We just got back from the most perfect Christmas in Washington. There is just something about that green and all those trees that is so rejuvenating. André's school schedule meant we could take a long trip and luckily my parents let us take over their house for two weeks. Plus, both my sisters surprised my dad by showing up at the house so we had a crazy, loud and super fun break. Here are a few highlights from A to Z.
Andrew making Rhett laugh as soon as we got there. They hit it off from the start!
Grandparent visits. We loved skyping and chatting with my grandparents.
Hitting golf balls on an overcast day at the driving range.
Ice Skating. Some of the kids were kamikazes on the ice, but we loved our laps at the Seattle Center rink.
Kitchen fun for the annual pie contest. Our cherry chocolate ice cream pie won most festive and most colorful, but there was some serious competition.
No alarm clocks for André!
I'm sure the people who live on the lake thought we were mental, but I loved it. New tradition?
Rice cereal. Rhett had his first solids at Nana's house and was so excited he could barely stand it.
Snoqualmie Falls. I feel like no trip home is complete without a trip here and we picked the perfect day to go.
Uno with Poppy. Always a good time.
Wet. Of course it rained a lot. But we got more than our fair share of sunny days!
Xtra chococolatey kids. Thanks, fondue.
Year End celebration. Games, fondue, glitter nails, and a movie = perfection
Zoo. As in, we turned the house into a zoo. But my parents are good sports and we had the best, crazy time.
I can't wait until the whole family is together again!
