A Good Way To Celebrate Halloween

There's nothing quite as exciting for little kids as a Halloween celebration. In fact, some children spend months planning the perfect celebration, costumes and parties. Make this year the best Halloween yet with creative homemade costumes for your child. Start planning months in advance to make sure you have everything handy that you need to create the perfect costume. Remember that procrastination will do nothing to help you create the costume. Start taking measurements and fabric as soon as you can.

When it comes to costumes, make sure you talk with your child about the one he most wants to wear. Don't feel like your child has to be a mainstream character, though. He doesn't have to be an Iron Man or a wizard. Instead, you can let your child be the storybook characters Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and Moopus McGlinden, a character from a favorite novel or even a character you created yourselves.

Shop for patterns and fabric at your local store. You can also check out Pinterest for the best, most up-to-date ideas for different characters. Browse blogs to find sewing tips, ideas and further inspiration from other moms. Remember to take your time finding the perfect outfit plans for your child. You want this year to be the best ever and a holiday he'll never forget.

The Photographer In Me

One fine sunny Sunday, my mommy and daddy and I decided to stay for a while at Schlossplatz after hearing mass. We first had lunch at our favorite Bistro Terrazza and then when it was not so hot anymore, settled ourselves comfortably at the castle grounds. There was a jazz concert going on and although we couldn't hear much of it, we tried to listen and relax to the music anyway.

I was getting bored because I did not understand what jazz music was and so my mommy asked me to take some pictures using her smartphone and then after every shot I made, I showed to her the result. She initially wanted me to take photos of things that had the color of the rainbow but since it was difficult because the flowers in the garden only had purple, white and pink, she asked me to take photos of specific stuff.

Here are some of my shots:

Purple flowers
Dark pink flowers in bloom
So what do you think of my photos? Do I pass? :)


Unique Gifts for Babies

Have you ever tried to find the perfect gift for a friend but everything you thought up was quite ordinary? Now you can find unusual baby gifts that any recipient is sure to love. After all, who doesn't want something unique and special when it comes to their baby?


Consider childrens rugs at AnnaBean.com as the perfect room accessory for any new baby. These rugs will brighten up any room. Whether your friend is having a boy, girl or twins, the perfect rug will make the bedroom shine and sparkle. Choose something soft and comfortable that is pleasant to stand on but that also matches the theme of the room.

Another unusual gift you could get would be a hand made quilt. These aren't given too often as gifts anymore, so if you have a traditional friend who enjoys classic, creative presents, a handmade quilt offers just that. It will be something she'll treasure for years to come and that her friends and family members will enjoy looking at.

Finally, consider making a scrapbook for your friend's gift. A scrapbook could showcase her pregnant, her adoption process, the early years of her marriage or even pictures of your friendship. Choose a book she'll be excited to show off to her baby and include pictures from all of your favorite memories.
