My niece, my beautiful, talented, athletic niece, has made the final cut. She's going to Stockholm, Sweden on December 27th, to play for Canada in the Womens Under-18 World Hockey Championships.
These will be a (hopefully) welcome addition to her travel wardrobe, and she'll know our love and best wishes are wrapped in every stitch.
They're wrapped and under the tree, and I can't wait to give them to her on the 25th. (I love this reindeer box!!)
She's made us proud, not just because she made the team, but she did so while maintaining a mid-90's academic average in her final year of high school, and is just a great, caring kid.
My brother and his wife are proud of her, as are the rest of the family. While I can't be in Stockholm, I'll be following along via the internet, keeping track of her triumph.
