We were blessed to have celebrated our 20th Anniversary! As Jeff and I were planning what to do to honor the day, Ellie became rather put out that our plans didn’t include her. But, she quickly convinced us that she was an important component of our marriage and therefore she should be included in the celebration.
Papa and Nana (Larry & Janet) were kind enough to watch Ellie while Jeff and I went off to the Willows Lodge for two days by ourselves.
Then we picked up Ellie and checked into a hotel in Bellevue. She wanted to stay somewhere with a big pool! In addition to swimming, we went to the Snowflake Lane parade and did some Christmas shopping.
Ellie was right. She needed to be part of the celebration of our life together.
