Snow Skiing Weekend Getaway!

Matt and I spent the end of last week and this past weekend in Durango, Colorado snow skiing. We love to snow ski so we decided to use my birthday for an excuse to go. It was a great trip. It was just the two of us and we had a blast. We left on Thursday morning and planned on spending the night somewhere in New Mexico, but we were making such good time that we ended up driving in to Durango and staying there on Thursday night. We ended up getting a whole day in that we were not planning for, so that was nice. We went to some amazing restaurants and just had a wonderful time together. Alyssa stayed with my mom half the time and Matt's parents the other half. She had a great time with both of her nana's. It makes it so much easier to leave her when we know she is being loved on and taken care of the way she is. Also, every time we call she is laughing and talking to us and so excited! We are blessed with such great families that are MORE than willing to offer us a night out, or a weekend to ourselves! Matt and I have realized it is so important for us to have OUR time together. We cherish it dearly!

Here are a few pictures from the trip. It was breathtaking. God's creation is just amazing and I found myself standing in AWE!

We serve an Amazing Savior!

Growing up so fast...

I just think she is a doll!

She is a little stinker!
I just love that little face!

Here are a few new pictures of Alyssa. I don't really have any recent ones of her on here , so I thought I would add some new ones. These were taken yesterday! She is such a JOY!

New Years Celebration...

Matt and I enjoyed New Year's in Dallas this year. We left on Sunday and came back New Years Day after the Raz. game. We went to some great restaurants and spent New Years Eve at Six Flags. We first RAN..yes RAN to the Titan and rode it about 5 times and the other rides several times too. Matt is like a little boy when it comes to theme parks, so we had a great time and It was a great new years eve. We didn't quite make it till midnight to ring in the new year. Six flags wore us out!

We woke up New Years morning all pumped for the game...but things did not turn out too great for the hogs! That's ok. It is a new year and hopfully things will be looking up for the Razorbacks!

Well until next time, Hope the year ahead brings much happiness for you all!
