I generally don't advertise my own blog here, but head over to This Blog IsA Typo because I've just posted lots of great stuff, like my favourite albums of 2008, and our favourite pictures of 2008. And if you've already looked at these posts, I've just added a couple of polls about them. I'd love to hear what your favourites from last year are!
Ok, I want some input! Click below to take my Christmas Holiday Food Survey. It should only take you a few minutes to get through the five questions on food and treats for the holidays. I'll gather all the data and in a future post let you all know results!

The Festival of Trees is an event where a bunch of people and companies decorate trees, gingerbread houses, door hangings, etc. They also have various performances and a bunch of activities for kids. We try to take Bailey each year and this year I got to do it. The money raised goes to the university hospital, so every year they have a section to show kids how things work in the hospital. The best part of this area is the finger casts they'll give everyone. Here's Bailey and I showing off ours.
We also decorated small christmas trees, santa hats and a picture frame; had a hot chocolate and cookie treat; wrote a letter to Santa and Bailey did some Christmas shopping in a kids only shopping area. Here's a few more pictures.
Just a note on the last picture, that is my letter to Santa. I wrote with my left hand to make Santa think that I was little younger. Now that I think about it I don't think Santa will be fooled, after all he knows all. Well the letter is still relevant.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

Kyle Wursten joined the family early, early this morning - at about 2:00 am. Baby is doing very well, and I understand he's very cute. He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and was 20 inches, which makes him Jamie's tallest baby!
Jamie had a little trouble recovering, (she said the bleeding didn't stop as soon as everyone would have liked) but she said that she's fine, they're just going to keep her at the hospital for a bit to make sure everything's ok.
So, no other great news. We had a great halloween. Bailey is at the age when it's just very fun. We had fantastic weather, so she was able to trick or treat for HOURS. Thank goodness she had several adults to take turns with her. Unforuantely, there was a tiny bit of snow today. Luckily none of it stuck, although Bailey would like it to snow, as then she knows her birthday is getting closer.
Are you all happy about the election results? I think the US election got more coverage up here than the Canadian election, I feel like I've been in the thick of two elections.
Well, hope you are all doing well. Jamie, have you had your baby yet?!

"...majority of the United States Congress, whose members understand that their main job, their highest calling, their truest democratic function, is to take money from other states and funnel it to their own. What greater homage to the Founding Fathers and the men who froze at Valley Forge could there be than a civic center in Tulsa paid for by the taxpayers of Massachusetts?"
Make sure and vote next Tuesday

Ok so I know the trip was over a month ago but I just got my pictures transfered onto my computer so I thought I would share some of them with you and give you my take on the trip.
Well as I'm sure you all know it was me, my parents and Grandma and Grandpa. My parents and I arrived in the big apple early Sunday morning, extremely tired (you try sleeping over night, on a couple chairs, in the middle of an airport cafeteria with a beach towel as your blanket) but really excited. Since we couldn't get into our hotel we became wanderers in Central Park.
We did eventually get to the hotel, and get to sleep, then on Monday the sight seeing began. We did the uptown tour where we saw the temple and many museums.
Then came the downtown tour with the Chrysler Building,
a stop at the Empire State Building,
and of course Lady Liberty herself.
We also went on a night tour and to see the show "Wicked" on Broadway, but for me the highlight of the trip came on Wednesday when Grandpa and I left Flushing Meadows early to go to a taping of the Colbert Report.
I'll admit I was a little worried about taking Grandpa since he's never seen the show but he enjoyed it and I was on the biggest high. I don't think I could have had a better time, we were sitting on the front row, audience left, really close to Stephen's desk. He even noticed me wearing my Colbert sweatshirt and commented on it, to me during one of the commercial breaks. I could have gone home right then and been happy but there was still so much more to do.
Two days worth of Tennis. We got to see a lot of top tier players, we had great seats, and we even got to experience a small rain delay which delayed game play and we were watching tennis till 2am. It was a true US Open experience.
So needless to say by Saturday we were a little tire but we still had one last piece of Americana History to visit. Of course I'm talking about Yankee Stadium.
The day was really hot but the game was really good. I have never been to a baseball game with so many people and with so much energy. It was awesome. After the game we just had the rest of the day to enjoy the city. We ate at Lindy's (famous Cheesecake) and sat outside and did some final shopping.
Packing that night was one of the most arduous tasks I have every had to do but I had a great time. I definitely want to go back
so we'll have to see. If anyone is looking for a travel companion, you know where I am. Till next time...

One of the funnest things is -- she has this green frog necklace that she loves. She wanted to wear it to the dance, but, well, it didn't go so well with the dress. So she attached it to the base of her tiara and she had a little green frog in her hair all nice. It was cute. I wish I had a picture...
