You are sooooooo lucky. I just can't wait, the best two weeks of winter are about to begin... (Now if I could only clear my schedule so all I have to do is sit and watch the games for those two weeks, all would be good!) And when I see you on tv, waving to me with your red mittens, I will be jumping up and down yelling hello right back at you! Soak it all up for the rest of us!

The video is extraordinary, Koralee~ Thanks so much for sharing that! It adds to the great anticipation of waiting for the Olympics to start. Yes, we'll be looking for those red mittens! They are giving me an idea for my students ~ I've got to get lots of red construction paper! Wouldn't red Olympic paper mittens make great garland?!?!
Enjoy the incredible opportunity of hosting the Olympics~
blessings & smiles to you ~ Maria

Hi Koralee
You know I prefer the winter olympics to the summer ones.. there is just something wonderful about them... I can feel your excitement.. when the olympics were here in Sydney it was the only time I was not working in the city.. and to be honest I avoided it.. then at the last minute i relented and went to a baseball match [my first]... the excitement was incredible .. the buzzy feeling of everyone happy to be there.. it's a great feeling... enjoy your buzz!!! xx Julie

VintageVicki said...

I shall be watching on the TV and will look out for your red mittens ;)

The 2012 summer Olympics are going to be within visiting distance from me so we are hoping we get tickets to watch some of the Stadium events.

Marina said...

Ooooh lucky you Koralee!
Those red mittens are adorable .... and how wonderful to have the Games in your own back yard.
I love the winter olympics, especially the figure skating and the luge!
I've never experienced the games (I was living in the US when they were on in Sydney). Maybe I will get to experience them here while living in the UK in 2012!
Enjoy ... and I will keep an eye out for you!
xx

Koralee my sweet little bluebird! Your mittens are marvelous and what fun this is going to be to watch the games so close by! ENJOY! Anita

Jacqueline said...

I am definitely going to look out for you, Koralee. I don't think that we will miss you in those lovely red mittens.
How exciting to have the Winter Olympics on your doorstep.
It won't be long before they are here in Great Britain in 2012. Some of the events like canoeing and rowing are very near to where I live and the centre of the Olmpics will be only 20 minutes away.
Enjoy the skating. XXXX

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Koralee... I had so much fun when the Winter Olympics were here in Salt Lake City in 2002 (even though I had to work the entire month at the PD!)... Roots USA berets were sooo hot then, I was fortunate enough to get everyone in my family one. Happy Olympics! xoxo Julie Marie

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

How fun for you! I'm looking forward to hearing all about it (and seeing pictures) through your up close and personal view. Love, love the mittens.

mimi charmante said...

I would love a pair of them - I need to get myself across the border to get a pair (and of course visit my family..). As I am not one for crowds, we will be staying down here for the next few weeks and enjoying the festivities on the tele~
Enjoy that fabulous Olympic spirit my friend,

You're so lucky to have these, they're beautiful. Did I tell you I'm a former Olympian? Well, in our high school we were the Olympian's, so I guess it actually makes me an Olympian alumni, lol :-)

Oh how fun! I remember when they where here in Utah it was so much fun. My daughter and I got to go to the speed skating and sit right down in the front thanks to my boss! But I do enjoy watching them on the TV but I will be thinking about you being right there and I will wave back!
