WIP Wednesday... sort of...

So... I did get some done this week. I got the back of the game night quilt started... But that's all.


So, in lue of a real WIP post, I am going to share some of what I've been doing instead of sewing...

Fact about me: I love the Olympics. I mean, I love the Olympics. I love the Olympics the way most people love Christmas. Every 4th year, I want to buy a giant TV and never stop watching the epic display of human awesomeness. LOVE!!!

So, with the 2012 London games starting, I found myself in full Olympic fever. And, because I was unable to pack up and move to London for two weeks, I settled on hosting our own family Olympics instead!


***Que Theme Music***
The Events:
Javelin!



Discus!

Fencing!



Archery!



Marble Racing! (I think this one could be running?)


Shot Put! (Which, as you can see was really just a water ballon fight...)


Kayaking!

Finally, our own Olympic Torch!


Cupcake cones! With a frosting flame! Yes, they were really, really good! :)

Here's to all the Olympians!!! Next time - I'm totally going to Rio...

Happy WIP Wednesday, everyone!! Be sure to head on over to Freshly Pieced!!!

I love your Olympic torch... I am a bit of a Olympic fan as well! and being in London, well you cannot really avoid it. Should have some pics to share tomorrow if you fancy having a tour...

This looks like an absolute blast! I'm obsessed too--I just read an article about the size of the cyclists' thighs. Did you read that? Blew my mind. And also made me wonder why I was spending time reading an article about cyclists' thighs...

How fun! Our son is like you. So if our grand kids go to bed like they should during the games,then the next morning there is a "medal ceremony" held on the fireplace hearth with the national anthem playing!
