Woo Hoo! President Obama! Change is coming and I'm thrilled!
America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves - if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?
This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is our time - to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth - that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we cant, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people:
Yes We Can.
Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America!

Last year Samantha got carried around for Halloween, this year she got to collect her own candy! It was a beautiful night and Samantha sort of understood...She mostly tried exchanging the candy in her hand for the candy in the bowl so we had to intercept. She walked most of the way and was in great mood the whole time.
She wanted to carry this candy ALL night!!
The day after Dominic's party we went downtown with Brendan, Kelly, Ethan, Katrina all the kids and Gee and Papa. We had a great time and since it was such a beautiful day we went for a walk with Gee and Papa after lunch. We went to a nice little park by the lake and had fun throwing things into the water.
