Happy Halloween! Mike and I took Lily out during daylight. Then after half an hour we came home and handed out candy to about 100 kids. Lily was dressed up as a unicorn (or as one visitor corrected, she was in fact a Pegasus because she had wings!).

She has A LOT of fun handing out candy at the front door when we got home. We saw a neighbour who set up the baby gate at the front door and just kept the door open. IT was perfect for us. Lily got to feel as though she was outside with all the other kids and yet we were at home!

What a great weekend! We spent time in Angus this weekend to celebrate Connie's 28th and Liz's 32nd birthdays. On Saturday we went with Connie's family to the pumpkin patch. It was a lot of fun :-) We got to weigh Lily - 27 lbs! The photo of her bent over the photo is her 'hugging' it! The lady in pink is Liz at 36 weeks pregnant. She is due November 21st. The consensus is that as this is her fifth child, she's likely not going to go past the 15th of November!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! PPS

Happy October :-) Here are some updated photos. The photos of Lily in pink pjs is from when she turned 14 months on the 2nd. She LOVES her books! She really likes the ChickaChika Boom Boom book. I think it has more to do with how Mike acts it out then th estory, but who knows ;-) The spider is a our new house pet, Henri, fear not, Henri lives on the outside of our window! The food spread is from Thanksgiving last weekend, it was splendid! Leeat (of course) out did herself with the moutwatering cornish hens! There is a photo of Lily enjoyed part of her meal, her cucumber. It was 30 degrees celcius on Monday, it was SOO hot! So we did all the cooking at Leeat's house, then walked it across the courtyard and ate it here, where the oven was never turned on! The before and after picture of Lily and the egg is from our trip to Peterborough. She has found a new favourite food. However, by her third hardboiled egg, I think she was beginning to feel its effects:-) She's looking kinda mellow :-)

We finally unpacked our final boxes this past weekend and we have art and photos on the walls! It only took us two months, but darn it we're unpacked! The only things left are now to get my craft room organized and the clean up our den. I had to go out clothes shopping for Lily as she's getting huge on us and is in a size 4 shoe. Still a size 24 mth torso and 18 month leg. Makes buying a winter snow suite impossible!

All is good here in London, ON :-) PPS
