Fell asleep for about a month there. Here's some of our recent happenings... Dog turned ONE today. Yeah dog!!!
Effie painting her skull...
Effie as a Nija:

Effie's halloween gang - the teens and a multi-holed Charlie Brown ghost (Noah). Ferg said no thanks to this year's festivities...
Effie and Amy went as comic book characters:
Kiley and Silas came up from the States to join Effie, Matt and Amy for some serious teen hanging:
These are strange teenagers. They don't eat a whole lot, they don't make much of a mess and they offer to rake leaves...
They also spent an evening perfecting the can n' string phone:
Kiley and Effie with quite possibly the ugliest witch house ever crafted:
The hunt tradition continues... Matt was trying to be the killjoy and tell us he's done too many hunts at our place. But after 24 hours of starving him he finally came around and agreed to hide some items for newcomers Kiley and Silas:
Yes, he's a tall laddie!

The gang:
Super Bonus Photos... Here's a picture of Matt:
He belongs to this lady:
Here's me, a wheelbarrow and a dead deer:
You're welcome.

Here's a pic from a recent round of Pathfinder, the somewhat dungeon and dragonsy (so I am told) role-playing game that is especially enjoyed by the little fella in the monk outfit. Though here I think he's being more jedi-type warrior than monk. But I really have no clue what's going on...

I suppose I could learn more about this game but I only have so much space in my brain and its already filled with proper board games I know and enjoy like Dixit and Hedbandz and so on. Not "and so on".. that's it actually.

To play Pathfinder the right way you require loads of people. So to avoid having to dress up as someone with far too many consonants in their name in hopes of upping the numbers, I've taken to recruiting ..

Camouflage Fail

Effie finds it hard to hide in a tree these days...

Actually that was part of a greater scavenger hunt for Ferg's b'day:
Noah and a tiny bit of Ferg infringe upon "Team Girl Power PLUS Matt" (Effie, Aiya, Matt, Frankie)
