Sweet Turtle Soup
Linking up with Sweet Turtle Soup, The Chronicles of We, Cocktails & Carseats, and Tickled Pink for Countdown to Halloween! Here are snippets of all the whimsical fall festivities we’ve enjoyed so far this October!
Dressing the Part
10-13-14 Halloween clothes
Having a baby born at the end of September pretty much guaranteed that we’d get all sorts of adorable Halloween newborn outfits… too many to even picture! He has 3 pumpkin hats and at least 3 Halloween costumes already, plus a crocheted pumpkin onesie and several of Old Navy’s Halloween graphic onesies.
Comfort Foods
10-14-14 Halloween eating
We’ve been so blessed by our friends who have dropped off meals all week so that we could savor extra cuddles with the baby in the evenings. Other than their delicious meals, we’ve been partaking in pumpkin bakery items, food trucks (2 of them), and brewed-at-home pumpkin beverages. We’ve also made pumpkin bread and pumpkin dip, as well as warm comfort foods – pork tacos, stuffed peppers, chicken/broccoli/cheddar soup, and more!
(Running season will commence on November 10th!)
10-14-14 Halloween crafting
Most of our crafting lately has been spent making sweet baby keepsakes and Christmas ornaments while the baby is still teeny-tiny, but we have squeaked out a few seasonal projects – I made an autumn burlap wreath and my kids painted their handprints on (fake) white pumpkins that they’ll add a new print to as the years go by. I also finished my maternity Shutterfly photo book and my fall bucket list (middle picture) and have been keeping the baby book up-to-date (no 2nd-child syndrome here!)
I’ll save fall decorations, festivals, costumes, and seasonal books for another week!

You can never have too many holiday type baby clothes!! Those pictures are all super adorable! esp the pumpkin beanie, I want one in my size.
So nice to have friends drop off food for you! And I love all the pumpkin shaped and flavoured foods popping into stores. yum!
oh man getting some holiday ornaments done ahead of time, that is good thinking! I’m always a last minute kind of person. Maybe one day…
Thanks so much for linking up!!

Clicking through as part of the Countdown to Halloween link-up …

You are my soulmate!! Ha! Seriously, crafting and baking to savor every second of the newborn time before it all goes too soon. No 2nd child syndrome for me either. I have oodles of things documented for my 10-month old; the same as my 3 year old daughter. I never want to forget a minute!

Also, saw your Stitch Fix link on the side-bar and just wanted to say I do Stitch Fix, too, and love it! Isn’t it the best service ever for a mama with two small kiddos?
