Bett & Wil

Steve, Martin, Oli, Mayu, Aaron, Ivy, Bett, Paul, Julia, Wil, and Tony heading to Northstar

My first night sleeping away from Ashlyn felt wierd. Even though I didn't have to worry about getting up for feedings or diaper changes, I found myself waking up often last night. Don't know if it's just me or if other mothers experience this, but every so often, I swear I can hear her crying. Freaky, huh?
Cin and I woke up at 7am to join everyone for breakfast before they hit the slopes. After everyone left, we both went back to bed. This time I slept soundly....perhaps a bit too soundly, because when I woke up, it was 1pm! I woke Cin up, and we ate some lunch. Afterwards, we decided to go out and play in the snow. While we waited for Pete and Tally to arrive, Cin and I attempted to make a snowman. I never really made a snowman before, and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I always pictured stacking a ball of snow on top of another ball of snow, but it doesn't work that way. We spent hours packing snow, and eventually formed this huge mound, resembling a pyramid. When Pete and Tally showed up, we were ready to add the details: shoulders, arms, face, etc.

me, Tally, and Cin

We decided to make our snowman into a snow-woman, since the base looked like a dress. She stood about 5' 3" and resembled "Aunt Jemima". Pete pillaged the kitchen for "face-stuff". Our snow-woman had coal for eyes, carrot stick for a nose, a fruit roll-up smile, and a salted prune necklace. hehehe Tally even added flower petals for eyelashes. Our snow-woman was a hottie! We were done by the time the first half of the group came back from snowboarding.

TA-DA!...the finished product!

The rest of the snowboarders came back by 5pm. Almost all of them looked wind-burned and like they biffed it pretty bad at some point. We all ate dinner and played board games and PS2, and ate some more. Mayu made a yummy chocolate fondue!

Later in the evening we gathered, around the dining table with drinks in hand, to play "I Have Never..". The object of this game is to make others drink while finding out all sorts of nasty little tidbits about one another. For example: "I have never engaged in sexual activity in a public place". Whoever has, has to drink.
For some whacked reason, one of our friends (I won't name names), could NOT grasp the object of the game. He would say something very convoluted like, "I have never had sex with a brother's girlfriend's sister on top of the roof of a Safeway on 22nd street". *dead silence* Our friend looks around, "anyone?..anyone?...no?!....aw, sh*t!" ..then he takes a drink. He did this several times, until he was the only one drunk. HAHAHAHAHAHA!
We then decided to play "Truth or Dare"....but that ended quickly when one of guys' Dare was to sample a spoonful of my breastmilk. HAHAHAHAHA! Yes, we're twisted folks.
