A FULL DAY OF FUN!

Saturday morning I got up early and got the boys ready for their youth group ski trip. My husband made them pancakes for breakfast and I gathered up all their gear and snacks for the day. The weather was quite cold with windchill of -20 degree but we headed to the ski hills anyway. The kids were excited to be going and it was Jay and his friend Matthew first time skiing. They had a great day skiing and after lessons were off to the bigger hill where we spent the day. Jay caught on quick and Matthew struggled with being able to control his speed....yep a few crashed but somehow he managed not to get injured. I also survived the day and had the time of my life with the youth and would love to go back again soon. I tell you though my legs muscles are sore and I can barely move today and I think Jay is feeling it as well. We left the ski hill around 4:00pm which got me home just in time to get ready for our Valentine's Gala! With minutes to spare our sitter arrived and we were quickly out the door. The Gala was amazing! I am so glad that we decided to go and to be able to talk with adults for the evening was so nice. The dinner was fabulous with stuffed chicken breast, garlic baby potatoes and veggies followed by a buffet dessert. When we arrived we had the option to purchase a prize balloon each for $10 (every balloon won a prize from $10 up in value) It came time to redeem our prize as they called us up in groups of ten. Matt won $10 Tim Horton's gift certificates (being #9) and I won a 19" flat screen TV with DVD (being #64). It definitely was worth the night out. What a great Valentine's gift this night turned out to be. The dance afterward was nice with the live band but after having such a long day I was ready to return home! The kids were still up with the sitter and they to had a fun evening. Today is going to be a day to relax and the fact that I can hardly move will make it all that much easier to do so LOL
