The things kids say . . .

Overheard in the van as we were driving yesterday (spoken by almost 7-year-old Austin):

"I wish I had black skin like Denver's. It's so much more creative. White skin is so boring!"

Ha! I love it.

Picture Post

This post doesn't need a lot of words. Just a bunch of pictures from a walk we went on last weekend with our photographer friend. It was a beautiful day and perfect weather for a family walk in the woods. The last four pictures are the ones I'm going to have developed in sepia for my four frames going up the stairs. I can't post the family picture because it's hopefully going out in our Christmas cards this year.

Field Trip

Don't you love it when you study something with the kids and then you get to go on a field trip to make it a little more real? This particular field trip was just next door but it was cool nonetheless. A few weeks ago, we learned all about bats and then lo and behold, a bat showed up on our neighbour's house. So out we went with our camera and binoculars and saw a real live bat up close! The kids loved it and of course I did too (mostly because it was on our neighbour's house and not ours!).

Isn't he cute?

Trick or Treat

Well our pictures didn't turn out that great but here they are anyway. We had Batman, Sharpay (from Highschool Musical) in her prom dress, an elephant and Tigger. They all looked really cute and despite the cold weather, a fun time was had by all! Denver was hilarious as usual. He wanted to walk the whole way and wanted nothing to do with even holding my hand. I was, however, allowed to hold his bag of goodies between houses! We drove to a few houses (including Grandma Z's) and then went to a few on our street. The kids aren't into all the halloween decorations and the scary aspect of halloween (obviously because their parents aren't!) and so when certain houses were too scary looking, they wanted nothing to do with it - even the older two. Thankfully no one had nightmares last night!
