Yes! We Are Alive!

Here's a quick update:

Antalya - has never been happier! It took a full 10 days, but then she suddenly turned a corner and doing great. Did I mention she is sleeping through the night and taking 2-3 hour naps? Yes, I am in momma's heaven!

Sunny - as soon as Antalya starting getting better, I got sick. I'm doing better now and for the first time in several months I feel like I am caught up on my sleep and waking up feeling rested.

Jason - has been busy, busy, busy with work. And since he works from home, I try to help out whenever I can - which translates into both us of being busy, busy, busy!

We're off quarantine - Yeah! We're back to a full schedule of EI toddler class on Tuesday, singing time at the library on Wednesday and Thursday, and we just started a Kindermusic class on Fridays. Plus we have had lots of family get togethers - and of course lots of trips to Costco at lunch time (that's when they have the most samples - Antalya loves it!)

Kitchen remodel - is almost done! I realize we started this about six months ago, we've just been taking our time. I am hopeful that by Christmas I will have a kitchen full of cabinets. I am super excited to have a place to put our dishes and food!

Thanksgiving - we got to spend the whole weekend with all Jason's family - yep, all 11 of the siblings were in town. It has been a couple years since we have seen them all. We had a lot of fun! We even went ice skating. Skating on the ice made me feel more young and free than I have in a long time. I think it is an activity I need to take up on a regular basis.

Good news - sorry, you are going to have to wait a couple weeks to hear the good news, but trust me - it's good!

I'll leave you with a picture of Jason with his parents and all his siblings. I think I got the best looking one of the bunch :)

I don't know. I'm partial to the man on the end left not right. I guess it all depends on which side of the camera you're on!

So glad to hear that Antalya is feeling better. Sleeping through the night? Yeah!!! That is always a good thing. I just have to say that I think you and Jason are icredible people and are amazing parents. Thanks for being great examples to me and my kids. Londyn still talks about Jason and how they share a love for fruit snacks. ;)

I am so glad to hear that the family is doing well. There is a lot to be thankful for. I am a sleep nazi so I was excited to hear that you were getting some much needed sleep. (And Antalya too!)

AAWww Sunny! Don't make me wonder for two weeks! Are you pregnant? or are you coming to Turkey? I don't know which one sounds better to me.
