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!!

First Snow of the year

Daddy took the kids out to play in the first snow of the year. Ignore Samantha's sneakers, I bought her snow boots that day! Dominic's first boots were a size 7 so Samantha (who's a size 5) needed her own pair.

Enjoying the weather

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.

Party Time

Dominic's 3rd birthday party was on the 25th. Samantha had a great time with everyone around although as typical she was pretty quiet around all the people. It's hard to convince people she's a chatter box when it's just us!
