Fall traditions 

Our fall weather has been great! Warm just like summer days! Although you never know if you should bring along a sweater or not! 
Every year we have the same fall traditions we love to do. I haven’t blogged in a while so get ready for tons of pictures below!

The first weekend of Fall we went apple picking! We picked 2 bags full of apples and bought some yummy apple pies at their bakery. The kids also loved their honey stix and candy apples!

Candy apple deliciousness!
I haven’t blogged in a while! So I didn’t do a thanksgiving post!
We did our tradition of making Our own turkey. The whole family helps and we have so much fun cooking and baking all day! Oh and eating all day!


This bird was delish! 

We also went up north for a trail/ beach walk that weekend. It was soo peaceful.

This October marked the 15 year anniversary since my dad passed away.

Over the years we try and get together with family on the day or weekend of my dads anniversary. The togetherness is something my dad would totally love to see. He loved when the family was together.
So this weekend we went to the pumpkin patch then headed over to my moms house...



We got a family pic! My mom loved this!
After the pumpkin patch we all drove to the cemetery. We each placed a yellow rose. The children loved taking part in something so special.

We then went back to my moms for a yummy dinner with the whole family. It was a perfect day with family in honor of our dad.
The whole weekend was sunny and warm. We headed out to another trail walk today. Soaking up this sun as much as we can!

Of course baby bro is pushing the cart with big bro. Ha! Baby M’s new words “see that” and on repeat! 
More fall to come! Little k’s 6th birthday is next week! And Halloween too!
Oh and umm 9  more Monday’s till Christmas!!! Ha!

Thanksgiving long weekend!

The weather was perfect this weekend. We had a couple of fun events and ended our weekend with a yummy turkey made by moi!  

Little K was so excited for the weekend! 

The Mr picked him up early on Friday, and that was a perfect start to the long weekend! 

First thing Saturday we had little k's swimming lessons. 
He is loving this class. He is so cute, always asking to go first when trying new things. 

After swimming lessons we met up with family and friends at a pumpkin patch! 
This place was beautiful and so scenic! 




 

The kids had soo much fun! 
Playing on the hills, going in the boo barn and riding a pony!!



 



After a fun day out we ended the evening at a yummy restaurant. 
We are so proud of our kids. They love socializing and being out together with family and friends. They were having their own little conversation and asking each other what they will order. They had a blast! 

The family fun continued on Sunday. We had my grandmothers 85th birthday party! We love super Nonna soo much! 


 
 
The food was soo good at this restaurant! My grandparents were so happy to have everyone together celebrating. 

We got my grandma a Kate spade purse! 



Then came Monday! We were up early and everyone helped in the kitchen! 

 Our new family tradition! 


I'm so proud of my turkey haha! It was my first time, and it came out delicious! I made rice, sweet potatoes, stuffing, mashed potatoes,beans, corn cranberry sauce, gravy soo good! And Apple pie for dessert! 

We said our prayer before our lunch and we all said out loud what we were thankful for. Little k said he was thankful for his cousins, his family and friends, his toys, iPad, and water. Haha. We helped him extend his thanks to many other things and also praying for those in need.

 We are so thankful and blessed to have amazing friends and family. We had a great weekend full of love. Making great memories and new traditions. 

Happy Thanksgiving, from our family to yours.

Thanksgiving long weekend!!

What a fun weekend! This time last year we moved out of our old house to stay at my moms place while our new house was being built! Fall in the city was so great last year. 

This fall has been beautiful so far! Many sunny colorful days! The house is always smelling like apple cinnamon goodness!

This weekend we went to make our own wine! Well not like making our own wine in our garage or anything. We have neighbors that are great at doing that, but we are doing it with a company that will do all the dirty work for us! Ha! 

We are making our own Pinot Noir.
Saturday we went to drop the yeast in our bucket of wine.
The whole process will take 4 weeks. 
Once done we will go back and bottle and label our own wine! 


That evening we ordered a lobster dinner from our favorite seafood restaurant! They delivered which was great! And they were fast too!
Lobster Bisque and garlic bread! 
We had a 2lbs and 2.5lbs lobsters! Seriously sooo good!!! 
Perfect for a Saturday night in! 



Sunday we had Thanksgiving lunch with the family. 

Baby M's first thanksgiving! 
He was the cutest Turkey hsha

Cousin Love! These kids are so much fun! 

It's not only Thanksgiving weekend. It's also blue jays weekend! Baseball!!

Our team won 2 games this weekend! Yay! 


Happy Thanksgiving!!!
