Trick or Treat

We always go out trick or treating with Beej and this year was no exception. Their neighbourhood is perfect for us and it is full of little trick or treaters.
But, before we were able to run from house to house collecting free candy the adults made us have a nutritious dinner of pizza and cake. Beej and Ate M made this spooktacular ghost cake for us to fill up on before hitting the streets and gathering our loot.
This was the first year that I really got what Halloween was all about.
By the end of the night I didn't need Dad to hold my hand anymore and was running with Beej from house to house.
I wasn't even scared of this house. Thanks for a fun night of trick or treating Beej. Happy Halloween everyone!

Happy Halloween

Halloween Preparations

So, Sarah introduced me to pinterest where I have found and pinned all sorts of cool things. The amount of amazing holiday craft ideas on there is mind blowing, I only wish that I had more time. I have picked out a few of my very favourite and Lola and I are working on them for Halloween.
The project we were working on tonight involved a pumpkin, a whole lot of buttons, and a hot glue gun.
I was pretty happy with how it turned out and it was all done and cleaned up in 20 minutes. Which is just about the arts and craft attention span on a three year old.
Just wait till you see what we have planned for Christmas.

Working Girl

I have been asking and asking Mom to take me to work with her one day. She finally relented.
The staff and students at York University couldn't handle how cute I am!

The Pumpkin Patch 2011

Last year we started a new tradition with Grandpa and Oma, an annual trip to visit the pumpkin patch by their house.
There is a lot of great stuff to do there.
They have a hunted pirate ship made of hay bales. I was the captain and Dad was my first mate for this spooky adventure on the high seas.
They also have a pumpkin mini putt course. Oma was the champion of the pumpkin patch mini putt this year.
Though Dad and I did manage to get a hole in one.
They also have a hay bale tractor that I enjoyed driving, it has a really loud working horn that I truly enjoyed honking.
This was one of the funny pumpkin people that are spread throughout the farm. I really liked shaking his hand.
The whole farm is covered with fun photograph opportunities.
They also have tractor rides and the farmer took us on a grand tour of the whole 140 acre farm. We saw where they grow their corn, blue berries, strawberries, squash, apples and lots of other neat things.
But, our favourite part of the visit to the pumpkin patch is this game. Last year this was where Mom won her major award. Clearly this year Grandpa and Oma had been practicing because they both managed to get their ball into the hole on the first shot.
Mom and Dad didn't perform as well this year and are now thinking about constructing a similar unit at home in order to improve over the off season.

A ball in the hole means a free pumpkin. We picked out the two most beautiful pumpkins in the entire pumpkin farm.Thanks for a great visit Grandpa and Oma.

Eyes Wide Shut

Recently I like to only have my photo taken with my eyes shut. That way I can see what I look like with my eyes shut. Otherwise I would have no clue what I looked like with my eyes shut. I think that I look pretty cute this way.

The weather on Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally nice and this year was no exception. It was the most beautiful three days that we have had in awhile, and recently we have had some pretty nice days.
I hope that you had a wonderful time with your families, I know that I did!

Happy Birthday Daddy

This weekend we started to celebrate Dad's birthday. Dad's birthday celebrations take the entire month of October to complete. Dad likes it when we continually celebrate how wonderful he is. So, for our first celebration of Daddy, Mom and I hosted a birthday dinner and made this amazing cake.
As usual I was Mom's helper and was in charge of decorating.
Mom made a whack of ribs so that the adults could have Darcy's Birthday Rib Celebration.
And I invited a few of my friends over for an kids dinner and a movie.
Dad was really excited about eating his cake. He had been driven wild by the smell of it baking all day.We sang a rousing version of Happy Birthday and were finally able to dig into the cake. Dinner was good, but the cake was better.
Happy Birthday Daddy, I hope that you have an extra special day!
