We washed out our tie dye which I think we are starting to get the hang of.
We spent tons of time outside.
Trinity bashed her head open at the pool on the water slide stair railing. The YMCA was absolutely wonderful about cleaning it up and keeping her calm. And Ken and Trinity were total troopers at the hospital.
And the girls we playdate with at the YMCA were terrific about playing games instead of swimming until her head healed up enough.
Our friends down the road brought her get well soon Tim Bits!
We even made a trip out to a local dam. It was great fun to wander around and enjoy the water, the wildlife and the people watching. Walkabout Wednesdays.
We also met the Novaks’ new kitten Yoshi!
Don’t forget the crochet… here is something with a Canadian flavour – Tiger Ice Cream Cone!
Ok so total catch up before the 1st… not likely, but some posts… this I can do.
Well another Halloween is done and dusted. This year may have been the last one the twins trick or treat at. They are growing up so quickly!
Echo’s costume was a combination of a Ren in the Glen (Post to follow on that fun time) purchase, and a tail made by Ken from faux fur we picked up at Joann’s. Bam – an adorable unicorn.
Trinity went smart and asked for a Koala onesie she could then wear as pj’s.
Emanuel went classic as a pirate.
Zander and Gavin did a repeat on their wizard as they humored mom.
This year part of Zander and Gavin’s schooling is to plan the themed meals for Echo. They seem to lean on the side of deserts. We may need to discuss balance next!
We decorated jars for candles.
And of course the pets dressed up too…
We had a lovely light afternoon and then in the evening were off to the Novak’s to trick or treat with Aidan (Stan Lee). It was great fun and a huge haul!!
The whole group
Of course, the evening ended with the big parent candy sort.
Not bad for a Halloween that seemed to creep up on us. We only got the pumpkin carved 2 days before!!
I even dressed up… well sort of. I had bought an amazing hat from a local vender… Three Bears – Fun Fur Accessories HERE. Paired up with a few pieces I had on hand, Ken felt it was very… Russian Mail Order Bride… I felt is was deliciously warm. In fact, I ordered a special order matching Muff from the same woman!!!
