Holiday Season

What a wonderful first Christmas!!
Callie was spoiled rotten by her grandparents, great gram, and aunts and uncles - and she, of course, was in heaven. We had 3 days to celebrate Christmas - and all of them were packed full of family and smiles.
We started Christmas Eve off by heading to church - Callie was quite intrigued by the glow sticks that were handed out during the service, then Preston and I made our traditional Christmas Eve dinner - sushi - YUM!
We spent Christmas morning in our pjs and opened a few gifts. Then we headed down to see the Knowles side of the family. After a wonderful dinner of ham, we headed down to Vancouver to spend a few days with the Graham side of the family. A great time!

First present - she was a pro at opening it with her mouth

Hanging with Daddy in pjs

Cousin shot - Callie got to lounge on all the others

Presents sure are exhausting!

Callie's new favorite person
So, Callie is normally VERY shy with people but the second she met Gram she was all smiles! (she even let Gram get her out of her car seat - no warm up time at all)

Pretty impressive Grammy - all kids are ready for bed, yet are all smiles for Gram

Hanging with Grandpa and Grandma

Playtime in Vancouver

Have I mentioned that she has found her feet - and yes, in case you were wondering, she can get them to her mouth

Cute hats ladies!

We had a wonderful Christmas and we are still working on getting Callie back to her normal schedule!

Sun River 2018

For mid winter break, we headed up to Sun River for the week. As always, it did not disappoint! The kids had a blast spending the week with Grandma and Grandpa, all their cousins, skiing, and playing in the snow. This year we started with no snow on the ground and ended with a blizzard that made driving home very tricky. Liam stayed home with Grandma while Callie and I skied. Although it is always hard to be left behind, he loves his Grandma so much and they had an absolute blast together. I'm also realizing that she took all the pictures so I have very few with her...major bummer!

We celebrated these 2 boys on this trip. 
When there is this many kids, you not only take over the whole run but there it is also very difficult to figure out which way to go....

Grandpa and his gang
Pretty soon we won't all fit on one couch.
Unfortunately our sister/dad ski day did not go as planned. Sarah took a spill the day before and was not able to ski with us for the rest of the trip


Husky Game

UW recently had a Girl Scout night at one of the Husky games. Preston was out hunting so I took the kiddos by myself (and met Sarah and Rey there). It went surprisingly well - especially since the game ended up being a 7:30 pm game. Luckily Liam napped the whole way there and was able to rally when it was game time. Callie's highlights of the game was being there with her cousins, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. She wasn't too interested in the football aspect. 
Although the stadium was not loud, Liam insisted on wearing headphones. He didn't take them off once and even fell asleep with them on in the car. 

Enthralled with the marching band
Hopefully some future Huskies!


We are now a family of 4 pretty impressive bike riders.
