I LOVE curling! I'm jealous; I wish I had a curling sheet in my kitchen. My main question: Did you play?

Too bad you didn't get a picture of the curling.

They were totally mocking the faces and gestures. That's what made me laugh so hard!

I should have taken a picture, but a video would have been the best. :)

Love it! Aren't kids great?

Perfect ending to a long day. It's good to get comic relief from our offspring.

My husband became obsessed with curling during this winter olympics.

All that weird yelling and sweeping...

I love that your kids curled!! (is that the correct past tense?), and I love that cheered you!
Thank you for sharing!

Awesome! I really really want to try it! There are leagues for any age here and free lessons for beginners at the local curling club (for real!!) I just have to get brave enough!

Wow, what a day! And what a great way to end it!

This made me laugh right out loud! It's exactly the kind of thing my kids would do!

Dedee | March 12, 2010 at 8:29 AM

Brilliant! I love those kinds of endings to days!

Oh. My. Gosh. That is hilarious!
I can picture the whole scene.

Curling in the kitchen. That is awesome! I'm glad my kids haven't thought of it yet, even if it made me laugh, they'd probably break the broom. Again.
