4 Halloween Traditions I'm Excited to Pass on to My Kids

Is it just me, or does Halloween seem to be the craftiest holiday? I mean, every holiday makes for fun family crafts, but Halloween just has so many! And who can forget trick or treating, pumpkin carving, getting dressed up in costumes, and having themed parties?!

My family always had so much fun at Halloween — and now that I have two boys of my own, I am so excited to continue some of those traditions as well as start our own.

Here is a list of four family traditions I will be continuing with my little ones!

Instead of Trick or Treating, Why Not Trunk or Treat?

Trick or treating is one of the most fun parts of Halloween. But for some people it isn’t an option. Either they don’t live in a neighborhood where they feel it is a safe choice, or they live in an apartment complex and don’t have anywhere to take their kids to trick or treat. Well, I’ve got a great option for ya: TRUNK OR TREAT! 

Here's What You Need to Know About Getting Baby's Passport

Can you believe the holidays are sneaking up on us already? This winter we’re heading to Whistler, Canada for a big family trip including Grandma & Grandpa, my brother and his family, and us. It’s going to be an incredible time but it got us thinking about one MAJOR thing. Wyatt needs a passport.

Gone are the days of crossing the border with just a photo ID; now even he needs a passport. Which led to a some serious research about what exactly that meant. Here’s what I discovered when digging up all the things we needed.

A Toddler's Tour of Park Swings All Over Europe

In August, our family left the United States for four months to visit countries around Europe and then spend three months in London while my husband does a semester abroad (you can follow along on Instagram, if you’d like!).

Of course, when you’re traveling all around Europe with a 21-month-old child (plus a 4-year-old), you end up visiting a lot of parks. And whether we’re in the US or somewhere more exotic, my girls always gravitate toward the swings.

Over the last two months, I’ve collected quite a compilation of pictures of my little girl on swings around Europe!

Staying Stress-Free When Moving

We’ve just made a MAJOR decision. We’re putting our house on the market. If you’re anything like me, you probably feel moving is one of the most stressful, time consuming, and painstaking events in life. And that’s without a baby.
