Winter Olympics 2010



Remember this name: Eden Marrano.

It's hard to believe that she was the flower girl in my wedding seven years ago. Or that she was 2 1/2 when I first met her. It's amazing how quickly they grow up! Last Sunday, before I got sick - we went to watch her skate at a show that the rink she practices at coordinated. We try to go to as many of her competitions as we can, but they live on the South Shore, and we're on the North - so we don't get to go to as many as we'd like. But we made it down for this show and we all went out for dinner at a local family restaurant afterwards. She's training to go to the 2010 Olympics - and I wouldn't be surprised if she makes it. Not only does she excel at figure skating, but she just started tennis a year and a half ago - and is ranked 32d in New England. She's athletically gifted. And my kids adore her....as you can see from the pictures!

She's the perfect kid to dislike. Just kidding. It sounds like she is quite a girl. I thought you were going to say this was your new babysitter.

I tried tennis when I was in middle school...even had private lessons one summer....yeah, I was no good!

I love to watch figure skating! Always wanted to try but have never even put on a pair of skates!

I'll definately be watching for her in 2010 :)

That's fantastic. I hope you are feeling better.

I always thing skating appears easy, in actuality I fall on my ass every time.

Interesting! I plan on going to the 2010 Olympics, which is so funny when I opened this post. I'm a fanatic for Short Track Speed skating and Apolo Anton Ohno, but I'm also a fan of figure skating. I'll remember her name!

Hope you are feeling better. Hmmm .. another skating star from Massachusetts!

Re: Your comments at my post.
It was a pun using phonetics. Mayo being a short version of mayonnaise, and Cinco equated to sink-o. "Sinko de Mayo'" - pour it in the sink.
...I guess you had to be there, the joke turned bad like the mayonnaise?

How amazing! I hope she will be our star skater in 2010.

Feel better so you can come to Atlanta and drink champagne and go shoe shopping with me!!!
