Jacky is definitely cranky.  And a momma's girl.  Janet is really into the DVR now.  No need to miss anymore tv.  Xander is going to take his test for the Delta program in 4 days (advanced classes).  I hope he doesn't do his usual silly dance/shrugging shoulders routine.

The baby girl has caught the virus that has been going around.  She now has red eyes, a runny nose, and is generally inconsolable.  She has quite a set of lungs.  I don't think we can stand too much more of this without going crazy.

On the other hand, we finally got a picture of her smiling, which can be found on the family page.

Another halo video up on the halo page.  Our team is not very good.  Xander convinced me to let him play online while I record.  The vid is not edited yet, but will go up soon.

Xander got his first report card today.  On a scale of 1-4, he pretty much got 3s across the board.  He scored 4s with the computer (no surprise there) and with his behavior.  I don't know if I'm disappointed or not.  Its just kindergarten, after all.  He will be taking the test for the Delta program (advanced classes) next week.  Now I'm not so sure how he will do.  He is the second youngest in his grade, which I think is working against him. 

I have also updated the link bar at the top just to give a list of videos and pictures that are available for direct download.

Well, after giving it some thought, I really don't know what to do with the front page of this site.  So right now, I'll use it as my blog.  This site was really started as a response to Xander.  He really wanted to make Halo movies (which I thought might be fun, too).  So I bought a Dazzle 150 video capture card.  But now I had these large files, and no one to share them with.  Thus, winstonlee.net came into existence.

The house is coming along, although at a snail's pace.  The first guy to do the construction was seriously incompetent.  I'm just looking forward to having a place to lie down and watch tv.  That way, when Xander wakes up at 6:30 on the weekend I can put him in front of the tv and sleep for another 30 minutes.

About 15 inches of snow.  Spent 3 hours shoveling.  My hands are like claws now.  Janet also helped to shovel.

Jumbo Jac Jac is quite the momma's girl.  I am unable to comfort her.  On the other hand, breast feeding has definitely strengthened Janet's bond with her.

Jacky is quite cranky.  I believe she picked up a little virus, as Xander's nose is also quite runny. 

Multimedia updates:  Xander singing with his classmates (kind of far away), and Jacky singing a tune of her own.  Also some old ones of Xander, which most of you have probably seen: Xander on a trapeze, skiing, and doing a crazy dance.
