My Dishwashing Companion........

I usually don't get around to doing my dishes until 9 or 10 o'clock at night, and lately I've had a little visitor outside my kitchen window. I thought that this would be a fitting post for today, when all the spooky things come out to haunt us! Now I know this picture does not do him justice, but he is honestly about the size of a twooonie! (And for my American friends out there, that's about a silver dollar!) Anyways, I feel safely fascinated by him because he's on the other side of two layers of glass, but I don't think I'd feel quite the same if I ran into him in my kitchen!

Emberly the ballerina princess is off livin' it up at the Kindergarten party this morning! Gavin and I got to go take pictures for a bit this morning and he was thrilled! We saw a little Shrek, Superwoman, two ninja turtles, a butterfly, a skunk, and many others. I promise a good collection of Halloween pictures after the day's festivities. Enjoy your pumpkin day!

Carving........


We're getting ready for the big day tomorrow! There'll be lots of tricks and treats around here, and a little ballerina princess and a dinosaur. Tonight we carved up the pumpkin that's been our centerpiece for a month, and G feasted on some delicious raw pumpkin guts, yum! The seeds are roasting in the oven right now and I'm trying to convince my ballerina princess that the sooner she goes to bed, the sooner the Kindergarten Halloween party will come. Hmmm, I guess I'd better go get my little ones off to sleep. Haunted dreams everyone!

Blog Action Day.......Cloth!!!



Okay, in honour of the topic of Blog Action Day, the environment, I thought I'd share a little cloth diaper love with ya! My babies have both worn almost exclusively cloth except for the occasional pack of sposies. I have to say, I really love them! Wouln't you rather wear soft velour, hemp, flannel, and wool than plasticky, papery, gel beady throw-aways? Cloth can be super simple, much more than most people realize. And there's something so satisfying about stacking up a pile of freshly laundered diapers, ready for the next go-around!

Being Thankful......

I know I'm a bit behind, but Megan the procrastinator has had a camera with dead batteries for the last couple of weeks and I keep puting off posting until I have some current pictures. Anyways, lame excuse, I know, but the batteries are in the charger right now, and I found a
beautiful farm picture in my files to share. We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving over the weekend with the family and enjoyed visiting with everyone on the farm. We also heard some great uplifting words from the general authorities. So for myself, I know I left the weekend thankful for my many blessings and resolved to be a better mom and altogether a better person. I hope your week has been just as good!
