Wow, November is here already!! Some people had mentioned a preference for a weekly chat thread over a monthly chat thread, so I thought I would start one for the first week of November.
How did everyone's Halloween go? It was chilly here (about -7C) but DH, DS and I got all bundled up and DS had his first "trick or treating" experience. He really liked ringing the bell and saying "trick or treat", and loved the halloween decorations. Usually he would start walking away, forgetting about getting any candy entirely! His costume turned out well and he loved being a Robot. It was too bad it was so cold, not too many trick or treaters out. Our next door neighbour is so sweet. He's a 90 year old widower and he sits by his door the whole night with his camera just waiting for the little trick or treaters. Last night I think he maybe got 2 or 3. Poor neighbour Bill.
Here's a picture (not a very good one!). Anyone else have pics of their little tykes to share? Amanda, how much candy did you get when you went out trick or treating?
So, on the crappy picture note...can anyone recommend a good (but not crazy expensive) SLR camera? Our old camera (point and shoot) is broken, and as a family Christmas gift this year I'd like to buy an SLR.
So, what else is new and exciting?
