Trick or Treating

Firstly, I'm sorry for not being on here FOREVER but with working 5 days a week, the kids routines, extra curricula activities and life in general, the blog was put a bit on the back burner.  Saying that, we are all well despite the hot and then cold winter like weather.  Thank goodness for reverse cycle air conditioning.

In recent news the kids went trick and treating.  Now, this is not a huge thing here in Australia or for me personally.  In all honesty, the  concept is a challenge for me.  I'm not into the whole scary, the frightening, sugar overload or the commercialism of the event.  I just can't get my head around it but the kids wanted to head on out with some friends and I decided to grasp the community aspect and enjoy time with some neighbours and friends.
By the end of our neighbourhood walk,the kids baskets were full with sugar laden goodies but thankfully they both volunteered giving some to the sugar fairy in exchange for some books and art supplies. Which will be enjoyed over the four day weekend we have ahead of us.

I love living in Melbourne and enjoying two extra days with our family together and having two days off work to celebrate a horse race!!
