We almost didn't get it out by December 1st. Dave went out that day to pull it from the storage unit. There are still no Christmas lights on our house. Dave insists that they still go up, but I told him not to bother. It is just one more thing to put up and one more thing that needs to be taken down before we move. There is already too much to do. We got the tree up though!

Last week I made my first ever Gingerbread House! I have been wanting a mold for a long time, but the one I had been eying was pricey. I wasn't sure how sturdy the house would be either so I hesitated to pay a lot for one. I found a silicone pan at Dollarama this year for $3. I scooped it up and gave it a try. It worked perfectly! I was so excited. But the girls were even more excited when they came home to a large array of Bulk Barn treats to decorate the house with. I look forward to using this pan year after year. I have a hideous amount of "kitchen stuff" and I sometimes think to myself "do I really need this junk?" because some of it I so rarely use, but this one will be worth the little space it takes up.

After a busy Fall, I have decided to give myself a "vacation." This means no pay, doing lots and lots of laundry, cooking, cleaning, and packing, packing, packing....Oh, and Christmas shopping. I also will be taking some time to catch up on photographing my children. We went out after school tonight to take photos for the teachers' cards. (I'm leaving Reese's out of this, just because it has the teacher's name on it.) This is NOT Zoe's teacher's actual name, in case anyone was wondering. ;)

Tonight is the start of our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend! I am excited and have lots planned. The morning didn't start out well, with one little girl insistent on wearing the same grubby sweatpants that she has worn for the last 3 days (and her Sparks t-shirt). But she went up and changed, and now it's onward and upward (I hope).
Some funny pics of my girlies from September. (I'm a bit behind. Ha)

It's my favourite season. Sadly, these are some of the only fall photos I've taken of my girls this year. It's not just about time, but that maybe I don't want a bunch of photos of my youngest in sweatpants and dirty shirts, which is current favourite attire. But they were SUPER cooperative for these photos. (It's the magic of Starbucks. ;) )
