Happy Fall! I love, love, love the fall…the crisp, clean air, the trees turning their stunning colours, being able to see your breath in the morning without a ton of snow on the ground.
We had a busy and fun weekend. Saturday we went off the Samko-Miko Toy Warehouse to start our Christmas shopping. We find it’s a great place to go for gifts for the littles (Meri, Charlotte, and Aaron). We were able to do between 1/3 and 1/2 of our shopping and we spent $236. The hardest people to buy for though are Evan, and Allen. Neither one of them are very vocal about things they might want and they normally don’t want a lot. In contrast, Austan and Andrew tell us what they want every 5 seconds.
Yesterday, Amy and I got to meet an online friend who was visiting Toronto from North Carolina. I have known C from around the same time we were pregnant with our 6-year-olds, but we’d never met in person. We had such a fun time with “C” and her hubby “J”. We’re hoping to see them again this week before they fly back home.
We have a very busy week this week. We’ve got scouting registration, school open house and swimming lessons are starting up again. I am carting children around almost every day.
Here’s our menu for the week:
Sunday ~ Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
Monday ~ Curried Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans
Tuesday~ Chicken Corn Chowder
Wednesday ~ Squash and Spinach Quick Quiche
Thursday ~ Chicken Legs, Pasta and Sauce and Corn
Friday ~ Make your own Pita Pizzas, Strawberry Cheesecake for dessert (Allen turns 10!)
Saturday ~ Apple Juice Pork and Rice
