In the photo above you see a photo of my husband's nephew held by Ben Hiebert, one of the 2010 Olympic Gold Medalists. He is on Kevin Martens Curling Team.
In fact my little nephew is holding the gold medal. Ben Hiebert, happens to be a nephew of my sister-in-law Rhonda (my brother's wife), who lives in B.C.. Confused? Well, they are all from Regina, Saskatchewan and my husbands sister, Yvette, works with and is a friend of Ben's girlfriend. That is how they are all connected. They visited my husband's sister Yvette's home, thus the photo op!
This is the little fellow who was visiting us this weekend with his mom, Yvette, he's two and a half. When she showed me this photo, I told her that I had to have it so I could post it on my blog. Because of being connected to Ben, (through Rhonda) we watched all of his curling games at the Olympics over the internet. We have never watched curling before, ever! But, as we watched and listened to the commentator, we gradually began to understand what the throwing and sweeping was all about. It is quite a fascinating and interesting game.
In other news, I won a give away over at A Beach Cottage and this is what I won! A years subscription to the Canadian House and Home Magazine!!! It is a huge, wonderful magazine, thank you Sarah! If you have never visited Sarah's blog, you really ought to, it is so unique and fun! The really sweet thing about it is that she has a giveaway pretty well every week and sometimes more often than that.
We are enjoying unseasonably warm weather here in Manitoba. The normal temp for this time of year is 12 deg. Celcius, it is meant to go to 23 deg. Celcius! Last week was the same, except for one day. Hurray!!!
PS Be sure to come back tomorrow, I have a simple little something to show you that I put together! Something cheap and easy!
