On Friday night, we had leftovers for supper and then E and I made an apple pie. We used Macintosh apples, thinly sliced, and made the crust from scratch. It turned out really well. We will be away for Thanksgiving this year, so I decided to make one of my favourite kinds of fall pie to take to our friends' house for dinner on Saturday. My new iPhone (the rose gold 6S!) had arrived that day, and after a minor freak out (on my part) because of a glitch in the operating system, Dave got my new phone up and running.
A special little pie made from the leftover pastry - brown sugar, cinnamon, and chocolate chips.
On Saturday morning we headed up to E's school for a fall fair.
His head was cold so he wanted to wear this hat (from Peru) and put his hands in his pockets because they were cold too. He looks about 10 years older in this photo.
I'm not a fan of cotton candy, but I supposed it's alright once in awhile.
You can just see his teeth disintegrating before your eyes from all of that sugar!
I went home early to get my hair cut, so Dave and E took a leisurely walk home by the river.
On Saturday afternoon we went over to someone's house for dinner and E got to play with their son who is E's age. They had a great time and we had a yummy dinner. E was a little whiny on the way home saying "I didn't want to go home yet, I was having so much fun". Good times.
On Sunday morning I walked down the street to pick up a few things including these little pumpkins and some new coffee.
We like to get coffee from a local coffee shop but sometimes Starbucks is calling my name, especially with their holiday flavours.
After church and lunch, Dave and I hung some pictures and then I went for a run. Dave and E headed up to the park where I met them later.

We walked up to Queen Margherita Pizza for supper. Always a favourite.

This week we will be busy getting ready for our trip. I'm sure we could have done more over the weekend to get ready, but it was also nice to be somewhat relaxed.
