~r & r~

The day after Christmas we packed our bags and headed to the mountains for a little r and r.
We stayed in a gorgeous lodge on the river, played pool, board games, watched movies in front of the fire, had snow ball fights, and most importantly, no computers! :)
It was much needed and a trip I will remember forever.







 Our suite had these giant picture windows that overlooked the snow covered mountains and the river.
Every now and then a train would go by.
It totally reminded me of the Polar Express.

I hope you all are having a relaxing break.
I kinda don't want my kids to go back to school.

We always go away for Christmas - usually skiing. This year we chose Kauai and had beautiful weather. Seeing your snow pics make me wish we were skiing.

Happy New Years

Hi Melaine
I'm a faithful follower, you are such an inspiration. I am trying to go back and read your blog for 2010, but I can't seem to get the archive button to work. What am I doing wrong? I can click on the month, but it doesn't go anywhere. (I'm too lazy to keep going to the bottom and work my way back! Thanks for your help. My email is rshafer@bak.rr.co
