Olympics at Home!

We have been obsessed with watching the Winter Olympics these last two weeks. I mean, absolutely glued to the television during every broadcast minute, checking for updates on our phones when we're out, sneaking peeks at every screen we pass in case we missed something obsessed.

We watch every second of hockey, obviously - we're Canadian

But we're almost equally as riveted by the skiing, the snowboarding, the speed skating, the figure skating, the bobsledding, the luge. We've even made a valiant effort to watch curling - roughly the equivalent, entertainment-value-wise, of watching paint dry. The kids absolutely cannot get enough of watching these athletes perform and keeping track of scores and standings and medals and cheering for our country. It's awesome.

So I thought, why not have our own little Olympics at home?

A Canadian flag hung over the tv in the living room to show our Canadian pride and a homemade construction paper Olympic ring chain.

Celebrating the Olympics in style!
