Happy Thanksgiving-2011

I love Thanksgiving for so many reasons, but mainly because our little family gathers together to celebrate. The one thing that I'll always remember is that smell from the turkey being roasted in the oven. It's funny that my sister who now lives in her own place, came to sleep over at our house just to wake up to that delicious aroma. I hope those of you in the USA had a very happy and healthy THANKSGIVING . Here a few pictures from our home, enjoy!

The center of attention YUM YUM!

Family and Friends

Take care and be well,

Happy "SNOWeen"-Halloween -2011

What an interesting weekend it was...the threat of snow felt way off. Maybe the forecast would change, but it didn't!. We had plans for our annual Pumpkin Carving Party on Saturday. We woke up to an overcast day, but as the hours ticked it started raining, then the flakes started falling. By midday it became evident we were in the middle of a very unusual storm for this time of year. Since the leaves haven't fallen off yet, the branches became so heavy with the snow, they started breaking off, bringing down any utility wires in their path...then the widespread power outages. We had phone service for a few hours on Saturday, but lost that too. Most of our friends who were supposed to come over to our house for the party couldn't make it, what a bummer. We had our party anyway with my in-laws and our neighbors. It was very challenging carving pumpkins by candlelight, but we did it!

On Friday, I took two my kids to a local pumpkin patch:

Looking for the perfect pumpkin

 On Saturday, let the pumpkin carving begin:

We had a great time, family, good friends, great foods, lots of laughter...we'll remember this day forever.

On Monday (Halloween), we woke up to this:

Once the fog lifted, this is what I captured with my camera:

Later, it was trick-or-treating time:

Needless to say, it was very chilly, there weren't too many kids out, but the kids had fun. At least we were able to go out.

Thanks for stopping by and take care.
Enjoy each day, no matter what it brings your way!
