Tree Hunting 2011

So, this year, I was a bit overwhelmed by the idea of bundling Callie up and heading to the mountains to pick out the perfect tree.....we opted out of the mountain trip this year and headed to the nearest Christmas tree farm. Not much to complain about - free hot chocolate, mini train rides, and kettle corn - yet, it took a lot for Preston to decide to pay SO much for a tree! (it took him days to deal with the cost - in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it comes up again!) Callie enjoyed it so much that she slept the entire time - o well....there's next year.
We ended up with a beautiful (cold) Seattle day. It doesn't get much better than this!

Laurel was much more excited about the tree hunting than Callie

How much?!!!! For this?!!!!

Time to decorate the tree - Callie stayed up for the whole decortating time! Yay!

Is this what I do?

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.
