Life has been a whirlwind of activity lately. The kids are playing a lot of hockey which usually means driving all over small town Alberta looking for a rink we’ve never been too.
This weekend our club put on their tournament so we spent the weekend working at that while the kids played games. It was also Nicole’s birthday so that meant throwing a few parties. First, there was the party after their last game on Saturday, because that was her real birthday but we couldn’t have a ‘real party’ due to the hockey schedule. Then there was the little party that evening with just the family. Then the next day we played more hockey, and yesterday ( a holiday in Alberta ) we had a ‘real party’ with all her friends from school. Its exhausting to usher in a new year with this kid!!
As usual, the adopted Grandparents came through with the coolest gift ever. Here is one very thrilled 8 year old with her new digital camera!
We already uploaded a hilarious mixture of pictures of her and Grant playing dead and of course, self portraits.
In other news, the long awaited decision came down from the ogres (that would be me and Ron) about the possibility of having a dirt bike for the kids. Poor Grant, he’s been asking me since last summer, ‘have you guys finished thinking about it yet’.
We picked up a beautiful little Yamaha dirt bike but, of course, that is like torture because there is still two months of winter left.
The other night when checking the kids before bed, Ron came and got me to have a look at our son. That kid is so cute. And he really, really loves his helmet!!
