Today, it's Milana's turn.

I caught her the other day, playing around with my hat in her PJ's, looking too cute for me not to run for my camera.

Our little girl is so full of beans. I love all her little expressions and she has such a joie de vivre.

It's quite contagious - hard not to giggly when we're around her.

Milana will turn 4 in a few weeks. (Sniff, baby will be can that be?)

She loves music - has to have music playing in the car all the time. Demands it, in fact!

She's always dancing (or falling over her feet) and moving yet can stare as if in a trance when her favorite tv show is on.

Loves to draw, read her little books (the pictures) and follow big sister around .
Oh....follow big sister around is her absolute favorite activity - whether invited or not.

Sunday stuff 015 wm

She has a hard time not touching everything and anything her little hands come in contact with.

And cunning?? Oooo...this little one has got that trait down pat. Scary pat.
Milana is always up for anything. Never says no - it's always "Yah...yippee go"!!

And we just love her to bits.

She just rounds our family off perfectly.

Tuesday....around the world.

PhSho remax,Niki etc 217

Saturday was garden clean-up at our house. It's always a chore I don't enjoy because I see all my beloved plants (who were somewhat neglected this year) dying or going to sleep - and then I know what's coming for the rest of us. (It rhymes with NO.)

However, I usually get a last little thrill with the last of the flowers that have braved the cool nights and the fall breezes. (Doesn't that sound so actual fact the winds have been wicked.)

So as I do each year - I clip off the last bouquet and bring it in and then the clean-up begins. Mad a lot easier and more funner (not a word but it certainly should be!) in the company of my two munchkins. Even Daddy got on board so we made huge progress in short time.

Ergo......mama was happy.

Next day we went for a little drive in the country and stopped a bit.

And a certain little somone thought a fencing lesson was on the program.

And another little somone would have nothing to do with that idea.

A little further down the road we came upon a little farm. In fact the whole area grows all different kinds of cabbages.

I have always loved cabbages - especially the kind that remind me of where fairies live.

I've been so busy lately I completely forgot I had taken these (and a few thousand hundred) pictures a few week ago. (In fact I probably have enough to fill every Friday for a year but I won't do that. who said "whew"?

I'm so glad Dahlia is still so obliging when I'm whipping my camera out. In fact, it's often her idea. And, I've stuck gold TWICE 'cause Milana is pushing her out of the way to get in the shot most times.
Not that there is a lot of "ham" around our house.

This kid really should try out for Circle du Soleil.

Tuesday....Around the World !

This week-end we celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada. And what better way to get in the mood than driving down a country road and visiting a nearby farm.
A pumpkin farm.....
.....with my own li'l punkins.

The leaves are really starting to change color and the weather is all over the place but this long week-end was perfect....almost too warm for October, but we'll take it.
'Cause we know what's coming!

But for now, we're thankful for all the bounty, the rich colours and never-ending variety of fruits and vegetables and flowers.
