King Pig thinks he can make the sheep do whatever he wants, but he can’t make them like him. He doesn’t understand it. Why don’t the sheep adore him like they should? The bossy King thinks he is doing everything he should to endear himself to his subjects, but when a small voice suggests that he should try being nice, he has to rethink his attitude.

Medea reads for us her first paragraph – she got an ‘A’ on it and it’s about Tanit.
Tanit and I sat down to write a letter to Santa. It’s very close to Christmas but there is lots of time to get this letter to Santa’s elves and workshop. Tanit wants a lot of things… And she’s been a bit naughty this year… We will have to see what Santa will bring her….
Tanit reads us her letter to Santa!
Medea shares her understanding of Remembrance Day today during dinner.
It’s just before dinner and Tanit walks us through her “Remembering Day” activities today at her school.
I noticed Tanit working in her office on some letters with some stamps. I asked her what she was doing….
We were looking at some books today and Tanit wanted to tell us some of her new French words and numbers. It is awesome how much she has learned in just two months!
On this year’s visit to Brantwood Farms to go pumpkin picking, Medea visited the haunted house. Here she tells of her visit…
Every year when we take the wagon ride to the pumpkin patch we stop at the Enchanted Forest to find the faces in the trees. Here is our driver explaining what we need to find….
This explains Tanit’s peanut butter crown which is known as her Thanksgiving crown. She is thankful for her family, her dogs and the cat.
This is Tanit’s recounting of her first day of school and activities that she did as we walk towards Gymmies which is only two minutes away.
Tonight Tanit decided to read me her favourite book as of late… The Gruffalo (By Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler)! This read is so sweet – it captures it just right.
Part 2 of our Christmas tree hunting extravaganza from Dec. 9th, 2012. In this portion, Medea leads a carcert of Christmas tunage. We had some difficulty remembering “Frosty the Snowman” in its entirety so I looked it up on the Googles with my phone. Here, Medea sings along by reading the song lyrics. I don’t think that it recorded “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” but that was in their too. The funny part about that is that the slideshow Medea found to follow along with was ridiculously long. She didn’t think it was ever going to end:-)
On Sunday, Dec.9th, we headed out for our annual Christmas Tree picking adventure. I decided to be ridiculously silly and podcast the adventure. This is the first if two parts. When we arrived at Wills Christmas Tree farm I switched to the video camera.
We started our adventure by stopping at Tim Hortons for some drinks to go with our “carnik” lunch!
