Once again, I've fallen behind. We're midway through December and I'm finally catching up on November. Believe me, there is a TON to catch up on.
First of all, the Packards moved, which was hideous. We had one last (first) breakfast with the girls and pedicures to celebrate our friendship. We watched the boys the night before they left, then they came over for dessert and to say goodbye. We cried.
A few days later we packed up Big Red and drove to California. We spent a couple days with Nana and Papa, then headed north to San Francisco. Hannah fell in love with the Golden Gate Bridge over the summer and Adam really wanted to go to a professional NFL game, so we made both dreams come true in one fell swoop. We went to Alamo Square, Pier 39, Children's Fairyland in Oakland, and walked across the bridge. Allie and Jeff were with us for most of the time, so that was fun to be with them. We ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp which is something I've always wanted to do.
The next week Allie and Hanley came to Vegas so we could attend Time Out for Women. It was such a spiritual lift and just what I needed! Adam babysat Hanley and it was difficult because she's a mama's girl, and she wasn't feeling well, but I so appreciate Adam surprising me with the tickets and giving me a mommy's day out. He's a very thoughtful husband.
We went to Utah for Thanksgiving. The girls had so much fun at the Treehouse Museum, the train museum, City Creek, visiting family, eating "the feast" and having a Christmas party. My mom always does a great job taking care of her kids and grandkids and making holidays special!
