Turkey Coma!!

Ahhhh we had our Thanksgiving feast yesterday! My husband is the chef in our family, and he did an amazing job! A gorgeous turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, greens, gravy and the list goes on and one! After we ate an enormous amount of food, we said what we were grateful for!  My son was the sweetest... at 5 1/2 years old, he said he was most grateful for having good friends, a happy family and lots of Thanksgiving food. he then said he was thankful for his big bin of lego!! Made us all smile!

This weekend we also enjoyed some "fall fun"! We attended a pumpkin festival and enjoyed a horse drawn wagon ride!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can now focus on Halloween! Decorations and costumes need to be finalized for kiddie parties and of course the "big night"! My daughter will go as a lion (hand-me-down costume), and my son wants to be Indiana Jones, his idol!

I have been truly amazed with so many awesome handmade costumes that I am having a hard time deciding! I saw this one on and thought how clever to be two characters in one!

Little Red Riding Hood with Wolf ears and tail!
I also get a kick out of people who dress up their pets! Our dog (wiener dog named Oscar), is now eleven years old and could care less about the Halloween festivities. He would rather lounge in front of the fire, so we will leave him alone this year!!

Hahaha I had to chuckle at this one!
I love this idea for pumpkins this year... I found this idea on You can buy the plastic vampire teeth at your local dollar store! You just carve a mouth, and slide the teeth in, brilliant!!

Halloween items are no longer available in the shop, since I want to make sure they arrive in plenty of time! But..... the new Holiday Collection is now available for all of you early Holiday shoppers. I used both traditional and modern holiday colors for this year's collection! You can view the entire collection here at Giddy Up & Grow.
