Chocolatey Goodness

I'm not a big fan of giving Sadie a lot of candy, chocolate, ice cream or anything sweet/sugary. But I figured, why not? She didn't even dig into her first birthday cake. She was a little hesitant at first to lick the spatula but when she realized it was good, she continued the licking.

So if you are not a big fan of snow, Calgary is the wrong city to be living in. We've had snow more than we've had sunny and hot days. SERIOUSLY! Before summer (if you can actually call it summer), we had snow storms in May. Summer wasn't exactly summer with it raining almost everyday or the weather being cold. I don't think we reached 30+ degrees at all. Then September hits and we've been having some nice days even lasting to weeks. But surprise surprise, Calgary gets snow.
Woke up that morning and was totally down seeing snow. But I started to get used to it. I've been sick alot this past month and that day was one of the days where I was actually feeling pretty good. So I bundled Sadie up and off we went into the snow. We didn't stay out very long. I forgot Sadie's boots at Mike's house so all she had were a pair of sneakers and those got wet right away. Poor girl, she still wanted to walk around outside. The snow was just too wet. Some of it stuck but most of it melted once it hit the ground. And by the afternoon, all the snow had melted away and the sun was out shining. That's Calgary for ya.

snack time for Mommy and Sades

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the snow to stay away until after Halloween at least. I'm debating whether or not to take Sadie outside trick or treating or to just stick to the malls during the day and hand out candy in the evening.

busy weekend.

Backyard fixings, a wedding and Thanksgiving dinner -- this weekend was a busy weekend. Now that the weather has been decent enough... actually decent doesn't cut it... it's been gorgeous! Mike finally has the time to work on his yard. Sod layed down, walk way finished and now his fence. Early mornings and late nights, the yard is coming together, slowly but surely.

CONGRATS to Dennis and Chelsea Ellison!

Last but not least, thanksgiving dinner. My mom and I cooked dinner... she obviously cooked the turkey or else we would have been eating burnt, dry turkey. Took all day to cook and only took about 5 minutes or even less to get full.
