20 november 2006

Two months later

Two months, 2400gr and 5cm later things are going well. Jamie is sleeping relatively well AND we got more then a meter of snow on the local mountains...

what more can you ask for :)

Winter has started again, Cypress mountain has opened and we picked up our year pass. Hopefully we will be able to get even more skiing done this year then last year.

Although what is winter up the mountain, presents itself as big autumn storms down here. Rain, rain and more rain, and some strong winds. Definitly the end of the indian summer here. The good thing is it leaves loads of big puddles for Robin to jump in. We went the Lynn Canyon 2 days ago, the creek is twice as high as in the summer time. The volume of water going through the canyon and the waterfall is quite amazing.

We also started looking for another house a bit more serious. We defined pretty well what we are looking for. But since we only want to live in a few areas in North Van, the selection is limited. But we are not in a hurry..

Robin and Jamie are getting along pretty well.. Jamie isn't complaining :) Other people told us stories about the older child being unhappy with the new addition to the family. But Robin seem to like Jamie a lot. He likes helping with Jamie, bringing blankies, giving hugs and kisses etc.

Some nice pictures of Jamie(and Robin) at http://gallery.brijn.nu/jamie_6mnd

In a few weeks it's again time for Sinterklaas.. He is again arriving by boat in New Westminster, something we don't want to miss. That part of Dutch haritage we want to pass to Robin and Jamie. In the morning we will celebrate St Klaas via the Internet with Ge-an's parents, then go to the St Klaas arrival, and the next morning with my parents.. MSN is not as good as in real live, but it does work.

Updates on the technical side, I redid Brijn . Nu (for the x-th time since 1999). I now included a direct link to the Video page. I will mainly use DivX from now on, for the movies. You can watch the last movie in the webplayer, or download the older ones. Divx works on Windows, Mac and Linux. So this change was really for our Mac users (you know who you are ;-) )
