Weekend Recap

 We had a fairly quiet weekend and it was nice. 

On Friday we did some bowling on the Switch after school.  I wasn't that good but Q was doing well. 

Then we went out to meet one of Q's friends and his parents for supper. We had a great meal and it was so nice to catch up with them. 

Meanwhile E was at a birthday party, his yellow jacket was perfect for glow in the dark mini-putt.

On Saturday morning we had a few more bags of leaves to rake. We may need to do one or more judging from what's left on the trees, but this is the most of it!

I took the kids to swimming.  E's phone wasn't plugging in so while I sat at swimming I worked on figuring out what was wrong with it. I realized it had kleenex lint jammed in it.  I got most of it and took this photo to show E what was wrong with it.

After we got home we walked up the street to see what was going on with the annual Santa in the Village.  Dave said when we got home it felt like we were doing a little food tour in our own neighbourhood. 

We got some pizza for lunch.

They kids made decorated some gingerbread cookies

Then there was a kids' music performer and Q was all in for that!

He joined in with the rest of them.

We got some hot chocolate, coffee, and popcorn, and bought some Krispy Kreme doughnuts whose proceeds were going to charity.

And we waited in line to see Santa! 

We picked up some sausages for supper, and some cheese and crackers.  One of the stores had a place to write a little note so the kids did that.

Q's cookie, I forgot to take a picture when we were up there.

On Sunday we watched the last F1 race of the season and went to church in the morning.  In the afternoon Dave and I went to Home Depot to look at toilets, and Home Sense to buy sheets and look at mirrors and lamps.  The kids played Lego and made stop-motion videos while we were gone.

We had bought this Harry Potter a few months ago, so E got him out. He's bigger than I thought he would be!

We had a nice dinner and watched a couple of shows before going to bed at a decent time.


  1. Santa In The Village (and all the food!) sounds fun! Given our snow, we're definitely done raking leaves for the season.

  2. That's so cool that you can walk to so many fun things...looks like the boys had lots of fun!
