October is Hispanic Heritage Month. Growing up in Miami, I don’t think I had a full appreciation for my heritage. Everyone in this city is from somewhere else. I probably have at least one friend from each Latin American country. Spanish is spoken everywhere you go here. You can eat tasty food from any Spanish-speaking country you can think of. So I guess I just never realized how special and unique it was to be from another country.
Then, my husband and I moved to North Carolina. It was interesting being in the minority. I started to really acknowledge how important it was to keep our heritage alive. Now that we have kids, it’s even more important to pass down our traditions.

I love Halloween: It’s right in the middle of one of my favorite seasons, and there are so many opportunities for great fall and Halloween-inspired craft projects. As much as I love crafting, I’m also realistic with an active toddler on my hands, too. Instead of a labor (and cleanup) intensive project like pumpkin carving, we opted to go for painting pumpkins with Judah this year. We decided to give the whole project a sweet family touch by each of us painting our handprint on our own pumpkins.
This entire craft project only took us 5 minutes to do, with super cute results – and Judah loved the chance to get artistic and a little bit messy! Check it out.

Halloween is just a couple of weeks away. Do you know what your kiddos are going to be this year? My girls keep changing their minds. One day they want to be spiders, the next day they want to be princesses.
Most years, I like to make their costumes myself. It’s fun to do and often cheaper than buying one, especially since they’ll only wear it one night.
If you are also looking to make your own Halloween costumes, click through this great round up of DIYs. There are tutorials for every skill type – from no-sew, to more advanced!

My kids love painting. We always have to keep painting supplies on hand so that they can get creative at a moment’s notice.
A couple of years ago, when Liam was still a baby, we bought a giant pumpkin and stripped Liam down to his diaper. We went outside and let him have so much fun painting the pumpkin (and himself). He loved it, and he really loved being able to play with the hose after while we cleaned him off.
