2011 was a pretty good year.
JANUARY--The month began with the arrival of Baby L.
And she just celebrated her 1st birthday yesterday.
Heidi and Daniel came to Winnipeg and we had a reception here.
On my 60th birthday I got on a plane for Texas to meet my newest granddaughter.
FEBRUARY--Baby Blessing Tour begins. It was so wonderful to see family and to be in California when Georgia was blessed.
MARCH--The second leg of the Baby Blessing Tour continued with a trip to Texas. Such a great trip. So much to see and the culmination of the trip was Baby L's blessing.
APRIL--The announcement of the Winnipeg Temple. So exciting.
MAY--The highlight of Mother's Day was skyping with our Elder. Such a treat.
JUNE--My very first half-marathon. All I could think of was--I DID IT!!!!
And then a few days later poor Brent had hernia surgery--glad I was there ; )
JULY--Our first visit to Minot to help with the flooding--overwhelming to see the devastation. It was so great to be part of the service project.
AUGUST--Going back to Minot to help with the clean-up.
SEPTEMBER--Another marathon, but the best part was getting to see family in Indiana, especially my little great grandson. By the way, there will be another one coming this year!!!! So very excited.
OCTOBER--Our fabulous trip to Switzerland. Such a great trip to visit the sites and see Amanda and Darren.
NOVEMBER--Celebrating American Thanksgiving with Elder Rob's buddies. I've had some great Thanksgivings, but there was something special about this one with them.
DECEMBER--A couple of things made for a great December:
Our missionary Christmas dinner
Spending time with family in Utah is always a treat. Allan's two sisters are always so great to open up their home to us. There was lots going on. We ate way too much, but it was worth every calorie and every pound ; ) So many fun conversations and great laughs.
And Christmas Day--
Being able to skype with our little Elder
