Today was a whirl wind of a day up at 5am off to Kamloops for my youngest daughters tournament that actually started the day before but she was sick, watched her game left Kamloops for Sicamose (not sure on that spelling) to pick up my oldest son then back to Kamloops to make it just in time for my daughters last game where she got two goals, MVP and they won the tournament. It was a little cheeky her going in scoring the goals and winning MVP when she was not there on Sat. Then home again and off went all my boys to play hockey my oldest son and husband went to drop in and my other two boys off to the neighbors.
I framed pictures 10 in all tonight for my craft laundry room they are so cute we were sent them from the Internet by e-mail.
I am trying my luck at a hat I am knitting it in quite dainty Mohair I so don't know what I am doing I can not read a pattern so it is sure guess work, I really hope it works I am quite frustrated in my knitting it actually sucks nothing ever turns out. So cross your fingers it will turn out. Well talk to you all tomorrow have a wonderful evening.
This is a very special watch that helps Santa on Christmas Eve

My dad's new toy

This is my dad's new toy I had to laugh when he gets presents he says " I don't need that or What am I going to do with this" well he said nothing of the sort this time I know he really loves it.

Today I jumped in with two feet on the laundry room I have started priming and painting . I really do hate painting I just like the end result. I will post before and after pictures I am really hoping it will turn out lovely. It seems when you start a project you have to mess up the whole house to do it or at least I do. I will just have to keep at it and slowly I will finish it. So with that note I am off to work in the room.

We are enjoying our holiday sleeping in cleaning the house messing the house and doing it all over again. Kids are enjoying their new things, playing hockey outside, sliding down hills, watching movies. The only down fall is my daughter is still sick but my husband is feeling a little better. The weather has been holding steady nothing too dramatic.
I have been making plans for my New Year I am starting on my laundry room/craft room I hope it will be nice when it is done. I have 65 lbs pounds of washed Mohair to deal with so that alone will be a big project. I am cutting back on some rabbits but I am not ready to part with my goats I really do love them. So many thoughts swarming through my head.

I zoomed on my two children singing in their concert so I would not get any other child on the blog. School concerts are always so special and they always turn out so wonderful. The next night after this concert we attended a band concert and they played really , really good.

Tonight we finished up a bunch of gifts to give to teachers, friends, bus driver. It was a lot of fun to spend the time putting together things to give tomorrow.

I realized my middle son had to not been in any photo's so just so you know he is not forgotten there he is in the blue sweatshirt. He was rather pleased with himself getting in this photo. These photo's were taken at the arena during a game it was back when my oldest daughter went to her Christmas party.
Tonight we have a Christmas concert at my little kids school, then 3 of the kids have hockey and we have concession duty. Lets hope the snow holds off for a few more days until we can quit traveling and my mom gets home

I am finally unthawing I have sat in the arena from 3pm until 7:50 pm and I am so glad to be home warming up with a cup of tea. Our life is as crazy as ever I think it will be crazy until sat. night then hopefully some down time; I think I will sleep in one day maybe have a day were I do nothing but play I would also like to go and look at Christmas lights.
Today on my way into town I saw a beautiful eagle flying looking for something he was so beautiful it is amazing how graceful he can fly. The kids and I are hoping we will see an eagle on Christmas day when we drive into town to see Grandma.
Have a wonderful night talk to you tomorrow.

Christmas time is approaching very fast and I find it very hard to believe. One more week of school and then a few days of rest I say a few days because hockey does not know to quit and let the kids unwind. We have two tournament over the holidays which I really wish were going to be cancelled. I am all alone everyone is at hockey or at a sleep over so I did a bit of wrapping now I am off to shut this computer down put the puppy to bed and get ready for night. I just received a call from the bus depot that my wool is in from the island so I will go and pick it up tomorrow.

Nothing like sleeping with a 15 pound cat on you. Did you know he was still there in the morning. This is my youngest boy who has just received his card for running 50 miles. He is amazing he really is enjoying all the runs.
