Our Pumpkin Patch Visit Failure

Last year my main goal for Halloween was take Amelia and – a then very little – Max to a local pumpkin patch!

Amelia’s Halloween Basket

Halloween is coming up and it’s a season I really love, especially with all of the yummy sweets and scary costumes. Now with children it’s even better especially since this year Amelia is a bit more aware of what’s going on (she’s terrified, but still she’s aware!). Themed baskets are a tradition that I want […]

On a Friday Amelia and Max go to our local stay and play which Amelia loves!  This week they held a Halloween party with prizes for best child fancy dress, best adult fancy dress and best carved pumpkin bought on the day. I was actually really surprised at how many of the parents dressed up […]
