Happy Halloween!

We are all set for Halloween.  We'll be spending the evening with Tina and the kids.  Tina and I are both flying solo so we will take the girls Trick or Treating and my mom will hand out candy.  It will be fast and furious in Ferris. 
Summer is 'Jane' from Jane and the Dragon

Summer, Gramma and Don headed to the bowling alley for a rainy day activity.  Summer is having a few extra days home to spend with Don. 

Summer has played a lot of bowling on the Wii, but has not put it into practical use for quite some time. 

The results were interesting:  Daddy: Rusty, Gramma: Dismal, Summer: Passable!  Looks like practice is needed all around.

This seemed to be the best position

Quick Catch-Up!

It has been a very busy September and beginning of October!  So here is what we have been up to:

Summer has been doing her dance classes on Wednesday evenings.  She loves it.  Her teacher Renee even mentioned to me that she sees a huge improvement in Summer's movement's since May.  I know, she is not a therapist - but her career is based around movement - so I will take it!

Gramma arrived on September 30th.  Summer and I picked her up in Toronto and also had a quick visit with Barb & Laurie - always a treat.  Gramma is here until November 3rd. We are keeping her busy.

Don arrived home from Val Cartier on October 3rd after eight weeks of training.  We were all happy to see him and have him home for a few weeks - Especially Summer.

We spent Thanksgiving in Toronto, hosted by Graeme & Sara in their beautiful new century home.  Only 26 of us for dinner - the clan has grown...  Much fun was had by all, and we all agreed how fortunate we are and that we all have a lot to be thankful for. We retired to Barb & Laurie's for the overnight, and headed north on Monday.

It is one of my busiest times of the year at work and October seems to just fly by.  The beautiful fall colours always seem to come and go so fast and they are forecasting a skiff of snow on Thursday. (My mom is thrilled with that... lol).
