Winter in Washington!

Today we realized that we definitely aren’t in Texas anymore! ha! We drove 30 min. North this morning up near Snowqualmie to play in the snow! If we would have gone 20 more min., we would have gotten to some skiing and tubing areas. We will check that out for sure come Jan. and Feb. :)

We had a blast and the boys loved it!

Snowflake Lane~ Bellevue, WA

Every night in December, there is a celebration called Snowflake Lane down in Bellevue.They have the whole street lit up with snowflakes and lights, drummer boys playing music, fake snow blowing around, and lots of people are singing and dancing.

The boys seemed a little shy of course when people approached them, but overall it was a lot of fun!

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!


Well we have a smile and a few tears.. I think we did good! We were
going into it thinking both would cry, so this is a success! Santa was very nice & asked the boys what they wanted for Christmas. Hudson has been saying he wants a white helicopter for sometime now. Landon chimed in and asked for a green truck. Go figure.. Cars and trucks are still his favorite. :)

These two are the light of my life. They are precious!

Merry Christmas to ALL & wishing YOU much health & happiness for 2013!

I heart November

I love November for many reasons. It’s a beautiful time of year, the air is cool, the leaves are changing, the holidays are coming, and the crock pot is on…What’s there not to love?

Most importantly, it’s a time to share and show that we are thankful for life’s many blessings. I’m thankful for my wonderful family and the memories we are making here in Washington. Lately we’ve spent more time indoors, but it hasn’t stopped us from having fun.

Here are a few silly pics..

This is our indoor pony ride. :)

Throwing the sticky frog on the walls.
Making frito pie for the neighbors!
Just a daily traffic jam, that’s all.

Playing hide & seek.. only this kid hides for
10 seconds & then says, “here I am!”
Building a really large tower.
Think I’ll use the lego as a step stool!

More later… & hugs to all in TEXAS!

Puzzle Pro

Landon is really into puzzles lately & he will do the same one over and over and over & not get tired of it. I’m guessing Santa might bring him some puzzles this year! :)


So focused…

And here is my masterpiece!

This is how we roll…….

When it’s a little drizzly in Seattle, you can’t let it stop you from having fun outside. We are learning to throw on rain coats, hats, etc.. and GO!

So, this is how we roll on a Sunday morning!

1st Cul-de-sac Progressive Halloween party!

This past weekend, our cul-de-sac decided to have a progressive halloween party! It was so much fun & the kids had a blast.. We started out at Angela & Steve’s for appetizers & drinks, then moved to our house for games in the garage, then to Janet’s house for dinner, and then ending up at Huyen’s house for dessert. It got to be late & the kids were having fun at Janet’s, so we moved the dessert over there & skipped the last stop!

It’s the perfect way to have a long party, without one person hosting at their house the whole time. I highly recommend it!

Here are some pics of our fun night! :)
