I love this month.
I have made it to another Treacherous Tea with my mom, and we took the kids for the somewhat macabre scavenger hunt at our local museum. Nothing like getting the kids to eat kitty litter cake after finding items like "Crazy Clara", the "Death Beatle", and "Raggety Angry".
We made it out to the Corn Maze, carved pumpkins with some family a week or so back, and our cemetary is standing once again on the front lawn.
We aren't going to check out a pumpkin patch (figured the corn maze and their outdoor activities fits that bill) and we didn't make it for our annual grave tours in Fort Langley (which I did miss).
I always think of my friend Kelz this month (from Oz). After our first fall together, I must say that I appreciate the changing leaves more than I ever did before - all the spectacular colours.
We also had great Thanksgiving dinners with family, and one of my oldest and dearest friends made it up here for a long lost visit. It was amazing to get the chance to reconnect.
All in all, a great month... except the nasty cold and ear infection that came around...
I am really looking forward to Halloween on Friday - it should be a crazy night with lots of kids, especially if it doesn't rain. I am also looking forward to November, and our usual week off and trek to Seattle. Fingers crossed, we may make a few trips!
It is hard to believe Christmas is less than two months away. The time is truly flying. I am thinking of trying to do more, and less at the same time. The kids are quickly reaching that saturation point, and it is not just about more things...
