Sidenote........"Poster Child" of Mine!!!

Just figured I'd point out that the odd, silly, funny, sarcastic, and otherwise strange comments on my blogs are my darling daughter who is almost 17. If you all can't tell, she's quite the linguist and is a very talented and aspiring author. She's sometimes bored out of her mind as mama has made her keep her blog very private and safe............so she wanders over here to have FUN!!!! ;) Truly......she keeps us laughing and in constant awe of her imagination and the fact that there is NO end to the stories she has in her pretty head!!! Some of you have met her (and also my hubby and son) and many of you will get to meet her soon!! I'll tip you off.......she's very shy and quiet in front of most people, so you'll just have to really get to "know" her on my blog!!

And to add to that............I can't wait to meet many of my Flybaby friends soon!!!!!! I already feel so spoiled as I've met Paula and Suzanne already!! WoooooooooHooooooo..........it's great to have so many friends!!!!!!!!!!! :)

A Wonderful Get-Away!!!




Who could ask for more??? A spectacular view, no interruptions, delicious food, stampin' time, snow in the mountains...................HEAVEN!!!




Hubby had a business trip to the Snowbird Lodge and I got to go!! It snowed the night we arrived, it was only a little over 8 hours to drive.......and what a wonderful Fall drive!! I packed more stampin' stuff than clothes!!! LOL




While hubby attended seminars and lectures...........I stamped in our hotel room with the views of the snowy pines!! I was a day or two late for WCMD, but I made several of our SCS Flybaby WCMD challenges!! What a wonderful time...........even though, of course I missed my kiddos!!!




But what wonderful technology with my laptop that we could chat on messenger and talk on the cell. And I had fun buying presents for them too!!




The dinners we had at the lodge were top notch gourmet meals (my kids would NOT have appreciated them!)........and we only splurged on dessert to share one time!!! ;)




Well............now back to the daily routines and getting the house ready to put up on the market and getting ready for our big family roadtrip!! Busy, busy days ahead!!
