A romantic Valentines's getaway!

What could be better than a nice romantic getaway to The Great Smoky Mountains

a wonderful suite with a full kitchen, living room with a fireplace, 2 king size beds and a huge hottub to relax in in your suite?

4 kids to enjoy it with you! Yes, we took our sons, our granddaughter and grandson on our romantic Valentine's Day trip! Don't panic, we all have our swim suits on! Barron and Adam were not in the hottub yet so we had Barron take this photo:


I also got to go to the 2 scrapbook stores in Sevierville while the gang played carpet golf. I took Jack with me and he ooh'd and ahh'd at all the stuff in the scrapbook stores. I got a couple of new toys to play with while there.
Monday, I also got an Embellishment Center from Makin Memories for being such an awesome Valentine!(my own interpretation)
We went yesterday for the shot in Barry's right eye. He says he is noticing some improvement in the left eye from the shot 3 weeks ago! He almost did not let the new doctor give him the shot though. It was $205 and the first one at the other doctor was $65. He questioned the difference in cost and I told him that I would prefer to pay the difference to driving 5 1/2 hours for the less expensive doctor. I know that the cost of the drug itself is $50 from the conversation with Dr. Fekrat and she charged $15 to administer the shot. So the new doctor in Gastonia is getting $155 to administer the same shot! What are you going to do though? Vision or no vision? Insurance does not cover these shots even though they work. Insurance will pay for the laser treatments to the tune of $600 each which does not restore vision, only reduces swelling. Makes no sense to me. Aetna will pay $600 for as many laser treatments as the doctor says are needed but will not pay for the shots of Avastin which dissolve the blood stains in his eyes and restore the vision. Even crazier is that Aetna will pay for the Avastin but not the procedure(giving of the shot) to administer the Avastin. So they cover the drug but not the shot. Can anybody make sense of that? Anyway, Barry may be recovering some of his vision. Y'all do not know how happy I am! Thanks for all of the continued prayers and fasting on Barry's behalf. We love you all so much!
I will get to making some cards to post! Check back for them later!

Sorry to have left you hangin'.
I got a couple of new stamp sets and a template set for making paper pocket books. Jack got some Valentine stickers which ended up stuck to his carseat!
The stamp sets have bees in them so I can send some stamped bees to Debbie to make cards for our troops. Here is her blog and details are there: http://studiobeecreations.blogspot.com/
