Baking, Birthdays and More... October 28,29 & 30th, 2009

All is well in our world. Now that we are becoming a little more settled we are finding a normal pattern during our days. Sam & I got right to business the other day making Pumpkin Pound cake it turned out very well. Sam gobbled up his piece as soon as it was cool enough to cut. So we have officially christened our kitchen. The following morning brought a birthday for myself. I was overwhelmed with birthday emails throughout the day. Sam & I managed to get out and run a few errands after our morning of pumpkin pancakes and a latte for me of coarse. We split a late afternoon lunch at A&W with a baby burger each! Yum! The evening was followed with a visit from my lovely sister in law Donna, Brandon and Mom & Dad J. They came bearing well wishes, cake & ice cream. Darren finally returned that evening with more Bday wishes.
The following day found us attempting to convince Sam to don one of his Halloween costumes for Party Day at school. At the last minute we compromised on a Superman shirt and cape! Choose your battles hey! So we were entertained by Sam and his classmates displaying the songs and knowledge learned for the month of October. It was lovely and quite cute.
Hope this finds you and your gobblins enjoying a great evening!

2. In a large, beat the egg for 30 sec. Add yogurt, pumpkin puree beat well.

Our days have been filled with many activities from unpacking and getting sorted. Sam attending preschool, Darren going to and from work, and just plain or everyday activities. And just for fun my car decided to have some major issues and is at the shop as I type. Oh well that is life!
So here are a few pictures from a walk in the park yesterday when the sun came out, Sam sleeping while we waited for the tow truck,one from an afternoon of building towers and the last two pictures are from Sam's school preschool we were at a local garden learning about our surroundings.
Hope this finds you and yours enjoying fall.

Fishin' with the kids October 4,2009

We recieved a call form Dave this morning asking if Sam would like to come fishing with the kids in the afternoon. And of coarse we said yes. Due to the fact all of our belongings in storage we clarified that there would be enough fishing rods to go around. We headed out a bit early so Bronwynne could have a run around before being on her leash for the remainder of the outing. It was a beautiful day and the kids really enjoyed being able to reel the line in nothing was caught but good time and enjoyment.
