October 18th

October 17th

my display at a local event. It was a last minute decision for me but with some frames and prints from costco, black fabric for the fabric store and stands from the dollar store I think it turned out pretty well! Next time I would make some sort of banner for the front

October 15th

my son got to be an honour guard for the King of Sweden at a scouting event at the national art gallery (apparently the King is the top scout). I didn't think parents were going to be allowed to get close so didn't bring my big camera but luckily I had my little point and shoot one in my purse and was able to snap a few pics before the battery died. Here he is about to bring a flag up on the stage

My daughter at her cross country running meet. Her school's bus was delayed so she almost missed her run. The bus showed up just in time so the kids had to run to the start line (no time to get their school shirts on) then run 2 km. I'm really proud of her for finishing...I wouldn't have been able to do it.  She's a little past the half way mark here

we're getting some family pictures done on the weekend so I picked my daughter up early from school and we had a nice afternoon together getting new hairdos.

We've been going on lots of walks lately to enjoy the beautiful Fall colours.

We thought these mushrooms were leaves at first...very cool!

We've been getting lots of rain which is making the colours of the trees gorgeous!

I thought these leaves were interesting because they were in the process of changing colour

Looks like someone is going to be asking Santa for his two front teeth for Christmas. The first tooth is out and the other one should be following along shortly. I'm not sure how the big teeth coming in are going to fit...there's no room in his mouth. Orthodontist, here we come! $$$

my God-daughter at her dedication.

The light wasn't the greatest in the church but I loved how she was checking things out during the service. Don't you love her jacket and bonnet? it belonged to her Grandmother from her baptism

This is part of the view from the corner office at my husband's work (unfortunately it's not his office). The views of downtown Ottawa are spectacular!

I thought my son's reflection in the window was cute

i'm slowly trying to de-clutter my house (it's getting out of control)! I spent the day taking pictures of things to try and sell online....I was able to get rid of quite a few things.

these american idol barbies make me laugh, one sings Britney's "oops I did it again song" and the other one sings "what I like about you". I haven't been able to sell these yet....maybe I should make a video of them singing
