her first suitor

Snow is 11 now. This afternoon, a boy stopped by with some nutty bars. As I took this picture, I told them they kinda look alike. One of them replied, "Yeah, except we are not brother and sister, we are boyfriend and girlfriend."

Snowcones, merengue and waltz :) What ever happened to playdates spending countless hours setting up playmobil and legos???
They laid in the hammock out in the backyard. Maku was nosy enough to follow them around. Marc and I were nosy enough to spy from the back window while chewing on yummy nutty bars.
here is Snow...all smiles hours after the boy left
And here I am...bemused.
I took a snapshot hoping to capture the strangest mix of emotions I was experiencing. This is what I got. Me. Feeling (and looking) 11 years older. *sigh*

hockey happiness is...

...getting to your seat and realizing only a piece of glass separates you from the rink

...cheering, screaming, and doing the wave (it was Capitals vs. Lightning - for those who want to know :P)

...being welcomed in somebody's lap when pucks and players slamming onto the opposite side of the glass where you are sitting terrify you




...and being 10 years old and having a puck land in your lap at your first ever hockey game.

well, actually, it landed on my shin (ow!) then bounced off. i managed to grab it but lost my grip. it then slid across the floor, we struggled with someone who jumped from three rows behind us. after a few seconds of pinching and nudging - wine spilled and camera banged - the puck was ours!

and after the game...

it's this


and this :)

This is Ollie. We adopted him last week. He is a 3 year old maltipoo.
He brings us smiles, giggles, and fleas :)

Welcome to our family, Ollie. We love you :*
