Highlights of 2005

My 1st part time job (in Canada) during the tax season... my first encounter with discrimination... dealing with Patrick's ADHD... meeting more blogger friends... Patrick's having fun at skiing... our first attempt at tobogganing... getting more hits due to a marathon birthday greeting... Patrick's first communion... celebrating our 4th year in Canada... numerous out of town trips and picnic at the park... trip to 1000 islands with my in-laws... hosting more parties and get-togethers... discovering the wonderful world of digital scrapbooking...

Patricia's 1st scrapbook masterpiece... Patricia's 1st time as flower girl... Patrick's 3rd time as ring/bible bearer... attended our 1st very elegant, very sophisticated "Canadian" wedding... getting our Canadian citizenship... getting our (blue) Canadian passport... currently holding dual citizenship... our 10th wedding anniversary which was celebrated in Sudbury... giving up our PAL mileage to be used by my cousins and in-laws as an early Christmas present... discovering Castpost, a way to share our home videos... the need for diet and exercise for hubby due to a little above normal cholesterol/glucose... getting our own Tony Little Gazelle cross trainer as a Christmas gift from my in-laws... my blog turns 1 year old... finally, completing the 20 photographic images of me.

A total of 158 posts by year end with 6,486 visitors.

Hi, Jo! You and family had such wonderful milestones in 2005! My best wishes to you for 2006!

I read your post about Patrick's ADHD. I really hope there's an improvement as he gets older. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I didn't have any idea about ADHD until I read your post.

Joyeux anniversaire à Patrick! My son Melvyn turns 3 years old come Jan. 10 . :-) Cheers!
