Back At It

It's snowing again! Weird. We've had SO much snow this year, much more than last year....just getting the ski hill ready for Ryan when his season is over, I guess.

Ryan's break is over and he's in Milan today, trying to bump the team up from #8 to #7.

I'm making white bean chicken chili, since it's snowing, and I managed to find jalapenos (not a common sight here) at a huge grocery store outside of Venice......

Last week we went to Padova to the children's hospital to present them with a check for 3,000 euro that we raised at the games by auctioning off jerseys and signed sticks (Ryan's jersey raised the most money - JUST saying). The doctors and nurses were all so happy with the donation and the kids loved to meet all the players and were very sweet. We did this last year too and it really puts things into perspective.

AND.....playoffs start in a week! Can't believe how fast the time this year has flown by. (Or that this happened a YEAR ago!)
