We’ve been busy lately. Two weeks ago we visited the Laity Pumpkin Patch in Maple Ridge. It was a massive hit – Hannah asks to go to ‘the farm’ nearly every day now. It was completely crazy, but it was also a great time, and we found our Halloween pumpkins. I’m glad we went when we did, apparently it’s been an awful year for pumpkins, and the pickings were already slim well in advance of the big day.
Then, a week ago James and Sara brought out some flower girl dresses for Hannah to try on. She will be doing the honours at their wedding in March. Hannah had a great time trying the dresses on, and she was very sad and confused when they took them away again. It’s for the best, though – there’s no way I would trust a toddler with a white dress and expect it to look good in 5 months’ time.
Finally, we attended the wedding of Jon’s co-worker last Saturday. Hannah had an absolute blast running around with the other kids and dancing. She was especially tickled with the cookies that the bride baked.
So, what’s next on our whirlwind schedule? Why, Halloween of course. I’ve started sewing Hannah’s costume. Wish me luck on getting it finished and fitting properly in advance of the deadline!
