Amelia has been interested in cooking this year. When she heard that dessert on New Year's Eve was going to be chocolate souffles, Amelia agreed to help make long as she got to lick the bowl. Recognizing the risks in making souffle, Amelia later tried to disguise her role in the finished dessert...luckily, they were great!

Zoolights 2011

We continued our holiday celebrations with a Boxing Day visit to Zoolights, a pretty amazing annual light show at the Point Defiance Zoo, as well as a model train show, carousel ride and dinner to top off the day. Soren not only loved the lights, but also the few animals we saw, saying "More Camel" for most of the ride home!

Holiday Fun

December has been a blur of fun holidays and visits from friends and family. After an early Chanukah, the kids counted down the rest of the month with chocolate and gingerbread houses, before Auntie Helen made it out of frozen London just in time for a fun Christmas. Soren particularly loved delivering presents to everyone else to open, while Princess Amelia put on a great fashion show!

More Thanksgiving Shots

We had a great, but quick, visit back to New Jersey and New York City over Thanksgiving. We spent a lot of time hanging out with Nana, Taid and Auntie Zoe, as well as the Lutches and Uncle Tim, enjoying the good weather and great food. We particularly enjoyed the new games that Amelia and Soren discovered (and taught the rest of us), from coaster-balancing to leaf badminton to team treadmill running.
