I hope she does. However the best part for both of us was finding photos that we hadn't seen for years and had totally forgotten. I have 2 that I can't remember where they were taken.

What a thoughtful gift you made for your daughter Valerie! She must treasure it!

Nice and warm here this week, no sign of snow...in the near future anyways ;)

With the arrival of Fall, the leaves are turning colours with lots of trees starting to lose leaves already.  Such a beautiful time of year to be outside and walk along the trails in the river valley here.

Have the trees started to turn back East yet?

Hallowe'en certainly brings back happy memories of Canada for me. For my daughter's 40th birthday a couple of years ago, my husband and I had a book made and printed of all the photos we could find of her from birth to age 40 with captions. While we were organising it, I found all the photos of her in her Hallowe'en costumes. I hadn't realised that I'd made so many. I do remember shivering in the cold some years while accompanying the children. The nice part was the party we held after for the parents!!

Gosh. I remember one year, probably around 1995-ish, it was -30C. Luckily, the girls were quite young so they were happy as could be about the loot they collected from the few houses on the block that we went to.

Costumes are always designed to fit over snowsuits and it's always a bonus when the kids don't have to bundle up.

One Halloween, our friends daughter had the cutest costume [made by her mother] She was so disappointed when it started to snow and she had to wear her heavy coat.  She opened her coat at every house to show them her costume....everyone was very impressed LOL

It's positively SINFUL for the skies to give snow before Hallowe'en!!!

Welcome Renee !

We haven't had anymore snow near Edmonton since Monday, now but it sure has been chilly as you say Barb!  It's been great weather to knit and crochet :)

No snow is my corner of Northern Alberta. :) But it sure is chilly. At a measly 5C, it's well below normal. Brrr!!!

I certainly don't envy you Beth. Here in my corner of France, we're in the middle of a thunder storm due to the high temperatures we've been having over the last week.
