laundry!  Just when I have things figured out, we get really busy, or go out of town, and the laundry just piles up!  This is where I’d insert the monkey covering his face emoji!  The struggle is real!  Or in my case, the laundry pile!

Living in Utah, my family has learned to embrace the cold winter months.  We love the outdoors, and come hot or cold, it is always nice to get outside and enjoy family time!

We recently had our first big snowstorm here in Utah!  As soon as the first big snowfall hits, our kids are chomping at the bit to get outside and play in the snow, and of course, build a snowman!  I always love seeing how excited they are for the fresh fallen snow!

We successfully made our first family snowman of the year!  He might be the cutest one yet, and the kids promptly named him “Frosty!”  We came in from the frigid air, and warmed up with a nice warm bowl of cauliflower cheese soup, complete will all the fixings!  We teamed up with Modern Atelier to capture our fun family time in this video, and it is something I will cherish in the years to come!  I hope you enjoy it too!

The Secret Life of Pets Max Puppy Pops & Family Movie Night Ideas

DIY Puppy Chocolate Max from The Secret Life of Pets Pops

The Secret Life of Pets Movie Party Snack Tray

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, all opinions are my own.

A favorite Family Tradition of ours is to have a Family Movie Night every Sunday night that we are available. It is a fun way for our family to be able to spend time together, laugh,  have a fun treat, and a good time!  We each get a turn to rotate what movie we all get to watch, and the kids just love having their own night to pick!  My cute five year old Thomas is so into dogs right now.  He might even spend more time on all fours, than upright these days!  He even has asked Santa Claus for a dog bone for Christmas! So funny!  He was so excited to chose The Secret Life of Pets (Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray!) for our Sunday night movie night choice!

The Secret Life of Pets is a cute comedy about the lives that pets lead when their humans leave for the day.  It’s by the same humans that brought us Despicable Me, which we were huge fans of!  The all-star voice cast includes Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks. The new DVD and Blu-Ray release also features nearly an hour of bonus content, plus three mini-movies including: Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions!

I love to put together fun treats to coordinate with the movie of the night!  I made a movie party tray with some “Pup” corn, “Meat Sticks,” Secret Life of Pets fruit snacks, and some “Puppy Chow” with assorted snacks including graham cracker bones.  I also decided to create some fun “Puppy Pops” inspired by the main character Max the dog!
