The road yesterday afternoon. Lots of snow and pretty!

Then last night we heard this loud Craaack! And because of SO much snow, branches falling everywhere. Yesterday morning, a branch hit the patio door in the bedroom and didnt hurt it and last night we go out and see this huge branch!

See how close it is to the car? Even though we are Canadian, it is very fitting that we are thankful this day.

Have a good Thanksgiving, my U.S. friends.

Sarah's reflections of NYC

These are some of our New York pictures. These were all taken by my daughter, Sarah who SAYS she isn't artistic.

I beg to differ...

A structure in Central Park..

This is from an exhibit at the Met.

Aren't these awesome?! Some from a street fair, some from a night we went out to a band and took the tram over the river to Roosevelt Island.

This is the girl in action! At the top of Rockefeller building. See Central park?

This is what she was taking a pic of. St. Pat's Cathedral.

And this one, I just got enlarged to 20x30 and its now on her bedroom wall.

Nope, not artistic at all...:)

I just got home late last night... down at Mom's for the night - watching Sarah in a huge play in a major city. Awesome!

We got back to moms at 1030 and I turned on the TV right away. We are EST and Obama was winning but it was not called yet.
At 11:04 results came in and YES! over 300 seats. What a night.

I stayed up till 1230 watching the speech. Well worth it.

I've heard since then that people in the streets up here! Toronto and Vancouver and people crying and hopeful.

What a difference a day makes.

I wanted to have some pictures - these are some ATC's I did for a swap. I havent got mine back yet. The theme was nature.

Congratulations all my US neighbours and friends. Can't wait to see what comes next.
