Okay...after all your kind comments,
I'm gonna give this another try...I think!

A quick picture of some awesome color I found in the garden this week!
With the sun shining on it, these hydrangea leaves were almost glowing.

And don't forget...
It's Ladies Night Out at Just Dandy Clothing...
tonight... from 6:30 until 9:30pm.
So get the kids tucked in bed early tonight and go check it out!!
Discounts, draws, refreshments...what more could you want?

Buy any one item at regular price and choose another item
of equal or lesser value for 1/2 price!
See you there!

It's been almost a week since I last posted...

Been thinking that this whole blog thing is getting 'old'...
Thinking that I should just call it quits...

Heard...not directly to me...that posting pictures of my kids is unwise...
Makes me question why I'm doing it...

Finding this time of year a lot harder to find things to share...
Especially because this time of year...kinda gets me a bit down...

Change it up a bit...don't post every day...or quit altogether...

In a slump...undecided...

Tell me what you think...
or just let me know you're reading...
And if you comment under 'Anonymous'...leave your name!

Pitter, patter - little feet running
Giggle, giggle - wicked little laugh
snip, Snip, SNIP - the sound of scissors!!!

This guy is a menace when it comes to anything craft related.
Pencil crayons, felt pens, glue, scissors...he will find them all!

Who invited YOU to the feeder?
Not impressed to see Mr. G. (Greedy) Red Winged Blackbird
and his friends eating in the feeder this afternoon.

I guess with this many birds so close to our back door,
it should be no surprise when one comes inside.

Great way to get your kids to wash their hands!!
I don't know how many times in the last two days that one of my kids
has come running up to me and stuck their hands under my nose...
"Smell my hands, Mom!"

Our place has gone to the birds!!!

They are so comfortable that they now help themselves to seed
if I haven't gotten around to feeding them yet.

And this cute little chickadee flew right in the back door this morning
when we were getting ready to leave for town.  It gave Reuben such shock
that he came bounding out the house with only one shoe on!

It took a while, but the chickadees
have found my new peanut feeder.

Since you asked...the feeder is from Cdn Tire!

The kids were doing more grumbling than cleaning up the playroom
so I asked them if they wanted to fold some laundry too.  They gladly obliged.
Too bad I can't upload the video of this, complete with Christmas carols,
crazy faces, and a whole lot of giggles...

The birdies discovered the yummy bagel that Reuben made for them
at preschool last week.  They ate all the goodies off of it so
we smeared on more peanut butter and pressed more bird seed into it.
But this morning, the entire bagel was gone!  Who is the culprit??

Going to the river for the afternoon is always so much fun.
Some of the cousins and aunts and uncles were there too.
We even took Sasha and Blake along this time.
As you can see, Blake loved every minute of it...
mind you, so did Sasha!!  I don't think she's run so much in a long time!!
When I fed her tonight, she got out of her doghouse all gingerly and crippled-like!

It's been clear...and cold the past few days.
Even this Blue Heron seems to be a tucked in against the cold.

As I was driving around town doing errands this morning,
I was enjoying the leaves blowing around and skipping over the streets.
I was thinking how wonderful this blustery weather was.
Then I came home to this...
My beloved bird feeder...
It's gonna need some handyman repairs :(

Yesterday it rained most of the day, but late afternoon
the sun broke through, even while the last drops were falling.
The colours of the Japanese Maple tree were just gorgeous in the sun!

I used to love the time change in November...
but ever since kids entered our lives, that extra hour of sleep just isn't to be had.
It seems the kids are mixed up for days/weeks, trying to adjust.
Maybe one year we'll be able to sleep in that extra hour again:)

Waiting for his tanker to be filled so he can haul water to his house.
Sounds a little bit Alberta-like!!
