Finally some good weather!

Well we've finally got a reprieve from the rain and cold. I think the weatherman said it was 13 degrees today. The warm weather gave us all the opportunity to play outside. Here are some pictures from this past weekend. Malcolm had his first taste of street hockey. Oh, we even went by the store to visit grandpa Harry and Annis.

Historic Korean Artifact destroyed.

February 12, 2008
SEOUL (AFP) - A elderly man has confessed to torching South Korea's most treasured historical landmark because he had a grievance over a decade-old land dispute, police said Tuesday.

Riot police were deployed to guard other historic sites in Seoul amid widespread anger and grief at the destruction of Namdaemun gate, a 600-year-old building in the heart of the capital.

Authorities came under fierce attack for failing to safeguard the building or to tackle the Sunday night fire effectively.

"The suspect has confessed all of his criminal acts to police," said Kim Yong-Su, captain of Namdaemun police station, announcing the arrest on Monday evening of a 69-year-old man identified only as Chae.

The family has been sick...

I think Roger got sick first, but about a week after he got it Malcolm came down with some symptoms and Tracey soon followed. Everyone has been feeling better, but not quite 100% yet. This year's Valentine's day was filled with stuffy noses, coughs, aches and pains. Tracey surprised Roger by taking him out to the Canucks game on Thursday night. It was such an entertaining game, too bad that the Canucks lost in overtime.

Malcolm is certainly getting the hang of the walking thing. He's becoming increasingly more confident as each day passes. Here are some pictures from the past few weeks.

helping out around the house?

Malcolm has befriended the dreaded vacuum cleaner. In fact, he can't seem to get enough of that thing. Today he even helped Roger vacuum the house. He's always been quite fascinated with it, the sound, the attachments and perhaps the inner workings of it all. Here is a photo-montage of his efforts around the house. Roger and Tracey hope that it will continue through his teen years. Afterall, who in their right mind would complain if their son wants to chip in and help clean the house. Maybe someone at Dyson will notice?

What is it with glasses, it even makes a baby look smarter? I may need to get some glasses myself.
