I just finished my first blog book. I've been wanting to make one for a long time, but it was always put at the bottom of the to do list. I'm so glad I finally got around to doing it, I'm thrilled with it and can't wait to get to another one. I have quite a few to catch up on. I used My Publisher, it's not really for blogs, I had to copy and paste the posts I wanted in. It doesn't automatically link to your blog, but the work was worth it. It turned out beautifully. It's also made me want to keep documenting...and I missed a number of things that happened this fall. So, even though it's December I'm going to back track a couple months.
In August we were missing Yiayia pretty bad and she was able to come for a visit. Since, moving picking up Papa and Yiayia from the airport is one of our favorite things to do. I love looking back at these excited blurry pictures and knowing how happy the kids were to see them.
We spent the weekend in Sun Valley. The children ask frequently if we can go back, we all had such a wonderful time. We stayed in an amazing hotel and our suite had two rooms, a living room, and kitchen. The children thought it was amazing and would have been happy to never leave. It was fun making our meals there. We brought games and were right near the pool which we loved playing in. We popped popcorn and watched movies with the kids, and mom got me watching "call the midwife."
We did venture out though. We took the gondola up the mountain and walked around the old lodge, went on a bike ride, which was kind of crazy. Riding bikes with little ones on big hills might not have been the best choice, but it's a fun memory and gave us lots of laughs. I think it was one of my favorite trips all year and I'm so thankful for the special time with Yiayia.
