POD: Watching hockey


Today we headed to dinner with Nana and Papa,  while there I captured this this picture of Violet as she watched the leafs game.  It was great to see her interest,  though at home she never wants to sit and watch with me.  Of course as a father I question if raising her a leaf fan is really the best thing for her.  Can I really set her up for a life filled with  that kind of disappointment.

POD: Hanging with Jacob

I captured tonight’s picture while waiting for Melissa and Violet. So it was just me and the boy having a little Minecraft time.

POD: Chocolaty Goodness


It’s the first of november and while it’s a very busy month, the first always means treat day. so today I thought I’d share a close up picture of the kids chocolate haul.

POD: A Great Night for Trick or Treating


Tonight was a great night for the kids to go out Trick or Treating. It’s the first time in years that it wasn’t raining, brutally cold, or both. It was great watching the kids go from house to house, collecting their mounds of candy. 

POD: Halloween Dress Down Day


While I wanted the kids to go to school today dressed as Catholic school children, they insisted on wearing their costumes.

POD: Bundling up for the coming cold

With Winter fast approaching, it was time for our little man to get a new coat. Here is him trying it on for the first time.

POD: Violet Draws the Family

Today there was an Art show at the kid’s school. While I didn’t get a chance to be there, Melissa was and captured this work of art from my little diva.

POD: Violet’s Bat

Today I show off some of Violet’s artwork. It seems like a friendly bat… well maybe not. Just look at its teeth.

POD: Link


Tonight we headed the kids school for their Halloween Dance.  But kids were excited to be there with their friends.  While I tried to get a picture of Violet and her friends non of them turned out so enjoy this one of Link…  I mean Jacob.

POD: Window Shopping at the Lego Store


Today I had the opportunity to take the kids into the Lego store, one of their favourite places to go. With Christmas fast approaching I took the opportunity to see the different sets of Lego they were interesting. Who knows, may some of it will be under the tree for them on Christmas morning. Jacob seems really interested in the Minecraft Lego, though as he pointed out to his Nan, having pre-designed sets isn’t what Minecraft is about. Of course I remember when pre-designed set wasn’t what Lego was about either.
