The boys are soooooooo excited about Halloween. I don't think Sam quite knows what he is getting himself in for but I am sure he will enjoy being all dressed up. I don't think we will visit many houses. I would like to keep the candy to a minimum. I usually end up throwing most of it out anyway. The boys are so used to not having it that a couple of pieces is enough.
One great thing I feel I have achieved is getting the Canadian family christmas presents organised. What a relief and I was able to stick to budget this year which is great.

We are trying to get some renovations finished around here before we leave. I am pulling the wall paper of the walls in the ensuite. It certainly isn't the most desirable job in the world, however I can already see how much better it is going to look. Kevin is working on painting the hall next and finishing all the brown doors. I will be so happy to see the last of the horrible mission brown doors. It trule is amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do.
The colours outside the window really warm my heart. I think fall is my favourite time of year and reminds me again, I am happy to have chosen Canada for our home. The seasons are so inspiring and the changes are a good reminder that things never stay the same.
I am only 4 squares away from finishing my first ever throw rug. It is such an amazing feeling to finish this project and to know I created it myself. I am thinking it will make a perfect gift for a special somone in my family for Christmas. There is a lot of love woven in the wool, what better gift can you ask for than that?
