As you know, I have moved to Canada with my family this past summer, and I am now for the first time living in Canada, where the rest of my family was born. It is a bit colder than New Zealand, and we have already had snow, which was the first time I have ever experienced it. My dad was hoping to take me out to build snowmen. However, we were pretty busy on that weekend, and then it got pretty windy, so it was a bit too cold. The snow is all gone now, but mom and dad are assuring me that it will return, and we will have lots of time for snowmen before too long. I am all ready for the snow whenever it does get here though, one of the things we did on the weekend it snowed was to get me brand new snow boots and a snow jacket! They are pretty big and puffy; I seem to get lost in them!
Now that we are back in Canada, my sisters and I are excited for Halloween and all of the Candy that comes with it! I am going as a giraffe, I am told each of my other sisters also went as a giraffe in previous Halloweens. I guess it is a Hartlen child right of passage. Anyway, I wasn't too wild about putting the costume on when it came time to go, but it was pretty cold and I was offered some M&M's so I eventually caved. I even put my Giraffe head on! Trick or treating was a lot of fun, I went with Aunt Amanda, Uncle Joel, aunt Amanda's brother Jesse, and his two kids and their cousin, we were quite the little posse. Aunt Amanda's brother Jesse was even dressed up as Batman, he is so silly!
I am nearly five now, and have been to 15 countries with my family. I can now speak two languages, which is pretty useful I think? Aside from that I love colouring, and playing with lego, and my sisters!
