All Hallows Eve (Halloween) is quickly approaching and there is much to do to get ready. There is so much to do in the next two months: outdoor field trips, crafts that use your creative juices and party planning to name a few. When I was a kid, the build up to Halloween was half the fun. With today’s pre-made costumes and everyone’s busy days it takes a little more planning ahead but if we start now with some ways to build up to Halloween, we can build some great memories.
As an immigrant to Canada from the old world, I was reluctant in the beginning to embrace the Halloween tradition. I thought it was only a commercial event meant to sell costumes and candy. That was before I began to understand the true meaning of Halloween.Add a comment

Try this delicious pie for Thanksgiving. Why buy a pie when you can make a much better one yourself. This year make your pie with homemade puree. It is a little more work, but it taste much better and the added bonus is that it is great lesson for your children. Pumpkins are not only used for Jack Lanterns but also for baking. If you have the chance you can even head out to a pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins for the front porch and the pie.Add a comment
We managed to fill an entire weekend based around building pumpkin scarecrows. It was a perfect combination of playing, house chore, family outing, harvesting and lots of arts and crafts.Add a comment
