We had a Halloween success tonight. We ended up at two separate parties. Poor Oscar is cowering at my feet though as I type thanks to all the firecrackers. I’m guessing he’s going to be sleeping upstairs next to my bed tonight!

Earlier in the day we went to friend’s to help them pack their moving truck. They’re moving to Gabriola Island to live on five acres. I can’t wait to see all that they grow on their new land. I prepared supper but before we made it we went to the first Halloween event held at Morrell Nature Sanctuary. The night before we had water-painted paper to be cut out into maple leaves. Lily was a Maple Tree Princess tonight! She wore the green sweater I knit for her and the green skirt we bought from Louise from A Darlington Original.

Happy Halloween

Afterwards we headed over to a Block Watch sponsored Halloween party in Deverille Square. They had a whole table filled with homemade baked goods and drinks and gave out goodie bags to each child. We took the bags but gave them to dh to take to work. Mil had sent us some locally made chocolate in the shape of a pumpkin filled with treats so that was enough for us.

Happy Halloween

We had such a fun night!

    Wow – at Morrell Sanctuary? I had no idea there was something being put on there… what a great place to do Halloween! Is this something new that will be continuing? Who put it on? Would love to know for next year! Sounds like you folks had a really nice evening. That property on Gabriola sounds amazing, too. Thanks for sharing :)

    I’m not sure who put it on but it was good fun. A friend of mine was helping with it but I neglected to ask what group she was with. I just assumed a “Friends of Morrell” type group. We saw a poster advertising the event when we were there last week and knew for sure that would be the best place for us to go for Halloween. I’m sure they’ll do it again. At least I hope so!

    What did you do this Halloween? Trick or Treat? Party somewhere? I haven’t been over to your blog yet to check! I guess I should go do that.

    The property is great but COVERED in broom. We’re going to have to have a broom busting party there soon and we’re bringing our chainsaw! It’s about 13 acres right behind the grocery store and community commons so nice and close to the ferry terminal. They are car free so that’s very handy.

    I miss you too Sarah!! Muah!

    Hey, I love the maple princess costume!

    I loved that you disagreed with the “Canadian” Obama video. I would love to hear why. It is really hard for me to get a true Canadian opinion, way down here where I live.

    love, Katherine

    Ha! I’m glad you weren’t put out that I disagreed with that. I’m on my way back over to your blog to explain!

    “II hadn’t thought of it beforehand but I hope it wasn’t offensive to share my thoughts on the topic. I know that American political fervour is strong and Obama has a very serious following. Obama for all his liberalism is as conservative as our most right wing party here in Canada.

    He is a trade protectionist and he believes he has to change the trade laws to protect American industry from competition with Canadian Industry.

    Free Trade has never favoured Canada and if Obama gets in the situation will become much worst. Obama would like to see Canada as giant reservoir of natural resources free for the taking (water, logs, minerals, oil, electricity…).

    The Alcan power fiasco is a good example of what Free Trade doesn’t do for us. Starting trade deals with an inequitable balance of power will enviably lead to Canada getting screwed.

    Mulroney’s Free Trade deal has long been biting us in the ass and it’s only going to get worst at the expense of our environment, ecology, economy and domestic industry.

    Canada should step back from Free Trade and Globalisation and focus on getting our domestic affairs in order before we become the raw resource basket of the world. “
