Yesterday we discovered a new little friend living in the maple tree outside our front windows: a little squirrel. The little guy spend ALL day yesterday scurrying back and forth along the branches, collecting whirly-gig maple seed pods and storing them in a hole in the tree trunk. Busy busy! And our cat Luigi spent all afternoon watching him from the window, making little squeaky noises of excitement.
In the evening, we put our carved pumpkin (grown in my parents' backyard in Charlottetown, PEI and brought over on their visit this weekend) out on our front stoop. We probably had about 15 children come by: vampires, princesses, pumpkins, ladybugs and even a gumball machine.
