BlogNew York City!
On Tuesday we took the train into New York City. We left the house at around 8.15 and Keith dropped us off at the station in New Haven. The train was 90 minutes and it was a time to snooze and just enjoy the relaxation, and of course people watch the commuters.

On Monday, we got up and chilled for a bit. We wanted to make a plan for the following day when we were to catch the train to New York. Also, the fire was going and it was just so nice to sit there and relax. We were all very tired from the long trip the day before.

For the past six weeks I have been stuck at home, unable to drive. The reasons for this inability to drive are long winded bureaucratic bumbling involving the insurance company and lack of an Ontario drivers' license which I won't go into details about.

BlogDay Lake at the Lake
Yesterday was such a lovely day, it was 14 degrees here (spring has sprung I think) and Jenna's day off so her, Jesse and I went down and spent the day by the lake. We found a lovely sheltered spot on the edge of the lake where we could sit back and enjoy the sun.

BlogWork Visa and Job Secured
Today we went to the border where Andy was granted a work visa. Turns out that in his professional he is eligible for an exemption to some of the bureaucratic stuff so it was quick and easy - ha ha (Jesse didn't think so). Jenna also got her work visa sorted so we can all stay. The only down side was that they refused to give me one (oh dear, how sad).

Yesterday we went ice skating. It was fun and much easier than we thought it would be. Our friend Mike took us to Nathan Phillips Park. Once we got our skates on we managed to stand (a feat all of it's own) then it was onto the ice - gosh that step down onto the ice seemed very high!

Well, it's Boxing Day in Canada and I'm exhausted. Not that we did a great deal for Christmas but there seemed to be such a rush leading up to it. I think everyone in the Greater Toronto Area left their Christmas shopping till the last minute - me included.

BlogThe Room Was Filled With Miniature Michael Jacksons
Today was Northstar Montessori's Winter Concert - a Tribute to the King of Pop. I tell you, it was simply an overdoes of cuteness. They started with the toddlers and went to Junior High.

BlogDressed for the Snow
This morning awoke to more snow (surprised?). It was different today though as it's not raining, just light fluffy snow. Much more dangerous on the roads this morning as there's a layer of ice under the snow. Not sure I'm happy to drive today. I guess I'll have to get used to it. Where's the summer when you need it.

After many hours of sweat and some tears the fashion show that Jenna has been working towards was yesterday. She put in five outfits. The brief was to design a collection for the modern working woman - what's that? She used mostly second hand clothing which she reconditioned with an outstanding result.

It's Monday after Halloween and I must say it's been a very interesting couple of days. It all started on Friday when we collected Jesse from school. His communication bag (where his book is kept that tells us what he gets up to at school) was filled to the brim, not with books, but with candy.

BlogMarineland & Niagara Falls
Monday was thanksgiving holiday so we decided to take the opportunity to go to Marineland and Niagara. We thought that we would have heaps of time to do everything we wanted but of course ran out of time. What we did do though was have an amazing time. The first thing we did was go to Marineland. It was the last weekend of the season and it was cold. You will see by our clothing and the look on our faces that it was cold.
