Trees at the Gardner Museum




Simon and Gramma went to see the "12 Trees of Christmas" at the Gardner on Tuesday. The trees were fun, and very lovely, but Simon REALLY wanted to see "all the kids" who were coming to see the trees. Very social, that boy!

today's blog

hmmm.  Last week ... it snowed some but other than that not much happened really.  Saturday we went to Canadian tire and Old Navy.  Yesterday Corinne made some yummy chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies. Then the Lees came by and Samantha and Julia wound Simon up for a couple of hours till we had some Crepes.

Oh ya better watch out...Santa Claus is Comin' to Town

The Queen's Band is approaching. Simon always asks for them to play "oil thigh" which is the Galic Queen's fight song that he knows since the Queen's UofT football game. they play the song after every touch-down and Queen's scored 54 points so there was much opportunity to learn it!



A cool but sunny day was perfect weather for it.

There he is!

The Gingko tree leaves in Queen's park made a lovely (although smelly) backdrop for pictures.

the maple leaves were a better choice for these shots.A good time had by all.

First Haircut for Simon

After the Santa Clause parade we took Simon to a special kids haircutter for a special kid's haircut.Here's the before in his chair of choice, the Spiderman speedboat.

He seems to be enjoying it!


The stylist said she had rarely had such a good client, especially for a first cut!

Admiring the new look

Mom, Grandma, and friend (aunti) Zara admire the after look.

At the end of MY rainbowSSSS are my darlings
We were on the way to Toronto to visit and no only was there one complete rainbow but TWO!
great to stop and enjoy the miracles we see and to celebrate life with family.

Fred WHO?

Fiona jumped for joy as she and her classmates enjoyed FRED PENNER - 25 year veteran Canadian Children's performer. Mom caught up with Fred before the show, where he gave her some great help on the CD Moppet project she's working on.

Halloween Night

Chloe's First Halloween outing. Playing the clown...



It's not an alligator (as thought by a couple of the more myopic people shelling out). Not a Pterodactyl (as closely guessed by generations who are familar with the Flintstone's Pterodactyl Airlines). It's a Pteranodon of course.


A Great homemade costume by mom with a little sewing help from Grandma.

Checking out the booty. We went along with the Lee girls (Vampire and Pipi).
