Peek – A BOO

Happy Halloween!!  After our visit to the Pumpkin Patch we were in the festive spirit at the Pi-Henderson household.  I knew we needed to get photos of Carlota in her first Halloween costume, and ended up having a full fledge festive photo shoot. Using the pumpkins we brought home from the patch, some festive candles and a smoke machine….we were all set.  Pinxo (our Boston Terrier) didn’t want to be left out; so out came his pumpkin costume and the final puzzle piece was in place.

Carlota was so excited for these pictures.  She was chatting away and sitting so still for the camera.  As long as we had her chew bead necklace and the little pumpkins she was a happy little camper.  Carlota is in the phase of putting everything  in her mouth and chewing on it.  The invention of “Chewllery” has been a lifesaver.  We got ours from Two Brothers and Olivia and Carlota just loves it.  Their necklaces are made using 100% food grade silicone beads, BPA free and FDA approved and organic juniper and apple wood.  They have many different styles.

 Although Carlota was pretty festive in this outfit, it is not her Halloween costume.  I can’t wait to get her all dressed for her first Halloween with her friends.  What will you dress up as?

Our first visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Holiday season is officially commencing…..first up, Halloween!!  We were so excited to take Carlota to her first pumpkin patch.      We went to Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch and if you’re in the LA area I recommend you go.  Although she isn’t old enough to run around, get her face painted or play on the inflatable bouncy houses; she was pretty happy sitting by the pumpkins and eating hay.  It’s the little things!!!  Sharing these memories with her are priceless, and I know they are just going to get better as the years progress.  Watching her experience things for the first time are some of the best joys of motherhood.  She was wide eyed the entire time and soaking it all in.  I hope this will be one family tradition we continue throughout the years.

We found Carlota’s jumper from the Gap (on sale) and knew this was the perfect outfit for the patch.  I love finding cute seasonal outfits for the babe.  Since she won’t get to wear them very much, I always wait until they are on sale…..because once it’s a few days away from the holiday they always go on sale.

We just had a cute Halloween shoot with Carlota and Pinxo and I can’t wait to share that with you later this week.  I love getting in the spirit with her.
