Welcome 2010

We welcomed in 2010 fondue style with Yvan's sister D, her husband K, Yvan's brother J-G and our good friends C & L.

All I can say was it as F.U.N.

The World Junior Hockey Championships are being hosted where we live...and last night's game was Canada vs. U.S.A so we watched the game while dipping our delicious treats. I am not a big fan of watching sports on t.v. but do like a good match between rivals.
Canada was down 4-2 with 9 minutes left and managed to tie the game...sudden death overtime followed with no score and onto a shoot-out...
...this is what happened while watching the shoot out!

Obviously Canada won the game securing them a spot in the semi-finals.

It was a great way to say Hello to 2010!

New Year's Project - on a bit of whim last night after reading another blog - I have decided to document my year in 2010, The Year of Ade (thanks for that Jackie), by doing my very own little Project 365...what is that you say - well you will have to go here toCheck Spelling find out:

Ranavan's Project 365

I wanted to keep this project separate from our adoption blog because it is a "Year in the life" look back for myself - I will likely cross post from time to time so I hope you don't mind.

If you want to follow along I would be honoured - you will also find the link on the right side of my blog as well.

Wish me luck!

Happy 2010 Rana! I can't wait to see your project 365 unfold (hmm... got me thinking as to what I should challenge myself with this year).

This is the year. The year of changes in our homes. The year of patience needed within our home as we raise our children- not from needing patience to hear if anything is happening.... The year we meet our little ones. This is the year. It must be.

I'm glad you were surrounded by family and friends who love you to ring in the new year.

Man I wish you and hazel lived closer...

Natalie and Chris said...

Happy New Year Rana, looks like it was a good night. I'm looking forward to following both your blogs this year, the year you will hold your son.

Cheers to you and your family.

Happy New Year, Rana!!

Wow, not just a new post but a new blog too - and in WordPress! I can't wait to see you posting pictures with Ade on that blog.

I'm so excited to see how 2010 unfolds for you. And I love your dress!

Jennifer said...

I've thought about doing 365 project, but then heard of 52 project, which is best of the week photo-just cuz sometimes my life can be DULL! Good luck, I'll be popping in watching it unfold! Are you going to make a Blurb book with everything in it at the end?

Rana and Yvan said...

Hey Jennifer - welcome and yes be sure to pop by other blog to see the 365 challenge unfold - I am hoping at the end of it all to get a nice little book done with the year's events :)

Chad, Laura and Sara said...

Good times with good friends - can't get better then that. BTW, love the dress!

Praying for so many wishes to come true this new year...


Janice said...

Mmmmm... I love fondu. We started a family tradition last year with the kids - fondue on Christmas Eve. Their favorite is the chocolate fondue for dessert of course.

Sure looked like a fun night. Happy New Year.
