Insperational Video

I receive a lot of forwarded e-mails from people, most of them are funny or somewhat entertaining. This is a video that I received in a forward that I thought was very heartwarming. I thought I would post it on my blog for everyone. If you would like this in e-mail format so you can forward it on, just let me know.

The Joys of Hockey

It was my privilege to take our friends the Woodfords to their very first hockey game. Apparently the Hurricanes appreciate me being a fan so much that they sent me my very own Christmas card and some free tickets to a game against the Atlanta Thrashers.

This is the front of the card:

But back to the game... They had a lot of fun. Here is a picture of them at the game:

They ended up losing in overtime, but we all had a lot of fun.

Logan's Christmas

Although Michelle and I didn't get very many Christmas presents, our unborn son Logan cleaned up!

Michelle's brother Mat was kind enough to give us a more generous present. It came in a big box. When we opened that box, there was another box. I thought that this would be some sort of practical joke. It turned out not to be.

When we opened the second box we found lots of pieces. When we put the puzzle together it created this:

Logan also received this wonderful blanket from Aunt Julie.

Overall I think Logan scored.

Just a Little from Santa

Because of the money that we spent on our Secret Santa family, Santa was not left with much for us. So we had a little Christmas, but it was full of joy and I wouldn't have it any other way.

This is Austin's attempt at staying awake, while watching a movie and waiting for Santa.

Then it was Christmas Day and time for presents. Austin was so excited. He got three new games (which he asked to play everyday since).

Michelle and I love this picture. Austin got a train whistle from Nana. Michelle asked him to hold it up so she could see it and get a picture of him with it. That was the result she got.

All in all Christmas was wonderful.
