Sore legs

Too bad I don't have any pictures from this weekend. I'm sure you'd all enjoy them. Neither Brian nor I saw each other crash, but if mine was any indication they would have been great photos! He took a lesson and I skiied a bit before leaving for work. We were both having trouble walking yesterday! I haven't been on my skis in 2 years (due to no snow last year) and he hasn't skiied in 9 years! I think I may take a few lessons as well and see if I can't get better before he shows me up!

Pray for snow...

Falling off the face of the earth...

For those of you who think I've disappeared and are wondering why I haven't responded to your emails... some of you for months! I promise I'm still here and reading them. I honestly care about you, yes, I do! It's just that I seem to have caught everything that's come around in the last month. And it's not even from the kids at school! Who knew having friends could be so detrimental to your health! We did manage to get to Portland this weekend between illnesses and take in a Blazers game with Brian's grandparents. (Thanks Aunt Gayle) It was a very exciting game, right down to the wire... and I'm not sure but what the grandparents didn't enjoy it more than we did! :) Thanks also to Jason and Amber and their two lovely wet nosed greyhounds for housing us. Sorry I'm such a picky eater, Amber! The snow made us hurry back on Monday, but there were no major issues other than stupid drivers and we made it back in good time. For now I'm finally feeling better... I love you very much, but please don't come visit me if you're sick!

Happy New Year!

The past week spent with Brian's family has been great... except for his sister giving me her flu-thing! This house has 7 beds... tonight there are 13 people here representing 6 different branches of the R family! The girls all had a hilarious time getting a foot spa from Aunt Cindi... if I had the connector cord from the camera you could see it, but that will be after we get home. We are also indoctrinating all the cousins into Settlers of Catan. If you haven't played that game yet, you are missing out! But watch out for Brian's running commentary! :)
Happy New Year all and blessings!
