Part two of my Christmas holiday with mother’s family was a cousin skating party at the Rocky River arena. I haven’t been on skates in years but just like riding a bike, I got on the ice and was zipping around in no time. Before I knew it I had spent almost 3 hours on the ice! I definitely need to go again this year, maybe in Millenium Park. Who wants to go?
Here are the girlies in their skating outfits. There were so many people there that we didn’t even need jackets (or long sleeves)!
Doesn’t she look like the female Waldo? These are the awesome 3-D glasses her dad got when he saw Avatar. I’m pretty sure she didn’t take them off for 2 days. It definitely made her easy to spot on the ice.
After the skating was over we headed over to my cousin’s house for a chili dinner. Her basement is a kid’s dream play room complete with chalkboard wall, stage and costumes! I took full advantage of all the kids goofing around.
This little guy was really excited that everywhere you turned there were cookies and candy canes within his reach. Pretty sure he is polishing off a candy cane in this picture.
I think that the mammoth men call this “jowling”, I’m not sure why but it’s hilarious!
My sister, looking gorgeous as usual.
All he needs is the hat and we’ve got a little Waldo!
