:: Stars On Ice 2010 ::

I posted this back in March.......last night, I got to see that very performance, live.
One of my mom's dogs was expecting puppies and went into labour (and had five babies) so my good and lovely friend Becca (very enthusiastically) agreed (very last minute) so come along with my dad and Trev. Miss D stayed back with Oma and we had an unbelievable evening. My husband even admitted that, although he went with reservations, he very much enjoyed himself.
I'll confess that went they started to introduce the skaters and (Olympic Gold Medalists) Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir came on the ice, I teared up a little. I'm blaming the pregnancy hormones :)
Just a couple shots from Tessa and Scott's performance to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.
Notice the top right and bottom left shots......yep, that's the infamous "goose". Truly the most graceful, passionate, emotional and beautiful pieces of moving art I've ever seen. I was willing that they would fit the piece in and sure enough, just before the final group number, out she came in a flowy pink dress and as soon as the lights came up, my heart skipped a beat.

The other superstars of the night were Joannie Rochette and married couple Jamie Salle and David Pelletier who totally blew everyone away with their lifts and jumps.
I could go on and on and on.
Awesome night, incredible skating.
Love, loved it.
