October in pictures
Today is one of Maria’s favourite days! Halloween. It is not only the dressing up that makes her so excited but the candy, and to be more precise the unbelievable amount of sweets that she collects each year is what every sweet tooth is waiting for the whole year! To me today is one of my favourite days for a different reason! Today, as every month I go thru all the pictures from the last month in order to put together a mini album with some of the moments that happened in the past few weeks. The task was not easy today since we took over 500 pictures! I think I will have to start to create separate folders in order to sort it out.
Bryan’s hair is very thick and grows super fast. It needs to be cut once a month. For many years I’ve been cutting his hair and I have to say it was much easier when his hair was short
October was so beautiful so every possible moment we tried to spend outside
If it wasn’t for Mike we would not have turkey for the Thanksgiving ;)
The park around Maria is being revamped. The new washrooms are really fancy ;)
The trip to African Lion Safari was a great adventure! More pics here
at first Bryan was a little uneasy about the playground and Maria had to beg him to join her… after one slide he was all ready for more!
My parents took me mushroom picking for the first time when I was a very little girl and it was always one of my favourite activities. Now I am so happy to share this joyful time with Mike and the kids
we try to go mushroom picking at least once a season but this years’ very dry summer was not the best for mushrooms to grow
…and even if the basket is not full at the end of the day, the time spent together in the forest is priceless
Bryan outgrew his old gi so I had to stitch his badges on the new one. My fingers were hurting from poking the needle thru the thick materials. Then we learnt that one of the badges was sewed up side down! I had to go thru the pain again…
Love bookstores! Each of us can go in own direction and enjoy “the me time”
bringing a new book home is always very exciting to me… Mike knows that this is the time when he is in charge for making dinner :)!
this little mouse took my new pajama!
picking some decorations for Halloween!
and drifting away towards Christmas…
what is on Bryan’s Christmas list?
Maria’s Halloween costume was not ready yet so we were trying to get creative… I almost poked my eye!
Mike working on his masterpiece! Don’t you love it?
