The Nutcracker and an Anniversary Get Away

Steve and I got in on the Black Friday specials this year... we found a 2 day get away in Colorado Springs for $45.00 a night... which included breakfast.  We feel as if we got a lot better deal than all those shoppers who stayed up all night.

This was our anniversary present to each other.... not Hawaii yet;an appetizer for next year.. right? It was a nice, much needed,  restful 2 days for us.  We left on Friday and returned on Sunday.

Friday night we went to the Nutcracker Ballet, which was a first for me; I have never been before... I feel as if I have been missing out on a lovely tradition all these years.  It was a delightful evening.  Three special little girls who are the daughters of our friends were in the  ballet, which was what made it the most wonderful of all.   Not only that, but we bought  the tickets at the last minute, but ended up with seats right behind our friends and their family, out of a crowd of so many, that was remarkable.  With that joy to launch us, the Christmas Spirit is rising in us now, and I feel the desire to get the tree out and decorate it tomorrow... if Steve and I can figure out how to get the tree out of the attic now that Steve is "out of sorts". Steve doesn't even think Eddie can extract that tree this time, so we might have to get our neighbor to come over and help.  Hope you have a wonderful week everyone.  I pray the delights that belong to the Christmas Season  be yours.

Blessings, Pam


  1. Oh I do hope you are able to get your tree out of storage. I wish so bad I was there to help some how, especially decorating and eating Rice Krispies and drinking hot chocolate and watching Its a Wonderful LIfe. :(
    Makes me want to cry thinking of it.

    Love you

  2. For some reason I thought I had left a comment. It must have been because we talked on the phone about your delightful weekend and I got mixed up :P

    Love this picture mom and I am waiting patiently for your next update! Miss you and Dad so much.....

  3. A getaway is always nice! Good for you two! Nutcracker is new for me too, last year was my first time to see it. We knew several of the ballerinas, and it was so much fun! Glad you enjoyed it!
