It may be Columbus Day for many of us, but it’s also time to start thinking about another thing: Halloween costumes.

We actually started discussing our son’s costume with him months ago. It’s not because we’re crazy for Halloween (it’s probably our least favorite, aside from the fun dressing up part). We talk about it for awhile because it’s a lot like the proverbial spaghetti on the wall: the more costumes we discuss, the greater chance that one will come up several times (and “stick”). Right now, a made-up superhero is in running for first place. So, “Super Hadley” it is.

Every year, I make and/or compile the elements of his costume. While sometimes this involves sewing or other intricate craftwork, my ultimate goal is to A) achieve a general idea of what our son (and, soon, our daughter…when she can talk) requests, and B) keep it as simple as Read More

It’s officially Fall!!! While, for a vast majority of us, it’ll take awhile before the leaves start falling, there’s nothing like the visual of deep, rich colors and the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot. It’s practically why pumpkin spice lattes were invented (or so I assume).

To go along with my favorite season, I present Exhibit A – the Thirsties print, Fallen Leaves. While I love the entire Woodland collection, there’s just something whimsical and fun and, well, all the awesome parts of autumn rolled into a diaper style.


See what I mean? Fun and inspirational and colorful (not to mention absorbent! #teamNAIO).

So, I thought it’d be fun to do a quick round-up as a shout-out to one of the coolest (and most autumnal) prints of all things leaf-related. I fully plan on doing a couple with my kiddos once the leaves actually start drifting to the ground.
