My husband had the bright idea to take the boys ice skating yesterday. For whatever reason, he asked if I would come along. I hate cold weather sports. I can't ice skate. I am counting down the days until we abandon our children to their respective Illinois universities and head to Texas, Florida, or Arizona.
Yet in shooting this footage of Joey learning to skate, I now feel confident that he is most certainly my child. Look at the angry arm flap as his brother literally skates circles around him:
So after a couple of hours of near hypothermia, we headed home. Everyone in the minivan was in a good mood except yours truly, who was trying to figure out how her socks got wet.
Anyway, everything shifted when I checked the mail and found a package addressed to me. You know I'm a present junkie, right? It was from Canada! Exotic! Inside, I found two awesome home-made Star Wars ornaments from Skwishee over at Just a Mum. The boys fought over who could put them on the tree. I tried explaining to my husband again what a blog is and where Skwishee came from.
Why I didn't start blogging years ago, I'll never know. They never told me about the prizes. But pass it along: there are prizes!
Merry Christmas, blogosphere! You have given me more than you'll ever know! And thank you, Skwishee!!
