Happy Thanksgiving

We've had a lovely long weekend. It's Thanksgiving in Canada and it's suddenly so cold. Today we had a top of 9 degrees. Awesome!
Most of the weekend was spent making pastry for various pies (we received an invite to our first Thanksgiving dinner for Sunday and had apple and vegetable pies to make for our contribution) but we also got out and played some soccer in the park. Poppet is actually pretty good at kicking that ball, must be her Mancunian roots. She certainly doesn't get it from me! The tree climbing is where my genes come in. There's a couple of nice climbing trees at the park, but it was so windy and cold that we had to give up and return home. As the weather cools down we have a nice routine when we get indoors. Poppet has a warm bath, I throw her pyjamas into the dryer and whip up some hot chocolate. It's so good. Summer will never trump that in my book. We did an amazing day-trip today so see the fall colour, but I'll do a separate post to do those photos justice. I even got some work done!
Here's our Thanksgiving weekend in a nutshell...




Some Rudolfs on their way.
Lovely colour!
Squealing and kicking go hand in hand, apparently.

Nice goalie action

Success.
CN Tower in the distance.

Squir'll.
Peeling practise.

Pastry and pyjamas.

Awesome apple pie!
A welcome visitor.
And so, we are thankful to be in Canada. A year on, we are still completely in love with the place and excited about exploring it further. Ice skating lessons have been booked for November and the park ranger told us today she had wet snow falling this weekend. Only an hour out of the city! Fingers crossed for more white stuff this year. We just didn't get enough last season.
Back to school tomorrow and I'll be hard at work on that Xmas stock. Keep an eye out at the end of the month, there'll be some lovely things up for grabs.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend, whatever you've been up to...
