christmas time

It's beginning to really feel like Christmas around here.

Saturday, December 05, 2009


We just unpacked the absolute last box that was in our house from moving. Yes, it took us 2 months but we finally finished. We still don't have anything hanging on the steps. I think I'll tackle that after Christmas. Our guest bed was also delivered this week so we are officially soliciting guests now. Please come visit.You have a brand new queen size bed waiting for you.

In other news, I'm getting very excited for my trip out to Utah. Only a week and a half left until Asher and I leave. I can't wait to see everyone. I haven't been to Utah in over a year. I know we are going to have such a great time!

lots of pictures from Thanksgiving weekend

We went up to Quinn's parent's house in Virginia for Thanksgiving weekend. We drove up after work on Wednesday night.

Thursday was Thanksgiving and Grandpa Airplane's birthday. We had a delicious birthday breakfast and then set to work on making a Thanksgiving dinner.

I think it turned out great!

Asher napped through dinner but joined us later to celebrate Grandpa's birthday.



Friday morning Quinn wanted Asher to bathe in Grandma's deluxe bathtub. So he did. He loved it!

Then we headed into D.C. for a trip to the Newsuem.  It was a very cool museum and I highly recommend it!

Here is Asher in front of some of the Berlin Wall.

There was a cool terrace with great views of the city.

They have a 9/11 exhibit that is very interesting. One part of the exhibit is all the front pages of various newspapers from the day after.

My personal favorite was from the San Franscisco Examiner.

(sorry it is out of focus)

They also had part of the radio tower from the north tower.

Saturday we took a trip to the mall and I was able to get some H&M shopping in. That night we met some old friends of Quinn Nick & Stephanie and Todd & Kelsey for dinner. We got to meet Nick & Stephanie's new daughter which is always fun. But being an idiot I forgot to bring my camera.

Sunday morning we woke up leisurely. Asher learned to play the piano from Grandma.


Then we packed up the car and headed home. It was a great weekend!
