What a busy day today!
The kids all enjoyed their snack today -
Worms & Dirtcakes and Moldy Fingers!
Next was followed up by the semi-final
It was a little bit cold!
Bethlehem vs. Holy Cross.
Unfortunately the Stars lost but they should be
proud of a very amazing season.
This was the best that the senior football team has done
since the school opened.
Congratulations on a great season boys!
And finally we got home,
Ashley got ready and,
as if planned,
her friends showed up!
She went out trick or treating for about an hour.
That, in a nutshell,
was our Halloween.
I hope you all had as much fun as we did!
It's getting hard to get Zach and Ashley
home at the same time
and long enough to accomplish anything,
let alone carving pumpkins!
They got them done
so now we are ready for tomorrow.
Do you love the very detailed
pumpkin Zach carved?
You should have heard him laughing
when he made the decision!
once again kids!
Team Turner played very well today.
The game ended in a tie
and this end in particular had us all
on the edge of our seats!
That yellow stone stayed right there
on the button for quite awhile.
It did eventually get taken out and the other team
did end up scoring 3 to tie it up.
The boys are playing in a qualifying spiel
They have a good shot at getting a great spot
at Northern's this year.
Good Luck boys!
It's a little late but it was still very good.
We finally had a chance to have our
Thanksgiving dinner tonight.
We had turkey, stuffing, potatoes,
fresh cranberries, gravy
and of course....
Before we ate we each had a chance to say
what we were most thankful for.
The one thing that came up most was
Without family we don't have much.
(Unless you ask Zach, we have pumpkin pie
so we have it all!)
Happy belated Thanksgiving!
Both kids were busy this evening.
Zachary had a football game,
The Stars won 35-25!
It was snowing quite a bit and
it was a very good football game.
Semi Finals are on
Ashley had her Halloween dance
tonight as well.
She dressed up as
"Boo" from Monsters Inc.
She was "Boo" when she was 2
since Monsters Inc was her
She decided that she needed to revisit that
costume again this year.
Another great Friday night,
I realize that these photos are not
from today but, to tell you the truth,
I really didn't have time to think
about a photo for today.
I have been editing the photos from my brother's
wedding and would really like to get them done so they
can stop waiting.
Here are some that I have done today...
I would also like to thank Julie Cortens
for trying to help me figure out
some impossible corrections.
For the most part,
I am 99.5% happy with the photos I
Now I just have to wait and see what David & Lindsay think!
We bought a 20lb box of
apples from the market on Saturday.
They were a really good price.
Today I made apple butter.
I make it in my slow cooker and it takes about 14 hours
but it is so worth the wait!
I think I will go and get more apples
next Saturday so I can get some pies in the
Steve and I actually had a few hours
by ourselves today!
We took advantage of the situation
and went to the Farmer's Market for breakfast.
It was a beautiful day
and we ended up coming home with some
pretty awesome stuff.
One of the vendor's had a
Beets, Carrots, Onions & Potatoes.
we got it and made stew!
20lbs of apples for apple butter and pie,
honey, fresh salsa
and a bag of
Seabuckthorn Tea Leaves
made it home with us as well.
It was a great date!
My baby brother married a wonderful lady
and our family couldn't be
more happy for them both!
I had a great time taking their photos all day
and I am 100% exhausted!
I couldn't choose just 1 photo today
because I wanted to share a few
of my favourites with you.
These boys are so awesome!
I have had them in my daycare for the past 9 years,
they are part of my family.
Today Adrianna was playing with the
vanity and she wanted to put
lipstick on the boys.
They both let her climb all over them
and apply the lipstick!
Thank goodness it's just pretend!
