Hockey, Hockey and More Hockey! Oh, and some snow. . .

Okay.  So, we're on another two hour delay today after no school last Thursday and Friday.  Getting pretty tired of this weather thing!

We ended up with about 18" of snow from the Thursday storm.  It's a lot of snow. . .and the mounds are huge. .  .but it's going to be 60 by the end of this week!!!!  We're soooo excited!!!

Aidan's travel team is beginning to wrap up the Fall/Winter season.  The Spring season will start in about a month.  They had a tournament in Philadelphia last weekend.  The coaches had them play up a division and warned us ahead of time to expect very lopsided scores and not in our boys favor.  Well, I'm happy to report, our boys played sooo good!!!  They did lose the first three of the four games, but not by much and in fact lead two of the games at the half (2 25 minute periods).  They made those teams really work for the wins.  I really think that they could have won two of the games, too.  But, then the final game they won huge.  11-2.  So, so proud of them!  I can't wait to see how they play next year. . .

 It wasn't all work.  We took the boys. . .both teams. . .all 28 of them!  To Buffalo Wild Wing on Saturday night.  Fun times for everyone.  But, I'm pretty sure I got Glutened. . .they said my salad was gluten free, but some things I've had going on since tell me otherwise. . .But, Aidan had a blast!  We were even able to watch the USA v. Russia hockey game here.  So awesome!!  Although, Aidan was upset.  And I do have to admit I felt bad for Ovie. . .
 The boys love watching other games. . .
and then getting ready.

 They even had the experience of hearing our National Anthem this time. . .we did have to tell a couple of them where our flag was.  : )
 And the Amigos score!!!!!  This line is really good.  They ended up being moved to the first line.  So proud of how they have gelled and really become a force for this team!!
 There seems to be some confusion about what place they came in among the boys.  Of course, we parents think they are absolute winners!!

Aidan is pretty goofy sometimes.

So cool.  Aidan skated over to show his mama his newest medal!!

                   The boys and the coaches.  What a fun team!!  

We were supposed to play Reston again this coming weekend.  However, we have since found out that they will be playing three games on Saturday in Laurel, Maryland for the end of season Jamboree.  It's like the Playoffs.  They have games at 10:00, 11:00 and at 1:00.  It will be a tough day especially since Aidan has a House League game on Friday night and another on Sunday morning (making up for none during Presidents Day weekend).  But, after that, there are only two House League games left for this season and then we will have a couple weeks off until the Spring Travel tryouts on March 24th and 25th.  

Did I mention it pretty much snowed the entire time we were in Philly?  Yeah.  So happy about that.  (she says with absolute total sarcasm)

In other, non-weather and non-hockey related news. . .our couches are being delivered today!!!  Woot! Woot!  Can't wait.  Our family room has not had anything other than the tables for a couple of weeks.  It will be good to have some furniture again.  I am enjoying our Rec Room again, though!  Now to get that Fireplace hooked up. . .

Mom is still not doing well,  We're trying to get her released to go home, but there are so many issues I'm not sure how that's going to work.  

That's about it.  Praying for Spring!!!  Have a great week.
