So much to do in Northampton on Dec 31.  Check out the Official First Night web site.  Here you can download a program for the evening.  Looks like lots of fun things, especially early on for the little ones, and it looks like there will be fireworks at 6:15PM.  Have a safe and Happy New Year’s Eve!

Another amazing site from Down Under. Kiddley, run by one of my all time favorite bloggers, Claire of LoobyLu . This site has tons of ideas for you and your kids. I love the dress up a doll and paper ornament, it comes with cool pictures and best of all – you can download a doll if you don’t feel like you can draw one! This site is definitely worth browsing, especially on inside day.


shoes of choice

I found these hiking boots at the Clothing Exchange. They are super fab – and the Iz loves loves loves them. So much I can’t get her to wear any of her other shoes – see the lonely black suede sneakers with pink piping and stitching?

There are tons of items at the Clothing Exchange. Things for kids, including exersaucers, playpens, toys…shoes. clothes, winter hats and gloves, boots and shoes. There are also maternity items available too!

The Clothing Exchange is always accepting donations. The items must be clean, and free of tears, holes and stains. There is a spot for donations, and these will then be sorted into the appropriate size bins.
