Happy Thanksgiving!

27 Nov

It’s that time of year again. It’s a time when we like to talk about what we are thankful for. First and foremost, I am thankful for my beautiful family. I have a wonderful husband who drives me crazy sometimes, but I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather spend my days with. I have a sweet little angel who lights up every day of my life. She also drives me crazy sometimes, but then again she’s almost 2…what can I expect? I am thankful for my parents (all four of them) and the unique relationships I have with each of them. I am thankful for my extended family…my friends…who are there daily to support me in life’s journey.

We are truly blessed to have the life that we have and every day we try to remember to be grateful for it. So if I don’t say it enough: Thank you all! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The trip to Mexico has come and gone but the memories we made are simply awesome! There was Xel-Ha, Cozumel, three room changes, one hotel change, many, many beers, Miami Vice’s, banana dacquiris, lots of confusion, sea turtles, JP speaking Spanish, Deseo, me sick, Heather sick, Casie sick, obstacle course ping-pong, pyramids in the pool, pelicanos on take off, fried tacos, el pastor tacos, fish tacos, dancing the cha-cha-cha with Heather on the catamaran, four pictures with the El Segundo Herald, Heather not being able to keep her eyes open for at least 1/3 of the 320 pictures we took combined, boogie-boarding, friendship-bracelet making, more confusion, lots of laughter, too much food, the waiter who didn’t know how to remove bottle caps, Casie turning 40, Super Mario, matching outfits (unplanned), Tuti swimming in the deep ocean, Tuti losing a fin in the mangroves and Casie coming to his rescue, sea turtle spotting, colorful fish, warm days, cool nights, a jacuzzi gone awry…note to Mike: You cannot turn on the jets before the jacuzzi is full; it leads to one wet hotel room, chocolates on our pillows, turn down service, 2 trips to Mega in the heat of the morning because they don’t sell beer before 10 a.m.,…I could keep going but unless you were there you will remain “confused” as the locals say. Thank you to Nick, Heather, JP, Casie and Tuti for making this a trip full of wonderful memories!!! We had a blast and will be planning another one for departure in 2 years! Hope you all can make it!!! Here’s a link to all of the pictures:
