Fall is coming...

Wow it has been nearly three months since i last blogged.  I can't believe how fast the summer went and now my little girl has started kindergarten.

She has absolutely love it!  Two weeks before school started, she broke her wrist falling off the monkey bars at the playground.  It was so sad to see my daughter in so much pain.  They had to put her under anesthetic and that was so hard to watch.  After about 20 minutes of manipulation she was casted and waking up.  Today she still has a cast on but hope to get it off on Thursday.

Now that i actually have a bit of spare time with my daughter in all day kindergarten and my son in preschool two days a week, i get two hours to myself.  So i decided to do some cleaning.  I finally got the dinning room table cleaned and cleared off and made a Thanksgiving center piece.

I used  dried hydrangea plants with some fake leaves and some cat tails.  I put a small maple leaf bowl in the center.  I used a metal wire bread basket and turned it upside down on a green ruffled platter. I am finally looking forward to thanksgiving but only for the turkey!  I don't want our beautiful weather to disappear and the rain start.


  1. Lovely centrepiece. Hope your little one feels better soon.

  2. so sorry to hear about your little one!

    your centerpiece is just perfect

  3. Beautiful arrangement!

    I hope your daughter's cast does come off Thursday and that she is all better soon!

  4. Ouch! Hope your daughter is feeling better and gets the cast off as predicted.
    My daughter just started kdg as well. And with my son in fifth grade, it feels so weird to have them gone for such long periods of time.
    It goes fast though! :)

  5. Beautiful centerpiece, hope your little one gets better quickly.

  6. Aww, your poor baby. It is so hard to see our children like this :(
    My daughter had to go through the same thing when she was little, but they never put her under anesthetic, that was so hard on both of us.
    Hope she is all healed up
    Beautiful fall center piece


I love reading all the wonderful message you all leave.
