Let The Games Begin!

The bags are packed...
The skates laced up...
The skis waxed...
 The sticks taped...
The sleds are polished...
And the blades are sharpened...
(okay, I admit, a triple axel might be a bit difficult with this baby, especially as I only have one...)

I am hoping for some gold.
Some silver.
And some bronze.
Go World!


  1. E N J O Y & J O Y to everyone!!!

    Happy Thoughts and a Happy Valentine's weekend!

  2. Go world? What kind of an American are you???

  3. Go Sweet Bluebird! Go Team! Best to you during the games.

  5. I like that: Go World :)
    Enjoy the Games!

    All the best,

  6. go usa of course!!! very cute post...

  7. We love watching the games! I cannot wait, when I see our winners on their podiums, and hear our national anthem I get all teary eyed. Then they tell the personal stories of things these people overcame to be the level they are and well the water works start! My kids always look to me to see if I've lost it and then... 'mom, are you really crying AGAIN?' I just can't help it. Oh, I should make some special olympic treat for us! Something that can get a little soggy and still taste good... love the post, thanks, Theresa

  8. This was a fun post - you are too creative! Thanks for sharing :)

  9. Great post, so full of excitement. Go World - a beautiful sentiment indeed in today's world. I have a confession though - I may live in Paris but I'm still an American, so I will be cheering on the good old US of A in my heart!

    THank you so much for all your sweet comments, I have come to look forward to your visits and enjoy all your beautiful posts!

    Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's week-end my friend!

  10. Love your creativity.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Sweet dreams.

  11. Yey can't wait! You make it so fun and festive~~


  13. Hi Kate, I like watching the winter games and your right, go world, so exciting for all the young contenders. Happy Valentines day to you and your lovely family. Oh!! by the way, that clock making hubby of mine surprised me with a zip up jacket from Gander mt. for Valentines day, he dosen't do that very often. Really got me off guard on that one. What a sweetie. Smiles & Hugs, Carol

  14. hugs to the world, but i grabbed my bucket drum and jumped in the stands with MS/AC Fan.

    i've joined in yelling, "USA All the way!!! USA all the way!!!" woot woot! LOL.

  15. Love this is crazy here!!! The spirit is overwhelming. Went downtown many people..saw the flame and all the sights...the Olympic village is filled with the colours from all over the world. I am loving it. Off to some events this week. I am soaking it all up and praying for good weather!!!! xoxoxo

  16. Hi Kate,
    What a cute post! I love your gold, silver and bronze. I think any gold, silver or bronze I want to see is from Tiffany ...HaHa :) JK
    I am so saddened by the loss of that poor young man from the Republic of Georgia who lost his life on the practice run on the luge. It breaks my heart every time I think of it and very disturbing replaying that image in my head of it happening. Anyone out there reading this, please say a little prayer for him and his family. That is way too tragic and too soon to leave this earth that way. The ONLY consolation is that he was doing something he loved. RIP to a passionate, Olympic athlete gone way too soon.

    On a lighter note, I hope you are enjoying your Valentines day with the fam. Any more redecorating with the snowboard??? I have to admire her passion. Tell her I said, YOU GO GIRL! I would have and probably did do the same as she at her age...just not with a snowboard. Did I ever tell you about the bill my parents got to repaint my dorm room? Yeah, I painted it...I couldn't resist. It cost my parents to have it painted back to boring white :0 Be thankful, didn't cost you anything!!!!He He
    Have a great Valentine's day!

  17. Hi hunni
    Just popped over to say sorry about the lack of hen house picture's. The weather here has been quite awful. I'll get some as soon as we have a dry day.
