Let's go people, my bag is packed and ready. "Where are you going Malcolm?" "Out".

Hold on Dad, I'm making a phone call to Elmo. I'll talk to you later.

It's me.

Joseph had a sleep-over at our house on the weekend.

more pics from this past week...

Malcolm's new shoes. He's got some little feet, doesn't he?

An ad for Glosettes if I've ever seen one. The pic was taken at Grandpa's store in Vancouver.

Good old Lane. Lane managed to make his way to the airport to pick up Roger despite the chilly temperatures and blowing snow. Roger said that it was -11 when he got in, brrrr.

Roger's trip to the red mile was a bit dissapointing, but here's some Calgary fans whooping it up! Too bad for their loss, maybe next year!

Roger's hotel in Calgary.

Ahi Tuna Sliders at the Metropolitan Grill in Calgary. The dish was quite tasty, too bad it took 25 minutes for the entrees to arrive. Hockey pool money well spent.

Good bye snowy and cold Calgary, hello warm and sunny Vancouver.

Almost every evening we go on a family walk (as long as it's not raining). It gives us all a chance to enjoy the longer hours of daylight, explore our new neighbourhood and get some fresh air. Finally, Malcolm has been able to go outside without being completely bundled up. It's crazy needing blankets, toques and mitts in April. We enjoyed some great weather this weekend- hopefully Spring is finalIy hear to stay. It's been too cold and wet for too long.

I'm sorry to say that Malcolm recently had a bit of a setback in the sleeping department. He's been a champion sleeper for months and months, but a couple of weeks ago he woke up in the night crying and upset and then it kept happening. Roger says it's because Malcom is getting more teeth and these ones are bigger so it's painful for the little guy when they break through his gums. But, it seems like things are back on track- he's his happy self again and once again sleeping through the night. Whew....paws crossed that this trend continues....I like my zzzzz's. Here are some recent pictures.

Malcolm's first haircut!

Well, after 17 months, Malcolm finally got his first haircut. Apparently all went quite well considering he's never had his hair cut before. I hear he got to sit in a cool red sportscar and everything. The hairdresser at Mentor salon in Metrotown was very nice and gentle with him. He didn't like wearing the cape, but once they gave him a red lollipop to hold everything went very smoothly. He even had smiles, waves, winks and kisses for everyone on the way out. I hope this doesn't mean that I'm next up for a haircut! Here are some pictures from this milestone event:

Who looks more upset, Tracey or Malcolm?

What happened? Where's my hair?
Hey a red lollipop, whoa cool.

Those Canucks!

They sure are making it hard on themselves. With a loss tonight we have to win our last two games and hope that the Nashville Predators give us some help by losing their games. I've got my little paws crossed along with the rest of the Vancouver fans. Tracey and Roger were visibly dejected after tonight's loss. Let's hope for a better result on Thursday night against the Oilers.
