Another Olympics related story: a few weeks ago the USA sweaters were revealed on the Today show. I'm not gonna lie, when I saw them I thought they were joking. I thought maybe they were a funny play off of ugly Christmas sweaters since those are so popular these days? When I realized they were in fact the real thing I felt kind of badly. Last night when USA walked out, David made some sort gagging/choking/chuckling noise and said, "What on earth are they wearing? They look like ugly Christmas sweaters." So either both David and I have extremely poor fashion taste, or the USA outfits were a little strange. On the positive side, come Christmas they can just applique a Christmas tree under one of those white stars and they will be set for a festive holiday outfit.
I guess those are my only thoughts. I fell asleep before Russia came out but I looked up their outfits this morning. They seemed pretty cool. I knitted one and a half dishcloths while watching the show (before falling asleep). I'm trying to go through all my yarn and get it knitted up before we move again in a few months. So far I've done, like, 8 dishcloths and a big, white, infinity scarf. Knitting and the Winter Olympics go together quite well.
We got more snow yesterday and last night and are planning on getting more today, so David surprised us by taking today off. Isn't that fantastic?! This type of fun snow doesn't happen all that often and I think it's great that he gets to be here to enjoy it with the kids. Last night he took Daphne sledding on the hill down the block. She cried alligator tears when they had to come back home, so a full day of sledding is definitely on her schedule. We're also making snow ice cream and doing some baking. Maybe we'll be brave and head out to Starbucks. Doesn't it sound like a perfect day?
Now if only I had a USA sweater. I could sew a snowman on mine.
