There are so many cute Thanksgiving themed outfits for babies. Especially the “first Thanksgiving” outfits – adorable! (Take a look at this one and this one. So cute!) And I still have no problem finding cute little Thanksgiving dresses for Maddie to wear to celebrate the holiday.
But where are all the cute boy Thanksgiving clothes?! I have the hardest time finding any!
So a few years ago, I started a fun tradition of getting Graham a funny Thanksgiving t-shirt to wear for Turkey day. Here are a few from past Thanksgivings. (Excuse the terrible quality of these pictures. This was BTB – before the blog.)
This recipe for Caramel Apple Slab Pie with Autumn Glory Apples was sponsored by Autumn Glory apples, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. #autumngloryapple
My favorite season is autumn. The weather is perfect, there are so many fun outdoor activities going on, and so many opportunities to spend time with friends and family. And of course, there’s tons of amazing fall food! From soups, to pies, to warm crock-pot meals, autumn is definitely all about delicious comfort food.
One of my favorite fall comfort foods is apple pie. Apples are amazing in autumn – they’re at their peak of flavor, and they imitate the autumn weather – crisp and sweet. This autumn, here in Atlanta, a new variety of apples is headed our way. Autumn Glory apples are rich with the fall flavors of sweet caramel and warm cinnamon. They’re perfect for snacking, slicing for a cheese platter, or baking in a warm apple pie. My kids love them too, and while they usually only take a few bites of an apple and leave the rest sitting on the counter, they gobble up entire Autumn Glory apples!

Where there are kids, there are germs. All the parents out there know what I’m talking about! In the fall and winter, someone is almost always sick in our house. The kids bring home so many germs from school and we end up passing around all different types of sicknesses and ailments. I do my best to prevent sickness by making sure the kids are washing their hands and not having any play dates with children that are recovering from an illness. But no matter how hard I try, someone is bound to catch something and bring it home to infect us all!
Having a fully stocked medicine box in our kitchen has come in handy so many times the past few years. You never know when someone is going to come down with something, and having different medicines and remedies readily available is great for when a bug hits our house. Because there’s nothing worse than having to take a sick child to the grocery store. Except for taking two sick children to the grocery store when you’re also not feeling well. Being prepared is key! Here’s how I prepare our medicine box.
10 years! I still can’t believe we’ve been married that long.
Josh and I went back and forth about what we wanted to do for our anniversary. Years ago we decided we’d go back to Italy to celebrate, but with two young children, that was out of the question. We also talked about going to Disney World. (We’re both big Disney nerds and we honeymooned at Disney.) But Disney is best when you have at least 4 or 5 days to explore, and again, with the kids being so little, we knew childcare wouldn’t work out for us to be gone that long.
So we narrowed it down to places we could visit that were driving distance from our house. Asheville came up in conversation, and we both agreed it would be beautiful this time of year. I remembered reading about The Grove Park Inn a while ago in a Southern Living magazine, so I checked out the website. It looked gorgeous and after I saw pictures of the spa, I was sold!
We booked a two night stay, but I wish we’d been able to stay longer. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. From the huge fireplaces in the great hall, to the breathtaking views of the mountains from the restaurants and from our room, to the spa that was basically my personal version of paradise, everywhere we turned in the historic resort was another area of opulence.
We sure had our fill of pumpkins this year! We visited a pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins, and went to two different pumpkin festivals. We also made pumpkin pie and (of course) had at least one or two pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks. Needless to say, I’m pretty pumpkin-ed out at this point!
But in case you’re still craving more pumpkin, here are all the fun pumpkins we saw this month:
