I'll be catching up on photos from the weekend, as time permits... We went to Alberta for a family reunion and Thanksgiving. This is at the Alberta-Saskatchewan border on #1 highway. We stayed in Calgary that night, in the guest suite at Aunt Dot's condo. We had gorgeous weather!
I'm pretty anti junk food, but I do let the girls make treats for themselves (and, in this case, to share with cousins) once in awhile. There may as well be photographic evidence of my flexibility! (At least I can combat claims that I "never" let them...) These are Oreo cookies dipped in white chocolate/candy melts. The sticks are glued inside with the melted candy.
Fully into the swing of fall now... Learning how to navigate life at a new level of busy (i.e., Neil working full time - very different from last fall!) Gearing up for ringette season. Looking forward to it!

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a little better;
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is the meaning of success.
