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!

I don’t know about you, but I love a good tablescape. I think it goes back to all those episodes of Sandra Lee’s Semi-homemade Cooking show I watched back in the day. Sandra was the queen of tablescapes!

Of course, the holidays are the perfect time to break out your good dishes, wash those cloth place-mats and napkins, and polish up the silver. For me, it’s not really about trying to impress my guests. (Most people I have over know that we’re usually eating off of paper plates and using paper towels as napkins.) It’s more about making the holidays special. Going a little above and beyond to make sure that there’s just something extra. A little razzle-dazzle. A little magic!

So if you’re looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving tablescape, look no further! Here are 5 things you need for your Thanksgiving table.

Pumpkin Palooza

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:

Pumpkin Palooza!

Stone Mountain Park here in Atlanta had some awesome movie-themed pumpkins –

When people think of Santa’s little helpers, they imagine a bunch of tiny elves with pointy shoes, hats with bells, and little green outfits, each of them whistling while they work at their warehouse in the North Pole.

Spoiler alert – they don’t exist. 

Santa’s helpers are actually tired, frazzled, and physically/mentally exhausted moms that want to make this holiday season the best one yet. They’re the ones making the lists and checking them twice, fighting the Christmas shopping crowds, stocking up on wrapping paper, and buying all the ingredients for the traditional Christmas dinner. 

It’s hard work, but this year it’s going to be different. I’ve got some time-saving tips that will make the holidays an absolute breeze. You may even get a chance to prop your feet up and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, spiked with some Irish cream or peppermint schnapps, of course. Cheers, mamas!
