Today was Cole's 'friend' party. Unfortunately 2 of his friends cancelled at the last second but they will pop in over the next week to visit. Cole was a little disappointed but his day went so well that his disappointment disappeared rather quickly!

Back in September I took a little trip out to Calgary, Alberta. It was my first trip within Canada and loved every single second that took me from Toronto to Calgary and back. Every second except when I had found out that my bag which housed my digital SLR, digital point & shoot, and my mobile phone had been taken from my parents hotel room. I learned of this news on the morning I was due to return back to Toronto, all of my 800 or so pictures of my trip were gone.

Cole's Nanny & Papa came down to visit for the night last night to be with Cole in celebrating his birthday, a little earlier than his actual birthday but they are busy over the next few weekends. We had French Onion soup for starters, at Cole's request, it's his favorite appetizer. Followed by Rainbow Trout and baked Potatoes :) MMmmm, sometimes I surprise myself :)

What strikes me about Barack Obama is not so much his liberalism,
which like JFK's is moderate and rather centrist, it's his
quiet depth of his spirituality. To me, despite whatever flaws or lacks
one sees in his resume, the sincerity and warmth of his spiritual side is a
breath of fresh air on the political landscape. We need the other types, the
doubters and hard-headed wits and critics. But after so much coolness toward
matters of the heart, how represhing to hear the word faith spoken with so
much appreciation from a candidate's lips.

Halloween has finally come and gone. The boys, especially Chad, were so excited about trick or treating. Our original plans were to dress up in costume, go see a scary movie at the theatre and then come home to find treats throughout the house. These plans changed several times the week of Halloween. Chad really wanted to go out trick or treating, yet Cole wanted to see the movie. To make everyone happy we decided to stay close to home, go trick or treating and then come home & watch a movie. It all worked out :)
