Halloween 2008 and the First Snow!

The past couple of weeks have been Halloween oriented for sure. In getting ready for the spooky season, Pam, Georgia and I paid a visit to Cannamore Orchards to ride on the Spooky Wagon Ride and to get the pants scared off of us in the Haunted House and Haunted Village they have there! I must say the wagon ride was a little cheesy, but the haunted house was very scary!! Between guys jumping out of the walls, guys jumping out of the ceilings with power tools whirring and guys hiding in the floor with scary masks growling at us, The three of us were terrified and came out of there hoarse because of all the bloodcurdling screams! But all in all a lot of fun :)

Wednesday Oct 28 marked the first snow fall for this winter, with 15cm of the fluffly white stuff on the ground it was hilarious watching Primer try to figure it out. It was his first encounter with snow and was a little unsure at first, but once he was outside we could not for the life of us bring him back inside, he ran himself senseless in the backyard, rolling and digging in it and having a marvellous time!

Halloween itself was on a Friday this year which was great because it meant I wasn't working the night shift so could give out candy to all the Trick or Treaters! I took full advantage of the holiday by putting up a few decorations, making Jack-O-Lantern cupcakes and carving a huge pumpkin. In the morning I paid a visit to my good friend Jenna's where her, Joshua, Zachary and I made some yummy Halloween treats and carved a pumpkin! Primer joined in the festivities by dressing up as Kung Fu Panda. We had to cut the legs off his costume so that it would fit him just like a big hoodie sweater. Once it was on, he wasn't all that bothered which was great! He looked so cute and everyone who came to the door loved his little outfit.

This weekend also is the beginning of the our house renovation plans. Bright and early and back-O and bulldozer arrived to start digging the new foundation which will eventually house our new basement! It's taken a long time, but we're finally starting and with any luck, by Christmas, we'll have the house all done.
