halloween has come and gone.
today we can enjoy a quiet day at home - 
laundry, cleaning and tossing moldy pumpkins 
[fueled by mini mars and swedish berries]!

london bridge is falling down
it was a soggy month -

torrential rain the night of the ghost train and the next day the pumpkin patch was one huge orange puddle!

the great pumpkin puddle

looook into my eyes
my costume was undecided until a week before halloween - 
but i was lucky to find all i needed at urban source and 
"EYElizabeth Taylor" was born!

EYElizabeth Taylor

trick or treat!

already looking forward to next year!




halloween is a pretty big deal around here.

instead of cramming it all in on the 31st,
we prefer to sprinkle a little bit of creepy all october long!


we made our ghost family with cheesecloth and pipe cleaners.
they hover in the hall on invisible thread.  spoooky!

ghost girl pancake
even our pancakes have taken a turn for the creepy ...

spiderella pancake



ramble on


ramble on - myfanwy macleod or there and back again

saturday, we sought refuge from the rain and headed to the art gallery for the afternoon.

[surprise!] i forgot that it was family fuse weekend - lots of fun things for hadley to do and veda hille performed!

sunday, blue sky and spring cleaning.
