Movie Recs

I have had a bit of a movie filled week this week...and got 27dressesposter
to see two wonderful movies.  Monday night we had a girl's night out and saw the movie 27 Dresses.  Really cute movie and the absolute perfect chick flick! 

Then last night Aaron and I had a date night and saw the movie Juno.  I had been wanting to see it for awhile now and I really, really liked it.  Like the ad says, "a fresh, unusually intelligent comedy," it reminded me of "Little Miss Sunshine" which is another movie I really like.  It was also nominated for a few Oscars....wonderful performances by all the actors. 

Both of them had great music throughout and today I plan to buy the soundtracks!

Ski and Wii with the Lee's!

Saturday we had our 3rd Annual Couple's Ski Day and combined it with our turn to host Dinner was an INCREDIBLY FUN day!  Best part is just about everyone joined us skiing (Steph came and hung out at the lodge, we only were missing John).  P1191350
It was a beautiful day on the mountain and I was sorry to see the skiing come to end.  But all was well, cause we had big plans for the evening!  My brother had prepared most of our dinner in advance so we just had to pop things in the oven and heat some stuff up and we were all set for a gourmet meal.  Everything was so tasty and for the first time ever, people went home with doggy bags from dinner club!  Thank you so much Jeffrey!!!  For appetizers we had stuffed mushrooms, flat bread and a roasted red pepper spread.  Dinner started with a tomato bisque, then we had ham and bleu cheese stuffed chicken, fettuccine alfredo, and salad.  For dessert we had a delicious chocolate and strawberry cake, complete with extra fruit sauce, drizzled on chocolate and ice cream.  Mmmmm, mmm, good!

Then after dinner the fun continued with hot tubing, playing Guitar Hero and the Wii!  I think we might have sold a couple Wii's in the process too...such a fun game system to play with a group and the family.  Such a fun day and again I am so thankful to have such great you guys!! Ski and Wii here!

Calm before the storm

Wednesday we took the kids up to Mt. Shasta Ski Park for lessons for them and some slope time for Aaron and I.  Jacob had his first snowboarding lesson and Ella had a ski lesson.  The snow was great and my skis were freshly tuned so it was wonderful.  Unfortunately Aaron and I didn't get much time alone on the mountain during the lessons!  It was a beautiful and even warmish (as far as skiing goes anyhow) day but now we're bracing for some big winter storms, biggest since 2002 or so they're saying.  Snow levels are going to fall over the next few days and we're expecting 65-80mph winds.


We sure know how to wear out our kids!
