O Canada!

It is in honor of the Olympics and Grandpa Steve that I make this post.....I must give a little bit of information for some of you to understand:) When we wouldn't tell anyone the name of the baby before he was born, many people began coming up with their own little nicknames, one being Grandpa Steve. Tony and his dad (Grandpa Steve) have always enjoyed watching and playing hockey, but most of all they love the Canadian National Anthem. They always sing it, and we have gone to Rivermen hockey games when Canadian teams are in town just so they can hear it and sing along:) Well Grandpa Steve thought that we should name the baby Canada--he would have his own theme song was the main reason! So for Christmas, Owen got a Canada ornament, flag and outfit from Grandpa Steve and Grandma Carol. He was finally able to fit in it, just in time for the Olympics:) One of the best things is that hockey is one thing that Owen is entranced with on TV--I think it is the huge white screen with little specks moving across it, Daddy and Grandpa think it is because they instilled a love for the game in him:)


  1. Oh my gosh, he is so adorable!

  2. O Canada!
    Our home and native land!
    True patriot love in all thy sons command.
    With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
    The True North strong and free!
    From far and wide, O Canada,
    We stand on guard for thee.
    God keep our land glorious and free!
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    Suck it Francis Scott Key!

  3. So fun! I love in utero nicknames. I was looking through Ben's baby book and his was Big Mac. Their friends even did a shower invitation in the shape of a hamburger. heehee.
