[Comments] (1) Good Place: My sister in law, Jenni just left this morning. She came to visit us for about 5 days, and I have to say she has a heart of gold. Jenni is wonder woman inc. She is the reason why lds mom's go on prozac. She does it ALL and makes it look easy. She's so darn gorgeous and you can't hate her for it because she is so nice too.

Lily was thrilled to share her room with Jenni. We put her in a sleeping bag on our floor at night but to fall asleep she insisted on going to sleep in the other bed next to Jenni's for a "sleepover". Then we would transfer her to our room. And when she woke up, she was obsessed with seeing what pj's Jenni had on in the morning. But next time Jenni comes, she has to bring Caden, so says Lily.

We got to have loads of fun while Jenni was here. Friday we picked her up at the airport and got cheesecake factory cheesecake and then went to Jake and Erin to catch up. Sat we got to go to La Cantera and Pei Wei, then girls night with some of our friends here. Monday we went to Pappasitos for half price fajitas for two-it was their 25th anniversary in case you were wondering. On Tues since it was Veteran's Day and the boys had school off, we let them watch the chillens while we got massages, lunch, and shopping at The Rim.

I had such a good time, I hope Jenni did too. I am so glad she was able to come out and visit us. It is great to have visitors, and she is the best guest. I hope lots of people come to see us while we are in DC next year because we have an open door policy for our family and friends.

This afternoon I took the kids over to my mom's house to pick up my southern living order. It was such a beautiful afternoon and we just sat on her deck while the kids played. We started cleaning the pool and the kids wanted to get in, so I let them. Of course they just meandered around the yard mostly, but Gunnar did get all the way in for 2 seconds. I was amazed that he got in the pool without any coaxing whatsoever. He stepped down the two steps and the third was too deep and his head bobbed up and down. I "saved" him of course, but he was in no danger, since I was watching him the whole time to see what he would do. He wouldn't go near the hot tub a couple weeks ago when we joined Ashley and David at the Hyatt Resort for hot tubing. Strange kid. Lily wanted to put on her suit on and put her feet in.

All in all, I am going to miss this place. It's Nov and I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt. It is sunny outside but not hot, and my kids can dip their feet in their grandma's pool a short drive away. What's not to love here for 8 months out of the year? Life is good.
