oh. hello twenty- eleven

twenty- ten was a full that I will remember well. we did a lot of traveling in twenty-ten. yes i said a lot of traveling!
in january, the hubs and i went with his sister and husband to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate my birthday.
we had such a wonderful time... then february arrived and lo and behold the hubs and i got a whim and flew to Vegas
to celebrate our 30 years years of wedded bliss! ;)  july we welcomed a second grandson...our middle daughter and son in law, had given us a sweet, oh so adorable grandson, yes... joy of joys and then on Christmas day twenty-oh nine, the eldest daughter had an ultrasound photo wrapped as a gift for me...yes that meant in july we were blessed with another grandchild! she and my son in law chose not to find out what they were having so it was with total surprise we welcomed another grandson!!! how awesome, the hubs and i had three daughters and when they were small someone had told us, "just you two will have all grandsons" hehe, so far that is true!!! i am so crazy in love with both these little boys, unbelievable love...i never did understand it until it actually happened to me, that joy and love at watching your daughters become mommies, unbelievable joy. so in july yes, we welcomed a little grandson then came august, a trip to last a lifetime. we traveled, oh yes we traveled... the hubs, myself & our youngest daughter. we started from seattle and flew to London, England,  visited...Brussels, Belguim, Paris, France, then off we went to a Villa in Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape for a whole week! after enjoying a week, it was off to Barcelona, Spain ,a cruise to Monte Carlo, Italy, Palma de Mallorca and back to Barcelona...yes i did say a trip to last a LIFETIME! we were gone a total of 3 weeks...

we were many blessings in the day to day of biggest? i watch my little grandsons twice a week  and yes, my heart overflows with love.

we finished off twenty-ten by spending time with our bestest of best friends. a quiet evening doing a puzzle, drinking a glass of wine and visiting...
i look forward to twenty-eleven and what it has in store for us and our family. we are blessed and we know it! time flies and i know i need to sit back once in awhile and just soak in the blessings. take stock in what we have and have been given. the blessings are there, sure the good & the bad are there, i just choose to look at the glass half full..blessings always and i choose to be happy!

thank you  the graphics fairy

may you have a blessed twenty-eleven...
be surrounded by those you love and enjoy the ride!

Wow, what a year...
blessed, indeed!
You definitely got
started on your
family before I did,
as we appear to be
about the same vintage,
only YOU have grandbabies
and mine are 12 and 15!
Loved the post with you
and your girlfriends ~
what fun. I hope this
years proves as full and
exciting as the last for
you, Melody!
