October was a fun month for us! It was full of birthday’s, the pumpkin patch, fun with family, and the weather in Arizona finally being slightly more bearable. With all of that, we definitely have a fun list of October Family Favorites to share.

A great list of October Family favorites from parents to kids of many ages. Awesome ideas to add to Christmas lists.

October Family Favorites

Me: I have been living in graphic tees. When I am not at my internship and just around the house, that’s all I ever wear! Some of my favs are below. You can find similar graphic tees here:  Women Eyelash and Lips Tee, Coffee and Wine Womens Relaxed T-Shirt , Golden Girls Squad Goals T-ShirtAlso, check out my list of the top places to shop online, which includes my favorites stores for graphic tees! My favorite wine this month has been anything Halloween themed. I love trying out specific wines that are around for each holiday. Check out this post for a full review of some fun Halloween wines. img_5950

Hubs: My hubby has also been into shoes, and this month I bought him a few new pairs that he is wearing out, including a pair of light gray suede shoes that he can wear with jeans or slacks. I love the color, and he likes that they are versatile. You can find a similar style below. His favorite beers this month have been from Goose Island and their seasonal pack.

4YO: Our Em was loving her Halloween costume pretty much the entire month. Aurora from Sleeping Beauty is her favorite Disney princess at the moment. I know that it will now forever be a part of her dress up routine and not just a Halloween costume, which is fine by me. I used to love dress up when I was younger. I think this Aurora Classic Disney Princess Sleeping Beauty Costume would be a perfect gift for Christmas as well.

3YO: It was our little G’s birthday this month, and her favorite was definitely “her freeze party”, aka, her Frozen Birthday party that I put together for her. She has been obsessed with all things Elsa, and so a Frozen party was the obvious choice. While she loved all of her gifts, some of her favorites are this Disney Frozen Elsa Tiara and Jewelry Set that she has not stopped wearing. She also loves this Disney Princess Mini-Figure Play Set, and both girls have been playing non-stop with that.

Twins: The twins have pretty much been loving getting into all of their sister’s toys… especially their Shopkins which is awesome… Otherwise, they have been loving starting to use strictly sippy cups instead of bottles. I shared this post last month on tips for weaning babies off of the bottle, and they have slowly but surely been working for us! These Tommee Tippee First Sips Transition Cups are great for new sippy cup users.

What are your October Family Favorites? Are you making your list of must-have items for the holiday season?

*Cheers to the end of Halloween, and the beginning of Thanksgiving month*
