One Happy Wonderland

The holidays are my favorite time of year! I love the season of giving, the smell of a Christmas Tree, fresh cookies out of the oven, holiday movies, and classic Christmas music playing throughout the house all through the month of December.

Most of the favorite childhood memories are filled with Christmas traditions and memories. Now as a parent, I want my daughter to experience those big moments to make her holiday season just as special! Some of our new family traditions include picking out a real Christmas tree as a family, the holiday light show at Macy’s, Franklin Square & Shadybrook Farms, and hosting Christmas Eve dinner with our extended family!

For 10 days, from December 1 – December 10, across stores nationwide, Gymboree will give wonder to the season by gifting their customers a holiday memory in the making. When customers visit in-store, they will receive a scratcher at checkout. The scratcher might inspire family game night with a Mattel Prize Pack of Uno, Apples to Apples and Pictionary plus $50 to for Gymmies to outfit the evening! Or perhaps, a gift basket of Mrs. Fields Cookies – sweet treats for Santa! Or, a mid-holiday shopping trip treat with a Free Auntie Anne’s Classic Pretzel. Two lucky customers will be treated to their next holiday vacation, with a Club Med all-inclusive family vacation. Every scratcher will reveal a special surprise, One Big Happy Wonderland!

Gymboree helped inspire this year’s visit to Franklin Square to see their holiday light spectacular! From Kennedy’s glitter boots to her winter white hat, I will always remember this holiday look. Kennedy looked like a white princess, sparkling as she walked thru the light show. Kennedy

Johnson’s Corner Farm

My sister & our daughters spent the afternoon at Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford, NJ! What a beautiful farm! There are so many activities to enjoy as a family…a playground, petting zoo, hayride, apple picking, pumpkin picking, eatery & more! We did everything!

Kennedy loved feeding the goats pieces of corn, and watching the ducks! I loved their sunflower field! It was picture perfect! We ended our trip with lunch & ice cream at their market before heading home. I can’t wait to go back…Johnson’s may be our new annual fall tradition!

 

Demarest Farms

Kennedy and I had a busy weekend  in North New Jersey at my cousins home. We celebrated her daughters 2nd birthday with family Sunday & spent the next morning pumpkin picking!

Demarest Farms is adorable!! We took a hayride to their pumpkin patch, which also had a playground, play houses & a petting zoo for the kids to enjoy!  Kennedy picked out a baby pumpkin to take home and mama tried to take lots of photos to capture the beautiful day! xo

Apple Picking

Happy Saturday! We spent the morning Apple picking at Styers Orchard. Kennedy had so much fun finding red apples and picking them from the trees!  We ended up with a bucket full of apples and I can’t wait to tackle some apple inspired recipes!

Our dresses are from Old Navy & sadly we didn’t get a chance to wear them all summer. I’m hoping Kennedy will fit into hers next season too. I need another opportunity for some cute matching mini me photos!   xo, S

 

 

Goodbye Summer

I can’t believe Labor Day Weekend has come & gone. This summer has seriously flown by, leaving me reminiscing of all the priceless memories we shared as a family together in Ocean City, NJ {my H A P P Y place}! One of my favorite beach weekends was shared with my Sister & her Daughter. Our father had purchased the girls matching seersucker blue dresses at our local children’s boutique, Bowfish Kids, and I’ve been dying to take photos of our girls in their matching outfits! Kennedy also just finished a mini-photoshoot with BowFish Kids which I’ll post about later on!

Here’s a few shots of the girls I took on the beach one early morning. I’m obsessed with these two beauties. Kennedy loves her baby cousin Charlie so much! Its the sweetest thing to watch them play with one another.

What do you think? My passion is Photography and I can’t wait to share more photos with you.

XO, Stephanie
