Three more days!

Wow! Hard to believe that Halloween is just about knocking on my door once again. It's been a rough month here but I have managed to get costumes for my kids ready but alas...despite my plans for making my costume...I was unable to get what I needed to create it. *sigh* Ah well! Perhaps I can spend the next year getting it ready. *fingers crossed*
But since I love dressing up I will have to think of something that I will be able to throw together between now and then. *scratches head and ponders*
The forecast has called for showers but not enough to discourage the trick-or-treaters this year. They say we should only get 1 mm of rain. If so then hopefully by the time the darkness has decended upon our fair city the skies will be clear.
My youngest is going as a pink poodle, my daughter will be Hannah Montana so I will have to get her hair ready the night before. Her hair is long and blonde so I don't have to get her a wig. :D My son is wearing a black robe with a skull mask and carrying a double-bladed axe.
For the first time, their school is allowing the kids to dress up and have a little party in the afternoon on Friday. Usually they only let the kindergardeners dress up. The condition is of course that they can't have any gore or weapons as part of their violence so my son will have to keep his axe at home. But on Halloween night of course is a different story.
Friday or Saturday we will be carving our four pumpkins and roasting the seeds. Last year we tried roasting the seeds from the white pumpkin and they were terrible. So never again will I roast the seeds from a white pumpkin but we will still carve them. :D I also have several pages printed out of colouring pages and puzzles that the kids can do and we will be watching some Halloween DVD's that are appropriate for the young ones.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow crazy Cannucks! :D I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. We always have our dinner on Sunday instead of Monday so right now the turkey is in the oven and smelling wonderful, the deviled eggs are done and with the pumpkin pie are chilling. Soon I will be making the stuffing and peeling potatoes. My son keeps coming downstairs and he takes a big breath and sighs telling me how good the turkey smells. LOL! I love it when the whole house is filled with the aroma of the turkey cooking. Try not to stuff yourself too much! :D
