Christmas Spirit

This year Christmas has come up way too fast for me. I am usually one of those people that listen's to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, but I have now just started to listen to Christmas music. We have been super busy and time just keeps flying us by. Anyways, I have been trying to get in the holiday spirit by doing some of the must for the Christmas season before leaving on family vacation.

The first thing we did was go cut our Christmas tree down. It was cold, but sunny so it was a perfect fun day.

Max had so much fun watching daddy cut the tree down. He wants to be just like his dad.

Making Gingerbread house is another must for Christmas time.

Once again, I think the kids had more fun eating the candy instead of decorating it.

Another must do for Christmas time is see Santa. Max was a little scared at first so we spent about 10 minutes watching other kids sitting on Santa's lap and then finally he decided to give it a try.

We always have to decorate cookies for Christmas. The kids had so much fun decorating and eating the frosting.

We decided to get all dressed up and go downtown in Seattle to see Santa

Santa had his arms full with baby Mira and Chloe, so Max got the rocking chair

We always have to go on the Merry Go Round during Christmas time. First year that we didn't have to wait in line.

My dad treated us to Blue C Sushi and let me say that this place is delicious. My kids had so much fun watching all the food go by. They were so entertained. I love it.

Thanksgiving & Wedding

For Thanksgiving we went down to Rancho because Paul's brother got married the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was a fun trip and little tiring at the same time. Both the kids got sick while we were there so that was a little hard. But it was so good to see Paul's mom. She was able to come home for the wedding, so that was exciting because we have not seen her for about 1 1/2 years. We were sad not to see Ron there, but it was good to see him on Skype for the wedding.
This jeep was Max and Chloe's favorite toy to play with.

David and Elaine got married in San Diego and it was the perfect day ever. It was sunny, blue skies and about 80 degrees. Being in great weather like that made me really miss living in Ca.

My 2 favorite boys in my life.

The happy new couple

The wedding party

We tried to get a family picture by the temple, but with both kids sick with a fever it was impossible. This was the best that we could do.

It was so nice to see friends that we haven't seen in such a long time. All in all it was a good trip. It was a good Thanksgiving and a good wedding.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
