my olympic favorites...

Torah Bright & Shaun White
When we lived in the "big city" we rented our basement to our favorite Australian friends...Torah, her Mom & little sis.
What a beautiful family!
Torah & her Dad.
Love this pic.

Shaun White...my brother
(who probably doesn't even remember me).
He had a difficult time falling asleep in our guest room, b/c my porcelain doll collection freaked him out. Nevermind gravity-defying tricks in the halfpipe, he can't even handle a few little dolls that stare him down throughout the night.
Good luck guys!

No, not Shaun. Just Torah. Shaun just came by to visit her every once in a while. I was just saying those two are my favorite olympians.

Love the hair shot!!! I was laughing hysterically about the dolls! Do you still have your collection? I may or may not have D.I.ed my collection of like 20 dolls when we moved. If I was thinking I could have sold them on Ebay! ;)

How lucky are you!! To know both the men's and women's gold medalists in halfpipe boarding! I watched both of them and was so proud of Torah! Although I'm sure she doesn't remember me, it's fun to know someone in the Olympics and see them succeed!

WOW! I remember when Tora lived in your house. You are famous now! I thought of you when I saw her win the gold. Knowing you knowing Tora is as close as I will get to knowing someone famous :)
