How to include the kids in Fall Home Decor

In the spirit of Fall we begin our home décor on October 1st to welcome the change of seasons and the two month long festivities.  This happens to be one of my favorite times of year, just for the home décor opportunities.

This year we’ve taken our style from front yard to back, and within the house with small touches of pumpkins, orange colors and natural wood.  We’ve even incorporated the kids new favorite backyard sand and water bench by Simplay3.

The girls directed Bash to place gourds and mini pumpkins along the bench while closed…..which doubles up as a little sitting area just for him, when not floating boats or building sand blocks inside of it.   After all of this decorating fun, we just may find a way to incorporate the Simplay3 water bench into all of our family photos.

Mi Gente on Sesame Street 

We decided to take advantage of this beautiful Fall Weather and spend the day on Sesame Street at Sesame Place, in Langhorne PA. http://www.sesameplace.com/

With this beautiful weather forecast of 80-85 degrees on the weekend we couldn’t resist but to take Bash to where we thought would be his favorite place. 

Boy were we right! Bash and his TwinDollicious sisters enjoyed the spooktacular Halloween festivities at Sesame Place!

That hour and fifteen minute drive from NY was so worth all of the memories we will have to look back on. Bash immediately knew who his friends were, as he posed for pictures and gave hi-fives with smiles and dance moves throughout the day.

Isnt it so awesome to watch your children enjoy something so much at such a young age? I think that we always wonder what will they remember and is it worth it to expose them to things so young that they won’t retain. The truth of it all is the experience. These little spongy people will become better adults because of the great memories they will have to look back on and the exposure to The positive things in life. 

Striving to make it count !

Halloween Harvest at Luna park with the little Mates

Fall is officially here, yet the crisp breeze, crunchy leaves and sweater weather hasnt kicked in yet and we are NOT complaining! 

We spent the first Weekend of Fall at Luna Parks Halloween Harvest.  Luna park brings back so many childhood memories for me, so to be able to share this place and their new awesome festivities has me reliving childhood with the best people on earth. 

Every year a new theme sets the stage for the parks design.  This year it’s Ahoy Luna – yes, tons of Pirate fun. Luna parks Halloween Harvest is opened every weekend from September 16th until October 29th for your little mates to enjoy, pumpkin painting in Blackbeard’s pumpkin patch, face painting, dancing, rides, pony rides and Halloween themed contests all in this Fall filled design amusement park. 

V, K and Bash were all smiles during the monster mash sing along with Pirates John and John.



Can you guess how much the pumpkin behind V & K weighs? If your guess is correct you can become the BIG WINNER!

October should now be called Octoween! Every weekend in the month of October was a night out for V & K… It was pretty awesome for mom as well because we all enjoyed the festivities and outing with friends.  

Here’s a few reason why Halloween is now a family fun filled month 🎃 for us

The truth about Fall

New York’s Falls are starting to look soooo good! The crisp smell of a cool breeze, with the mix of sun has kept our TwinDollicious crew outdoors to enjoy all of the Halloween/Fall activities. 

We’ve ventured to 3 pumpkin patches and apple orchards so far and plan to keep going throughout the month.  Why not… They make for the best photos. 

We chose these 3 stops because of their locations and ammenities of fun.

Our First visit was to Battle Orchids (91 Wemrock Rd, Freehold NJ) which is a favorite repeat of ours. 


The Second visit was to Easton PA, Raub Farms https://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&um=1&ie=UTF-8&fb=1&gl=us&entry=s&sa=X&ftid=0x89c469570d3e9781:0x17489cbfa8172602&gmm=CgIgAQ%3D%3D. Which has the most amazing art maze. Every year a local artist creates a new design within the Corn maze and this years theme was farm scene treasure hunt. 

Our third pumpkin patch adventure took place in Hillsdale NJ; Demarest Farms: 244 Werimus Road. Where a playground stood by the main entrance for the kiddies to enjoy before buying fresh farm picked and baked pies in the market.


The truth is that Halloween isn’t here yet and there’s so much more to do…like NYC’s Lincoln Center Halloween event… Which we will be sharing here, along with costume favorites!
