Another great weekend!

Busy but great! Friday night Tommy got to spend the night at a hockey friend's house. They went to the Spirit game and he got to ride on the Zamboni, then he was picked in the crowd as the "Kid of the Game." He got a Spirit prize pack which included a warm-up jersey so that was cool. He said it was the best day of his life. Joe, Austin, and I had a great dinner at Genji's and then went shopping for outfits for the $100 dinner fund raiser for school last night.

Speaking of which it was a tropical theme and everyone wore Hawaiian garb. There was a live band and they have a few 50/50 drawings and lots of giveaways and such. Joe & I won about $360 in two 50/50's and the regular drawing they have. They sell 125 tickets and then draw balls, the last ball drawn wins $3000. We were number 115 winning us $50, so close. It was a late night as we closed The Rocket after the dance, which brings us to today.

Tommy had his fastest skater finals this morning and HE WON!!! He cut his time by over 1/2 a second which is a lot in skating terms. He got to skate during the 1st intermission showing off his skills and then during the 2nd intermission all the finalists got to go on the ice and get their medals. We are so proud of him! Tony & Shane also did great both getting silver medals in their events. Our good camera lens is in for repair so I didn't get any action shots. Here is a nice pic of the kids with Steagle Colbeagle the eagle.

If you are familiar with Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report you have probably seen him on his show.

And also, yesterday Tommy's team won their 1st playoff game. It was another come from behind win. We're quite the 3rd period team. Makes me a nervous wreck though.

So as you can see the Papesh's had another successful weekend. I think we should have played the lottery as everything is going in our flavor. I better knock on wood real quick! I hope your weekend was just as great.

Hello Sherri! I don't know of the Becky and Jeremy you speak of. You'll probably tell me and I'll go "duh" but for now I have not a clue who you are talking about.
