Valentine's Day

Wow, I'm WAY behind!!!
I stayed up the night before Valentine's to make Heart cinnamon rolls. They were so cute, but unfortunately when I took them out of the frige in the morning, I let them sit too long and they rose too much and squished together. They tasted delicious though and the girls and I really enjoyed them while Troy was working!! I then spent the day cleaning up the house and getting ready for that night. For Valentine's night, we attended a party thrown here at our house. The girls went to J & Shannon's house with Ashlyn to babysit. The party was done completely by friends Rabecca & Pat. It was based on the theme Love & Marriage and was so much fun!! We started out the evening with a FABULOUS dinner that included barbeque pulled pork, shrimp, meatballs, veggies, fruit, 7-layer salad and rolls. We then played the newlywed game that included some funny questions and some tough ones. (If I'd done this sooner, I would have remembered what they were!!) We actually ended up winning!! We had so much fun playing this game, that we didn't get to the second one. We then had yummy cake and cheesecake and ended the night just chatting.
It was such a fun night and all I had to do was clean up before the party!!!

Chill on the Hill

On Monday the 9th, we went up skiing for Boeing's night on the slopes. My good friend Shannon watched Peyton and we took Ryan with us. We were joined by the Carter's and had so much fun! We got up there and rented Ryan's ski's and stuck her in a class for an hour and a half. We then went and cruised around for a while. When it was time, we picked Ryan up and then spent some time on the "Magic Carpet" with her. Troy was fed up with the crowds and since Ryan was ready for something a little more challenging, he took her up on the chair lift to a little hill. They both then proceeded to scream, cry, and beat their way down the mountain.

Ryan was doing such a great job, but then she'd go too fast and crash. Troy would then yell at her to get back up and the scene would play over and over again down the mountain! We then went back to the "magic carpet" area for a little more time so Ryan could leave with a good experience. All in all it was a fun way to spend family night, and you couldn't beat the price.

Here's the picture of what her face looked like the next day!
