Catch up time

Usually Robin helps the kids with pumpkin carving. This year it was just me. But no problem. The kids knew what to do. 

Peter did break a knife trying to pop the top off, but he managed to get the top off and carve a design with another knife. 

We took the time to roast our seeds. They were worth the wait.
The kids both had Halloween parties and asked for Christmas toffee. It was a last minute request of course and so Wednesday night, I was in the kitchen whipping up 2 batches. The kids love this and their friends at school also love this. Go mom.
On Halloween, Emily came over to take Gaelle out. A bride and a smurf.

Peter was a Massai warrior wearing an authentic robe courtesy of his cousins. He went out with a couple of friends and came back with quite the bag of candy and chips. 

Robin was gone for a while for work, but finally he returned bearing gifts. Big smiles all around.

I just celebrated my birthday and enjoyed a delicious meal courtesy of Emily. I was truly spoiled and am so thankful for the love from my family. 

Dessert was turtle ice cream cake.

The picture is a little fuzzy but Gaelle convinced us to all play "Just Dance" which was fun and helped work off some of those calories.
