Weekend Recap

Friday we had a bit of snow so the kids were dismissed from school early (and the Sadie Hawkins dance was cancelled as well). KJ, of course, couldn't wait to get out there and play (we don't have a sled so KJ goes down our front hill ghetto style....with a cardboard box). That kid loves the snow. Cosmo really needs to take her out to our friends in Breckenridge, CO and get some skiing and snowboarding lessons. She stayed outside on Friday until it got dark and I had to call her in.

Saturday was a crazy day....Cosmo had lax practice in the morning and then met with some of the team dads to finalize some upcoming travel plans.

T had to be at the High School by 1:30 PM to start getting ready for the pageant. One of the other girls missed the rehearsal on Thursday night so T was asked to teach her the opening number. The pageant was really a lot of fun. KJ & I had a great time but I think Cosmo wanted to pluck his eyeballs out. It was very, very warm in the theater and he had a terrible headache (probably from having too many beers at lunch w/ the other lax dads). T did great! We were very, very proud of her. She really rocked the opening number (she had to wear jeans and a white t-shirt and she wore her cowboy boots to mix it up a bit) and she answered her interview question perfectly. They asked her about her favorite lacrosse moment and she said it was when her all-star team won the national championship in Tampa and how it was a great moment because they all worked so hard! I had a good time at the pageant because T was older and I didn't need to run to the back to help her get into her dress or help her with her hair/make-up. I don't think I would be a very good pageant mom if she was younger and I had to constantly help her.
Immediately after the pageant we rushed over to the 5th Annual Lax Auction and had such a good time! I look forward to this event every year and it's a nice chance to meet some of the new parents. We had a lot of really great donations this year....lots of local restaurant gift cards, some spa days, a couple of over night stays at Ross Bridge with breakfast for 2 the next morning, some golf clubs, some sports memorabilia, a digital photo frame, and an MP3 player just to name a few. I bid on and won a sock monkey for KJ (she LOVES sock monkeys and has slippers and a nightgown to match so it was a silly little gift). I also came home with a beautiful lemonade's a ceramic blue pitcher, 4 tumblers, lemonade mix, lemon and white chocolate chip cookies and it's all on a pretty wooden tray. I also won a 7-piece ceramic popcorn bowl set and a candle set.

So it's Winter Olympics time! I thought the opening ceremonies were amazing. KD Lang was wonderful and I loved it when the guy came through the Olympic rings. My favorite part of the night, however, was when the whales swam across the stadium floor.
