Obsessed with: monogrammed jack-o-lantern

Yesterday we were invited to a Halloween play date.  I wasn't sure what to bring and didn't want to show up empty-handed.  In the middle of the night, it came to me.

A monogrammed jack-o-lantern.  I am sure I didn't come up with this idea but it is certainly a cute one.
And so easy... I was able to whip it up without having to run an errand, since it is pumpkin season, we had one by the back door.

The host was obsessed.

Organizational tip: multitasking for five

I have been a mom to three children under the age of four for about 12 days.  
Something I have already realized is the importance of multitasking.

On Thursday, I nursed Henry while in the pedicure chair at the nail salon; I have found that bath time is a perfect time to fold laundry; and I rarely use the computer (hence the lack of blog posts) as it is much easier to use my phone or Ipad for quick emails, etc.

Spending time with Charlie and Tessa is something that is still a huge important priority, and I try to spend time with them alone and just the two of them whenever I can.  This afternoon Henry was taking a long nap in his cradle, and the house was quiet.  So Charlie, Tessa and I made dinner.  Together we made pizza and meatballs.  We had fun mixing the ingredients, sprinkling on the cheese, and counting the meatballs.

This was so much fun, because we spent time together, and made dinner all at the same time!
