happy halloween. rawr.

...wait, do leopards rawr?
Boo to yet another rainy halloween.
Not that we were going to go trick-or-treating, since any candy collected 
would inevitably be eaten by mama and papa.
Little Miss wanted to wear her costume a day early.
Why not?  Better that we get some use out of it!
So we went to the park and mama was able to take SOME (understatement) 
pictures on a nice sunny day.
What I mean to say is:
This post is a photo dump of my child dressed as a leopard.
Who taught her to pose like this?
I mean really.
"I don't get to eat any candy AGAIN?!" 
"I'm very upset with you right now."

Hope you're having a happy & safe halloween!

(and a reminder of what a very chubby minnie mouse looked like)

pumpkin patch.

That time we tried to go pumpkin picking and it turned out to be a mistake.
Well not a mistake, but seemed like every other family in the GTA had the same idea.
Constantly backtracking here.  All the way back to the beginning of October.
We went/tried to go pumpkin picking.  But basically spent the entire time standing in lines.
Managed to stay long enough to snap a few pictures...
Don't let this smile fool you.
This city girl absolutely refuses to step on grass (or dirt, or sand...)
and spent most of the time like this:
In summary, this is how I felt about the whole experience.
Oh ya, makin' memories.
Happy weekend!

more is more.

I meant to post these a while ago but life got in the way, blah blah... you know the drill.

This girl, lover of hats, scarves, headbands, hairpins... anything that will fit on her head.
(pants even, boxes even, oh and a toque in 30degree weather even)

If you can't choose one, then wear them all.
And then check yourself out in the mirror.
And ask your mama if she thinks you look pretty.
Once upon a time when I was a little thing, I too practiced the "more is more" approach to fashion. 
(although mine was probably "more is more and maybe a little more")
Also, I may have had an "I insist on wearing my pink swimming cap" era in the mid80s. 
So with that image, I bid you adieu.

Have a great weekend!

hi. i'm still here.

Hi Hi
Too many things have been happening around here and I haven't been able to 
find the time (or energy) to make my way over here.

Mainly, we moved (!)
With some very helpful friends (and a little person who likes to think that she's helping),
we moved into our new place over the weekend.
We're still living out of boxes, on a mattress on the floor,
with no curtains on the windows, but it's nice to finally start settling in.
And there's no greater motivation for me to unpack, than a toddler who likes to ransack anything/everything within reach, and eat cardboard (amongst many other non-edible objects).
Since my last post, Moo is walking, starting to say words 
(and tries to repeat everything we say... gotta watch our mouths)
and has gone from baby to toddler way too quickly.
With the attitude she gets when she doesn't get her way,
it's like she's 16months, going on 16 years.

We're still scrambling around here, but I want (hope) to update more often!
Be back soon!
