He's gonna be rich!

Recently we had a big event take place at our house. Ethan lost one of his front teeth. I guess he's really growing up! But.....the best part as Jackson informed Ethan is that you get to put your tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy brings you Quarters, Diamonds and Pennies!

What a deal I'd say!

January....the bad and the really good

So I've got a little money saving tip for you.....
since it's cold out anyway why use your fridge when you can do this? Put your milk in ice banks to chill, perishables in a family size cooler and condiments, well they can fend for themselves. It's really convenient, except for the fact that all your labels fall off, everything is slightly damper than normal because unfortunately it does rain in the winter. Bummer! I'm sure you figured this is not something we planned. Matt and I had been getting ready to leave out of town for a week when our fridge went out unexpectedly. Well, I suppose that it's never "expected". What a drag! Anyway we improvised (thank goodness it is winter) and now three fridges later (don't ask) we are good to go.
So after figuring all of this out this is where we got to go:
Looks fun doesn't it?! Well it was!

Leaving the yucky cold winter for this put a BIG smile on my face!

January in Cabo San Lucas, not too shabby I must say. Matt or possibly strangers snorkeling...not too sure, I was dozing on the job :)

The "hat" : best vacation accessory now determined. Made early morning dining on the ship possible without exposing severe bedhead to unsuspecting cruise passengers.

This was one of our formal nights for dinner. Good food and even better date.

Food is something that there is no shortage of on a cruise ship. Believe me if you haven't been it's hard to imagine where they possibly store this kind of mass quanity of grub. But it's not about the quantity (well for many it was :) but for us it's all about presentation. Sad but true we took pictures of our food like every night. This is just a small sample. Our dinner mates must have thought we were crazy....but hey, we like to document.

Yummy!! You just can't go wrong with lobster. And, well if one isn't enough to fill you up order 2 or 3. Does it get any better than this?

Now to sum up this beautiful vacation:

Relaxation to the fullest
An over abundance of delicious food
Someone to clean my room and make my bed (twice a day)
Warm weather and sunshine that can't be beat
Time with my sweetheart that can't be matched at home
An opportunity to miss my children
Realization of how blessed we are in the US bad economy or not we are lucky!
