What's Up?

Good question for the Smith Family! We've been traveling and just plain busy when we are here at home. There are some things that never change:)
We just returned from our trip to Italy. More to follow (along with the pics once I put them on the computer) about that adventure. It was wonderful and we were able to do part of it with great friends.
The boys want to get in a couple of days of skiing so they will probably head out this week or next. I don't ski so it's not on my agenda.
Now here we are in the final approach to Christmas. Still no tree up. The attempt to do so yesterday failed so I think that the boys will be working that issue today. All of the presents are here however, wrapped and piled up in the middle of the room.
Each of the boys got an advent calendar this year. One is a Playmobil theme and the other is Lego. They have had a great time opening it each day and finding a new part to the collection.
I've started back into a running routine. Going for a half-marathon in March in Praque and then I will attempt another marathon later in the year. Don't know exactly when yet, trying to figure that one out with the other things scheduled!
That's it in a nutshell and at least bringing everyone up to speed a bit. I'll get back to writing more.......

You need to come here and ski!! I can sit in the lodge with you! Last year I sat in the lodge while everyone else skied. It was fun - I people watched, read my book, and saved seats for lunch! But, if you don't come - I guess I will have to try skiing again! Corbin loved it - he cried when we had to leave - the lifts were shutting down and he refused to leave! Evan had a good time too!

I am glad you were able to get the boys the Advent calendars. They wanted to get one so bad last year and of course we couldn't find anything where we live in Missouri!
