The Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous wrapped up this weekend. It's a fantastic winter festival full of contests, events and people dressing up in gold-rush-inspired costumes.
The weather over the weekend was too warm for the snow sculptors' liking, but Axel and I thought it was fantastic for walking around Shipyards Park and enjoying the sights. Axel said his first word, "dog", last week and he got lots of practice pointing out all the dogs in the park.
We've settled in for winter here in Whitehorse, under a beautiful blanket of fresh snow.
People are already preparing for Christmas, so I figured I should get around to sharing some Halloween photos.
Chris, Axel and I all got sick with a bad stomach flu shortly after Axel's party, so we ended up scrapping our plans for epic costumes this year. Fortunately, there's no shortage of costumes around here, so we were still able to dress up (in multiple outfits!)
On the big night, we all dressed in matching flight suits and aviator sunglasses, for a whole family of Top Guns.
First I clean off the cans and remove some of the paint, then I trace and cut out the heart shaped petals before bending and attaching them to a wire stem. I get about 1 flower per can and while it does take some time, it's a good way to keep my fingers busy while we're enjoying netflix.
