Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! It's hard to believe tomorrow is November 1st. Crazy!

One of my sweet customers posted this picture on Instagram last week, and her caption made me LOL.

Here's what she wrote, "Let's get the boys cute little matching pumpkin duds and we can get the cutest pictures of them at the pumpkin patch! Or not. Maybe next year, boys?" Katelyn, they are adorable! Thank you for allowing me to share.

I'm guessing every mom out there can relate to this. We plan in our minds just how great the pictures are going to be....and then reality sets in and no one wants to cooperate! Not to discourage any of you, but 3 of my 4 children are teenagers, and they still refuse to cooperate at least 50% of the time! #justholdstillandsmile #itsnotthathard

So what I'd like to say to all of us is that it's okay. Look at Katelyn's picture. They *are* dressed in cute matching pumpkin duds, and a memory *was* made. Maybe not her original vision, but a sweet memory just the same. These days are fleeting. So, I encourage you, keep dressing them up and taking pictures. I suspect, in the end, the most "imperfect" pictures are likely to bring the most joy because they represent real life. And, it's those everyday, imperfect moments, that make us who we are. Family. #whatablessing

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your little trick-or-treaters have a fun night and score (you!) some great candy. #givemethetwix #andsnickers #yum

And even though it's Halloween, in case you're planning ahead, you can use the code OCTOBER to save 20% on these smocked Thanksgiving outfits. It's going to be here before we know it!

Actually, the code OCTOBER will save you 20% on our entire Fall Collection!  You'll find smocked, monogrammed, and appliquéd items--all in stock and ready to ship! Today is the last day, so be sure to take advantage of the extra savings. :)

Have a great day, and I'll see you back here next Monday!

If you smile nicely for this one, we’ll do a “funny face” picture next! Works almost every time :) And, that funny picture is usually everyone’s favorite!
