Happy New Year to You All.
I have been traveling since December 26th, so I wasn't able to post my favorite reads of 2013. I have been in Canada for the Wayne Gretzky hockey tournament. My son's team lost in the second rounds of the playoffs - to make it to the playoffs is huge for a USA team in Canada! We had a blast and was very proud of him and the whole team.
After the tournament the kids and I headed to Michigan to see my family. It was great seeing my siblings and nieces and nephews. My son and I were lucky enough to go the Winter Classic (go Wings!).
We said we would do it all over again (after I thaw)!

We drove home yesterday in the snow. During our last hour, the Governor of NY declared our area in a state of emergency and we were suppose to be getting another 6 inches on top of the 14 we got in the past two days. The temperature with wind chill was -20 (you read it right, negative 20). I took 11 hours, which is double the normal driving time. We saw over 50 cars/trucks off the road, a 15 car pile up on the other side of the road, a 4 car pile up right in front of us, which we were thankful to miss it (barely). It was nuts. The road were actually the best in NY. I am just very thankful we made it home safely.
