2012 Gatchel Olympics: Opening Ceremony

Today was the opening ceremony of the 2012 Gatchel Olympics!
<Noah> "I never ever heard of the Olympic Ceremonies before.
<Mikayla> "I like the teremonys"

First Mommy announced the start of the ceremony. Then we had our Parade of Nations when we all got to walk around the house holding our flag high and proud while our chosen song was playing. Noah's was "Life on the Highway from Rascal Flatts (in Cars). Mikayla's song was the "We Are Young" ("I'll carry you home tonight") song. Daddy's was the theme to Indiana Jones. Mommy's song was "1,2,3" by the Plain White T's. We also hung the flags sent in by our friends and family. Then we introduced our Olympic song, "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson.

After the Parade of Nations, we lit our Olympic "torch" and said our oath and got our very own shirts!

Finally, in honor of this years London games, we ate English food consisting of cottage pile, scones, and tea cakes :)
