Wow I can't believe it's a week until Christmas. Where did the time go? Mrs. T's family will arrive in Vancouver tomorrow to officially kick off our Christmas holiday mode. Because Scandinavians celebrate Christmas on the 24th, we'll be having the Christmas dinner on the 24th. We'll be hosting everyone this year and we're very much looking forward to it. Having a 10 people sit down formal dinner will be the largest meal that we've ever done at our place. 🙂
Earlier this week, one of my posts got picked up by Lifehacker. It was pretty neat to see my name mentioned on Lifehacker. If you haven't, please sign up for my Christmas giving challenge to help others in need this holidays season.
What about those Vancouver Canucks eh? The team hasn't been doing well the last couple of months. Then during the last game against the Philadelphia Flyers, we lost the team captain, Henrik Sedin. Hopefully Henrik won't be gone for long because the team has a serious depth issue at the centre position. Considering the team has no chance of winning the Stanley Cup if they make the playoffs this season, I'm all for tanking this season and try to get the #1 draft pick. Auston Matthews anyone?

Have a great weekend everyone! Stay safe and don't forget to give if you can. I'll be donating blood this weekend to help someone in need. This has been a ~56th day tradition (you can donate blood after 56 days) for me for over 5 years now. 🙂
