So on this morning, my birthday, I'm just watching the announcement of the members of the Canadian Men's Olympic Hockey Team. Big news here in Canada. The speaker just announced that every Canadian has been waiting for this news. Ha! They certainly don't know my hubby. He could care less. Hockey is about the lowest thing on his totem pole of thoughts. LOL. We just won't tell the guy and dash his perfect dreams. Anyway, I'm excited. LOL.
So anway, Happy Birthday to me! I opened my curtains this morning to an incredible, perfect gift. God saw fit to paint the trees and everything that doesn't move with a beautiful covering of stunning hoar frost. Hoar frost is one of my favorite things ever! I took a few quick pictures through the front window but I think I'll be running down to the lake to take some pictures before the sun comes out and melts it all off. What a perfect birthday gift. If I didn't get anything else today, I'd be very content.
Whoo hoo, I interrupt this regularly scheduled blog post to say a young kid who played on our town's hockey WHL team year before last just got named to the Olympic team! Now that makes it super exciting! Also the captain just named is the husband of the neice of one of the hairdressers at my sister in laws shop. Got that? Always more fun when you actually, sorta, kinda, but not really, know some of the players. LOL. Oh and Sydney Crosby and Jerome Iginla made the team. No surprise there. But definitely a surprise that Crosby was not made the main captain rather than just an alternate captain. Oh well. Do you care or are you more to the leanings of my hubby? LOL. It's my birthday, so you have to humor me. :v)
Anyway, speaking of birthdays, my youngest had hers on Christmas Day. A big 15 this year! Happy Birthday girlie! Unfortunately her birthday ended with a trip to the ER. Poor thing. She didn't even get any birthday cake on her actual birthday. Good thing we celebrated with one side of the family on Christmas Eve.It started the day before with her ear being very sore. It was sore here in the annual "pose in front of the fireplace with the stockings and try to get a decent shot" picture.
When she woke up Christmas Day it was really giving her grief. By the time we finished Christmas Day dinner she was in major pain and her ear was literally swollen shut. Three hours in ER later and mega doses of antibiotics, ear drops and tylenol 3's prescriptions later and she was sent home where she did a lot of this for the next few days:
And that's a wrap for our exciting Christmas. We didn't even get a Christmas family photo.
So now I'm off to take pictures. We'll see you Friday for Friday's Fave Five!
