Kerri's 6th art lesson.

Kerri is working on a watercolor project, but it had to be set aside to dry before she could continue.  So with the remainder of the lesson, she made a Pirate's treasure map.

It has all of her favorite things.
Life with Kerri is enjoying art lessons.

Mall shopping.

Kerri: "Mom, I want to go shopping at that store."
Me: "You mean Garbage?"
Kerri: "No mom, look again, it's 'Garage' "
Me: "You mean like in a garage sale?'
(lots of eye rolling ensued).

PS: Daddy saved the day and took us out to a restaurant instead.

Oh, and by the way, she just had to stop and go in to the Justice store.  They should just change the name of that store to Overpriced Glitter.  Seriously, every time I take Kerri's clothes out of the dryer, glitter just goes flying everywhere.  You would think Kerri was a fairy.

Life with Kerri is picking out her own clothes now, and it's all sparkly.

Bear got a boo-boo.

Jade (our cat) took a liking to Kerri's new stuffed polar bear.  She liked it a little too much, and Kerri discovered a hole.  So yesterday after school, I took Kerri back to the Build a Bear store.  They fixed her bear for free!  And they did a much better job than I would have done.

Life with Kerri is beary happy.

It's a long holiday weekend.

Kerri did not have school today, and she also has no school on Monday because it is Thanksgiving here in Canada.

Today we baked pumpkin cookies and pumpkin bread.  I can't believe in just a few days we will be indulging ourselves with turkey and stuffing.  My kitchen is definitely one of the most used rooms in this house.

The weather is definitely getting colder (we finally had to turn on the heater!), and the leaves are changing colors, and falling from the trees.  Autumn in Canada is beautiful!

We always have a lot to be thankful for.

Thank you for following along Life with Kerri.  From our home to yours, we wish you a joyous and peaceful Thanksgiving holiday.

5th art lesson.

Meet "Teddy".
Kerri completed her first watercolor piece.

Kerri's bear painting looks a lot like her own bear that she has had since we adopted her.  It's been sewn up, chewed up, washed and worse for wear....but she still sleeps with it every night.

I think this is my favorite piece so far.

Life with Kerri is looking forward to the next lesson!

Do blondes have more fun?

Not according to Kerri!

Life with Kerri was trying on her Halloween costume.

She's my angel.

Kerri missed three days of school (she is still sick, but not contagious so she is back to school now).  Kerri caught up on all the school work she missed in just an hour.

That left her plenty of time to play outside, and decide what she wants to be for Halloween.  So after perusing a costume catalog, she picked her outfit.

Kerri is going to be a blonde haired angel with wings and a halo.

Her daddy said: "That's SO not Kerri!"  And Kerri agreed.

I told Daddy we would have an extra halo, and he could wear it when he takes Kerri trick or treating. Kerri quickly added that he would be her Guardian angel.

Life with Kerri is looking forward to Halloween.
