Our Month In 9 Squares – October 2018

Dear October 2018,

You are always a month filled with PUMPKIN everything! This month we enjoyed the pumpkin patch, plenty of pumpkin spice, carving pumpkins, lots of candy corn, creative costumes, a fall festival and Kensie’s 1st Halloween!
Thank goodness the temperature has cooled down, it actually felt like fall for a few days this month with the added bonus of rain.
Soccer season has also kicked-in which is always a favorite around here, so we are excited for more sports-filled Saturdays.

But of course, November we are grateful for your arrival… Bring on the feast!

Halloween Costumes 2018

Yet again, this year I decided to let the girls pick costumes that resemble their personalities.  My girls are the epitome of opposites, one is a perfectionist that likes pretty and sparkly things and the other likes to be goofy and silly most of the time.  So their costume choices this year did not come as a surprise to me.

Candy Corn Photo Shoot | Scrumptiously Adorable

When my oldest daughter, Paisley, was 4 months old, I got this crazy idea to take photos of her in a tub of candy corn.  Don’t ask, I have no idea!… But to this day, those photos definitely have a “sweet” spot in my heart.  So of course, I had to reenact this photo-shoot with Payton, when she was 7 months old and yet again for Kensie who is now 6 months old.  Each photo shoot has it’s own personalized touch, and it is so much fun to see their “sweet” personalities shine through.

One thing I learned through the years of doing this photo shoot is that the older the baby, the “sweeter” their sweet tooth!  At 7 months old, Payton already had a desire for all things yummy and we had a heck of a time keeping the candy out of her mouth, where Paisley and Kensie just thought they were surrounded by toys to play with.

Without further ado, enjoy these SCRUMPTIOUSLY ADORABLE photos! Continue Reading

This Winter BUNDLE UP In Style | Featuring The Children’s Place

I love jackets, scarfs, hats, gloves and just about anything winter clothes related. So when it comes to picking out adorable winter looks for my girls, I have way too much fun!  Contrary to popular belief, Phoenix can still get chilly in the winter. Subzero? No.  Teens to 30’s? You betchya.  For this reason, I need to get my girls ready for the change in season.  For my little ones, I love bundling them up in the marshmallow-like puffer jackets with a coordinating hat. There is nothing cuter in my mind than a BUNDLED marshmallow running around!

Fall In Prescott

When you live in the valley of the sun, escaping to the mountains is always a welcomed retreat. We were able to spend the weekend in Prescott, Arizona to get some much needed time in the great outdoors.  Cooler weather and pine trees did not disappoint!

Adventures at the Pumpkin Patch

Today we were blessed with a fun morning at the pumpkin patch, but in true Arizona glory it was a scorcher! 97 degrees makes it hard to feel “fall-like” at a farm, but we did our best to ignore the sunny heat and just enjoy the fall festivities.  Surrounded by mom friends and lots of little ones running around, we still managed to have a great time!

Mother Nature’s Farm in Gilbert, Arizona provided a fun morning of pumpkin picking, pumpkin decorating, hay rides, goat feeding, corn mazes and bounce houses. With all the excitement, the kids didn’t even realize how hot it was, they had a blast!  I always love fall activities and the opportunity to experience new adventures with my girls.


Here are a few pumpkin-loving photos of our pumpkin patch adventures!
