Happy Halloween!!

Its 4:41pm and waiting for George to come home so we can go Trick or Treating!! I am SO EXCITED!!! For real.. I think I am more excited than the kids are. I love it. I love it more then I did when I was a kid going out. It was always so bloody cold. Its beautiful here today.. the temp is 15C right now with NO SNOW!! The kids are having a quick bite before we head out. I will be posting pictures later.

It was a nice quiet weekend. We went to an Outlet Mall in Mississauga on Saturday and got some good deals. George bought 3 pairs of workpants for $17!! Nice. Amy and I got runners, mine were $17 and hers were $5. She also got her ears pierced so it was a productive day. Jarret got the short end of the stick but he really doesn't need anything right now. We will make it up to him.

We were home by 7:30 watched X Men 3 and I watched half of The Break Up. Loved X Men.. And I actually liked The Break Up (when I finished Sunday morning). George has been super busy with work the last week and so he was in the office by 9am so it was just the kids and I all day Sunday. We watched Curious George, which I thought was cute. I have always liked Curious George though. I baked some brownies and we just hung out.. it was nice.

Both kids probably shouldn't watch any more Halloween Specials on YTV I had both of them in my room with bad dreams last night. Amy twice and that is a first! I woke up this moring at 6:45 and heard the TV.. Came into the living room and there was Jarret laying on the couch watching TV. He said he was up at 6:10!! This time change is going to kill him by the end of the week. I was in bed at 9:15pm last night.. lol. Old lady that I am.

Well that's it for now I suppose..

Jarrets fun night with dad

George and Jarret went to the Raptors game on Sunday. They were in a suite. Jarret thought it was great! It was a surprise for Jarret. He didn't know he was going to the game until George handed him his ticket. Ever since we have moved to Toronto Jarret always asks us about 2 things. 1.The Air Canada Center
2.The CN Tower
So he was pretty excited about getting to go in the ACC for the game. He ate Skittles, peanuts and a big Raptors theme glass of 7-up.

The view from the suite

Dancing boy..

Ok.. Not only did he get to see The Raptors at the ACC George took him to the CN Tower after the game..Also another surprise.

When they got home Jarret was grinning from ear to ear. He couldn't stop talking about his night with his dad. I really think it hurt him not to smile.. He was one happy boy..

What a weekend..

Mona The Vampire, Amy and Jarret
Amy and Jarret with Blue
Amy and Jarret with Patrick
Who doesn't know this guy?? And Jarret.. Amy was scared of him.
This was at Spooktakular at Canada's Wonderland. We planned on having one weekend where we actually stayed home and chilled.. That's a joke. George called on Friday afternoon to say he got tickets to Mickey's Magic Show. So once the kids got home we hopped a but then 2 subways and headed downtown to go to The Hummigbird Theater for the show. The kids were pretty excited but I thought Amy was going to have stroke she was so excited. We got there early and had to wait for the doors to open she didn't understand why we weren't sitting in our seats. The show was excellent. All the princesses were there. Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Daisy, Goofy.. Everyone. Oh ya, the magic part was cool too..lol. I brought my camera to take pictures but was told that Disney would confiscate the cameras if they caught anyone taking pictures. So unfortunately none to show.
So then yesterday we headed to Spooktakular with the kids in their costumes. Jarret is a Ninja (again) and Amy is Sleeping Beauty. They had all the kids rides going and as you can see from the above pictures they met a lot of characters from some of their favorite shows. We arrived at 11am and left at 430pm.. We were all very exhausted. We had a very good weekend.
George is heading off to The Raptors game tonight. A guy from his office had a ticket but couldn't make it. So he offered it to George to take Jarret.. But he cant find his ticket. So they are trying to figure out something so Jarret can go. They will be in a suite for the game. I hope it works out Jarret can go.. He will LOVE it.
that's it for now.. Sorry another long one..

Hockey Hall Of Fame on Saturday... it was fun.. Amy told us how bored she was from time to time but she survived

Jarret was so excited to be there.. I was a little shocked on how excited he was.. he is just getting into hockey. He LOVES the Oilers and was pointing out all the Oilers stuff..

And of course some birthday pictures.. He loved everything everyone got him.. so THANK YOU!! I checked on him in bed last night and he fell asleep with his Blue Jays baseball glove and Blue Jays baseball beside him.. He's a Jays fan.. (please ignore the ugly boxes in the background.. we are still trying to organize our house... )

Happy Birthday Jarret

Jarret is 7 (well on Sunday just wanted to post tonight). In a lot of ways I cant believe he is 7 and then I think OMG.. He's only 7?? He is such a good kid. He is funny, caring, smart, sensitive, creative, cuddly, shy, but very chatty with people he knows, and a mamma's boy. I cant help but baby him sometimes. George is always after me cause I do more than I should for him and he is in grade 2. I am doing my best to cut the apron strings its hard though. I will try harder.

So we went to The Hockey Hall Of Fame today. I will post pictures later just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my boy. Love you Jarret!!
