Special Hockey night… Day 764 18DEC10

We had a house full of family today. Jamie and Allie came over and my Dad dropped in for a bit as well. Allie was her usual charming self and we really enjoyed the visit. Jamie stayed for dinner and as soon as we were finished we got ready to head off and watch the Lightning play at home. We were given tickets by Martin Raymond who we met a few weeks back, he is one of the assistant coaches for the team. The game was fantastic and they won after an exciting third period. Coach Raymond also gave us guest passes for after the game so we headed down to meet him. Joshua was invited into the Lightning locker room to view the placement of the photo that we had framed for Couch Boucher. Renee got as far as the Lightning Locker room doors and Coach Raymond told her that it was "guys only". She was just a little bummed!

Here is a picture of Coach Raymond and Joshua with the picture.

My Mom did a fantastic job framing the picture and Joshua and Coach Boucher decided on the perfect place for it to hang. Coach Boucher said that when he thinks he is having a tough day he's going to look at the picture and know that Joshua is tougher! Joshua also got to meet all of the other coaches and say hi to Stamkos and had him re-sign his "lucky shirt". The signature started to fade away when Renee washed it. She will have to hand wash it from now on! Once again the Lightning players and coaches are an amazing group of guys that extended to us another remarkable, unforgetable evening.. Thank you! Go Bolts!

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

The Bolts are tops in my book! What a wonderful, generous and awesome group of guys. Glad they won. Might even turn me into a hockey fan (but only for them).

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
