Happy Hallowe'en

Despite snowing overnight and early on Hallowe'en day the day turned out fairly well. It was dry-ish by nightfall, and while it was certainly cold it wasn't snowsuit weather. Still, the kids didn't even do an entire block before they were tired and begging to go home (of course, being in a rural village our 'blocks' are fairly large). in total we were out about 45 minutes, and the bits each received a fairly good sized pile of candy.

Eligible bachelor...

He looked at himself in the bathroom mirror and said "I'm so handsome, everybody would want to marry me". I think he's inheirited my sense of humour...

The exciting milestones are so much more bittersweet with the last child.

Wookie lost his other top front tooth. In a few weeks he's going to have a pair of giant chicklet teeth, and probably will look way older. As exciting as it is to watch him grow, it also makes me sad, he's my last baby.

Picture Day 2010

They're not all that 'fancied up', but it was raining (AS USUAL!) and it was also pizza day (brilliant planning that). K tells me that they took pictures of the sibling sets together, in addition to the typical school pictures. Should be interesting to see the proofs...

Girl Guide cookies

It's that time of year again...

(I am a bit miffed though, it was the friggin' FIRST meeting of the year and already they have us shilling cookies. Ridiculous. So far we've had to help the kids sell 3 boxes of chocolate bars, scout popcorn, apples and now cookies, and it's only October 6th. Going to be a loooooong year...)

Frog stack

Some little friends we fished out of the pool. The two big ones were stuck together like that in the pool, while being fished out and in the bucket, guy has a good grip. Michele thought it'd be funny to put the little guy on top - middle frog was NOT pleased by that and chirped loudly to complain, eventually bucking the little one off.

(What can I say, we're easily amused)

Candy Corn

Ready for October (thanks for Aunty Elizabeth, and Target - why are there no Targets in Canada???)
