Valentine's Day Get-Away
Last weekend we with two other couples on our second annual Valentine's Day trip to Ruidoso.
Our cabin...the view was AMAZING.

The boys had to haul all the luggage up three levels. Between all the huffing and puffing they kept saying, "Me no breafe. Me no breafe." They blamed it on the thin air, but the girls joked it was because they are getting old and out of shape.
Just the beginning of a weekend FULL OF LAUGHTER!!! Cody and Misty Johnson
Ryan and Holly Crutcher
Our friends Haylee and Chance (at the end of the table) met us at the steak resteraunt.

We got there Friday around 12, checked-in, and played Rummie until dinner. After dinner we went to the Inn of the Mountian Gods and played a little Black Jack.

Saturday the boys went skiing (supposedly it was the best snow they'd ever seen!)

The girls went shopping on Saturday morning after we got pedicures!

My three new purchases. The jacket was only $13, and I love my two new scarfs.

Saturday night we were all tired, so we ordered pizza and played Scattegories. I laughed so hard, I almost...well, let's just say I laughed really hard. Sunday morning we ate at the Log Cabin and headed home where Ronnie and I spent the rest of the night relaxing and eating Chinese.

The BIG Purchase

Monday we met his mom to get the boys in Floydada.
THANKS NONNI FOR THE AMAZING WEEKEND AWAY!!!
Then on our way back through Lubbock we bought our first king-sized bed!

It's a Simmons Beauty Rest, World-Class with a Visco top, and unless you have been bed shopping none of that means anything ;)

We got the bed on clearance; it was $1100 off. I bought the bedding at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and it was 50% off. It isn't the "bedding of my dreams", but the price was right ;)

Valentine's Day Party 2/11/10
My first Valentine's Day present from Drew, two bracelets. I haven't taken them off!
Drew's Valentine's Day party at school was a "dress-up" day.
He is holding vitamins because it was "v" show-and-tell too!

Drew mixed, cut, and decorated these cookies for his friends all by himself
(except for the oven and icing!)
He was so proud.



Kade decorated this cookie with M&M's and sprinkles.


Drew's first Valentine's Day cards.


Drew was so excited that Ronnie came to his party. When Ronnie walked in Kade ran all the way across the room yelling, "Daddy!" Then Ronnie picked him up Kade asked, "How was work Daddy?"

You looked GORGEOUS in the pics from your trip! Looks like y'all had a good time! And I LOVE the bed...I can't wait to hear how much better you feel when you are getting some good rest!! I loved my Valentine's gifts from Drew and we had a great time playing with both boys when we could. I was gone to Austin through Friday, and then wasn't feeling great that evening, so I didn't get to see them really until Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Miss you SOOO much and glad to see/read you guys had a great time in Ruidoso. R and I could have used a getaway, but we stayed home and spent the day with each other, which is good enough for me. :)

Hey Ms Dawn! I don't know where to start! I'm jealous (just a little!) of your weekend getaway and new king sized bed!! and I loved the cookies; I think I may copy you, and do something similar next year. I'm glad you had fun at the Monster Truck Jam; we went 3 times this year, and LOVED it too! We're looking forward to seeing you in May; I have it on my calendar... we can come to PaAige, or meet you wherever is good for you!
