The Adventures of Zach and Zoe: Part 17

They help Daddy carve pumpkins together… I took about 50 pictures of Zach and Zoe last night on Jay’s nice camera, only to discover that the memory card wasn’t in it! I was SO upset. Luckily, I had snapped this one on Jay’s phone. [Photo taken October 28, 2015, when Zachary was 16 months old.]

Pumpkin Picking in the 919: 2015 Edition

This past week, Jay and I took Zachary to a local farm to go pumpkin picking. We went to Hill Ridge Farms in Youngsville, NC. This place is crazy! It’s completely geared for children of all ages. It will be more and more fun every year as Zach gets older. The pumpkins themselves were kind […]

Zach’s DIY Stay Puft Halloween Costume

Today, my TimeHop reminded me of one of my all-time favorite pictures of Zachary. Oct. 12 must be the one-year anniversary of the day that I started making Zach’s first Halloween costume. Here’s the picture that I took while I was trying the costume on him. He didn’t want to do it, so he gave me mega […]

The Gs Do Halloween

This year’s blog theme: Better late than never. We really did Halloween this year, so this is a long post. Hold onto your hats! You had to have known that we were going to do some sort of Ghostbusters theme for Halloween, right? Okay, so here is how it all came about. Naturally, Jay wanted to do […]

Pumpkin Carving in the 919: 2014 Edition

One of my favorite things that we do each year is carve our pumpkin. It’s a great excuse for me to dress up Zoe, drink beer, and take a lot of pictures. We’ve done it every year except last year (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). This year was Zachary’s first year carving a pumpkin. He “watched” […]

Pumpkin Picking in the 919

I know I keep promising to update more but I’m having that work/life balance issue right now. One of these days, I am going to sit down and document Zach’s big moments, even if no one cares by the time that I do. Maybe I’ll challenge myself to do that before Thanksgiving. Last weekend, Jay […]

Happy Halloween!

So, we didn’t have any time to carve our pumpkin this year (which makes me so sad, you have no idea).  It’s still sitting on our front porch, uncarved.  Obviously we have failed our first holiday decoration duties as new homeowners and will have to do better next year.  Instead, you’ll have to settle for […]

DIY Terra Cotta Candy Jar Jack-O’-Lantern

Another day, another DIY project inspired by Pinterest.  I was on a terra cotta kick after my jewelry tower/decorative wine cork tower (which is sitting on my brand new dresser, but is still a hybrid of both, lol) was finished and just started searching for “terra cotta crafts” on Pinterest.  I came across a picture […]

Jack O’Lantern 2012

I hope everyone out there had a good Halloween!  I’m still thinking about and following all of the Hurricane Sandy devastation.  I hope everyone is hanging in there.  My grandparents are currently on day 4 without electricity.    Crazy. Jay and I had a nice Halloween evening.  We went out to the Yard House, which […]

Pumpkin Carving in the 919: 2012 Edition

It’s that time of year again!  Jay and I carved our pumpkin on Sunday night.  We’ve done so every year since I moved to Raleigh and every year, I break out the old camera and take lots of unnecessary pictures to document that Jay can successfully carve a pumpkin! (2009, 2010, 2011.)  We also drink […]
