Holistic Halloween Party

I feel so fortunate to have found the Holistic Moms Network in NJ.  Before moving from Seattle to NJ I looked for groups that were accepting of families that practiced attachment parenting, babywearing, extended breastfeeding, vegetarianism, and other not-so-mainstream ways of living and raising a child.   I searched my hippy-mom websites and found the Holistic Moms.  Was I really Holistic?  And was I holistic enough to join a holistic moms group?  I have to admit that it was a little bit out of desperation to make friends that I joined the Holistic Moms Network and funny enough almost 2 years later I am one of four co-leaders for the group.

The group has so many great events and recently we had a Holistic Halloween Party at a local park.  It couldn't have been more perfect.  The weather was beyond exception, the leaves on the trees were bright with color, and the ground was covered with leaves.

Story Time!  You probably recognize our boy from the back and also Fraser.  Quinn's little buddy, Teddy, is on the far left dressed as Little Red Riding Hood.  The base of the costume is a devil's outfit that his father wore as a boy.   Needless to say, he's a very imaginative little boy.
This little red-headed cutie is Alec is the son of a friend also named Amy.   

(Alec and Amy were at Quinn's 2nd bday party looking like this - how quickly they grow.)

It was a fantastic day and I always enjoy spending time with my holistic mama friends.
