Owen and Holly had just moved to Nova Scotia. They missed their friends back home in Saskatchewan and they especially missed the frozen pond where they used to play hockey. Skating on the ice in the driveway just wasn't the same.
What the kids didn't know was that Dad was building then a surprise. Busy in the back yard and the garbage, he was up to something. Then, on Christmas he revealed his big surprise...
Hockey, the greatest game in the world. We simply can't wait until it's time to build a rink in our yard. The best thing about a Canadian winter!
