A sppppoooookkkkky Halloween, with a TON of kids this year!! We broke all records with over 300 trick or treaters coming to the door. If this is a new trend, I better start buying now for next year!!

We had five pumpkins this year, all so I could roast seeds. I love seeds.

On Saturday, Bridget and Charlotte came over where we all made haunted houses from graham wafers. I told them they had to fit as much candy on them as possible, something a 7,6,5 and 4 year old had no problem with!!

While the original plan was for a pirate and Darth Maul to leave my house....the plans were changed on Friday afternoon. So a last minute kitty costume and an easy to put together hockey player and we were set for the night.

A fun night for all, with lots and lots of candy back at the house. I wonder how long it will last?

The pumpkin patch

If I am being honest, I go to the pumpkin patch for one thing. And it's not for the pumpkins. It's for the photos. I took well over 100.

I love the warm fall colours, and the kids love the excitement of picking out their own pumpkin. With a small window in the weather, the kids and I, along with Nicki and her family headed out to Richmond to the pumpkin patch.

The photos are my record of a great day, and this was a great one.

Girl Time

A rain wet weekend. And then, a small break with the weather. I needed to get outside. I needed fresh air.

I needed to get out of the walls of my house. I asked everyone if they were interested in a hike at the hatchery. I only got one taker.

So us girls headed out. We were greeted by a rainbow.

Some fish.

And some spiders.

She is just so cute, I love hanging out with just us.

We will come back, again and again.
Oh, I cannot leave without posting this photo. This is true K J spirit!
