Winter Break

We have had a very quiet break so far. No big storms. No snow at all in fact. Yet. Maybe tonight they say. Lots of cancelled plans due to the flu. We haven't gotten it. Yet. I really hope we don't ~ had enough of that last year!

We managed to play at Chuck E. Cheese with Grandpa Mike and Uncle Seth. We also had some nice quiet days with Grandma Tina at her house.

While in Iowa we snuck in a quick visit with Auntie Shari & Grandma Mary!

So, we haven't been terribly busy, but as I watch the kids swimming & laughing together in the hot tub I feel like that's just fine.

Extremely Random And Oh So Funny

I'm referring to Ayla's letter to Santa. I found it in her backpack and totally cracked up. Click the photo to make it bigger & you should be able to read it all. Enjoy!

Another Girls Weekend

Here is a photo of my drool worthy breakfast from Snooze. What you see are seasoned hash browns, honey smoked salmon on bacon-jalapeno spoonbread, topped with a poached egg, cream cheese hollandaise and chives. Mmmmmm, my stomach is growling just thinking of it. Not shown, but also consumed are the best pancakes I've ever eaten. I can't describe them. Look at the website & if you're ever in Colorado look for Snooze!

We were lucky enough to have a couple of other ladies join us for part of the time, but up above is the core group of 37's. We didn't even realize it until we got together, but we were all born in 1974. If we get together between 3 certain months we are all the same age at the same time!

I didn't take many photos, because we walked everywhere & my camera is large & bulky. The other photos I have I won't share. They are of us lounging in bed & relaxing in the rooftop hot tub. Our time was spent walking, window shopping, eating really good food, taking a night-time sleigh ride, half a day at the spa, talking, drinking coffee & did i mention the FOOD? It was awesome. All of it. Looking forward to 40!!
