  • Preventing Squirrels From Eating My Pumpkins!
    Tweet I have been at my wit’s end with pumpkins. I tried growing it (I will have to admit that the entire team had no luck – blame it on the weather) but caved in and bought 2 from Wilson Farms. We barely managed to get a chance to enjoy the view of our porch with them sitting on the railing when lo and behold we return home one day and found one eaten. I...

  • Wilson Farms Spooky Hayride!
    Tweet Being away from family means traditions take a knocking. We have been struggling to create new traditions not in line either with our beliefs or our pockets. One of those traditions that happened  quite by accident a few years ago was the Spooky Hayride at Wilson Farms, Lexington MA. Wilson Farms is a place we go to as a treat to get fabulously fresh vegetables...

  • Win A Temple Touch Thermometer!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kristi! The types of thermometers out there are big and everyone has their favorite. Growing up we just used the old mercury ones and I was glad to see them phased out. When we were expecting a baby we considered various ones but finally went with a regular digital one.

  • Win Potato Head Trick-O-Tater Plus Bag of Halloween Play-Doh!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Meredith! In my home with a 4 year old and a 2 year old there are few toys which can appease both ages and still allow them to play in the complexity of their levels.

  • Is It Halloween Yet?
    Tweet Recently I saw an opportunity to review some costumes and I was taken aback, it was August. I normally have no concept of what day it is but was I really that out of touch? Flashbacks to last year and I recall how the good costumes get taken. Anyway I managed to get a wonderful witch costume (part of their Simply Spooky line) from the Princess Time Toys online...

  • Just Follow Dora!
    Tweet Recently we hosted a Halloween Party at our home and it was with much excitement that Miss J got to sport her Dora The Explorer costume. I spied a little costumed boy following Miss J around. It happened that she was not the only die-hard fan of Dora (excluding Miss B who also has the Dora bug) at the party. His mom noticed this too and confessed that her son...

  • Oh Scooby Doo! How Could You?
    Tweet I had high hopes that this year Halloween was going to be more fun the last one since Miss J was 3 years old and chose her own costume (Dora The Explorer). We got to a local party held by the town excited as there were going to be a few characters there, including Dora The Explorer. I was really hoping that the character would be small as I was worried how intimidating...

  • It’s Pumpkin Time!
    Tweet With October comes pumpkin time. With Halloween, Diwali and our birthdays (yes, my husband and I share the same birthday, freaky, I know) in October this is certainly one of my favorite months. We decided to kickstart the month with a visit to Wilson Farms. It was already a busy day with swimming classes for Jia and Field Hockey Coaching by Ramesh, but there was...
