Annnnddddd now we are onto October… and October of 2015 was a doozy. Not only did we have Halloween to contend with (and 5 costumes of which were all somewhat handmade), but a very important wedding. It is not every day you get to be in a THEMED wedding in a park for a friend who is more a sister to you than pretty much anyone on the planet. AND see her looking gorgeous and feel rather pretty yourself to boot. HERE
Halloween this year was the year of all handmade… each and every costume had at least a touch of our personal handy work on it. HERE.
Echo and zombie (?) Alex
October is also Ken’s birthday and Canadian Thanksgiving… both of which we celebrate.
There is the usual, swim lessons at the YMCA thanks to Nana and Baba… and Home Depot…
Homeschool, of course… when are we not learning something new…
October just happens to be the month when the trees in our backyard look their finest. And then when the ground looks its most amazing. I could not resist a full on photo shoot of everyone and everything. You can see the rest of the leaf pictures HERE.
We really had a crafty and active month.
As well as some time with games indoors…
Working on our spelling
With company as well…
Fun with Scouts…
And Sunday School of course!
I have to admit, I love October more when we are in Minnesota… the colours here are so… amazing!!!
Top it off with random images and what a great month!
Well I am clearing up my emails as I work on the blog, sewing and school… so what do I come across but my emails to myself about Thanksgiving! And Remembrance Day to boot! Well I figured I might as well share the helpful links here. If nothing else, the next time I search Thanksgiving or Remembrance Day here on the blog to find useful resources I will be in luck!
