Gone are the days of trying to fit your costume over your snowsuit. [This was a common conundrum growing up in Canada!] This year, we were lucky to have perfect trick-or-treating weather.
Indio was super excited in the weeks leading up to the big night, having picked his costume in September and his pumpkins in early October.
The night before Halloween we carved our largest pumpkin, which wasn't very large. Indio loved planning our Jack O'Lantern's face, but wasn't enthralled with pulling out the guts.

It's hard to believe we've already racked up 5 years worth of pumpkin photos of Indio. Looking back, I couldn't help but compare my boy from his very first pumpkin patch [really just the display at the Amish market in Tribeca, New York, 2009] to the latest installation from a *real* pumpkin patch in Valatie, NY on our way home from Lake Placid.
Have you chosen your Halloween pumpkins yet? What will you carve yours into?

I don't normally post contests on my blog, but this one is dear to my heart.
Emil has been running his company, Fit 4 Life NYC for several years now. He has not strayed from his original goal of helping New York's children lead healthy, active lives. F4L just submitted a wish to Intuit’s Small Business Growing Strong campaign.
Help Emil's organization make a wish come true! Fit 4 Life NYC's mission is to help children in New York City's poorest communities to become active and fit, but most of the children in their programs do not have proper shoes or attire to exercise and play in. In addition, due to the high cost of sports/fitness equipment F4L's classes are taught with little to no equipment.
Click here to vote for Emil and his team: http://bit.ly/11lxQjc [You can vote once a day and you don't have to register for anything!]
F4L would use the prize money to purchase shoes for their neediest kids and new sports equipment for their programs. Thank you for supporting NYC's children.

Because we live in such an urban city, even the tiniest bit of nature mesmerizes us. Last Sunday's sunset was no exception.

This weekend I celebrated my birthday surrounded by love and laughter, the two things I usually wish upon others on their big day. From phone calls and emails to drinks on my birthday eve and brunch on the actual day, my friends and family showered me with wishes of another fabulous year.
It's hard to believe I'm another year older, though I feel more youthful than I did a few years ago. Weird how that happens.

I grew up "celebrating" Easter by eating excessive amounts of chocolate. Emil grew up with a more traditional [Catholic] recognition of the holiday. So far, Indio only knows that there are bunnies and an egg hunt with his cousins, which will be happening later today at his Great Aunt's place.
Yesterday, we introduced a new tradition and dyed eggs for the first time. Indio is quite confused as to why his fingers are still green this morning.

|Happy birthday, my love.|
|This is what I get when I ask for a "smile".|
|Indio was delighted with all the "modern dinosaurs" on the resort|
|Until next time . . .|

Did you hear the news? Google Reader will shortly be defunct.
As I searched for a new reader to compile all the blogs I regularly peruse, I came across Bloglovin', which seems to be great so far. [Maybe even better than Google Reader!] You can easily import all of your Google Reader blogs into Bloglovin' and add new blogs with a quick click of a few buttons.

As I was organizing my Flickr photos on this blustery Monday, I came across this heart-warmer.
While we enjoy the day off for George Washington's Birthday in the States, I am missing my family as they celebrate Family Day in Ontario, Canada.
