Wow. It's been a while since we've posted. And a lot has happened.
Drew's parents came to visit.
We blessed Joaquin.
Now I have no clue where to start. We had so much fun with Drew's parents. We met them at the airport Sunday morning and took them straight to church for Joaquin's baby blessing. I'm sure they were beyond tired and exhausted but they were great sports dragging their luggage on the subway. Drew blessed Joaquin and then we were able to enjoy the primary program. I love the primary program. Isaac was very animated and into it. Before I had told him if he sang loud he could have a treat. He definitely earned it by coping the primary president's every move. It was really cute.
Later that evening we tried to let grandma & grandpa rest a little before we shipped them off to Barcelona the next morning. We wanted to give them a chance to see more of Spain and stay in a nice hotel to try and get caught up on sleep. (It's a really tough time change.) Wednesday we gladly welcomed them back. It was so nice to see how Isaac & Stella really warmed up to them so fast. They really love their grandparents. I'm sure Joaquin does too.
While they were here we went to a few museums, visited Retiro park, went to the Zoo, and explored Madrid. It was so fun! Thanks so much for coming. We really love you guys and miss you tons.
We also have friends! A new family moved to Spain a few weeks ago and we've been hanging out at parks and everywhere else ever since. It's been great. They have two little boys the same ages as Stella & Isaac and they all play really well together. I'm so excited to finally have a friend with kids here. It feels great.
We also had an awesome Thanksgiving Dinner with friends. I love everything about Thanksgiving. The pies, turkey, cranberry sauce, more pies, mashed potatoes and gravy, slush...I could go on forever. I love it and especially spending time with friends and family. I love how friends can become family.
After we ate we also chilled, played some Wii, watched movies, ate more, played settlers and watched the BYU v. Utah football game. Go Cougars! It was the perfect ending to a great night!
Now we can really start celebrating Christmas! I'm so excited. I love Christmas. I have most of my Christmas shopping done but you can always find more. This year we're also going to Paris and Euro-Disneyland. I can't wait. Three of my favorite things all in one; Christmas, Disneyland and my family all in Paris!
So hopefully I can stay on top of posting. Three kids ca keep you really busy. With Joaquin sleeping through the night I can't use my favorite excuse that I'm tired. We love everyone and miss you tons!
