It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be here next week! I always get sentimental this time of year. I reflect, count my blessings, show gratitude, and express thanks for the happiness that my family brings to my life. I also try my best to instill a sense of gratitude in my children. I want them to grow up to be responsible, caring, and thankful citizens when they venture out into the world.
What better way to instill gratefulness in your children than by a doing a gratitude project with your little ones. I just love this cute, colorful, simple and playful craft project – the Gratitude Turkey.

The holidays will be here before you know it! In the past, during this joyous time of year, folks spread holiday cheer by sending basic, decorative cards by mail. They were rarely personalized, and did not consist of adorable collages of family photos, depicting growing kids grinning from ear to ear. Thanks to today’s technology, many families send personalized holiday photo cards to family, friends and loved ones. This is a great use of available modern tools – by sending something that is in itself a gift to loving friends and family.
Here at Le Top, we offer a wonderful assortment of holiday outfits, which make perfect ensembles for photo cards. In each collection, we offer a variety of silhouettes and sizes, which are ideal for family photos. Le Top creates whimsical ‘brother – sister’ and ‘big brother – little brother’ and ‘big sister – little sister’ looks. These outfits make perfect photos – then perfect comfy clothing to wear on the big day! Here are some of my personal recommendations.

Every kid I know LOVES Halloween. What’s not to like? Children (and grownups) get to channel anyone they want for one entire day – and they are only limited by their imaginations! And going from door to door collecting candies and treats. How cool is that???
Every Halloween our family heads home after a few hours of lively trick-or-treating. The kids then move on to the most exciting part – to check out and compare their treats. My kids pour out their candies on the floor and go through their booty, while I inspect for opened candies, etc.
