Snowed in!

We have been in Seattle for about a week now and the weather is crazy! It is quite the winter wonderland here. Doug has ventured out of the house and is at the Seahawks game, GO HAWKS! We have been staying cozy indoors but have been walking around the Greenwood neighborhood for coffee and food. So far our trip has been very relaxing. We have been visiting with old friends and family every day. We may be braving the roads tomorrow and going up to Dougs family cabin, weather permitting. We will post pics of the trip soon!

Thanksgiving holiday weekend

We had a fun holiday weekend. Doug was off of school and I was off of work for 7 nights so we were really able to enjoy ourselves. Our small Thanksgiving dinner ended up being so much fun. In fact, we even dare say it was one of the best Thanksgivings ever. Some of the highlights were Doug face planting in the turkey and me lighting the candied yams on fire! Ask me later if you are interested in details. We ate and laughed until our bellies ached!
On Sat, Doug and I ventured up to Santa Fe for lunch and then the Ojo Caliente hot springs for a Cooper free day while Coop hung out with Grammy and Po. It was very relaxing for us. We ended the weekend with getting our Christmas tree. This year we will be spending nearly 2 weeks in Seattle so we decided to get a small tree. We also decided to get a living tree so that we can plant it in the yard once Christmas is over.
We hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend! Enjoy the pics...

How cute is the tree (and Doug)
