Last Hurrah of Autumn

We went to the Pumpkin patch on Saturday but it was closed because the owners son was getting married. We threw the kids into the pile of pumpkins anyway and got some cute pictures

Happy Thanksgiving!

As Jayson was only a week old last year for American Thanksgiving this was his first Canadian Thanksgiving. He enjoyed it immensely, especially the green beans, see them in his mouth? He was two fisted into the mashed potatoes (sorry no photo) and he ate like a starving man. Unfortunately the turkey did not do its trick with him by sending him to the land of nod. Perhaps he was overstimulated with the company. We had three families over, Ken and Ellen Fuss are going to Togo, Paul and Chantelle McIver are going to Niger and Anthony and Yolande Gould are from Australia. All of us are here to study French. Funny thing was that we all spoke English all evening!

Really, we are in school. After looking at some of the beauty around Qu├ębec some of you may think that we are just up here on vacation and not going to school. We are just trying to get as many activities in before the snows start to fly. My friend told me that he is usually snowboarding by the middle of October up in the mountains. While we aren't close to freezing, yet, the weather forcasters have predicted that we will go down to around 50 degrees for the highs next week. But this week was absolutely BEA---beautiful! The colors up here are so vibrant and beautiful. The mountains look as if they are on fire with all the colors. I expect the the mountains will be finished and dropped all the leaves in about two weeks. In the city, it will be a bit longer since we aren't so high up. I will leave this post as is for now. Janice will come back with a post of the kids, because they have been so cute lately.
