Oh Sonoma, How I love thee..

Jeff's company had their annual Christmas event in Sonoma this year. We were privileged enough to stay at the Eldorado Hotel.

We hauled ourselves into this very small car to visit a few wineries and then had a fabulous dinner at the Eldorado Kitchen. Not only was it a day and night away from the kids, but I had the opportunity to bond with all the people that have made my life possible these past few years. Jeff and I are beyond blessed to be a part of a company that not only survived these down times, but maintained a degree of excellence that continues to awe and inspire all of us who are lucky enough to be included.

None of this would have been possible without my parents. Once again, I am overwhelmed with thankfulness that my mom and dad are willing and able to keep the kids for us. I had no worries except for the fact that Lilly and James Raz would find us immensely boring once we got home. I did however manage to let Jeff watch the kids while I cooked a pot roast, my first, along with mashed potatoes, carrots and onions. Somehow, I also continue to amaze myself. :)

Off to watch the series finale of Monk and am desperately worried that either Monk dies, or Trudy is really alive or the entire series has been a dream. Oh the perils of living vicariously through tv.
