It has been far too long since I've posted anything on this blog and I apologize to all of my readers/fans out there! :) It has been a very busy couple of months and doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon.
September found us in Edmonton visiting family and friends and doing some training for our Shaklee leaders there. October was a wonderful vacation (first in a very long time!) for the two of us to celebrate our success in Shaklee with other top leaders and also have a lot of free time for us to do whatever we wanted. This included a day trip around the entire "Big Island" of Hawaii with stops in Hilo, the volcano, a black sand beach ending up in Kona. I got very sunburned the day before we left after only being out for little more than an hour. Of course, it may have had to do with the fact that I forgot to put sunscreen on my legs...
In November we were delighted to have my brother Douglas spend a week and celebrate American Thanksgiving together. I cooked a turkey for the three of us and we also had the traditional Moritz Thanksgiving fondue that weekend too.
December held two trips for us. One to Fresno to visit the boys, celebrate Jonathan's graduation and have Christmas with our wonderful sons. The other saw us drive 16 1/2 hours on the 24th to get to Edmonton in time for Christmas Eve, 3 days of power-visiting, and then a 17 hour drive back to Yakima. The really great part about this was having Andrew with us. He arrived on the 21st of December and went back to Fresno on the 31st just in time to celebrate the New Year with Jessica. It was our privilege to visit many of Lloyd's aunts this trip and especially to see Auntie Vi who passed away yesterday. We will miss her joyful heart!
Next week the travel saga continues with our annual trek to the Area Administrator's Retreat which will be in San Diego, CA. Since it is so close to the boys, we've invited them to come and spend the week with us. Luke is planning to be there for 5 days and the other two will probably only be able to be there a few days due to school and work commitments. We are excited to see them again!
I wish you all the best in the New Year and look forward to the next time we get to talk and/or visit!
