Christmas in the Northwest

Christmas morning Grammy and Weston were hard at work; you can never have too many goodies for Christmas snacks :)
Spencer and Weston were so cute to watch this year. I didn't think they'd get as in to it at this age, boy was I wrong. Their faces and excitement were precious! Weston was overjoyed when he opened up some horses, play dough, and Madagascar.
He talked about "presents" all day. He did such a great job.
Cousin Spencer had a little too much sugar... We had so much fun playing with the boys. They are two peas in a pod.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Hope you're having a wonderful holiday!


In case you hadn't heard, Portland and Seattle were covered with feet of snow! This is our house before all the snow was done falling. There are actually five steps up to the front door that are totally hidden. I was stuck in LA on a work trip because the airports were shut down; canceling over two days of flights! The hidden blessing? Weston had some great quality time with family at my mom's, Ryan had so much time without us that he nearly finished our project of "the basement remodel", and I not only enjoyed some sunshine, I went to a movie for the first time in over two years! Thank you Lord for the one open seat I was able to find that allowed me to get home for Christmas with my family!

Little People

It's wonderful to go home over the holidays; family, food, relaxing in your pj's, reminiscing about old memories... It seems like every time I visit, we leave with more "stuff" than we came with. This Thanksgiving I was sent home with boxes of baby books, blankets and toys, which Weston has taken a liking to!
I remember setting up the perfect "home" for my little people for hours! It's so special to be able to do the same thing with my own son. Thanks Mom for keeping such great memories to share!

Ride Horses?!!!

"Ride horses?" is the first thing Weston says when he wakes up and the question that takes up 75% of the day... I don't know where it came from, but he loves horses. Actually any animal will do.
We stood in line over and over again at the Lights of Christmas this week with Grandpa and Grandma to ride all of the horses.
A cross between an uncomfortable smile and on the verge of screaming to get off Santa!
West and Spencer riding a choo choo train with Grandpa. Spencer is equally obsessed with trains.
After a night at Grandpa's house Weston is fully into Legos, and does quite well with them. Thanks Grandpa!


Ryan and I had SO much fun at our dear friends John and Krista's wedding. We spent some wonderful time with our friends, enjoyed sunshine, and had a weekend away!!!
Krista is beautiful! She is a special friend that I am blessed to have. It was an amazing wedding!
