The Christmas Season

We love Christmas time and boy is it busy..  We've enjoyed planning parties, going to parties, baking treats, shopping, hanging lights, having friends over, reading stories, watching movies, etc., etc..  I haven't gotten my camera out much but here are a few photos I have taken.

Christmas Tree

This year we started our new tradition of going into the woods to cut down our own Christmas tree.  We had a nice drive and found a great tree.  It will be fun to explore a little more each year as the kids get older.





 It's the tallest tree we've had which is fun.

Special Visitors!

One of Daniel's favorite families from his mission in Brazil moved to Georgia back in May.  We received notice a couple weeks ago that they needed to take care of some paper work and chose to do it in Seattle so they could see him. Daniel was worried about being able to communicate since he hasn't spoken much Portuguese since his mission, but he did a little studying and was amazed at how much came back to him.  He was able to have a nice visit and hear about their experiences in the church, and of other families from his mission.  It was a very special reunion.

Family Pictures

My friend and I exchanged family picture taking.  It was good for me to be on the receiving end, I got to experience my kids not wanting to cooperate, planning outfits, and hoping that we get at least one decent picture.  And it was fun to have pictures of my own family to view and edit.

I took pictures of the kids then my friend took our family so it was pretty quick.
