We had an ever-so-slight weed problem at the side of our house. If you have any dandelions in your yard, we may in fact be responsible for their propagation. Anyhow, we decided to take care of it by laying down a suffocating tarp, and then laying a the remains of a giant hairy mammoth over it. Problem solved! We're now looking for some shade resistant shrubs to spruce up the woolly part of our yard. Any suggestions?

We present to you the fifth (and final) member of our little clan: Gloria the Van. We decided to make the final suburban leap from our small Matrix to a great big van. Grandad's car guide has a review of the Nissan Quest which describes it as a big, comfortable hippopotamus! So we decided to name her Gloria, for the hippo in Madagascar. Now we can travel comfortably for our summer trips (Maine, Stratford) and to other exotic (camping) destinations.

Here is a drawing that Alice coloured this morning for you daddy.
It might look like scribbles to some, but I was so impressed by how she focuses the crayon on each area of the drawing. Notice the plant is red, the watering can is pink, Gabriela is purple (with pale pink lulus) and the circle in the upper corner is green.
Who knew you could be so proud of a few simple lines on a piece of paper!
