Halloween Wrap up.

Trying to take chips from her big sister's pile, LOL..

Can you believe how much candy is on our kitchen table, happy girls.
Half of their stash is donated to our local Women's shelter, courtesy of Superman's company.

The Munsters, nice family photo, think we should use this shot as our Xmas card, LOL...

Off we go...

Cute little witch.


Carving out our pumpkins.
Pumpkin goo, yuk!!!!

Jillian enjoyed scooping out the pumpkins, love the feel of the slime, had it everywhere.
Hope you had a safe Halloween, full of treats and no tricks, wink...

Happy Hauntings tonight!!

We are geared up for tonight, the girls are so excited!!
When Puddin' Pop gets home from school we will carve pumpkins and decorate outside.
They will get dressed in their costumes and start going door to door and hopefully in their beds by 9pm.
I am sure they will full of candy so bedtime should be fun, LOL.
Hope you have a safe and fun Halloween.

Snow on the pumpkins!!!!

My morning started at 4 a.m., I awoke to blood curdling screams from two terrified little girls.
A catastrophe had occurred, someone(a ghost they claim) had turned out their flower nightlight.
I shook myself out of a nice slumber(Superman was working nights, it was my turn,LOL)hurried into their room to discover the hydro had gone out. Having a hubby in the business he has us prepared for such events, I ran to the cupboard grabbed the crank flashlights and lanterns. I put the lantern in the girls room, stumbled back into bed thinking I could pull the covers up and get a couple more hours, wrong!!
Just as I snuggled back into my warm spot, lights began flashing around the house!!! The girls started screaming, they said the house was haunted(too much Halloween you think???). The utilities truck was outside the front of our home troubleshooting the line problem with a huge spotlight. I instructed the girls to look out their window to see what the light was, thinking they would settle down and Momma bear could get back to her den. Wrong again, now they sat up taking in the sights of two men fixing the lines. I told them to get back to bed school would be here before we knew it.
We got up to the sound of Superman opening the deadbolt on the back door, the girls rushed to tell Daddy their story, after he listened he told them to look out the kitchen window.
More screams, this time with excitement!!
Yes, the root of the problem, SNOW!!!! It was heavy and causing havoc, Superman had a terrible night at work, he was so busy with outages, he is now sleeping like a baby.
I am here watching the snow melting on the pumpkins....

Congrats Puddin'.

Last evening was Puddin' Pops Sparks enrollment ceremony, she received her second year badge and pin. She also was a presenter and had to introduce some of her first year Spark friends, she did such a great job.
I was so proud of her, she stood in front of an audience, spoke loudly, clearly and with such confidence!
Nice work Sweetie girl, congrats.
Love Mommy, Daddy and Mie-Mie.

It's in the bag, garbage bag that is...

The monkeys are going as witches this Halloween, I found a great pattern for their outfits, it's made from garbage bags!!How cool is that, they can bundle up underneath the costume and stay dry, as far as cost, you can't get any cheaper!

Ready for round 3..

Conversation I had with Jilly-bean last night while cooking dinner.
"Mom, I am a far"
"Yes, Jillian, you are a star"
In Jill's class, they use symbols and their name for marking their cubicle, cubby, desk and personal articles. It makes for easy identification. The teacher gave Jill a star so she could practice her "S" sound, we are still having some difficulty with the pronunciation.
The conversation continued..
"Mom, could I have a $ucker(we have some left from the Thanksgiving parade)?"
"No, not right now, we are going to have dinner soon"
"Why Mom, I want a $ucker(I'm shaking my head no), hmm, Mom your a real finker!!"
Jillian leaves the room angry, I'm doubled over laughing!!

Yes, we are ready for round 3, hope the speech therapist meets with us soon!!
Can't wait until our "S"' is no longer an "F"....

Dare not go there..

I have told myself that I would dare not to go there, politics and religion would not be discussed on my blog, well ,a woman can change her mind.
Look at the above picture, our Prime Minister. Newly elected, Progressive Conservative minority government, can you say Deja vu, yeesh....
In the Presidential debate last evening there was mention of "Joe the plumber" 25 times, maybe he should be a candidate...

The above was not meant to offend, please don't send me mean old mail, wink...

Until next Spring...

Goodbye until next Spring, the cottage is almost ready for closing, Superman and friends will go up once more and then it will be closed up until the Spring.
The closing always reminds me that cold days are ahead and so is the white stuff(did I really just type that, LOL).
