Thanksgiving Dinner 2012 with Turkey

My wife cooks turkeys every year for Thanksgiving even though we only have 4 people in our family.

This year, too, we had turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.

They were delicious as always!!  We need to get a turkey dish soon...

Smiling Chihuahuas 2012

My younger chihuahua is very very naughty just like kids.

She is very sneaky and even has sneaky attitudes and smiles.  (smirk)

Tim Horton's Halloween Donuts 2012

Currently, Tim Horton's having these cute Halloween donuts on sale for 1.19 each.

I like the designs (I have seen two types so far.)
They do look cute and colorful with a picture in the middle!

Even though they are just sprinkled chocolate donuts, I will have it for night snack!

Laity Pumpkin Patch (Thanksgiving Weekend) 2012

It is that kind of the year already: Pumpkins, Halloween, Holidays, autumn....

It gives a feeling that a year is going to be over soon...
However!  We have awesome weather for fall this year!

I decided to take my kids to the pumpkin patch in Maple Ridge, BC this year.
I have never been there so I thought it would be great for everyone!

The weather is so good, and with mountain and blue sky, the picture turned out very good.

They have so much pumpkins in the patch, and it looked endless!
They came in all kinds of sizes, I picked a big one with 91 cm diameter. (26 inch)

My kids also had fun with the pumpkin patch.  They had kids area, petty zoos with animals and cartoon boards...etc

They also had a couple of turkeys on display.

Here are the cartoon characters:
Snoopy, charlie brown and pumpkins
Winnie the Pooh
Well, those are good ideas to attract families....
You do need to pay 4 dollars per person for tickets.

They don't have good corn field rides but they do have a small corn maze.

We had a good time, and I hope my kids would remember these times.

Carleton Cards: A Pet is Love Christmas Ornament

I collect lots of ornament from Carleton Cards and Hallmark every year.

Too much...I think but here I bought the first one of the year.
I thought I can put my dogs pictures in this one.

I think I buy too much of these things....

Super Mario Kart Wii: K'Nex

My best friend gave me a gift card for my son's birthday.

I was thinking what to get....because my son is such a mario fan, we decided to get a Mario Kart set from K'Nex. 

Apparently, you need to buy 4 sets to make a giant track.
However, I don't have space, so I am content with a small set anyways.

I bought the beach set, and it came with a cute crab and a motorized toad kart.

I am still debating whether to get other sets because it is not entertaining my two sons as much as I thought....

It is very cute though! (some parts are too small for small kids.)

Old El Paso Taco Dinner Kit

They were giving away free Elso Paso Taco Dinner Kit on the coupon site, in the summer.

We went to get the free taco box, and my wife made the taco dinner:

McDonald's Paul Frank Figure and Calendar

I can't believe it is October already.  A year passes by so fast.

Paul Frank is famous for designing "Julius" the monkey on its fashion lines.

Early September, if people buy happy meals, they can choose one of Paul Frank's stationary for kids.

We got a cute figure and a desk calendar!

I think it is quite cute and in McDonald's standard, well made.
They should be making more of these instead of those rough, cheap, ugly toys.
