WOW! It's All Over!

It's all in our memories now and all I can say is WOW!  Was that fun or WHAT?!?!

Thanks, Kim, for hauling part of my stuff home for me.

Thanks, Vickie for hauling the REST of my stuff home for me... and taking it to my house and unloading it for me when I wasn't even there!!!

Thanks, Jessie and Missy for taking the food.  Their men are firefighters and they took all of the leftover food to the fire station for all of them to devour!  I loved that!

Thanks, Lavon, Pat and Myriam for going to my room and getting my stuff into my car for me (I got so busy, I totally forgot!)

And, now I'm going to be so mad at myself because I am going to miss thanking some people who did SO much to help me out but I am still brain dead this morning!


I hope you all made it home safe and sound.  I did, but not until after Lyla and I went to lunch at Olive Garden (and ran into Lori there, too!).  And after leaving there, we headed to Krista's store, Scrapbook Memories because heaven knows we need MORE SCRAPBOOK STUFF!!!

This retreat had so many sweet memories.  It was just such a wonderful time!  Please share some of your special memories by leaving a comment here... If you can't comment, send me an email and I will be happy to place it on here! 

I already miss you all!  Hope to see you in April!

It's Here!

Well... this is it!  Tonight is my last night to pack!  My group and I will be heading to Branson in the morning.  We plan to be there about 9:30 or so and start the unpacking and setting up

I just wanted to wish you all luck with your final preparations and be sure to travel safely when you do get on the road!  If you need anything... like directions!!!  Don't hesitate to call me on my cell... 417-880-2426.

We will see you when you get there!

Ok... I really can't wait now!!!

Happy Packing!!!!

Here we Go!

This is our last weekend to pack!  Have you figured out what you are going to work on?  Have you got it all packed!  Are you all organized or are you going just to have fun and work on whatever you happen to have packed!!!

Are you bringing cards for the Operation Write Home project?  Are you bringing stuff for the Scrap Pool and/or the Drop and Swap table?  Are you ready for a nice massage!  Have you figured out what snacks you are bringing!

Leave a comment and let us know!

And if you can't find Christmas Jammies, you are not alone!  A lot are having that problem, so I'm going go tie a "ticket" to wearing them... however, just for fun, if you bought a Retreat T-Shirt, plan to wear it Friday.  I want to get a group picture Friday night.

And Saturday, if you DID find Christmas Jammies... or have something RED or GREEN to wear or anything that's Christmas related (like raindeer antelopes!), there will be an extra drawing ticket waiting for you when you show up with something Christmas-y on!!!   Remember Saturday night is our Christmas Dinner... and of course, we will need festive pictures!

Gotta go!  More packing to do!  Will my house ever be the same again?

Massages at the Retreat!..... WOOHOO!!!

Here is the latest, latest news...

I'm so excited... and I just can't hide it!  And I'm so pleased to announce another NEW feature at the Retreat!!!  CHAIR MASSAGES!!! How awesome will it be to have a place to get "rubbed down" when your shoulders start to tighten or your hands start to cramp!

Myriam Boter, a friend of Lavon's, will be joining us for the retreat.  She is a scrapbooker and will be attending as a "retreat go-er", however, she has been gracious enough to offer to bring her services, too!

She will have times blocked off during the day (probably mid morning and later in the afternoon/evening) to accommodate us.  You will need to sign up so she can schedule her scrapbooking time.

Charge... just a $1.00 per minute!!  She says "most people can get relief from tension in 5 minutes of a specific modality that targets the affected area".  However, she is not limiting the massages to 5 minutes... you would just need to talk to her about your needs.  She sounds very flexible and completely willing to be of service to us!

Is that awesome or what!  I know I plan to be the very first one in the chair!
