When Judah was around a year old, my husband made him his very own “Face” Book: He took printed photos of us and our immediate family and “tagged” them with their names. For our parents, names like Nana and Pop Pop and Obachan and Jiji (grandmother and grandfather in Japanese) were used. Judah was quick to recognize Mama and Dada, but in the almost six months since then, it’s become his favorite book by far!

There is no doubt that neighborhoods will be filled to the brim with Frozen royalty this Halloween. No hood will be lacking in Queen Elsas or Princess Annas. And if you’re a big Frozen fan but are looking for something a little less expected, then maybe you should consider an Olaf costume for your Disney Baby! It’s also a perfect sibling costume if your other little wants to go as Elsa or Anna. I’m not a particularly crafty mama…actually…not really crafty at all, but this costume couldn’t be easier! All you need are a few items (many of which you may already have!), about 30 minutes, and zero sewing skills. So, let’s build a snowman!

Pumpkin-flavored everything may be the star of the show on Pinterest during October and November, but my vote goes for items shaped like those bright orange vegetables. You’ll definitely rocket to the top of the fun moms list.
Whether you’re looking for dinner, dessert, or a snack, or something simple to more elaborate, these 10 pumpkin-shaped recipes have you covered!
It’s hard to decide which one is the cutest:

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.
