Spirit Week

evry year my school has spirit week. This week its from March 4 to 7. I will post a picture of each day.

Monday: Crazy Hair Day

My crazy hair at first

My mom used Colour Rox Hair Chox to make it crazier

Then she looped up some of the ponies to make it even crazier

This is how it looked from the front.  Not as crazy as from the back.

Tuesday: Jersey Day

For Jersey Day I wore my dad's Nipigon Elks jersey.  It was sponsored by my Nana and Papa's slashing company.  The kids on my hockey team said, "You traitor!" because I'm on the Rangers and the Elks beat us in the finals of a tournament.  So I changed into my pink Habs Girl jersey.

Wednesday:  Crazy Hat and/or Glasses Day

On Crazy Hat Day I wore this hat.  It's too small now but I used to wear it all the time.  My Auntie Mary Anne made it for me when I was little.

Thursday:  Pyjama and Gum Day

Everyone got to wear pyjamas and chew gum.  We got the gum from the Alzheimer's Society because we held a Walk for Memories at our school a few weeks ago.  We could also bring a blankie and a stuffie but I forgot.

Winter Carnival was also on this day because it was too cold in February when we were supposed to have it.  My team leader was Max.  My teammates were Sidney, Sammy, Triston, Cody, Alex and Carsyn.  I like being on teams with kids from different grades.  We always do this for special events.  Max kept making us line up in single-file from youngest to oldest.  This was annoying because it took too long.

I wore these pj's that I got on Christmas Eve.
Friday:  Sock Hop and Sundaes

Today we had a sock hop and had sundaes.  I don't have any pictures because I didn't have to wear anything special.  At a sock hop we played a bunch of songs.  One of them was Gangnam Style and we all danced to it.  When we got our sundaes we went back to class.

Spirit Week was fun.  My next post will be about my March Break trip to Duluth.

Hockey Party

on Saturday March 2 I got to go sliding and skating with my hockey team and their families.  We started at the Sprucewood sliding hill and made our way to one of my teammate's house where we went skating.  The party was for the Novice and IP1 teams.  I am on Novice.  We are the Rangers but IP1s are Timbits.  Our hosts were Liam and Quinny.  Liam planned the whole party.

While I was sliding I had hot chocolate and got a ride up the hill behind a snowmobile.  Some people were in competitions for trophies with a chocolate bar in them.  The competitions were for:  most distance, first down the hill, and how far they landed past the jump.  Some of the grown-ups went sliding too.  Triston's mom even took the jump!

When we went back to Liam and Quinny's house there was a skating rink in their garage!  They have to walk across the ice to get into the main part of the garage and that's where you can get your skates on and off.  Liam and Quinny's dad is a trapper so there were some animal skins hanging in their garage.  On their skating rink we played some 3-on-3 hockey games.  My team won the mini tournament.  There was also a skills competition.  One thing they had to do was pull my dad across the ice in a sled.  I wish I had a picture of this. Triston won the skills competition.

There was a bonfire and my hair ended up smelling like smoke!  I had a hot dog cooked over the fire.  It was DELICIOUS!

Here are some pictures from the party:

Here's a sign that Liam made.

Way up at the top!

Way down at the bottom.

My dad is too big for the crazy carpet!

Riding up in the snowmobile.

Me skating on Liam and Quinny's rink.

Warming up for the 3-on-3 games.

Grown-ups enjoy the bonfire.

Cooking some wieners.
Good bye.  This was my hockey party.

Introducing Grace

Hi my name is Grace.  I'm 7.  I'm really excited about starting a blog because I can post things about myself and the things I love.  Some of my favourite things are hockey, dance, Monster High, my family and my dog, Willow.  I have a brother named Matthew.  You can visit his blog at www.magnificentmgm.blogspot.ca.

This is a picture of Matthew and me taken in November 2012.  My mom took it.

I'll see you in my next blog.  I have to do some homework now.
