Extra Large Hockey Sock

Those moms who spend time in a hockey rink know how cold it can be. To keep myself warm during those practices and games, I crocheted a blanket the colors of Brandons hockey team. As I was making the blanket I was approached by a few parents who thought the blanket was awesome! After I was done making it I asked Brandon how he liked it. Brandon's reply was "It looks like an extra large hockey sock." Very cute answer!

Time for Turkey...

Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving. November is going by so fast. This Thanksgiving we are spending it with Todd's family. (About 15 people getting together). Todd's parents get a fresh turkey from a local butcher. Todd and Zachary like going to the local football game. Chad makes pumpkin pies with his 5 year old step-daughter. I always love making the bread stuffing from my grandfathers reciepe. My Poppop passed away a few years ago so although I blame the onions for tears, I think it's also a bit of missing him.

Thanksgiving weekend will be a busy one because Brandon has a hockey tournament. That means at least six games and a skills competition shoved into a three day time period. The boys are used to playing two games in one weekend. So they will be exhausted and I am sure my throat will be sore from cheering!

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Ahren and Mommy


This is a picture of me and my 20 year old son. I can remember when he was a baby and I would rock him to sleep. How the time flys!
