The Dog party - take note of the strangest pinata ever made. It was sort of in the shape of a bone. Clara, Leo and I made it ourselves and despite its rather odd appearance we were very proud of our handiwork. Of course, the fact that it was filled with lollipops made it even more lovable ;)
Happy 4th birthday Leo!

Patricia and Malcolm spent Thanksgiving weekend with us and we were joined by the rest of the extended family on Monday for a delicious turkey lunch. Malcolm is such a bundle of energy, I can't really describe him properly because he is not "into everything" as people might assume when I say a two-year old is a bundle of energy, he is just in constant motion!

Leo's 4th Birthday (early in the morning)

Today was the day for our trip to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch with Leo's Carrefour group. It was lots of fun despite the rain and mud. I'm particularly proud of how I managed to get home with:
  • 1 tired boy
  • 1 full back pack
  • 1 lunchbox
  • 2 bags of apples
  • 2 pumpkins
and all with only an umbrella stroller!
