Saturday while it was nice, Eric and the boys cleaned out the chimney to prepare for our fires. Issabelle was on standby to help with the drilling. By Sunday morning we were cold and had that fire blazing. It snowed all day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Issabelle can't even walk in the snow unless there is a path cleared. We got to try out our new to us snowblower since our old one we had for 15 years blew up when Eric was checking it out a few weeks ago.
The kids have spent hours out in our first big snowstorm of the season. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
Trick or treating was fun. Harkin especially thought it was awesome. He was so excited every time he got a piece of candy in his bag. William was good sport. He took Issabelle up every time and she was a sweet sister as she shared her candy with him. He got a few pieces but many people felt he was a bit old I think to be trick or treating- he is so tall. He decided it would be his last year officially going out, but I am sure he will manage to get candy. The ninja was quiet and managed to get the most candy. He's a sneaky one:)
We have a short two week break and then William starts indoor soccer, but that is just one night a week, until practice begins mid-winter for spring soccer. Seems to me we are becoming quite the soccer family. Harkin asks more often than not when is he going to play again. Right now the back yard is fine for the littles as they have two great teachers- 3 including daddy:)
