Baby's Day Out
Posted by Andrea Howe
The day before Thanksgiving, I packed up the kids and headed out to a local family farm. On the agenda was visiting the field of sheep, where a few new baby lambs had just been birthed, and learning about how chickens are raised for eggs and to eat. I went with the notion that the older kids, ages 6 and 8, would be the most interested in the farm, but it turns out Hayden was the one who seemed to get the most enjoyment out of watching the animals. Here’s a little peek at our day on the farm.

Fern’s second birthday is right around the corner in January. We were trying to think of an extra special way to celebrate, and what better way than hanging out at the happiest place on earth? Yep! We’re going to Mickey’s house!

Head-wraps and headbands. The saving grace of many a busy mama come early morning school drop-offs and/or strolls to the park. As a mother with long, finicky hair, there just isn’t enough time everyday to primp and preen in the mirror. I’m all about quick, good-looking accessories that help draw attention away from the fact that maybe I didn’t have time to wash my hair that day.
Now that the cold weather is upon us (where I live anyways), warmth is also important. So I hacked this Celtic knot head-warmer that I’ve been seeing a lot of (and adore) thinking ahead to the holiday season and planning out some of the gifts I’d like to make for family and friends. I especially love that these headbands look adorable on babies and toddlers too, making this a wonderful gift to make for new moms and their little gals!

With Thanksgiving coming, I’ve rounded together some of the cutest DIY accessories for you to whip up in the spirit of the season. We all have a lot to be grateful for, and even though I already celebrated my Thanksgiving, most of you know by now that I’m a sucker for crocheted baby hats and newborn photography props.
Many of these projects are gobble-centric, while some of them will make the transition into the holidays quite nicely. There are easy, medium and advanced skill-set DIYs here, something for everyone! I know I’m totally inspired to make some bodysuit appliques for the upcoming holiday season; it looks so easy and cute with endless options!

What do you get when you combine your husband’s tuxedo, a formal outfit for your baby, and a tiny top hat? An amazing first Halloween costume for our baby, that’s what! Here at our house, we like to think outside of the box when it comes to Halloween costumes, so for Judah’s first Halloween, we thought there would be nothing cooler than going as an old-timey ventriloquist act!
