September 25th & 26th - Another Weekend Under Our Belts

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Another weekend come and gone. Nothing too eventful - I was going to wait until October 1st, but the Hallowe'en tub was calling my name so our front porch has the beginnings of Fall decor earlier than expected - I'm 99% sure my neighbours roll their eyes every season, "there she goes again".

For those of you who don't know, I'm notorious for misplacing things... I have this awful habit of stashing items away only to never see them again (my hiding spots are simply that good). Usually it's Trev's stuff I lose (ie. passport), but this time it's the wreath hanger I tucked away for safekeeping. It's so frustrating knowing that one is somewhere in this house, but I have no idea where. I may have to breakdown and buy another.

I think Becs and I finally decided on Hallowe'en costumes for the kids. My friend Kara gave me her daughter's candy corn outfit from last year (which I absolutely love) but of course it's too big for Saige - story of her life. I was tres disappointed until I found a matching candy corn fairy costume at Winners the other day. So now Caleb and Saige can go trick-or-treating as Mr. & Mrs. Candy Corn.

Saturday morning was the semi-annual 'Kids Garage Sale' that every mom at every mom's group talks about for months in advance. Trev and I attempted to go last year, but silly us showed up 5 minutes before door opening and the line was literally a mile long. This year I made sure we were dressed and out of the house by 8:30 a.m. and we were still 50 parents behind in line. I can only describe the experience as utter and complete chaos - everyone around me was in such a panic, pushing oversized strollers, grabbing at baby mobiles and carseats. As a "Kids Garage Sale" virgin I felt like a fish out of water and poor Trev just hugged Saige close and gave me the "can we go soon" eyes. Fortunately we scored some pretty sweet deals: 

For Saige:
- a pink Li'l Giant tricycle ($30)
- a pair of cowgirl boots for ($5)
- a Melissa & Doug magnetic responsibility chart ($5)

For Me:
- a pink Nintendo DS with 15 games ($80) **I've always wanted to play Brain Age**


Saige and her new tricycle.

We dropped Saige off with my Gramma on Saturday night and treated ourselves to a delicious Italian dinner courtesy of the Tita's G.C. I got for my birthday. After 2 hours of talking (mostly about Saige) and 2 pear ciders I was ready to go home and get into my pj's. We decided to watch "Date Night" for our date night and made ourselves a little floor picnic with snacks and blankets. I helped myself to couple handfuls of popcorn and another cider and a half and by 10:15 p.m. I was officially hammered - it's crazy how little it takes to get me drunk these days. Trev had to respond to  a Search & Rescue page and when he came home just after midnight I was in the exact same position he left me in - passed out on the couch. How can you tell I rarely - if ever - drink?

 
The scene of our wild & crazy Saturday night :S

I was slightly hungover Sunday morning. We lounged until 9:30 a.m. and then hoped in the truck to go pick up our monster. We walked through Baba's front door only to witness the most horrifying discovery - Saige eating and enjoying black licorice!! No child of ours should ever like the taste of black licorice, especially before lunch... yech!

Saige and I both had naps and planned on going to Davison Orchards in the afternoon to pick apples right off the branches, but unfortunately Trev got called into work enroute so instead we picked out a bag of galas, a tiny pumpkin and a mini-pumpkin pie. We weren't allowed to leave before feeding the farm animals - Lord knows they'd starve without Saige's small handful of pellets.
