Hockey Fundraiser

Okay, as a rule, I limit my posts to decorating. But I'll make an exception as this is something special. My daughter, who is 16 years old and is special needs, loves hockey! She lived and breathed it since she was 4 years old. She now plays for both Andover High School (JV) Hockey and on the MN Special Hockey team (http://www.mnspecialhockey.org/).

This past weekend we went to a fundraiser given by Mark Parrish from the MN Wild, and another group called Hockey Docs (http://www.hockeydocscharities.org/). We were able to meet a number of hockey players from all over. But the highlight of the night was meeting Kristi Yamaguchi. Her are some pictures of the night.

This is a picture of Tim Conboy. He playes with the Carolina Hurricanes and attended a MN Saints baseball game with MN Special Hockey the following Tuesday. He's hails from Rosemount, MN and will also skate with the Special Hockey team this Sunday.

It has kind of been a whirlwind and something we all will remember! Go Wild!
