Anyway...the point of this post is to brag to you about my friend. She makes you feel like a star, and is truly talented. Spend an hour with her, get some pics of yourself, or you and your special someone...make a date of it...it will be totally worth it. And you will honestly feel like a million bucks after. Visit her site to check out her portfolio: http://www.treasuredphotosbyjoyana.com/
I can't wait to get my pics back! I'll definitely post a few of the not so scandalous ones when I get them. Thanks Joyana!!!

Checking out at Walmart.
You would not believe the screams, applause and cheers that this crew gave us when we showed up with Jenco's toy donation. It was a little bit embarrassing, but also gave us such a great feeling knowing that what we had done was so appreciated. Thanks Buffy for looking into that for us!
Playing cards & sipping Banana Mamas on the beach. What could be better?
We left Cancun, and when we arrived in Denver that night, the flight attendant welcomed us to the -15 degree weather! Luckily, Kent braved the cold to get the truck and picked us up curbside.
The only bad thing about the entire trip, was that we didn't have cell phone service - so keeping in contact with our kids was challenging. Stewart let us use his phone, but I just missed my little cuties! I wanted them to be able to call me whenever they needed to, and I wanted to be able to chat with them whenever...but it didn't quite turn out that way. Fortunately, they were in great hands with Auntie Lia! I know they had fun without us, but it was really nice to come home and give them all HUGE hugs and lots of kisses!
I really do think there are so many good things that come from some time away from them though. First and foremost, spending time alone with your spouse, without the normal everyday stresses, gives you the opportunity to remember why you love each other, and why you chose to be together in the first place. It's really refreshing. And secondly, it makes you realize that you really, truly would be so empty without your kids, and they realize that you really are nice to have around! It's a win-win all around!
Thank you Jenco & Thank you LiLi! Love you girl!
2nd ride of the day: Splash Mountain - we got SOAKED and it was CHILLY! We dried out eventually, but this explains why my hair is completely frizzed out the entire rest of the day.
Az in Pixie Hollow
Bella in Pixie Hollow. We actually got in trouble for letting them sit on the props - I didn't mind too much.
The girls during their 2 minutes with Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow. We stood in line for that longer than anything else all day! But Az & B thought it was totally worth it!
Submarine ride with Sarah, Sienna, Bella, Nana & Az
Dan, Calvin and I on the Submarine ride before we all dozed off there.
Az, B & Cousin Sienna with Aurora
She had 2 children (my mom's sister Jan passed away in '98), 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren...and almost all of us were there to party with Grandma for her 90th. Her husband Mac was there as well (her first husband, my Grandmpa Hill, passed away in '94).
