Thanksgiving Fun

After all of our travels this year, we decided to host Thanksgiving in Seattle. Nana, Taid and Auntie Zoe flew out, and Goggy and Uncle Wavy joined us for our wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. The kids had a blast over the holidays, from decorating the windows with Zoe, to hitting the local restaurants and ice cream/pinball parlor. Soren had a few days alone with Zoe and gave her a tour of his favorite spots, including showing off the local indoor sandpit and kids' yoga studios. We can't wait until they come back to visit us!

Sunny in Seattle

Nana and Taid just arrived in Seattle and brought the nice weather with them. We took a great hike on the Arboretum Waterfront Trail. The kids loved the hike, as well as pointing out all of the ducks, herons and kayakers we saw along the way.

Tough Choices

Amelia not only enjoyed watching us vote this weekend by filling out our mail-in ballots, but she also gave Mommy and Daddy some helpful suggestions for write-in candidates that she thought could get the job done!

The Bumblebee and the Witch

Amelia and Soren lucked into a two-day Halloween extravaganza this year. Amelia helped prepare the house by picking out some scarecrows for the yard and making a sign for the window. Then the kids got to go trick-or treating twice, first on Sunday at the local stores with Grandpa, Grandma Becky and our friends Autumn, Sonia, Keith and Denise, and then on Monday to some of the neighborhood homes. Amelia and Soren traded outfits several times during the festivities, so we always had at least one bumblebee or witch running around, as well as an occasional princess or ballerina.
