Not sure what happened to October but I do know the calendar has been flipped and it now reads November. We have completed the usual fall activities, Thanksgiving in Ottawa, full force into ice sports, the trip to Nauman's Pumpkin patch, selecting and making Halloween costumes, raking and playing in the leaves and carving pumpkins. Halloween has come and gone, with dangerous little morsels hanging around on every flat service. This does not help my cause but it will soon disappear once the novelty has worn off.
I am hurting today not because of my adventures on the ringette ice but rather the time change. The Ringette for Moms group meet last night for there Sunday night dose of laughter and fun. The 10 pm time slot was okay last week but this week was a killer with the time change. The 10 that really was 11 pm. I have to say that Anne & Jenn(the friendly, experienced leaders)are extremely patient with our inexperience. They must leave the arena and bust a gut at our truly bunny ways!
Besides Halloween on Saturday we had hockey, dance, and a birthday party. Avery was on cloud nine when she scored her first goal in the game. She went without a goal last year and was bound and determined to score in her first few games. She did it and I was proud. I was jumping up and down with tears in my eyes. Such a proud moment. I was so happy for her!
On this past Thursday night I celebrated with friends as 3 great women celebrated milestone birthdays. Happy Birthday Kristyn, Jannine & Cindy. Thanks Jane for hosting and to Amberlea for making the cake. As usual it was delicious. I didn't take my camera so I didn't get a picture - you will have to believe me that it was stunning. Here is a picture of the cards I made for the girls.
Meredith and her Waterloo Wildfire Stars played in their first game yesterday against Guelph. Unfortunately they ended up on the wrong side of the score but they had a great time. Mer even got an assist.
I will leave you with a few fall pictures from the past weeks.
Here are the girls on Halloween - Meredith was an owl and you can see what Avery dressed up as. Just for you Grandma!
Until next time - happy fall!
