Hey There My Beautiful Friends!

It’s almost Halloween, and in our family Halloween is the start of the Holiday season!

With family birthdays and Thanksgiving in November, my birthday and Christmas in December and then New Years in January, this time of the year is like one big festival to me! I love celebrating, I always have. I was the kid who brought cupcakes to school for someone else’s birthday instead of my own. And now that I’m a mother, well, I celebrate, decorate and dress up whenever I can!

That’s why I was ecstatic when Gymboree came out with their newest Holiday Collection!

The entire collection is PERFECT for a Mama like me who loves to coordinate her kids! Head on over to their website to checkout all the other options, it’s like the entire collection was designed to be able to mix and match! And you guys, they even had a dress for ME! I hope that they do that more often because you guys know how obsessed with coordinating with the kids I am!

I let Thomas pick out his own sweater and shoes and then picked out Harper’s outfit to match. Thomas had a blast picking his items out and literally ran around the living room yelling “Choo Choo!!” once he decided on the Train Sweater.

Harper’s outfit was more than I could have asked for! The dress was perfect, but it was also SOFT which, at least for me is a big deal when picking out Harpers clothes. I want clothes that won’t irritate her sensitive skin and these totally delivered. Even the glitter tights were smooth on the inside, as were her coat (which is going to be on repeat this winter) and her totally adorable faux fur!

With two little ones getting ready can be a big ordeal, especially when we are getting dressed up all fancy like, so my husband and I have a strategy. DIVIDE AND CONQUER!

First things first though. I do my hair and makeup before we even start getting the kids ready, have you ever tried putting on mascara while holding a 5 month old and trying to entertain a 3 year old? It’s HARD, abort mission immediately unless you want some casualties in the form of raccoon eyes!

Then I pick out the kids outfits – coordinating of course – and give Thomas’ to my husband, who gets Thomas dressed, then takes T into the bathroom to do all the manly grooming, sometimes my little man even comes out with a spritz of cologne! And being the big boy that he is now, he tells us how he wants his hair done. Up (mohawk/spiked) or down (side parted and combed back) either way he’s always dapper.

Meanwhile I get my clothes on and then get our littlest one dressed, the less time she’s in her nice clothes before we leave the less time there is for her to spit up on it!
