We had a great time although neither one of us could sleep.
I don't know if we are just accustomed to no sleep, but we were both wide awake at 2:30 a.m. and finally up before dawn.
I will say that this is the first breakfast in four years where I was able to sit and read a newspaper
it is also the first time in a very, very long time that Chris and I have been able to enjoy spa services -way overdue mind you.
It was nice to spend the quiet time with Chris, sometimes we forget what that feels like - but we wouldn't trade our lives for anything.
Maybe we can go back again next year and maybe next year we can sleep until at least daybreak.

Even underneath the table!
Take note that she never let go of her cup of cheese puffs though!

We have to take as many as we can, we never know how long it will be before we see snow again!
Here are a few, with a few more yet to come.
but she loved just watching it...
Addie was so excited and tried her best to say, "ssNO!"
(Check out those top two sponsors for Down Syndrome awareness!)
Not even enough to cover the roads...
but yet it was enough to close the schools...
Northern neighbors of ours, forgive our Southerness...we only have like two sand trucks in the entire State, so when those white flakes start to fall, panic sets in.
Hope you guys are hanging in there and can maneuver through the eight foot snow drifts, we sure did enjoy our two inches of precipitated fluff!

I have self diagnosed and am absolutely certain that I cannot be clinically classified as having a dissociative identity disorder.
Yet, the voices remain.
There are many voices:
Those that tell me to smile politely;
Those that tell me to bite my tongue;
Those that tell me that carbs really are not my friend;
Those that talk me through backing out of the tiniest of parking spots;
Those that ask me why I ever bought such a long vehicle if I hated parking so much;
Those that tell me I need more rest;
Those that tell me it's okay if I'm having a bad day - other people do too;
There are many, many more voices;
One voice in particular told me that there is no shame in hoarding buying three pairs of Lelli Kelly's because they were on sale and braces might just fit into the Lelli Kelly's and that I was smart to buy three pairs at one time.
I like that voice. That voice makes me happy.
Oh, just for the fun of it, we'll call that voice..."Patti".
It's Patti's fault.
She emailed me while she was stuck in traffic at The Summit to let me know that Little Soles just so happened to be having a sale on Lelli Kelly's.
Nobody can pass up a sale on kid's shoes!
We shouldn't have to wait and so we didn't.
Sweet, sweet Baby Boy of mine!
Where's our blue pair?
Little Soles was all sold out in Monkey's size!
